"Conservative Woodstock Rocks the Capital

Patriotic anti-big-government taxpayers blast through the million protester mark
September 12, 2009, Washington, D.C.

Americans flooded D.C. in what people in the crowd were calling “a conservative Woodstock”. Like the liberal Woodstock of the ’60s, thousands were rumored stranded on freeways. Some walked in to DC, ditching their cars and busses. I walked with a 5 deep 6 block long column of protesters from Pennsylvania who had walked miles from where they had to leave their busses. Networks including Fox News continued through the time I’m writing this at 8 p.m. local Eastern time reporting that “tens of thousands” showed up. Whasup with that?  When will we get some reliable reporting out of the corporate media types? UPDATE: Two days later, there is still no conclusive count of the participants. Michelle Malkin’s site goes over the whole issue on a post linked at the end of this article.

Protesters flooded Washington today in what people in the crowd are calling “a conservative Woodstock”. Like the liberal Woodstock of the ’60s, thousands were rumored stranded on freeways. Some walked in to DC, ditching their cars and busses. I walked with a 5 deep 6 block long column of protesters from Pennsylvania who told me they had walked miles from where they were forced by gridlock to leave their busses. Networks including Fox News continued through the time I’m writing this at 8 p.m. local Eastern time reporting that “tens of thousands” showed up. What is up with that?  When will we get some reliable reporting out of the corporate media types? UPDATE: Two days later, there is still no conclusive count of the participants.

"........Oh, and by the way, these people didn’t leave tons of garbage behind when they left. Actually they left no trash behind at all. ......"

Thanks JAP!! Some of the signs and slogans were really good.

This one gives a panoramic view of the whole thing. Amazing shot.

Thanks Rick!! Understand Pelosi was doing her best Clarabell impersonation about the rally. Poor thing she's losing it, needs to go home play with her grandchildren.
