This just makes me chuckle.
On top of displaying a lack of understanding of civics, taxes or even manners, tuns out Conservatives can’t count either.
After the 9/12 march on Washington, conservatives falsely claimed that over a million people attended, when in reality the closest thing to an official count — numbers given by the Washington DC Fire Department to ABCNews.com — placed the crowd at “approximately 60,000 to 70,000 people.” Though today’s anti-health care reform rally has been much more sparsely attended, that hasn’t stopped conservatives from inflating the numbers again. On G. Gordon Liddy’s radio show today, producer Franklin Raff, who was on the ground at the rally, told guest host Joseph Farah that the crowd is “just as big or bigger than” the 9/12 rally, which Raff estimated “at about a million.”
Capitol Hill police told NBC’s Luke Russert that the crowd was about 4,000.

In one of those rare moments of seemingly divine providence which almost seem like a bit of justice in response to an outlandish statement, Rep. Todd Akin messes up the Pledge of Allegiance after making the absurd claim that doing so “drives liberals crazy.”
Rep. Akins led the Pledge during
terrorist Representative Michelle “wait til you see how crazy I am tomorrow” Bachmann’s “scare your congressperson into voting against you” march on Capitol Hill this Thursday.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
At the march, thousands of confused Americans showed up to fight against their own best interests at the behest of a few congresspeople doing their best to keep Insurance lobbyists happy.
