By some estimates, half a million people were in DC yesterday.  Half a million.  And the President of the United States chalks it up to “somebody like a Mr. Beck” stirring people up.

Amazing.

He seems to in reality be not the President of all of us… but the President of some of us.

2012 will not get here soon enough.
