My rating was “sick and twisted”

My ex-wife said the same thing. Take the test and see how you score.

    Romney campaign is using Obama 2008 tactics against the One. This would indicate that the best little campaign in the history of the world circa 2008 thought no one would dare use those tactics on them (too bigoted), they never got to step two to figure out how to counter them, and they thought their propaganda on how personally liked and popular a marketed fad prezzy would keep him insulated from attacks. Their group think has guaranteed the downfall of the Democratic Party and it couldn’t happen to a bigger bunch of liars, cheats and thieves. I am surprised at how fast it all has snowballed and how quickly so many are turning on him. The fear factor is gone. The pile on has begun.

      Yep. Mitt’s even willing to play extreme offense with constituencies, just like Obama was in 2008. I hope it serves his as well.

    I took that test and the questions were fun, but I didn’t really understand the score.

      • myiq2xu says:

        BTW – Did your score mention anything about recording your IP and calling the police?

      • votermom says:

        Across many kinds of surveys, in the UK as well as in the USA, we find that people who self-identify as being on the left score higher on questions about care/harm. For example, how much would someone have to pay you to kick a dog in the head?

        I picked “not for any amount of money” that question although I also said I would shoot an endangered species animal for a million bucks.

        In fact all my answers were either “not for any money” or “$1 million” except for the “throw a rotten tomato at a disliked politician” which I was willing to go down to $100k.

        My results showed me with higher bars than either typical lib or typical con.

        It’s a fairly good article, and at least better than the usual “conservatives are stooopid” crap. But he still slides somewhat into a common fallacy of conflation.

        These two statements are not equal:

        1) I do not think the federal govt should do X

        2) I do not think X should or needs to be done

        Conservatives (and libertarians) tend not to view “society” and “the government” as being almost interchangable terms. Liberals almost always do. When a conservative makes the statement “People should”, or “We as a society ought to…” he is not necessarily thinking “govt should make it so.” Sometimes he is, but not that frequently.

        In contrast, when a leftist is saying “we as a society should…” he is almost invariably saying “the govt should encourage/make/force people to do this.”

        That fundamental difference in view of the world, and what “society” is, is the cause of a lot of the hair-on-fire accusations of “not caring”. Caring is wonderful. But is govt the only, or even the primary, vehicle to accomplish that? My own views fall somewhere in the middle on that question – depending on the topic. But I understand conservatives well enough to know that their disagreements with me re: whether govt is the best tool in instance X are about the tool, not about X. I.e. opposing Bloomberg’s Big Gulp ban is not the same as saying “I think it’s great and a good idea for people to weigh 400 lbs”.

          Speaking of Hizzoner’s War on Soda:

          A little research on the intertubez has revealed that both a Long Island Iced Tea and a margarita have over twice as many calories as a McDonalds Supersize Coke.

          Obviously, what the mayor should do is ban cocktails – after all, Prohibition was such a raging success *last* time.

    During the Q&A session, I asked the panelists if they felt abandoned by Obama during the recall fight. Obama had neglected to visit Wisconsin, instead tweeting out a last-minute endorsement of Barrett –despite being just a few miles away in Chicago in the last days of the campaign.

    I asked, “Why did Obama abandon you, or do you feel Obama abandoned you, by not showing up [in Wisconsin]?”

    Emily Mills responded that she didn’t feel abandoned at all:

    I don’t. Me personally, I don’t feel that it was an abandonment. It was a choice of a national democratic party and that campaign and I have no idea why this maybe wasn’t a priority or not. There were people in Wisconsin who expressed real frustration and being upset with that. I honestly think if he had showed up it would have played right into a certain narrative, and not necessarily have been helpful.

    Kaili Lambe went even further, saying “I think some of that disappointment was manufactured as well. I didn’t talk to a single person on the ground who was actually upset about it.”

    At which point, audience member Lisa Graves, standing in line behind me, abruptly cuts in:

    I disagree. It wasn’t manufactured. The fact that Obama tweeted the day before the election his support of Barrett was an insult. Quite frankly took many people who were out there fighting to get the vote out. And quite frankly, we covered it through PR, we covered extensively what was happening on the ground. And the apologist sort of approach that’s being taken by some, and the blaming labor when they knocked on doors to get people out, it’s sort of astonishing Monday-morning quarterbacking quite frankly.

    And now for a moment of OMG HOW ADORABLE IS THAT?

  5. HELENK says:

    this is the first time I have ever read that it was not the US forces that caused this.

  6. DandyTiger says:

    Ha, my bars were lower than both red and blue bars for every category. I am truly dispicable. Well, I am a pirate after all. What did you expect.

    • DandyTiger says:

      Funnily because I will indeed do anything for money (didn’t answer any questions that I wouldn’t), they actually said it’s so unusual that I’ve likely taken that test before. LOL. No, I’m a pirate dammit.

    • leslie says:

      I must’ve taken the wrong test. There was no mention of money! I can tell you my answers would have been very different. And I, too, scored higher on nearly all counts than libs and cons. who knows what that means?
