Here's the headline from Gateway Pundit:
It's On and IT'S MASSIVE--"Kill the Bill" Rally in DC!

CROWD UPDATE: 75,000 attend the rally today in Washington, D.C.

Whoo-hoo. GP has pictures, too. Scroll down and see my previous post if you didn't read my earlier post about this Washington, D.C. rally. Don't hold your breath that any of this will be reported by the lamestream media.

Here's my favorite sign

Michelle Malkin has an update. "Hey, Nancy, look out the window. You can see health care protesters from your House." Attendees report that crowd is shouting “Kill the bill!” and calling out Pelosi. [Sorry, she's hiding under her desk. And it's not easy for a 70-year-old to get under that thing!]

St. Louis Tea Party dudes have an update.

Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO): “We are one nation under God. It’s altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. And it drives the liberals nuts!” Missouri’s Akin led the Pledge of Allegiance at the protest on the steps.

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN): “It was Thomas Jefferson who said, ‘A little revolution now and then is a good thing.’”

Mark Levin: “They don’t know what they’re in for next November, do they?” Crowd chanting “Vote Them Out!”

If you use Twitter, you can follow them here: housecall on Twitter. If you don't use Twitter, it takes about 60 seconds to set up an account, which is all you need to follow this feed.

From Rep. John Carter (R., Texas): "Their offices are in those buildings. Go get 'em!" God, I love this country.

Bachmann is handing out the bill to the crowd. Take a page-take it to your Rep and tell them to explain it to you.

A cop just told someone in the crowd that he is "happy as hell to be working the crowd today."

Crowd to Pelosi: "Can you hear us NOW?"

Take note, Congress. A vote for the House bill is a career decision. It’s a suicide pact.

More updates at the Frugal Cafe.

For all of you that showed up in D.C. THANK YOU!!!! (from Arizona) [I've read about 50 "wish I could be there" messages].

Over 10,000 people have shown up so far to raise their concerns about the health care discussions currently under way. We are halfway in the middle of the crowd and can barely see podium with all the signs, people, and flags. These protesters are fired up.

In The Madness of Queen Nancy, the Wall Street Journal’s John Fund writes: “It reminds me of Major Nicholson, the obsessed British major in the film ‘Bridge on the River Kwai,’” one Democrat told me. “She is fixated on finishing her health care bridge even as she’s lost sight of where it’s going and what damage it could cause to her own troops.”

MAKE THE RALLY!! (thumbs up)
many thousands more who could not be
there physically, were with you in spirit!!

The AP is calling the numbers "tens of thousands."

NJ Rep. Leonard Lance, holding the bill: "Your voices are heard. I will be voting no."

Hearing all the entrances of the House buildings are jammed up

NE doors of Cannon locked, people turned away!

Comment from brilliant White House Press Sec'y spokesman, Bob Gibbs at today's White House press briefing: “Anybody that watches the rally is struck by the fact that there's a rally going on without a solution on their side.”

Another totally hilarious (at least in his own mind) joke from Bob Gibbs, reacting to John Voight as a featured speaker at the rally on the Capital steps: “I'm sure there's a Jon Voight joke in here somewhere, given he was one of the featured speakers, but…my father always told me my mouth would get me in trouble, and I have a feeling if I acted on the line that I'd like to give you, I'm almost positive that it would.”

So evidently Bob Gibbs, White House spokesman and standup comedian extraordinaire, thinks the "folks" who came to the rally in Washington today are something out of the movie Deliverance. Funny man, that Bob Gibbs. Considering that he's from Alabama, that seems like a strange thing for him to say.

More from Twitter:

Senator Bennett, thug who had constituents arrested, can B reached at 202-224-5852. [don't know if that's Colorado or Utah]

Congress: We can't FIX STUPID but we CAN VOTE YOU OUT

We wont leave this Hill until we kill this bill

Hearing all the entrances of the House buildings are jammed up [so how about letting people in? What do they not understand about "WE THE PEOPLE"?]
