From the Brit papers (naturally)
The trove of more than 13,000 emails detailing almost every aspect of Sarah Palin’s governorship of Alaska, released late on Friday, paints a picture of her as an idealistic, conscientious, humorous and humane woman slightly bemused by the world of politics.
One can only assume that the Left-leaning editors who dispatched teamsofreporters to remote Juneau, the Alaskan capital, to pore over the emails in the hope of digging up a scandal are now viewing the result as a rather poor return on their considerable investment.
If anything, Mrs Palin seems likely to emerge from the scrutiny of the 24,000 pages, contained in six boxes and weighing 275 pounds, with her reputation considerably enhanced. As a blogger at Powerline noted, the whole saga might come to be viewed as “an embarrassment for legacy media”.
Alas, the Lamestream media is incapable of being embarrassed. I have maintained that Palin was always more qualified to be President that Obumbler. The echo chamber would not stop shrieking long enough to even think about it in a rational manner. Palin was running for Veep, not President. She had more executive experience, was more grounded in reality and, frankly, is a nicer person to be around.
Well… How about a Cain/Palin (Or Palin/Cain) ticket in 2012. Let’s really give the left something to sputter about.
