Malcolm-not-in-the-middle Strikes Again

From an editorial in today's Washington Jewish Week Online Edition:
An invitation from the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations and the Republican Jewish Coalition was recently forwarded to us. The invitation is for a host city reception with Bush administration officials, as well as House and Senate leaders, to be held at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York City during the Republican National Convention.

Accompanying the forwarded e-mail was the comment: "Funny, but I don't remember the Conference of Presidents sponsoring anything at the Democratic Convention!"

In actuality, the Presidents Conference was listed as a co-sponsor for a reception that The Israel Project held during the Democratic National Convention in Boston.

But, it didn't hold a joint event with RJC's counterpart, the National Jewish Democratic Council.
