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

Posted on 06/11/2011 9:37:45 PM PDT by jimjohn

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.

...during this seemingly endless near persecution the GOP honchos have done nothing at all to defend her, almost as if they were complicit in trying to destroy someone from “flyover country”.

Indeed. I commented last night, that we haven't heard a peep of support for Governor Palin out of a single Republican hopeful.

For shame...

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

I sense a little something esoteric in that statement, not sure what.......It'll eventually come to me :^)

I caught that too, but thought I'd lay off him tonight. His eyes are probably bloodshot from crying so hard .. LOL

Nothing is wild for an agnostic since they aren’t known for their sanity.

It is going to be interesting to see what impact the information gleaned from these emails has on Independents.

I spoke with a couple tonight at dinner and I almost fell off my chair. They were furious...with the media. It's too small a sample size to mean anything but it will be extremely interesting to see the poll numbers a week or so from now.

In fact, the neighborhood bullies just went out to beat up a girl and came back with their butts kicked up between their ears. That, my FRiends, is a candidate.

How often do you suppose this occurs in a politician's e-mails?

Palin's scheduler sent her a note June 21, 2007, saying Gov. Mitt Romney - who was running for president - wanted to schedule a call to "catch up on things." The aide said Mike Tibbles, her former chief of staff, said she probably wouldn't be interested, and wondered how she should proceed.

"What is his number? Since it may be partisan, I should do this without state assistance. Thanks!" Palin replied.

I’m sure it pained AP to have to write this headline.

While I would have read this anyway, I’m concerned about some of the keywords and topics people are attaching to articles these days, and the ability of anyone to add new topics or keywords. For example, the Bachmann keyword on this article. If I’m looking for Bachmann articles, this one should NOT crop up. By the same token, if I’m looking for Obama articles I don’t want to see Palin articles unless Obama is specifically mentioned in them. It’s not even an inconvenience, really, as articles can be ignored, but I do wonder what provokes people to attach those keywords in the first place.

The off-topic component of this post is now at its conclusion.

Looks like the 80% of Alaskans who thought she was doing a good job as governor were right. But, of course, what do they know.

Here is the way liberals work:

Since the Palin e-mails show no malfeasance, it is clear that they were sanitized prior to being released.

That is the ONLY explanation that liberals will accept because they know Palin is guilty of something.....they just haven’t found it yet.

“ask competitors to subject themselves to the same scrutiny.”

I completely agree, especially if she gets the nomination and can pose that question to Obama, who has benefited from the most aggressive cloistering of his background of any politician in American history.

I just popped over to DU. There is very little on the Palin e-mails except accusations that the media are complicit in selecting Palin to be our nominee.

Regarding Weiner, many are defending him against other liberals who are fed up with his lies. The defenders always retreat to "nothing is proven yet".

Liberal Lunacy --- almost as much fun as morning sex.

Well that's at least a change from the Obama campaign of 08; they're no longer in lockstep with one another. Weiner is the gift that keeps on giving!

What the media has done with Palin’s e-mails is deplorable. If they would have exerted 1/10 of that energy and interest in Obama’s past, he never would have been elected. I believe Palin scares the daylights out of the MSM because if she were to be elected, it would be a game changer for them.

This is a classic case of flawed strategy by an enemy.

Because the left would be destroyed by the revelation of e-mails it sends, they all assume everyone sends such wicked missives back and forth as they do.

Effective strategy sees the enemy as it is rather than as the adversary HOPES it might be.

As long as the left continues to view Sarah Palin as what they THINK she is, they will never lay a glove on her.

Those who would be victorious in conflict have to know the TRUE character of the enemy AND TRUTHFULLY KNOW THEMSELVES.

There is a great line in the movie, "Patton," where the general, using binoculars, is watching Rommel's tanks on the battlefield. He says, "Rommel, you magnificent bastard, I read your book."

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

How about that turncoat traitor aide that wrote the "tell all" book based on Palin e-mails, I'll bet that thing will sell about ten copies.

We already know there is coordination on the left between politicians and the media.

This was all proven in the JournoList revelations!

They probably are firing off fake e-mails to one another because years from now, the Drive By’s will do it again.

Now that's a funny thought. Back in the early 1980s, when the FBI was investigating (and wiretapping) the mob, one of the mobsters (forgot who it was) was tipped off to a wiretap in his home. So he and his mobster friends decided to have a little fun with it. They started having fake conversations about totally inane, everyday subjects. In one conversation, they were actually praising the efforts of law enforcement in ridding their neighborhoods of organized crime. You can imagine the FBI people ripping their headphones off in frustration.

I think we should all make a point to express ourselves by clicking on every article like this on the Palin emails.

Massive traffic to pieces where the OLM (old Left Media, h/t Human Events) has egg on its Palin-obsessed face makes a statement.

“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.”

Governor Palin is in a great position, and she used the enemy to put her there....There is no other conservative candidate out there.....NO ONE who can take the election....If the republicans do not support her for a party run I will write her name in .....Game is over in my book anyway.....My liberal brother who voted democrat last election watched her on the Chris Wallace interview with me and said he would cast a vote for her if she ran....He's not kidding either......

She is in such a strong position and they continue to make her stronger. They cannot help themselves and are imploding. They have met their match with Palin and they know it. Never has a candidate been in such a position to not only break Demonrat myths, but take on their most ardent propagandists who have built the myths of their supposed greatness. The people have not largely questioned what they’ve been fed these yrs., but we see with Palin she is not afraid to take them on and they have done much damage with themselves in their blatant smear campaign that has kept digging and digging and produced nothing but a mass grave for the joke that is the American media and the Demonrat party.

Liberals, esp. the NY Times has just admitted that if you go through every e-mail of any given democrat, something salacious or illegal *will* be found.

Take them up on their admission.

Face it: There is no reason to do what they did with these e-mails from Sarah Palin if what I just wrote were not true.

I will write her name in

Said that months ago, and will still do the same.

There is no way I will vote for a RINO, even if it means we get Ears for another 4 years. The way I look at if we get 4 more of Obama there will not be a democrat party any more. The ultra liberal RINO’s will take over the Democrat party, which they are a part of now, and we will have the new Palin (conservative) Party.

Bachmann is the only other person I will vote for if Palin doesn’t get the nomination.

A politician concerned about her image!!! I'm shocked, shocked!

Henry the Eight (and Mohammed) said something like 'who will rid me of this bothersome man' and their zealots went out and murdered them.

I just wonder, when will the bothersome lamestream media finally die? They are worse than worthless, they make a negative contribution to our nation.

Resign, go away, you have done enough damage. What was it that Cromwell said to the rump parliament? That applies to the media.
