What do you think of Elizabeth Warren's recent exchange with a Tea Party heckler?

Asked by ETpro (34550points) November 4th, 2011

At a recent speech in Brockton MA, a Tea Party heckler attempted to derail the message Ms. Warren came to deliver. Here’s video.

Because of the crowd reaction, parts of his rant are difficult to hear, but you can read a transcript of his list of accusations here. They include a claim that she organized the OWS movement, that her “boss” ordered her to do it, and that her “boss” isn’t even an American. Kind of hits the trifecta of Tea Party Birtherism. So, does this make this poor sap’s story more compelling. Isn’t he working tirelessly to help the very people who cut his economic legs out from under him.

Good stuff. All I know is that I am very happy that I get to vote for her in 2012!

What a joke. It’s so sad how many people would listen to him and nod. I just don’t get why so many people are stupid on this earth but they are.

Elizabeth Warren: informed, well-spoken and polite, gives opposition time to speak, refers to opposing man as “Sir”.

Tea Partier: ignorant, rude, interrupts her speech and calls her a “whore”.

That sums it up nicely.

Bill Maher did a piece about people like this on his show. Essentially, he explained how people that think they’re aligned fully with the right think the right have their best interests at heart, when realistically, they would probably find they should be supporting some leftist policies. This isn’t the first person that has essentially blamed the entire left for their troubles, because the right is always on top of that and looking out for the poor and unfortunate everywhere….....~

I think it makes it clearer than ever for me which side I’m on.
