The Obama campaign got what it asked for. Organizers for the anti-Iran rally at the United Nations booted Governor Palin from speaking after Obama operatives threatened the tax-exempt status of the organization responsible for the rally.
She was booted because the Obama camp did not want her speaking without an Obama surrogate able to speak and the Obama camp did not want an Obama surrogate anywhere near Palin, so they forced Palin off too.
As a result, the anti-Ahmadinejad rally turned into an anti-Obama rally. One attendee held up a sign that said “Jews Against Obama & Ahmadinejad.”
What would have been a mostly innocuous event has become more high profile thanks to the Obama camp’s bungled handling of it. Well done.
