24,199 sheets of paper 250 pounds of emails. - Palin emails
Archive of Palin emails is rolling out now at msnbc.com
Alaska hands out 24,199 sheets of paper 250 pounds of emails. The list of withheld documents is online here now. "Everyone should read them," Palin's PAC says.


JUNEAU, Alaska If your idea of an engrossing tour through American history is reading 24,199 pages of emails from Sarah Palin's first two years as governor of Alaska, then set aside some time Friday afternoon and over the next week. A free, searchable, online archive of the former governor's public records will be available Friday through msnbc.com.

That free, public, searchable archive is now online, with the first 533 pages up, at http://palinemail.msnbc.msn.com . Watch that space and the Twitter feed @openchannelblog for updates with the Twitter hashtag #palinemail. All details are in our live blog.

At 9 a.m. in Juneau (1 p.m. ET), the governor's office in Juneau released to reporters 250 pounds of printed emails sent between the former governor (and her husband) and 50 state officials.

"The thousands upon thousands of emails released today show a very engaged Gov. Sarah Palin being the CEO of her state," said a statement from the treasurer of SarahPAC, Tim Crawford. "The emails detail a governor hard at work. Everyone should read them." :rofl:

1. I wonder if these were vetted at all.
If not, Then there's likely some stupidity of some kind buried in there.

3. I think any of the really good stuff will be either redacted or withheld from the release....
State of Alaska already said they were holding back 2000+ emails due to privacy or legal concerns. I also think they were emails from amongst the inner Palin staff. Read somewhere on MSNBC site that there's also a problem with attachments - they're not being included or something like that.

Probably lots of juicy pickings among those 2,000+.

Who knows....

5. Yeah, well, the picture painted in Frank Bailey's book is an administration
that was obsessed with trying to influence online polls, manufacturing LTTE campaigns, and going after anyone who dared criticize La Palin. He's got lots of emails to prove it, too.

6. I wish the entire can of worms were revealed in B&W - no way to spin any of that
no matter how hard they try. I'm so sick of this grifting POS and long for the day she becomes as significant as a grain of sand. How often we see sand grains splattered across the airwaves.

Too bad citizens can't get the 411 on all politicians the same way our government can get the 411 on it's citizens.

It really should be a two-way street.
