Amazing Turnout at Lincoln Memorial for Glenn Beck Rally

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.

*Parenthetical mine

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.


  1., who shot the aerials of the rally today and has done the estimates for several big DC area events pegs the attendance at 87,000 +/- 9,000. If you add the 9K you get 96,000 which is very close to Beck's original estimate that there'd be 100K people showing up today.

  2. If that's true, then he only beat Sharpton by about 33 to 1.
