Frustrated Obama Sends Nation Rambling 75,000-Word E-Mail

The president reportedly snapped last Tuesday afternoon when told he had to take a call from incoming House Speaker John Boehner. He ordered everyone out of his office and began typing obsessively. The remarkable document which he proceeded to write, sent as a 27 megabyte e-mail to everyone in the U.S. at 4:26 a.m. Wednesday, is summarized and quoted at The Onion. Here are excerpts from the article:

Having admittedly “reached the end of [his] rope,” President Barack Obama sent a rambling 75,000-word e-mail to the entire nation Wednesday, revealing deep frustrations with America’s political culture, his presidency, U.S. citizens, and himself.

The e-mail, which was titled “A couple things,” addressed countless topics in a dense, stream-of-consciousness rant that often went on for hundreds of words without any punctuation or paragraph breaks….

“I don?t mean to be rude, but I thought we were all on the samepage about helath care reform,” the 29th paragraph of Obama’s e-mail read in part. “It was part of my platform. You all knew I was goingt o pursue it when you elected me. And just real fast, going back on what I said earlier, the economic stimulus cut taxes for 95% of Americans. It didn’t raise them. It cut them. You people need to look at facts and stop litnening to all the right wing crap out there. By the way, we’re basically out of Iraq now. You?re welcome.”

“JESUS CHRIST, WE LOST OVER @ MILLION JOBS BEFOREE I EVEN TOOK OFFICE!!!11!” reads a sentence occupying a large white space between two massive chunks of texts, one of which was a 6,500-word tangent on the Muslim community center being built two blocks from the former World Trade Center site.
