Tea Hatriot vs Elizabeth Warren

fern hill posted an earlier clip of Elizabeth Warren as she concisely and passionately debunked the claim from the RightWing NutJobs aka extreme neo-conservatives, that increasing taxes on the wealthy is akin to "class warfare."

This is a recent clip of an exchange Warren had with a man who crashed a meeting with her campaign volunteers to harangue her.
[...] the man, who said that he has been unemployed for more than a year, voiced his frustrations with the anti-Wall Street demonstrations and took issue with Warren over her recent comments suggesting she had laid the "intellectual foundation" for the movement.

The pro-Warren crowd quickly moved to shout the man down, but Warren quieted the room so she could respond. "No, no, it's all right. Let me say two things," she said. "I'm very sorry that you've been out of work. I'm also very sorry that the recent jobs bill that would've brought 22,000 jobs to Massachusetts did not pass in the Senate."

Warren went on to address his question about her association with Occupy Wall Street. "I've been protesting what's been going on on Wall Street for a very long time," she said, but added that the movement has its own independent agenda and will proceed along its own course.

"Yeah, so has the Tea Party," the man said, before losing his cool. "Well, if you're the intellectual creator of that so-called party," he said, "you're a socialist whore. I don't want anything to do with you."
From here. Warren handled the man's questions with grace and respect. Compare and contrast her perspectives with the lunatic views of the darlings of the Tea Party, Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann.

She is a classy broad. The attack ads against her are going to be EPIC.

I actually fear for her life. If there is one thing that RWNJ crazies hate more than a progressive politician, it's a progressive politician who is a fearless, moderately religious, intelligent, outspoken woman.

Knock wood.

She is the one who should be tapped to run for VP with the nutless wonder in '12 if Hillary doesn't want it. Actually, she should run for the top slot, but that's not going to happen.

I especially love the very last few seconds of this video where the moron can't get the door open to complete his epic flounce out of the room. My guess is that he's pulling on the handle. Snicker!
