A rather meaningless political meme

1. Which political party do you typically agree with?
I'm a registered Republican, though not always proud of the party.

2. Which political party do you typically vote for?

Again, I'm a Republican, but I'm not above splitting the ticket.

3. List the last five presidents that you voted for?

If I count primaries I think I can get all 5.

2000-GW Bush
2000 GOP Primary-John McCain
1996-Bob Dole
1992-Bil Clinton
1992 Primary- Paul Tsongas

4. Which party do you think is smarter about the economy?
Traditionally this is the GOP, but not recently.

5. Which party do you think is smarter about domestic affairs?

Ugh.. my party's kowtowing to the religous right shows here. I'd have to say neither.

6. Do you think we should keep our troops in Iraq or pull them out?
Keep them in, and increase their number if you can. I supported the way, though I'm increasingly disgusted with the way its been run. I'm also a firm supporter of "You Broke It, You Bought It"

7. Who, or what country, do you think is most responsible for 9/11?
Osama of course.

8. Do you think we will find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq?
Sure doesn't look like it now. That doesn't mean Saddam didn't want them, or that they didn't exist. They still could have been smuggled to Syria before the war.

9. Yes or no, should the U.S. legalize marijuana?
Yes, in fact we should legalize most drugs. People don't need the government protecting them from themselves.

10. Do you think the republicans stole the last presidential election?


11. Do you think bill Clinton should have been impeached because of what he did with Monica Lewinski?
No, it was a charade that the right should be ashamed of.

12. Do you think Hillary Clinton would make a good president?

Who the hell knows. the junior senator from New York has been pretty bland so far, beyond her name recognition.

13. Name a current democrat who would make a great president:
This is pretty slim. The Dems bench is really thin right now, which is why we're stuck with John Kerry, and why Hillary is a near-lock for 2008. Of the remaining, I like Jennifer Granholm of Michigan, but she was born in Canada, so she can't run. Maybe Leiberman, though he ran a completely feckless campaign.

14. Name a current republican who would make a great president:

John McCain and Rudy Guliani. Neither may get the chance, as the far-right doesn't like either.

15. Do you think that women should have the right to have an abortion?

Yes, I do.

16. What religion are you?
Non-affiliated Christian.

17. Have you read the Bible all the way through?
No. Am I going to hell now?

18. What’s your favorite book?

Ball Four

19. Who is your favorite band?
Current ones? Counting Crows. All-Time? The Beatles.

20. Who do you think you'll vote for president in the next election?

Ugh. I don't particulary like either, but it may come down to the evil (or incompetent) you know over that you don't.

21. What website did you see this on first?
Big Stupid Tommy
