This just in (actual fan mail! :) )

HI,

I really enjoy your Too Much Liberty’s blog (ttp://toomuchliberty.blogspot.com/ ) and was wondering if you would please mention my--Conservatively Slanted--political satire party test on you r blog and/or add a web link to my test.

Blogger, Plum Crazy (http://www.houseofplum.com/plumcrazy/), “said my test “has aptly been called the world's funniest political quiz.” Blogger, Michael J. Totten (http://michaeltotten.com/ ), called my test, “The funniest political quiz I’ve seen yet, and blogger GM's Corner (http://www.gmroper.com/) referred to my test as “The Political Test of the Decade!” And finally blogger, Hard Astarboard (http://hardastarboard.mu.nu/) said my test was “a masterpiece, if ever I saw one!”

Currently, over 145,000 people have taken my web test.

I believe my test instructs the reader about the virtues of conservatism in a humorous way and demonstrates how conservatism is the only logical solution to solve today’s serious political issues.

Below is the pertinent info about my test.
