17 Year Old Fact Check ‘Errors’

I’ve drawn some trolling ire on Twitter, email and the like for my comparison of Obama and the Kenya pamphlet with Elizabeth Warren’s Cherokee claims. Apparently, the Left still has no sense of humor and I’m a horrid, racist South Carolinian for making fun of the situation in a post I made yesterday:

Dear Metro Jerry –

You know what happens when you assume, right?

P.S. I laughed really hard at the irony of your attempt to shame me. Why would South Carolina be racist exactly? You must be related to Bev Perdue.



And no, I won’t be apologizing. It was funny, get over yourself.  Shove your political correctness somewhere ‘Forward’.

Well, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s look at the ‘evolving’ pamphlet story with some updates:

Oh, it was a big mistake:

Literary Agent Says 1991 Booklet was a Mistake

I found that statement from Goderich to be rather vague so I asked her about it. No reply of course. A lot of folks were left asking, “Where did she come up with the tidbit on Kenya?

But they fixed it right after Obama was announcing he would run:

Obama’s Kenya-Born Bio Was Only Corrected in April 2007

So, let me get this straight… it was a mere fact checking error never caught until two months after Obama announced his run – 17 years later. We’re not supposed to ask about it or we’re racist or we’re drumming up that old ‘birther’ stuff again. We’re just supposed to believe this agency never ran it by Obama and that it’s all just a silly mistake on a little promotional pamphlet. Got it.

Now, back to that ocean front property I can sell you in Colorado…


A ‘Fact Checking Error’? Dystel & Goderich Ask Writers to Submit Their Own Bios

Submission guidelines at the Dystel & Goderich website (original emphasis): “[Y]ou should describe in two or three sentences—no more—what the book will be about. This is followed by another brief paragraph on why it is being written and then another on why you are qualified to write it….Finally, there should be a more formal narrative Bio of the author.”

Oops. Keep reading

Another Update:

It would seem this ‘fact checking error’ was limited to just the pamphlet but “through at least three different versions of Jane Dystel’s website, and through at least four different versions of Obama’s biography.

  1. LOL.

    Oh come on, you know how it works. The real meaning of racism, ie, thinking someone is inferior b/c of their pigment, no longer applies. The new meaning of racism, a la Teh Left, is daring to point out any truth in an amusing fashion that alludes to any ethnicity or sex or religion at all, UNLESS it’s a white Christian American, preferably Southern, and preferaby male, but you will do in a pinch, huh? Ha!

    That’s the definition that allows “Debbie Spend It Now” to be declared racist, even though the subject lady, Debbie, isn’t even Asian, and even though the joke was not meant to imply that Asians are inferior by virtue of their race.

    I actually had to think this thru, once, b/c I was so confused by all the accusations of racism. And thinking thru leftist logic hurts the brain!

    Because your reference to “Baracka Zulu” was merely pointing out the fact that he once put on the Kenyan identity in a false manner in order to market himself, just like Warren did with the Native American identity, your joke is quite funny and un-racist, just like “Fauxahontas.”

    Whew. Sorry for the tedious analysis, which totally ruins good comedy, of course. But just in case a Leftist wanders over, I thought I could hold their hand and walk them thru a little logic.



    • HEH – you got it in an instant what I was going for. Silly Liberal only saw the surface. Typical. I get called a nasty name at least once a day….means I’m doing something right!

      Thanks for the comment, it was a welcome addition to the post!
