Actually, the glass is still half full. The Republican gains were inevitable. Congress changes back and forth constantly and it will swing back again.
Plus, California made significant gains in the election of people who are LGBT friendly. Also, an openly gay man was elected as Mayor of Lexington, Kentucky. And, record gains were made in the elections of open gays and lesbians nationwide. And lastly, the Senate is still controlled by the Democrats.
So it's not really so bad.
Out of the closet and into the streets!
