Got Bored…E-mailed the President.

Thank God. They finally left…..

I made a mention in my September 28th entry to WHUZZUP that I got bored and e-mailed the President of the United States.

Since then, a black 4×4 with two guys in it have been camped in front of my house…

Can’t mistake ’em…well dressed, mirrored sunglasses, earpieces, and constantly talking into their right sleeve…guess who? The Secret Service.

They just took off. I guess after two months of not receiving Communist Newspapers or sporting an AK-47, they finally realized I’m just a well meaning American showing his leader some support through a rough time in his career…

Monica now.

 

Previous Job.

Personally, I don’t think I wrote anything that would warrant such scrutiny…I guess it’s just their job. I always heard stories about how they open files on people that call the White House or write to the President…. Or maybe it’s because I’m Republican….Anyway, here is what I wrote…..

To: president@whitehouse.gov
From:
moi@ericbrooks.com <Eric Brooks>
Subject: Hang In There!

Dear Mr. President:

Just wanted to tell you that you're doing a great job. And coming from a lifelong Republican that voted for your re-election in '96 that should tell you something!

Keep up the good work and hang in there!

Sincerely,
Eric Brooks

You’ll note my standard email headers on the bottom…that plays an important part in the story later…I immediately receive the following from the White House:

To:
moi@ericbrooks.com <Eric Brooks>
From:
autoresponder@whitehouse.gov

Subject: Re: Hang In There!

     Thank you for writing to President Clinton via electronic mail. 
Since June 1993, the President has received over 2.8 million messages from people across the country and around the world.  Online communication has become a tool to bring government and the people closer together.
     Because so many of you write, the President cannot personally review each message, though he does receive samples of his incoming correspondence.  The White House Correspondence staff helps him read and respond to the mail.  All responses are mailed via the U.S. Postal Service. This is the only electronic message you will receive from whitehouse.gov.  No other message purporting to be from the President or his staff with an address at whitehouse.gov is authentic.
If you have received such a message, you have received a "spoof."

     We appreciate your interest in the work of the Administration.

          Sincerely,
          Stephen K. Horn

          Director, Presidential E-mail
          The Office of Correspondence

Jeez, what a gyp! I wrote to The President, not to this guy! I bet he’ll never know I wrote to him…


Or so I thought……

I recently received an entry to the Guestbook from Heaven from a “Bill C” who received peace of mind through the amazing accuracy of The Magic 8-Ball. Yes, I admit I altered the e-mail address to the guestbook entry to read the generic Presidential E-mail addy, but according to my logs, the person who signed my guestbook has the same IP address as www.whitehouse.gov , and I felt it was best to protect their privacy.
Guess who?

Unless a White House Staffer or Secret Service agent had their sense of humor surgically reattached, this site was surfed by The President himself!

One hell of a cool President! The last time I had a moment this great was 13 years ago, when I saluted Reagan in a passing motorcade in downtown Manhattan, and he saluted me right back….!

Say or believe what you want about Clinton…
All I know is we’re in a state of prosperity now and as far as the whole Monica Lewinsky/Impeachment fiasco…I believe that… Aw Crap! The Secret Service is back in front of my house!!

They apparently stepped out for Philly Cheesesteaks at the deli down the road….

*groan*
I’ll never write again… I swear.
