But Whose Hair Has More Lift, Edwards’ or Hillary’s?

After that despicable post, a moment of sobriety: the Human Rights Campaign has released its scorecard of where the eight democratic candidates stand on gay issues. This is a must-read for gays this year. While you may not be a one-issue voter, it’s really important to know what you’re supporting.

While all candidates support equal rights and benefits for committed same-sex couples, that does not actually include full marriage. Only Dennis Kucinich and Gonzo Gravel go balls deep on that front. All of them, however, are against “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”

It’s not the results we’d want, but it’s certainly a big step. We’d focus on it more, but we’re still reeling from the fact that HRC actually did something useful for once.
