    I’m all for recognizing the achievements of my fellow gays, but must he be referred to as a gay statistician?
    How about renowned statistician? Just seems like an odd way to refer to someone’s sexuality. Gay doesn’t need to modify every facet of a gay persons life. To me that’s equality.

    It doesn’t really matter who wins the Senate.

    The US is not a democracy by any stretch of the imagination. Our absurd 2 party system is utterly worthless. Both parties represent corporations. Not the public.

    “The US is not a democracy by any stretch of the imagination.”

    Of course it’s not. The U.S. is a republic.

    I see your hysteria is matched by your fatuity.

    Hmm, I thought it would have been a higher percentage actually. The Koch Bros are doing an effective job poisoning people on the Affordable Care Act. People love to vote against their own interests.

    People have NEVER voted for their senator based upon what they want to happen at the Supreme Court. The average person just isn’t smart enough to connect those dots.

    if the democratic party could turn out the vote in 2012 by appealing to outrage over voter suppression laws, there’s no reason they can’t expend a little effort and get out the black and hispanic vote for the midterms. the ball is in their court.

    The democrats will use this threat to fund-raise. They are working to turn out their base in mid-term which was their usual problem like in 2010. It is just 60%, not like the 99% that Mitt will lose.

    Keep pushing gun control, amnesty, and mass immigration, Democrats. It’s working out so well. Oh, and keep demonizing white middle class voters… that’s the recipe for a sure win. Yay team!

    Don’t sit this one out, people. Do whatever you have to do to get your friends/neighbors to the polls. Don’t let this happen. We’ve made too much progress to be set back now, however temporary. Please VOTE!

    If the Democrats did ANYTHING that actually helped average Americans (like raising the minimum wage while they could or actual health care reform instead of the Frankenstein of a bill that Obamacare turned out to be) they would stand a chance at permanent majorities in the House and Senate.

    HOWEVER, they are too deep into the pockets of lobbyists and special interests, just like the GOP but only slightly different. Despite the propaganda (‘Get Covered’ and similar nonsense), people are still going to be resistant to purchase insurance from a still unregulated industry, at least when it comes to cost.

    Sure they have a chance to win.

    But the TEa PArty will knock out the folks who could have won in the primaries and then lose in the General most likely.

    It probably won’t matter much which party will control the senate. ENDA will not pass in the near future. The marriage equality fights are now all happening in courts.

    Democrats pushed through Obamacare and people really, really hate it. Add in Obama’s anti-civil liberties agenda, his drone assassinations, his massive deportations of immigrants, his Justice Department raiding medical marijuana centers, his continuing Bush administration stupidity in general and a lot of voters will vote against the Democrats because they are sick of Obama’s policies. Obama has done the sort of harm to the Democrats that Bush the Less had done to Republicans.
