'Unfit' Author Corsi to Run vs. Kerry
Newsmax ^ | 1/25/05 | staff

Posted on 01/25/2005 10:33:36 AM PST by pissant

The Swift Boat Veterans for Truth are credited with bringing John Kerry's real Vietnam war record to light, and now one of the authors of Unfit for Command, Jerome Corsi, says he's going to move to the Back Bay so he can challenge Sen. Kerry for his seat in Congress.

"I'm going to do it," said Corsi. "I've got serious political aspirations now."

Corsi, 58, is not a veteran, but he co-authored the book (that NewsMax helped to make a bestseller) with John O'Neill, that, along with the TV ads from the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, helped expose the real John Kerry to millions of voters.

Now, Corsi hopes to get some of those voters in one of the nation's most liberal states on his side.

"It may be time for a conservative movement to take hold in Massachusetts," Corsi said.

A managing partner in the U.S. Financial Marketing Group, Corsi - who got his PhD from Harvard, a hop skip and a jump from Boston, will sell his part of the company and devote his time to a political career.

He wants to run as a Republican, but told the Boston Herald that if he doesn't get financial backing from the Grand Old Party, he'll just run as an Independent.

And, he says he'll run even if Kerry doesn't.

Corsi is a bit of a controversial figure, even without his Kerry book. Corsi has posted comments on the FreeRepublic website where he reportedly called Islam "a cancer that destroys the body it infects," and called the pope "senile," all of which he claims were meant to be satirical.

The chair of the Mass. Democratic Party Phil Johnston was not amused, or enthused. "I know Massachusetts will not welcome a candidate whose calling card is a disturbing track record of slandering Catholics, the pope, Jews and Vietnam veterans. Carpetbaggers spreading lies and smears are not welcome in our state," he told the Herald.

Kerry's spokespeople had no comment, saying Kerry was too busy with his work in the Senate ... which we can understand. He must have a lot to catch up on, since he essentially took the last two years off to run for president.

now I bet the DD214 (or whatever) gets signed, and we get to the bottom of the "mystery of the impossible combinations of medals and devices".

A Freeper in the senate would be the best thing since Jessie Helms.

Corsi should not have any trouble raising money for his run.

Slander Catholics? Kerry wants to kill them, at least allow their mothers to kill them, if they have not yet traveled the birth canal. And non-Catholics too. He's not particular, at least since his own mother didn't make that choice.

He has no chance of winning. You have to be to the left of Fidel Castro to win in Massachusetts.

Well, if he can prove what a fraud Kerry is, then it will be well worth it. There ain't no other pubbie that has a chance to beat him anyway.

It would be nice if he was proved to be the traitor we all know that he is. Then Kerry would have to give up the Senate seat. You cannot hold public office and be guilty of treason.

It's about time we got a Freeper in the senate. Those old nags need a serious hiding.

If we get a freeper in, we'll only need to send 99 pairs of Neuticles to the Senate.

"With the appropriate sentence of capital punishment."

Put him in front of the FReeper firing squad! Or better yet, let the Viet Nam Vets have him. Let them get their revenge for the pain and ridicule he caused them.

That's REALY funny, coming from a guy who's party which is built on trashing Catholics, the pope, Jews (well, Israelis, anyway), and Vietnam Veterans. Hey, this statement might win Corsi some Democrat votes...
