Meghan O'Rourke reviews Arianna Huffington's new book over at Slate:
Huffington is famously hard to pin down. For years, she was a Republican, a Newt Gingrich-backer, and a hostess on the conservative Washington circuit; now, she is a Democrat who hobnobs with Hollywood glitterati. While running for governor of California in 2003, she made cracking down on "fat-cat" tax evaders an important part of her platform, yet the Los Angeles Times reported that she had paid a mere $771 in federal taxes over the prior two years. She is anti-SUV, yet she uses a private jet... Is it possible to come up with a unified theory of Arianna?Self-serving hypocrite?
