    A friend of mine went to that rally.

    He's a Rep and he said he had a great time.

    He also said isn't wasn't about left or right at all. He met folks from all parties and some that dont' have any party and politics wasn't even a thought for any of em.

    They just had fun listening to the performers.

    I read a blurb in which the Mainstream Media Outlet (think it was ABC) described the crowd as HUGE, and later in the article estimated attendance at 60,000.

    If 60,000 is HUGE, what does that make the 500,000 plus who turned up for Beck's rally?

    Stewart beat Beck. The rally was Republicans, Democrats, Independents, and everything in between, just enjoying the day and wonderful entertainment. Don/t be mad.

    That's not actually a scientific way of measuring a crowd, Little Lefty. Personally, I'll accept what I was told this afternoon.... by actually qualified Professors who specialize in estimating crowd sizes.... using actual scientific methodology. They said:

    Beck Rally: 345,000 (plus or minus 10,000)

    Stewart Rally: 320,000 (plus or minus 10,000)

    So, basically, it's a tie.
