  • Estimates are 60K-75K. Roughly 6-7.5% of Beck's estimated total for this particular hate fest.

  • Why are you worried about it? If the event was insignificant why bring it up?

    Oh' that's right, the event was significant and the liberal legislators know they will literally be running for their lives in 2010

    If it is so relevant, why are the republicans working it out with the democrats?

  • You know what the funny thing is? I heard the 2 mil number bounced around like it was a fact, more accurate estimates (60-80g) were derided as biased and lies, and that whole ABC hullabaloo, the perfect example of people quoting other people instead of going to the original source (in this case ABC, who never used the 1-2 mil number, finally called out the liars who were first misquoting them and then accusing them of lying about it later.) To me, this is a perfect example of some of the right wing rhetoric. I'll bet Beck and the others just glide by these facts with a little dig on the "MSM" to go along with it.
