Hillary? Against Yelling?

Now and then, a story pops up that just needs a little comment, if nothing else for hilarity's sake.

That's why this little blurb from CBS about Hillary Clinton and a heckler caught me up in the chuckles. You can read the whole story, which I linked, but the salient paragraph is this:

“Because we can’t move from crisis to crisis, we have to be willing to come together as citizens to focus on the kind of future we want,” she said. As the shouts grew louder from an upper section of bleachers, she added, “which doesn’t include yelling. It includes sitting down and talking.”
This from the one who yelled at Congress "What difference does it make?" when pressed about her involvement or lack thereof in Benghazi. This from one who has made confrontation and partisanship a hallmark of her personal style—including yelling. I think you'll find plenty of yelling from Hillary through the years. To be fair, some of the recipients of her raised voice might have had it coming (can you hear me, Bill?), but still. Seriously?

What media will challenge these statements from Hillary the next time she's in full attack mode against conservatives or Republicans? Probably not many.

"What difference does it make?"

What hecklers should be asking. Over and over and over.
