Michael Savage Sells ‘Trickle Up Poverty’ to William Morrow

9780062010971_0_Cover.jpgAuthor and conservative radio host Michael Savage has sold a new book to the HarperCollins imprint of William Morrow, a tome entitled Trickle Up Poverty: Stopping Obama’s Attack on Our Borders, Economy, and Security.

Here’s more about the book: “In Trickle Up Poverty, Michael Savage says a revolution is brewing. Americans are boiling mad over the way Congress and this Marxist/Leninist-oriented President are manipulating the current economic crisis to nationalize businesses. They’re steamed over the fraud science used to support global warming–which is nothing more than a gigantic Ponzi scheme. They’re watching their life savings evaporate while the President saddles them with $3.6 trillion in new debt.”

According to Publishers Lunch, Ian Kleinert at Objective Entertainment sold the book to William Morrow’s Lynn Grady and Matthew Benjamin.
