You can put slime between covers and it's still slime

The Swiftboaters are at it again, and despite the fact that their word and their work against John Kerry has been discredited time and again, Jerome Corsi, one of the prime slimers, is out with an anti-Obama book. The book, filled with inaccuracies and innuendo, is at the top of the New York Times best seller list, but as Media Matters points out, sales are spurred by bulk sales to right wing organizations and mailing lists. To make the number one spot on the list, only 5000 hardcover copies need to be sold, then it can be trumpeted as NY Times bestseller, and pushed to the unsophisticated masses. One can imagine many unread copies on otherwise empty bookshelves, with most right-wingers getting their quotations from Fox News. MediaMatters tears the book apart.

A (swift) boat full of slime.... Does this guy actually believe what he's saying? It sure doesn't seem like it.
