O come all ye dreamers into the realm of never shy on opinions, Halli Casser-Jayne, where right is Wright, and white is guilty, where truth is what you want it to be and rules are made to be questioned. This is the “How dare she say that?” road to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, where anyone can be insulted and everyone is, and O isn’t that just too bad.
Halli Casser-Jayne’s new book, A Year In My Pajamas With President Obama, The Politics of Strange Bedfellows explores the zany realm of politics in an innovative look at election 2008, a smart, sassy, and thought-provoking collection of columns originally written for Casser-Jayne’s blog, The CJ Political Report, and the U.K.’s Independent, the view through the eyes of an original thinker with an uncommon sense of humor and a nose for bull.
“O-ver Hillary, Over Bill, Obama...Oprah...Sarah and Mac, the gangs all here, Oh, Oh, and O let’s not forget the Obama media’s Tweety Bird, Halli’s Joe Scarborough-Fair, and the gang at Fox News who sometimes really can shoot straight,” Ms. Casser-Jayne writes in the introduction to her book. “This is the take ALL prisoners’ school of journalism that will make you laugh, and make you cry, and tick you O-ff, but above all else get you thinking! O sing choir of angels, sing in exultation tra-la-la. O ding dong the Bush era is O-ver. O come let us adore him, O come let us adore him, O come let us adore him, Obama is Lord~NOt!!!!!!!”
Touted by the very people it’s hardest to impress, Ms. Casser-Jayne’s book is called “Spot-on logical” by fellow political pundit and Fox News andLive contributor, author Fraser Seitel. “Hey, it’s a free country, where you can say what you want and Halli Casser-Jayne does just that!” Mr. Seitel writes. “Always irreverent, occasionally profane, Halli’s unique take on contemporary politics is well worth the read.”
Casser-Jayne has spent years studying the world of politics. A student of history, her book Still Life images of Antietam chronicles the bloodiest battle in American war. Her novel, Mambo! A Conversation with the Gods, tells the haunting tale of reporter Sydney Gordon whose quest to uncover the mystery of the missing Jorge Petro-Brain leads to a journey through the political games of Latin dictators and dictatorial American presidents. Ms. Casser-Jayne was a foreign correspondent reporting from Central America during the war years.
A Year In My Pajamas With President Obama, The Politics of Strange Bedfellows is 290 pages of insight and fun, sells for $16.95 and will be available at all fine bookstores following its release March 2009.
