Dems v. Republicans

Awhile back Kate mentioned how nice it would be if they asked the Republicans “Democratic” questions and the Democrats “Republican” ones. I think she was absolutely right. I know where these guys come down on immigration, guns etc. But I would love to hear them hit with the gitchy-goo wonkery questions. And I would love to hear the Democrats asked about “Islamo-Fascism” and all that. Imagine how the Democrats would answer if asked what guns they own and if they could offer details. I think it would be fascinating to hear them answer and, more importantly, how they would answer. A gun in my home! Are you mad!?

Update: From a reader:

Surely you don’t believe that Democrats do not own guns.  Wow.

That’s right. I don’t believe that. I believe, however, that the leaders of the Democratic  Party are no big on guns and it would be interesting to hear how someone like Obama or Hillary answers that kind of question. It would help a Bill Richardson, and it would hurt others. Similarly, on the Bible questions I think Obama and Hillary would do well, but the others would fumble. Regardless, it would be interesting to hear the Dems respond to these sorts of questions.
