Rush Limbaugh specializes in this kind of self-flattering distortion of reality. For example, (Item 6) conservatives regard charity as a financially attractive alternative to paying taxes. It has everything to do with greed and little to do with humanity. They like charity better, because it enables them to deny assistance to those whom they consider unworthy. They feel that tax revenues all too often go to groups or individuals whom they despise, like racial minorities, unwed mothers, people from the LGBT communities. Rather than an admirable activity, charitable giving by conservatives is actually mean-spirited and stingy rather than admirable.
