    I am in Roscoe's district and he is worthless.  I wish the DCCC luck because there are a LOT of rethugs in my area and I dont think a dem can win...

    •  it's a bizarre district (5+ / 0-)

      as are all the districts in Maryland (thanks, Parris) and it's made to catch as many Republicans as possible; but we took the first district, and who'da thunk that?

      'Course, it'd be really hard for the Republicans/Club for Destruction to primary Bartlett like they did Gilchrest, but find enough global warming deniers and they just might pull it off. The one thing Bartlett has going for him from the progressive side is his support for alternative energy. Now, the fact that he has a personal financial interest in developing alternative just might have a little to do with that.

        He's a true believer in Peak Oil, his financial stake in the matter really is secondary.

        While Frederick County swung blue (big time) in 2008, most of the rest of the district got even redder.  You could draw a more competitive 6th, but I think the priority will be drawing a safer 1st, while preserving the dem-lean of the 2nd and 3rd.  Maybe the 2nd and 3rd could even end up with more sane boundaries than the current Parrismander.
