Sarah Palin emails provide no big bombshells (Ya Think, Politico?)
Politico ^ | Friday June 10, 2011 | Molly Ball

Posted on 06/10/2011 3:56:05 PM PDT by Bigtigermike

Reporters lined up in Juneau and in front of computers across the country spent the afternoon poring over 24,000 newly released emails from Sarah Palin’s first year and a half as governor, hoping for a bombshell.

But none immediately emerged.

Many of the emails deal with the mundane business of government. Others show her corresponding with aides, admirers and members of her administration about everything from her views on dinosaurs to fisheries policy.

They show her acknowledging encouraging notes from constituents who hope John McCain will pick her as the running mate, as well as startlingly nasty hate mail and death threats. Palin herself is intensively involved in dealing with the press, monitoring her image and complaining about unfair treatment long before she became a national figure known for diatribes against the “lamestream media.”

"Sarah Palin emails provide no big bombshells"

I fully disagree!!!

- It has proved beyond a reasonable doubt that the MSM is nothing but a DNC tool.
- It will propel Sarah's new movie into a huge box office success!!!

Well, they did seem to confirm that Lisa’s old man was a crook.

The bombshell is that the MSM in their pursuit of openness hasn’t cared to obtain and post all of Obama’s 7 years as a State Senator emails.

Sarah needs to go after the Obama emails from 1997 to 2004.,

startlingly nasty hate mail and death threats.

Most of it from Politico staff and readers.

The bombshell is that there are no bombshells.

I thought they'd at least find a grocery list sent to Todd to pick up a quart of milk for the morning.

Maybe they now realize they don’t want people reading the emails—because the emails show Sarah Palin to be a hard working, highly competent woman.

Didn’t her RV exit the highway without using turn signals in Montana?

Maybe Sarah’s pizza date, Mr. Trump can help her out?

After all, he did stir the media pot nicely regarding the CLB for a few weeks...........

I guess her emails are more important to the MSM than "Weiner's Messages to Teenage Girl in Delaware Draw Police Attention".

Is there another person on the planet who has been more examined that Sarah Palin? Don’t we know more about her than anyone else? Her life has become an open book.

It is completely opposite regarding the big 0. We have almost no history on the guy. Why hasn’t Illinois released his emails?

That is correct. And, since Federal money was used to build that hi-way Eric Holder will personally lead the investigation. He has not though, at this point, indicated if he will seek the death penalty. /s

Lisa is as pure as the wind-driven snow, I’m sure. Uh, let’s check HER e-mails, just to be sure.

...which means the “media” needs to start getting “creative” with some of the emails... a slight bit of wordsmithing here... manipulation there.. and voila!!.. a manufactured scandal.

Every couple days, Sarah should put out a little needling message thru Facebook or Twitter aimed at the media:...

“So how`s that email search going? Haven`t found anything yet? Well, keep looking!”

Yea, it would be neat if she copied all her emails to the media—and then asked them to return the favor. I bet that’ll make the rats scurry for their black holes.

If no scandal's found there will be no apology. They'll just move on to the next attack.

Obama will continue to get nothing.

Startling to whom? The level of vitriol leveled at her from the left has been on display for nearly three years.

Why was the first image that came to my mind Geraldo Rivera and Al Capone’s secret vault?

I really don’t understand how anyone has a right to another’s emails, whether official or not, unless part of a criminal probe. And I really don’t understand the difference between this and the kid in TN who hacked her account and ended up on trial.

Just loving that the MSM, after all their effort, got egg on their faces.

You hit the nail on the head. The emails prove that Sarah Palin is exactly not what the MSM says she is.
