JIM HOFT HAS more Washington coverage and reports that they’ve announced attendance between 300,000 and 500,000 — well beyond the expected 100k.

UPDATE: Liveblog coverage at The Daily Caller.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Park Service estimates crowd at over 300,000.

MORE: Reader Lisa Schell writes:

In other words, Glenn Beck’s rally drew more people than Keith Olbermann has viewers.

Heh. And reader Doug Sun emails:

IIRC, the crowd for the anti-Vietnam War rally in late 1968, the one that started at the Lincoln Memorial and was described by Normal Mailer in The Armies of the Night, was estimated at 100,000. So Glenn Beck plays the Lincoln Memorial and draws a crowd at least three times bigger than the big anti-Vietnam War rally held at the same venue?

Just sayin’, is all. :-)

He won’t get as much press attention, though. The times they are a-changin’.
