Poll question: Are you a latte-drinking Volvo-driving NPR-listening etc. liberal?
The complete question:
Are you a latte-drinking Volvo-driving NPR-listening Birkenstock-wearing New York Times-reading tofu-eating liberal?

Much of this, according to a Google search, turned up in a Club for Growth anti-Dean ad run in Iowa, though they're just the same old cliches people have been throwing around for years. No attack on liberals implied here (ie from me), though I had to throw in tofu-eating so I'd have something to vote for.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

70. Latte-drinking, minivan-driving, suburban stay-home mother.
By most stereotypical thought, I should be a conservative "security mom" type.

I'm not a soccer mom, but my oldest DOES play lacrosse, and I DO shuttle the kids around, so I guess I'm a lacrosse mom.

2. Well, the Vovlo has an intercooled turbo
and I read the NYT every day because I'm a native NY'er... but I do like to speed down 280 listening to heavy metal music. And I can spot Dale Jr on sight (from all the car mags). Will that make me safe once the fascists start rummaging through people's closets?

...I don't drink coffee at all, much less latte, can't afford a Volvo (I'm driving a ten-year-old Saturn), haven't listened to NPR in YEARS, and never did wear Birkenstock. Does Rockport count? :)

I only read some of the NY Times online...and I absolutely LOATHE Tofu!

Do I have to transfer over to FR? Please say it isn't so!?!?!

21. None of the above
I drive an Isuzu pick up truck. I've never had a latte and I rarely even drink regular coffee. I listen to my local hard rock station. I don't read any newspapers let alone the New York times. I've never had tofu. I wear BVD t-shirts, Levi jeans and generic tennis shoes.

I smoke cigarettes, eat meat, drive an 18 wheeler for a living and shop at Wal-mart occasionally. I'm basically a regular joe.

I read the NY Times about once a week (living in Maryland I can't always find it), wear Birkenstocks in the summer (if I can afford to buy them), eat a bit of tofu now and then, and listen to NPR sometimes. I drive a used Toyota Camry. Can't drink coffee...so I stick to tea. Liberal, YES!
What does this list make me????

28. Southern blue collar descendant who listens to country music
My dad worked on the oil rigs, I grew up in South Mississippi and was president of my church youth group. I worked my way out of Mississippi, through college, into an administrative business job, while raising a family.

I do eat tofu. I drink sake and drive a Prius. I've been planning to stick a number 3 on the back of it, but haven't, yet.

Cliches are dehumanizing. They allow people to dismiss you without having to know you. (Damn, that sounded like Shrek.)

36. Define "American car".
My old Honda was built in the USA, and there are Chryslers, Fords and GM vehicles built in Canada and Mexico.

However, when one buys ANY car, they buy it from an American dealer and pay American taxes. When it needs repair, they pay American mechanics and buy parts from American dealers.

That's what will keep you from being towed in a UAW parking lot.

I drive a Saturn, which has more American made and assembled parts than any other car on the market.

What shall I do with my union card (worthless though it is, living in a right to fire state)?

AFAIK Saturn is just the GM-label to sell Opel-developed cars in the US.

67. No, I wrote a Master's thesis on them
At least as of 10 years ago, it was a rare instance of GM doing something right. Real union-management cooperation, real worker contributions to all levels of design and construction. The general consensus was that the result, however, was generally pretty uninspired knockoffs of 5-year-old Japanese designs. Things may have changed since 1993 of course, but to be honest, I don't think anybody is rushing to imitate Opel. GM already tried that once when they quit selling German-made Opels in the US and instead marketed Isuzus as Opel Isuzus. I don't think this ended well.

I remembered reading that modified Opel Vectras were sold under the Saturn label; that wasn't too long ago (say three years). Well, thanks for the clarification.

32. I don't have a car....I ride my bike and take the bus
BUT I do like frappacinnos (vanilla ones) and that is as close to latte that I come...

Reading the NYT is practically a mitzvah where I come from. So, yes I read the NYT, religiously.

I occasionally listen to NPR and did so more in the past before the rise of the Bushies and the rightward shift.

I have been known to enjoy tofu a time or two..

I wear Birkies as well as Eccos and Doc Martens.

I guess I could be called liberal but I think that term has been sullied by the Democrats. REAL liberals have SPINES and FIGHT BACK when attacked.

37. I used to be three or more
but I stopped listening to NPR regularly when Air America Radio launched in Atlanta. And this is coming from someone who has been a religous listener to Morning Edition and All Things Considered for more than 15 years.

The other ones that fit me are: latte drinking, NY Times reading and Tofu eating. :) I would like to drive a Volvo someday, but I'm enjoying having no car payment on my mazda protege.

50. To the above:
latte-drinking Don't drink coffee 99.9% of the time. Tea is my drink of choice, or hot cocoa.

Volvo-driving Can't afford to get my soon-to-be 10 year old van fixed, nevermind driving a Volvo.

