Coakley Calls Schilling "Another Yankees Fan"

Martha Coakley should take a vow of silence.

Last night, while being interviewed by Dan Rea on WBZ Radio, she referred to Boston Red Sox legend and future Hall of Famer Curt Schilling as "another Yankees fan."

Coakley had made reference to former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a well known Yankees fan, campaigning here yesterday on behalf of Brown. When Rea countered with Schilling's endorsement she associated with him with the pinstripes.

When Rea corrected her she weakly countered Schilling wasn't with the Sox anymore. That hardly makes him a Yankees fan.

OK, Coakley isn't a baseball fan and that remark doesn't mean she can't sit in the Senate. But it does reinforce how aloof and out of touch she is with the real world not to mention one of this state's most popular sports legends.

She might as well have said that her favorite baseball player is Derek Jeter.
