Greensboro’s Political Compass, Version 2.0

By Anthony | February 21st, 2006 | 9:57 pm

Thanks to everyone who added their results in the earlier thread. I was right – a smaller font size was definitely necessary. I made some other minor changes to the graph, including adjusting Cara Michele’s marker to reflect her actual score, which she sent to me via email. Everyone else should be in the correct spot, so let me know if you see any mistakes.

The Greensboro Blogoshphere's Political Compass, Version 2.0

Again, no image map to start out with, so the names aren’t links right now. The graph is a little more dense this time, so it’ll be more challenging, but if anyone wants to take a swing at coding one I’ll be happy to add it. In the meantime, here are the good ol’ text links to everyone:

Beth, David Boyd, Ginger Bush, Cara Michele, Woody Cavenaugh, Matt Hill Comer, Sean Coon, Darkmoon, Fecund Stench, Joel Gillespie, David Hoggard, Laurie, Tony Ledford, Jon Lowder, Sue Polinsky, PotatoStew, Roch Smith, Jr., Spirit, Jeff Sykes, David Wharton, Sam Wharton

    Stew’s been simmering

    The updated compass courtesy of PotatoStew. Difficult to believe that so many bright people in and around Greensboro could be so misguided. Guess it’s tru…

  2. David Allen Says:

    Amazing how we are the ones who are “misguided”.

  3. Sam Wharton Says:

    Its kinda lonely way out here.

  4. Laurie Says:

    Don’t worry, Sam, I’ll throw you a rope.

  5. Mr. Sun Says:

    That’s strange. What’s that shadowy figure coming up behind Sam Wharton? It must be someone who has great power and a long memory.

    Hey, add me!

    Economic Left/Right: -6.99
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -7.21

  7. PotatoStew Says:

    Thanks George, I’ll add you in. I have scores from Joe Guarino too, so I’ll be doing at least one more revision. If anyone else wants to be included, post your scores here. And try to think like a Fascist Rightwinger if you can – we’re running out of room in the lower left corner!

  8. PotatoStew Says:

    Libertarian Rightwingerism will work too.

  9. David Boyd Says:

    So this is how blue-staters feel.

  10. gingerivers Says:

    Yes, and if Laurie misses, I’ve got one in reserve. it’s used for mountain climbing, which I spent a great part of my life doing, and I’ve never lost anyone yet attached to the other end of it. Need a few caribiners or slings to go with that? You’ll havr to rappel down from that authorative position.

    Just don’t ask a particular redneck who happens to live near the Mayo River for one, they intimate he uses ropes for other purposes. Maybe someone else can get them to investigate that.

  11. Fecund Stench Says:

    I can see Stalin from here. Great.

  12. Mr. Sun Says:

    Also: Joel, David and Roch are right on top of each other. Let’s call that “Brokeback Quadrant.”

  13. Billy The Blogging Poet Says:

    Economic Left/Right: -7.75
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.62

    Wow, for once in my life I’m not alone!
