Pop quiz!

Ready?
ARE YOU A DEMOCRAT OR A REPUBLICAN?

IS YOUR CLASS LIBERAL, MODERATE, OR CONSERVATIVE?

ANSWER THIS TRUE/FALSE QUESTIONNAIRE AND FIND OUT!

The questions that followed were eye-popping:

1. The United States was right to invade Iraq and remove Saddam Hussein from power in 2003 (True/False).

2. Gay couples should not legally be allowed to marry (True/False).

3. Every law-abiding American should have the right to own a gun (True/False).

4. A woman should not have the right to have an abortion to end her pregnancy (True/False).

5. A convicted murderer should receive the death penalty (True/False).

Pencils down.

This test was given the sixth graders at a public school on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Hmmm...I wonder if there are no wrong answers? Nah, too much to ask. (Via Jonah Goldberg.)

In Texas they give the same test but with a different title:
"Are you Bold and Proud, or a Cream Puff?"

Heh. Well, you're probably right, but my Texas (at least growing up) was a much smaller place than yours.

No matter what your answers are on that test we, as a society, have lost our minds if we are giving that test to 6th graders.
