Please take the following IQ test to determine whether you are generally cognizant, more or less aware, at least half awake, playing with a full deck, no bricks shy of a load, in like Flynn, right way Corrigan and in the right camp, or, unfortunately, no longer living.

Please be advised that this is a single elimination exam. If you fail to successfully answer all questions correctly, you are either; A) a total moron, or B) a left leaning - commy pinko - weak kneed - lilly livered - slack jawed - knee jerk - Massachusetts based - overly nuanced - flag sneering - trollodite Dodger fan, or C) unfortunately, no longer living.

Fill in the Blanks, using the clues provided to help you appear less than totally hopeless:
