A Red, White and Blue Day on the Mall

Blogger is having coniptions tonight, so I'm posting little-by-little until I get it all in.

Kristinn Taylor of FreeRepublic did an outstanding job organizing and MCing a terrific rally on the Mall in Washington, DC today. It was so successful that CNN is already lying about it! Well, CNN may say there were "hundreds, not thousands" at the event, but by my estimate there were 20 to 30 hundred. Do the math.

A very dynamic, exhuberatant and busy lady is Melanie Morgan of Move America Forward. She is the force behind the "You Don't Speak for Me, Cindy" traveling caravan of Support. Melanie is also a heckova nice person.

Deborah Johns, founder of Northern California Marine Moms. Her son is a Marine serving in Iraq. Johns organized the caravan that began in San Francisco, Calif., on Aug. 22 and ended with a “We Support Our Troops and Their Mission” rally at the Crawford Community Center.
