Jon Stewart’s and Stephen Colbert’s Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear was held today in Washington, DC and estimates place the number of participants at as many as 6 million, more than double those who attended President Obama’s inauguration in January, 2009. The two rallies drew the record crowds as inspired participants from all over the country were bound and determined to put the Tea Partiers in their place as also-runs with their lame “whites-only” rallies held on April 15 every year. They also gathered for a few laughs. Here’s a photo of the record breaking crowd (photo by Moonheid):

UPDATE. UPDATE: Estimates now place the crowd at 8 million, and that, in fact, half of New York City’s population attended as well as all of Rhode Island!
