I have dedicated myself to compiling the wit and wisdom of Massachusetts Democratic senatorial candidate Martha Coakley in the campaign, but she is making it tough to keep up. Yesterday on Nightside with Dan Rea on Boston’s WBZ Newsradio 1030 Coakley gave us this:
Dan Rea: Would Barack Obama be in if this thing was not this close?
Martha Coakley: Umm…it’s hard to know, I think that he is welcome in Massachusetts and I’m sure everybody is happy to see a president come.
Rea: 62 to 36
Coakley: But I think probably if it weren’t so close Rudy Giuliani would be here and besides he’s a Yankee fan. (Laughter.) I just want people to know. (Laughter.)
Rea: Uhhh, yeah, but now Scott Brown has Curt Schilling…
Coakley: …and another Yankee fan.
Rea: Curt Schilling a Yankee fan?
Coakley: Nooo, alright I’m wrong on my, I’m wrong.
Rea: The Red Sox’s great pitcher of the bloody sock?
Coakley: Well, he’s not there anymore.
Who can forget Curt Schilling’s contribution to Red Sox history or Schilling’s bloody sock? Coakley spokesmen plead that she was only joking. Now that’s funny.
Let’s go to the tape.

UPDATE: The dogged R.H. Potfy has somehow scored an exclusive look at Coakley’s new ad decrying Scott Brown as a Yankees fan (among other things)!
