AP: Palin - There are no bombshells, no "gotcha" moments.
Buffalo News ^ | Associated Press

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - There are no bombshells, no "gotcha" moments.

The emails of Sarah Palin - more than 24,000 pages of them released Friday by the state of Alaska from her first two years as governor - paint a picture of an image-conscious, driven leader, closely involved with the day-to-day duties of running the state and riding herd on the signature issues of her administration.

Looks like the AP is calling it. If they can't come up with anything by Sunday morning talk show time, I predict my Monday the media will be in circular firing squad mode - if they're not already. Unless something break, the media has just made Sarah Palin the GOP front runner - if she wasn't already.

We can’t elect her, she hasn’t been sufficiently vetted.

The Palin team are just LOL at the MSM as we speak. They probably are firing off fake e-mails to one another because years from now, the Drive By’s will do it again.

I saw on a liberal site they were upset that they left the names, addresses and phone numbers of the people who complained to Sarah (political rant stuff that was clearly a libtard sending the complaint).

They are ticked off because now the Palin defense force can attack her attackers. I think it is sweet justice.

She played the media like a master. She really may be the next Reagan. Reagan didn’t make 100% conservative choices, but he was able to work above the media and make them spin out of control. He was able to deliver inspiring messages that made you feel good about being an American.

I hope she runs.

I think she’s looking better and better. I hope she runs. She will certainly have my support.

I don’t think obammy can beat her.

Good point. Now that she has had a public colonoscopy she can take the high ground and when it gets dirty she can just ask for all her competitors to subject themselves to the same scrutiny.

Exactly. We still don’t know anything about Sarah Palin, she is a mystery.....where are her records? What is she hiding? We cannot let her get away with this.

OK, so Sarah is clean and ready to take over the Presidency. Thank you media.

Now can we please see every email sent to and from Obama the one and a half years he was in the Senate?

That's a mighty high bar. I doubt that many US politicians could withstand a tenth of the scrutiny that Sarah's been through, and survive it.

I thought for sure with the 24,000 page of emails, they would come up with a typo that would make headlines. She’d have to sell the bus if that were the case.

The commie liberal media are pissants that need to be walked on - red high heels seem to get that job done quicker.

The MSM promised the Left there would be plenty of Sarah Palin grade RED MEAT on the table.

But all they got served was cold watery leftover gruel with nary a meaty morsel in sight.

Even the dog's bone is looking good in comparison!

“closely involved with the day-to-day duties of running the state”

As contrasted with playing golf constantly? What about parties with Wagu beef? Or what about a 25k a month liquor bill on the state plane like Pelosi? Any toasting palestinian terrorists? Any deep friendships with communists?

this is what it comes down to. The press knows that those that run for office are attention seeking and desperate for acceptance. Therefore it is easy to compromise any candidate. Take Mccain for example... they heap praise on him, then pull the football away and make him beg for the heroine he desperately wants. Then they own him.

They are desperate to have something on Palin so they can control her. They have nothing and they are panicked. That is what it comes down to. They control the election cycle and they consider it their own territory and game. They cant have someone in the game they do not control.

That is the whole thing you are watching unfold.

Headline: Palin Caused Weinergate, Experts Say

While a review of Palin emails turned up nothing illegal, many commentators are noticing a sinister trend in Palin’s affect on many men, especially liberal men in the pricacy of their own homes.

All of the emails taken together add up to one implication, says the political experts: Palin’s persona may be behind the scandal that lead to Anthony Weiner’s resignation from his Congressional Seat.

“Weiner was forced to send the suggestive Tweets because Palin made him do so,” said one expert.

Palin tweeted Weiner several times urging him to send the 40,000 people on his account the lewd photos. Finally he couldn't resist her constant requests any long and caused the fiasco that ended his career.

(While there is not direct proof this happened, the indirect clues are there for anyone to see.)

Palin is a disgrace to our nation for causing Weiner’s problems. She also inspires violence and shootings, too.

Thought for the day. Say the 100 man work crew has worked 20 hours since the emails were released. Thats 120,000 man minutes. FIVE minutes per email.

They have seen them all by now,, 3 times over. They know there are no sexual affairs, no financial irregularities, no obscene language, nothing that makes her look incompetent, nothing that exposes any blatant hypocrasy.

They are still poring over them hoping for some small way to spin something, anything, against her. But they truly expected her to be dirty like Obama, Pelosi, etc.
They are in shock now. They were waiting on this to bury her.

That is one smart woman. And we should ALL remember this in our daily emails. I assume every single email I send could be used in some sort of suit against me and/or my employer.

I even "soften" jokes so they come across innocuous.

She knew what was in these emails. I’m almost convinced — especially with the release date being pushed back from May 31 to June 10 — that she may have incorporated this into her rollout strategy. Free media rules! LOL.

Palin comes across as very likable and sensible in the handful of emails included in the article.

Thanks media jackals for the unpaid Palin promo!

Maybe we could find a way to generate energy from the jourbalists. We could put the whole gaggle of them on a treadmill, then dangle some tantalizing bit of Palinalia in front of them. Their desperate scampering could probably light up a city until they collapsed from exhaustion.
