My co-author Jeni Decker thought I was crazy when I suggested we send President Obama a copy of Waiting for Karl Rove. Crazy like a fox – not because I’m sly and intelligent, but because my legs and face are covered with fur. She also wondered if I might be barking mad when I suggested we include a pack of smokes for Obama. My theory has always been that nothing shows you care more than a thoughtful gift that will be gratefully used – possibly right before ordering Seal Team 6 to kill Osama bin Laden.
I finally convinced Jeni that the President of the United States could use a good laugh and she mailed off the book. I can only hope someday he will read it while drinking a beer and smoking. (I cannot trust a President who doesn’t smoke because this leads to additional stress and the probability of being a Republican.)
As you can see by the above photo, Jeni received a thank-you letter from President Obama’s Under Secretary to his Under Secretary’s Secretary. I am so fucking jealous! Once our sequel is in print, that book is being sent to the White House from my address.
