President of FreedomWorks just announced that ABC is Reporting Tea Party Crowd is 1.5 Million

:wtf:


"Highways are closed and crowd is streaming all the way back to the monument."

He's having people text in to "prove" their attendance to "verify" the numbers.

I read somewhere that 1.8 to 2.0 million people attended Obama's inauguration. DC was scrambling to deal with the crowd, and they were worried about having enough potties to handle the crowds.

This is not 1.5 million.
