I was surfing the net (does anybody say that anymore? I guess I just did, so nevermind) on March 19th, and saw that one of my Facebook friends, Steve Deace (the nationally syndicated conservative talk show host and Washington Post columnist) was holding a contest. He said that Hillary Clinton was writing a new book, and she said she hadn’t thought of a title yet. The contest was this: come up with a good title for Hillary’s new book, tweet it to Steve’s show, and the best title would win a free copy of Steve’s new book “Rules for Patriots: How Conservatives Can Win Again.”
I started tweeting book titles. Some were funny, some were silly, and some were biting. Over the course of the next few hours, I submitted 52 book titles. My favorites were:
• How to Hit Reset to the 1970’s
• Charlie and the Great Glass Ceiling.
• How to Kill a US Ambassador in 3 Easy Steps
• I Know Why The Caged Bird Wants Socialism
• It Takes a Woman
• The Four People You Meet in Benghazi
• The Girl Who Played With the Economy
• President Carter the Third
• All I Really Needed to Know I Learned in Benghazi.
My favorite title not written by me was “Are You There, Hillary? It’s Me, Chris.”
Evidently Steve Deace liked two of my titles enough to award the contest (and the free book) to me! Here were the two deciding titles that he liked the most:
• The Communist Manifesto: The New American Standard Version
• Where the Red Star Grows
He mentioned me by name on his radio show as the winner, and he. Pronounced. My. Name. Correctly. Wow!
Fast-forward to yesterday, April 2nd. A package came in the mail for me.
Inside the package: a copy of his book.
Inside the book, a dedication to me signed by Steve. Sweet.
Thanks, Steve! Now I just need to carve out some free time to read it.
