In case you missed it: Glenn Beck’s ‘Restoring Honor’ rally raised $5.5 million for wounded soldiers

The media were so busy obsessing over the racial composition of the crowd this weekend that there was almost no attention paid to one of the undeniably positive outcomes of the Glenn beck rally this weekend. Fortunately, a few news outlets, including Politico, did take notice:

Beck, a fiery conservative populist, had urged his followers to leave political signs at home. He said that he wanted to celebrate America’s military personnel and accounted that the rally raised $5.5 million, which would go to the veterans’ charity Special Operations Warrior Foundation after defraying event costs.

People may object to Beck’s politics, but that alone probably made this weekend’s rally a worthwhile event.
