You can take a 40 question quiz in which you rate policy issues on a ten-point scale to gauge your depth of feeling. archy put his score in comments. I'll do it in white, so you can highlight the post if you want to see just how liberal I am....
295 out of 400
Heh. It surprises me not at all to find out that I'm 327 out of 400.
Hey - I'm a wingnut!
Actually, if you read the comments over at Archy, you're pretty middle-of-the-road for that crew. I'm practically a Republican in their eyes.... (not really; they're nice about it, but I did score about forty points lower than any of them).
There's a circularity to the test that bugs me: their assumption that the current policy positions held by one party's elected officials indicate a consistent worldview in one direction.....
I noticed the circularity, but I told myself to let it pass. The entire political landscape in this country seems to be reinventing itself these days.
I almost always have issues with the way issues are grouped in these kinds of polls, anyhow.
I don't need to take a 40 question quiz to know I'm a liberal. I just need to count how many of my idiot ditto-head colleagues I can piss off in a week just by opening my sweet little mouth in the hallway between classes.
And I get entertained at the same time!
