They Came, They Saw, They Went Home Again

Larry Klayman’s Reclaim America Coalition, which converged in a park across from the White House yesterday to begin a “second American Revolution,” didn’t succeed in getting the “tyrant evil fool” President Obama to “come out with his hands up” and agree to “leave town,” as he had promised.

Not even Klayman’s call for U.S. Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio), “the half-sober House speaker,” to return “to his tanning salon in Georgetown” was heeded.

But, drawn by a roster of almost 25 leading luminaries of the far, and sometimes completely nuts, right, the event did draw about 100 people, according to reporters who were there. Some people with the kinds of ideas that Klayman espouses might have been pleased with that turnout, but an optimistic Klayman had promised that at least 2 million would attend. That’s 20,000 times the number that actually did.
