You really got to hand it to liberals, you know the “educated people”? First we learned that Abe Lincoln was a founding father from some MSNBC skank a few days ago, and now Martha Coakley has revealed that Curt Schilling is a Yankees fan! You know, the same Curt Schilling of the famed “bloody sock” game? The same Curt Schilling that helped the Boston Red Sox win a World Series in 2004 for the first time in 86 years breaking the “curse of the bambino”? Maybe next she will reveal Larry Bird or Kevin McHale are huge Laker fans too? Curt Schilling was of course was as stunned to hear this as me and owned Martha Coakley Saturday. According to CNN:
This is a serious charge in “Red Sox Nation”: Schilling is a part of baseball lore as the pitcher who battled through pain with a bloody ankle in 2004 to defeat the Yankees in Game Six of the American League Championship Series.
“I’ve been called a LOT of things,” Schilling wrote on his blog at 1:06 a.m. ET. “But never, and I mean never, could anyone ever make the mistake of calling me a Yankee fan. Well, check that, if you didn’t know what the hell is going on in your own state maybe you could….”
Schilling, who considered running for the Senate seat, is backing GOP nominee Scott Brown in Tuesday’s special election to replace the late Sen. Edward Kennedy.
Coakley quickly recanted her assertion after host Dan Rea challenged her on the statement in the Friday interview. A campaign spokesman told CNN that Coakley simply failed to deliver on the joke.
“Curt Schilling has been involved in a lot of strike outs over time,” the spokesman said. “I guess Martha whiffed on that joke.”
