Unless Democrats quickly move to “differentiate themselves” from the Socialists and Communists who participated in yesterday’s sparsely attended (compared to August’s “Restore Honor” rally*), we can safely say they’re representative of their party.
I mean, we’re just applying the standard Barney Frank wants applied to Republicans to his own party. And there is greater evidence of socialist & communist participation at this rally than there has been of hateful rhetoric at Tea Parties.
HAP has video of the litter on the Mall after today’s rally (including a video of trash left at the WWII memorial). Presumably it’ll be the job of a separate set of union workers to clean that up. Compare that to the condition of the Mall after Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor rally.
In comparison though, today’s rally still doesn’t live up to the Barackalypse at the Mall after Obama’s inauguration.
