John notes that the Washington Post seems to be downplaying the McCain-Palin rally in its backyard. But the bigger crime may be how the Washington Post article on the rally was written. Let's just do a by numbers comparison:What more is there to say, really?
Number of paragraphs in the Washington Post story: 14
Number of paragraphs about pro-Obama protesters: 8
Number of McCain-Palin supporters present: 23,000
Number of Obama protesters: about 30
You do the math.
