I wasn't that surprised that I emerged as a backer of someone perceived, I think, as a moderate.

I am baffled by where this Giuliani stuff is coming from.

Whoever wrote the quiz probably perceives him as a liberal...

He supports Roe v Wade I think; that might be influencing things.

nwhyte's journal directs me towards this dissection of the meme.

There are some interesting dissecions of the dissection in the comments there; I thought it was reasonable amusement for the few minutes it took to take it and it seemed reasonably accurate in its recommendations (as such things go).

serval

For me, it suggested a mormon followed by several Democrats.

Now that doesn't seem right. I mean I'm more right-wing than most people.

Could it be that this is a way of persuading people to vote Demmycrat?

No, just revealing the limitations of the exercise!
