“I believe in an America where millions of Americans believe in an America that’s the America millions of Americans believe in. That’s the America I love.” —Mitt Romney, perhaps impaired by some incorrectly written software.

Mitt Romney is frequently described as “robotic,” but can you tell the difference between him and an automaton? Take this quiz and find out. Some questions are based on exchanges from interviews with the human Republican front-runner; the others were generated by plugging actual interview questions asked of Romney into the artificial-intelligence app Cleverbot.

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
