That's a lot of astroturf! 


Today's righty protest in Washington is drawing a big crowd, clouds and rain notwithstanding...







UPDATE: The demonstration is over now (late afternoon Saturday), but at the time of this post there was quite the throng.

Must be costing the health insurance guys and American Nazi Party a freakin' fortune.

Right now the camera image shows empty streets. Maybe the protest is over. Then again, the flag is at full staff. I've heard that some of the cameras are deliberately set to show outdated images. Is that happening here?

Go look at the still photo on instapundit. In that picture, the weather is overcast and cloudy, the flag is at half mast, and the streets are completely filled with people.

The "live" camera feed was soon changed, showing a flag at full staff, different weather, and empty streets, and has stayed that way through the end of the demonstration.

I watched the various camera feeds as the crowd was dispersing. There should have been tens of thousands of people crowding the streets, yet all of the traffic cameras around the mall show empty streets. It's an interesting story, very Orwellian, if anyone cares to investigate it.

Hopefully Obama will treat these protestors with the same thoughtful consideration that George Bush accorded to anti war protestors in 2003.

The danger implicit in following Bush "Stay the Course" example is ending up like Bush at second term's end. Can Obama take that kind of hardship?

Thoughtful consideration? As with everything in the Bush administration that is an oxymoron. I suspect that Obama will treat the protesters better, couldn't be much worse.

Here is some thoughtful consideration from those demonstrating against Dubya. What sort of THOUGHTFUL CONSIDERATION did those demonstrators shown in the link merit? Inquiring minds want to know.

It's ok Boludu, as usual you are dragging the bottom of the river to make your "point".

Saw some posters at the Washington "tea Bag" party that would make you blush.


Go Trojans!!!

Pasadena Vicki, since you did not answer my question the first time, I will repeat it.

What sort of THOUGHTFUL CONSIDERATION did those demonstrators shown in the link merit? Inquiring minds want to know. ( from 11:01 p.m.)

I think you've confused Vicki with someone who is interested in a two-way, civil discussion.

Why is the flag at half mast?
