In the middle of the road,
Is my private cul de sac.
I can't get from the cab to the curb,
Without some little jerk on my back,
Don't harass me kid,
Can't you tell I'm going home, I'm tired as hell,
I'm not the cat I used to be,
I've got a kid, I'm thirty-three baby.
Get in the road.
Come on now,
In the middle of the road.

I took this quiz again and was not surprised at my results, not only because I know I'm pretty liberal but also because I think you'd have to work really hard to get a "middle of the road" chart. I mean, there are no middle of the road questions.

To me, the questions lie on both ends of the extreme, for example:

I think that people who steal bubblegum should be tied to a bee hive, have their eyes stabbed out with an icepick, and their fingers cut off to prevent this unrepentent person, who can never be rehabilitated, from ever menacing society again.

Or:

I think we are all happy butterflies and are free and loved and everyone deserves love and compassion and lollipops.

I mean seriously, what issues did you pick as completely "left and under" that balanced out your extremely "right and over" responses to land so nicely in the middle?

Well Shawnee, I answered as honestly as I could both times. I guess it's possible.

You know my penchant for hyperbole, dar.

There are, of course, differences in agreeing or strongly agreeing. Using my examples, one could think "well, we're not all happy butterflies. Some of us are moths, but the really pretty moths like a Gypsy moth maybe. So I'll answer just 'disagree.'"

I've landed pretty close to the center every time I've taken it. I answered each question with the same views I express in pretty much political thread around here.
