What's Your Tribe?

Sorry to do this to you people, but apparently, I’m a Republican, so all y’all are going to have to leave.  Via Carpetbagger, I just took the Applebees America’s What’s Your Tribe Quiz, and scored a 10 out of 12 in regards to being in the Red State tribe.  And while that doesn’t match the formerly liberal Carpetbagger’s score of 11, it still means I’m going to have to toss-out the homoerotic terror porn and Ted Kennedy blow-up dolls; and all because I prefer Audi over Saab, Dr. Pepper over Pepsi, and the Discovery Channel over Court TV.  Who’d have guessed?

Frankly, none of those are my top preferences, but who the hell am I to second-guess the geniuses who can determine our political leanings based upon twelve inane questions?  If it was up to me, I’d have just asked people what side they lean to and take their word for it.  Such a fool.

Henceforth, I’ll be paraphrasing Little Green Footballs for awhile and slamming my head into walls, just until I get my rightwing bearings.  And who knows, maybe you can take the quiz and find out that you belong at the new blog too.  All hail the emperor, and don’t forget to screw someone over.

Man, that's the saddest litlle test I've ever seen. It's ridiculous. The worst part is (and it's really hard to choose, since there's a veritable smorgasbord of awfulness) that it gives only 2 choices for each question. Monster truck show or pro wrestling? What the hell? There's no choice for "neither". And that wouldn't really be a problem other than that "neither" would be my choice every time. Same for Coors or Budweiser. If I have to choose between 2 shitty, skank-ass beers, I'll go for "neither" again, every time. And I don't drink soda; I hate the stuff. But I can't forgo the nasty syrupy gunk in this test, since, and maybe I haven't made this clear yet, but there's no choice for "neither".
It's just some pinhead's idea of what liberals and consevatives are like. Ahh, well, I guess it's not worth getting all bent out of shape over, but profoundly brainless things just grate on me.

I got a 9. Good thing my college Young Socialist friends never figured out I'm redder than Hank Hill.

I scored an 8, which is still far too high on that scale. I agree with Bibblesnæð... I don't drink beer, so "neither" would have been an appropriate choice, don't care for sports, so football or soccer aren't good choices, nor are the options of monster trucks or wrestling... plus half the other questions I forgot.

I got 7. The lousy Independent! Not that I cared for any of the choices...
