There actually looks like bear spots to stand and breath. I am jealous at the rally to restore sanity there was NO bare spots to stand, because it was so packed.

It only APPEARED packed because of the camera angles…compare overhead shots of the Beck rally and the Rally to Restore Mockery/Snark..if you can even find one of the RtSM/S.

The beauty is that Glenn Beck, the loonie fearmonger, had the freedom to hold his rally, AND Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert have the freedom to hold theirs – which I am watching right now and which has, without question, a MUCH larger crowd. Packed in without a speck of ground showing between people, as far as the eye can see. With all its problems, we are the luckiest citizens of the greatest country in the world, and when we start insisting that our politicians STOP taking money from corporations and REALLY represent the PEOPLE, we’ll get back on track. May we all remember where we are!!!

Glenn Beck is a ray of hope among a cadre of liberal media empires colluding against the sheep to keep them uninformed.

I think “pawn” is probably appropriate. There are no liberal media empires. I only wish. Sadly, nothing could be further from the truth.

Please. Your immediate personal attack shows your a: Liberalism and b:the weakness of your argument.

No liberal media empires? Uh, OK.

Might want to talk to Ted Turner or George Soros about that.

What a joke. You all spew your hate for Obama and his “radical” ways. His policies focus on the average American not the greedy corporations that Bush favored. All of you who make less than $200,000.00 a year are just hurting yourself by supporting people like Beck and Palin (who both make well over a million dollars a year). Obama is a good, honest man. He has not raised the deficit. Bush and the Republicans did that for America. In addition, if you want to be like other radical religious countries that give no personal rights to its citizens than go ahead and keep on believing that Religion should run our country. And if you favor corporations over the individual American than you go ahead and support people like Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck, Sarah Palin and all the other corporate loving celebrities. Because that is all those three are, celebrities… Read more »

Wow… I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.
Glenn Blecccckkk is a farking NAZI and his followers are brown-shirts.
God help us all if these fools don’t Darwin themselves out of existence soon.

Measuring with Google Earth’s ruler, I put the south side at from 350 to 650 feet wide, the north at 250. Those are ball-park estimates, of course.

But, Moretap, I think you goofed on that 5 square feet. That’s slightly more than 2 feet square. We’re talking shoulder to shoulder, back to stomach, here. Packed like sardines. Without telephoto lens effects to help. Didn’t you mean 5 feet square? If so, divide your estimate by 4.

I ran the numbers similarly in my first go at crowd estimates. Kinda fun to do and surprised me. My instinct going in was to multiply the media’s number by the usual media fudge factor of 5. Turns out, Mocha did his homework.

Reading your post brought tears to my eyes. After all, the issue is not Republican or Democrat. It is like you so eloquently said…for whatever reason, we have a regime hell bent on the destruction of our way of life…these imposters have essentially hijacked the Democrat party. I am deeply moved by one who has seen through the smoke and mirrors to see the truth…the truth shall set you free!!! Thank you for a wonderful post.

To Nick_crumpet I have been reading the replys until my eyes are burning, waiting for someone to say exactly what you said in your comment!!!! Thank you so much for bringing it to everyone’s attention about how important it was and how much money was raised for a worthy cause!! It seems those people who are arguing about how many people were there lost all prespective as to what “Restoring Honor” means. How petty of them to be measuring the stadium in Michigan to compare with the reflecting pool and on and on ad nauseum…..How about all the wonderful guests and their messages and the fact that it was NOT political. All those religious leaders joining hands on stage?? That impressed me, not how much was the body count!! Or MLK’s own niece, standing tall and proud and had a wonderful message to give, not just to black people, but,… Read more »

As I stood there, feeling so lucky to be part of the event, I spoke with a number of folks like yourself who wished they were there as well. It woud’ve been cool if someone had given a shout out to all of you who could be there in spirit only (or maybe they did and I didn’t hear it). Anyway, we felt your presence… and that of the MILLIONS of our brethren who were watching or just wishing they were with us but couldn’t be. I have to admit being caught up in the # counting game myself. I suppose all of us who came were there, in part, to hear and BE heard – and yes – to be COUNTED. Indeed, it was the message and those who were honored that mattered most, but as one who was there to be seen and heard as “the people”, it… Read more »

Let’s see – The Official Estimate was 500,000+; Some of the Local liberals just can’t seem to believe that many people would attend a “Glen Beck Rally”, let alone a political function. I’ve seen a few “overheads”, and I tend to believe the old rules about “How Far the Crowd Goes” – This one goes beyond the the end of the Reflecting Pool, extending 60+ yards in one direction away from the pool and 30 yards away in the other… I seem to recall the capacity of Constantinople’s Hippodrome held somewhere around 100,000-150,000, Based on that, and on the observations and reports of the sizes of other crowds, I’d say somewhere around 225,000-250,000 people attended the Restoring Honor Rally. This is esp. impressive, when one considers that the “Counterdemonstation” attracted only 25,000-30,000 demonstrators, in spite of the fact that Union, State and Federal employees were “encouraged” to attend the “Counterdemonstration”.

Has anyone asked how many showed for the “I have a dream” march last year, or if there was on in the past 10 years?
They should thank Beck for stimulating attendance so that Sharpton could get people to show up to hear his vile racist remarks.

What does it matter to the libs how many people were there? Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Rahm Emanual could not get this many people together if they served a free lunch and advertised for a year. Wait they already do that, and just say vote for us and we will keep it coming.

Mocha is making no sense. Figures have been posted in these reply’s that show the mall to be over a mile long. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Mall#Dimensions He has been shown the truth and yet he comes up a figure that is totally outrageous. He is therefor asking for the garbage he is getting. This appears to be the tactic of the far left (out). Then they just try to ignore and marginalize anyone who comes against their ridiculous position. And then they cry racism or some other elitist brain dead plank. Were catching on and the rally should place the far out left on notice that the numbers are increasing who understand the far out left. People do not like to be marginalized. By taking the idiot position that is being presented here by the far left Mocha people who can think should realize that anyone in such a state is part of… Read more »

My understanding of the million man march was that it was no where near a million. How about posting a picture for a comparison. This should be good way to prove a point that politics play in estimates.

If This was a Liberal Democratic rally the press would say there were 5,000,000
a Republican get together 5,000; a Conservative get together 500; a Conservative Christian rally 50. And Obama, Reid and Pelosi got together and gave their estimate that there was just one person there Glen Beck, and one in the crowd, Sara Paling, and all the rest of the people there are counter demonstrators led by Charlie Rangel
