I did do better than average on this quiz. How did you do? I found this one a fun and not too difficult quiz.

Seldom have I seen so much wisdom in ONE email. Enjoy!

He’s a Republican
She’s a Dem
We are us
They are them
We sit in our corners
And stir up a fuss
We’ve each got out labels

Who we identify
