  1. #1 Are you Democrat or Republican? Does language give you away?

    Using text from Senate floor speeches, researches isolated words more often used by Democrats or Republicans. Click here and find out which on you are.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Says that I'm 80% Republican... that thing made no sense though...
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    A persons brain is less than 10% of his body.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    One of the choices was "defense" or "veteran".
    I use both of these words often.

    For a second I thought this was one of the labs I used to work in. I was nearly surprised I didn't hear of this.

    but its not

    Well I did work in a psycholinguistics lab that studied how language patterns correlated with various traits, from differences in gender, self-esteem, predisposition towards mental illness, and yes even political party. This psychologist examined the language use of the 2000 and 2004 Presidential Candidates and found distinct differences.

    There is software developed for this where they are able to input poetry or writing or relaly just about any text and predict information about the author
