How many of these Dare County names do you recognize?
Award your yourself five points if you are familiar with the person's name and ten points if you know the name and are acquainted with the person. OK?
Total possible score is 100 points.
(1) Kathy McCullough-Testa

(3) Darrell Collins
(4) Alex Baer
(5) Christine Young
(6) Susan Pope
(7) Susan-Harmon Scott
(8) Anna Elizabeth Morey
(9) Frank Dale Draper
(10) Chris Hardee
OK...take the test....and if you scored:
100 points --- You are a sure fire "yella dog democrat".
90 points ---- You voted for Obama
80 points ----- You are not a Outer Banks native
70 points ---- You live north of KH
60 points -----You live between Nags Head & KDH
50 points ----- You live on Hatteras Island, Roanoke Island, or the mainland
40 points ----- You are an Unaffiliated voter
30 points ----- You rarely vote
20 points ----- You never vote
10 points------ You don't give a damn
0 points------ You're a Republican
Answers to Quiz:
The first seven people listed are the current officers of the Dare County Democratic Party. Number eight and number nine, above, are the two delegates who will cast Dare County's votes for Senator Basnight's replacement later this month, along with delegates from the other seven counties in District I. (Beaufort, Washington, Tyrrell, Hyde, Dare, Currituck, Camden, Pasquotank).
Oddly, both Morey and Draper reside in Southern Shores, NC, which is considered by many Outer Banks residents to be a Republican stronghold. And, even more ironic is the fact, that, according to state voter registrations records, neither Morey or Draper were Dare County voters 10 or 12 years ago. All of which proves one thing, (1) politics is changing in Dare County, slowly; and, reinforces another, (2) that being, that politics makes strange bedfellows.
Number 10 on the list is a former or current (EOD doesn't know either) Grand Pooh Pah of the local Democratic Party and 3rd District Grand Dragon (or something like that) of the State Democratic Party.
If you haven't guessed it by now, EOD didn't score 100 on the test either.
That is what's so good about being an Unaffiliated voter these days.
