Another reason why the Curmudgeon doesn't do politics -- or Blogthings

But just this one time I weakened. I saw one of those "Blogthing" quizzes at Star8278's blog about "Which Muppet Are You?" And I love the Muppets.

Star says she saw the quiz at Skittles' Place. The last Blogthing I saw over there was something about "What Kind of Soul Are You?" But maybe I missed it. And I've gotten in trouble answering these on Barb's blog before. But, as I said, I really like the Muppets... so I took the test... and I was Kermit.


While taking the test, another Blogthing caught my eye. The title? "What Kind of Democrat Are You?" Just for fun I took the test:

You Are 12% Democrat

If you have anything in common with the Democrat party, it's by sheer chance.
You're a staunch conservative, and nothing is going to change that!

Ah, just as you'd expect, you say: Curmudgeon is nothing but a knuckle-dragging, Neanderthal reactionary. (Not, mind you, what I'd expect... but I've been called this and similar names.)

And in taking the test, I saw that an "equal time" test was offered: "How Republican Are You?" I took that test, too. Herewith those results:

You Are 16% Republican

If you have anything in common with the Republican party, it's by sheer chance.
You're a staunch liberal, and nothing is going to change that!

Ah ha! According to this, if I'm not actually a Commie Pinko subversive I'm probably a Fellow Traveller -- or at least a quiche-eating, card-carrying member of the ACLU.


Someone's confused here and I know it's not me. I think it's Blogthings... and both political parties.

Skittle's was Kermit too! Alas, see what I started. I am sure there must be a disclaimer on the Blogthings, something like "these are in no way, at all, whatsoever even remotely accurate; but heck while here, why not try another one."

Yeah.. but you wriggled your way out of the underwear quiz ;)
