Some further thoughts on Saturday's One Nation Working Together rally in D.C.:
-- As you can see from some of these shots (and the video we ran yesterday), the crowd was amazingly diverse: It drew people of all colors and persuasions -- except, of course, conservatives. That was quite a contrast with the Beckapalooza snorefest, which was amazingly white and otherwise perfectly monotone.
-- And, um, so much for that Liberal Media Bias myth, eh? CNN barely covered it at all. Of course, Fox carried nary a word of it. None of the major networks -- CBS, NBC, ABC or Fox -- even bothered to report on it. And over at the WaPo, the story reported only "tens of thousands" attended -- when in fact the numbers clearly exceeded 100,000.
-- In stark contrast to the Tea Parties, there was relatively little kookery at the rally. There was a tiny handful of 9/11 Troofers encamped on the back fringes, and there were some far-left radical groups similarly parked along the edges of the rally. But the masses there were clearly representative of mainstream progressive organizations like the NAACP, AFL-CIO, SEIU, and NCLR. Nonetheless, expect to hear all about how the rally was rife with far-left nutcases from our friends in the wingnutsophere.
Meanwhile, here's a sampler of some of the signs at the rally:
