Overzealous Obama Fan Gets Campaign E-mails, Responds With Gay Love Letters, ‘My Sweet and Darling Barack’
Honestly, this could have actually been any member of the mainstream media that fell for this.
It was as if the first gay President was speaking to him. Dylan Hansen-Fliedner received the same campaign e-mails that millions of others had during the election season. You know the ones. Form letters asking for your minor $3 or $5 donation, and signed with the President’s name.
But Dylan seems to be the only one who took things just a tad too far.
… But one student at the University of Pennsylvania was inspired in another way. He wrote back. Love letters.
When Dylan Hansen-Fliedner received an email signed by “Barack” asking for help with the great challenges that lay ahead, the 20-year-old sought to reassure the president of his support: “writing this letter makes me run out of words..i love you so much that i dont know how to express it anymore..”
In response to a missive signed by first lady Michelle Obama, he wrote: “Dear Michelle, You existing makes me want to crawl under a rock. Your beauty undoes everything else—the sun dims and my childhood memories become less idyllic.”
And when Vice President Joe Biden – or “Joe” — emailed after his debate with Paul Ryan, Hansen-Fliedner wrote back: “I felt your pale eyes were telling something to me beyond words. My brain says it is just a delusion where you meant to convey nothing. My heart says there is definitely something in your heart which is not letting go of me.”
Here’s one exchange:

This is the last time we’ll do this.
Tonight is the campaign’s final FEC deadline.
I’m asking you to chip in before midnight.
Right now, this race is very close — the outcome will come down to what we do with the next 20 days.
If we win, it’ll be because each of us stepped up to do our part at moments like this.
Donate $5 or more today, and stand with me for the final weeks of my last campaign:

My sweet and Darling Barack
Today a feel very happy because I notice at each and every instant the importance you represent to me and the strength you transmit, so that I can face whichever obstacle without fear or insecurity, moved only by an infinite will to make you as happy as I feel this minute.
You are gorgeous and adorable, capable of making me realize how good it is to feel alive, how good it is that your presence makes me grow and transform into a better person, capable of turning dreams into reality and make the result of those dreams, now shared by us both, and eternalizing then into an ambience of harmony, care and love.
My life without you would lack meaning, lack sense. Without you I would be nothing but a wandering errant, searching for my path that could lead me to happiness’s door. But with you around, by my side, close to me, I’m certain of having made the right, safer and yet romantic choice. I feel that all this love and care, that I share here with you, goes both ways and it fills my heart with peace and joy. Gazing endlessly into your deep yet sweet eyes, I realize the tender and pure light that pours from your heart and soul.
I shall never let this feeling that joins us perish. Never, by any chance, let us dript away from love’s true path, built on complicity and affection.
I love you and forever will!
The sad part here is that Sir Creeps A Lot is likely not alone in his admiration.
Chris Matthews and Andrew Sullivan couldn’t be reached for comment.
Likely not. After all, it was just a short time ago that the headline glaring from the cover of Newsweek was asking, “Why Are Obama’s Critics So Dumb?”
This is also the same magazine who’s post-election analysis in 2008 included a prediction that there would be a baby boom based on the excitement, and subsequent increase in sex, that would result from Obama’s victory. No, I’m not kidding. Yes, I also just threw up in my mouth.
But the latest article which gets feature status on this week’s cover of Newsweek is a stunner nonetheless.
The title? Hit the Road, Barack.
The subtitle? Why We Need a New President.
Does it get any more honest than that?
Author Niall Ferguson then poses this question and answer:
Why does Paul Ryan scare the president so much? Because Obama has broken his promises, and it’s clear that the GOP ticket’s path to prosperity is our only hope.
Ferguson then goes into a little more detail as to why the GOP ticket is the only hope.
I was a good loser four years ago. “In the grand scheme of history,” I wrote the day after Barack Obama’s election as president, “four decades is not an especially long time. Yet in that brief period America has gone from the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. to the apotheosis of Barack Obama. You would not be human if you failed to acknowledge this as a cause for great rejoicing.”
Despite having been—full disclosure—an adviser to John McCain, I acknowledged his opponent’s remarkable qualities: his soaring oratory, his cool, hard-to-ruffle temperament, and his near faultless campaign organization.
Yet the question confronting the country nearly four years later is not who was the better candidate four years ago. It is whether the winner has delivered on his promises. And the sad truth is that he has not.
In his inaugural address, Obama promised “not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth.” He promised to “build the roads and bridges, the electric grids, and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together.” He promised to “restore science to its rightful place and wield technology’s wonders to raise health care’s quality and lower its cost.” And he promised to “transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age.” Unfortunately the president’s scorecard on every single one of those bold pledges is pitiful.
This certainly isn’t an indicator that Newsweek is shifting it’s policies to to the right. It is after all, a lone article. Several liberal pieces of tripe are surely in queue in the coming months.
But the question remains, how bad does it have to be for a hard liberal magazine to shift focus even for a day, and take a hard shot at the President?
The similarities between our statement two days ago, and the one Sarah Palin tweeted today are eerie.
Regarding Newsweek’s cover featuring this title from an Andrew Sullivan piece, “Why Are Obama’s Critics So Dumb?”
How dumb do you have to be to have a cover story featuring a Trig truther like Andrew Sullivan as your authority on all things intelligent?
And today Palin tweeted:
“@SarahPalinUSA: @Newsweek: know what’s truly “dumb”? Giving a cover story to the TrigTruther conspiracy kook writer who thinks I didn’t give birth to my son”
Alright, so the similarities aren’t really all that eerie. And anybody could point out how much of a dolt Sullivan is.
But still, we’d like to think Sarah is reading… 🙂
Couldn’t the same question be posed to Newsweek? How dumb do you have to be to have a cover story featuring a Trig truther like Andrew Sullivan as your authority on all things intelligent? (h/t Aaron)
