    Back in Oct 2004, Rush Limbaugh put out the Liberal Kook Test. Here is the test. Please take the test and see how you rate on the liberal kook meter

    I am sad to say maybe 30% of the people in this country will score high on the test

    If you believe any of the following mindless, baseless, loony-tune ideas, you are a kook. If you have liberal kook friends who do not know they are kooks, use this to quiz them. You have my permission to print out ten copies. This page is watermarked. If you exceed ten copies…we will know. (If you believe this, you are a kook.)

    You are a kook if you “feel” that…

    George Bush is about to institute The Draft

    The government is monitoring what you read in the public library

    Karl Rove planted forged documents so Dan rather would broadcast them on “60 Minutes II.”

    Osama bin Laden has been captured, and is being held in a secret location until close to the November elections.

    George Bush has a secret deal with the Saudis to manipulate oil prices near the election.

    The Patriot Act was created to oppress American dissidents and suppress free speech.

    American cities are closing firehouses because the money is being spent opening firehouses in Iraq.

    The recent hurricanes were a result of global warming, which is caused by America’s automobile usage, especially SUVs.

    All we need to guarantee our national security is a global Marshall Plan to eliminate world hunger, poverty, and inadequate health care.

    Terrorists can be transformed into peace-loving citizens by engaging them in meaningful dialogue at the U.N.

    The world was more “stable” when Saddam Hussein was in power.

    The only reason American troops were sent to Afghanistan so a pipeline could be built, enriching multinational oil conglomerates.

    More terrorists were “created” when the United States “invaded” Iraq.

    Diplomacy is the answer to all Middle East conflict. Terrorists will return to their peaceful, productive lives once we leave the region.

    Bush knew in advance 9-11 was going to happen and did nothing to stop it.

    Al Qaeda are really “freedom fighters.”

    The looting in Iraq was caused by American troops not being “pro-active.”

    There are two Americas by design: “rich America” purposefully keeps “poor America” down.

    The rich get richer on “the backs” of the poor.

    One million African-Americans, who vote in Democrat wards and precincts, under Democrat cities, had their votes disenfranchised by Republicans operating from Texas.

    Al Gore won Florida.

    John Kerry was really on a secret mission to Cambodia on Christmas Eve, 1968.

    Richard Clarke was telling the truth.

    Dan Rather didn’t realize the documents were fake.

    Kitty Kelley is a reliable, world-class biographer with “unimpeachable” sources.

    The New York Times is “the paper of record”-and covers all the news that is fit to print.

    Ted Kennedy is a wise and honorable elder statesman, whose only interest is public service.

    Robert Byrd is a wise and honorable elder statesman, the “Conscience of the Senate.” Those who harp on his KKK past are just mean-spirited.

    Jimmy Carter is a world statesman.

    Dennis Kucinich may never be President, but he really had something with his proposal to eliminate the Defense Department and replace it with a Peace Department.

    The Carlyle Group, Halliburton, and Bechtel represent a greater threat to the world than Saddam did.

    Campaign finance reform will keep the rich from exerting undue influence on the political process.

    Republicans are in bed with polluters, drug companies, Big Business, and-of course-Big Oil.

    The Religious Right are the true terrorists.

    This is the worst economy since Herbert Hoover.

    We have no allies in Iraq and acted unilaterally.

    The French will send troops to Iraq if John Kerry is elected.

    Teresa Heinz Kerry was on target when, after Hurricane Ivan hit, she said people in the Caribbean should “go naked.”

    Forged documents can lead to a “larger truth.”

    Terrorism is caused by the West imposing its materialist, imperialist, corporate selfishness on the rest of the world.

    Human society would be at one if the United States would only learn an ethos of generosity, tolerance, and caring for the environment.

    Kerry knows why he’s running for President.

    Overweight America can be fired by lawsuits.

    Poverty and homelessness in America are caused by Republicans.

    SUVs are evil.

    The $60 million spent on political ads by pro-Kerry groups is healthy expression of free speech, but the $3 million spent by the Swift Vets is an illegal Bush Administration conspiracy to undermine campaign finance reform laws.

    The war in Iraq was caused by the Neocons.
