The New York Times published “A Holiday Political Quiz” yesterday that caught my eye. Take it without looking anything up and see how you do.

My favorite question is this one:

11. BEYOND BARBRA AND OPRAH: Match the candidate with the celebrity backer.

A) “Nature Boy” Ric Flair
B) Kevin Bacon
C) Forest Whitaker
D) The Osmonds
E) Melissa Gilbert
F) Merle Haggard
G) Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling
H) Pat Sajak
I) Sean Penn

1) Hillary Clinton
2) Barack Obama
3) John Edwards
4) Rudy Giuliani
5) Dennis Kucinich
6) Mike Huckabee
7) Fred Thompson
8) John McCain
9) Mitt Romney

I got 10 out of 16 without looking anything up.
