Well cut off my legs and call me shorty! Jerome Corsi actually quotes yours truly in his new book Where’s the Birth Certificate? (# 139 on Amazon.com today). Writing on page 73, Corsi said:
“Even loyal Obama supporters, such as “Dr. Conspiracy” posting on the pro-Obama Web site ObamaConspiracy.org, have been forced to admit that the existence of Sun Yat-Sen’s Hawaii birth certificate “remains as an indictment of the reliability of Hawaiian birth certificates.”
Since Corsi didn’t ask permission to use my quote, I won’t ask his permission to use his either. Mine comes from a February 2009 article, Hawaiian Birth Certificate: It’s a fraud! Back in the early days, this blog had a more sensationalist style. The remark Corsi quoted was a wisecrack. It was meant to be so absurd that no one would take it seriously. I never gave any significance to the Sun Yat-Sen certificate beyond the fact that it demonstrates that it is possible, in any jurisdiction, for someone to obtain a birth certificate through fraud. However, the fact that the birthers could come with only one example of fraud in over 100 years, and none since statehood also speaks volumes about the real reliability of Hawaiian vital records.
I hope (vainly) that readers of Corsi’s book will check out the full article because it is very informative on this Sun Yat-Sen incident.

Maybe I need to get back to work on my article linking Jerome Corsi to Arab oil interests.
