    As far as I can tell, these theocons have really never cared about the material effects of their support for the other Conservatives. They have done what they're told, donating, organizing and voting for Conservatives who violate all of those principles. Because what they really believe is that they personally are better than everyone else, that others should be punished for their inferiority. And no taxes. They didn't just hang in there - they voted for more, after years of proof of Bush's evil undeniable to anyone except the willfully deluded (and bloodthirsty).

    I do think that their basis in faith for their judgements makes them easy prey to any propaganda mill skilled enough to demonize their opponents. So in fact the agreement between theocon rhetoric and actual progressive policy does make them natural grabs. Any lag or resistance to that just proves more that these theocons are really just easy dupes. Worth scoring for their votes, but not worth taking seriously - as long as they're witlessly herded on the path of justice, regardless of the shabby reasons why.
