Ah, December. Those lonely winter nights, forcing you to think back with nostalgia on the year that has passed and the increasing probability that you will not find a date for New Year's. But do not fear -- I am here to help! This quiz combines nostalgia with romance, a formula that has produced successful films such as Gone With the Wind, Titanic, and (in a few years) Avatar 2!

So if you're feeling lonely this Hanukkah and you're worrying you might not be able to find a date by the eighth night, don't worry! You are not alone! "Sure, I don't have a date, ma," you say, "but that's because my true soulmate is one of the top newsmakers of 2010."

And nothing says "I am taking control of my romantic destiny" like "I am taking an online Find Your Soulmate quiz."

Don't just mope under your increasingly controversial Thomas Kinkade painting! Take the quiz (after the jump) and find out with whom you should be spending these holidays! And let us know who your mate is in the comments!

This quiz is broken...

Those questions did not make a damn bit of sense and the answer is just dumb.

The answers made perfect sense, and the quiz is not broken.

However, it is still deeply flawed because I know in my heart that my soulmate is the giant papier mache Stephen Colbert puppet that appeared at the Rally for Sanity and/or Fear. However, this was not an option.

The questions made sense to me, so I ended up with the answer I wanted: Christine O'Donnell!

I'm looking forward to our one night Christmas stand, but I expect "I'll Have A Blue Christmas" with OR without her.

So I'm not that happy getting Christine, but I'd do anything to keep from ending up with that other guy, no matter how high the rent is.

And if the questions don't make sense to you, I would avoid the use of the word, "dumb."

All of those were Hobson's choices. Besides, it was pretty easy to figure out which question matched which political wacko. (As for my result, I could have told you that on my blog:

Stupid is as stupid does, quiz was no sense at all.

"Fishing is a mending, of the heart, spirit, mind and body. The Arabs found the truth centuries ago, and the made the proverb which will always be interesting: ALLAH DOES NOT DEDUCT FROM THE ALLOTTED TIME OF MAN THOSE HOURS SPENT IN FISHING..." South Bend Bait Co. 1950 Guide. She's got to fish. You don't pick the fish, they pick you.

"Skunking days are established by the Good Lord to make sure man never is able to outsmart the fish. For if he did soon there would be none." Mepps Take a kid fishin' 1976 Fisherman's Guide.

Keep the fish wrappers coming and don't try to outsmart her. You know how that goes.
