I just filled out my application form for the absentee ballot. It asked me for my "race".
 So should I put "Human" or "Golden Retriever"? Or "Arian" maybe?

8. Say White if you want to get it counted, say "African-American" if you want it thrown in the trash
 by some Bushie.

Sadly, that is pretty much the case these days, and the fact that absentee-ballots ask for which "race" makes it quite clear.

State-legislature controlled by Repugs much?

(no need to answer, I already know the answer, but confirmation would be nice and if I am wrong, I should know, too)

18. Since you asked, I'd go with "Aryan"
 Better chance of the ballot not being "lost" that way.

Some people manage a sensible response, but this is DU so the paranoids come out of the woodwork.

No, my friends, there’s only one really progressive idea. And that is the idea of legally limiting the power of the government. That one genuinely liberal, genuinely progressive idea — the Why in 1776, the How in 1787 — is what needs to be conserved. We need to conserve that fundamentally liberal idea. That is why we are conservatives. --Bill Whittle

I guess they must have all put "white" to win Congress  :tinfoil2:

They need another category just for the DUmmies.
