Coakley Calls Curt Schilling a Yankee Fan

I may live in Massachusetts, but as you all know, I’m a Yankee fan. Still, as much as I can’t stand the Sox, as a fan of baseball in general, one has to admire former Sox pitcher Curt Schilling.  His “bloody sock” incident during the 2004 World Series represented a feat that Red Sox fans will always remember.

Since Massachusetts is a place where people take sports very seriously, criticizing their sports heroes is not something that a candidate for Senate in Massachusetts should want to do.  Enter Martha Coakley (who lately has been playing on the Joe Biden league of gaffs).  In an interview yesterday, she was asked about Rudy Giuliani appearing with Brown, and she mentioned that Giuliani was a Yankee fan.  The host of the show then responded back “yeah, but Scott Brown has Curt Schilling, OK?”  To which Coakley responded “Another Yankee Fan!”

So let me get this straight.  Coakley called one of the all-time heroes of Red Sox Nation a fan of the hated New York Yankees.  Talk about endearing herself to her constituency.  If Brown wins on Tuesday (and signs are pointing in that direction, although nothing is certain at this point), it will be because of two things.  First, dissatisfaction with the status quo, Obama’s policies, and the Democrats in general put Scott Brown in contention.  His likability as a candidate also factored in.  But Martha Coakley’s complete and utter incompetence as a candidate may very well be responsible  for putting Brown over the edge.
