    Funny stuff!

    "As opposed to standing outside Fenway Park? In the cold? Shaking hands?" - Martha Coakley

    Coakley quote even caused dismay in White House - Local News Updates - MetroDesk - The Boston Globe

    It was a quote in The Boston Globe that caught a lot of people's attention. Now, it turns out that it even caught the attention of the president of the United States at the White House early this yar, causing him to grab an aide's shirt and exclaim in dismay.

    Jonathan Alter, in his new book, "The Promise: President Obama, Year One," writes that when aide David Axelrod told him that Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Martha Coakley had said those words, Obama reached out and grabbed his shirt.

    "No! No! You're making that up! That can't be right! Tell me she didn't say that!" the president said, tossing in a few obscenities, according to Alter.

    I've stated that Coakley was a moron and a horrible candidate for some time now. This is nothing new, and particularly why I said this shouldn't be looked at as a referendum on Obama, health care reform, etc.

    Actually the quote would have made a lot of sense if the Winter Classic hadn't been at Fenway this year. There's generally not a lot happening at Fenway in January.

    Damn you NHL!!! :p

    I could make a post stating the sky is blue and JackBauer would have to come along and find something negative to say. :rolleyes:

    While Coakley being a moron is nothing new, this firsthand report of Obama's reaction to her idiocy is indeed news.

    That's what the quote was specifically referring to. She was challenged on her campaign being out of touch, etc, and the fact that Brown was at that event "standing in the cold shaking hands" and got some good publicity out of it was what precipitated her remark in the first place.

    Coakley got what she deserved and so far Brown isn't too bad. If we have to have a Republican, at least it's a RINO.

    He's about as conservative as can be elected in Ma.

    Martha's reward is she gets to keep her job as it seems she's running unopposed this year. I hate this state.

    I like the Democrats and will certainly vote for Patrick, but this state is in dire need of an opposition Party. I think our legislature must be among the most corrupt, largely because the Republicans aren't powerful enough to stop them. I want the Democrats to retain power in this state, but we really need more Republicans in the legislature!
