MEET DR. KEVIN PEZZI…. This report from Ben Dimiero and Eric Hananoki is so astounding, it pains me to realize it’s true. Hell, I wish it weren’t true — because, really, the political world doesn’t need another deranged wingnut — but the report is incontrovertible.

In two posts on Andrew Breitbart’s BigGovernment website, Dr. Kevin Pezzi smears Shirley Sherrod as a racist, claiming that “if someone deserves to be put on a pedestal for overcoming racism, it isn’t Sherrod.” The racism criticism is ironic coming from Pezzi, who has repeatedly used racial epithets like “Japs” and “Chinks,” and claimed Native and African Americans should have been grateful for their subjugation by whites.

Pezzi, who says that “Breitbart asked me to write for,” has a peculiar self-described history. Pezzi claims to be responsible for “over 850 inventions” and schemes such as a “magic bullet” for cancer, a “robotic chef,” and sexual inventions like “penile enlargement techniques” and “ways to tighten the vagina” (because “men like women with tight vaginas”). Pezzi has started multiple websites, from term paper helpers to a sexual help site that answers “your questions about sexual attraction, pleasure, performance, and libido” (Pezzi is qualified to do so because “No doctor in the world knows more about sexual pleasure than I do”).

Pezzi also claims to have “beaten Bill Gates” on a math aptitude test, turned down a blind date with Katie Couric, and says he’s “bigger than some porno stars.”

This really does just scratch the surface. If you’re inclined to think conservative activists and Republican media personalities seem to be increasingly bizarre, go ahead and read up on Kevin Pezzi — and appreciate the fact that he’s probably the strangest of the strange.

In a follow-up piece, Simon Maloy notes that Pezzi also appears to have created “at least six fake MySpace profiles of women — most of them featuring badly photoshopped stock images of models with large breasts — claiming to be enthralled with Dr. Pezzi and his sex books…. And don’t for one second think that this creepiness is limited just to MySpace. We’ve also turned up two fake Twitter accounts belonging to ‘Lynda W’ and ‘Jennie Simmons,’ who tweet almost exclusively about their love of Dr. Pezzi’s books.”

Where do conservative media outlets find these guys?
