With speculation running wild through the media on the true identity of the anonymous man (or woman) behind the forthcoming book, O: A Presidential Novel, I had to get in on the game. With a little math and some deductive reasoning, I think I have solved the mystery.

UPDATE (1/25/11)

The “anonymously” penned book has been released today to the clamorous public. (Well, the publisher hopes we will all be clamoring. Or at least willing to pick up a discounted copy at Costco.)

Simon and Schuster, the publisher, has created an internet publicity campaign for the fictional story by using a fictional Obama to speak about the book.

Take a look:

Notice anything missing from the scene? That’s right. No TOTUS. So who is feeding the TOTUS-dependent Obama his words? No one. He’s having to wing it, and clearly making mistakes.

Do you think it’s really a coincidence that TOTUS isn’t around to assist him anymore? If someone told all your secrets, would you want to keep them in the room?

Hardly. I’d say that’s just another brick in our wall of proof that TOTUS is Anonymous.
