Joseph Farah Threatens to Sue Esquire over Birth Certificate Parody Post
The death of World Net Daily editor Joseph Farah’s doubts about the legitimacy of President Barack Obama’s birth certificate has been greatly exaggerated.
In an interview with TPM, Farah confirmed he’s still on the “birther” crusade and said he might sue Esquire over a satirical article that said otherwise.
The magazine’s parody claimed that Farah was recalling the WND-published book Where’s the Birth Certificate? The Case that Barack Obama is not Eligible to be President, by Dr. Jerome Corsi, and giving refunds to anyone who already purchased a copy.
“Don’t believe everything you read,” Farah said in an interview with TPM on Wednesday.
“The only hint at the parody was the made up name of Jeri’s book about the moon landing or something, and I had to do a double take and read it two or three times in astonishment before I even caught that,” Farah said.
Everyone who ever wrote about the birth certificate issue in any depth saw this coming. The new Party Line at WND is that the long form birth certificate released by Obama is a fake. No matter what documentation is released it will be inadequate for those committed to this crusade. There’s really not much left to say about the subject.
