Birthers sue Esquire for satire piece.
Joseph Farah--who runs the World Net Daily website and a related book imprint--and Jerome Corsi, author of "Where's the Birth Certificate? The Case That Barack Hussein Obama Is Not Eligible to Be President," held a press conference in Washington, D.C., yesterday to announce that they have filed a lawsuit against Esquire magazine and its owner, Hearst, over an satirical article by Mark Warren published last month.
"This was a serious mistake by Mark Warren and Esquire for which they will pay dearly," Larry Klayman, lawyer for the plaintiffs, said. "It was obviously calculated with malice to destroy not just the book and its sales, but the reputations of Mr. Corsi and Mr. Farah."
When you think these people can't go any lower, they do. First off, "where's the birth certificate?" I think Obama already answered that with "here it is!" Second, if you are going to sue someone for losing money, don't sue Esquire, sue Obama for fuck sake. His exposure of his full birth certificate undermines your entire book, so he is the sole reason your book will lose money.
But this is a moot point, Corsi and Farah are just idiots, along side every birther out there. If rational thought didn't prevent them from writing the book in the first place, it's not going to prevent them from suing to get some money out of the deal. And this is by the way as frivolous as you get when it comes to lawsuits, something I thought conservatives opposed. If there is any justice, the judge will throw this case out before Esquire spends a penny defending themselves.
"There was nothing stating that it was satire."
Just in case I get sued, I'm labeling this post "satire" to protect myself from the stupid idiot goon squad.
