Michael Moore and Halliburton

Worst enemies, right?

Well, a new book is out to prove otherwise.

The author, Peter Schweizer, known for his previous works, "The Bushes" and "Reagan's War" has come out with another one; "Do As I Say (Not As I Do): Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy" in which he exposes that Michael - "Capitalism is evil" - Moore owns, nearly 2,000 shares of Boeing, nearly 1,000 of Sonoco, more than 4,000 of Best Foods, more than 3,000 of Eli Lilly, more than 8,000 of Bank One and more than 2,000 of Halliburton.

The book also points out such glaring inconsistencies as the fact that Barbra Streisand owns an SUV, and that Ralph Nader lives in luxury homes registered in his siblings' names.

Not that anything is neccessarily wrong with wealth, or with owning an SUV, or having stock. But if you're going to attack something, it's a good thing to avoid it yourself.
