meme: I am a True Neutral Human Sorcerer/Rogue

I did this for fun because BGwScott did it, and I was all aflutter after getting my Internet back after 4 days of it being dead. But then I got email from Manuel, one of my old high school buddies who I played D&D with a few times, commenting about our continued interest in games (though the interests don’t include D&D anymore). So, here’s the meme:

Select a Candidate

A few days ago I was listening to a podcast while biking through Memorial Park all the way to the West Loop and in an extended PBS interview with Mike Gravel I was struck by how much I liked him (and of course how he had no chance in hell of being taken seriously, much less elected).

So, I was not surprised when he ended up at the top of the list after a short quiz on political views. There was also a perfect stratification of Dems at the Top and Reps at the bottom, with Ron Paul being the highest (R). It would have been interesting to have some 3rd party candidates in there, but with over a year until the election they’re not stupid enough to have any candidates yet (much less 10).
