Who are the most victimized people on the planet? If you answered "the birther lunatics," you would be correct. WorldNetDaily.com writer and birther book publisher Joseph Farahis suing Esquire for $120 million for publishing a parody post reporting that Farah finally decided the whole birther thing was probably just a hollow, exploitative attempt at monetizing the fears of stupid, racist people, and he would be recalling the Jerome Corsi book. Haha, that is ironic and totally implausible, because Joseph Farah loves money. But you know who doesn't understand irony? Birther nutjobs! So they all freaked out and in their typical brainless fashion went and took the books off the shelves.  IT'S ON THE INTERNET IT MUST BE TRUE! It was a sad day for Joseph Farah's bank account, because of irony. 


The Esquire post also says on it: Uh, this is not real, everybody. There is a little "humor" tag at the bottom. Did Joseph Farah wish for thirty seconds that his wingnut readership had even the slightest concept of what satire is? No, probably not.

From the WorldNetDaily story announcing the lawsuit:

"You can't just make up words and put them in people's mouths, deliberately misleading the public, deliberately defaming others and deliberately lying to inhibit commerce," Farah said. "Media institutions such as Esquire magazine and its parent, the Hearst Corporation, for which I was employed for nearly a decade, should know better. And they will as a result of this lawsuit."

Yeah, you can't just go around lying and making up words and deliberately misleading the public in order to inhibit commerce. But it is completely fine to do it when you are making money from it. [TPM/ WND]

It was bound to happen. We're now watching Republican congressmen react to Donald Trump sitting in the Oval Office and saying "RUSSIA IF YOU'RE LISTENING" during an interview with George Stephanopoulos, literally inviting hostile foreign powers to attack the 2020 election for him like Russia did in 2016. And if you thought there wouldn't be at least one of them to say the quiet part loud and state for the record that crime is good if it helps Republicans win, then you haven't been paying attention to the Republican party in quite a while.

Enter GOP Rep. Chris Stewart of Utah, who sits on the House Intelligence Committee, AKA the committee whose members really should know better, even the Republicans, but unfortunately they don't because A) they're idiots and B) they've been sucking at Devin Nunes's dairy cows' teats (ALLEGEDLY) for too long:
