[contextly_sidebar id="SR7dEUmFnQnQEXeCNjioYwc2ps4pHikv"]At a town hall event in New Hampshire Sunday, Hillary Clinton got a taste of New England's tradition of participatory democracy, as immortalized in Norman Rockwell's classic painting celebrating free speech. Except instead of a Jimmy-Stewartish kind of regular guy speaking homespun wisdom, Clinton was treated to Republican state Rep. Katherine Prudhomme O'Brien trying to shout down other members of the audience with questions about Bill Clinton's wandering weiner. O'Brien made a point of shouting questions and waving her arms without being called on, and when Clinton finally told her, "You are very rude, and I'm not going to ever call on you," the crowd cheered, some giving Hillz a standing O.

Which, of course, is what O'Brien really wanted to know more about: all those standing o's Bill Clinton got in the White House and elsewhere, especially the rapey ones. While her yelling isn't quite audible enough to make out on the video, O'Brien later explained to CNN that she wanted answers, dammit, about Bill Clinton the sex monster:

"I asked her how in the world she can say that Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey are lying when she has no idea who Juanita Broaddrick is," O'Brien said. "She told me this summer she doesn't know who she is and doesn't want to know who she is. How can she assess that they are lying, which she told someone last month?"

We're going to guess that Hillary Clinton has probably heard of Juanita Broaddrick once or twice in the past 20 years, maybe, so we're rather disinclined to give a lot of credit to O'Brien's insistence that Hillary Clinton had a chat with her in which she said she'd never heard of the woman.

O'Brien explained that she's only out to make sure that America knows that Hillary Clinton doesn't really support rape victims, because of course Bill is a rapist, according to all Republicans and no courts of law ever.

CNN's reporter asked O'Brien whether she might be seen as merely a partisan troll, seeing as how she's a Republican state representative (this being New Hampshire, roughly a third of the state's population is in the House of Representatives at any given moment). O'Brien explained that Bill Clinton's sex scandals -- which couldn't even get him convicted during impeachment back during our long nightmare of prosperity years ago -- were actually the reason she switched parties back in the 1990s:

I was a Democrat, but I became a Republican because of this ... because of this stuff. Because of what I saw happen in the Clinton years, the hypocrisy of so-called women that fight for women. It's the height of hypocrisy.

You know, just like every online commenter who voted for Obama -- twice! -- but then became disillusioned with him when he turned out to be a feckless tyrant whose weakness and penchant for dictatorship will end freedom forever. CNN notes that O'Brien has made something of a hobby out of heckling presidential candidates:

She boasted to reporters after the event about trying to ask Clinton about the issue late last year and the New Republic dubbed her "New Hampshire's Most Annoying Voter" in 2007 after she heckled former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

O'Brien did at least tell CNN that she wasn't planning to heckle Bill Clinton, during his two scheduled campaign appearances Monday in New Hampshire. Or at least she "has no plans" to heckle him -- who knows, maybe she'll happen to show up and spontaneously heckle him instead.
