Throwback Thursday: The Tale of Two Email Rages





Three years ago, "activists" on a witch hunt along with an excited lapdog media were anticipating the release of almost 25,000 emails that spanned Governor Palin’s time spent as governor:

Impatient Cookie Monster

On the day these emails were released, "a throng of reporters" gathered into Juneau.

 

Excited Crowds

Once obtained, the media realized they bit of more than they could chew, so they called upon their readers for help in finding their smoking gun…

But, it was to no avail.  Their plan backfired and the Palin deranged fell flat on their faces:

Fail

"No ‘gotcha’ moments: Sarah Palin’s emails show engaged, driven leader"

 Standing O

Of course, nobody came out to tell the media or these Palin deranged whackos that all of that effort was an extremely poor waste of resources.

Today, we have one of the federal government’s largest agencies, the IRS, embroiled in a massive scandal over their treatment of conservative groups over the last few years.  As part of that investigation, emails within the agency were requested for viewing.  The IRS scandal is now being described as being worse than Watergate by the Wall Street Journal, yet Politico reports that the hard drives containing these public interest emails have been destroyed and an IRS source admits that the emails are likely "gone forever."

Governor Palin challenged Americans to try giving such lame excuses to the IRS next tax season to see what kind of response they’d get:

Obama’s IRS top dog claims a communications gap of 1,052,000 minutes. Hmm. Wonder if the press will recognize similarities. Maybe a smidgen? The IRS claims it just “lost” two years worth of email records sent to and from the central figure in their harassment of conservatives scandal. Try claiming that next tax season: “Oops-a-daisy, computer crash, all records gone, so… just trust me on what I claim I owe you, IRS.”

In addition to that, I’d like to challenge you to think of what the media’s response would have been to Governor Palin and/or the State of Alaska if they had claimed their hard drives crashed and that Governor Palin’s near 25,000 emails were "gone forever."

    Gov. Palin is the BEST deal we gonna get.
    Gov. Palin is a TRUE reformer and a REAL leader in America right now.
    What more can the Obama/democrats/liberals and RINOs do to attack
    Gov. Palin?
    Sift over her 41,000 (1st set 24,000, 2nd set 17,000) pages e-mail again?
    They got NOTHING on her!!!

    Obama/democrats/liberals and RINOs always praise
    those they fear LESS and vilify those they fear MOST.
    .
    .

    We the People send our regards
    To: democrats/liberals/socialists/communists and RINOs
    From: On behalf of Gov. Palin, We the People defenders of the U.S. Constitution, conservatives/Tea partiers

    I’ll never forget the "crowd-sourcing" foaming at the mouths of The Washington Post, the Uruguay, sorry, London/Manchester Guardian and what is supposedly our country’s most prestigious magazine. Look at the pathetic postscript at the bottom of KIng Geraldo Solomon Rivera’s mines. Shuck and jive!

    How did that vendetta work out for them?
    Remember the 11 AP fact-checkers for Going Rogue? The ACA only got two.

    Obama is a Nazi/Commie/Islaofascist and a traitor. He swore in his oath of office to uphold the Constitution of the United States. Instead the only work he does beside playing golf and feeling up Bergdahl’s mother is to destroy our Constitution and every human right we have,

    Ah I remember the day well when the Sarah Palin e-mails were released.
    Some months earlier there was a rumor that Sarah Palin had a breast augmentation, and Greta van Susteren asked her point blanck if that was true. Of course it wasn’t, but the blogosphere had been buzzing with rumors. So I made a "Limerick" about it
    Sarah Palin was facing the Great Inquisition

    by left-leaning bloggers, they reached no decision,

    on things of great weight,

    like shape, size and height.

    As for perfect figure: There was no incision.

    Nobody thought anything about it. No hits.

    Until Aug 10, 2011 The day the e-mails were released. Then suddenly 523 hits.

    People were crazy searching for incriminating evidence, so much so that Andrea Mitchell held an expanded session asking for citizen input about the e-mails. She asked people to keep trying to find anything.

    I searched too, and the best I could come up with was

    A hard-working governor showing true grit

    and wit: Can you flippinbelieveit?

    She turned the tables

    on media fables.

    The true Sarah Palin: A Presidentfit.

    http://lenbilen.com/2012/02/09/can-you-flippinbelieveit-sarah-palins-e-mails-a-limerick/

    and

    With e-mails galore from then Governor Palin

    The MSM hoped to put the last nail in

    her coffin. The Press horde

    instead fell on their sword.

    Soon President Palin we all may be hailin’.

    http://lenbilen.com/2012/02/09/sarah-palins-e-mails-a-limerick/

    There were three more dates of interest Aug 10, 2011, with 1752 hits,

    Sep 15 with 1178 hits and Apr 15 2012 with 824 hits.

    Nothing on my blogsite has ever come close to these levels.
    Then Sarah decided not to run, and the excitement faded.
    Now is the time, Sarah!!
    The IRS e-mails on the other hand. No-one in the press except for Fox News is even reporting it.

    And this scandal is much bigger than the 18 1/2 min gap in the Watergate tapes!!
