Well, 2012 is drawing to a close. It was a year of highs and lows — and a few actions that were beneath contempt. We endured a Republican primary contest that grudgingly settled on Mitt Romney, who, according to his son, didn’t really want to run in the first place. We watched President Obama blow the first debate and set off complete progressive panic. And 52 percent of us celebrated his decisive reelection.

Marriage equality, gun control, immigration, reproductive rights, income inequality, deficits, government spending and a host of other issues big and small occupied our thoughts and conversations. That is, when we weren’t watching viral videos from Psy or remakes of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” or the Olympics.

Each week of this crazy year, I tested your inner pundit to see if you were as up on political opinion as you thought you were. Sometimes there was more going on than the five questions allowed. But never fear. The final p-Op quiz of 2012 is a 20 question year-end extravaganza. About half of the questions made their debut earlier in the year. But the other half were questions that didn’t make the cut on previous quizzes.

If you ace this thing, you’re a stone cold nerd. So, as I’ve commanded on this day every week of 2012, sharpen your pixels and get crackin’. And have a Happy New Year!
