Scrapping My Next Book Idea

I was thinking my next book should be a science fiction story about Republican elected officials who were eager to work with the new black president. But after the publication of The Roots of Obama’s Rage by author Dinesh D’Souza (pictured), I don’t think my idea is outlandish enough to grab America’s attention, given what D’Souza wrote.

From the back cover:

The most powerful country in the world is being governed according to the dreams of a Luo tribesman of the 1950’s (President Obama’s father) – a polygamist who abandoned his wives, drank himself into stupors, and bounced around on two iron legs (after his real legs had to be amputated because of a car crash caused by his drunk driving). This philandering, inebriated African socialist, who raged against the world for denying him the realization of this anti-colonial ambitions, is now setting the nation’s agenda through the reincarnation of this dreams in his son. The son is the one who is making it happen, but the son is, as he candidly admits, only living out his father’s dream. The invisible father provides the inspiration, and the son dutifully gets the job done. America today is being governed by a ghost.

From the inside flap:

In The Roots of Obama’s Rage you’ll learn – Why Obama’s economic policies are actually designed to make America poorer compared to the rest of the world. Why Obama will welcome a nuclear Iran. Why Obama see America as a rogue nation – worse than North Korea. The real reason Obama banished a bust of Winston Churchill from the White House and ordered NASA to praise the scientific contributions of Muslims. Why Obama would like to make America’s superpower status a thing of the past. Why Obama is thinking about springing Lex Luthor out of jail so they can both team up against Superman.

Obviously I made the last one up. It isn’t as ridiculous as the others.
