I wish I was in D.C.
Coverage on CSPAN (noon to 4, CST) and Fox (noon -2)
Organizers were hoping for 20,000 to 200,000. AP and the NYT are saying “thousands” (H/T American Thinker). Capitol Police estimate 1.2 MILLION. ABC says 2 million, FWIW. ABC is probably using inflated estimates “leaked” by Pelosi & friends. ABC says they never gave that figure. 1 million is sounding plausible, say Vodkapundit. UPDATED: Via Vodkapundit, 2 MILLION might not be far-fetched after all.
Keep in mind, this is just D.C. Tea Parties are happening in cities across the country: Dallas, Quincy, Illinois, New York, San Francisco… At least 61 scheduled events around the country. Other groups taking it on the road, and heading to D.C. (listed at FreedomWorks).
