When President Barack Obama released his long-form birth certificate yesterday, there were winners (sane people) and losers (Donald Trump).  But the biggest loser of all wasn't Trump. It was Jerome Corsi, along with his book "Where's the birth certificate?" and the WorldNetDaily "Superstore. "  Corsi's book, which recently hit No. 1 on Amazon.com before it has even been released (thanks to a huge plug from the Drudge Report), now has been completely overtaken by current events.  How can a book called "Where's the birth certificate?"

IMAGINE Sidney Blumenthal's surprise when he sat down at his computer in August, logged on to the Drudge Report, a popular Internet gossip column, and discovered he ''has a spousal-abuse past that has been effectively covered up.'' As Mr. Blumenthal, political journalist and newly appointed presidential assistant, told it through his attorney, this was news to him and to his wife, who directs the White House fellows program. They responded by slapping a $30-million libel suit on Matt Drudge, who writes the Drudge Report, and on America Online, the Internet service that carries it. Meanwhile, Mr. Drudge, admitting he had been snookered by his source, pulled the item and issued a retraction.

WASHINGTON - House Majority Leader Tom DeLay has a new role: reluctant pop icon. On Wednesday's installment of NBC's Law & Order: Criminal Intent, police detectives searched for a killer who murdered a judge and her family. Detectives suspected white supremacists. "Maybe we should put out an APB for somebody in a Tom DeLay T-shirt," one of the detectives said. The Texas Republican, the target of an ethics controversy who this year criticized the federal judiciary, wasn't amused. DeLay, in a letter to NBC Universal Television Group President Jeff Zucker, said the program is evidence of the embarrassing state of the media's credibility.

The beating video of a tourist in Baltimore has generated considerable anger, and with a suspect seemingly identified through screen shots and Twitter messages, many have been asking why there haven't been any arrests or whether police are still working the case. Officials said Monday that the investigation remains ongoing. Though outraged viewers turned up evidence that appears to link a Rosedale man to the punch thrown at the victim, sources tell me that authorities are working to gather all the evidence they would need for a prosecution.
