Alan Skorski's Blasphemy: A quick Look At a Bad Book
I had the chance to check out Alan Skorski's new book Pants on Fire: How Al Franken Lies, Smears and Deceives. The reason I knew about the book was an item on Media Matters for America's website that reported on how when The Situation host Tucker Carlson asked Skorski for examples of Franken's alleged dishonesty, the two examples Skorski gave were false.

I simply don't have the time to give a full review for Skorski's book (the book also doesn't deserve much attention), but it's pretty thin stuff. One thing I noticed in the Media Matters article that piqued my curiosity was that the book was published by WND Books, a division of WorldNetDaily, a wing-nut web site that carries the writings of Hal Lindsey and thief Jerry Falwell. WorldNetDaily is run by Joseph Farah, one of the main players behind the Scaife-funded attempts to implicate the Clintons in the tragic death of Vince Foster (click here for a post that give more details about Farah's involvement in this tawdry scheme). Farah also was a major proponent of Scaife's paranoid urban legend, the Clinton Body Count (click here for a Farah article on it--this guy is completely nuts).

Because the book was published by Farah, it didn't surprise me when I read the book's acknowledgements. Skorski writes, "First I have to thank G-d for giving me the strength needed to overcome the hurdles we all go through in life." It struck me as ironic that Skorski uses the word "G-d" instead of "God"--apparently out of reverence for the Almighty. However, it is blasphemous for someone to thank God for such a slanted book (the two examples of Franken's alleged dishonesty that were debunked by the Media Matters article are in the book). Also, it is an affront to God to also include thanks to lowlifes like Farah and David Bossie (click here and here for brief primers on Bossie; be prepared to throw up).

What are Franken's lies according to Skorski? Well, once Franken applauded former Senator Max Cleland for his military sacrifices and mistakenly said that it was a Viet Cong grenade that badly injured Cleland, not one from a fellow American soldier. In Skorski's mind, that is a lie for which Franken should be excoriated. That's about the best Skorski can do. Ironically, Skorski devoted a chapter of the book defending Ann Coulter (e.g., Skorski defended Coulter's assertion that "liberals hate America"), even though Coulter not only was wrong about the circumstances behind Cleland's injuries but she also denigrated Cleland's service record.
