Responding to the rather odd book that is the number one best seller at present the Obama campaign says:

A spokesman said: “Once again, bigoted fringe author Jerome Corsi is trying to make money off of an election,

And in a capitalist nation the problem with this is what?

  1. Nothing wrong in making money from a book, but should there not be some mechanism which involves truth and accuracy ? I know it can all be challenged in the courts, but that is after the damage has been done.

  2. “but should there not be some mechanism which involves truth and accuracy ?”

    The book is about a politician. 😉

  3. Of course politicians never profit financially from elections. Ex-Presidents and ex-PMs always donate all those fat fees they get on the lecture circuit (after they’ve done their term) to charity, don’t they?

  4. Well the book is so factually inaccurate it’s laughable. The plain & simple lies, such as Obama didn’t dedicate his book to any of his family or that he attended this or that radical sermon (when he was actually at the opposite end of the US on that day), are easily debunked. It would be very difficult indeed to argue that the writer did any research whatsoever.

    However, as Alan Douglas remarks above, in many cases “the damage has been done.”

    It should also be noted that the sales figures are highly questionable, as it appears sales have been in colossal bulk orders by conservative groups, suggesting a deliberate skewing of the numbers. The NYT is questioning the placement.

    This is common practice. Republican groups buy huge quantities of a book to raise its profile, and then offer them as gifts to email subscribers.

    Nothing to stop Democrat groups from doing the same, is there?

    *slaps forehead* Oh, of course there is! They only like spending other people’s money…

  6. Dear Senator Obama, do remember that the Republicans are only your opponents. The Clintons are your enemies.
