Massachusetts Republican Senator Scott Brown faces a re-election challenge from Elizabeth Warren. Barack Obama tapped Warren to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, but Congressional Republicans in a rare fit of strength refused to go along.

Warren has claimed to be the intellectual author of the Occupy Wall Street movement, which is a pretty thin accomplishment indeed. At a recent meeting in Brockton, Massachusetts, a heckler demanded to know if this were so. Saying he had been unemployed since February 2010, he wanted to know why Warren supported job-killing government borrowing, spending, and regulation. Warren replied that she supported Obama’s “jobs bill” — apparently, just like God. Outraged, the man called her a “socialist whore” and stated, “Your boss” is “foreign-born.”
