From The Hill:
The emails released on Friday show Palin’s office repeatedly trying to defend her and criticize Murkowski by comparing their spending habits.
Well golly gee! If you publicly examine 24,000 pages you are compelled to complain about something!
Dozens of media have tried as feebly and failed as miserably as The Hill to generate Palin tongue clicking.
On the other hand, The Telegraph (U.K.) just led with the goodness they found:
American Way: Sarah Palin email frenzy backfires on her media antagonists
The trove of more than 13,000 emails detailing almost every aspect of Sarah Palin’s governorship of Alaska, released late on Friday, paints a picture of her as an idealistic, conscientious, humorous and humane woman slightly bemused by the world of politics.
One can only assume that the Left-leaning editors who dispatched teams of reporters to remote Juneau, the Alaskan capital, to pore over the emails in the hope of digging up a scandal are now viewing the result as a rather poor return on their considerable investment.
If anything, Mrs Palin seems likely to emerge from the scrutiny of the 24,000 pages, contained in six boxes and weighing 275 pounds, with her reputation considerably enhanced. As a blogger at Powerline noted, the whole saga might come to be viewed as “an embarrassment for legacy media”.
