Here are some photos sent to me by a friend who attended the Washington DC Tea Party. The photos were actually taken by another individual who claims that instead of the "tens of thousands" described by the press, there must have been a couple of million there-with another million or so unable to get into the city due to jammed traffic. Of course, that is the testimony of one person-take it for what it's worth. Keep in mind, tens of thousands represents a sold-out baseball or football game. The photos you see below were taken in different parts of Washington.
University of Michigan Stadium-capacity 106,000
Isn't it more likely that the DC crowd was in the hundreds of thousands-or more? And if so, why did the media downplay the numbers?
Here's one I added off the Internet taken from the intersection of 14th and E St.
Tens of thousands?
