What? Chris Shiflett was there? So I was warm and comfortable having lunch and stupidly missing Chris Shiflett? I feel so foolish right now!

P.W.

You forgot Susan Sarandon...

I was there. It was amazing, awesome. But there were not thousands of tractors. And the official Madison Police Dept crowd estimate was 85,000-100,000.

I don't think it helps to inflate crowd figures - just gives fodder to right wing antagonists.

I was there and I am telling you we heard there were over 100,000 and I must say it looked that way!

Here in Canada we are watching with excitement and solidarity. We support the Wisconsin protesters and consider them an amazing inspiration. You are fighting for democracry and your rights. You are standing up to those who want to take everything away from you and you are showing that you're a hell of a lot smarter than they give you credit for. These are your rights. You're showing us once again what America truly is. And we are proud of you.

Jesse Jackson was there too!
I agree, the estimate seems a little inflated. Not that it wasn't an impressive showing. It's just the largest estimate I've seen, and it's quite a bit higher than the others.
