Reported on the newspaper's 12:06 update to their story about the Glenn Beck rally:

On the Mall, an overwhelmingly white crowd of tens of thousands stood quietly during an opening prayer, the silence broken only by an occasional "amen." The dense assembly , which contained few young people, stretched from the Lincoln Memorial, past the reflecting pool, to the World War II Memorial and spilled onto the grounds of the Washington Monument.

The crowd, consisting of many from the Midwest and the South, was not visibly angry. Rather, they said they had come to express their fear that the country was at a perilous moment.

The Post reporters were obviously surprised the crowd wasn't angry.

Dunn initially juxtaposes the two to make it a joke. "Not often coupled with each other," she says, to a few laughs. Dave Weigel thinks the whole thing's a joke that everyone but Glenn Beck gets.
