Journalists in Chicago know Andy Martin all to well and it would only take a quick news search on the internet to find he is no "journalist."
(But he does like to sue them for pointing out his past.)
Still, somehow, Martin found himself the main source for a 6 minute "documentary" on Fox News' Hannity and Colmes that said Obama was trained by Bill Ayers and Louis Farrakhan to take over the country in some kind of socialist revolution.
In the "documentary" Martin is labeled an "author & journalist."
Political watchers may remember Martin was a gadfly in the Republican gubernatorial primary and U.S. Senate primary this spring. He has run for a litany of offices in several states, including president.

You're down / Then you rise again

When "Body of Lies" comes out on DVD, some Ridley Scott fanboy is going to make a YouTube highlight reel of the film set to that song. (Let's face it, it'll be me.) I think we can safely say that Leonardo DiCaprio's pretty-boy persona from "Titanic" is dead, dead, dead -- his Roger Ferris spends the entirety of Scott's terrorism thriller broken, beat and scarred, and this on the heels of his gritty turn in "The Departed" and his masterful characterization in "The Aviator."
