Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney during a campaign stop in Virginia Thursday was heckled, if only briefly, by a global warming, er, “climate change” activist.

“It’s part of who we are as Americans to step forward when people need our help and this is one of those times,” Romney said, encouraging his supporters to donate to the Red Cross. “So thank you for the help you’ve provided and thank you for the help you’re going to provide.”

“What about climate change?” an unidentified heckler shouted out. “That's what caused this storm!"

He was quickly shouted down by chants of “USA!” from the crowd of Romney supporters.

For his part, the former Massachusetts governor did the only thing that should be done when someone interrupts a plea for charity with a politically-charged outburst: Smile and wait for them to be removed.
