Letter from Barack

I donated to the Obama campaign, and this is an excerpt from the "personal letter" I received:

--- Forwarded Message ---
From: Barack Obama
Subject: Major news

Una --

We learned something extraordinary since I wrote to you last night...

We've crunched all the numbers and discovered that we are within striking distance of something historic: one million people donating to this campaign...

Think about that ... nearly one million people taking ownership of this movement, five dollars or twenty-five dollars at a time...

Unlike Senator Clinton or Senator McCain, we haven't taken a dime from Washington lobbyists or special interest PACs. Our campaign is responsible to no one but the people...

Will you make a matching donation now to make it happen?

...But even though the odds were stacked against them, they discovered that by coming together with one voice, they could no longer be ignored.

...We knew it wouldn't be easy.

But if we can do this, we're not just going to win an election. We're going to change our country.

Thank you so much,

Barack

Here, though, is the letter I read:

--- Forwarded Message ---
From: Barack Obama
Subject: Major news

Una --

I wrote to you last night.

[I]'ve crunched all the numbers and discovered that [I love you].

Think about that ... [your] twenty-five dollars has shaken [me].

Unlike Senator Clinton or Senator McCain, [you are not old and preachy].

Will you [call me] now to make it happen?

Even though the odds [are] stacked against [us], by coming together with one voice, we [can] no longer be ignored.

We knew it wouldn't be easy.

But if we can do this, we're not just going to win an election. We're going to [run away together].

[Love],

Barack

    That's kind of like how i heard obama say "shove it up your ass, you overconnected, opportunistic warmonger" to Hillary Clinton right after her 'change we can xerox' line during thursday's debate. But then later i found out he actually hadn't said that?? WTF?
