In case you haven't heard, one of the co-authors of the anti-Kerry book/smear job Unfit for Command posts frequently to that bastion of sunshie, freerepublic.com (media matters has the skinny):

Corsi on "John F*ing Commie Kerry": "After he married TerRAHsa, didn't John Kerry begin practicing Judiasm? He also has paternal grandparents that were Jewish. What religion is John Kerry?"

Corsi on Senator "FAT HOG" Clinton: "Anybody ask why HELLary couldn't keep BJ Bill satisfied? Not lesbo or anything, is she?"
