  •  yes, but the real dividend we would see (4+ / 0-)

    would be that these reality-challenged types wouldn't be so ardent in their active volunteering for a candidate, like they were for Bush.  If they stay home on election day, great, but the real benefit is if they stay home for the 9 months or so BEFORE the election.

    AND, if the evangelical pastors stop corecing their memberships into voting Republican, and oh, maybe, say, feed and clothe the poor?

    •  I don't hold out much hope for those pastors, (0+ / 0-)

      Alyosha. They are more enamored of the Old Testament, what with all the punishing and the smiting. But you are exactly right about religious conservatives staying home in the months before the election: here in Texas, for example, ever since the late 1980's, hateful Jeebusites have been the envelope stuffers and door-to-door block walkers. I'd love to see them all find better things to do. Having to pay to get routine campaign work done is a great way to drain a party's coffers.
