A hatchet job on Obama - from the extremist wing

You might be forgiven for being confused by the title of this post. I'm referring to this book by Jerome Corsi, The Obama Nation (abomination - geddit!?!?!?!?!), which is recieving favourable (if predictable) reviews in respectable quarters. There's also talk of it rocketing to the top of the bestsellers charts. It's an attack on Barack Obama, designed to scupper his campaign for president from the guy who brought you the John Kerry hatchet job during the last election. Ok, so it sounds like it's going to be pretty partisan, but with the reviews and the anticipated sales, what could possibly be extremist about it.............

...........a couple of things is the answer. Corsi is a 9/11 troofer. Oh. Well, er, maybe we can y'know, er gloss over that, after all this is a valuable scholarly endeavour and stuff. Phew, lucky there are no more skeletons in the closet. Exxxxxxxcept, what group is more cretinous, more worthy of contempt than troofers? don't mean Holocaust denial. Yup, that's right. Corsi recently appeared on the radio show of the far right, white-supremacist, virulently anti-semitic radio show "The Political Cesspool". Previous illustrious guests include Holocaust denier Mark Weber. Links from their website include one to the Holocaust denying Institute for Historical Review.

Still, I'm sure right wingers will be happy to ignore all of this, just so long as some shit gets flown at Obama. All for the greater good etc etc.
