Without the discalimer fine-print at the bottom, that would have been my sign.

It does say "usually" so, I think, either way you'd be covered.

No. You see, usually means >50%.

Nevermind that they were quoting CBS, who used the same firm to estimate both this weekend and the Beck rally via areal photography. CBS, as it happens, is the same source that Fox News used in this article:

I honestly couldn't care less who'd dick is bigger.. Stewart's or Beck's.

Look: Here's a nice little article from someone (I'd assume a right-leaner, since it's pajamas media) on the Beck crowd: http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/glenn-beck ... the-crowd/
followed up by a shorter adjustment:
http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/you-can-se ... -monument/
Seems as scientific and legit as anything else out there. I don't know.

None of that matters, of course. Tomorrow's crowd's will be the only ones which count. I hope you voted early and often! The libs need you! ;)

(I just hope you-know-who who's lurking this site right now doesn't decide to chime in)

Actually, what they should do is just take the normal subway ridership, take the total ridership on those days, subtract, and divide by 2. That would give as good an estimate as ever. And in the end... WHO CARES????

I don't care about who had more people show up. I care about bullshit being set forth as fact by the media to try and sell some point. That's the sort of thing that really annoys me. And I have zero problem with opinion.

Meh... can we get back to talking about masturbation?

Fuck 'em. They screwed the pooch when they didn't change the senate rules to force Republicans to ACTUALLY filibuster. Obviously shit still needs to get worse before people will actually accept that the current way needs to be trashed, so let it burn as far as I'm concerned.
