How on earth would you even begin to know this in any meaningful or comprehensive way?

Actually, it is possible to know this in a meaningful and comprehensive way. But first, I should admit to being overly pissed when I made the initial comment. I know plenty of Dems who are quite generous with their time and money. On the other hand, I've ready many articles in the mainstream media about the giving habits of wealthy Dems and wealthy Repubs. The data shows that folks who identify themselves are Dems tend to give far less to charity than folks who identify themselves as Repubs. In fact, there were several rather interesting reports when Kerry and Gore's charitable contributions made the news, since they had given almost nothing, as compared to Bush who had given a great deal. My point really is that liberals claim the high ground, but they seem to usually inhabit the low ground.
