Past blogs have extolled my mundanity and averageness. A Regular Jane. Main Street Denizen. Mainline Protestant. Middle of the road, garden variety, dime a dozen.
Now it's confirmed that my politics are smack dab in the middle as well. The Pew Research Center released their 2011 Political Typology. It's nothing that we didn't already know. The two political extremes are more polarized. And the middle is hard to define.
How do you classify someone who is pro-choice, pro-death penalty, anti-DREAM Act, pro-English only, pro-nuclear power, anti-flat tax, pro-gay marriage, anti-divorce, pro-gun rights, anti-lead bullets, anti-school sex ed classes, anti-needle exchange, pro-military draft? Someone who attends church every week and flies the American flag every day? Someone who buys all organic food and mows her yard with a reel push mower but drives an SUV and refuses to use CFL light bulbs?
The Pew Research Center confirmed that I'm as purple as they come. A "Post-Modern". Take the test. Find out what you are. Then tell me. Are you who you think you are?
