There's a Sucker Born Every Minute

... And when there's not Kevin Fischer's there to pick up the slack!

Fischer is peddling the laughably spurious lunatic conspiracy theory that Bill Ayers actually ghost wrote Barack Obama's Dreams from My Father as "a fascinating piece of detective work" when, in fact, it is little more than gross speculation founded on the flimsiest of weak coincidences:
Curiously, Obama tells the story of this past love while cutting "two green peppers." In his 1997 book, A Kind And Just Parent, Ayers specifically links "green peppers" with "saltpeter" and other substances that scare young men with the threat of impotence. Go figure.
Yes, and both authors wrote memoirs in the first person! It must be true!

Not surprisingly, the author of the this paranoid fever dream has a weekly column at World Net Daily, which has taken up the mantle of being the internet's foremost promoter of crazy nonesense regarding the President.

All of which begs the question: which Obama-related conspiracy will Fischer be hawking next? My money's on the "Obama's real father was Malcolm X" dosey.
