Update at bottom of post.
Love her or hate her, you have to admit that this lady gives one hell of a good speech:
Her words have a strong ring of truth and common sense.
Via NewsBusters, here's the picture of the crowd that attended Saturday's "Restoring Honor" rally that's guaranteed to drive liberal media members crazy:

Daniel Halper puts the crowd size in the hundreds of thousands:
[...] Radio and television personality Glenn Beck today hosted hundreds of thousands of rallying citizens from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. In what was an amazingly apolitical rally, Beck and his fellow speakers focused on three themes: faith, hope, and charity.Related video: Palin:"Get Back to Protecting Our Constitution":
The event, billed by its organizers "Restoring Honor," harkened back to revered American leaders, from the Founding Fathers to Martin Luther King Jr., and religious figures, particularly Moses, whom he continuously referred to as "the man with the stick and burning bush."
Offering a grim picture of where the country is today, while refraining from critiquing specific politicians or even particular policies, Beck hit a hopeful pitch, urging his minions to be more like the great Americans and religious figures he praised.
"Do we no longer believe in the individual, and the power of one individual?" Beck demanded. "No!" the crowd adamantly answered. "One man can change the world.That individual is you!"
[...] The rally coincided with the day of Reverend Martin Luther King's 1963 March on Washington. And many speakers, including Beck himself paid tribute to the civil rights leader who altered the course of American history through his peaceful civil disobedience and belief in God. Perhaps King's most memorable speech, the "I Have A Dream" address, was delivered, also, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
King's niece Alveda took the stage, in a move that will surely draw ire from Beck's critics.
King thanked Beck for organizing this rally and "focus[ing] on honor and the content of our character, and not the color of our skin." "The greatness of Martin Luther King was the faith he had in the American people," Beck said. (More)
Sarah Palin says that "a lot of common sense, constitutional conservatives" will be elected in November.Other related:
"That's what Americans are ready for - the kind of change where we get back to protecting our constitution and limiting government," Palin tells us, backstage at the Restoring Honor event. "That's what I think we see reflected here, even though this is a rally about restoring honor."
