Bottom of the Birther Barrel

Just when you think Mitt Romney can't sink any lower, he manages to outdo himself... this time by inviting right-wing conspiracy-theorist whackaloon Jerome Corsi to join his press corps.

For those unfamiliar with Jerome Corsi's oeuvre, he is a senior writer for right-wing paranoid site World Net Daily, characterized by Salon's Alex Pareene as the biggest, dumbest wingnut site on the web and known pejoratively as World Nut Daily. Corsi is also a staple guest on late night lunatic radio programs.

Corsi first gained notoriety for his slanderous hit piece on John Kerry, and has kept up the sliming during President Obama's term in the White House. He then went full birther boogie on the president and assembled a posse conmantatus to investigate the circumstances of the Kenyan Usurper's birth. Corsi has also written articles and recorded videos claiming that Barack Obama is gay, and was married to a Pakistani man.

Corsi's latest book is a pseudoscientific screed claiming that "abiotic oil" production is feasible... funny how right-wing cranks see no contradictions in citing Soviet authorities or even, at the risk of a Godwin's Law violation, lauding Nazi science.

If Mitt Romney is truly moving toward the center politically, why is he cozying up to a birther, flat-earther right-wing lunatic like Jerome Corsi? Perhaps his failure to gain a real, sustained bump from his "victory" in the first debate (and his son's failure to kill Barack Obama with his preternatural powers) has convinced him to consult one of the most vicious character assassins in the right-wing Legion of Dumb. It's a desperate, despicable act by a guy who's scraping the bottom of the barrel in his campaign for the presidency.

The other son, Tagg, went on the radio and said he wanted to rush the stage and take a swing at Obama.

The boys obviously have the same attitudes toward the help as their Mum and Dad. Bless their hearts.

It's not Willard's LYING that's the issue, it's having one of The Help QUESTION the old prick.

Oh, rest assured, he most certainly is not. He was getting pounded, so he got the double-sekrit okie doke from the rump teabaggers (hey, women have been known to put teabags on their eyes to tighten up the skin, so why not their rumps too?) to sound substantially less fascist and insane. This was fairly easy for a man who has held virtually ever political position known to man over the last ten years - it didn't require a great deal of study.

But make no mistake - the point is to win the election in order to implement the most brutal right-wing policy agenda possible. The deaths or thousands, the collapse of American infrastructure and the ultimate destruction of the global economy are merely side effects, to be mitigated rather than actually concerned about preventing...

I thought Corsi's place was pejoratively known as "Wing Nut Daily"?

I hope Mittens listens carefully to Corsi and Trump -- they're bound to offer him some solid, cogent advice on how to win the right-wing-nutcase base he already has locked up.

Gold's abiotic hypothesis has convinced him that there may be oil there.

Sadly, this probably won't have any effect on not completely delusional people who'll vote for Romney.

Mitt Romney is moving toward anyone who's in front of him at the time.

This is amusing.

Sooooooo Alex Pareene is admitting he's never heard of American Thinker and PJ Media?
