Sarah Palin Uses Email Dump To Release Critics Personal Information [ She Roped the Dopes! ]
politicususa.com ^ | June 10 2011 | Jason Easley and Sarah Jones

Posted on 06/10/2011 5:33:06 PM PDT by NoLibZone

As the media swarms over Sarah Palin’s emails has anyone thought to ask why the personal information of those who wrote emails critical of Palin was not redacted?

Some very ugly things are going to come out of these emails and not against Sarah Palin. Frankly I’m very disturbed by her legal team’s choices in what I’m reading. Sarah Palin and her legal team spent two and half years combing these emails for pages they wanted to withhold and for redactions to protect the privacy of some people. But you want to know whose information they left in?

Any person who wrote to criticize the Governor has their email and phone number out for the Palin cult to attack. Sarah Palin once again used a seeming “attack” on her (aka, a request for transparency) as an opportunity to turn the guns of her internet vigilantes on her detractors. This is an outrageous compromising of those citizen’s privacy and safety.

Yes, they are private citizens, not public officials.

Palin doesn’t seem engaged at all in legislative process, but spends most of her emails forwarding mean and fawning emails about herself to her minions (the purpose of which Frank Bailey exposed in his book to take down detractors) or emails praising her as God’s chosen. She sent emails during the VP campaign requesting information about her own budgets and positions to such an extent that it’s easy to get the idea she had no idea what she passed. It’s also obvious that the state was not engaged in state activity during the VP campaign, but in management of Palin’s image.

I feel sorry for those media members who traipsed to Alaska thinking that they were going to get unfettered information. What we are seeing in these emails is an attempt by Palin and the people who were appointed by her and working for her in Alaska to create a narrative of revenge and the victimization of Sarah Palin.

I.O.W. they got nothing on her!

“Palin doesn’t seem engaged at all in legislative process,...”

Perhaps because she wasn't in the legislative branch. LOL.

If those people didn’t want their information released, they had plenty of time to file for standing and redact it.

My gosh, she’s even smarter than we thought.

Seems I’m hearing that a lot.

Heehee.

It’s amusing to listen to the same scavenging harpies who
swoop down on the least tidbit of Palin going on about
how virulent and hateful her supporters are.

So far this is the only complaint that any private individual's communication with the Governor was released.

Maybe they know something?!?!?!?!

I'd release all the death threats Fur Shur. Let people know who's theatening the Governor ~ see what happens to their credit ratings.

Nice wording. 8-D

A better wording would be to replace the words “privacy of some people” to “privacy of their client”.

This is really a pathetic attempt to make Palin the bad guy when documents they insisted on the state releasing do finally come out and show info damaging her political enemies.

It is also sweet justice. For a “stupid” person, she sure gets the last laugh a lot. Just sayin’. ;)

It sounds like she is saying that Sarah set a trap and the commie 'RAT maggots fell into it. ROTFL!!!!

If you send an email to the governor of Alaska with your phone number in the email, do you really expect that information to remain private? And if so, to who? The citizenry of Alaska?

Different governors have different styles. As all states require the governor’s assent to put a measure passed by the legislature into law (unless the legislature overrides), the governor can involve himself or herself, and can pull and lobby for certain measures. Maybe this isn’t seen in Palin’s email because she preferred to do it in person.

Palins attorney never requested that anything be redacted or withheld. As per ABC news. Poor Jason Easley and Sarah Jones. Missed the boat again.

Palin either has a super-double secret behind the scenes guy running the show that makes Rove at his best look like an amateur or things like this keep happening by divine intervention.

Wow. For a slack-jawed chillbilly half-wit, Sarah Palin sure spends a lot of time outfoxing her opponents and making them look like absolute fools.

If I were a super genius liberal elite reporter mastermind, I’d be shaking a fist at the sky, yelling, “Curses! Foiled again!” right about now. I mean, there’s just no explaining it, unless you start to think that maybe she’s not as dumb as they thought. And that’s dangerous thinking, there.

Rush Limbaugh, speaking this week about Sarah Palin, made a comment that stuck with me: “She keeps score”

I like that about her.

In other words, Palin isn't hiding anything...but her detractors come out looking pretty ugly when she made no attempt to cover for them.

According to the state and the governor's office, Palin's attorneys requested no redactions or the withholding of a single e-mail.

The left stands exposed. And they're pissed off.

I have no problem with this. I don’t even support Sarah Palin for president but the idea what she and she alone should have this level of scrutiny whereas our current president is an enigma is revolting. The media was so f***ing hard core on getting this stuff...let’s spill it all. Her attackers can KMA...I hope their lives are made miserable.

The author seems to assume that a Governor should be involved in the minutia of the legislative process. I agree — in person meetings would be a better way to influence decisions. In addition, there are literally tons of substantive reports, budget documents, analyses, and planning documents produced by a government every year. Email just isn't adequate for these uses.

“Can anyone else feel it? “

Maybe it’s just wishful thinking on my part, but yes, something seems to be in the air. Chaos theory does not allow for things like unobstructed media dominance to go on forever. Or as the lib favorite song once said “A time to....Turn, Turn, Turn.”

1. He thinks governors not legislators pass legislation.

2. He is surprised she does not stab her supporters in the back and protect her enemies. This is a sure sign the writer must be an establishment GOPer.

Because the murder and degradation of political opponents is perfectly acceptable to those with a Communist/cult mindset...of which the author apparently possesses.

She’s never going to win with the MSM. Had she released “redacted” emails, she would have been accused of “covering up” something. The MSM cries now because she DIDN’T “cover up” something.
