I did the RTE Electoral Compass to see where I stand in the US political landscape. Based on my answers I practically am Barack Obama, although apparently I’m 5% “more progressive” than him on social issues.
I’m not getting excited about this election. I hate George Bush and I think the McCai/Palin ticket is a terrifying prospect, but I think the messianic part of the Obama act is going to be a huge anti-climax for a lot of people when he turns out to be a fallible, toe-stubbing human being. And I speak from experience as someone who stayed up all night in ’97 watching the New Labour landslide as if I were watching the Return of the Jedi. Look where that got the world. Thanks Tony.

Damn. If you’re Barack Obama, and if I’m also Barack Obama going on the basis of this test, then who exactly is the man currently running for president?
