One Nation rally - Updated

I'm thinking attendance won't be as big as it might have been if Stewart and Colbert hadn't decided to hold their joint rally at the end of the month, but looking at the crowd shots, it appears they have a respectable turnout at the One Nation rally and certainly the crowd is more diverse than any Tea Party event I've seen.

You can see for yourself on The Nation livestream which started at 11:00 EST and is supposed to run all day. Just heard it crashed but I assume they'll fix it. In the alternate, CSPAN livestream started at noon. Not sure how long they plan to stay.

Update: If you're on twitter, OneNationTeam is livetweeting from the site. Just picked up this crowd shot. Looks like they got a very good turnout after all.

Interesting that the speakers at One Nation were predominantly distinguished citizens who'd made real contributions to the country.

It was light years more relevant than the TP public tantrum. Couldn't fail to notice that the MSM coverage I saw posted a lot of photos from before the mall filled up, while in contrast they posted tight crowd shots of the TP rally and avoided the empty spaces.

But at least they covered it to some extent. They really had no choice after covering every TP gathering of three or more "patriots." In a way we have the TP to thank that they covered the lefty rally at all.
