Presidential Pop Culture Quiz =) How much do you REALLY know?


Well-known member
I read this today, thought it was entertaining, in light of all the political hateration that has been brewing on here as of late. It's all in good fun - see what score you get
. I got 5, which means i'm John McCain - lol.

Do you know your Palin from your Feylin, your fist jab from your soul tap and, more importantly, who stars in the VP porn tapes? Take our Presidential Pop Culture Quiz and find out!

An American presidential election in the modern era is, to be sure, an interesting paradox. On the one hand, it throws up some of the least sympathetic public figures in the known solar system, and produces wave after wave of unbearably, excruciatingly unwatchable visual moments - and those are just the ones involving Sarah Palin's piggy, twitching eyes. And yet, thanks to the USA's fine tradition of televisual satire, and indeed the internet's unerring ability to leap upon any minor candidate faux pas like a pack of raptors, the current dust-up has proved to be more entertaining than anything else on our screens, and will continue to be so until someone invents a show where former X Factor contestants are made to wrestle with bears. The US presidential race is the best source of comedy around - and not all of it intentional. So how closely have you been watching?

Who did you score?

0 - 4: George Bush
Oh dear. You don't appear to know anything. What do phrases like 'Troopergate" and "Belugagate" mean to you? Do you even know what you're supposed to shout at Obama at rallies? You don't, do you, because you're too busy watching bilge like Strictly Come Dancing to get involved. "Barack, you rock!"

5 - 8: John McCain
You're only about 50% informed when it comes to what's being said about the ongoing presidential and vice-presidential skirmishes; you're in the dark about a lot of the important stuff. You're not one of the candidates, are you? Ah yes, satire - it's alive and well here at the Guide.

9 - 13: Jon Stewart
The only way you can possibly know so much is if you are Jon Stewart. In which case, can we have an interview, please?
