My morning feel-good shot came during the Good Morning America show today, as the show explored various websites where one can find candidate viewpoint-explanations and even take quizes to see which candidate you are most like for the upcoming '08 Presidential race. (Click on the video "Political Identity Crisis")
Their own Match-O-Matic test runs on two self-described "liberal" young women matched them to all GOP candidates. HA!
Here's to being able to tell a liberal they're not as crazy as they thought!
Now, on second thought, do we give props to the ladies for answering those questions honestly, risking a non-match? Or do we question their intelligence and political awareness for not knowing what their own candidates ("Hillary supporter!") actually stand for?
I fear this only represents a larger public in a political identity crisis- perhaps not really sticking to their own beliefs, but swayed by today's media and a need to be politically correct in their voting habits. But then again you can take a test or answer a survey any way you want and then vote inside the private booth the complete opposite way- be it politically INcorrect, racist, sexist, you name it.
It's too much to digest, honestly. I'll just enjoy that two liberal voters got a wake up call today!
