(Originally posted Tuesday, August 19, 2008 ) A new spurious title has emerged, entitled "Obama Nation," by notorious author Jerome Corsi, whose profile on John Kerry, "Unfit for Command," was a flashpoint of controversy in 2004 for its many inaccuracies and falsehoods and for its blatant pandering to a radicalized political base of right-wingers even as it was being advertised as the modest book of an academic.
What new bombshells does Corsi uncover about Barack Obama?

--*Obama's name is frequently found in the same sentence with the word Islam. Source: Corsi. "It's right there in that sentence I just wrote," writes Corsi about Obama and Islam. "Look, there it is again."
--*Obama's name is frequently found in the same sentence with former Weather Underground radical William Ayres. Source: Corsi. See last entry for proof of how this works.
--*Right wingers agree that Obama was in the pews when his pastor, Jeremiah Wright, made incendiary statements about white America. These right wingers' agreeing with each other obviates their having to actually do any research on the matter or look anything up, like the actual truth on the matter, which is that Obama wasn't anywhere near the place.
Other things right wingers are sure about after checking with each other: Hillary Clinton killed friend Vince Foster by bludgeoning him to death with a wiffle bat; U.N. black helicopters are peeking into your house; the French are cheese eating surrender monkeys; and we must all beware the maurauding, goat-sucking vampire dog known as "chupacabra."
