So, why, exactly, are Palin's emails being released?

Is this something that states do when their governors leave office? I don't get it.

In any event, the spectacle of the Washington Post and the New York Times pawing through the emails like feral cats poking around a landfill is extremely unedifying, as Little Miss Attila points out in this post.

If Palin is so stupid, so unelectable, so obviously unfit for higher office, then why do the liberals fear her? Because, deep down, most of them know that she's not any of these things. Even if it's only at 3 am in the morning, they have to admit to themselves - they have to know - that Palin is politically savvy, has an excellent shot at getting nominated and elected (if she so chooses), and stands a better chance than practically any other Republican of rolling back the gains liberals have made under Obama.

Either that, or they really are possessed of an almost diabolical kind of hatred.

Update: Rodger Thomas decides to help out.

Update II: Haw!

They hide the emails for that East Anglia climate research org but release hers.

We'll see what happens when and if Rick Perry gets into the race. That will be interesting.

3 A.M.! Heck, this clown can't even negotiate 3 P.M.!!!!!

PDS. As Rush says, she is living rent free in their minds and loving every second of it.

What are they hoping to find? Weiner-style jpegs?
If it turns out Sarah once misspelt 'cat' they'll throw a party.

The emails have been released because of the ancient human disease known as Squeaky Wheel Syndrome - and right now the squeaky wheel is the collection of morons afflicted with Palin Derangement Syndrome.

Well, I think the phrase "preemptive strike" works rather well in this case.

Probably the number one nightmare scenario for progressives in the next presidential election is Sarah Palin running, and winning!

They're just trying to head her off at the pass.

There's a third option: They're all nucking futs.

TW: ummyew. Exactly my point, AI. Exactly my point.

Part of it, I think, is that she doesn't even make a pass at being apologetic for disagreeing with practically everything the "Progressives" think. They're totally unused to anyone ignoring their deeply held belief system. They expect some deference of some kind, and she just blows them off.

Thus, she is a rallying point for everyone who can see that the "Progressive Emperor" has no clothes. They just hate that.

They have maintained their positions of power over the narrative for so long that they hate and fear anyone who simply ignores it.

WV: unblerev -- Sarah misspells "unbeliever". ;->=

The liberal press realizes that they did not fully vet Obama. They are just rectifying their mistake for our next president.

(Just wait 'til they go after Paco's emails.)

All it proved was that she was a fine governor and mother, and got vicious hate mail. ('Surprisingly' said the innocent who reported it).

Perry/Palin or Palin/Perry 2012! I can dream.

Everything they do to foil Sarah implodes on them. It's like a cartoon, they light the bomb, it fizzles out, relight it, fizzle out, relight, then boom, end with their surprised blackened faces. Or the classic Daffy Duck/Bugs Bunny Hunting Season schtick. The Left never learns. In the end all they can do is deflect, and rewrite. Being a Lefty means never having to take responsibility.
