How Elizabeth Warren Handles a Very Rude Heckler

Heckled at a campaign meeting in Brockton, Massachusetts on Wednesday night, Elizabeth Warren managed to stay cool and even give her audience-based antagonist some answers, until he called her a "socialist whore." The heckler, who said he had been out of work since February 2010 and supported the Tea Party, asked about the Massachusetts Senate candidate's affiliation with Occupy Wall Street after she told NewsBeast last week she had "created much of the intellectual foundation for what they do." It's tempting to make you watch the video at Huffington Post to find out what the poor heckler says to her on that point, but as he's getting shouted down by the crowd it's a little hard to understand, his full line was: "If you're the intellectual creator of that so-called party, then you're a socialist whore!" The best part is when he then tries to make a dramatic exit through the locked door.
