In the days after the 2008 presidential election, we heard that Sarah Palin thought Africa was one big country. We heard that the leak came from Martin Eisenstadt, a McCain policy adviser. And then, within forty-eight hours, we heard that he was a fraud, a fake, and that Martin Eisenstadt didn't exist. Maybe he doesn&#8217;t. But in a world where 'news' can spread like wildfire on the Internet and a hoax can tell you more about politics than the facts, Martin Eisenstadt&#8212;whose blog and think tank fooled the world&#8212;has something to tell us. With the savviness of Primary Colors and the playfulness of Forrest Gump, his book is a mix of political intrigue, campaign-trail escapades, and cyberspace detective work. From debate preparation with Sarah Palin to his mother&#8217;s basement (yes, he still lives at home), from Liberation of Iraq softball games to Saturday Night Live; from his campaign for casinos in the Green Zone to happy hour in Washington, we follow a neocon pundit on his travels. This is his version of the election campaign. Martin Eisenstadt: Hoaxster? Hero? You decide.
