    Check out http://www.dontvote.org

    It's a fun test. I got an A+.

    Just remember your vote counts just as much as those who thing Martin Sheen is president

    Martin Sheen didn't fool me.
    Paris was the easiest.

    I almost missed on Madonna's title, only because they included actress in it. It threw me for a loop as I've seen her in a couple of flicks, and she definitely isn't an actress!:D

    A+ here too. I must admit there were a couple of ones I got through a process of elimination. :eek:

    I got a B with 86.29% correct.

    I got the following wrong:

    3 - Guessed Rush Limbaugh was Howard Dean
    4 - Guessed Howard Dean (who was actually Rush Limbaugh) was Dem. Spokesman.

    13 - Guessed Bill Frist instead of Tony Snow.
    25 - Guessed John Roberts instead of Bill Frist
    37 - Guessed William Rehnquist instead of Dennis Hastert
    54 - Guessed Nancy Pelosi (who I guessed correctly) was a supreme court judge instead of minority leader of the house of reps.

    Not too bad for an Aussie who know pbfa about US politics. :)

    I got a D, but that's ok, I can't vote anyway.
    Their test is a sham anyway. They say the people who shouldn't vote are those who are not educated on the issues, but their test has nothing to do with the issues. All they do is ask you to identify random politicians and actors, most of whom you can't vote for anyway.

    I only missed Ban Ki-moon and Rush Limbaugh. Ban Ki-moon I honestly didn't know who he was, but with Rush Limbaugh, I didn't know that's what he looked like... I knew it wasn't Bill Gates of Howard Dean, so I guessed between the two left.

    I also got an A+, but I will admit that I guessed on the Ban Ki-Moon guy. Never heard of him before this "test".

    I got an "A" because I didn't have a clue who Nancy Pelosi was. But for me being a 15 year old and not being able to vote, I think that was pretty good. Anybody else agree?

    I got a C+. I got the politicians, but 9 out of the 30 were actors. I had no idea who the actors were.

    "A" for me as well, a good thing too, because I plan on voting the Republicans out of office. :D :)


    Same here, the only questions that I got wrong were on the actors. :rolleyes:

    Sounds like we have the same problem. C+ here too, I'm terrible when it comes to knowing actors.

    Points were pro-rated. Actors were worth less than politicians. Paris, et al were 1 point each. Condi was 7 or 8.

    I used process of elimination on a few of them as well. I could generally match names with titles which helped.

    I got them all right but one. I guessed on the Japanese guy and knew all the others. I got Paris Hilton's title wrong because skank-ho was not a choice. I refuse to identify her as an actress-musician.
