I was down at the Gathering of Eagles rally this morning on the mall. I filmed a bit, though this is pre-moonbat confrontations, so it's pretty tame.

But the speakers--particularly a WWII vet whose name is not on the line-up, so I'll have to track it down-- were moving, the crowd impressive, and the display of about 10,000 American flags far more beautiful than the rag-tag papier-mache army of the Left nearby.

Cindy Sheehan was, of course, on hand and, of course, profane. But I liked this quote:

"We're here in the shadow of the war machine," said anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan.

"It's like being in the shadow of the Death Star."
Michelle Malkin has plenty of pictures.
