Hat tip to Michelle Malkin on this one. Malkin has been all over Martha Coakley’s habit of sticking her foot in her mouth. And Coakley, of course, has been more than generous with regard to providing new material.
First, Coakley decided to use the World Trade Center as a symbol of Scott Brown’s “Wall Street greed,” apparently neglecting to consider that it was just that type of symbolism which inspired Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to make the Twin Towers the target of his attacks in September 2001.
Then, Coakley–Attorney General Martha Coakley, that is–said that “the law says that people are allowed to have … religious freedom” in the context of discussing the Conscience Clause and Catholic hospital workers, apparently failing to understand that the law merely preserves a right provided by God. It was the British who allowed religious freedom in Massachusetts.
Then, a few hours ago, Malkin pointed out another ridiculous gaffe:
That’s right. That’s Coakley on a local radio show claiming that legendary Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling–also an outspoken conservative–is a Yankees fan. Could it be possible for this woman to be any more out of touch with the state she wants to represent? I mean, we already know she can’t spell the darned state correctly. And we know she’s okay with bringing battery charges against a father who punched an illegal Guatemalan immigrant who was touching his son in a supermarket bathroom stall.
This woman is an absolute joke, and it only goes to show that the Democrats think that you are stupid. They firmly believe that this Senate seat–Teddy Kennedy’s seat, to be sure–is all wrapped up and that all the folks in Massachusetts care about is the “D” next to Coakley’s name.
I can’t wait until the folks up there in the Bay State prove them otherwise.