NPR-listening I don't usually listen to the radio much. When I do, it's usually classical music.

Birkenstock-wearing Can't afford them, but if I could, I might consider wearing them.

New York Times-reading Once in a while.

tofu-eating Not a big tofu eater, though I am a semi vegetarian who avoids beef, pork and pretty much anything that walks on four feet. Had to start eating turkey and chicken for health reasons, but most meals are still without meat.

liberal? Yup!

No latt. Driven a vulv...um...Volvo twice in my life. Rarely listen to any radio. Don't like Birkenstocks (my sandals choices have been more along the Merrel/Teva kind of thing, for the most part). Don't often read the newspaper and never read the NYT unless it's via an online referral here or elsewhere.

62. you get what you see
Right-wingers tend to have conservative fashion style, do they not? Conservative, as in, a couple of years behind. Or conservative, as in, dressing to please the senior citizens. By those definitions, I don't dress conservatively.

Oh yes, black coffee (whole-bean) or cappucinos (lattes are too milky).
Master's degree--why do right wingers scoff at education?
I enjoyed my trip to Europe.

66. I don't drink coffee. I've never driven a Volvo. Newspapers are obsolete.
Tevas wear better than Birkenstocks. But I do sometimes eat tofu, and sometimes I listen to NPR. I like reading articles from the New York Times, and other publications, online.

78. I like lattes
And I eat soy products (I'm munching on some soy breakfast sausage right now), but I don't really eat tofu specifically. NPR has become too rah-rah-Bush for me, so I don't listen. I wear hiking boots, not birkenstocks. I drive a Honda and I've never read the NYT.

79. Except for the Volvo and Birks, yup.
I drive a VW and wear work boots most days. My mom did drive a Volvo when I was little, so I guess some of that is left. The real question is what is wrong with enjoying a good beverage, safe car, comfortable shoes, healthy food and good information, and possibly defining those differently than some other Americans do.

Edited on Mon Dec-20-04 09:25 AM by RadFemFL
Used to listen to NPR until I started hearing WALMART commercials on it. VW Jetta driving, Diet Coke drinking, atheist, feminist, bisexual, pro-choice, vegetarian, single parent liberal here.

I listen to mostly metal, hiphop and alternative.

And yes, I DO scare conservatives after they find out the above.

Saab's are safer and more fun to drive :-) I also listen to NPR, read the NYT, and eat tofu on occasion.

Birkenstocks just aren't that comfy to me, and they're damn expensive.

I'm a vegan, no less. I don't drive - I take public transportation. And I don't wear Birkies because I don't wear leather. I read NYT and other news online to save paper. I don't listen to NPR - I listen to other independent radio webcasts online though.
I'm so liberal it hurts....

84. Don't kill me, but I'm going to agree with the FReepers
Latte is not coffee, and only a 'girlyman' would pretend that it is. Anything with more milk in it that an espresso is just an attempt to make milk-shakes into something for grown-ups. Coffee should look, small and taste like freshly laid road-tar.

On the other hand, as an Englishman I drink tea, and even worse in the right's eyes I drink green-tea (that's probably halfway to paganism). I also eat real cheese and drink French wine by the bucket load.

Oh, and I have an M.A. (Hons.). I've never understood the American right-wing's dislike of education, do they really think that university's are like re-education camps? The British right-wing fortunately escapes this anti-intellectualism.

97. NPR-bingo
but that's mainly due to the high level of quality programming on our local NPR station. No classical music. great line up of shows on the weekend, lots of world and indie folk on the weekdays. Unfortunately, it usually gets turned off by the people with lesser-evolved musical tastes in our office.

Coffee: black.

Car: Toyota Corolla

Birkenstocks: nope. New Balance sneakers or Timberland steel toe hikers

NYT: I only read the free weeklies.

Tofu: when someone else cooks it.

Liberal: Check!

106. I got so sick of tofu in the seventies that I can barely stand
to look at it now. Beans, rice, tofu, Nori...

We had a fifty pound bag of brown rice from the co-op (a real co-op--none of this elitist, high-priced Whole Foods or Alfalfa's BS)--when it ran out, we bought another bag...and so on. I ate rice with beans, onions, and garlic; rice with curry; rice in veggie broth; rice for three meals a day (except for the occasional tofu or ramen--which was nothing like the ramen of today). I used to cook the stuff in the pressure cooker with veggies and carrots and beans and stuff.

I ate so much rice in Iowa City that one day I took a bite and literally gagged. B-)

It was years before I could eat rice again.

113. Blue-collar, SC resident, pickup truck (had a Volvo, never again),
tofu OK but not required, Times is better than the local paper. Now Birkestocks just don appeal to me, and while NPR is sometimes alright, does it really belong in the Club's crappy list of presumptively liberal pretensions? That as a long time ago, before the canonization of Reagan, which didn't get much criticism from NPR.

No, I am a store brand diet soda drinking, minivan driving, music listening, tennis shoes wearing, LBN reading, eating nothin special liberal.
