Like Allahpundt, I’ve been trying to get an actual number of people who rallied in Washington yesterday against big government. It seems the two million figure in one British paper was off the mark. It seems the turnout was easily in the “healthy six figures.”
No matter what the final total turns out to be, you can bet that the MSM and left-wing blogs will do many a story and many a post on how the right-wing blogs overestimated the crowd size and therefore the movement isn’t as big as they claim it is. And therefore should not be taken seriously.
Just a thought.
UPDATE from Bruce (GayPatriot): Astonishingly, the NY Times shoots down two liberal myths & strawmen about the Tea Parties in their coverage of the 9/12 protests!
The demonstrators numbered well into the tens of thousands, though the police declined to estimate the size of the crowd.  Many came on their own and were not part of an organization or group. But  the magnitude of the rally took the authorities by surprise, with throngs of people streaming from the White House to Capitol Hill for more than three hours.
