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