I'm probably not explaining it very well.. it isn't some wild crazy configuration. It is actually VERY common for software to encode a pdf with layers. It's similar to OCR but not quite. It picks out elements of the image and tries to group them. This can happen BOTH when the PDF is encoded AND when you import it in a program like Illustrator or Photoshop.
And hey, I DO WANT it to be true.. I'm no fan of Obama... but I've seen far far crazier things happen when scanning to a PDF using the default
If you guys want, I can do what I did for the Ron Paul conspiracy and recreate it using a very likely/common process... but it seems like a lot of work for something that is pretty straightforward.
