How to tell if you are a right-wing wacko.....
... You think same-sex marriage is a greater threat to the United

... You see nothing ironic about worshipping a large granite statue
of the ten commandments.

End Times can begin.
... You favor genetically modified food but are against stem cell
... You vote on the same side as Iran and Libya at the UN...when
the vote is about reproductive rights.
... You think it is OK for the government to tell people how to
have sex and how to pray, as long as they tell people to do both
those things the way you do them.
... You appreciate Ted Nugent's music without any sense of irony.

because he took up arms against the United States but you think
Oliver North is a hero because he sold arms to the enemies of the
... You consider gays, blacks, and whatnot organizing politically

Baptists do the same thing that they are just being patriotic
How to tell if you are a leftist idiotarian...

at Guitanamo Bay but could care less about real political prisoners
in places like Iran.
... You think the occupation of the West Bank by Israel is a
terrible tragedy, but support the fraternal assistance of Syrian
troops in Lebanon.
... You compare the President to a chimpanzee, and then
participate in a chimpanzee "rescue" at your local research lab,
and do not see the irony!
... You think the Weekly Standard is ultra-right-wing but the
Nation is middle of the road.
... You are against same-sex marriage...because marriage is an evil
... You have no problem with racism, hatred, homophobia, and
misogyny, as long as these are practiced by non-Western cultures.
... You believe that automatically being against any military action
by America is a mark of your moral superiority.
... You voted for Ralph Nader, ever.
... You generally despise law enforcement, except when acts of
terrorism occur, when you then say that they should be treated as
crimes and investigated by law enforcement as opposed to being
retaliated against with the military.
... You put the word terrorism in "quotes" when writing.
