Ed pimps a new book about Obama (The Manhcurian something or other), then drops this load:
I just received my copy of the book and will try to complete reading it before Aaron appears on The Ed Morrissey Show this week to discuss the book. The book follows the efforts of David Freddoso’s The Case Against Barack Obama (reviewed here) and Jerome Corsi’s Obama Nation. Both of those books shed light on Obama’s past political associations and efforts, but didn’t get as much traction as they deserved, thanks to a wave of popular support for Obama.
Yes. That Jerome Corsi. The birther. The 9/11 truther. Obama Nation was the book that was so riddled with falsehoods and outright lies that virtually everyone in the press mocked it, including Pete Wehner AND the National Review. Here is a 41 page dissection of Corsi’s lies (.pdf). Here is Ross Douthat. Here is Jon Henke.
There are few people with less credibility on any subject than Jerome Corsi. I guess Captain Ed is angling to be one of them.
In for a penny, in for a pound, eh, Ed? I knew I shouldn’t have taken a break from doing yard work.
