Stuck in the middle with you

I took Slate's online quiz that's intended to tell you whether you're a "red-stater" (more inclined to vote Republican, as the colors are usually used on TV news election maps) or a "blue-stater" (more inclined to vote Democratic).

Like most of these gimmicks, it's fairly easy to tell which answers will tilt the scale in which direction, so I don't know that this quiz accurately measures what it purports. (I shouldn't get tarred with the Republican brush just because I know which is the Eighth Commandment, or that Sam's Club is a Wal-Mart subsidiary -- I know plenty of stuff that has nothing to do with my political views. I'm an infomaniac.) But I answered every question honestly just to see how the result would fall.

Where did I land? Almost dead center. No surprise. Proving once again that when it comes to politics, I'm a man without a constituency.
