Oprah Winfrey is apparently not a member of the Colbert Nation.

Taking her penchant for gift-giving to an entirely different venue, the talk show queen appeared via satellite on Thursday night's Daily Show and announced she was treating Jon Stewart's studio audience to a free trip to Washington, D.C., for his "Rally to Restore Sanity" on Oct. 30.

Eat that, Stephen Colbert!

The event has technically been renamed the "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear" since Stewart's rival couldn't get a permit for his separate wingding.

"I think that we need a little bit more sanity in the world," Winfrey said as Colbert mock cringed. "I wanted to show my support for you, Jon, and also for your audience. So here's what I did: I had my staff sneak into your studio early this morning with a little gift."

Oprah then instructed audience members to look under their seats where they found red envelopes, each of which contained free tickets to the rally, plane tickets and hotel accommodations.

On The Colbert Report later on, the fake pundit gave his audience the great news as well. Pulling an Oprah, Colbert shouted, "You're going to the rally! You're going to the rally!"

It's not Australia, but still pretty cool.
