    Re: American Way: Sarah Palin email frenzy backfires on her media antagonists

    I never thought we'd find anything terribly surprising in there. I've always thought she was just someone in way over her head - no more no less.

    It's true a lot of her emails were redacted from the released emails. Do I think it matters? I dunno. And I frankly don't care. No matter how well-intending the released emails make her look, it still doesn't change that I think she's unfit to hold office.

    Not all us libs sit around hoping scandal on the opposition. Sometimes we just think a politician is genuinely bad at their job. You can be bad at your job even if you're idealistic and conscientious.

    Now much of the right wing ideology becomes very clear and understandable. Make up your mind based only on selective information carefully culled from a much larger base of data. And then attack others who point out what you have done.

    Sorry to have brought up something so unpleasant and disturbing as the actual truth that the emails were redacted.

    The fact that emails were redacted is neither unpleasant nor disturbing. You ASSumptions about why some were redacted is unpleasant and disturbing. Unless you have evidence there was some cover up, then your theory is nothing more than a conspiracy theory, and you know where you can put it...

    How does one get evidence that has been redacted ---- or the actual words have been COVERED UP?

    Can you answer that?

    Why the needless personal insults? Highlighting in capitals the first three letters in assmuptions to make the ASS obvious? Telling me to put it where I know to? How does such personal vitriol help your defense of Palin?

    Your problem, not mine. You think there is a conspiracy, you know where to put it.

    If you feel insulted, feel free to report that post and see if the moderating team agrees with you.

    My post was much more about you not wasting bandwidth up here, when nonsense like your theory should be in the proper forum.

    You seem to be ignoring the questions here in favor of your usual defense of "I was not given the death penalty so I did not kill anybody": how does making personal insults to me strengthen your defense of Sarah Palin?

    Again, if the evidence has been blacked out and edited, how does one get that same evidence?

    As I said.. if you feel somehow slighted by my post, you're encouraged to report it and let the moderating team decide.

    As for proving anything you said on this subject, again... not my problem. If you are so adament that there was a coverup, even without evidence as in this case, then that is a conspiracy theory and you know where to put it.

    13,000 emails. Holy **** - that's, what, 19 a day if this is just a 2 year timespan. Of course it's far MORE than that.

    Dayum - lay off the internet. What do they do - backup every email to a file or something at the end of the day? Geesh man - ever heard of spring cleaning? Lordie man. I email a few emails a week and that feels like a bit much to me.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I have only the last 2 years worth of emails stored, company policy, and I have about 27,000.

    Oh but it most certainly is your problem when you accuse me of going off on some conspiracy theory with the implication being that I have nothing to go on and it is up to me to prove anything. So I ask you again since you defended the emails, the redactions and have criticized me for pointing it out -

    How does one acquire evidence of the content of the emails when the actual content of the emails has been edited or blacked out?

    How does the mention of this fact of reality distrub you and cause you to make personal attacks on me?

    You taking me on in this manner absolutely makes it your problem.
