Md. voters aren't that mad

May 20, 2010

You ask the question in your editorial "Muddled tea leaves" (May 20): "Voters are mad at incumbents, but how will it translate to Maryland?" Answer; almost zero influence because the Maryland voters are not mad as hell.

With unemployment statistics more than 2 percent below the national 9.9 percent average, the solid control by the Democratic Party in all branches of state and most local governments, and the inept Republican/independent parties unable to present candidates that can light a fire under the electorate with solid programs to challenge the incumbents, there will be no Massachusetts/Virginia/New Jersey/Pennsylvania miracle in Maryland come November 2010. Maryland state and federal incumbents are safe.
