For list lovers

Some people, including me, love perky lists.  Here is a doozy from the New Yorker to describe the American political party's core voters, the Republican base. "An excitable, overlapping assortment of:
Fox News friends,
Limbaugh dittoheads,
Tea Party animals,
war whoopers,
Christianist fundamentalists
a la carte Catholics (anti-abortion; anti-torture, no),
anti-Rooseveltians (Franklin and Theodore),
global-warming denialists,
port-Confederate white Southrons,
market idolaters,
Europe demonizeres, and
gun fetishists.
