    you are exactly right.  That's what the RW ranters are doing -- grabbing a very real anger, and pointing it at their own targets.  They do this by projecting subliminal identification cues to the poor white audience -- rural-style clothes, white male middle-aged face, but above all, accent and language -- that tell their audience that they are "just one of ya'll".  That's what Bush does when he speaks, too -- fake Inland Southern accent occasionally marred by slippage into obscure New England idiom, and body language like a trucker.  Once they have identification down, they can encourage their marks to take down the target they've chosen.
