Dear Mr. Rove: 32 Letters to Karl Rove


OK. The second item I think you should buy!

After reading Kate’s blog entry and CK’s blog entry about Justin Evans’s chapbook Dear Mr. Rove: 32 Letters to Karl Rove, I went over to Lulu and purchased the chapbook.

After reading about three or four letters I thought to myself, this is the kind of chapbook I want as a winner when LW sponsors a chapbook contest. Dear Mr. Rove was my first taste of Justin’s writing, and I plan on placing my hands on more. I think you’ll do the same after you read Dear Mr. Rove.

Some of my favorite lines:
First, am I still protected under the First Amendment of our Constitution if I call you a Douche Bag? Does profanity play into any decision you might have urging the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to look into my background in the event I called you a Fucking Douche Bag?

~

However, if you do find it absolutely necessary to call me back to service, I sure hope you take into account that I am bit overweight and I will need uniforms with a slightly larger waist than normal.

~

Remember Mr. Rove, I am a teacher, and if I sound pushy about you finishing school, it’s because I care.

~

I would like a My Little Pony. Anyone the FBI suspects of being a cross-dresser (I am only assuming they suspect you) should know where to find a My Little Pony.

Justin’s letters are witty, funny, and thought provoking. I have no doubt you’ll feel the same after reading his chapbook. (I’m even buying a copy of Dear Mr. Rove as a birthday gift for a friend.)
