WHY LIE WHEN HIS CANDIDACY CAN'T WITHSTAND THE TRUTH?:
Book on Obama Hopes to Repeat Anti-Kerry Feat (JIM RUTENBERG and JULIE BOSMAN, 8/13/08, NY Times)
In the summer of 2004 the conservative gadfly Jerome R. Corsi shot to the top of the best-seller lists as co-author of “Unfit for Command,” the book attacking Senator John Kerry’s record on a Vietnam War Swift boat that began the larger damaging campaign against Mr. Kerry’s war credentials as he sought the presidency.
Almost exactly four years after that campaign began, Mr. Corsi has released a new attack book painting Senator Barack Obama, the Democrats’ presumed presidential nominee, as a stealth radical liberal who has tried to cover up “extensive connections to Islam” — Mr. Obama is Christian — and questioning whether his admitted experimentation with drugs in high school and college ever ceased. [...]
Mr. Corsi, who has over the years also written critically about Senator John McCain, Mr. Obama’s probable Republican opponent, said he supported the Constitution Party presidential nominee, Chuck Baldwin, and had not been in touch with McCain aides.
It'll come as no surprise that Mr. Corsi is one of those nativist loons who fears a North American Union and the NAFTA Superhighway. Posted by Orrin Judd at August 13, 2008 12:59 PM
