having trouble selecting a candidate?

A TV station in Moline, Illinois, offers this interesting feature. Just answer a few basic questions, and it will match your opinions with those of the major candidates for next year's election. You are not asked to give your name.

Whew! Thank God that took a load off my mind. Now I know who to vote for so I will turn my attention once again to finding a cure for cancer and solving the Kennedy assassination...After that come up with a way to get rid of all the UFOs..

cancer is treated by diet coke, kennedy is living in china under an assumed name, and the UFOs will go away if you just put on the tinfoil hat the voices keep telling you to wear.

I feel obligated now...

Ok here's the deal... Until the Dems select a candidate that doesn't suck my hairy butthole, they will never get my vote. Not especially impressed with some of the Rep choices, though a couple have caught my interest. Dems just seem really out of touch with what I consider important and/or correct... Which sucks, because Dem's are the 'feel good' choice... unfortunatly more taxes, bigger government, and less personal accountability do not make me feel good.

I have a bunch of no names at the top of my list. Barack is my lowest and Hilary is 1 point above him. Guiliani is my highest big name candidate.

I was a McCain guy. Not that the elected will have any choice but to do exactly what his(or her) campaign supporters have purchased him for, $$$$$
