Here’s a bio of Barack Obama put out by his former literary agents, Acton & Dystel, in 1991. Anything seem out of sorts?
Whew! For a minute there I thought Obama’s bio was going to claim he was part Cherokee. But still, The One must be furious that the people at his agency were birthers before the world even knew what birthers were. And to think he paid them a healthy commission for circulating this tripe!
Maybe as a joke some former presidents went back in time and messed with Obama’s bio just to see how he likes it.
All the background on that bio is here. Speculate away!
Update: A person who was an assistant at the agency at the time has said it was a “fact checking error.” (Job offer from the Associated Press incoming!) It would be interesting to find out if this same “fact checking error” was made on, say, Obama’s admissions application to Harvard. We’ll probably never know.
