Can you explain the point of the “Left” and biased media going to Alaska for an email hunt? Of course you can explain it! The reason is obvious isn’t it?
What did both the New York Times and the Washington Post expect to find? They were HOPING to find something, anything, on Palin that they could use against her. Because of their need to silence her they actually asked for 30 unpaid volunteers to help them go through the massive number of emails from Palin when she was governor? A little desperate wouldn’t you say?
What they found, to their dismay, was something all right: that Palin was an effective Governor, that she is a good mother, and that she is committed to her political obligations — not at all the dirty laundry they expected to find.
Although the witch-hunt is supposed to discredit Palin, they actually did the opposite. Instead, they proved that Palin is a viable threat to “Government Business as Usual” policies. She is the spirit behind the TEA Party Movement, and the shot in the arm that the movement needs to keep it energized.
The way government has successfully silenced people in the past is expose their “dirty laundry”! They do it because it works, because people love hearing about the “dirty laundry”. It also causes divisiveness between the parties and the movement. In other words, the best way to win the war is to divide the people — and Palin is on their hit list for that reason.
The truth is, Palin is disrupting government’s “business as usual” policy. Constituents are watching government closely and keeping up communications with their representatives. The PEOPLE are making their representatives accountable for their work in Washington.
Since the November 2010 elections, the Grass Roots Movement (called the TEA Party) has sent their own representative to Washington. “We The People” gave them a mandate to change policy and to put it back in the hands of “The People”.
Palin is the voice of the “Common People”, those the elite have ignored for years, and gives the career politician in both parties a reason to want to stop her from spreading her message and from energizing the TEA Party Grass Roots Movement.

We all know the reason why the media barbarians descended on Juneau. They wanted to find something on Palin. As Don Henley once sang, “Give us dirty laundry!”
And not only did the reporters go on location but, incredibly, both the New York Times and the Washington Post asked for unpaid volunteers to read some of the emails with the hope of finding something, anything, on Mrs. Palin. So I guess this is the journalism of the future—”Hey, you, can you research this story for me? I have to go to dinner.”
After all that, here is what the Washington Post came up with: “The emails provide a revealing look at an ambitious rookie politician finding her way in the corridor of power.” If that’s not Pulitzer stuff, I don’t know what is.
Here’s the New York Times‘ assessment: “What is clear in the 24K pages of her emails is that her governing style was not necessarily an either-or proposition. Sometimes she seemed to be everything all at once.” Really? Fascinating.
Like Casey, the media struck out. The laundry was clean and neatly-folded.
The Palin-email exposition is the best example of a political witch-hunt that I have ever seen. Did the media demand to see Senator Obama’s correspondence while in office? How about Governor Romney’s email experience? No, the media did not.
A fair-minded person has to wonder what it is about Sarah Palin that makes the press so aggressive towards her. Putting aside her conservative ideology which makes many media people ill, I think it’s her glamour. The governor is good looking and feisty. She commands attention by her very appearance.
In our shallow, reality-show driven society, Mrs. Palin has become a star not because of her public service, but because of her movie star-like marketing. There she is in the Alaskan woods looking great on camera. Here she comes in a new film touting her love for America. Move over Jennifer Anniston, there’s a new friend in town: Sarah Palin.
In the end, the media’s obsession with Sarah Palin actually helps her. Americans know when a person is being persecuted. Like her or not, Mrs. Palin does not deserve the level of scrutiny being foisted upon her and her family. She’s just a politician, people, not Kim Kardashian.
I could not have said it better. What do you think about this outrageous move of the “Left” to attack Sarah Palin more than they have ever scrutinized others, in particular, their own Barack H. Obama?
What do you think the media should be doing instead of going after Sarah Palin?
