The socialists were out in force today. Well, not really force, but there were a few thousand of them:
I wouldn’t be surprised if more people show up for the Jon Stewart rally. Mockery is always where the real energy is on the left.
Oy! Speaking of crowd estimates…Crooks and Liars is claiming “175,000 to 200,000,” which just happens to be exactly what the event’s organizer claimed in this Politico story. Also in the Politico story, this:
Thousands of people packed the area around the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, but based on an unscientific estimate there were significantly fewer people than when Fox News’ Glenn Beck hosted the conservative “Restoring Honor” rally there Aug. 28. At that rally, attendees were forced to stand shoulder to shoulder the entire length of the Reflecting Pool.
Oh, and this AP assessment has got to hurt:
Organizers claimed they had as many participants as Beck’s rally. But Saturday’s crowds were less dense and didn’t reach as far to the edges as they did during Beck’s rally.
Waiting for the estimate from the same outfit that was hired by CBS to estimate the Beck rally. In fact, I’m waiting for any aerial of this thing. I have yet to see one.
This photo journal of the day is very nice. Hat tip to Jim Hoft on Twitter for that.
Verdict is in: One Nation not even close.
