    Well, I see a birther, so wherever they are, a mental hospital that’s missing a patient must be close by…

    6th Avenue near 47th Street, New York City.

    National figure: Joy Behar. 🙂

    Easy peasy: Taitz (and Manning) protesting in front of Fox.

    Oh: you said national figure.

    They were protesting Bill O’Reilly IIRC.

    I figured Taitz was there, but I couldn’t pick her out of the crowd.

    Taitz had a YOOOGE crowd of supporters there. You can see them all in the little loon cage they put up for the occasion. BillO promptly caved in to her demands and became a full-on birther … or did he?

    The photo is taken from the entrance to News Corporation headquarters.

    Oh I see Orly now, she is wearing white, her back is to the camera, and she is mostly hidden by the man in the front center wearing a vest.

    This protest was in 2009, wasn’t it?

    Approx. 1206 6th Ave, NYC.

    And I believe I see Taitz’s wig hanging out behind the barrier.

    I did not take the picture but I was sat in pretty much that exact line of sight when it was taken.

    I was having a lunch time munch after an interview in Midtown and was sat watching this glorious fail after I realised it wasn’t a piece of street theatre

    One of the funniest parts was a rather tall and beefy street gentleman, well known in the area as a persistent but very polite panhandler, got pinned in a corner by the ScreechOwl who started on the whole panoply of USURPERATOR…..

    A man who probably feared nowt on the streets took off at velocity yelling “The b*tch be crazy..!!!!!”

    Happy times…….

    Dr. Conspiracy took the photo.

    Dr. C, or Joy Behar. Or maybe Halle Berry. That’s my final answer.

    I’m sorry. You didn’t win the $250,000.

    OK, hold it, let’s go right. Zoom in on the truck headlight, and freeze! I’ve got an image enhancer that can bitmap… look at the reflection, and…. and…. and… enhance!

    Now we’ll just use some algorithms, full screen, vector in on that one part there, now rotate it in 3-D. Oh my god, this is huge, it’s universe shattering, the photographer is, it’s…

    CARRIER LOST

    At least they were safely (and appropriately) placed in a playpen.
