They Whom Wingnuts Serve

Your typical wingnut isn't all that smart or well-off, financially speaking. Many lack a formal education beyond high school, though some have accumulated a few credits from the local community college, while others teach at these institutions. A few have even graduated from one or another of the available christian madrassas, like here or here.

But, generally speaking, your typical wingnut is usually some poor schlub just trying to get by.

Now, you're typical authoritarian repub is another story. They've gone to school, sometimes in the finest halls of higher education if they've got that legacy-thing going for them. And they've either inherited enough scratch to live large, or have scammed their way into the most upper income brackets.

They're not stupid or without resources, and they want to either take every last penny and toy they've accumulated with them when they die, or else pass it along to their spawn completely intact. But since they can't do their own dirty work, they're always looking for new and better ways to get ever-willing wingnuts to do it for them.

Anywhoozle, here's a quick video by dday over at Fightin' Digby's that puts the whole dynamic in a nutshell. Stupid fucking wingnuts.
