House Resolution Would Perpetuate “9/12 Project” Counting Errors

A House of Representatives resolution (H.R. 870), sponsored by Rep. Price (R-GA) and doomed to go no-where, would formalize Glenn Beck’s latter-day egregious miscounting of the tea party protesters’ infamous march on Washington. The resolution parrots the Glenn Beck of 9/13 by putting the number of protesters at “hundreds of thousands… as high as 1,700,000,” but ignores Glenn Beck’s actually accurate same-day estimate of 60,000. Awkward.

  1. That’s nice. Are they going to commemorate the large gay rights march in Washington on 11 October as well? (I’m guessing they won’t.)

  2. I believe they (Obama) did, by signing the Matthew Shephard bill :)
