Palin's Yahoo! Account Hacked

Updated 8:37 p.m.
By Michael D. Shear and Karl Vick
A group of computer hackers said yesterday they accessed a Yahoo! e-mail account of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the Republican vice presidential nominee, publishing some of her private communications to expose what appeared to be her use of a personal account for government business.

The hackers posted what they said were personal photos, the contents of several messages, the subject lines of dozens of e-mails and Palin's e-mail contact list on a site called WikiLeaks.org. That site claimed that it received the electronic files from a group identifying itself only as "Anonymous."

"At around midnight last night some members affiliated with the group gained access to governor Palin's email account, 'gov.palin@yahoo.com' and handed over the contents to the government sunshine site Wikileaks.org," said a message on the site.

Rick Davis, the campaign manager for Sen. John McCain, issued a statement Wednesday afternoon condemning the incident.

"This is a shocking invasion of the Governor's privacy and a violation of law," Davis said. "The matter has been turned over to the appropriate authorities and we hope that anyone in possession of these e-mails will destroy them. We will have no further comment."

The episode focuses attention on Palin's use of her personal e-mail account as lawmakers in Alaska probe whether she fired the state's police commissioner, Walter Monegan, because he refused to take action against her brother-in-law, a state trooper at the time.

Palin has come under fire in recent days for her use of a personal e-mail accounts to conduct state business. An Alaska activist has filed a Freedom of Information Act request seeking disclosure of e-mails from another Yahoo! account that Palin used, gov. sarah@yahoo.com.

That account appears to have been linked to the one that was hacked.

Both accounts appear to have been deactivated. E-mails sent to them Wednesday afternoon were returned as undeliverable.

Andrée McLeod, the activist who filed the FOIA request, said Wednesday evening that Palin should have known better than to conduct state business using an unsecured e-mail account.
"If this woman is so careless as to conduct state business on a private e-mail account that has been hacked into, what in the world is she going to do when she has access to information that is vital to our national security interests?" she asked.

McLeod's Anchorage attorney, Donald C. Mitchell, said Palin refused to comply with a public records request in June to divulge 1,100 e-mails sent to and from her personal accounts, citing executive privilege.

"There's a reason the governor should be using her own official e-mail channels, because of security and encryption," the attorney said. "She's running state business out of Yahoo?"
McCain officials did not return calls and e-mails seeking further comment on the hacking episode and McLeod's remarks.

The images of the Yahoo inbox posted by hackers is stippled with the names of Palin aides using both official and private e-mail addresses.

Among the e-mails released as part of the records request in June were several from Frye asking a state official whether private e-mail accounts and messages sent to BlackBerry devices are immune to subpoena, then reporting the answer to the governor and her husband, Todd, who also uses a Yahoo! mail address.

One e-mail referenced "Draft letter to Governor Schwarzenegger / Container Tax" and another said "DPS Personnel and Budget Issues," an apparent reference to the Alaska Department of Public Safety.

Michael Allison, the CEO of the Internet Crimes Group, a private company specializing in Internet security, said the hackers may have gained access to Palin's account by using publicly available information to guess her password, or by using a small program called a trojan to capture her keystrokes.

"I would hope the authorities would be all over this," Allison said. "The only deterrent is that people know the certainty of being caught."

The questions. Did Palin take a STATE issued Blackberry/windows mobile device to retrieve her PERSONAL (security lacking) Yahoo account to circumvent being "tracked". State business is state business and public officers law provide that clarity. If Sarah used her POP 3 email account to conduct state business, frankly she committed a crime. Especially if the mobile device was paid for by taxpayers. There is no ducking this one Governor.

The attack on Governor Sarah Palin’s privacy is inexcusable. Americans have constitutional guarantees, among them the right to be secure in their papers. In a hastily worded statement the Associated Press informed the Secret Service, “No way dude, are we givin’ up them emails. Ask anybody; she got hacked fair & square. Like get your own story man, this one’s ours.” Due to the nature of the electronic medium, the Palin case should be groundbreaking.

Again, Mr. cell phone is not your friend: whenever one’s cell phone is switched on, just turned on, even if it's not a GPS enabled device, it emits a signal that anyone who obtains your SIM card number may track with an array of inexpensive software. GOOGLE GPS tracking devices. The phone’s speaker can also be remotely activated for use as a listening device. Perhaps you’re wondering, as did I, how certain individuals seem to know your whereabouts, or manage to show up when and where they do. High tech lends the good, the bad & the ugly a level of sophistication hitherto unimagined. Suggest: remove the battery when not in use: http://theseedsof9-11.com

I would hope that the politicians would know the certainty of being caught/hacked. Sorry kids, you don't get to blame teh eeeeevil hackers when you do something this dumb.

Just be glad that it was someone who alerted people to this, rather than someone who sold the information to a third party.

This should be a warning to all. I wonder how many Yahoo, Hotmail, etc... e-mail accounts have been deleted by our politicians in the last couple of days. It would be interesting to know.

