Dude, you have got to be kidding me with those Obama questions.

I actually did the McCain quiz in its entirety first. Then when I moved onto the Obama one I wasn't five questions in before I was laughing at the questions. I thought it was a joke. I actually thought it was one of those pages where they try to make it look like an actual legit site when it's not. Are they serious with those ****ing questions? What kind of shoes did he wear? What was the meaning of the Indonesian word he used to tease his friends with in elementary school?

Um, who cares?


Nothing personal, DB. I'm not trying to bash your post. I'm sure you made it just out of fun and in the interest of us checking how much we know - which is, actually, a really good idea. I'd just like to see it tried with some higher quality quizzes. Some of the McCain questions are pretty obscure, too. Like what even his grandfather witnessed, for example.

Wow those McCain ones and Obama ones are hard. And like DB said, sometimes irrelevant. You already mentioned the Obama ones, but who cares how many packs of cigs McCain smoked?

couldn't agree more. And like the gun question for McCain. Can we nitpick those details a little more? :laugh2: I mean, I made my guess (which was wrong) based on my understanding - which I believe is correct - that McCain is pretty damn pro-gun. That's really the quiz I'd like to see. One quiz, issue based, for both candidates, lined up like this:


Issue McCain Obama

1. Supports increased
funding for inner city
schools. T/F T/F


2. Supports the full
reinstatement of habeas
corpus. T/F T/F


3. Supports a health
care plan which accounts
for people with pre-
existing condtions. T/F T/F


4. etc.


Nuts and bolts type stuff. Doesn't even need to be too detailed, just address a good number of significant issues.

Who wrote these questions? The responses just make the candidates look like morons. But anyway:

McCain 70%
Obama 65%
