I'm not sure the scores they show for "serious political-types" are entirely accurate. When we take the quiz we do so privately; when they estimate the answers for public figures they use public statements which by their nature are going to be shaped by many factors (public opinion, practicality, etc.) that tend to make them significantly more conservative than they would otherwise be. I think if these public figures took the test themselves they would be in significantly different places.

/me is annoyed that I missed this Thread over Xmas ...

Ace, I so wanted to join you in Authoritarianism but it appears that I still have a slight mistrust of the use of power. Not intentional abuse, mind, but rather the danger of Tuttle / Buttle accidents

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Jelco and MaximusBrood know each other in real life. So I assume it was some kind of friendly joke on jelco's part.
