Review of Obama's Blackberry by Kasper Hauser
Book DescriptionWhen 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, Palen, 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.
Obama's Blackberry is a collection humoruos texts that you may find on the blackberry of Obama. Some fo the texts comre form former Presidents, TV personalities and world leaders. This si a ficiton account but it does reflect the personalities of the famous people who would possibly text our current President.The funniest texts come from former Presidents Clinton and Lincoln.
I would reccomend this to someone whoe would enjoy political humor because you may need to learn the personalities of some of these people to truly enjoy the humor.
I rate this 4/5
