“You think she wears red sox on the feet in her mouth?”
Agreed! Her arrogance fills the air.
I seriously question her intelligence and mental state. She looks like a pill popper.
There’s a sports saying that bad teams find a way to lose. I guess that’s true of political candidates as well.
Well, she is the dems choice to replace Teddy. It's not like they have come to expect mental acuity from their senators.
The Amiraults case, I heard the son interviewed on Howie Carr yesterday!
This interview is STUNNING stuff on Coakly! She let this INNOCENT guy rot in jail just to prove she is tough on crime, and then lets a cop friend get out of jail with no bail AFTER USING A CURLING IRON TO MOLEST A LITTLE GIRL!!
She really stupid.
I almost expect her to announce that her first move a the new occupant of the “Kennedy Seat” will be to draft a Senate Bill demanding the American Sasquatch be immediately placed on the endangered species list.
A few weeks ago I predicted that Beck would start his turn left with Palin. He is just like Couric, Blitzer and many others in the MSM—his ego is just off the charts. I worked in the MSM for 20 years and his type is actually quite common. He just can’t stand it that Palin has the public adulation that he craves.
She opted out of breeding,,, at least we can thank her for getting outta the gene pool. (shallow end)
This broad’s in Never Never Land. That’s about as dumb as seeing Hillary wearing a Yankee cap.
I don’t think so Ted William is consider GOD in Boston
Is the Schilling gaffe being picked up by the Boston media, or are they giving Coakley another pass?
HMMM NOT YET
Give her time she is on the clock LOL!
She going insult probably great Celtric teams of yesteryear then she go to Bobby Orr then Ted William
I think she going insult Red Sox fan first
in 3 2 1
THE Andrew Sullivan
“Oh, dear God. The story of this campaign is starting to read like a Democratic strategist’s Book of Job. On sports radio station yesterday, Democratic Senatorial candidate Martha Coakley dismissed Curt Schilling as a “Yankee fan.”
It was a swing and a miss for senate candidate Martha Coakley, who made a major-league sports gaffe last night while being interviewed by WBZ-1030s Dan Rea.
I thought it was obvious but wanted to make sure. So Carr was for the Ravens? Weird.
Keep saying stuff like that Martha!
Keep having your thugs beat up innocent people!
Keep having the worst president in history call people with annoying recorded phone calls!
You are doing just fine!
Martha Coakley, the Democratic candidate for US Senate in the special election in Massachusetts, added to her long list of gaffes and missteps when she attested that Boston Red Sox’s great Curt Schilling was a “Yankees fan.”
I'm not sure which closer for Schilling's teams pitched worse in the World Series...Mitch Williams or Byung-Hyun Kim.Williams, by a considerable distance. The home runs distort each pitcher's shakeout, but if you took them away from each you'd find Kim had far out-pitched Williams. Kim walked only one batter and struck out six in the 2001 Series; Williams struck out one and walked four.
What people don't remember about Byung-Hyun Kim: He actually shook off that 2001 World Series disaster and put up a 2002 that would have given any other pitcher a lot of props---including having led the majors in what came to be called the tough saves, meaning saves of more than one inning and/or beginning by entering the game with men on base. Kim had six such saves, not to mention a 1.07 walks and hits per inning pitched average, a 2.04 ERA, 36 saves, a 3.54 strikeout-to-walk ratio, and an 8-3 won-lost record in the bargain.
