According to a McClatchy reporter (no conservative bastion there!),
WASHINGTON — Hundreds of thousands of people (despite efforts from Google Maps*) streamed onto the National Mall for a rally featuring Fox News personality Glenn Beck and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate.
By contrast, a counter rally held by the Rev. Al Sharpton drew about two to three thousand. To channel Ann Richards: "Poor Al! He can't hep it! He was born with a silver foot in his mouth!"
Whenever possible, Al, people vote with their feet.
