"I'm fixing a hole where my brain fell in..."

"...that stopped my mind from functioning..." (apologies to Sgt. Pepper and his Lonely Hearts Club Band)

That really should be Jerome Corsi's theme song, and it should be played really LOUD every time he walks on camera. It must be great to be a wingnut welfare recipient like Corsi: no real talent is required, there are no corporate ethics manuals to bother with, plus you get treated by media flaks with the utmost respect as a serious writer/scholar/journalist even after it's been proven that all you really did was pull shit out of your ass and smear it on 8.5 by 11 sheets instead of Charmin. No matter how many times your lying bullshit is swatted dead like a fat, buzzing blue-bottle, FOX and Rush and Savage and Beck will keep having you on to lie and lie again. And as a bonus, you get paid to do it! Of course, you have to check your soul at the front door, but who cares? You never really had one to begin with.

BTW - If you click the link to Media Matters, you'll notice Corsi and his accommodating FOX host, Steve Douchey (err.. Doocy) seated on a tete-a-tete having a pleasant chat, like two old friends. Notably absent: anyone offering an opposing viewpoint.

Media Matters - Corsi's claim that Obama posted "false, fake birth certificate" flatly rejected by Hawaii Health Department
On the August 15 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends, Jerome Corsi, author of The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality, claimed that the campaign of Sen. Barack Obama "has a false, fake birth certificate posted on their website." In fact, the Hawaii Department of Health has confirmed that the birth certificate posted online by the Obama campaign is "a valid Hawaii state birth certificate" and has called the speculation about Obama's citizenship "pretty ridiculous."
