Oregon GOP staff quietly amend platform after letter from General J.C. Christian

This is absolutely hilarious - read closely for a good laugh:
Amy Langdon
Executive Director
Oregon Republican Party

Dear Mrs. Langdon,

I writing to alert you to a breach of security at your website. As you recall, yesterday, I wrote you an email asking if you've made any progress in achieving the goal set out in Plank 7.5 of the Oregon GOP platform, the one that states:
7.5 Inter-jurisdictional agency cooperation shall be improved for more effective joint action against organized crime, drug cartels, terrorist networks and the Oregon Democratic Party.
Or at least it stated that before I sent my email to you. It's been changed since then. Someone's removed the last part, the words "and the Oregon Democratic Party." Certainly, it wasn't you. The Oregon GOP would never edit a plank that had been approved by delegates to its state convention. That'd be anti-democratic (so to speak).

The Oregon Democratic Party must be behind it. Obviously, they benefit by removing themselves as a target of joint inter-jurisdictional agency action.

It shouldn't be hard to fix. I'm enclosing a screen cap so you can see what it said up until yesterday. You can also find it cached at Google and at the Internet Archive's Way Back Machine.

Thank God I caught it.

Heterosexually yours in a chaste, biblically appropriate, and Larry Craig kind of way,

Gen. JC Christian, patriot
Chalk up another coup for satirical activism!
