Who's the Wingnut Now?

A couple of weeks ago I posted the Club for Growth ratings of the Massachusetts congressional delegation. Well, now the American Conservative Union's ratings are out. ACU uses a wider range of votes, including building a border fence, stem-cell research, gay marriage, and of course taxes and business regulation.

Capuano had the highest (most conservative) rating from Club for Growth, which cares only about tax and business regulation. Not surprisingly, with the social issues added, ACU has Lynch on top.

As with Club for Growth, the scale is 0 to 100, where 100 earns an ACU "Best and Brightest" rating, and 0 is, well, Ted Kennedy.

Lynch       20
Delahunt   12
Frank       12
Kerry       12
Capuano   8
Tierney       8
Markey       4
McGovern   4
Neal       4
Olver       4
Kennedy   0
Meehan   0
