    Jon Stewart’s “Rally to Restore Sanity” on Saturday started out as a spoof of Glenn Beck’s “Rally to Restore Honor,” but the parody proved bigger than the real thing.
    CBS News reports Stewart’s event drew 215,000 people to the National Mall in Washington, based on a crowd estimate from AirPhotosLive.com.

    The same company, which examines aerial photos of crowds to gauge attendance, estimated between 78,000 and 96,000 people attended Beck’s rally in August.

    That estimate of Beck’s crowd proved very controversial, as various sources reported wildly different numbers.
