Wear the Birth Certificate

Esquire exclusively reports breaking news about The Anticlimactic Book of the Millennium:

In a stunning development one day after the release of Where’s the Birth Certificate? The Case that Barack Obama is not Eligible to be President, by Dr. Jerome Corsi, World Net Daily Editor and Chief Executive Officer Joseph Farah has announced plans to recall and pulp the entire 200,000 first printing run of the book, as well as announcing an offer to refund the purchase price to anyone who has already bought either a hard copy or electronic download of the book.

Only Esquire, is, y’know, kidding. And the elderly-woman-stalking WND is not amused:

“Let me say this very clearly: There is not a single word of that report that is true. I assume it is a very poorly executed parody. In any case, I have begun exploring our legal options, since this report has all the earmarkings of a deliberate attempt at restraint of trade, not to mention libel.”

Meanwhile, the Obama campaign has revealed a wicked sense of humor — that’s the long-form certificate on the back, if you can’t make it out. Maybe not worth a $25 donation, but we’ll tip our hat.


I think we could do a much better parody, with Farah forcing Corsi to eat the books at gun point, then forcing him to cut off his own toes and use the stubs to write on a wall over and over again, “fact checking is not a liberal affectation” in blood.

@nojo: Fact-Checking is a Conservative Value.

Fact-checking is for fairies.

But loving the ‘libel’ angle. Oh wait, the clue-phone’s ringing…

Why is the banner ad giving us Loligoth Clothing all of a sudden? Did those secret pictures of Benedick surface while I was away?

@Tommmcatt Be Fat, And That Be That: Righteous! (He’ll just come back with some assless chaps retort.)

Oh wait, that’s a real shirt? I may have to get it…
