As a conservative leaning independent, I should be thrilled. For like-minded people around the country, Tuesday was nothing short of spectacular. As someone of this philosophy living in Virginia, I should be elated. Three, and perhaps four, of the state’s congressional Democrats lost.
But as a native Marylander who is devoted to the Baltimore Orioles, hates the Indianapolis Colts, knows crabs are the best food on Earth and still remembers (and more to the point believes) the old marketing campaign that said Maryland was “America in Miniature,” I am nothing short of deflated.
The Republican Rock Star Bus Tour which stormed through nearly every state in the nation seems to have bypassed Maryland. I am still in denial.
