If there’s one thing the Dumbest Man on the Internet is good at, it’s gloating: Doofus Charles Johnson Falls for Bogus Tea Party Rally Shot to Bash Conservatives | the Gateway Pundit
Poor Charles Johnson.
If he’s not trolling right-wing blogs or bashing conservatives he’s just not happy. Too bad for Chuck, he would be much more effective if he didn’t do such sloppy work. Take his latest post, for instance, where bashes the Tea Party for low turnout today in Washington DC.
Take a close look at the photo below.
The photo Charles posted is not from the Audit IRS Tea Party today in Washington. The picture he posted is from an immigration rally on the other side of the US Capitol today.
Here’s a shot from today’s Tea Party rally where between 10,000 and 15,000 turned out.
Once again, Charles Johnson is left looking like an idiot leftist.
Better luck next time, Chuck.
Why do wingnuts always sound like a badly-written Lex Luthor rant when they gloat?
Be that as it may, I do have a correction to make, because Jim Hoft is right. (This may be the first and only time I ever write that sentence.) Here’s the picture I posted originally:

This photo does not show the Tea Party rally; it is indeed a different rally.
So does that mean Jim Hoft is also correct that the turnout was “10,000 to 15,000?” (Notice that he’s now inflated it even beyond his original fantasy numbers.)
Of course not! Even when he’s right about something, the inestimably dim Jim Hoft turns it into a fail.
Hoft includes this photo of the rally, taken from a low angle, and claims it shows 15,000 people:
This is the same trick Hoft always tries to pull, and it really doesn’t fool anyone — but he does it every time.
Here’s another shot of the rally from The Daily Beast, showing the real size of the crowd:
Does that look like 15,000 people to you? The Associated Press caption for the photo:
Hundreds gathered on the grounds of the Capitol to protest. (J. Scott Applewhite/AP)
Yep, “hundreds” is more like it.
Jim Hoft really should post a correction too at this point, to revise his fantasy turnout numbers drastically downward, but we all know that’s just not how Hoft rolls.
