Today was the Rolling Thunder ride and rally in Washington DC, which was also the first stop on Sarah Palin's "One Nation" Bus Tour.
This photo above isn't mine, I found it via a link from FreeRepublic.com. Unfortunately, I was unable to find her, or her tour bus, which was reported days ago to have been permited at Henry Bacon Dr., near the Lincoln Memorial.
Of the three plus years I've lived in the DC area, this was the first Rolling Thunder event I've attended and, well, what can I say. You'll never see this many motorcyles and veterans gathered in one area. Not just one parking lot...
But this one and a couple others were full at the Pentagon.
I found this reporter with a knavish, English accent (not sure who he was with) asking questions about Sarah Palin, fishing for Palin haters. He got one from this guy, who was also saying negative things about the Tea Party.
I'll let the rest of the photos and video speak for themselves.
A posting on Twitter from Christine Delargy of See BS reads:
Not there but @CBSNews producer on ground tells me #RollingThunder crowd pretty anti-media, very protective of @SarahPalinUSA.Palin is headed next to Gettysburg, and then to Philadelphia.
