Whatever the actual number here at the Beck rally, it is MASSIVE. In light of that, it's surprising that the media presence is relatively sparse.

This rally is different from a Tea Party. There aren't too many signs, and so far no "crazy" signs that the Left would want to seize upon. It seems like EVERYONE has an American flag. A few yellow Gadsden flags dotted around the crowd as well.

Sarah Palin has just taken the stage to thunderous applause.
