    Those were pretty easy questions, pretty scary that only 40% know who Nancy Pelosi is.

    I think this test is kind of inaccurate. I admit there were many politicians on there that I had no idea who they were and just guessed based on what I could remember from seeing them on TV. But I watch little TV if ever, and don't read newspapers because they are all liberal slanted. I listen to the radio more and of course that doesn't have a picture of who they're talking about.

    I have never seen Nancy Pelosi's photo or saw her and didn't pay attention, but I know who she is and what she does. Same with Harry Reid and Dennis Hastert. I know who they are and their titles, but I have no clue as to what they look like.

    But because you see actor/actress faces everywhere, I recognized them more than I did the politicians. I knew Martin Sheen, Madonna, and Harrison Ford's faces well before I got into politics at all.

    I got 327 out of 350 so I guess I should vote. Already did anyway.

    345 out of 350. Isn't it interesting how you will find Paris Hilton's picture in the most unlikely places?

    335 out of 350, I should vote. I didn't know the name of the S. Korean guy, but I knew what he was positioned for. And I didn't know what Nancy Pelosi's position was either.

    You scored 319 out of 350 possible points, or 91.14%

    A
    You should definitely vote.


    I am a little disappointed in myself.:smoke:

    350/350 A+

    Not only should you vote, you should consider a career in politics.

    The only reason I got the Korean one was because the other names were blatantly Japanese though.

    334 out of 350. I should vote.

    I thought the picture of Nancy Pelosi was Barbara Boxer, but to be fair, I avoid looking at either one.

    The one flaw I saw in the test is that I think you should get partial credit for matching the name you picked with the title. For example, I got 0 points for Pelosi because I thought she was Boxer, and so gave the answer that she was a U.S. senator. to be fair, Barbara Boxer, the woman I thought it was a picture of, is, in fact, a United States senator.
