Breaking news: Curt Schilling still not a Yankees fan

On WBZ radio yesterday, Martha Coakley brought along a spade to dig herself in even deeper. When asked about Curt Schilling’s support for Scott Brown, she dismissed Schilling as “another Yankee fan.”

This has to be her stupidest comment yet.

After an awkward silence, the interviewer asked:


“Yes,” Coakley confirmed.

“Curt Schilling? A Yankee fan?”

The amazement of Dan Rea, veteran television and radio journalist and native Bostonian, was obvious from his incredulous tone.

“No. All right. I’m wrong on my… I’m wrong.”

“The Red Sox great pitcher of the bloody sock?”

“Well, he’s not there any more.”

If I were texting this to you, my next tweet would be “WTF?????????”

Then “OMG!!!!!!!!!”

I was so shocked at this exchange that I thought Martha had lost all her marbles. Today I’m wondering if she had any marbles to start with.

Holy smokes.

What planet was she on in 2004?

Today I received this voice message from Curt Schilling, who confirmed that he was never a Yankees fan, not even a closet one.

  1. Martha Coakley's campaign has been plagued by gaffes for weeks, but as the election approaches, her misfires seem to be coming faster and they’re all equally funny and concerning. They include the following errors:
    Her crack staff misspelled Massachusetts in one attack ad.
    In another ad she depicted the World Trade Center before it was destroyed in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and tried to depict Scott Brown as a Wall Street crony. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani suggested Coakley owed the families of the 9/11 victims an apology.
    During a debate with Brown, Coakley declared Afghanistan free of terrorists.
    These mistakes and the Shilling gaffe evidence a pattern and suggest that Martha hasn’t prepared well or worked very hard during this campaign.
    These errors also evidence that Coakley and the Democrat machine have assumed that this Senate seat was and is theirs.
    This sense of entitlement is by far her most serious gaffe and will, I believe, cost her this election.

  2. "Marcia" Coakley is mean.

  3. It wasn't even one year in office and people have already had enough of obama. Go Scott go!
