St. Louis 9/12 Rally

The little woman and I went to the 9/12 rally at the Arch in St. Louis today, mostly to be faces in the crowd. I think it's important for people to see that they are not alone in opposing the collectivist, statist tyrants in control of our government right now.

There were the usual signs, flags, and banners and people in patriotic garb. A raucous band in wigs and revolutionary war era looking costumes, and lots of speakers.

Some of the more entertaining speakers included Emery McClendon (Fort Wayne, IN), Dr. Gina Loudon (a 'hottie' by Cyndi's standards), Dick Morris, David Limbaugh (yup, that David Limbaugh), Dana Loesch, Sammy Kershaw (some country singer from Louisiana, who is running for Lt. Governor of Louisiana), Michael Prell (author of Underdogma), and Andre Harper.

Kershaw played a concert after the speakers got done, and Cyndi got some Mardi Gras beads without the usual performance required to get them.

I would be remiss if I didn't make an unassailable crowd estimate. A few (like less than five) thousand. It was a nice day, though. There were a few Obamabots walking around, and you couldn't help but feel sorry for them.

I'll have to tell the wife about the Fort Wayne connection. And I'm in total agreement with Cyndi on Dr. Loudon. Matter of fact, I'm gonna go listen to her and if she has an Irish accent as I suspect she does, she will shoot even higher in the "hottie" list. She already got a major boost just from speaking at this rally.

The Obamabots have got to be getting tired... sheepish, and perhaps a little nervous about the glaring disparity between who they say we are, and what they actually see when they go to these things.

This is why we're winning.

Ok. No Irish accent. But hey.

She's still a hottie.

Incidentally, I'm seeing estimates in the MSM of 10,000 - 14,000.

Just FAI (For Anyone's Information)

Oh, and I note that The Sounding Fathers' frontman is Chris Loesch.
