RICHMOND — President Barack Obama seemed to offer a ringing endorsement Wednesday for “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart’s upcoming Rally to Restore Sanity – although he didn’t get the name quite right.

“I was amused — Jon Stewart, you know, the host of The Daily Show, apparently he’s going to host a rally called something like Americans in favor of a return to sanity, or something like that,” Obama told a crowd gathered around a living room in a comfortable suburban home. “And his point was 70 percent of the people – it doesn’t matter what political affiliation –70 percent of folks are just like you. They go about their business. They work hard every day. They’re looking after their families. They don’t go around calling people names. They don’t make stuff up.”
