Frayed Nerves


You can’t blame folks at Coakley headquarters for being a bit nervous when they encounter reporters.

Things are also tense at the Boston Globe, which declared Martha Coakley a winner today in an online election map – based on the returns they had in so far!

There’s only one problem, guys – the polls are open until 8 p.m.

The map called the race for Coakley 50 percent to state Sen. Scott Brown’s 49 percent. Independent Joseph L. Kennedy, no relation to the Kennedy clan, comes in last with a mere 1 percent.


Wishful thinking?

The bogus map shows Coakley capturing most of eastern Massachusetts all the way to the tip of Cape Cod.

“It was a test on a tool and it meant nothing. I don’t know how these things happen,” said the executive assistant to the editor of The editor, David Beard, has yet to return a call to the Herald.

What was it Freud said — there are no mistakes? There are also some tense Democrats in Washington, by the way, looking to make sure the right people are blamed for Coakley’s anticipated loss.

And in private conversations, Hill sources say White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel has blamed Coakley, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and Democratic pollster Celinda Lake for failing to see Brown’s surge in time to stop it.
