Today Dimocrats and PINOs are in full nutjob at a Washington rally in support of the flim-flam man from Chicago – Barack Obama. The PINOs and Dimocrats have been busy lately raising money for a Blue Dog Democrat from South Carolina and preparing today’s massive rally. [We won’t kill their buzz by focusing today on the latest Chicago suicide nor reminding them of an earlier Chicago suicide.]
Before we discuss the dueling rallies (many rallies were held yesterday to Boo Obama Lustily) let’s look at the dueling fund raising.
Dimocrats have been whining and moaning lately about Blue Dog Democrats. Instead of placing the responsibility on Barack Obama, for the disaster which is the health care insurance company rescue scam and the deals Obama has made with the pharmaceutical companies, Dimocrats avert their vision and their few morals in order to blame Blue Dog Democrats. Immediately though, these dumb-ass (is there another word for such stupidity?) Dimocrats cheer and fist-bump themselves because they have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars – for a Blue Dog Democrat! These are truly stupid people.
For all the Dimocratic cheering (against their own “progressive” agenda) of their prodigious fund raising for said Blue Dog, the Republicans raised more money, without the drama, for Obama booing Representative Joe Wilson. Politico has the tragic-comedy numbers as of yesterday:
A source on Rep. Joe Wilson’s campaign says his fundraising has broken $1 million — and surpassed that of his Democratic rival, Rob Miller — since his outburst of “You lie!” during President Obama’s address to Congress Wednesday.
The source said Wilson’s current tally is $1,005,021 from 18,859 donations amid a high-profile campaign on the Drudge Report and elsewhere telling conservatives that Wilson is “under attack” for his willingness to take on Obama.
Wilson, who initially apologized for his words, is now riding a reaction that has surpassed the liberal backlash to his words: Miller has raised less than $900,000, according to the Democratic fundraising site ActBlue — though still more than enough to envigorate his challenge.
Joe Wilson won reelection in 2008 in a very tough year for Republicans so it was always doubtful that he was ever in any trouble in his 2010 reelection bid in what most finally concede will be a Republican victory year. Still, Dimocrats and websites with little grey matter deluded their readers into thinking that the Blue Dog opposition to Wilson ever had a chance of winning the South Carolina seat. Dimocrats and the allied dim websites fleeced the flock, for a Blue Dog, once again using a fake poll and bad poll interpretative skills.

Dimocrats rally in Washington and other cities today. They mean to show massive support for Barack Obama and his myriad scams.
The orange sulfur website helped organize the massive Dimocrat bag of nuts rallies nationwide. Yesterday the DailyKooks were upset at the grassroots turnout to lustily boo Obama. One of the acorns at the nut site suggested mass murder of Obama opponents:
Can someon perhaps tip over a 55 gallon drum of Sarin right in the middle of this collection of nutjobs….it would raise the aggregate IQ of the country by a good 12 points.
The murderous strategy is probably the only sane way for DailyKooks, Dimocrats, and assorted PINOs to deal with the reality they face. Their Mess-iah has grown limp, flaccid, and numbskullish and instead of decades of Dimocratic rule the likelihood of a Republican resurgence is nigh.
The massive Dimocrat, PINO, DailyKooks rallies have been publicized on many websites. Here’s one:
Americans United for Health Care and Insurance Reform
September 13, 2009, 12Noon – 5pm
Upper Senate Park / Constitution Ave and Delaware Avenue NE
The location has changed from a march from the Lincoln Memorial to the Capitol to a rally at the Upper Senate Park.
All buses must be routed through Union Station. There will be no bus parking at the Upper Senate Park.
The Upper Senate Park permit will be issued to Julie Paulsen and Americans United for Health Care and Insurance Reform. Those rallying from other groups, not associated to Americans United for Health Care and Insurance Reform, may be asked to leave. The Upper Senate Park must be thoroughly cleaned up after the rally. All trash is to be disposed of in proper receptacles.
This rally is to be peaceful not a demonstration. Singing, chanting, speeches, stories of health care difficulties and peaceful participation is expected. Obstructive yelling, screaming, fighting or name calling is not acceptable. If we are approached by GOP, right-wing, 9/12 demonstrators the rule of thumb is to ignore them. We are not to acknowledge their presence. If that goal cannot be obtained you may have officials remove them. This is our rally for health care reform.
If approached by the media our response should be similar, if not identical, to White House health care insurance reform verbiage. If asked about GOP, right-wing myths on health care reform persons should be directed to White House.gov.
These acorn nuts will rally in massive numbers in other cities too. We will update this article with the pictures of massive crowds as soon as they materialize.
Here’s another website organizing the massive rally in support of the Chicago flim-flam man and friend to pharmaceutical and insurance companies – Barack Obama:
We will be marching on September 13th @ 12:00 PM in every city across the country for affordable healthcare. We demand a public option. Let the president and congress know that we will not accept a watered down bill. Click on events to see locations that are confirmed for the march. We will need help to organize all of these rallies. Please fill out your information in the contact us section if you can help.

That towering figure on the Dimocratic Left, Robert Reich, is helping organize the massive rallies today:
Robert Reich has called for a ‘march on Washington’ in support of the public option on September 13th. This will be the day after the tea-baggers plan to astroturf the capital.
We need all who support the public option to get behind a nationwide rally to support it on September 13th, to show how much stronger our support is than the teabaggers. While the central element will be a march on Washington, we need similar demonstrations in cities across the country. Reich’s proposed timing couldn’t be any better – the weekend after Congress reconvenes, the day after the teabaggers rally, and two days before Baucus’ imposed deadline.
If two million people can go to Washington to celebrate Obama’s victory in the middle of winter, surely we can get a huge crowd out for what is the biggest healthcare fight of our generation.
That DailyKook is right on the issue of support. The massive rallies today are meant to show “how much stronger our support is than the teabaggers.” Once the photographs of today’s massive rallies materialize we will be able to compare whose support is greater. Here at Big Pink we will do a comparison test, just like they do for soft drinks and coffee on TV.

