  •  IMHO, heckling in general is bad form. (2+ / 0-)

    I've been surprised by the number of people here that think it's acceptable if the heckler's views line up with theirs. (see, eg, Occupy disrupting trials, people disrupting speeches by Mittens, glitter bombing, etc)

    There's nothing unusual about this case that distinguishes it from any other political event, though.  If you think heckling is obnoxious, you should be critical of it here; if you thought it was awesome that hecklers disrupted speeches by, say, Paul Ryan, you should support the rights of the hecklers here.
