Jerry Corsi -- or, as he's generally known in the press, Dr. Jerome Corsi -- has gotten lots of attention in recent days. The author of The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality, a big-selling hit piece on Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama that Time magazine describes as "factually challenged," was deported from Kenya, where he'd gone to dig up more anti-Obama dirt. According to Time, the Kenyan government made its move (ostensibly because Corsi didn't have a proper work permit) before the good doctor "was scheduled to give a press conference at which he promised to expose secret ties between Obama and Kenyan leaders, as well as a mysterious plot that would be launched should the Democratic nominee win the U.S. election." No word if black helicopters were involved.
At any rate, Corsi's first major interview since getting the heave-ho was with an unlikely media figure: KHOW's Peter Boyles, who's hosted Corsi on his show many times over the years. Click here to check out their conversation (the link is about midway down the page on the left), in which Corsi makes Dan Caplis, KHOW's resident Obama hater, seem almost objective -- "almost" being the operative word. And click "More" to see an Associated Press video about Corsi's ouster from Kenya. -- Michael Roberts
