She just can't stop shooting herself in the foot

You know what's demoralizing? Every time anything good happens to this campaign, Coakley or one of her aides or supporters screws it up by committing some sort of gaffe.

Coakley goes on the offensive against Brown's anti-victim amendment? The ad she runs on the issue spells Massachusetts wrong.

The DSCC runs a good ad attacking Brown's opposition to Wall Street regulation, but all anyone talks about is the image of the WTC.

Bill Clinton comes to town to rally the troops, and I'll bet a dollar to a donut it will be given equal time to Coakley's gaffe tonight calling Curt Schilling a Yankees fan.

There are plenty of other examples.

Is all of that trivial? Yes. But it's not like the news media became interested in trivia just to screw Coakley. The've always focused on the trivial. Our people have to know that they cannot make little mistakes that step on the message. How a campaign allegedly run by our party's best and brightest can be so inept day after day is beyond me.
