Everyone knew this presidential election was going to be ugly and now the gloves are off. Unable to run on issues, the Republican attack machine is in full swing and as always, we are inundated with endless smears, lies and attacks from a party that is in a steep, painful and very public decline.
Silent Patriot posted yesterday about "author" Jerome Corsi's appearance on Larry King Live where he was dismantled by Media Matters' Paul Waldman. Now, the Obama campaign has responded to Corsi, debunking the staggering number of lies in his book, Obama Nation. Fight The Smears - Unfit for Publication:
