Oh dear. This is embarrassing.
MSNBC host Ed Schultz, on August 31st, 2010 (commenting on the turnout for Glenn Beck's "Restoring Honor" rally):
I could get every union head in this country, I could organize every progressive group in this country, the main bloggers. This could be The Ed March. Folks, 300,000 people on the heels of six months' promotion, that ain't no big shakes!
I bet I could do that! I bet I could do that with this radio show and my TV show and six' months' production, six months' promotion, if I had the budget I could equal that march. I know I could! I know I could!
I know that I could get Leo Gerard, I could get the Service Employees International Union, I could get AFSCME, I could get all these - I guarantee you, I could do more than 300,000! It ain't a big deal!
And now, the pictures that are just, well, judge for yourself.
Ed's "One Nation" rally:
Glenn's "Restoring Honor" rally:
Ain't a big deal. I'm sure it's just because Ed didn't have six months to prepare.
