As the first US President in history to take a Blackberry into the Oval Office, Obama has left the door wide open for satirist Kasper Hauser.
Just so we are clear, I will not discuss politics on my book review blog. I am a voracious debater outside the realm of Alison's Book Marks, so feel free to contact me off-line if you want to discuss healthcare reform, Gitmo, Afghanistan, or the NJ Gubernatorial race. Maybe someday I'll start a political blog...but not today.
Back to the review. I actually chuckled a bit while reading this very clever book! Joe Biden is incessantly asking if he can leave the office early, Arnold Schwartzenegger has taken it upon himself to "Terminate" Osama bin Laden, and Oprah is secretly dictating foreign policy. Sure, there are the jabs at W, Cheney, Palin, and the like, but it's all in good fun. There is some funny stuff in this book.
Leave your voter registration card at the door, and you'll enjoy Obama's Blackberry. Easily read in less than 30 minutes, I would say that this is a good gift book, but not something I would normally pick up for myself.
To read some of the texts from the book, you can go to Obama's Blackberry website.
You can also visit Kasper Hauser's website.
