Green Eagle presents the following entirely scientific calculation of the size of yesterday's Fox News/Michelle Bachman Grand Teabag Tantrum:
Sean Hannity reports that there were 20,000 in attendance.
Now, as you may remember, at the last Washington Teabag Tantrum and 9/11 Political Exploitation Faire, 70,000 attendees were reported by the likes of Hannity to have been 2 million. Thus, the actual attendees amounted to 3.5% of claimed attendees. Using this known fact as a standard, we can now, through a simple feat of multiplication, calculate the actual attendance at yesterday's event, using the formula: H times 0.035 = R; where H represents Hannity's lying claims, and R represents the actual attendance.
We thus arrive at the likely real size of the great National Demonstration against Healthcare: 700.
And Green Eagle is sticking by that number, suckers. So deal with it.
Now, if you happen to have missed this grand event, sponsored by Congressional Republicans, here is a photo of a large banner displayed front and center, where nobody could miss it:
Tasty, huh? Giving people health care is just like Nazi death camps. I have yet to hear a single Congressional Republican, a number of whom attended this rally, speak out against this loathsome banner. Of course, let Obama utter any criticism of Fox News, and the right wing howling commences. These people are not the kind of political opposition that any of us have seen in this country in our lifetimes. and at some point we are going to have to figure out how to deal with them.
