Hello. Come on in. The daddy writes about current events, literature, music and, once in a while, drops something on you from back in the day to make you pause and ponder, stop and stare, and begin to wonder. Who knows? You may start to pace the floor, shake your head from side to side, then fall down on bended knees in a praying position and cry, "Lawd, have mercy! What is this world coming to?" Check yourself! But this blog is NOT about the daddy. It's about you: your boos, your fam, your hood, your country...our hopes and dreams of a better tomorrow. So let's make a pact: the daddy will put it on the track if you'll chase it down and hit him back. Together, we can definitely take it to another level. Shall we?"

Obama Punches Back Hard Against Corsi Smears

The daddy's feeling this article from Huffington Post about the Obama campaign fighting back against "Obama Nation," the hatchet job called a book written by Jerome Corsi, right-wing Republican and original swift-boater of Sen. John Kerry:

Obama Punches Back Hard
Against Corsi Smears

by Seth Colter Walls

As promised, Barack Obama's campaign is hitting back hard against smear author Jerome Corsi's New York Times best-selling book The Obama Nation.

In an exhaustive 41-page PDF document entitled Unfit for Publication -- a riff on Corsi's 2004 Unfit for Command, which targeted John Kerry -- the campaign documents every false claim they have been able to find in Corsi's current tome. No matter how small the error, including the year the Obamas married, the campaign has taken time to correct the record.

Clearly, the cumulative effect is meant as a kind of rhetorical "shock and awe" campaign against Corsi, who is described in the prelude of Unfit for Publication as "a discredited, fringe bigot" who "believes that President Bush is trying to merge the United states with Mexico and Canada," in addition to holding other conspiracy theories."

All lies and they need a proof reader, because they can't even get their facts straight.

These wide spread tales of this bullshit surrounding seem to never cease.

Whether it was inspired by this asshole or not- I had an argument with a fellow worker about Obama. First, she starts in on how Obama won't swear on a Bible because he doesn't believe in God. Then he's a radical Muslim "sleeper" who's apparently going to sell us all out to "terrorists". Then it's Reverend Wright and the "black radical" church Obama attended. This is all in one conversation.

I finally had to break down and ask, "well, which is it? Is he an atheist, a Muslim, or a radical black Christian? "Cuz, he can't be all three."

She makes a sour face, "Well, I don't care because I'm not voting for him." It's no damn wonder this country is in the shape it's in.

Funny how some folks only pop up when there's an opportunity to create controversy. Sort of the equivalent to an ambulance chaser. To Corsi I say...don't hate!

rainywalker: True.
elvis: Man, the things you sometimes have to listen to. It's not like you could just walk out and start your vacation.
Who'sthatgurl:That is funny how people just happen to pop up every presidential lesson and write a book filled with lies and innuendo. Of course, it helps you to pick up some chump change when the New York Times puts you #1 on their best seller list. I still love your blog.

Daddy, thanks for the post.
Elvis, I'm feeling for you with having co-workers who have limited ability or interest in facts, and trying to understand things that differ from them. I've been there many times. You'd think logic would work, but they tend to cling to their viewpoint dogmatically.
There are some awfully hard heads and cold hearts out there.

I'm not feeling what I am hearing about the Democratic National Convention, Daddy. I'm not hearing that Senator Obama intends to put his varsity on the field. I may be premature, but it looks like he's suiting up the second stringers. I hope I'm premature. I hope I'm wrong. Anyway, I have to go out now. Hope the news is better when I get back.
