This Woman is Batshiat Insane

Fenway Park press box, Boston, Massachusetts, USA

After missing out on the Flutie endorsement, I’m guessing she is angling for that huge, vastly influential “Bucky ‘Effin’ Dent/Aaron ‘Effin’ Boone” loving Beantown voting bloc:

The Massachusetts special election continues to amaze. Democratic candidate Martha Coakley has taken a swipe at Fenway Park fans:

Coakley bristles at the suggestion that, with so little time left, in an election with such high stakes, she is being too passive.

“As opposed to standing outside Fenway Park? In the cold? Shaking hands?’’ she fires back, in an apparent reference to a Brown online video of him doing just that.

via Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion: Coakley Takes Slap Shot At Fenway Fans.

This is an almost criminally asinine thing to say anywhere within spitting distance of the Dirty Water. I am a die-hard Yankee fan, founder of The Darth Boss George Brigade, and even a mook like me knows better than to diss The Fen like this if I’m trying to convince undecided Massholes to vote for me. Compounding the stupidity is the fact that the day Brown was doing what any normal politician would do outside Fenway’s gates–but Coakley seems to believe is beneath her–the friggin’ Bruins were playing in the NHL’s ‘Winter Classic’ on the flooded and frozen Fenway playing field.

It takes a certain level of clueless, elitist, tone-deaf jackass to denigrate both Red Sox Nation (or, as like to call them: “Feckless Fenway Fuckwits”), and at the same time look down your nose at Beantown hockey fans in a state where Bobby Orr (aka: God on Ice) could be caught with an dead, underage male prostitute and still get elected Governor.

UPDATE: Teh Baconator weighs in on this stupidity:

There are just so many things wrong with that statement.

It shows her elitism and arrogance unbelievably. Aside from the apparent feeling that the seat belongs to her just by virtue of her party, she just admitted that she doesn’t need to bother meeting with constituents because she’s meeting people like Kim Driscoll, and political leaders, and Democrat activists. I guess they’re the ones that matter, huh? I know it’s a “special election” and all, but that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t need to fight for this seat. Prancing around with this mindset of “Oh, I’m a Democrat, therefore Ted Kennedy’s seat just automatically belongs to me regardless of what the people think,” is idiotic. Acting as if she doesn’t need to give her constituents the time of day is ludicrous. She can make all the snide remarks about Scott Brown shaking hands with people in the cold that she wants, but that’s what you’re supposed to do when you’re trying to get elected. She seems to have forgotten that she’s trying to get elected in Massachusetts, and not in Washington D.C. — if she remembered that, maybe she’d spend more time trying to impress Massachusetts voters and less time rubbing elbows with the Democrat establishment, Big Pharmacy lobbyists, and union leaders. Most normal politicians, Republican or Democrat, do go shake hands with voters. Even if it means standing in the cold outside of Fenway Park.

I used to think Coakley would win, barely, but now I’m coming around to the idea that she, and the DNC, is gonna catch a world-class bitchslap upside the head next Wednesday morning.
