The Deleted E-Mails of Hillary Clinton: A Parody – John Moe

(Reviewed by JD Jung)

“We are holding a heavily sedated Beyoncé in the State Department bunker as she undergoes some reeducation exercises. Once we have her fully convinced that it is in everyone’s best interests that she concentrates on music instead of global domination, we will release her…”

So you want to know what  emails were sent  by Secretary Clinton on her personal email account that could threaten our national security? Well, worry no more. WikiLoox  hacked into her private server and recovered these deleted emails….and they are shocking!

From the above entry to global gossip to her infatuation with Prince as well an obsession with “Call of Duty: Black Ops Fighting Nazi Zombies”, John Moe has created a series of hilarious emails separated  by year and entered chronologically, 2009 through February 2013.”

There are a lot of Pantsuit emails interspersed throughout the book, as she’s always trying to find the perfect pantsuit for that special diplomatic occasion. Most are pretty entertaining.

Some of the jokes are misses for me though, like most of the ones to The Fun Four- Hillary, Beyoncé, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Oprah Winfrey.  Are they even acquaintances?

I enjoyed the ones to her long-time aide (and wife of former U.S. Congressman Anthony Weiner), Huma Abedin. However, I wish there were more on her response to his sexting scandal, and more of the love letters from Vladimir Putin. (Hey, I told you they were shocking!)

I was hesitant to agree to review The Deleted E-mails of Hillary Clinton since I was afraid that the book would reflect an unfair  blanket condemnation of the Obama administration. However, the book is rather apolitical. The President exhibits his usual demeanor, as  “the only adult in the room” and his responses serve as a balance to the brash and impulsive email responses of everyone else in the book. Readers shouldn’t get offended unless they’re huge fans of Sarah Palin.

So no matter what side of the political spectrum you’re on: conservative or progressive, The Deleted E-mails of Hillary Clinton – A Parody will provide laughs and a welcome diversion from all the political mess that our electorate is facing.  Also, I’m sure they’re a lot more interesting than the real ones.
