49. It is a great response, but not as out of the ordinary as you imply
It is more common for Democratic politicians as most of them are more comfortable with a diversity of opinion than the Republicans. In 2009, there were MANY Democratic Senators and Congressmen who acted just like that when confronted. In some cases, they made the news - and were spun as the tea party making a point! (There was one McCaskill town hall like that) and others that didn't - like the town halls for Kerry and some of the MA Congressmen. The media preferred the funnier sound bites of Barney Frank telling one woman he would rather debate his dining room table.)

It is the best way - and this shows that Warren, running for the first time has great poise, presence and the ability to control the situation. It was excellent that she turned the comment to sympathizing that he was unemployed and might have been helped by the jobs bills (left unsaid - Brown joined the filibuster)
