    No wonder they had to hire off-duty cops to provide protection 

    Speaking of clowning around: When funny-man Jerry Corsi, co-author of the attack book Unfit for Command, signs his work Saturday at Barnes & Noble Booksellers in Montrose (11 a.m.) and at Borders on The Strip in Jackson Township (3 p.m.), book-buyers might want to ask the author to share of few of his jokes.

    Before Unfit for Command made him (in)famous, Corsi was better known for writing online slurs about Catholics, Jews, Muslims, women... Well, the list just goes on and on.

    In a chat room on, Corsi wrote: ``Islam is a peaceful religion just as long as the women are beaten, the boys buggered and the infidels are killed.''

    Of John Kerry, the man whom Corsi and co-author John O'Neill say is unfit to serve as commander in chief, Corsi wrote: ``After he married TerRAHsa, didn't John Kerry begin practicing Judaism? He also has paternal grandparents that were Jewish. What religion is John Kerry?''

    And on the possibility that New York Sen. Hillary Clinton might one day be a candidate for president: ``Let the FAT HOG run!!!''

    There's more, but you get the idea.

    Corsi says he was just kidding and, besides, his words were taken out of context. ``I don't stand by any of those comments,'' he has told the Associated Press, ``and I apologize if they offended anybody.''

    Offended? How could anyone be offended?
