Which 2016 presidential candidate are you? I'm Chris Christie.

Based on this quiz, which isn't about politics.

I got Hillary Clinton.

I'm guessing it was picking "power" as the main Presidential perk that did it. :)

Popville said...

Argh, stopped at the first question, as my two drinks of choice weren't listed. And I ONLY drink one of those, otherwise I'm not in a bar.

lemondog said...

Paul Ryan. Also picked "power" perk.

Big Mike said...

It says I'm Rasputin.

Irene said...

I got Chris Cristie, too.

It's probably because I chose "White House Chefs" for "Presidential Perks" and "Ha" for "Exercise." Or it may have been selecting "Mookie" for a pet name and "Godfather" for the favorite movie.

John said...

I thought the questions were bullshit. There were only a few 1 I could answer truthfully. Most of them I would have picked "none of the above" had it been a choice.

They told me that I was Joe Biden.

And me, a liberal! (In the classic, libertarian sense)

John Henry

But not "Mookie" the shelter dog.

Meade said...

"You're strong and powerful and willing to do whatever it takes to get what you want. Just like Hillary, you're a hard worker who goes above and beyond to complete a challenge. You might have a well-to-do significant other, but that doesn't mean you're riding anyone's coattails!"

Strelnikov said...

Christie.

Meade said...

Unlike Hillary, I would've divorced the big creep in a heartbeat and taken his sexual harassing ass to the cleaners.

Meade said...

Martini, school newspaper, barbecue, protecting children with disabilities, A. Hamilton, Houston, Lonesome Dove, Duke, lifting weights, power... pure and simple.

Meade said...

Oh and by the way, I would never vote for president for anyone who would answer those test questions the way I did.

Ann Althouse said...

I picked parties for the perk, but I agree that the chefs answer was the Christie answer.

"It's probably because I chose "White House Chefs" for "Presidential Perks" and "Ha" for "Exercise.""

I picked neither of those.

"Or it may have been selecting "Mookie" for a pet name and "Godfather" for the favorite movie."

I picked those two.

Ann Althouse said...

Whiskey, Model UN, barbecue, women's rights, A. Hamilton, Boston, Godfather, Mookie, running, parties.

Ann Althouse said...

"But not "Mookie" the shelter dog."

LOL.

EMD said...

The issues question was dumb, as neither personal nor economic freedom were listed.

Michael K said...

The quiz is bullshit and I came out Elizabeth Warren. Nothing could be more ridiculous.

EMD said...

Rick Perry.

Whiskey + BBQ + Camp David.

I need to start wearing glasses!

Irene said...

Original choices (when I got Christie): Martini, Poetry Slams, Cheese, Immigration Reform, St. Thomas Aquinas, Chicago, Godfather, "Mookie," Ha (Exercise), White House Chefs.

I retook the quiz, and I changed one selection: I substituted "Women's Rights" for my original "Immigration Reform."

The answer this time was Hillary Clinton.

Sam L. said...

I'm Rick Perry, BUT--half the questions don't have what I would answer.

DavidD said...

I got Elizabeth Warren, who's just about my polar opposite in every way imaginable.

The Crack Emcee said...

Hillary.

Fernandinande said...

I'll never *really* know the answer to this important question because their selection of answers was too disjoint from mine.

Drink of choice - margarita: Beer was closest.

High school activity - none of the above: Sports was closest since I did that when not taking LSD.

Role model - none of 'em; mostly people I don't care or know about: Hamilton by default.

Issue - immigration reform, but not the way they mean it: Guns (freedom, not control).

Which city - I hate cities: Houston because it isn't in the East.

Movie - Apocalypto: picked Dove.

Exercise - following a pack of dogs hither and yon thru the desert. (had a college intramural weight lifting record, 40+ years ago, so picked weights).

White house perk - I'd hate to be a POTUS. Picked Camp Dave.

= Jeb Bush. Sports, tacos and beer, I guess, not knowing anything about him.

Christy said...

Warren. But I really am 1/16th Cherokee!

White wine, debate, cheese, gun rights, Hamilton, Boston, Lonesome Dove, Pugsly, tennis, Camp David. Somehow I suspect Warren and I come at gun rights from opposite directions.

averagejoe said...

