Glenn Beck Rally to Draw 300,000?

A short while ago, we had the Gathering of the Juggalos. Now, Glenn Beck. Organizers of the Fox News pundit’s “Restoring Honor” rally—taking place this Saturday in Washington D.C., in the same spot where Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his “Dream” speech, on the speech’s anniversary—say they’re expecting 300,000 attendees, according to permits issued by the National Park Service last week. The conservative rally is cleared to occur on the Washington National Mall area, from the Lincoln Memorial pool and steps to the Washington Monument. The permits are issued to the 9-12 Project, Mercury Radio Arts and Restoring Honor; Joseph Kerry, who co-authored the book Glenn Beck’s Common Sense, is listed on the permits as “person in charge.”
