Citizens United and Young America's Foundation organized this Rally for the Troops, Rally for America; with a number of groups who co-sponsored it, including the DC Chapter of Free Republic.

I just got home (I took the long way) so I don't even know if Angelwood or Kristinn have gotten an official After-Action Report up yet. Local radio news (WMAL and WTOP) reported "a few hundred" in attendance at this rally. Check it out and see if you believe that estimate. It was a great day for everyone who was there. I'll put my photos up tomorrow. Tonight I'm going to sit back and watch CSPAN.

That was funny about using the U.N.'s phones for the troops to call home -- on the U.N.'s nickel!

Their own schedule says they will play it at 3:50 or so AM

So, I set the vcr....then found this thread 22 minutes after they started playing the show...

Thanks for being there today. I saw about an hour plus of it live today on C-SPAN, until they ran into technical difficulties with the live feed (about five minutes after Taziz-Al xxxxx got on stage). Bump!

G-Man: "Ask Nancy Pelosi, the great feminist, what she thinks about that!" (In reference to Jessie Lynch's torture by the bad guys, and witch-o-losi's recent attacks).

Great speach so far......

24 million Iraqis will never forget the sacrifices made by these men and women! Well put, Aziz Atlaee! It's heartening to see Iraqis speaking for Iraqis.

Aziz Atlaee just gave one hell of a speech. He tore up the Arab world that stood by and did nothing.

Do you, or does anyone, know about the yellow flag with three red stripes? I saw several in the crowd but I can't place it.

No AAR yet. I have been sitting on my hands....

South Vietnam. There were many Vietnamese folks in the crowd, and a Vietnamese newspaper was also a co-sponsor. They had some great signs and banners, which I took pictures of and will post tomorrow.

Angelwood and Kristinn will get a report up as soon as they are able. They have to field calls from the press a lot more lately; press comes to DC Chapter a lot now for comment and info on the leftists - thanks to the hard work of folks like dagnabbit and the rest who compile bios on their leaders. But sometimes even when we spoonfeed all the facts to the media, they still get it screwed up. Go figure.

P.S. Trueblackman did a recon into the leftists' rally, and he reported to me this evening that CNN is a right-wing news organization. According to the lefties. What a riot!

For a C-SPAN presentation, there have been an AWFUL lot of FoxNews plugs and references so far.

Chickie---you got that right. This is refreshing to a point; it seems so unusual to watch Cspan, after flipping past it quickly for so many months as the producers generally choose to show lily-livered-liberal hatespeach.

This is a nice little video thing they have going on.

Don Smith reminded the crowd about a large gathering, upwards of 500,000 motorcyclists expected on Memorial day in DC. Rolling Thunder!

WOW!! Is it just me, or are we starting to get HUGE numbers for the pro America rallies while the anti-Bush protesters are being marginalized but for a few pockets of troublemakers here and there. Looks fantastic! Wish I could have been there!

Have you notice that lady down in the front row in the black dress (I think with an an older one by her side)---she knows every word to every verse of every song so far, and waves her flag with the down beat. LOL!!
