A Small Gathering at the Capitol

“I think we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious.” –Thomas Jefferson

Sept. 12 march in DC

“None of the national evening news anchors were there to bring you breathless coverage. None of the networks suspended regular programming to show the event in real time. A number of the weekend shows were taped on Thursday or Friday and didn’t even mention it. The Washington, DC subway — called the Metro — which regularly puts on extra trains for large events announced it would actually close stations if they became too crowded. The Washington Times said, ‘Rally leaders estimated the crowd at about 75,000’ the Washington Post said it was ‘in the many tens of thousands.’ It is one thing for Democrats to have ridiculed the people who turned out to those town-hall meetings as isolated groups of extremists. It is something else to have ‘many tens of thousands’ of people show up on a Saturday afternoon on the West Front of the Capitol to express their dismay over how their government is being run. The issue for Republicans is simple. Conservatives have shown you the parade route. The question is: Who, if anyone, will be able to race to the front and lead it?” –political analyst Rich Galen
