Just posted on a friend’s Facebook page, where there was excitement about the size of the crowds:
“Maybe it’s a good sign for our economy? — that so many people either don’t need to work, or are being paid to be there.”

The sign Nance found truly chilling was:
“”We came unarmed…this time.”

One of the pictures of the crowd being passed around today is actually of the 2004 Promise Keepers march. The Museum of The American Indian, which was built since then, is not in the picture.

Oops.
It looked like an avenue full of folks on tv, wonder why they’d bother with using old stills to make it seem even bigger then?

This is interesting — seems like people at tea party protests have the same right to “revise and extend” their remarks that Congressfolk do??

Joe Klein in TIME:

Until recently, the Republican Party contained a strong moderate wing. It was a Republican, the lawyer Joseph Welch, who delivered the coup de grâce to Senator McCarthy when he said, “Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last?” Where is the Republican who would dare say that to Rush Limbaugh, who has compared the President of the United States to Adolf Hitler?

. . .something about the actual state of play on health care: the nutters are a tiny minority; the Republicans are curling themselves into a tight, white, extremist bubble — but there may be enough of them raising dust to render creative public policy impossible. Some righteous anger seems called for, but that’s not Obama’s style. He will have to come up with something, though — and he will have to do it without the tiniest scintilla of help from the Republican Party.

Here’s something true to be out protesting, assuming that these self-proclaimed Christians were good conservatives and the conservatives were good Christians:

When Getting Beaten By Your Husband Is A Pre-Existing Condition

by Ryan Grim

With the White House zeroing in on the insurance-industry practice of discriminating against clients based on pre-existing conditions, administration allies are calling attention to how broadly insurers interpret the term to maximize profits.

It turns out that in eight states, plus the District of Columbia, getting beaten up by your spouse is a pre-existing condition.

Under the cold logic of the insurance industry, it makes perfect sense: If you are in a marriage with someone who has beaten you in the past, you’re more likely to get beaten again than the average person and are therefore more expensive to insure.

In human terms, it’s a second punishment for a victim of domestic violence.
