HEADLINE: 'WANT ANOTHER REASON NOT TO VOTE FOR MARTHA COAKLEY???'
SUBJECT: Martha Coakley's ill-advised dig at Scott Brown's glad-handing outside of Fenway Park. She suggested it's not worth "standing outside Fenway Park? In the cold? Shaking hands?"
SCHILLING'S RESPONSE: "There are just so many things wrong with that statement"
SUCH AS: "Her elitism and arrogance ... the apparent feeling that the seat belongs to her just by virtue of her party"
WHAT COAKLEY IS DOING: "Prancing"
SCHILLING'S QUESTIONS: "Has she forgotten who she's talking to? What state she's wanting to represent in the Senate?"
SCHILLING'S HOPE: "If she hasn't done it yet, Martha Coakley may have just killed her campaign. "
FUNDAMENTAL TRUTH: "It's Massachusetts. You do not make sneering insults about Fenway Park"
NEW QUESTION: "What's she going to do next, insult the Red Sox?"
THE LAST WORD:
Fenway Park and the Red Sox are damned near sacred to Massachusetts residents, Bostonians in particular. Really, I'm starting to think that she just doesn't want to get elected or something. Because anyone with half a modicum of sense knows that you do not go into Boston and mess with Fenway Park.
