Members of the liberal left exude an air of moral certitude. They pride themselves on being selflessly committed to the highest ideals and seem particularly confident of the purity of their motives and the evil nature of their opponents. But do they actually live by these beliefs? Peter Schweizer decided to investigate in depth the private lives of some prominent liberals - politicians like the Clintons, Nancy Pelosi, the Kennedys, and Ralph Nader; commentators like Michael Moore, Al Franken, Noam Chomsky, and Cornel West; entertainers and philanthropists like Barbra Streisand and George Soros. And what he found was a long list of glaring contradictions. Schweizer's conclusion is simple - liberalism in the end forces its adherents to become hypocrites. He thus exposes the contradiction at the core of liberalism - if these ideas don't work for the very individuals who promote them, how can they work for the rest of us?
