Well, it turns out that the me-First State has been at it for centuries. Ever wonder how Delaware got its odd shape and curved northern border?
In 1682, Delaware secured a land grant so that all land within 12 miles of the New Castle Court House became property of the state. This includes the arc into Pennsylvania and also means that the state owns the Delaware River within the 12 mile radius, right up to the banks of New Jersey.
In 2007, Delaware blocked New Jersey developers from building a dock because anything extending from Jersey's banks was Delaware property.
In 2010, the me-First State again went rogue and its Republican primary voters nominated former witch Christine O'Donnell over former Gov. and nine term-Rep. Mike Castle.
Thanks for everything, Delaware. Wayne Campbell said it best when he joked, "Imagine, being able to be magically whisked away to ... Delaware."
