J Street and Palin

Sarah Palin was invited to speak at the UN Rally against a Nuclear Iran today. Unfortunatly, J Street felt that her presence there would turnt the rally into a partisan event. Under some pressure, the organizers had to rescind the invitation.

Now, had the organizers, The Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations had instead only a liberal guest, (which is no big deal) would J-Street protested them making the rally into a partisan event? I mean, aren't THEY the ones now making it into a partisan event? Couldn't this rally, even if they disagree with her on major issues been a time when people can come together? Go figure these people.
