Yesterday morning during the much heralded reading of the Constitution (minus the awkward bits) on the House floor, the situation got a little, well, awkard, when a Birther interrupted the proceedings. It's been a while since we've heard from Birthers in such a public forum, so I guess it's high time one of them reared her ugly head. An unidentified woman took one for the Birther team when she yelled from the gallery, "Except Obama! Except Obama!" during the reading of the clause that states the president must be a "natural born citizen."

Birthers, who are missing basic skills of logic, reading comprehension and common sense, have some good timing. I'll give them that. And a copy of Obama's birth certificate, if they want it.
