Orly Taitz Shouted Down at CPAC

Add conservative political activists to the long list of judge, journalists and sane people who have now told Rancho Santa Margarita lawyer/dentist/real estate saleslady/Queen of the Birfers Orly Taitz to shut her pie hole.

The latest rebuke came at the CPAC convention near Washington, D.C. this weekend.

Taitz managed to find a seat near the middle of the packed room for a CPAC panel on Islam and national security. She inserted herself into the question and answer session by repeatedly asking why the panel was not discussing President Barack Obama's birth certificate.

Finally, Atlas Shrugged blogger Pamela Geller shot back, "I think there's enough substance on this panel, I mean how many topics can you handle? Inappropriate. really."

The moderator, who was from Breitbart.com, got into an exchange with Taitz over why that site has not covered the birfer issue, prompting the fellow to inform Andrew Breitbart had repeatedly made it clear his was not a birther site.

Loud boos from the crowd finally prompted Taitz to pick up her things and leave the room, as you can see in this video from Salon's Alex Seitz-Wald:

That Orly Taitz is bat shit nuts is not weighty (or indisputable) enough to bring CPACers and Obamaniacs together, but it's a start.
