The Corsi(can) Footnotes

Examples are provided in the following paragraph.

Unfit for Publication: Swiftboater Book 'The Obama Nation' Filled with Falsehoods | Media and Technology | AlterNet
In the preface of his recently released book, The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality, author Jerome Corsi writes: "My intent1 in writing this book2, as was the case in coauthoring3 Unfit for Command, is to fully document4 all arguments and contentions I make, extensively footnoting5 all references, so readers can determine for themselves the truth6 and validity7 of the factual claims8." Indeed, Corsi's comparison of the two books seems quite apt: Just as Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry contains false and baseless attacks on Sen. John Kerry's military service, a Media Matters for America review finds that Obama Nation similarly contains numerous falsehoods about Sen. Barack Obama.
