The punishment phase

I did the crime: I bought a copy of the book by Corsi and Zullo, A Question of Eligibility: A Law Enforcement Investigation into Barack Obama’s Birth Certificate and His Eligibility to be President. Up until now, I have only bought used copies of Corsi’s books.

It is an act that I said I would not do, but I didn’t see any way out. I can’t review a book I haven’t read, and now that John Woodman’s review has been scrubbed from Amazon.com, someone needs to do an authoritative review for them. Amazon has a new feature whereby a product review is further annotated when Amazon can verify that you actually bought the product, and to borrow the book somehow, wouldn’t add this extra mark of veracity.

Now I enter the punishment phase: I’m sentenced to read the book.

    They also serve who read and weep.

    You were defrauded. Reviews on the Fogbow show that, out of less than 60 pages total, a large majority of them are copied from previous articles available on WND.

    I thought I had Michael Zullo booked on RC Radio tomorrow night. That was until he consulted his puppet master Jerome Corsi today. http://rcradioblog.wordpress.com/2012/03/05/michael-zullo-is-afraid-to-appear-on-rc-radio/

    What a coward but why would the leader of an independent investigation take marching orders from a journalist?

    Aha book sales… Is that it?

    Dr C:

    I think the proper phrase is, “Paper To Raise Whelps With.” Coffee helps. And think Happy Thoughts. You could be stuck in Apuzzo land.

    Doc, it’s the only way to short-circuit the Amazon birther defenses and have a chance to engage in a discussion. Without the “verified purchase” deal (that feature is about 2 years old or so), they’ll just accuse you having not read the book or even being in possession of a copy. Even if you quote the entire book to them! Of course, that doesn’t work because they haven’t read it either! LOL!

    It’s your money and you can spend it any way you want, but when your wife starts referring to you as “that bearded fellow that eats here”, you might consider some professional help.

    Your sacrifice is greatly appreciated, not that I would have ever bought the thing.
