This makes me sad

I took a quiz to see how my stances were in regards to candidates. The results were as disappointing as I assumed they would be. It is a bit outdated considering most of these guys are out of the running (and it didn’t even have Fred Thompson). They key though, is how incredibly different my stances are to virtually every single Democrat.

Even the worse Republican (Guiliani) was 17 points ahead of the next Democrat. It amazing that we can disagree so universally. I suppose the real concern arises when I consider that one of the candidates I object to the most (Obama -35) looks like he will win, while one of the Republican candidates I agree with the least (McCain 17) is the one that looks like he’ll have to stop him. It looks like Tom Tancredo and Duncan Hunter were the guys I should have been rooting for. I still think Giuliani had a better chance than most those guys of winning, but it looks like I’ll just have to bury my head in the sand for a few years or something. Anyway, here’s my results:
