(Newser) – Author Jerome Corsi, he of the Kerry Swift Boat book and the new attack tome on Barack Obama, has a long history of, um, provocative theories. For instance: The world's oil supplies are nearly infinite because oil constantly replenishes itself. Politico takes a look at some of his more outlandish claims over the years and how they've undermined his credibility on both the left and right. Among them:

  • Muslims worship Satan.
  • President Bush secretly plotted to merge the US with Canada and Mexico.
  • John Kerry is a communist.
  • Hillary Clinton is a lesbian.
  • The pope is OK with pedophilia as long as the "liberal press" keeps quiet about it.
