  • Play the Candidate Match Game

       January 09, 2008

    Since so many republicans are having a hard time figuring out which candidate to to support, I thought that a few quizzes may be of help.

    Here's one at USA Today

    Here's on that seems to answer "Ron Paul," "Dennis Kucinich," or "Mike Gravel" for most every set of answers.*

    Here's one that makes you first assign weights to issues.**

    Here's one that grossly oversimplifies things.***

    From what I can tell, I should vote for Ron Paul or Mike Gravel or Dennis Kucinich or Hillary or Obama or Fred or Huckabee. Clear as mud, huh?

    I think that the best approach for me is going to be one similar to Vote For The Worst's American Idol strategy - I am going to vote for the most entertaining candidate, regardless of his or her political positions. So listen up, candidates - if you want my vote, now would be a good time to start giving debate responses in song, becoming frequently forgetful of your present location, running away from local fauna, dressing up in funny outfits, or just falling down a lot.

    Or anything else you think may win my fancy. Use your imagination.****

    * I tried twice.
    ** Which doesn't work for me, because I care about everything at about the same level: meh.
    *** Exactly like the others don't.
    **** Extra points if you say the word "penis"

    Cool- I got Romney in the USA Today game and Hunter in the 2nd one. Well, cool that it worked, not cool that I got Romney & Hunter.

    Maybe I'll just write myself in, although I'd rather be write-in candidate for the House because I seriously think I could get 10-20 votes.
