Wheeee! Politics just got easy!

Boing Boing posted a link this week to a chart of 2008 presidential candidates' stances on various issues. Bah. It is too early for that nonsense and chaaaaarts are so haaaaaard to reeeeeead.

What's that? There's an online quiz? Well, why didn't you say so?

My top 3, apparently:

  1. Kucinich - 28 points
    Once again, Kucinich comes in at the top. He will never ever win, but he keeps trying. You go, little gnome! I voted for him in the Michigan Democratic primary three and a half years ago. Yes, it was a throwaway vote (If I remember correctly, Kucinich came in dead last in Michigan. I think Al Sharpton had twice as many votes as him) but I didn't like any of the others any better. Anyway, he's not going to win this time. In fact, he doesn't even exist.
  2. Gravel - 25 points
    I've never heard of Gravel. My extensive research tells me he's from Alaska. Unfortunately my vast knowledge of Alaskan senators prejudices me against him. Why are there so many candidates in this stupid race?
  3. Obama - 22 points
    Meh. Wake me up in about six months to learn what the heck the voting process is in this state. I'll have a mint julep and do some research then.

Hurrah for political apathy. Zzzzzzz.

I got the same results as you...which makes sense since we have the name.

If everyone named Sarah voted for the same person, I bet we could make a big difference in election results!

I just took the on-line quiz and the candidate that best represented my views was Kucinich as well. After being such a staunch Republican this seemed surprising to me. I just signed up for his campaign. Go figure.

Maybe everyone gets Kucinich. Maybe the quiz is sponsored by the Kucinich campaign.
