Cool Site: Your Political Compass

So, now that I got political I can't seem to stop. Ran into Netscape's "Cool Site of the Day" which is:

The Political Compass

Take this questionnaire and they tell you where you place politically (both socially and economically) on the scale. They use a cool triangulation method:

Here is what mine said:

Cool. You try it, it's fun.

We've been a little bit ahead of you over here in my part of the world (WI), averaging probably about 9 C for the last couple weeks. Even got up around 20 C a couple times.
