John Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s rallies on Saturday are inspring "bears" to come out to the National Mall.

The Sunlight Foundation, a non-profit organization that uses “technology and ideas to make government transparent and accountable,” says it is planning to attend the rally dressed as bears -- of the grizzly, panda and teddy variety.

“Stephen Colbert wants us to be afraid of bears and of improving our government, but we know better,” says the Sunlight Foundation. “Instead of giving into fear, Sunlight will be taking a stand for open government -- by dressing as bears.”

An assortment of costumed bears should make for an even more interesting Saturday down at the National Mall.