It was his best season. And it still didn't convince anyone else that he had what it took. I think what happened to him afterward was a combination of these factors:
a) Sooner or later, the fact that people couldn't or wouldn't shake off the 2001 World Series as well as he actually did had to affect him somewhere and give him pause no matter how hard he tried to push it out of his thinking. That image of him sinking into a squat on the Yankee Stadium mound after the second night's disaster, his face buried in his glove, was just too indelible to too many people, even if to a man his teammates (including Curt Schilling, who was actually very fond of him in those days, as most of the Snakes were) had his back.
b) He was foolish enough to think he was better suited to a starting role; he might have been an effective spot starter as well as a reliever if the Diamondbacks had thought about it, but he was probably best suited as a relief pitcher.
c) He suffered an ankle injury in early 2003 and pitched through it, when the Diamondbacks gave him a shot at the starting rotation and he made it, and it took a lot of edge off his unique pitching motion.
d) He actually pitched well for the Red Sox when they acquired him in mid-2003, including in the postseason---at least, he was pitching well until Grady Little panicked after he started the ninth inning of the first division series game with the Red Sox up 4-3. Kim started with a fly out to center (Ramon Hernandez), a walk to pinch-hitter Billy McMillon, and a hit batsman (Chris Singleton), before striking out Mark Ellis. Kim had first and second and two outs with a lefthanded hitter coming up when Little lifted him for Alan Embree, playing the obvious enough percentage . . . but forgetting that Kim was usually very effective against lefthanded hitters; the hit batsman was a lefthanded hitter, and Kim was trying to work him inside and low, working for a ground out or a strikeout---his breaking pitches, especially, were good to throw inside for such results; his fastball, which was nasty at its best, was likely to get him a fly out working the lefthanded hitter inside. No matter. Embree's first batter, Erubiel Durazo, swatted the RBI single that tied the game, before Embree got the inning-ending ground out (Eric Chavez) that sent the game to extra innings for Derek Lowe to lose, 5-4.
d) Kim couldn't get out of his own way, and this may be the biggest flaw he had. Trained from youth to keep throwing no matter what, Kim became an object lesson in how a stubborn work ethic can kill you on the mound. He threw constantly between appearances; behind the bullpen, in the clubhouse under the stadium, between games, you name it, Kim would be there throwing. Especially after a tough or bad outing. It was only a matter of time before he would burn himself out completely (the Diamondbacks subsequently admitted that this was one of the reasons why they were willing to listen when the Red Sox came looking to make a deal for him); his constant working first drained his relationships with his teammates (several Red Sox complained that it was impossible to convince Kim to ease up, relax, and join up on the road), then drained the talent. And it was a shame, because he should have been able to forge a fine career no matter what happened in the 2001 Series. The 2002 season showed there really was something there, and for Kim to have pitched that well while having the 2001 Series constantly thrown in his face was probably nothing short of a miracle.
Which was more than you could say for Mitch Williams, a pitcher who seemed to thrive on living dangerously even before the 2003 Series. He went from there to two nondescript seasons in Houston and Anaheim, tried a comeback in Kansas City two years after that, got hammered in six and two thirds innings total work, and was gone.
Coakley is typical of Dem women like Pelosi, Boxer, etc...
Stupid, uninformed, yet the MSM gives her a free pass and ignores the ridiculous and idiotic statements that come out of her mouth.
Compare that to how the MSM treats the likes of a Sarah Palin.
The MSM resorts to lies and half-truths in order to smear and slander her, yet Coakley and other Dems get a free pass.
Coakley is a laughingstock, yet the MSM does their best to hide her incompetence.
He's for whoever is playing the Patriots...like me. He opened the phone lines to people who wanted to call in and make fun of them after the Ravens game...LOLOL! It was hysterical!

She already did insult Bruins fans. In a Globe interview published last Sunday, she was asked if she was being too passive by not reaching out to the public. Her answer was
“As opposed to standing outside Fenway Park? In the cold? Shaking hands?”, in an apparent reference to a Brown online video of him doing just that prior to the NHL Winter Classic Flyers/Bruins game.
Coakleys a GOP mole; shes just gotta be.
Best explanation I have heard yet!
