Years ago, when I lived downtown, I knew perhaps fifteen or twenty middle aged homeless men. One of the most striking things about them as a group was that almost every last one of them was a Rush Limbaugh Conservative. Offhand, I can’t recall any who were not. Yet, that kind of conservatism seems no friend of the homeless. So, I’ve wondered now and then why those men — or why anyone for that matter — would espouse an ideology so remote from their apparent self-interest? Any ideas about that would be welcomed.
