Sanity rally was spot-on

  1. The last time I went to a rally attended by 100,000 people was over 20 years ago and I still remember having to sleep in the bed of my pickup after walking forever to find it and only then realizing that I couldn’t go anywhere until the multitudes of parked cars began to move. Since then I’ve heard of nothing that would motivate me to repeat that experience. I’m glad that there are still people who haven’t had their fill of mass meetings and who even still enjoy them, but as long as I can watch their highlights on Pied Type, or YouTube – they aren’t for me anymore. So call me an old fuddy duddy. I can live with it.

    1. Notice I’ve updated the attendance figure. CBS News estimated the crowd at 215,000 and one Canadian news source put it at 250,000.

      I realized while watching the rally that I’d never have been able to stand there for 3 hours. Not to mention all the walking to get there and back from wherever. These days I probably couldn’t even manage all the walking and stair climbing at a college football game. I guess that makes me an old fuddy duddy too.

  2. I could never tolerate such a crowd either, but I watched some of the live stream from the web. Fuddy duddy me three!

    That this pair of The Media’s keenest observers comes from Comedy Central … is it irony? I don’t know. I do know that the folks in the cross-hairs of Stewart’s and Colbert’s comedy are often unable to get the jokes.

    The hyperbole spewing from Those Like Beck is sad and frightening. They only seem able to weep and gnash their teeth at how The Liberals Have Ruined Everything. This stance of blamestorming sucks the life out of any of real and good ideas coming from the right.

... and that's my two cents
