But If You Try Sometime, You Just Might Find, You Get What You Need

Jerome Corsi arrested:

A leading American neo-conservative author has been detained by immigration authorities in Kenya as he tried to launch a book smearing Barack Obama.

Jerome Corsi, of Swift Boat Veterans for Truth fame, was this morning being held after failing to reckon with Obamamania.

He had been planning to launch his book, entitled The Obama Nation Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality, before travelling to one of Nairobi’s slums to donate money to the Senator’s half-brother George, who was found living in squalid conditions two months ago.

But officers swooped hours after Dr Corsi was described as "author of a smear crusade" by local newspapers.

Immigration officials claim he had been detained because he did not have a work permit, however one of Dr Corsi's assistants said he was "just answering some questions".

"We have been given water and are very comfortable," the assistant said.

I'm sure this will be given as perfect evidence that Obama's jack-booted thugs are detaining serious opponents. You know, maybe getting the work permit would have been an option.

There are similar conspiracies running through the rat wheel brains of wingnuts over NBC pulling an SNL sketch off of Hulu - a sketch which is still on YouTube and aired on national television, so I'm missing the "censorship" part. BTW, considering that the sketch, which blamed wealthy Jewish bankers for the economic crisis in extremely familiar terms, approaches defamation, scrubbing the site is probably a good idea from a financial standpoint. Also, George Soros sought to stop the bailout, but you know, never mind.

Conspiracy theories and persecution complexes really are the last refuge for these scoundrels.
