A hint of tint
Inasmuch as it's been hours since I linked to anything of Michelle Malkin's, I commend to you her Media Diversity Test, something she wrote to tweak the Unity Journalists of Color, in convention in the District of Columbia this week.
Out of a possible 100 points, Malkin of course scores an even 100. How would you fare? Give yourself five points for every Yes answer.
1. I have never voted for a Democrat in my life.
2. I think my taxes are too high.
3. I supported Bill Clinton's impeachment.
4. I voted for President Bush in 2000.
5. I am a gun owner.
6. I support school voucher programs.
7. I oppose condom distribution in public schools.
8. I oppose bilingual education.
9. I oppose gay marriage.
10. I want Social Security privatized.
11. I believe racial profiling at airports is common sense.
12. I shop at Wal-Mart.
13. I enjoy talk radio.
14. I am annoyed when news editors substitute the phrase "undocumented person" for "illegal alien."
15. I do not believe the phrase "a chink in the armor" is offensive.
16. I eat meat.
17. I believe O.J. Simpson was guilty.
18. I cheered when I learned that Saddam Hussein had been captured.
19. I cry when I hear "Proud to be an American" by Lee Greenwood.
20. I don't believe the New York Times.
Assuming that in #19 she really means "God Bless the USA", I check in with a 55.

Is the latest meme-like thing. I scored a surprisingly low 85, thanks to the following factors:
I have actually voted for a Democrat. To make matters worse, it was ...[read more]

Hey, it's another political quiz! I usually don't bother with these things, but I felt like writing some answers to the questions featured here, via Michelle Malkin. Here are my answers:
1. I'm afraid I can't say "yes" to that.
3. I ......[read more]
90 for me. I don't cry when I hear the Lee Greenwood song, unless it's the 14th time in an hour.
As for why, therefore, I still didn't manage a 95, well, I'll tell you. Once someone was going off on how Republicans never admit their mistakes, so I replied, "Not true, and to prove it, I'll admit a mistake: I once voted for a Democrat."
90 for me.
You're such a right-wing townhall trash linker.
100 for me :)
90 for me...songs rarely make me cry, and I'm not a gun owner -- I'm having trouble finding a grip that fits my small hand, yet still retains enough stopping power.
Charles, if you don't show up *soon* for your Christmas present (2003); I'll have T-R DELIVER them after work. You'll not only have him in your house (and you know he knows where you live) you'll get to listen to the lously people he dealt with. You want that?
45 for me. But some of the questions are not quite as clear as Malkin thinks they are. Ferinstance, school vouchers will, in my opinion, make private schools like the lousy public schools rather than make public schools competitive. I didn't vote for Bush in 2000 because he's too much of a big-government collectivist. And so on... I think this is more of a 'get 100 points if you think exactly like Michelle Malkin' test.
Well, yeah, it's definitely that. And it skews more conservative than libertarian, as you've noticed.
Still, I'd like to see some scores from members of the putative Evil Liberal Media®, just on general principle.
Seventy points for me.
And I answered NO to the Lee Greenwood song -- although sometimes I do "cry," if by "cry" you mean retch. I mean, I'm just about the biggest flag-loving, patriotic so-and-so you can imagine, but that song is just...just...AWFUL.
BTW, regarding your Christmas-the fruitcake has been eaten. (It was VERY good, too) You'll have to wait until fall now.
Well, I got a 15. How's that for a liberal score?
just 70 for me, but i grew up in Ann Arbor; so, that shows nature wins out over nurture.
I was going to answer here, but then it got too long. Check your trackbacks.
For me, it's an 85 or a 90, depending on how you interpret question 12. I don't shop at Wal-Mart, but I do shop at Target, which is pretty much the same thing.
And I voted in the Democratic primary for Denise Majette a couple of years ago, to oust Castro-loving Cynthia McKinney in the Georgia 4th District race. And I don't cry when I hear "God Bless the USA," but I do get a little patriotic surge.
So yes, all in all I'm another right-wing neo-Nazi.
70 for me. Don't know how I got the name 'Acorns from a Nazi' in the BlameBush! blogroll. Guess I'm just a poseur.
I'm British and I live in Costa Rica, so a lot of the questions are inoperative. But I score 100 in general agreement with the thrust of the questions.
I scored a 95 - I don't shop at wallmart.
