New Book Swiftboats Obama; No 1 in NYTimes Bestseller List

Jerome Corsi, the author of 2004′s “Unfit for Command” that placed the phrase “swiftboarting” into political lexicon, has penned a new attack book aimed at Senator Barack Obama.  The book, “Obamanation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality” is number 1 on the New York Times bestseller list and contains all of the fact-based in-depth reporting that Corsi’s swiftbook book contains (which is to say, there’s considerable documented evidence to refute many of Corsi’s claims).

Media Matters, a media watchdog, has this post that fact checks a number of issues in the book already.

Even better; the mMediaMatters post has Dr. Corsi’s email address so you can tell him exactly how you feel about his new book.

    The Republican Party seems to have no trouble finding people to devote their time and energy to hate.
