Story Here


Obama campaign manager David Plouffe has agreed to a seven-figure deal to write a book about last year's presidential election.

"The Audacity to Win: The Inside Story and Lessons of Barack Obama's Historic Victory" will be published by Viking next fall.


The inside story? Hmmm ... I'm willing to bet there won't be any revealing 'inside' information. He ran a great campaign and now he gets to cash in. It's the American way, isn't it?


He'd better hope Obama is still riding high in the polls or else this book won't sell to anyone except to other campaign workers and perhaps some Political Science college students.

No kidding! Which could explain the Fall '09 publish date, versus ummm...maybe four years from now?

Nothing like cashing in before your investment tanks. Who's in a better position to see the waters ahead? Kind of like pumping up an (already) over-valued stock, then quickly cashing in. Is this the new version of insider trading?

I can already give the gist of this book, if this man has any intention on being honest about it.


Put simply, if you want to win over the dumbed down masses do not use long or complicated words. Instead, you take advantage of knowing that things are in a pretty bad state. What you will want to do is very simple indeed!
-Make many promises for a better life.
-Make it clear you support illegals, and plenty of freebies for them.
-Use easy words that will inspire, constantly -- hope, change, etc..NOTHING MORE (leave it to the imagination)
-Take advantage of all photo opps that provide for "noble"-looking press pictures.

Most importantly, you want to make sure to constantly declare yourself a minority -- even if this is not true. For instance, being a black man when in actuality you are mix. Or being female might work just as well. Take advantage of pretending to understand the struggles of minorities.
