"Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear." Anybody go?

From the look of the crowd, Fox News estimated 457 million people attended.

I like Kareem....too bad he is a terrorist.

More than 5 billion, according to Steven Colbert. However, the CBS estimate was 215,000 vs 87,000 for Glenn Beck's rally. According the MSM, that means that the latter was a significantly sized protest against the Administration's policies while the former was a large audience of fun-loving, non-political folk for a comedy show. (Beck's event, of course, was the real comedy show.)

CBS used DemCount for both...all one needs to do is look at the photos...

DemCount is what screws the dems up every time. They have a real event, with real numbers and a message. They then go and make up numbers which immediately become the story as everyone else can note the fantasy and laugh.

My Local leftist forum had a thread on the local supporting rally. After the normal leftist dross and insults, they lied about turnout and then were foolish enough to link to the local paper which gave crowd size half what the lefties claimed.

Res Ipsa Loquitur...it is as it is. To use an old phrase, "Who ya gonna believe, the leftist true believers or your own lying eyes"

JIMV, the joke is that they all over-estimate the size of their crowds. OK?

Best sign spotted in the news reports:

"Hyperbole is the worst thing ever".

True...but only the left makes a cottage industry of overestimating their numbers to the point where they get laughed at and underestimating their opposition to the point a simple photo belies their numbers.

The sad part is in the question...

Why make up numbers so easily dis-proven when they have a good turnout using real numbers?

They change the story from their event to their invented numbers.

They had a good 200K yesterday, and 500 in my local event...why pretend they have so many more when a simple photo says no?

I guess you forget Fox News pulling their pics of the Teabagger Rally after it was proven that the pics were taken years ago?

JIMV, wake up.

Everybody does it. Your constant apologies for the immaculate right make you look doltish.

Be more than the tebaggers' lap dog.
