Over at the Universal Hub where the editors are mostly sympathetic to Martha Coakley (they can’t let a dig at the AG go without one at Scott), the patience with incompetence is running thin.
One commenter, “no cookies,” sums up the Martha’s horrible adventure of a week this way
By no cookies? (not verified) – 1/16/10 – 12:28 pm
Let’s review the last 5 days:

-Tuesday: I didn’t see what happened,
-Thursday: Devout catholics shouldn’t be in emergency rooms,
-Friday: “Wall St. Greed” represented by photo of WTC in attack ad,
-Saturday: Curt Shilling? Another Yankees fan!
-Sunday: COMING SOON
-Monday: COMING SOON
-Tuesday: COMING FAR TOO SOON
Anyone who says that voting in primaries isn’t important from here on out is getting a punch in the face.
IN THE FACE
Maybe IN THE FACE is a Capuano supporter. Primaries do matter and when they become left-wing ideological hothouses, they have terrible consequences. For reasons of political expediency Coakley morphed into a unreconstructed leftist. The truth facing Democrats today is that Mike Capuano would probably never be in the place Coakley now struggles. That’s the price of passing the last litmus test (gender) in Democratic politics in Massachusetts.
