Americans Rally Against Health Care Takeover

We noted here that a group led by Michele Bachmann was organizing a protest against the Democrats’ government takeover of health care, to take place at noon today on the Capitol steps. The protest went off as planned, with 10,000 attending, according to one estimate. The Minneapolis Star Tribune, no friend of Bachmann, reports on the rally. This photo is from InstaPundit:

UPDATE: Here are some AP photos from today’s rally. Here is part of the crowd:
