Obama's Blackberry by Kasper Hauser: Giveaway (6/16) CLOSED

Monday, May 18, 2009 Posted by Dina N


Book Information
When Obama stated that if elected, he would keep his Blackberry, debate echoed through Washington and among the ranks of the Secret Service. What would it be like to have a president who could Twitter, send text messages, and navigate the web with ease? What would it be like to receive a text message from inside the Oval Office and, most importantly, what would it say?

Now, for the first time, We The People are privy to our new leader's epistolary back-and-forths on his wily hand-held device. We're about to discover that his emails (and the replies, from his wife and daughters, Biden, Palin, Rush, Hannity, the new first puppy, and even Bush) are so tuned in to the language of electronic correspondence they come hilariously close to the brink of legibility.

This giftable, imagined glimpse into Obama's beloved Blackberry traverses the mundane and momentous contours of the Commander in Chief's life, from security briefings to spam, basketball practice to domestic bliss, and the panic of oops-I-hit-reply-all, to, of course, the trauma of dealing with the First Mother In Law.

To wit:
BARACKO: M rly busy
BidenMyTime: Right :( Can I lv at 4:45?

And if you're not convinced about how funny the Kasper Hauser crew is, you can check out their videos from their previous book, SkyMaul.

    Hi Right now I'm reading City of Glass. It's giving me a break from my usually more serious work related required reading. This Obama book sounds so good. Cheers
