No wonder they won't let me vote

Here in the glorious liberal, progressive blue state, they won't let me vote in the upcoming primary because I have previously registered as having no party affiliation (aka independent), something unheard of in truly progressive places like Wisconsin. I guess those Eastern Establishment types know how to best protect themselves from the likes of me, now scientifically and statistically proven by the following:

You are a

Social Liberal
(61% permissive)

and an...

Economic Liberal
(15% permissive)

You are best described as a:

Socialist (15e/61s)

Blog a Dog

I've been working on various essays on inclusion, sacred spaces, the Iowa caucuses, various writings by Frank Furedi (not just the recent deliberately provocative one on spiked), and have thought about entering the recent fray over multi-culturalism, Nazir-Ali's remarks and Jonathan's commentary on those remarks. However, Gracie has suggested that I get the day-job stuff out of the way while she naps and then take her out for a long walk in what looks like will be near-tropical, record-breaking weather here later today (projected to be 58 F -- it was minus 10 F last Thursday). Sounds like a much better plan. Hope Rowan and Clumber and the pups all get out to play today, as well.
