I DUNNO, THE CROWDS LOOKED PRETTY BIG TO ME….You know, I’m actually in favor of deposing Saddam, but count me among the people wondering just why the warblogosphere is so shrilly insistent that this weekend’s war protests were (a) microscopically small, (b) intellectually vacant, (c) unapologetically Stalinist, and (d) objectively pro-terror.

Sure, more people went to football games than went to the protests. So what? Probably more people went to football games than went to Vietnam War protests too.

Methinks they doth protest the protests too much.
