On the Trail

Book attacking Obama makes the bestseller list

August 12, 2008|Kate Linthicum

Right-wing author Jerome Corsi hit it big in 2004 with a book attacking John F. Kerry.

"Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry" soared to No. 1 on the New York Times bestseller list.

Now Corsi has done it again -- taking aim at a different Democratic presidential candidate.

Corsi's latest, "The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality," will top the Aug. 17 New York Times hard-cover nonfiction bestseller list.

The book lashes out at Barack Obama and alleges, among other things, that the politician has a secret radical Islamic agenda.

But being No. 1 doesn't necessarily mean being accurate. Obama is a Christian.
