WOW: The 8/28 conservative rally versus the 10/2 liberal rally. (via Warren Roche on Facebook)
I can't wait to hear the Ministry of Truthiness claim these rallies were more or less the same.
WELCOME: Thanks for dropping by The Wolf Files. Check things out while you're here. I'm President Obama's conservative cousin, the doctor opposed to ObamaCare. (I'll probably be placed at the kids' table on Thanksgiving.)
UPDATE RE: VALIDITY OF PHOTOS: Reader Jerry Howard writes:
Shots taken from the Washington Monument of Lincoln Memorial (i.e. looking exactly west) of the two rallies. Even though the upper (Beck) rally is under partly cloudy skies there is enough info to determine sun angle fairly closely. On the lower image angle is very clear. (fact that the memorial is exactly aligned and the face is in shadow, but the shadow on steps is right next to the base)
Anyway, I plugged the location and dates into my astronomy computer program and adjusted it to the sun angles and determined that the time of day of the two shots are within a very few minutes of 12:40 EDT for the 8/28 rally and 13:00 EDT for the 10/02 rally. [Program: TheSkyX - MAC OS]
So the comparison of the crowds for the two events is valid. (The left cannot argue that their rally was shot well beforehand or afterwards)
IMPORTANT: My Tea Party friends, all the rallies in the world won't matter if we conservatives don't wrestle control of our government away from the big spending D's & R's. Check out the citizen volunteer Election Day Tea Party to channel grassroots resources to where they're needed most. Here's the introductory video featuring yours truly.
