Sharpton, Jackson, Farrakan?The people who attended the marches you cited were no more professional activists, or members of an organization, or 'cajoled' into attending than were yesterday's attendees.
Regular taxpayers are not on par with Jackson, Sharpton, Sheehan, Code Pink, Farrakan, etc. Sorry, the argument does not fly.It just happens to be that more people attended the marches you cited than attended Saturday's Tea Party. So, you are diminishing them by saying, they are not grassroots. It's simply not true.
