33. This is clearly a payoff.
This is right out of the Lee Atwater/Ollie North playbook. You payoff the TV Preachers with cold hard taxpayer cash. By using tax money that was earmarked for AIDs you deprive the actual medical research community of the cash used to fight AIDs. That makes the people who have AIDs suffer and die. That makes right wingers happy.

They think this is a "neat" idea.
