We Don't Go By Your Douchebag Rules Here

Remember the story nobody care about? The one some asshole named Jerome Corsi wrote an entire book about? Neither do I, but it was about how Obama was all for killing infants. Apparently it was his hobby, or something. At least that's what Corsi said.
Corsi's book — titled "The Obama Nation; Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality" — portrays Obama as an untrustworthy radical seething with "black rage," and rehashes a host of false claims about Obama, including that he was raised a Muslim.
I love "black rage" myself. I usually have it with a nice Merlot. Anyway, Jerome was headed for Kenya today to promote his book. (note to promoter: Kenya not a book buying hot spot) But poor Jerome didn't make it into Kenya, because he was detained at the airport and then booted from the country.
Jerome Corsi, the controversial author of a much-criticized book slamming Sen. Barack Obama, was detained in Kenya on Tuesday for an immigration violation as he arrived for a press conference to promote his book.

Authorities in Kenya, where Obama's father was born, said Corsi had entered the country as a tourist and wasn't allowed to work here. A Kenyan aide to Corsi said that he was en route to the airport Tuesday evening and would be deported.

So sad. He had such awesome plans for his trip.

An e-mail sent to Kenyan journalists before Tuesday's book launch said that Corsi would "expose details of deep secret ties" between Obama and certain Kenyan government officials as well as a "subsequent plot to be executed in Kenya" if Obama is elected president.

The e-mail also claimed that Corsi planned to meet Obama's half-brother, George, who lives in a Nairobi slum, and present him with a $1,000 check from Joseph Farah, founder of the conservative WorldNetDaily.com website.

The Standard, one of Kenya's leading daily newspapers, described Corsi's visit in Tuesday morning's editions as "a smear crusade" that "makes no secret of the intention to hurl dirt at Obama and undermine his campaign from his ancestral home."

Now we'll never know. A sad day for knowledge.
