John Dean on "Obama Nation"

John Dean indicts both John Corsi and U.S. defamation law in this post about Mr. Corsi's book about Presidential candidate Barack Obama, Obama Nation. Says Mr. Dean in part, "[N]otwithstanding Jerome Corsi's stack of conspicuous false statements about Barack Obama, I doubt that Obama could convince a judge that he has been defamed - unlike John Kerry, who was brutally defamed by Corsi in 2004. (Actually, I was certain Kerry would sue him, given the clear evidence of actual malice the book demonstrated, and amazed when Kerry did not. Had Kerry sued, the costly verdict or settlement might have put Corsi out of business.)" Read more here in this FindLaw column.
