Political Quotient survey

This survey is so bad it's an embarrassment. However, it is rather amusing. Essentially you are asked to vote for, against or abstain on 40 bills and resolutions that have been before the US Congress in the last few years. See for yourself how much of a Democrat or a Republican you are. My score:

Here’s your PQ: 57.2

Politicians with similar PQs are:

Olympia Snowe (R-Maine, 1979-2009) PQ=47.9
Arlen Specter (R-Penn., 1981-2008) PQ=50.6
Ben Nelson (D-Neb., 2001-09) PQ=55.6
Christopher Shays (R-Ct., 1987-2008) PQ=61.0
John F. Kennedy (D-Mass., 1947-60) PQ=63.7

The purpose of all this is to prove once and for all that the American media have a liberal bias. Which would be OK if the author were some hack, but for some reason that I can't even begin to fathom, he has a full professorship at UCLA in political science.
