Father with the Ben Shahn drawings, and the really, y'know, strike-oriented kind of, red diaper, stop me before I make a complete imbecile of myself.

Andrew Sullivan linked to this political questionnaire yesterday. It's dated (from about 10 years ago), but most of the questions still broadly apply. It tells you where you fall on the liberal-conservative spectrum, from 0-40, and it provides a handy guide for interpreting your score, from Ronald Reagan at 40 (yikes) to Jesse Jackson at 0 (double yikes). I scored a 19, which marks me as pretty centrist, I guess.

This doesn't answer my burning question, though, which is where I stand relative to Jack Kemp on the haircut spectrum:

Feel free to share your score, or just round up or down and tell us your closest Love Connection on their chart.

I scored a 21, which is about where I thought I'd be.

i'm also a (political) 10, but it was painful. the question whether i have more trust in a union leader or a business executive made me want to crawl under my desk and hide.

Apparently I'm an 8, which makes me the most liberal of all your commenters thus far. Abortions, pornography and gay marriage anyone?

I'm in favor of porn.

Despite agreeing with Mrs. White on pornography and gay marriage (I'm fine with abortions, but I don't want the government to pay for everyone's), I got a 23. Which is actually lower than I thought it would be.

And the pro athletes vs. team owners question? What the hell? Wayne Huizenga or Terrell Owens? I actually took about 30 seconds thinking about that one.
