…by flipping them off, locking them out, and calling the police on them.

As Gateway Pundit reports, this past Friday a Tea Party protest outside Democrat Senator McCaskill’s offices in St. Louis was received by her staff with obscene gestures and a refusal to hear their concerns. The protesters were voicing their objections to socialized, government-controlled healthcare and the inevitable (and already-proposed) tax increases and related financial irresponsibility being proposed by the Democrats. Apparently the staffers felt “they were being threatened”.

Real threatening-looking crowd, eh?

Um, no. Police? Senator McCaskill, is that how you respond to your constituents’ concerns? By insulting them and chasing them away?

Last night Senator McCaskill twittered: “I moved my office from fed bldg to street front when I got elected to make it more user friendly, approachable.“.

More approachable. Right.

(Update: McCaskill attempts to explain her staff’s behavior.  Not a real apology, you’ll notice: “sorry you were offended” rather than “sorry my staff members were such idiots”.  Moe would have banned her for that pathetic attempt.)
