And they both ... solicited help from their readers in going through them looking for interesting and newsworthy e-mails to look at. Mother Jones, ProPublica, and MSNBC are creating a searchable database for the emails. The time and effort the Left pour into trying to completely destroy Palin is "unflippinbelievable!" They must be afraid of something. That or they are mentally ill.
As the UK Guardian reported " “Tens of thousands of pages of Sarah Palin's emails released on Friday offer an intimate portrait of a politician caught in an almost daily battle on issues ranging from oil exploration to an ethics investigation."
John Hayward of Human Events commented "Does anyone think the media dove into the Governor’s correspondence looking to prepare an “intimate portrait” of her “daily battles?”
And I think this is the obsession. So certain are they that she is both idiot and evil incarnate, that they know it must be there. And if they can't find it, after all of their public proclamations and rantings, well it just has to be because they aren't looking hard enough.
Just look at this comment on the NYT Caucus blog post, the day before the release:

Well apparently we've learned nothing of the sort. (And why is it that it's lauded when First Ladies to help make decisions, but not when it's First Dudes?)
These e-mails will reveal the reality and factual information that the $arah worshippers have denied since the disgraced "Half-Term Quitter" became the failed VP loser in 2008. We will learn that Todd actually was the decision-maker in many of Alaska's affairs. We will also learn that $arah and Todd made countless efforts to cover-up their illegal dealings, both public and private. Additionally, all the excuses she attempted to sell to the media and her followers about why she quit will be discounted and found to be total fabrications and misrepresentations. Maybe SarahPAC will run another illegal Bus Tour so she can fool the people one more time. She remains the P. T. Barnum of 2011.
Did you know that the Palins had a bunch of illegal dealings that they covered up? I wonder if john john even knew what any of them allegedly were, or if he just knew there had to be something? Or if he can enlighten us as to why it's illegal for a private citizen, or even a public one for that matter -- to take a bus tour of national historical sites? And I still don't get why even some conservatives (who theoretically would be more sympathetic to her) question the reasoning she gave for her resignation? As Bill Whittle commented on the legal debt the Palins incurred over politically motivated frivolous lawsuits filed against her that all failed, $500,00 is real money to the Palins, and it's real money to you and me. It was clear that she'd only incur more due to the nature of the unique Alaskan law, and that constantly fighting them and working on information requests was interfering with the running of the state. Who here believes that would not be true? But I digress.
Fortunately, a lot of the comments went the other way, asking why the Times didn't have people go through the 2,000+ pages of the health care bill, or why they don't solicit help getting to Obama's school records or his emails for that matter? Or Pelosi's, or Biden's?
I did rather like this one:
All of this seems pathetic and disturbing. And it is apparently, once again, blowing up in their collective, collectivist faces.Topix New York, NY June 9th, 2011 4:38 pm
