Three SWAC bloggers went to Washington for the 9/12 Taxpayer Protest March ... we all rode the bus together up and back and walked in the march down Pennsylvania Avenue to the rally. It is always interesting to see the various perspectives from different eyes of an event. Here are the posts (so far) from SWAC bloggers Bob Kirchman and David Karaffa (keep checking back ... we are still posting photos and commentary):
- Bob Kirchman at The Journey blog not only took in the signs and flags of the 9/12 marchers but also the architecture of Washington's stately buildings along Pennsylvania Avenue in his post, "March up Pennsylvania Avenue ... Landmarks." Beautiful photography as seen through the eye of an artist. His crowd shots are seen in "March up Pennsylvania Avenue ... to the West Front of the Capitol," and then followed up with "Capitol Dome ... the Symbol of Representative Government" and "Faces of Freedom ... at the National Taxpayers' March 9/12/09"
- David Karaffa at the Augusta Conservative has March on Washington!!, photos of the myriad of rally signs. My favorite was the one that said, "Republicans ... This is a spine!" with a drawing of said spine.
- Yankee Phil couldn't be there but he has picked up the photos, the discrepancies on the number of marchers, and the mainstream media's inaccuracy in reporting the event.
- Fishersville Mike also wondered about the attendance numbers, and I laughed out loud about speed bumps with spikes and Mike's quest for a photo of the Boob Czar.