Soda pop, varsity sports, lasagna, gun rights, Alexander Hamilton, Miami, The Godfather, George, lifting weights, white house chefs = Joe Biden... probably because of eschewing the alcohol.

Jason said...

If Chris Christie had driven a woman off one of his bridges and killed her, he'd be a Democrat Party hero!

The Godfather said...

Hillary!

It's a BS quiz. The only thing she and I have in common is balls. And mine are my own.

Freeman Hunt said...

Jeb Bush.

Freeman Hunt said...

Soda because there was no, "Why would I be at a bar?" option, speech and debate, tacos, Aquinas, Houston, Lonesome Dove (or Godfather, but I just watched that recently,) George, walking briskly to meetings (I hate meetings, but I like walking briskly to things,) and White House chefs because...

Power: No appeal.
Meeting celebrities: No. Why?
Awesome White House parties: What are they talking about? Dork parties, they mean. Politico parties. Horrible. No.
Air Force One: A plane? Riding around in an airplane? Is this there in case a five year old boy is taking the quiz?
Camp David: Another house you have to go to that isn't your own house where you happily lived before people elected you and made you move.

Chefs is the only one that's any good. People who are hyper competent at making food making your food all the time. That's great. Obviously the best one.

traditionalguy said...

Saint Paul Ryan . And I didn't even select Thomas Aquinas.

My guess is that the test has a new way to sense type strokes. Hard, pointed, tender, warm, hot, cold, rough, or loving. Google must be behind this.

LYNNDH said...

It's Rigged, I say. Rigged. I got Christie too.

Achilles said...

Soda, sports, bbq , gun rights, Miami, godfather, atlas, Hamilton, power, lifting weights.

This somehow leads to Joe Biden and dropping f bombs.

Someone retarded and liberal put this together.

MathMom said...

I did it twice, got Jeb Bush once and Rick Perry once. It think picking Houston had something to do with that. (They didn't have Anchorage on the list...)

Freeman Hunt said...

"Dork parties, they mean. Politico parties."

I will elaborate. A White House party is like a company party, an obligation party. If you're the President, everyone at your party felt like he had to come and most everyone feels like he has to impress you or kiss up to you. There is, therefore, almost no chance of any authentic social interaction. Nearly all of it will be false. Also, drunk politicians. A bunch of power-lovers, intoxicated, trying to suck up to you. "We're gonna party like it's Tracy Flick's graduation day!"

woo. hoo.

Unrelated: I tried giving the answers I think I would have given in college, and I got Elizabeth Warren.

Meade said...

"I tried giving the answers I think I would have given in college, and I got Elizabeth Warren."

Interesting. I tried doing the same thing: Beer, Spanish club, lasagna, women's rights, Bill Nye Science guy, Boston, V for Vendetta, Mookie, Running, Power, pure and simple.

So — power, pure and simple is the only answer that was the same as when I initially took the quiz.

Hillary again.

Meade said...

I took the quiz one more time. This time I tried giving answers I least prefer: Vodka w/Red Bull, model UN, lobster roll, women's rights, Beyonce, WashingtonDC, V Vendetta, Pugsly, Charity sport event, awesome WH parties.

I got Paul Ryan.

Freeman Hunt said...

I took the quiz one more time. This time I tried giving answers I least prefer

Okay, I just tried the same thing, and I got Hillary Clinton. Maybe they think she likes DC, power, and lobster rolls. I don't see her naming a dog Mookie though.

William Chadwick said...

Damn, I'm Jeb Bush! I was hoping I'd be Hillary because pants suits go well with my cankles.

retired said...

Ann who are you kidding? You even look a little like a lower mileage version of Hillary. Baby boomer, same profession, same kind talk for a living job. At least you have some sort of moral compass and didn't need a husband to get you all your jobs.

What a crummy poll, surprise. Had me as Jeb who I don't like. At least make me Walker or Cruz!

RonF said...

Jeb Bush? Gah.

But nothing close to any of my High School activities were listed. I was in both Band and Chorus, which are pretty mainstream choices. Hard to imagine that if you're picking six HS extracurricular activities to choose among nothing pertaining to music is listed.
