Swift Boat Author Smears Self

Right-wing attack-dog journalist Jerome Corsi, whose controversial book, “Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry,” helped sink Sen. John Kerry’s presidential hopes in 2004 and whose similarly incendiary attack on Sen. Barack Obama, “The Obama Nation,” is now on sale, reveals in his new unauthorized autobiography that he liked pulling wings off flies as a boy, stole his grandmother’s dentures on her deathbed and almost never changes his underwear.

Corsi portrays himself as a secretive, dishonest, calculating physical coward who pretended to be the Count of Monte Cristo to avoid military service and once robbed a nun.

In the book’s most sensational admission, the author claims that he has uncovered documents showing that he may have sold a used car to Osama bin Laden in 1986 — a lemon, he admits, that might well have been what turned bin Laden so viciously anti-capitalist and anti-Western.

In another astonishing revelation, Corsi tells how he sold his baby sister to the gypsies to get money to finance a plot to sabotage his hometown 4-H Club. “I’m not proud of that,” he says. “I way undercharged.”

“My slime-ball, truth-twisting antics,” Corsi writes in his epilogue, “disqualify me even as a shameless hack writer peddling dollar-a-page drivel. But the thing about me is, I’m an oily creep and I don’t give a —–.”

His next written effort, Corsi notes, involves hatchet jobs on all six of the most prominent Democratic vice presidential candidates, “just to be ready.”

Corsi needs and deserves this — and more of it. Bruce McCall, thank you. Would it be possible, I wonder, to purchase billboards going into St. Paul with Corsi’s picture framed by quotes from this “autobiographical” rendering?

Why are people allowed to throw crap around about people and get away with it. If you or I would attact someone and it’s not true we would find ourself in court. How can they get away with it? Where is our country going with the type of people writing trash?

This aricle is a bunch of bunk. I personally know Jerome Corsi as a man of integrity. ALL his books are nothing more than the REAL FACTS and pure documentation….NOT mere opinion. Hey! The TRUTH hurst doesn't it?!
His books are ALL “BEST SELLERS”. His book…”THE LATE GREAT USA”…was 90% documentation downloaded by way of the Freedom of Information Act, for the typical layperson to understand. The 'republicrat' globalists ARE selling America out with a proposed NORTH AMERICAN UNION scheme and Superhighway scheme. The CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) globalists are the REAL TRAITORS behind this scheme. Jerome Corsi is a real patriot in exposing this danger and, the dangers that both Juan McAmnesty McCain and OBAMANATION are trying to cram down the throats of the American people. YOU can waste YOUR one precious vote on “tweedle-Dee and tweedle-dum”….but, as for ME and many others, we will be voting for another great patriot, who has been endorsed by his friend RON PAUL…CHUCK BALDWIN, of the Constitution party.
