Birther Interrupts Reading Of Constitution

“For those of us who watched television, what they saw looked like a black party,” Daley told Novak.
“William Daley was no racist,” Novak assured his readers, but the comment is at least a reminder that his 2009 Washington Post op-ed urging Democrats to avoid the appearance of a leftward tilt is hardly new.
The woman yelled, “My name is Theresa” as she was removed from the gallery.
