Jerome Corsi and his fancy toilet paper

I am sure many of you know about the Jerome Corsi book that tries to skewer Barack Obama.

Corsi, who wrote a book about Sen. John Kerry four years ago during time in which Kerry was running against Bush for president, claims that this book will show the real Obama.


This book is a piece of crap and everyone knows it. It recycles some of the worst lies about Obama and creates a few more. Corsi is so scandalous that he even talks about Obama's mother.

But it is the number one book on the New York Times best seller list thanks to a skilled campaign of bullshit emanating from the right.

Corsi gets featured on Fox News unopposed in his lies on several occasions, conservative columnists (such as those on Town Hall and One News Now) give Corsi attention, conservative groups buy Corsi's book in bulk . . .

and lo and behold, we have to divert time away from real issues to talk about a smear job.

Whatever happened to true journalists like Edward R. Murrow, who would have devoted a significant bit of time to call out this bullshit, just like he did to Senator Joseph McCarthy.

With the crop of "journalists" we have now, McCarthy would probably be canonized.

LGBT For Obama - an excellent site.
