"[Slactivism](http://www.commondreams.org/view/2010/10/27-6)" critiques aside, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s highly anticipated weekend rally seems to have been a success, as far as numbers are concerned: [CBS News estimated](http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-20021284-503544.html) that 215,000 attended, more than double the turnout at [Glenn Beck’s spectacle](http://colorlines.com/archives/2010/09/gelnn_beck_launches_political_news_website.html) back in August. Missed it? Here’s a good recap.
Stewart, Colbert Draw 215,000 to Washington
Take that, Glenn Beck.
