Well the Lamestream Media have been pouring over Sarah Palin's emails for three days now and all they have to show for it is a whole lot of nothing. Over the past three days I have been checking out The Washington Post, The New York Times, The LA Times and other sources to see if any of them have found "the bombshell" they were looking for.
Instead of a bombshell, all they have come away with is a collection of silly stuff that they are trying to make hay over. They have even started telling old stories like they are hearing them for the first time. Here is an example from The UK Daily Mail:
Sarah Palin imagined God talking to her in a deeply touching email she wrote two weeks before her fifth child, Trig, was born with Down's Syndrome, it was revealed today.
The poignant message to family and friends, included in 25,000 pages of her private emails made public on Friday, may alter the way the former Governor of Alaska is viewed by the American public.
In April 2008, two weeks before Trig was born with Down's Syndrome, Mrs Palin sent the email to her friends and family from her official government account.
In the touching message, Mrs Palin writes from the voice of God, as 'Trig's creator, your heavenly father'.
She addresses the 'unreal, sad and confusing' news that her soon-to-be born child will have Down's Syndrome.
The letter's existence had previously known, but only very brief excerpts had been made public.If the Daily Mail would have read Going Rogue, they would have known about the letter and read it in its entirety. This is very old news and nothing bombshell like at all.
The real bombshell that is coming out of these emails appears to be that the media is finding out Palin isn't the evil monster they tried to portray her as. I think in the media's rush to destroy Palin by sensationalizing these emails, they may have just helped Palin to resurrect her public image. Game, match, point Palin!
