Turnout was so bad that one of the organizers tried to claim that DC rallies “always set the record for low turnout.” Guess that guy’s never heard of the March on Washington. Or the Million Man March. Or this week’s Taxpayer Tea Party on April 15.
Also of note was a claim by liberal blogger Jane Hamsher that the real Tea Parties are “financed by Fox News” and that the movement is “just a bunch of people on the conservative end who are pissed off that they’re not the ones stealing right now.” Whatever that means. Of course, when I asked her about her comments afterward, she refused to answer and walked away.
