We’re all familiar with hypocrisy on the Right: the senator who waves the banner of morality whilst cheating on his wife & so on; indeed, the mainstream media make sure we know all about that. But what about hypocrisy on the Left? Peter Schweizer has written a new book Do As I Say [Not As I Do]: Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy which points out, among other things, that:
- Nancy Pelosi accepts union awards but won’t hire union members in her vineyard or hotels
- Michael Moore invests in oil, military & HMO stocks
- Barbara Streisand spends $20,000 a year on watering her lawn
- Noam Chomsky castigates the rich for using tax shelters—but uses them himself
A most interesting-sounding tome.
