    It's ridiculous that people jump so quickly to law suits. It's satire, get over it.

    If you thought birther conspiracy theorists went the way of Donald Trump's presidential hopes, think again.

    Joseph Farah--who runs the World Net Daily website and a related book imprint--and Jerome Corsi, author of "Where's the Birth Certificate? The Case That Barack Hussein Obama Is Not Eligible to Be President," held a press conference in Washington, D.C., yesterday to announce that they have filed a lawsuit against Esquire magazine and its owner, Hearst, over an satirical article by Mark Warren published last month.

    I was pretty sure satire was protected. I don't see this case getting very far.

    These idiots are just looking to stay in the limelight.

    They had to find a deep pocket to recoup their losses, though I'm sure, somehow, the book will still find an audience.

    I tried to read Cori's book "Obamination" and got like, three paragraphs in. He writes like a 7th grader, or like Stephanie Meyer, even. Repetitive, switches perspective, never quite closes out a point....

    Some people should either hire ghost writers or not write at all.

    I like your description! I've read a few of his articles on WND, they were a slog.

    I've read young-adult fiction that was better structured than Corsi's stuff. It's hard to take him seriously because of it.

    Well they need to make money somehow. It sure wasn't going to be from book sales after Obama completely deflated their opportunity by releasing his long form certificate (which he was holding in his back pocket for 3 years now).
