Yes, today's Republicans are like this

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) posts on their Hatewatch blog: Bestselling Anti-Obama Fabulist Appears On White Supremacist Radio Show 08/13/08. That would be Swiftboater Jerome Corsi, whose tendentious book Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality was published by Republican strategist and TV pundit Mary Matalin. (Something to think about the next time you see that oh-so-cute husband-and-wife schtick with her and James Carville.) SPLC reports:

That his book is rife with inaccuracies hasn't stopped Corsi from promoting it on dozens of talk shows, where he has peddled additional falsehoods about Obama. On Fox News' Hannity’s America, for instance, he made the ludicrous claim that Obama supports abortion "after a child's born."

Perhaps Corsi’s most telling appearance, however, has been on The Political Cesspool, an overtly racist, anti-Semitic radio show hosted by self-avowed white nationalist James Edwards. Corsi was interviewed on the Cesspool on July 20 and is scheduled to appear again this Sunday, August 17, joining a recent guest roster that has included Christian Identity pastor Pete Peters, Holocaust denier Mark Weber and former Klan boss David Duke.
Very classy, those Republicans.

FEATURED QUOTE

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
