That was what I assumed. What I was talking about was the possible impact of working with these poor and beaten down individuals and families on people whose lives previously might not have brought them together with this side of life.
I am sure there are an enormous number of really who have seen supporting the Bush agenda as a way of trying to achieve some very desirable social ends. Very much the same kinds of people, and often very much the same kinds of social ends as you'd find among other wonderful and genuinely caring people up the other end of the poitucal spectrum.
Perhaps the fallout from this might see some of these people working together, and starting to see through the cynical bastards who try to con them and to exploit their goodwill, and to generate a culture of hate and contempt that repeatedly erupts in these threads. (From both directions.)
