Glenn Beck Rally
I'm not really sure what Glenn Beck wants in terms of substantive policy. But, this weekend he had his rally at the Lincoln Memorial. There are wildly different claims about how many people were there. My guess is it was about 100,000.
Here is a photo of the event. To be sure there were a lot of people. But we attended the concert/inauguration festivities on the Sunday before President Obama was inaugurated and I can tell you there were far more people. All of the space on the west side of the Washington Monument (the part that is sparsely populated in the Beck photos) was packed. There were probably 200,000 to 250,000 people at that concert.
Then for President Obama's Inauguration the number was way, way bigger. You can see the photo from the Capitol to the Washington Monument was packed. That space is twice as long as from the Lincoln Memorial to the Washington Monument, and it is wider because most of the space on the other side (the side Beck spoke on) is covered by the Reflecting Pool.
People who know DC understand what I am talking about.
