NO WAR FOR KANGAROOS

NO WAR FOR KANGAROOS: John Hudock of Common Sense and Wonder notes that, if 1.5 million people marched against the war last weekend, “the protests attracted about as many people this weekend as the movie ‘Kangaroo Jack.'” Indeed, one wonders if it wasn’t the same group of people?

[UPDATE: The movie analogy is mainly humorous; it makes a point in a clever way but isn’t intended as a measure of the march. Obviously, it’s harder to get people to march in lousy weather to protest a war than to sit in a cozy theater to watch idiots chase kangaroos.
