Thanks to the sharp eye of the folks over at MassLive (and with a hat tip to Ed Morrissey over at HotAir), we’ve found out that wanna-be Massachusetts senator Martha Coakley released an advertisement in which the name of the state she wants to represent was misspelled.
Take a look for yourself at a screenshot from the ad:
This is the same woman who, during last night’s debate, said that there is no Taliban in Afghanistan. After, of course, ten Americans were killed by Taliban fighters this month alone.
And while Coakley faltered, Republican challenger Scott Brown shined. Asked by David Gergen about whether he’s ready to “sit in Teddy Kennedy’s seat,” Brown gave the following reply:
Obviously, there are more pressing issues to be considered when it comes to the upcoming special election in Massachusetts. This, however, goes to the fact that the Democrats are still taking their draw–especially in traditionally “blue” states–for granted. Coakley obviously is a few entrees short of a smorgasbord, but the party chose to run her nonetheless because they obviously felt as though another Democrat in Kennedy’s seat–excuse me, the people’s seat–was a shoe-in.
Regardless, it was a brilliant line and performance from Scott Brown. And as for Martha Coakley, perhaps she should consider moving to and running for the Senate in Ohio or Iowa or even New York, all of which are far easier to spell than M-A-S-S-A-C-H-U-S-E-T-T-S.
