Conservatives march on Washington

The nature of conservatism is to be . . . well, conservative.  We don’t throw paint on people.  We don’t burn figures in effigy.  We don’t bite off fingers.  We put our heads down and do our jobs.  So when two million conservatives (and independents) take the time, the energy and the money to converge on Washington, you know that a fire has been lit.  Just as the Obama administration has done the unbelievable and united the Israeli body politic, it has now done the equally unbelievable and created oxymoronic conservative activists.

I don’t have any insights to add, but I bet all of you do.  I’d love it if you would leave your thoughts about the march on Washington here.

(And suek, you’ll see that I’ve added a new “Open Thread” category for this one.)

    I think it is funny they are trying to game the turnout against the protest. Like getting Pennsylvania Avenue filled to the brim by people with kids’ birthday parties, yard work and just generally having a day off from the weekly toil isn’t impressive. And like Book mentioned, these are the extroverted, group activity conservatives and independents.

    Also, let us not forget that these are the people who could afford to travel to DC for a protest. How many more needed what little money the government has left them to pay the rent so they couldn’t splurge?

    Reader’s comment to WSJ article:

    By definition, Obama is spending all he can to make Bush look conservative.

    And I did not believe Bush was really a conservative until Obama took office.

    Reporters are choking on the reported numbers of demonstrators with headlines saying thousands to 10’s of thousands.

    I guess it’s tough to do a head count when some have them up their a#@!

    You asked for thoughts (no snark)

    I was feeling pride and a sense of some rejuvenation. I love the fact that people, regular folks, but their money where their mouths are. They came from all 50 states at their own expense and I think that speaks volumes about Americans. Moreover, I think of all who wanted to go and could not, for whatever reason. They will voice their opinion at the ballot box.

    There are more of us (voters) than them, our representatives. Obama cannot appoint 300,000,000 czars.
