Palin’s Gubernatorial Emails Unleashed in Alaska

In response to Freedom of Information Act requests made by the elite liberal media, the world is now privy to reams, literally, of emails written by then-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin during her truncated tenure in office. Let’s give them a look, shall we?

Palin might enjoy the image of grabby-handed reporters scrambling to find scoops among the more than 24,000 pages, as the emails were delivered in printed format in Juneau. Among the items that The New York Times’ team had discovered by Friday afternoon were email exchanges about Palin’s controversial tanning bed (no self-respecting governor goes without) and about Palin’s surprising enthusiasm for the energy proposals advanced by a presidential contender in 2008 by the name of Barack Obama.  —KA

The New York Times:

In 2011, Ms. Palin is one of President Obama’s fiercest critics on energy policy, regularly lambasting him for placing limits on oil drilling and accusing him of damaging America’s economy by forcing a reliance on foreign sources of energy.

In a post on her Facebook page in March, Ms. Palin wrote that “this administration is not a passive observer to the trends that have inflated oil prices to dangerous levels. His war on domestic oil and gas exploration and production has caused us pain at the pump, endangered our already sluggish economic recovery, and threatened our national security.”

But she didn’t always feel that way.

At the beginning of August in 2008, several weeks before she was tapped to be Senator John McCain’s running mate, Ms. Palin gushed about an energy policy speech given by then-candidate Barack Obama.

You are coming unglued reynolds and are extremely troubled.  In
desperation you grab at whatever guano you can to insult me, but I
am the shepotamus, impervious.  Your insults are only of humorous
value.  The jury of public opinion will judge you, I don’t have to.

that would be a no, then. let us trace its, i mean
your circuitous confusion; you are treated to your
own words and you go completely berserk. you are
outraged that someone might regard you with such
contempt as you have, word for inappropriate word,
heaped upon them. you do not for a second consider
that the object of your pointless contumely might
not have enjoyed it, either, but, instead, redouble
your abuses. it goes nowhere. can you see that?
how does it work in real life when your audience
risks neutrality, or dares disagreement with you? do
you conjecture about their childhood misfortune? and
what of yours? it appears to have been dire.
you are seriously unbalanced. you’re not well. you
lie, not that i think you are able to discern truth. if ever there were a walking advert for a disordered
psyche, it’s you, it; shenoncomposmentis.

It notices that the stench emitting from your brain that resides
in your AH is the source of your remarks that stink sky high.  It
notices how your fetid and shrinking brain can barely think.  Your
Foulness will soon cease to think at all, treading and finally
dissolving in all your rotting brain tissue.  Brain dead is what it and
everyone else will know is the ooh ooh, aah aaher’s predicament.

Gee reynolds, someone else has noticed your hateful troll posts
to and about me.  It wasn’t me who reported you!  If you haven’t
noticed I am doing just fine with all the garbage you send my way. 
I don’t hate you in the least.  I find you an absolute fool.  You have
become a joke and my friends and I can’t wait to read what fecal
matter you post next.  At least the Webmaster is alert to it. I haven’t
forgotten the threat of harm you made towards me on another
forum. I cautioned you then about the rules of conduct on Truthdig.

I see you can’t take responsibility for your own BS though.  Figures,... a
flamer like you would.  Freedoms?  What a laugh.  You act like a
prisoner of his own mental crap.  Might be time for a good flushing.
 
There is a social psychology of hatred that you exhibit and that
pathology often involves physical harm to someone.  Projecting it as
hatred on blogs is hopefully one way to release some bad energy and
you don’t hurt anyone physically.  Typically the hatred you embody
through flaming posts, in this case toward me, is always a learned habit
of mind gained in childhood of hatred toward women in general. 
Probably some female really made you feel inferior and it has carried
over into your adult (ahem, debatable you have advanced to the adult
stage) life.  You focus on me because I don’t take your crap and
smallness of mind.  It’s predictable you will waste your life and
emotions on such drivel and then at end of it you will have accrued
absolutely nothing of any value to have lived it.

Truthdig monkey-sees like you, reynolds, have no intelligence of their
own, who are banana-brained mimickers of those who have their
own brilliance.  Thank you for giving me so many opportunities to
show my radiance.  I look forward to the next one.

Truthdig monkey-sees are lazy in body as well as mind and don’t use
toilets but crap in their chair like the undisciplined animals that
they are.  It must get very messy.  But then your mind is a mess
anyway.

Hey, how’m I doin’?  Pretty good, eh?  You like to be used as a floor
mop, don’t you?  I have an unending supply of mops for Truthdig
monkeysees like you.

God, what’s that smell???  Why it’s reynolds crapping on the
forum again!

Republican cacklers are reminiscent of frenetic chickens when it’s
feeding time.  They all peck alike, cluck alike, and crap alike. 

For the Palin fans, keep PITW.  Palin doesn’t rate even triviality, and
is only an aberration in politics . 

Mixing metaphors of religious right with the liberal left is claptrap in
its finest.  The comparison between liberals with communist tyranny
is absurd.  There are many on the MSM who are thick with the
Republicans and their coziness with the wealthy class.

And the fundamentalist religious zealots of 21st century America—busybodies/no-talented press hacks/hapless journalists/commie/socialist/democrat/leftist ideologues—begin their long-desired Salem Witch hunts on behalf of their gods the Party and the State.

Keep going after the insignificant, making her a true victim. There was a time in the U.S. when such acts were discussed in schools across the nation as the torments of people living under the tyranny of the former Soviet Union and Red China.

No way is this going to backfire on the Left, after all, the MSM is seen as a paragon of virtue and non-partisanship in the eyes of all.

An interesting comment on one article with a picture of reporters with cart loads of boxes of Palin’s e-mails stated that all those reporters loading boxes resembled pigeons in a park when one throws out a few bread crumbs.

center who can shut her up is beyond belief.  Are the so-called

How anyone can even call her “Governor” Palin is pathetic.  She ought
to be called Half Governor with Half a Mind Palin.

We all have too much leisure time on our hands. Now,if we only had jobs we could spend 14hrs each day Mon-Sat working away and we wouldn’t have time to read about DRIVEL like this. Actually I haven’t even read it… just can’t bring myself to do so. Now if she were to appear on the centre-fold of Playboy I would buy a copy and pin that on my dart board, then I’d have hours of fun.

Truthdig - PLEASE, OH PLEASE quit posting articles about Sarah Palin.

I’m serious, PLEASE just stop doing it.

There is no “truth” to dig from her or her publicly fabricated persona. Several of my friends, relatives and next door neighbors are far more interesting and, dare I say, influential than this woman.

Every time you waste space on her, it truly angers me. You’re better than this.

And next month, my children, your assignment will be to study the entrails of goats and camels splattered upon the barren wastes of Afghanistan after being successfully Tomahawked by our brave troops struggling in a vain attempt to build a nation from a cluster of mud huts and mysogynistic bearded moron-savages. To try to determine the date of demise of not only that misbegotten, doomed-to-fail enterprise, but also the most-likely timing of the death of the recently impoverished, once-grand experiment-in-democracy, known as the United States of America.

The cause of both these failures is, of course, massive stupidity-induced ignorance, hypocrisy, deception and terminal mendacity, and greed, on a scale seldom, if ever, seen before, even among the many continuous catastrophes the human race has inflicted upon itself. So, in a sense, the concentration on the trivia of a Sarah Palin may be a useful metaphor for the ills and ridiculosity of the human race that devolution has imposed upon us…to waste our time and thus, the incredible gift of life with which we were blessed…or would have been, had we had the sense to appreciate it and use it for meaningful, intelligent, rational and useful purposes.
