Yglesias Award Nominee

"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.

It's not just that he's frequently, remarkably wrong - something pretty well documented and acknowledged by both the Left and (while less enthusiastically) the Right (and the Obama campaign (PDF), of course). Both the Obama campaign and Hugh Hewitt acknowledge that Jerome Corsi is "fringe"...

I mean, c'mon.  Have some standards.  This guy does not deserve the platform, he does not deserve the publicity, and he does not deserve to be treated as member-in-good-standing on the Right.

The Right seems to engage today in social promotion of hatchet men, bullies and political hit men.  Those people poison the Right, and - whatever their temporary electoral effects - they serve to discredit us all," - John Henke.
