A shouting match started by Reichert

It’s not clear if U.S. Rep. Dave Reichert was trying to test the levels of support for John McCain and Ron Paul, but that’s what he did when he said “Today we support John McCain as our nominee.”

The McCain supporters stood up and cheered, with some sign waving by Paul supporters.

He called for support again, and the McCain supporters stood again, but the Paul people started a chant that eventually threatened to drown out the McCain cheer.

He called for a show of support again, and both sides managed to shout each other into unintelligeable bedlamility.
