Taking a steer from American Athens, I just took a fun quiz on the site of the new snooker-the-yokels tome Applebee’s America. They try to peg your political habits by your consumer habits. Sounds plausible, right? Admit it: You’re probably sucking down your third latte of the day while poking at your sushi while reading this.
Here’s the kind of question they ask:
Which special event would you be more inclined to attend?
* Monster Truck Show
* Pro Wrestling Match
And remember, death is not an option.
So … what did it tell this die-hard liberal, recovering Nader-voter, ex-ponytail-wearing, Iraq-war-protesting-back-in-2002, artist-type lefty-blogger?
Well there it is. Maybe if I’d favored pro wrestling, I’d be a Dem? (I’ll bet Travaglini loves him some rasslin’.)
There’s a sucker born every minute, and some of them run for office. Caveat lector for “Applebee’s America.”
