Says Time Magazine's politics calibrator.
I say it out loud: "I am 26% conservative, 74% liberal."
And Meade say: "I'm not surprised."
Me: "Can I quote that? And how would you describe the tone of your voice?"
Meade: "It can be misinterpreted as resignation but that's not accurate. I was reading your post where you're quoting me saying 'I guess I'd really be a fool not to take a close look if Althouse were to, just out of niceness, propose to pity-marry me.'"
Me: "So the tone of your voice was about that?"
Meade: "No, but I was a little annoyed to be interrupted, and also, those questionnaires... I don't believe them." He imitates people saying "A-ha! This proves it!" and bragging about their percentages and so forth, but I couldn't transcribe all that. He thinks the questionnaires are bullshit and prefers the fascinating story of how he and I got together. I agree. 100%.
