from Gateway Pundit:
Here’s the conversation this week on “Nightside With Dan Rea,” where Martha Coakley called Boston Red Sox great Curt Schilling a Yankees fan.
It was so bad that Curt Schilling wrote on his blog, “I’ve been called a LOT of things… But never, and I mean never, could anyone ever make the mistake of calling me a Yankee fan.”
Yesterday, Coakley tried to explain away her Boston baseball faux pas.
The Boston Herald reported:
“It was a joke, and probably not the best,” Coakley said after an afternoon rally in Melrose. “I don’t pretend to be the best joke teller in the world.”
It Martha Coakley is going to lie about Curt Schilling and baseball what’s going to stop her from lying about health care, or terrorism or Scott Brown’s record on rape victims?
Of course, you don’t have to be a baseball fan to know the answer to that question.
The polls Open in 39 HOURS!! Which means that we are just over 50 hours from starting to see the first poll results……. 50 hours to see if the Massachusetts Senate race is the beginning of the New Revolution!
As someone said yesterday, a win for Brown will be the 2nd “shot heard round the world” or the “SCOTT heard round the world”!

The mailer claims that Scott Brown is opposed to treatment for rape victims. The reality is that Scott Brown had proposed an amendment, which failed, that would allow healthcare workers to avoid giving emergency contraception to rape victims if it was against their religious beliefs. He did not oppose the availability of the treatment to rape victims, despite his amendment failing, and he voted to override Gov. Romney’s veto.
But for the second time in less than a week, the Coakley campaign is using the amendment to give the idea that Brown opposes treatment for rape victims.
From the Washington Post:
Republican Scott Brown charged Saturday that a Democratic mailing against his U.S. Senate campaign violates a Massachusetts law prohibiting false statements against a political candidate.
The cover of a four-page mailer sent by the Massachusetts Democratic Party says, “1,736 women were raped in Massachusetts in 2008. Scott Brown wants hospitals to turn them all away.”
Brown is a state senator, and in 2005 he filed an amendment that would have allowed workers at religious hospitals or with firmly held religious beliefs to avoid giving emergency contraception to rape victims. The amendment failed, and Brown voted in favor of a bill allowing the contraception. He also voted to override a veto issued by his fellow Republican, then-Gov. Mitt Romney.
A section of the Massachusetts General Laws prohibits false statements against political candidates that are designed or tend “to aid or to injure or defeat such candidate,” with a penalty of to $1,000 fine and up to six months in prison.
Brown campaign legal counsel Daniel Winslow said, “People can shade things and spin things, but it has to have some kernel of truth.”
Coakley campaign spokesman Corey Welford said: “This is a failed attempt by his campaign to divert attention from the fact that Scott Brown filed an amendment that would have prevented women who have been raped from getting the health care that they need.”

Perhaps the RNC should have put out mailers detailing the gruesome sexual assault by a police officer against his 23 month old niece with a curling iron, and the manner in which the Coakley office put off arresting or prosecuting the officer, whose father happens to be a union official. It took the family, through an attorney, to actually get the case the proper handling it deserved, giving the officer two life sentences.

In a state that has a large Catholic population, AG Martha Coakley may have just uttered the words to “seal the deal” for Scott Brown:
“You can have religious freedom but you probably shouldn’t work in the emergency room.” The entire interview is posted here.
Democrat Martha Coakley was on with Ken Pittman from WBSM in Massachusetts today. Martha told Ken that if you object to abortion and are a devout Catholic then…
“You probably shouldn’t work in the emergency room.”
The DEMS are worried, fearing that the fate of the Obama agenda rests on the shoulders of a candidate who ran a campaign of complacency!
