    I don't. I care about the message.

    It wasn't particularly memorable or historical.

    Return to God.

    Support the Troops.

    Whoopdee****ing doo never heard that one before.

    Not a bad message don't get me wrong. Just not particularly new.

    Yep Glenn, in every way you "reclaimed the civil rights movement"
    Agreed. I feel terrible for all those people who drove through the night to be there. Maybe they won't say it out loud, but I bet a lot of them were wishing they stayed home. I feel worse for the kids that were dragged through 2 states.

    Worst of all, the regular end of the summer tourists who just wanted to see DC. Must have been hell trying to ride the metro. Good luck getting in the Smithsonian later in the day after the crowd broke up. You dump 87,000 people into the center of the city, good luck trying to get around.

    Wasn't Beck complaining earlier in the summer about not getting his permit for the event? I would call him an appropriate name, but then I'd be accused of being hateful or intolerant. Someone who misleads his audience into believing an event was going to be important and meaningful, gets them to spend their time and money to be there... Then only comes up with a vague, somewhat bland message -- one that is very contrary to his stance on the Islamic Cultural Center. I see people being taken advantage of, being mislead by a TV personality... It's disturbing.

    Well I wouldn't say that.

    My problem is this: I don't think Mr. King spent weeks before that Rally claiming, Oh this will be historic this, and historic that. If I'm correct in my knowledge of history, I'm not sure if he even planned to make the I have a dream speech that day, he had done it at functions before.

    It really was a powerful, powerful speech. One that has been burned into the worlds memory forever... because people were truly in trouble, folks were being lynched and beaten and discriminated against.

    And for Beck to, in the remotest terms compare his rally to that, is kind of retarded.

    But he didn't really say anything inflammatory, there was no taking a shot at others that I saw.

    But I feel alot of it is disengenious that's all.

    Agreed.

    And I can only hope that his fans who made the trip across several states only to hear a simpleminded 'feel-good' message -- hopefully they're starting to see through him.

    No -- I'm actually waiting for you to refute the CBS expert estimate with something more than: "I looked at these photos and..."

    If you got something, let's hear it.

    Considering that the size of the crowd does not make his words any more or less true, I think this is something stupid to fight over.
