I don't know who it is, but it looks like Mancow. I'm sure it is not him because I saw this guy up close and negated that. Well, who is it?

I had a great time... it was an outstanding lineup and an excellent venue. I noted that there were a number of people up at the monument who had stopped to listen to the messages from the stage. I guess my count (probably low) at the peak was about 120-150. So for the press that is 200.

Thanks to the organizers of this event who took the time and the expense to make a good thing happen.

I counted 200 in the crowd at one point with more people walking toward the rally. The people were coming and going throughout because it got cold standing on 6 inches of snow for hours. Some people stayed for the whole rally -- hardy folks -- and there were some who had been walking their dogs who stopped to join the rally. We ran out of small flags to hand out and we had approximately 150; they were all gone halfway through the 3 hour program.

The visitors to the Washington Monument would turn toward the stage and listen to our speakers as they were waiting in line and some stayed for long periods of time to listen.

We had 8,000 to 10,000 show up at the houston rally. It was great.

The sound quality up at the monument was perfectly clear. Groups of tourists waited in groups for tours which started every 30 minutes, so te rally speakers had a larger audience than just the folks in the snow.

So for the press that is 200.

Sadly, a brief mention on FoxNews tonight said that there were competing rallies in DC today and ours had about 50 people!!!

Hi!.. Thanks for posting the photos... it was a great event and it was not that cold. I wish it went longer. We should have done some curbside educating after the rally. Joe and I are featured in the photo dscn1112,. We had various signs, they read as follows:peace with Freedom in the Middle East;N. Korea is the reason Saddam must go;If you don't like Bush, kiss my POTUS; We love our troops; "All that is necessary for evil to succeed is for the good to do nothing";It's not about OIL. It's about: Sarin, Ricin, Small Pox, cyanide, plague, Anthrax, etc.; IRAQ: Is someone in your family suffering from : Torture, Rape, Poison Gas?
WE CAN HELP! Call "W" at 202-456-1111;BUSH IS PRESIDENT. (he does not play one on TV);PEACENIKS: Consider the ANTI- Terrorist point of view; THIS IS THE WAR ON TERROR (duhh).
The coolest poster was of W as a bulky Uncle Sam, ready to kick ass!.. Where can I get copies of that! Thanks alot.

I saw you there, those signs were great and you guys held them nobley.

"BUSH IS PRESIDENT. (he does not play one on TV)" Was my favorite, the short guy was holding that one.

I was the loud one with the black umbrella and the Scary looking black Outback Trenchcoat. I can be found in the fotos lurking in the background, (where I prefer) like "where's waldo" or "The Mothman"

Your pictures are great! God bless all of you for the hard work. It looks like it was a great rally. I was especially touched by the photos of what looked like Kurdish people on the stage holding signs. (Funny how we don't hear much about their plight in the media.) You guys are like a breath of fresh air - keep up the good work!

I was standing behind Bruce. Very nice guy. We met up again walking to the Ronald Reagan Building parking garage. He got many honks for his sign. It took us a minute to figure out why people were honking. It was fantastic. And boy, standing on that snow in sneakers was COLD.
