Open Thread

The Limbaugh-Beck acolytes got their day in the sun on Saturday and the estimates are that between 60-70 thousand people showed up to be part of the anti-Obama, anti-health-care rally. This crowd was wowed by Sen Jim DeMint who states that healthcare is not a right, but only a privilege. If you are rich enough, or lucky, you have the privilege of having health care.

Saturday was Glenn Beck’s rally and there were a lot of reporters and lots of news cycles captured to follow the outrageous remarks of too many of the protesters.

Sunday, events are planned for all over the country that should easily out rival the numbers from Beck’s rally. What is the likelyhood that tomorrow’s rallys will be covered with half of the outlets even if it is 20 times bigger?
