The Gay Talese and/or Minka Kelly of World Net Daily by merfam at

We all know that a Pulitzer campaign for World Net Daily is around the corner. Just look at this brave editorial stand of a few weeks ago.

Which leads one to wonder whether Chuck Norris will call up fellow scholar Ted Nugent and discuss their position on this or maybe just the Bowflex:

World Net Daily editor Joseph Farah and author Jerome Corsi have finally made good on their threats and sued Esquire for a satirical article that claimed that they were no longer members of the so-called ‘birther’ movement…

…the suit calls Corsi a “world renowned author” and says WND “competes nationally and internationally” with Esquire.

Yes, they truly compete. Many are the times Americans debate over buying a copy of Esquire versus opening their uncle’s forwarded emails about what recently found Kenyan birth certificates show. Clearly there’s no frivolity here.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
