The Political Stereotype GameJune 18th, 2010 by Chris Henry
I’m going to take a calculated risk here and wade into the shark-infested waters of political stereotypes.
I wouldn’t be the first on this blog to do so.
On Tuesday, I Interviewed twin brothers Patrick and Nathan Griffin-Hall from Port Orchard, 27, who both filed as candidates for precinct committee officer. Since they live together, they both filed for the same precinct, but they won’t be facing each other in the primary because Patrick’s a Republican, Nathan’s a Democrat.
Just for fun, let’s see how your expectations play out, as you try to guess which brother is which from the set of attributes and characteristics below. Just answer Republican or Democrat after the question.
Of course if you’ve read the story, you’ll have most of the answers.
OK, here we go.
Has a beard.
Works as a psychiatric aide for Kitsap Mental Health.
Is an animal control officer for the Kitsap Humane Society.
Loves rock music of all eras.
Put a 10-foot diameter red rug with an official looking star in the middle of their living room (it was a cast-off from a department store jewelry department).
Has backpacked through at least a dozen foreign countries.
Has an “active social life with friends and family.”
Graduated from South Kitsap High School.
Attended military school.
Thinks Sarah Palin was unqualified for the office of president.
Is a proponent of individual property rights.
Rescued an obese black cat from the humane society.
Works swing shift.
How did you do? To find out, look for the answers later today on this post.
