Even if you don’t like your own personal Democrat, you should still be voting for the Democrats to retain control of Congress.  Why?  The simple numbers are out, and according to the HRC’s new scorecards:

Republican congressional opposition to gay issues, such as repealing “don’t ask, don’t tell,” strengthened over the last two years and will likely continue in the next Congress with more conservative GOP lawmakers being elected. The Human Rights Campaign, the top gay lobby, has issued a score card that graded 32 Republican senators and 139 House members with a zero on gay-issue voting. By comparison, 17 Senate and 91 House Democrats scored 100. Overall, the average score for all 435 House members was 50.8; among the 100 senators, it was 57.3.

Sounds like a no-brainer to me. Follow the above link to see the scorecards for yourselves.

I mean, by all means, if it makes you feel better to Teach Your Democrat A Lesson by handing power to bigots who have also proven their incompetence on most other issues*, knock yourself out, but if you’re a serious voter, those are the cold, hard facts.

*YES, other issues exist!
