Obama Nation

I am currently listening to the book Obama Nation. (It isn’t worth the time it takes to read it, I can listen faster.) The author (Jerome Corsi of swift boat fame) is a certifiable loon, and the Obama team does an ok job of discussing the source. Obama Nation gives you some perspective on his history, but if a biographer/historian can’t get basic facts right, how can you trust the bigger facts? It’s worth a read before November (then send it straight to Half-Price Books), but not without this document from the Obama camp: http://obama.3cdn.net/a74586f9067028c40a_5km6vrqwa.pdf
