MotherJones: Sarah Palin's Emails Revealed: LIVE UPDATES



Mother Jones. Now the mad dash is on, with journalists reviewing (and scanning) these thousands of emails, searching for illuminating or entertaining information regarding the GOPs number-one political celebrity, who remains a possible 2012 presidential contender. (Shortly after the release, Mother Jones, msnbc.com, and ProPublica will post online a searchable archive of the emails.) This saga began with a request David Corn, Mother Jones Washington bureau chief, made almost three years ago. (Read about the full history of the Sarah Palin email saga.)

We'll be posting the latest news here.

excerpt:



1:44 p.m. EST (David Corn): Those Palinwatchers who suspect she may not be Trig's mother might be interested in this email Palin sent on August 2, 2008:

5. Who knows but hey, there's 24,000 emails and they're just opening the boxes now. We shall see but I
agree, I hope there is more email meat content than bones.

2. If you follow David Corn on twitter (@DavidCornDC), you will get
up to the minute, blow by blow stuff.

Sometimes he infuriates me because he tweets SO much, but this is one of the times I'm happy to follow him.

4. I won't be convinced until I see emails prior to the birth and subsequent
controversy that refer to her pregnancy. Personally I think the email is suspicious. It looks to me like Palin is covering her ass.

6. The New Birthers
where's that kid's birth certificate anyway. I think he was born in Russia.

9. I need the video
why haven't they released the birth video. It's a coverup by the same people that did some other coverup that I can't remember right now because there are so many coverups.... And so many silent black helicopters. :tinfoilhat: :tinfoilhat: :tinfoilhat: :tinfoilhat:

16. I agree
That's exactly the sense I got from it, too. That email is radiating CYA.

17. It is reasonable to assume that there must be emails that refer to her
pregnancy prior to her giving birth. Personally I don't see this as a tinfoil hat issue.

11. This seems odd:
Palin doesn't have access to her own public email address?

13. .gov catchall

15. Palin believed Obama "stole" AK's energy rebate idea
"we need to take advantage of this and write a statement saying he's right on. (Glad hes flipflopping on OCS, too.)" etc

Yeah, Sarah. You invented that shit.

18. Starting to get
a funny feeling that this is just another well-coordinated dupe job. She is a media wizard, that Sarah. She will stay on the front pages for at least another week with this.

20. Personally
I'd rather see the e-mails that were sent after the 2008 campaign was over.
