You deserve a break today.

Unlike everyone else writing his and her last-minute "this is it" posts today, I am going to make a point of not talking about the election on Election Day. No disrespect meant to y'all who are bloggin' it, I'm gonna read them anyway and I'm sure they'll be eloquent and lovely.

But today I'm going to shut my mouth, go into the voting booth, do my business and leave in a hope that others will follow my example. All my local races are totally sealed anyway -- Spitzer and Hillary are locks, and I'm going to abstain from selecting a comptroller rather than vote for the Republican to spite the scumbag embezzler Alan Hevesi -- and from here on out, let it be simply known that I'm hoping my guys win so we can begin talking about policy Wednesday afternoon once our victory hangovers have subsided. I have got electoral politicking fatigue out the ass.

So for those who'll be all feverish today we thought we might offer you all a respite from the madness with what we believe is a highly amusing and intellectually challenging survey. I'm all over the place with the subject matter so please exercise your creator-given right to not answer a question if you don't know what the hell we're talking about.

Do us a favor and send this around to anyone you think has earned it. If you'd like, send your answers to Brendan or Craig (contact information on the sidebar) and we'll put the cleverest and most heartwarming answers next to our own. Our answers will then proceed to assault and devour yours. No refunds or returns.

And now...

I yearn for the day when political labels are "so yesteryear"

Of Nietzsche, Marx and Freud, who would you most want to dine with?

Sorry Samantha, but i hear Nietzsche had a crap ass stomach/digestion system (not conducive to a decent dinner partner). And Freud was clearly a pain in the fucking ass. Marx by default.
