Michele Bachmann's tea party yesterday may have left her with an inflated sense of her influence and popularity — at least, judging by the fact that she put the number of tea partiers who showed up yesterday to five times the estimate in some news accounts.
Bachmann went on the Mark Levin show last night and claimed that the total number of attendees was "20,000 minimum."
The source for this figure is unknown. MSNBC cited Capitol Police yesterday afternoon putting the number at 3,000-3,5000. Later MSNBC revised it up to 4,000, also citing police sources.
