Quote of the Week: Elizabeth Warren Responds to Heckler

The extraordinarily gracious Elizabeth Warren on the heckler who called her a ‘socialist whore’ at a campaign event:

“I actually felt sorry for the guy. I really genuinely did. He’s been out of work now for a year and a half. And bless his heart, I mean, he thought somehow it would help to come here and yell names….I’m not angry with him, but he didn’t come up with the idea that his biggest problem was Occupy Wall Street. There’s someone else pre-packaging that poison — and that’s who makes me angry.”
