    That’s pretty clearly a fake, and a poor one at that. Zoom to 400% and check out the excessive spacing before “i” (why would that not be capitalized?), the angle of “asshole” relative to the text, and how the letterforms don’t quite match.

    The full letter is here: http://wid.ap.org/interactives/emerson.pdf

    Personally I’m not convinced either way, as a fake or not. Probably a secretary’s prank or something.

    I admit it, this made me laugh out loud.

    Nonetheless, I can’t believe that it is real. Only the esteemed Cynthia McKinney could pen a final sentence like that. :)

    The excessive spacing and lack of capitalization certainly don’t make me think it is a fake. I mean it wouldn’t have been any harder to fake with a capital letter and I could move the ‘i’ over to the right place with an image editing program and a few minutes.

    Likely what happened is that some staffers were joking around or just wrote what they really thought in an early draft and then forgot to take it out of the final draft.
