All the King's Horses and all the Kings Slaves Couldn't Put Butts in the Streets

Imagine that: all of Caesar's subjects from across all spectrums of the leftist universe couldn't fill a ...... tooth. Oprah, Jon Stewart, ACORN, SEIU -- union attendance was mandatory. Sharpton and his gang pay folks ($65 a day) to show up at their hate fests.

Astroturf? Thousands Given Free Bus Rides by Unions & NAACP to One Nation Rally

Worse, these bloodsuckers and parasites trashed the World War II Memorial.

Leftist and Media Double-Standards on Socialist 'One Nation' Rally Reporting American Power

It's nothing new, of course, but the media's campaign to downplay the left's communist-dominated "One Nation" protest yesterday needs to be highlighted nevertheless.

The first thing to notice is this photograph on crowd size comparisons from "Restoring Honor" and "One Nation" (via Old Retired Petty Officer).
Crowd estimates have an "outsized" importance when the press and leftist blogs seek to minimize and ridicule the tea parties. But as soon as Democrat-Socialists march on D.C., wild claims of "double" the size of the Glenn Beck rally get wide play. Tom Maguire reports on the widely divergent crowd-size estimates, as well as systematic efforts to withhold on-the-ground reports (MSNBC edited out AP's first-hand report indicating that "Saturday's crowds were less dense and didn't reach as far to the edges as they did during Beck's rally"). And while some lefty blogs continue to pump up bogus "larger" crowd numbers, some have scaled back their claims as the facts have become available. The Political Carnival, which posted two entries yesterday boasting bigger numbers for "One Nation," has now issued a hilarious retraction, asking "Does Size Matter?" Well obviously it did yesterday, but now we have this: "While it is a visual indicator of enthusiasm and support, the size of a crowd isn’t as important as the content, message, and tone of the event."
