VIDEO: How to handle a stocking full of coal at Christmas

Occupy New Mexico hits up the offices of NM Gov. Susana Martinez to deliver a stocking full of coal with the hopes of prodding her into Medicaid expansion.

A member of Martinez's constituent services group comes out to meet the protestors, listens respectfully, takes the stocking of full coal, and promises "I'll definitely give this to Governor Martinez." He then offers a few more courtesies and finishes, "I'll make sure this gets to the Governor."

Then the best part -- he takes the stocking full of coal into the office.

If Emily Post were to write a chapter on dealing with the Occupy movement, it would certainly look something like this.
