Del. David Moon Touches the Third Rail of Maryland Politics

Delegate David Moon (D-20) may have done his political career irreparable harm and further cemented Takoma Park’s reputation as a very strange corner of Maryland when he tweeted the following joke the day before Thanksgiving:

We joke about lots of things in Maryland. Crab cakes and Old Bay aren’t among them. I won’t even eat “Maryland” crab cakes outside of the Old Line State because they are just a sad, pale shadow and about as real as Trump’s skin color.

Reaction has been swift:

If we don’t have an official state seasoning, someone needs to get on this ASAP. When politicians attack our core values, we need to take action. Or is this one of the terrible consequence of same-sex marriage that have finally come home to roost?
