My Political Statement Post (oh just come know you want's Twitterable in length)

Because Gina asked, this is how I am LEANING so far. I still have AMPLE time to change my mind, if I so desire.


Good grief...hard to read.

Okay, some clarification if you need for the bottom line:

Top left quadrant is Social-Liberalism and Economic Left (we aren't shocked are we?) and that's where I apparently fall post robotic quiz. Barack Obama is circled.

But I know you don't want to miss the rest of my bitingly funny humor here, so CLICK HERE to see a better image and catch all the oh-so-witty rejoinders I threw in to my quiz result image.

you know how to entice me: say that it's twitterish in length. i think baracking the vote is cool. (and fun to say)

You know as someone who works in politics I thought I knew where I was and then I visited that site. Not surprisingly the robot was smarter than me.

Very cool! I didn't expect my result.

I like him a lot too, but I fear the "experience" card is getting played too well by Clinton (whose "experience" includes being married to a former president).

In an ideal world, I'd see him take the nomination. Failing that (sadly, likely I think), I'd love to see him as her VP candidate. I figure the US would be set for the next 16 years with that ticket... give Obama 8 years to develop better foreign policy and learn some more, then let him loose in 2016.

SciFi Dad, I cannot tell you how richly ironic I find it that the "experience" card would work. I think too many times too many people accept what is told to them without critically thinking it through. I understand why and am guilty of this myself at times. Still...


Heidi, isn't it funny how sometimes we know what we know but we keep throwing up barriers to that knowledge for a variety of reasons? Sometimes it's good LOL because it makes us think it through. Other times, well...

I just thought the robot quiz was a funny way to pretend to have decided LOL.


Slackermommy, really? So many people were surprised I expected to be too and then I came out exactly as I thought I was. LOL


Mamma, I know, that's the same thing so many said! I was surprised to be just where I thought I was LOL.


Karen, as Liv would say, do you mean that BARACKed? LOL


Liv, I totally thought of you. And Angela. I'm going to liberally (HA!) use BARACK the vote.
Suz said…
Yeah. We come out pretty much the same on this. And the site is wonderful!
le35 said…
NOt being liberal, I came out very differently on the quizes I've taken, but in the end, I truly believe that's the beauty of the good ol' USA. Just go vote. (I don't say that very often when I know it's to people who don't vote like I do, but I'd MUCH rather have Barack Obama for president than Hillary Clinton.) However, I'd rather see Mitt Romney than anyone.

I think everyone should make all their choices with the aid of a robot.


(Glad your robot saw the light. Heh.)

I smell a conspiracy. My little graph looked EXACTLY like yours (well, with less graffiti).
Kat said…
That was so fun! Thanks for the link. I had to do it myself. I'm not surprised by my results, but it was pretty cool.
Magpie said…
I did that the other day - I think my map looked identical to yours. Hi, sister!
Kyla said…
I got Hilary. I've done two other sites, too, and I got Obama (83%) on one and Hilary (93%) on the other. So I think it depends on what issues the site focuses on.

Josh got McCain. This morning I said, "How fun! We can just cancel each other out!" He said, "Does that mean we don't have to vote?" LOL.
Mary Alice said…
My Mama loves Obama and so do I - and so do two of my of which said she would turn cart-wheels all across America if he wins!
Ally said…
This is hilarious. And fun!
Aliki2006 said…
I'm off to give it a try myself!

My Obama 2008 stickers are in the mail...
I may need to try this one. I am at a LOSS right now...and it would probably help to make a decision!

OH...the pressure!

PS: Steph and I talked about you this weekend. We decided you were PURE EVIL for toying with our emotions by saying you were coming! (hee-hee)
flutter said…
you are too funny!
Girlplustwo said…
check you baracking the vote, girl.
HomeGrownLife said…
Loving your marked-up "white board" of the candidates!
I got EXACTLY the same. And I'm don't even vote (over there ;) )
niobe said…
Unfortunately (for purposes of this post, anyway), I was brought up never to discuss politics.
Michele said…
I guess I really do need to take a quiz because I have no idea who to vote for but I loved your graphical depiction. Thanks so much for sharing it with us : )
We're on the same page girl. Plus, your commentary is hilarious!

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Quorum

After being confronted with written evidence, Julie admits that she is a total attention whore. In some things, in some ways, sometimes I look outward for validation of my worth and existence. I admit it. It's my weak spot, my vanity spot . If you say I am clever, comment on a post, offer me an award, mention me on your blog, reply to a comment I left on your blog, or in any way flatter me as a writer...I am hopelessly, slavishly devoted to you. I will probably even add you to my blogroll just so everyone can see the list of all the cool kids who actually like me . The girl, she knows she is vain in this regard , but after much vanity discussion and navel-gazing , she has decided to love herself anyway, as she is (ironically) and will keep searching for (1) internal validation and (2) her first person . Until I reach a better point of self-actualization, though, may I just say that this week you people have been better than prozac and chocolate (together, with a side of whi

In defense of vanity...I think

Do you have one of those issues where you argue with yourself? Where you just aren't sure what you actually think because there are so many messages and opinions on the topic around you? I have more than one like this. However, there is one topic that has been struggling to the top of my mind recently: vanity and perceived vanity. Can vanity be a good thing? Vanity has historically been truly reviled. Vanity is number seven of the Seven Deadly Sins. It's the doppleganger of number seven on the Seven Holy Virtues list: humility. There are many moralistic tales of how vanity makes you evil and brings about a spectacular downfall. Consider the lady who bathed in the blood of virgins to maintain her youth. Google Borgia+vanity and find plenty. The Brothers Grimm and Disney got in on the act too. The Disney message seems to be: the truly beautiful don't need to be vain. They are just naturally eye-catchingly gorgeous. And they are all gorgeous. Show me the Reubenesque Pr

Is your name yours? How your name affects your success...

Made by Andrea Micheloni Not too long ago I read What's in a name? by Veronica Mitchell. She'd read the NPR/USA Today article, Blame it on your name , that shared new research results: "a preference for our own names and initials — the 'name-letter effect' — can have some negative consequences." Veronica's post and that article got me thinking about names, and their importance. Changing to my husband’s name and shedding my maiden name was no love lost for me. By the time we married, I’d have gladly married any other name just for a change. My maiden name was a trial; I was sick of spelling it, pronouncing it, explaining it, and dealing with the thoughtless rude comments about it. My sister and I dreamed and planned for the day we could shed that name. So I wonder, sometimes, whether I adequately considered what a name change would actually mean. Heritage and genealogy matter to me and my maiden name reflected a great deal of familial history. Histo
