Tea Party protests

As my Sister and Mother in law went to the Tea Party protest in Minneapolis earlier this year, I've been trying to gauge the numbers involved in the movement, and how many people turned up at the Washington DC rally. All sorts of figures have been bandied about from the totally risible 300 through the more realistic 70,000+ people and the scarcely credible million plus to the almost unbelievable two million. Which version is closest to the truth? The original time lapse video below was 'removed due to rights violation" But I've replaced it with others so you can make up your own mind.

So I went picking through the coverage for aerial shots that would give a better idea and found this at moderate in the middle and Gateway pundit. Wow. That's a lot of pissed off people. As for being a 'mob'. Maybe they were, but weren't they tidy?

No wonder our regular summer American visitors are trying to stay here for the full six months they're allowed in Canada this year.
