Weird, Michelle Malkin forgot to include a link for her claim there are 2 million protesters in Washington, D.C today

It's like Malkin just totally forgot, y'know:

12:34pm Eastern: Police estimate 1.2 million in attendance. ABC News reporting crowd at 2 million.

Teeny, tiny fringe, huh?

Yep, Malkin claims ABC is reporting 2 million, but Malkin can't find the link to the ABC report. Funny, neither can anybody else. What I did find at was an AP report which claimed "tens of thousands" of protesters are marching today. I don't know, in the right-wing blogosphere does "tens of thousands" now translate into "2 million"?

Also, love Malkin's unsubstantiated claim that D.C. police estimated the crowd at 1.2 million. Again, no link or specific sourcing. It's weird, it's almost like Malkin is trying to deceive people. (Psst, I heard from a-friend-of-a-friend-of-a-friend that ABC News is reporting crowd at 9 million. Think Malkin will post it?)

UPDATED: if you poke around the GOP sections of the Internet you'll discover that that nifty 1.2 million number is "unconfirmed." Shocking, I know.

UPDATED: ABC News confirms it never reported the 2 million number. Says it's "a total myth." Anxiously waiting for Malkin to explain the extra-large blunder.

UPDATED: It's like the blind leading the blind with these wingnuts. Complete (purposeful?) incompetence.
