I’m sorry, I’m just in no mood for foolishness today, and it’s made me a tad less diplomatic than I like to try to be.
But I must direct your attention to two stupid, nasty women. And, perhaps, one deluded man. No, two deluded men!
Martha Coakley: Evidence of Stupid:
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.
Um. Yes, stupid. It’s the best thing a politician running in Boston can do. Idiot.
As opposed to you know, letting one of your associates get physical, while you stand there and watch, which is evidence of being both nasty (or at least being callous) and -again- evidence of stupidity. My word, lady, that is not what is meant by “bully” pulpit!
So, there you have Martha Coakley: As nasty as Barbara Boxer; as stupid as Patty Murray. She’ll fit right in with the senate, if what we are looking for is “more of the same.”
Gail Collins:, of the increasingly haphazard NY Times, makes my job easy by being stupid and nasty in one craptacular column, wherein she admits Coakley is a disaster, but gamely shows her non-biased, professional newsgal support for her, anyway by…going after Scott Brown’s kids. Because it’s what people like Collins do. So, stupid enough to back the stupid and nasty Coakley; nasty enough to bring kids into it, yet again. Your honor, I rest my case.
Deluded man #1: That would be President Obama who … oh, I’ll just let Ed explain it.
Deluded man #2: Newt Gingrich says he is top contender for 2012: Note to Newt; you’re not.
Honestly, I’m beginning to think everyone in public office is nuts, a majority of people in the media are nuts, and that yes, the voters are dangling off the Cliffs of Insanity, themselves.
Ed Driscoll has a huge roundup on Coakley, including the (paraphrased here) “maybe Catholics shouldn’t work in healthcare” soundbite.
Michelle Malkin says this is Coakley’s Marie Antoinette moment
