    Some comments: 1) The quote that you cherry-picked from Monica Crowley was particularly bombastic. In my opinion it was not representative of the overall tone of almost all of the speakers. That being said, people tend to expect for speeches at rallies to be lively stemwinders, not placid, bland and monotonous, especially since the rally lasted for a full three hours. As far as the rally being "partisan," only a few of the rally's many many speakers fit that bill. My second comment: "The crowd of thousands...by appearance, largely Orthodox..." I was there and there were very few Orthodox people near me. There's a lot of photos of the event posted on the internet, and the crowd does not look "largely Orthodox." Maybe you were standing or walking in an area that was "largely Orthodox." I'm sorry to see that you were so "disappointed" by the rally. Perhaps if some of the large Jewish organizations had decided to step up to the plate, they would have organized a rally that would have been more to your liking. However, they did not step up, and an ad hoc group of mostly small and little known organizations did their best to fill the cavernous void. Considering how limited their resources were, I think they did a pretty good job throwing this thing together.
