Comedy Central and Jon Stewart: "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear": crowds!
The music was rather like that on Sirius Radio, but the real show was the placards in the crowd. Don’t be afraid of overeducated people. Don’t be afraid of rationality. Real problems require real solutions.
You can visit the "Sarah Palin Watchdog" blog mentioned on the demonstrator's poster here.
Technically, this was a “performance” or a “concert” rather than a rally, so it went on this blog.
CC’s website for the event is here. The word on the street is that the crowd was about 400000. It was som much larger than expected, and the concert promoters did not have permits to put up speakers and jumbotrons everywhere.
