The best Obama book?

I am going to have to buy and read McSweeney's Thanks and Have Fun Running the Country: Kids Letters to Obama. My favourite so far of the ones on the web site:

President Obama,

You should not smoke when you are president! There are simple reasons. Because you will die by smoking, and then you will not be president! But I want you to be.

Your No. 1 fan,

  1. Oh, this really made me smile. I look forward to reading more. Kids are so awesome, what a great letter!

  2. Hey, you have a new blog and you didn't tell me! And I even got a name-drop in the first post. Yay!
