The Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations has formally disinvited all politicians from its rally on Monday, September 22, to protest Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s presence at the U.N. General Assembly. The purpose of this, according to Ben Smith of Politico, was to come up with a face-saving way of specifially disinviting Sarah Palin — you know, Sarah Palin, the governor of one of the 50 states and the vice-presidential candidate of one of the two major American political parties. Why should she be present at a rally to protest Ahmadinejad?
We know why. This comes after Hillary Clinton bowed out in order to prevent herself from being in the same airspace as Palin.
There is only one thing to say about this: Has the world gone mad?
