Obama's Blackberryby Kasper Hauser
Synopses & Reviews
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.

Are the Tea Baggers simply rabble-rousers from the right who hate not getting their way? Is the Coffee Party just a bunch of jittery java nuts without enough money to afford to hire star politicians?
Coffee, Tea, or Kool-Aid is the one book that examines the issues and helps Americans tell the parties apart (they agree more times than they may care to admit!) while they laugh all the way to the polls. Filled with party history and characters, side-by-side comparisons and contradictions, as well as memorable quotes, slogans, and Venn diagrams, this handy guide spells it all out and injects some humor back into the political dialogue.
