In the spirit of post-partisanship in the golden age of Hopenchange, I’d like to offer some helpful advice to Martha Coakley as she continues to drop in the polls: Shut the f*#k up already! Stop talking!

Let’s see, she’s dissed Fenway and Red Sox fans, mis-spelled her own state in an ad (not to mention used an image of the World Trade Center in an anti-Brown ad), insulted Catholics, said there are “no more terrorists in Afghanistan,” and she just added another gaffe to the growing list.

Coakley’s latest in a long line of strikeouts was on a radio show yesterday, when she claimed — twice — that Curt Schilling is a Yankee fan:

Schilling responds.

If Scott Brown should pull off a miraculous Republican win on Tuesday, he’ll be able to thank Coakley for continually swift-boating herself.

In other Mass. election news, ABC News’ Jonathan Karl posted at 5 p.m. yesterday a brief article comparing a possible Dem loss on Tuesday to the ball that slipped through Bill Buckner’s legs in the 1986 World Series.

That’s a pretty good one — I wish I’d have thought of it. Oh wait, I did, about eight hours before Karl’s post. It’s probably just a coincidence, even though I notice things like that quite a bit (not with Karl specifically, but with the MSM in general) but rarely mention it here.

    Doug, I just posted this after Mr Karl's original and insightful article.
    I'm sure it will stick-

    *Stop stealing Doug's material!
    You owe Doug Powers an apology!

    Who do you think you are, Joe Biden?

    Haha! Funny…

    Like I said though, I don't know that what I wrote was what inspired his post, but I do notice that MSM reporters peruse the blogosphere for material quite a bit, which I wouldn't mind if they'd acknowledge where they got it from.

    It's pretty lame of that guy to steal what I thought was a pretty clever comparison. I always believed more famous writers and comedians were really just better at stealing other people's material. (see: Robin Williams)

    Doug, I posted that twice, neither stayed for long.
    Kaptain Karl must have some acorn goons moonlighting
    as state media censors.
    Truth Purgers! Progressive Punks!

    4 hours later and I'm still laughing at your "advise" for Coakley. This moron is truly the gift that keeps on imploding.
