Restoring America…

I didn’t attend Glenn Beck’s rally on Saturday,  but I know some of the people who did.   Whatever you think of Beck,  you have to applaud the funds which will go to the Special Operations  Warrior Foundation.   A conservative blogger who warned about unsafe areas of D.C.  created a firestorm.    Having lived in D.C. for a couple of years myself,   I think it was a public service.    No matter whose head count/guesstimate/estimate you use,  media bias clearly exists.   Plenty of it was  on display before the event.

Al Sharpton’s march,  titled as a  counter-rally,  didn’t have the numbers,  and most shots show a sour man bellowing at the crowd of  activists and union goons,   not the  smiling faces at the Beck event hearing messages of faith,  hope,  and charity.

PowerLine was  in attendance at the Mall.  Don’t bother reading Frank Rich’s piece;   just read Timothy Carney’s  critique of it.   Then read what  one black attendee  at the Mall had to say, which is the exact opposite of the hysterical reaction of liberals  such as Mary Mitchell  and Bob Herbert.   Let’s hope none of  them read this in the Christian science Monitor.

His Oneness,  of course,  paid  no attention to the rally,  being so far above the fray.   Hear from  some who  attended.   I think Beck  just proved that  nobody owns August 26th.
