So the Left has been out in force demonstrating against the war in Iraq as it hits the three-year mark. Tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of people rallied in the nation’s capital. Similarly-sized demonstrations happened in New York, Los Angeles, and across the U.S.
Eh, who am I kidding. These planned demonstrations were a big fat dud. The second picture at Michelle Malkin’s site shows a few dozen people at the Pentagon. Whoopee. A demonstration in Washington D.C. drew a whopping 166 people. On the radio, I heard a man ramble excitedly about the high turnout of teenagers at the local demonstration. What was he so excited about? At one demonstration, there were two teens out of six people. At the afternoon rally, five of the eighteen people who showed up were teens. My, Grandpa, what big numbers you don’t have.
Gateway Pundit has done a great job of tallying up the lackluster response around the globe.
Zombie has a photo shoot of the Global Day of Action rally in San Francisco held on March 18, 2006. From her vantage point, it appears the Saturday rally had more action than today’s. But even with the larger numbers on the weekend, the overall groups were much smaller this year. Perhaps the numbers are lower because the Left heard that Susan Sarandon is going to portray Cindy Sheehan in an upcoming movie, so they stayed home to watch Entertainment Tonight and E!
There are better ways to get your message across, but for liberals every war is Vietnam and every political scandal is Watergate all over again. And so they get to relive their youth and recall past glories by going through the same silly marches.
Please. That’s so 20th century.
