Power Line comments on the “One Nation Working Together” rally in Washington:
1) Four hundred organizations, including all the major labor unions, the NAACP, the Sierra Club, Code Pink, the Green Party, the Communist Party, Planned Parenthood and hundreds more were not able to turn out as many people as Glenn Beck.
2) One of the stated purposes of the gathering was to protest against lack of civility in public discourse. The program was opened by Ed Schultz.
Item 2 is good for a laugh and a cry. No one in public discourse, not even Keith Olberman, is less civil than Ed Schultz. If you don’t know him you must watch one full program of his on MSNBC, 6pm EST. Force yourself. You must know your adversaries. You cannot speak about a man with authority if you have not observed him for yourself.
What is striking about Power Line’s item 1 is the motley crowd of supporters. Have you ever been embarrassed to know Michael Savage is on your side? It beats knowing that your agenda coincides with that of Code Pink and the Communist Party.
