    Not too bad, 200,000 people are reported at today’s “March for America” in support of comprehensive immigration reform. In comparison, the Washington, DC Fire Department estimated 60,000-70,000 people attended Glenn Beck’s “9/12” March last year.  In other words, it appears that 3 times as many people marched for comprehensive immigration reform today than for…well, whatever it was Glenn Beck told them to march for (actually, against) last year.

    UPDATE: According to Change.org, “it’s just been reported that local Fox News is counting immigration reform supporters in the national mall at half a million!”

    • …and will be having a write up tomorrow. I think the major thing to note is that this crowd was very proud of American and had a positive message that focused on what’s good about America. This is in sharp contrast to the Tea Party folks who were screaming a slur about sexual orientation and the n-word at members of Congress yesterday because they didn’t have anything else to say supporting their cause.
