I don't think I've ever seen so many people together here in DC. I have to admit ... this was absolutely awesome.
And I go way back ... back to the old Vietnam protests. I've seen a lot of people milling about the streets, I can assure you ... but I've never seen anything like this.
I wish I could give you a feel for the leviathan that beached here in DC today.
Suffice to say, I suppose, that the image below is a side street.
Sure Sure, there were pockets of insanity ... what would DC be without pockets of insanity?
We had a strong military presence throughout the city (which is unusual) and that was kinda cool.

But there were a LOT of people. A LOT.
This was in front of DAR Constitution Hall (more on that with the video to come).
OK, there's at least one in every crowd...
... hawking his or their usual idiotic, Jew-hating messages under the thin guise of "open-minded" thinking. It's just part of the landscape nowadays. Sheesh.
This is new(ish), though. The shape of things to come, if I'm not mistaken. Hope and Change can mean many many things to many many people.
Case in point.
Ya know ... I'm gonna kinda miss this ... He's a Dallas fan, of course. I say that as a native Washingtonian and Redskins fan. To a Washingtonian, this makes perfect sense.
I like this photo ...
I have no idea what to say about this ...
THIS, however, speaks for itself. Loudly.
As does this.
PETA was out in force.
Here we have some random shots taken during the remainder of the day. I must have walked 10 or 15 miles back and forth. Please enjoy.
... during the acceptance speech ... a typical reaction. OK ... I actually liked a lot of his speech, but I mean really ... ugh.
... he had a dog ...
