Robert Reich Learned From The Clintons--Hypocrisy Is His Name

Reality Shows have become the rage
They fill almost the complete TV listing page
But if you tire of scenes of eating snakes or otherwise in a jungle trying to survive
Here is an idea that will the ratings completely eat alive
How about “Hypocrite Games” where reality and statements meet
If revealed as a hypocrite does the speaker flame down in defeat?
The first episode would be a guess as to which social aliment will be our doom?
With three persons facing the contestants in the room
Each person has a bio about what he does but not what he earns
The statement is then read and the author the contestants must discern
    “The moral crisis of our age has nothing to do with gay marriage or abortion; it’s insider trading, obscene CEO pay, wage theft from ordinary workers, Wall Street’s continued gambling addiction, corporate payoffs to friendly politicians, and the billionaire takeover of our democracy,"
If you guess the tiny Robert Reich at 240k for one class you would win
Reich is a classic example of the hypocrisy spin
No wonder students in college leave with such great debt
Having to pay for lectures one would soon forget
Reich believes there is little relation to what a CEOs worth and what they are paid
Applying the same test to Reich I bet he would receive a failing grade
But give him credit for learning from his mentors well
Clintons get more in one speech no wonder hypocrisy sells
