good cheer

The elegant Ms. Place offers a diagnostic test to determine what brand of liberal you might be. Lest any noses are rising at the term "liberal," remember that liberal means, among other things, "of or pertaining to representational forms of government rather than aristocracies and monarchies" and, I might add, dictatorships. Liberals are also "free from prejudice or bigotry," and "favorable to progress and reform."

I took it twice, once before lunch, for which I was diagnosed a Peace Patroller, and the second after a fine meal and a brief review of the day's news, which apparently turned me into a NewLeft Hipster.

So how about it? What brand are you? Check out Ms. Place's test and come back and tell.

Eco-Avenger, baby. The choice to come back and shoot a tranquilizer dart at Howard Dean was just.too.much. I am still laughing.

Eco-avenger and god help you if you don't start using those recycle bins as a start! And those big business bastards better beware (how's that for aliteration?) once I figure out how the hell to get into this really tight green spandex eco-avenger suit. Wait a minute green is not my colour and isn't spandex a synthetic? Okay better rethink this one.

I'm a Peace Patroller as well, and in mighty good company.

My being a reality-based intellectualist is pretty funny. I shoot from the hip and mouth without much thought. However, I think I might try Lynnette's technique of taking the test again. I'll wait until I've had a glass of wine! Hah!

I'm a reality-based intellectualist - which is actually pretty much right. I think the bumper sticker question was my favorite.

Also a reality-based intellectualist, which doesn't surprise me at all

OK, I now can see why you took it again, and how you got different scores. The bumper sticker question alone had me stumped for 5 minutes. Come on, people, where the hell are the "All Of The Above" answers?

My score: You are a Working Class Warrior, also known as a blue-collar Democrat. You believe that the little guy is getting screwed by conservative greed-mongers and corporate criminals, and you’re not going to take it anymore.

However, I'm sure I could easily score 3 different ways to sunday, b/c I don't remember any answers taht I didn't agree with.

Reality based intellectualist. It was the option for making Ann Colt-face, Pat Puke-anan and Rush Limburger form a naked human pyramid that probably pushed me over the top.

Yup, that's me dahling. Actually, I think you get that label if you don't choose a single religious or anti-religious answer. An "all of the above," or "pick your favorite three" would have suited me better. After a bottle of wine, I'm as rabble rousing as they come. :)
