Obama's Blackberry
By Kasper Hauser

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, 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.

To wit: 

BidenMyTime: Hey U, whatcha doin? 
BARACKO: M rly busy
BidenMyTime: Right :( Can I lv at 4:45?

The fact that President Obama couldn't let go of his BlackBerry is funny enough, but get a comedy group like Kasper Hauser to take that BlackBerry and come up with the funniest messages imaginable and you get a riot in the palm of your hand.    Roughly the size of a BlackBerry (alright, maybe the older, bigger models), this palmsized book is a quick read, even quicker because you just keep on turning those pages for a fresh laugh. This book is hilarious, both in its absurd (but …
