During a panel on Islam and national security by CPAC's "Uninvited" anti-Islam activists, birther queen Orly Tatiz interrupted the question and answer session by repeatedly asking about President Obama's birth certificate, and demanding that the panel explain why it wasn't addressing the topic.

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

"We are not a birther site," the moderator, from, told Taitz before she was shushed by the crowd. She left the room shortly after.
