Martha Coakley = Bill Buckner
My friend Bill Glauber says. Curse of the Bambino, indeed.
UPDATE: In comments Charlie says they're actually very different:
Several notable differences. Buckner could string a coherent sentence together. Coakley could not.
Buckner apologized and admitted the mistake was his. Coakley didn't.
Buckner took a vacation after the World Series was over. Coakley took a week's vacation in the MIDDLE of the campaign!!
But Jay you are right. They both blew what should have been a sure
