Changing the tone

Organizers expect as many as 750,000 activists in town this weekend for a huge women's rights rally. Randall Terry, semi-famous head of an anti-abortion group, provided a thoughtful retort to those who might be impressed by such a large demonstration:
I think their numbers are going to be way smaller than they projected, which is why they're reaching out to the communists, the homosexuals and turning this into a hate Bush march,' he said. 'So what if they have a big crowd? Adolf Hitler had big crowds in the '30s. . . . They are marching to support murder.
Terry says he'll have just 1,500 counter-demonstrators on hand ... maybe he should have reached out to the communists too.
