We Don’t Need Jerome Corsi

I have heard Jerome Corsi speak on his new book, “Obama Nation,” several times now.  Truthfully, I wish he would just go away.  We don’t need him.

I haven’t read his book, and I will not.  I am not saying he did not have right to write it, and I am not disputing any of his findings.  I don’t care enough to do any of the above.

This kind of politics, in my opinion, shows weakness.  It says that we don’t believe that on our merits we are good enough to beat them.  It is the same “crashing the gates,” Daily Kos maturity level that makes running for political office less honorable than it should be.  It is tired, it is pointless, it doesn’t add to the debate, and in the long run it doesn’t amount to anything other than a man using the electoral process to earn a buck.  Trust me, Jerome isn’t putting anyone but Jerome first.

Those who believe George W. Bush had a second term because of Swift Boat ads should check their insecurity at the door.  He won because Karl Rove ran a better campaign.  He won because the American people trusted him more.  He won because he was more consistent on the issues.  He won because in a time of national security crisis, the American people will always choose the Republican Party. 

John McCain is capable of winning this election because he is more qualified to be the President of the United States, and he is right on the issues.  If we don’t believe that, then we should stop trying.  Resorting to gutter politics is beneath us.  I’d rather lose an election.

UPDATE

Jon Henkel agrees:

The continued tolerance and prominence of Jerome Corsi – his books, columns and appearances – is just embarrassing.  It is embarrassing for the Right, embarrassing for Republicans, embarrassing for conservatives and libertarians, embarrassing for all of us.
