More comical, right-wing crowd estimates from Saturday's tea parties

This one came from Quincy, Illinois, where according to the right-wing blogosphere 12,000 people showed up to condemn Obama. That's right: 12,000 in the relatively small town of Quincy, Ill.

Fact: Divide that number by six and you might be right.

From the Quincy Herald Whig:

Quincy police estimated Saturday's crowd at between 2,000 and 2,200 at 2:30 p.m.

I guess it was fitting that Andrew Breitbart was a featured speaker in Quincy on Saturday. He's also allergic to facts.