The crimes, in order of perp for those not steeped in Red Sox baseball:
--the high throw enabling Enos Slaughter's mad dash and leaving Johnny Pesky with a misleading image of holding the ball;
--starting Denny Galehouse instead of Mel Parnell, not to mention lifting Ellis Kinder in Yankee Stadium;
--the stumble rounding third that helped kill a rally and possibly cost a Red Sox pennant;
--the eephus pitch Tony Perez drilled into the ether;
--lifting Jim Willoughby a hitter or three too prematurely;
--starting Bobby (This Kid Has Ice Water In His Veins) Sprowl over Luis Tiant, enabling the finish of the Boston Massacre;
--throwing the pitch that had B.F. Dent's name on it;
--committing the passed ball that was ruled, wrongly, a wild pitch, allowing the tying run to score ahead of
--Mookie Wilson and the croquet shot heard 'round the world; and,
--committing to Pedro Martinez's heart without bothering to check whether the arm had equal life left.
Good thing Dame Coakley isn't running in Illinois. She'd probably try to make a case that Charley Root (he threw the three pitches Babe Ruth bombed out of Wrigley Field, including the alleged called shot), Jolly Cholly Grimm (he was fool enough to let Hank Borowy---still the last known Cub to win a World Series game---start Game Seven, 1945, on one day's rest, rather than let a well-rested Hy Vandenburg out of his doghouse with a real shot at winning the Series), Leo Durocher (who mismanaged the 1969 Cubs out of a National League East they could have won just as the Miracle Mets began reheating in earnest), Leon Durham (he telegraphed poor Bill Buckner in the 1984 National League Championship Series), Don Zimmer, Steve Bartman, and Alex Gonzalez (he let the double play ball bounce off his chest, the real opening to the Marlins' feeding frenzy in 2003) were White Sox fans.
But Bobby Orr is...:)
I thought former Governor Jane Swift was the dumbest politician I’ve ever seen here in Massachusetts. That is, before Martha Coakley came along.
This woman reminds me of Kathleen Kennedy Townshed in Maryland.
Also I’m holding my head straining painfully to imagine what on earth is going to happen if Coakley is elected?
Boston stations are running commercials for both candidates 24/7 and without exception run Coalkley’s ads last in hopes Bay Staters’ memories are as short as a carp.
ACORN and SIEU are blasting away in the state.
But is obvious that Bay Staters are pissed and they’ll be really pissed if Coakley wins.
If Coakley wins? Well, the Mexicans won at the Alamo.
or Caroline Kennedy in NY. You know? :)
I just hope Croakley is dumb enough to say something bad about Carl Yastrzemski.
If she says something bad about Yaz then it is all over.
I am confused? SEIU members for Scott Brown? Huh?
They won California, too.
There are a number of FR threads about it and some links.
The man featured in the youtube is in the lower left side of a couple of pictures here. He is in a wheelchair.
well Yaz did grow up on Long Island...... before the Mets existed...... so he may be a secret Yankees fan
but someone should try to get Croak-ly to say that
Ray tell that to Martha don’t tell us Freepers who are sport fan I am Dodger fan I know Curt probably reason why Red Sox won
I got better idea have make fun of Ted William that be cherry on top
I just hope Croakley is dumb enough to say something bad about Carl Yastrzemski.Oops! Forgot to tell you---Yaz was bought and paid for by CBS and was part of the deal when the Steinfuehrer bought the team from the network! ;)
If she says something bad about Yaz then it is all over.
I had heard that this Coakley person was trashing the Catholic Church as well as the Red Sox. I knew what she said about pro-life catholics but I did not know what she said about the Red Sox. This woman is just plain nuts. Its worth mentioning that Connecticut is also relying on an Attorney general to save the day for the democrats. So maybe there will be more of the same in November in Connectiucut.
Her pal Bill Clinton currently lives in NY. Therefore Crokaley loves the Jets and has a Mookie Wilson poster in her bedroom!
She is a gift to the GOP.
She is a gaffe machine in motion! She makes Biden look good.
“Senator Scott Brown” SOUNDS AWESOME!!!
GO SCOTT GO!!!!!!
