Well, John Stewart and Stephen Colbert hosted their Rally to Restore Sanity andor Fear rally in the shadow of the halls of America's Congress. Do you feel better?
This scooter-reporter suggests that there were 300,000 people in attendance there.
An on-stage announcement suggested that there were 150,000.
[ED: One is reporting a "gargantuan crowd" without providing what that means]
As you can see, there just aren't as many people at the non-funny, non-political rally as there was at the Restoring Honor rally.
The motorized-scooter reporter from TheStar.com suggests that the same number of people attended the Restoring Honor Rally as were at the Stewart Rally. Well, if they can call nearly 1 million people only 300,000 or less, then we can call their 300,000 to actually mean 75,000. This of course, is still much less than the 10-2-10 rally.
[UPDATE 1] Mollie Hemingway has tons of photos from her experience at the Rally.
[UPDATE 2] From these photos, it would appear that a number of people at the Rally were there for the Burning Man event as well. Hmmm, nice, Code Pink and the Truthers showed up too. Nohting like keeping sanity alive with those two groups.
And one of those photos showed lots of trash left. Oh, and there were black people in attendance. Diversity of two. Nice.
[UPDATE 3] When you hold a rally that attracts NAMBLA, are you really promoting the Sanity portion of the rally or the ... FEAR? Directorblue has lots of CHOICE photos from this SANE event. (cough, cough)
