Peter Schweizer takes aim at liberal political figures who he says fail to put their money where their mouths are. With his keen articulation and lightly sardonic style, Grover Gardner is the perfect choice to read these seven profiles in hypocrisy. With a sly twinkle in his voice, Gardner articulates the author's criticism of Noam Chomsky, who condemns American imperialism while charging $12,000 per speaking engagement and storing his gains in offshore accounts. Also profiled are Al Franken, Nancy Pelosi, Barbra Streisand, and the Clintons. Most eye-opening is hearing Gardner gleefully describe Michael Moore, whose criticism of American enterprise smacks up against a $380,000 corporate stock and bond portfolio that has included shares in Merck, McDonald's, General Electric, and Halliburton.
