The E-Mail

This whole Todd Palin e-mailing Joe Miller thing is so funny to me. Joe is supposed to be on Megyn Kelly today, so I guess we'll see what he has to say about it.

In politics, people get heated, get misinformation, fight about strategy, etc... No big flippin' deal. You think everyone in Romney's camp are always huggin' and kissin'? (I hope not. That would be a little disturbing.)

I could probe anybody's e-mail account and take one e-mail and conclude one thing. But then if you looked at further replies, clarifications, etc... you come up with a different picture. In politics people go back and forth about stuff all the time. This was a private communication. Todd was ticked off in the heat of the moment and told Joe what he thought about it. Obviously, it blew over. Big whoop.

I didn't have a problem with the way Joe answered the question, but I can understand Todd's response. "What, you couldn't just say "Yes"? Would that have been too hard after she practically put her political life on the line for you?"

The e-mail happened a couple weeks ago. The Palins have done many things to support Joe since then; Todd went on the radio to support him the day before this e-mail was leaked. This was old news to them. Obviously they cleared up whatever miscommunication had occurred, worked it all out, and moved on.

As for Joe forwarding it to his staff saying something like, "This is what we have to deal with. Look at the misconstruction..." I think that ticked off a couple of Palin people, but that's probably what the leak was meant to accomplish. The only reason I could think of that Joe would even forward that to his staff was to serve as an example of how things could be taken out of context. "See? This is what we have to deal with. Look at how things can be misconstrued..."

I could be wrong about that. We'll see what Joe says today, if he even talks about this at all.

Well, at least we have proof now that Sarah Palin writes her own FB posts. And apparently Todd loves his wife. Who'da thunk it?
