CSPAN is airing the leftist One Socialist Nation rally today in Washington DC. Unfortunately, they didnt have a good crowd shot of the turnout
So they used a photo from a Glenn Beck tea party rally.

We need to rally together and send email to CSPAN for this. They have plenty of cameras.
The crowd is only 6-people deep at the fencing from what I saw on CSPAN and many chairs are empty.
And what about the TRASH?
You know the Capitol Police are going to be wishing the crowd was from the Tea Party and not the Liberally Littering Party.
I noticed that myself. It’s funny that this whole “how big is the crowd” thing is coming back to haunt the libs. They were obsessed with Beck’s rally - even to the point of saying that the attendees were deliberately “spreading out” to cover as large a space as possible.
Today, I saw a comment on DU suggesting that the people at today’s rally “spread out”. Someone else also whined that their people were too “poor” to come to Washington. Also, complaints that there hadn’t been enough publicity about the event beforehand. It’s really funny to watch!
after this rally is over, c-span is going to open up their phone lines . please call on ANY of these lines and tell them to stop being shills for the undemocratic party!
Republicans: (202) 737-0001
Democrats: (202) 737-0002
Independents: (202) 628-0205
call any of these numbers!! get through and accuse them live on air!
Is Gateway pundit blocked?
Looks like lots of empty white chairs near the front.
this will put another chill wind up obummer’s back - and all the rest of ‘em.
and the “well, many are too poor to get there” mantra - right.
I remember for the 1980 Reagan election. The MSM, unimpeded with the truth from the nonexistent Internet - had all polls showing Reagan losing by 2 1o 1.
Then there was a phone in poll, which could not be skewed as everyone could call in. It cost .50 cents.
Millions called. And indeed, it WAS 2 to 1 - FOR Reagan.
The media went into cardiac arrest - and then the mantra was: “Well, that's because the rich republicans could call in more than once” (I wore my finger out (those were the days of rotary dial) for almost 3 hours before I could get through to register my vote.)
WE should have another phone in vote a few days before the election.

Someone tell Glenn Beck!
just mentioned by Joe Madison at rally
It’s just after 2 and we already have more people at #DC10210 than Glenn Beck had. And people are still pouring in!
Bawahahaha!! Just what in the heck are these people smoking? I hate to break it to them but when an MSNBC field reporter (MSNBC is giving this thing live coverage. No bias there. What a shock!!!) calls it a “respectable” crowd...it pretty much sums it up. Sorry libs try again.
The current camera angle for people speaking at the podium is making all of them look like midgets, all you can see is their heads. ! haha !
I’ve seen more people than that turn out for an Emerson, Lake and Palmer tribute band.
Going by leftist rallies in the past that grass will have lots of trash on it after it is over.
Will they show it? Unless we had someone on the ground we’re stuck with whatever they release.