At many Democratic sponsored demonstrations we have attended there were many issues presented we did not necessarily agree with. We particularly remember attending the anti-Republican demonstrations at the Republican convention in New York City. The main organizer was supposed to be a communist organization and there was much controversy at the time as to whether mainline Democrats should attend the demonstrations. The “communist” or “socialist” organizations had the permits required so the decision was finally made to participate in the demonstrations with the caveat that we did not all have to agree on all the issues to march together in opposition to Republicans. [For information on those controversies and the “Unity Statement” regarding the dubious history of A.N.S.W.E.R. and “United For Peace And Justice” click HERE.]
With that Democratic demonstration history in mind, we were amused at the clucking on the Dimocratic Left, DailyKooks, and PINOs over yesterday’s truly massive demonstrations to lustily boo Obama.
The New York Times had a suprisingly somewhat accurate article on the demonstration in Washington:
A sea of protesters filled the west lawn of the Capitol and spilled onto the National Mall on Saturday in the largest rally against President Obama since he took office, a culmination of a summer-long season of protests that began with an opposition to health care and grew into a broader dissatisfaction with government.
On a cloudy and cool day, the demonstrators came from all corners of the country, waving American flags and handwritten signs explaining the root of their frustrations. Their anger stretched well beyond the health care legislation moving through Congress, with shouts of support for gun rights, lower taxes and a smaller government.
But as they sang verse after verse of patriotic hymns like “God Bless America,” sharp words of profane and political criticism were aimed at Mr. Obama and Congress.[snip]
The crowd numbered well into the tens of thousands, though police declined to provide an estimate of the size of the crowd. Many of the participants simply came on their own and were not part of an organization or group. But the size of the rally took the authorities by surprise, with throngs of people streaming from the White House to Capitol Hill for more than three hours.[snip]
Republican officials said privately that they were pleased by the turnout of the crowd, but also wary of the anger directed at politicians of all stripes.
Protesters came by bus, car and airplane, arriving here from Texas and Tennessee, New Mexico and New Hampshire, Ohio and Oregon. The messages on their signs told of an intense distrust of the government, which several people said began long before Mr. Obama took office.[snip]
While there was no shortage of vitriol among protesters, there was also an air of festivity. A band of protesters in colonial gear wound through the crowd, led by a bell-ringer in a tricorn hat calling for revolution. A folk singer belting out a protest ballad on a guitar brought cheers from listeners.
In conversations with demonstrators, people identified themselves as Republicans, Libertarians, independents and former Democrats. [snip]
“It’s more than Obama — this isn’t a Republican or a Democratic issue,” Ms. Lobbs said as she held a yellow flag that declared “Don’t Tread on Me.”
Dim websites, Dimocrats, DailyKooks, and PINOs tried to delude their audiences by concocting laughable conspiracies about small crowds and faked pictures. But the massive numbers could not be denied by those who are reality based.
There were a lot of people lustily booing Obama yesterday and lots of issues (just like at Democratic rallies)(via BP):
The DailyMail estimated the crowd at 2 million.
Dimocrat Bill Maher, displaying the typical political skills and of PINOs, Dimocrats and DailyKooks declared it The Million Moron March. Those “Million Morons” are the ones who stayed home on election day 2008 but will vote in November 2010. Stay charming Maher, you’re sure to help the “Morons” turn out even more on election day.
Time Magazine published a photo essay.
Whatever the number yesterday, 1 million, 2 million, tens of thousands, there were a lot of people and only Dim websites and Dimocrats, PINOs, and DailyKooks will deny that reality.
Even hoity-toity Republicans and conservatives were surprised and now know this is a genuine grassroots movement:
As a journalist who wears his cynicism like a badge of honor, to say that today’s tea party protest wildly exceeded my expectations would be an understatement. I’ve yet to see a reliable estimate of the crowd size and the cops seemed bound and determined to keep any photographers away from any high vantage points, but I’d be shocked if it wasn’t well into six figures. I’ve heard crowd-size estimates ranging from 350,000 to 1.5 million — the latter seems overly optimistic, but even the former figure would still be incredibly impressive. The march wasn’t supposed to begin until eleven, but this was the scene at Freedom Plaza when we arrived at ten: [pictures omitted, HERE]
So many people showed up they couldn’t contain everybody in the plaza, so they just started the march early to make room. As for the composition of the crowd, well I personally spoke to people from Ohio, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Idaho, Alaska, Delaware, Tennessee, Nevada, California, Montana, as well as Virginia and Maryland, natch. (And I’m probably forgetting a few.) What also bears noting is that a lot of people came by bus — and of the people that came to the march by bus, alomst all came on privately chartered buses organized by someone they knew. I asked one guy, who came up from South Carolina with 160 people on three buses, who put his trip together. He laughed and said, “My neighbor.” Can we drive a stake through the astroturf claim now?
Another interesting detail about the march — it was filled with immigrants. I’m pretty sure every Cuban in a thousand mile radius was there, helpfully explaining to everyone who would listen that Cuba’s vaunted free health care system involves shoddily trained doctors and bringing your own linen to the hospital. [snip]
But perhaps the most interesting thing about the crowd was how friendly and civil it was.[snip]
These people have jobs, are infuential [sic] in their communities and you can be darn sure they plan on voting next November.
Yesterday there was a massive demonstration in Washington. Today there is a Dimocratic demonstration in Washington. When we get the video of today’s demonstrations we can all compare and contrast.
Who has the momentum? Who has the mojo? It sure is not the Hopium addled.
