A Congressional Bid and a Birther Monologue
NASHVILLE — The author and Fox News analyst Angela McGlowan — one of very few African-Americans present at the National Tea Party Convention — used a short dinner speech to basically announce a bid against Rep. Travis Childers (D-Miss.). “I can’t announce it now,” she said, but on Monday, she’d announce something — and by the way, Childers “is about to lose his job!”
Joseph Farah, the editor in chief of WorldNetDaily, took the stage after McGlowan and ran with the ball. “I get to be the first person to formally endorse your quest!” Farah went on to give a speech that focused, for around 10 minutes, on his questions about Barack Obama’s birth certificate — about which I’ll write more shortly.
McGlowan’s speech was notable, too, for a really amazing bit of product placement. “Now why did I join the Tea Party movement?” she asked. “It was the same reason I wrote my book, ‘Bamboozled: How Americans Are Being Exploited by the Lies of the Liberal Agenda.’” She said the whole subtitle.
