Some sanity is left

As it did for the Glenn Beck rally in late August, CBS News hired a company called AirPhotosLive to do a fly-over estimate on Saturday of the crowd at the Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert "Restore Sanity and/or Fear" rally on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

The magic number? 215,000.

That's about 2-1/2 times the size of the Beck crowd, estimated by AirPhotosLive at 87,000.

Maybe America hasn't swung quite as far to the right as all the screechy conservative pundits would like us to believe.
