campaign funding 2012

Is it just me or is there is something really funny happening with funds of political campaigns for 2012. I mean Lincoln used $100k for his campaign, Kennedy used 9.7 million, Clinton used $130 million in 1992 and Obama $740 million in 2008 I think this year will be the year we break a billion!! http://elections.nytimes.com/2012/campaign-finance/
