    Laughter gives us distance. It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it and then move on. — Bob Newhart Doing the job that comedians won’t do… -00- How do you begin writing a book review for a book that makes you laugh and cry all at the same time?

It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it and then move on. — Bob Newhart Doing the job that comedians won’t do… -00- How do you begin writing a book review for a book that makes you laugh and cry all at the same time? Scott Ott’s “Laughing at Obama, Volume 1” is an evocative and satirical look at Barack Obama starting from his rise to fame within the Democratic Party to his historical presidential campaign to his first year and a half as the President of the United States. Some of the articles are just plain out-and-out funny. With headlines such as “If Obama Won’t Run, Dems Fear Dearth of Unknowns,” “Obama, Clinton, to Redistribute Cash to Poorer Rivals,” “Poll: Most Still Favor Obama Presidency Concept,” and “Obama Policy Barrage Combats Dem Reelection Threat,” there’s lots of stuff that will make you laugh out loud. In the midst of the humor and the poking-fun, there’s a serious and heart-wrenching side to it as well. Reading this book will not only make you laugh but it will make you stop and think. Through his gift of satire, Scott shows us his love for the country and his desire for something better than what we’re currently settling for with the Obama Administration. If you saw me out reading this weekend, those were tears of joy. Honest. Some of them, anyway. “Laughing at Obama, Volume 1” can be purchased for the Kindle at Amazon.com. The paperback will be available June 2010 from Amazon or you can purchase single autographed copies (or cases to hand out to all your laughter-needy friends) at MacMenamin Press. You can find Scott at ScottOtt.Org and read his satire for yourself at Scrappleface. Wherever he’s channeling it from, Scott Ott is definitely doing something right. -00- The human race has one really effective weapon, and that is laughter. — Mark Twain -00- P.S. I know what I’m doing for Christmas presents this year. Or birthdays, for that matter. (as published at http://www.imperfectclarity.net/?p=929)

    While the stories an incidents in the book are twisted from what actually happened the way that it was done shows a good bit of satirical insight and at the same time is disturbing in how the satire could just as easily been reality with the way things have played out with this administration.

    I got this as an ebook on Amazon for either $.99 or $1.99. It was worth much more just for the laughs I got at 2 a.m. while trying not to awaken my sleeping husband. News analysis a la "The Onion" and Dennis Miller's days on SNL, "Laughing at Obama" is simply a compilation of Ott's short satirical pieces from the site ScrappleFace.com. The selected articles begin in 2007 and run through 2010, encompassing every thing from Obama's days as an aspiring candidate to Obamacare, Gitmo, & Elena Kagan.

Each piece is maybe 1000 words, making this humor-filled book a quick read that will leave your sides aching from the laughter Ott's wit incites. ---- A perfect example: Obama’s ‘Cash for Cardigans’ to Cut Carbon Emissions(2009-12-15) — President Barack Obama has acknowledged that his new $23 billion weatherization subsidy program will merely slow the leakage of heat from homes. So today the president introduced what the White House calls “phase II” of an overall program to completely eliminate carbon emissions from residential buildings. The $37 billion “cash for cardigans” program will help homeowners to pay for sweaters, cardigans, housecoats, even Snuggies (the blanket with sleeves, As Seen on TV), so that they can dial back the thermostat to a setting that would require combustion of fossil fuels “only during the most frigid episodes of global cooling.” According to experts at the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia, widespread “bundling up” in the U.S. and U.K. will “unquestionably save island nations from seawater inundation, African nations from utter dessication and polar bears from spontaneous combustion.” “The data, which we recently misplaced, is irrefutable,” said CRU director Phil Jones, currently on involuntary sabbatical. “By combining carbon-credit trading with weather stripping, vegetarianism, cardigan-wearing, alternate-day respiration, and other simple lifestyle changes, we can stave off the destruction of billions of acres of wildlife habitat, and perhaps save humanity as well.” Under the Obama “cash for cardigans” program, citizens would receive a one dollar credit toward woolen wear for each degree they reduce their thermostat. The White House said this means a senior citizen, living on a fixed income, could receive a $45 cardigan at no charge, simply by turning the thermostat back to 27 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Аз харесвам Скот Отт и не харесвам Обама особено (даже никак). За съжаление комедийните скечове, създадени да бъдат казвани, изобщо нямат същия ефект когато са написани. Просто не е смешно.