While there's no law per se against a private citizen gathering evidence, and, wow, some of these comments, people do things everyday for which they might be held to account. Not that Governor Palin is among them. I’d expect to find nothing incriminating. Citizens do have rights though, the right to be secure in their papers among them. Due to the electronic medium, the Sarah Palin case should be groundbreaking. Here’s something for the less technologically inclined: whenever one’s cell phone is switched on, not necessarily making a call, just turned on, that even if it's not a GPS enabled device, it emits a signal that anyone who could access your SIM card number may track with an array of inexpensive software.

LOL I think it's hilarious how everyone ignored the comments by "Anonymous" who claims to be one of the people from Anonymous, the alleged group behind the hack. Nope, instead we're just going to keep pointing fingers at those damn immoral liberals.

I am disappointed by many of the previous comments. I see that many people are automatically pegging either liberals or democrats for this.

How could you be so presumptive and divisive? This was the actions of an individual, not a community or a line of thinking.

Assuming and blaming liberals or democrats so automatically is completely shameful.

She conducted state business on Yahoo, because she thought she would be protected from public scrutiny.

Yes. And shouldn't the same thing apply to Senator Obama? Senator McCain released hundreds of pages of medical records while Senator Obama released one paragraph from his Doctor even though Obama wrote about his heavy drug use in his earlier years in his own book. Do you know wnough about Obama?

the internet entity known as "Anonymous" claims to be behind this hack. They have been hacking and publicly protesting Scientology for quite some time. Also, you might remember they were linked to the NFL stadium bomb threats. These people scare me. They have little to no respect for authority and enjoy hacking people "for the LULZ" (saw that on youtube). What's worse is that they seem capable of quick organization without any percieved "central command."

Throughout the entire primaries and the general election, the Obama campaign has played dirty politics. In addition to the never ending vitriol of the Obama bloggers on the internet, nearly every time I have posted a supportive blog for Hillary Clinton ... and, then for McCain/Palin ... my computer's mailbox has been inundated with hundreds of pieces of email spam. Another example of under handed behavior by Obama's henchmen, is that they have been organized to approach retirement homes, as volunteer community speakers ... only to visit multiple times spewing lop sided pro-Obama, and negative McCain propaganda to elderly people, to get their votes in November. And, now we can see unprincipled politicians and bias media hacks using the race card ... telling people " if you don't vote for Obama, you must be a racist". Usually, when Americans uncover such despicable tactics, they can count on the mainstream media to expose it to the public ... however, in this case, most of the mainstream media is in the tank for Obama ... so, they either look the other way, or they make phony biased excuses to mischaracterize, and cover up what's really happening.

REPUBLICANS HAVE A PLAN TO KILL ANY REMAINING HUMANS IN THE AFTERLIFE OR POLESHIFT

SO FOR YOUR OWN SAKE DON'T VOTE FOR A REPUBLICAN THIS NOVEMBER BECAUSE POLE SHIFT IS POSSIBLE DURING THE NEXT PRESIDENTS TENURE. AND HAVE YOU GUYS WONDER WHY REPUBLICANS BUSH AND NOW MCCAIN WANTING TO CONTINUE
AND EXPAND THE SPYING PROGRAM? TO SAVE US FROM TERRORITS?
I DIDN'T THINK SO BUT TO TAKE CONTROL IN THE AFTERLIFE AND LOOK TO REMOVE ANYONE THREATENING THEM WHICH INCLUDES THE U.S. CITIZENS.

REPUBLICANS BELIEVE THAT U.S. CITIZENS ARE THE TERRORISTS AND THAT THE TERRORISTS THE MAJORITY OF U.S. CITIZENS BELIEVE IN ARE ACTUALLY BENEFITING THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, THUS REPUBLICANS ARE A FRIEND TO TERRORISTS WHICH MEANS ONLY ONE THING. YOU ARE CONSIDERED A TERRORIST TO THEM BECAUSE THEY SAY YOU WOULD INTERFERE WITH THEM AFTER THE POLESHIFT REGARDLESS OF WHETHER YOU ARE A REPUBLICAN OR A DEMOCRAT MATTERS NOT. WHICH IS WHY THEY ARE CONTINUTING TO EXPAND THE SPYING PROGRAM TO MAKE SURE THEY KEEP AN EYE ON ANY POTENTIAL THREATS ON U.S. SOIL WHICH INCLUDES THE U.S. CITIZENS. I'LL BET YOU ANYTHING THAT A REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED WHITE HOUSE OR CONGRESS DURING AND AFTER THE POLESHIFT ASSURES YOUR DEATH AND THESE COWARDS GOING TO THEIR BUNKERS WHILE ALL OF YOU SUFFER FROM STARVATION OR FROM DEHYDRATION. OBAMA DOESN'T EVEN KNOW THE COMING POLE SHIFT, HE JUST HEARD RUMORS AND I'M SURE THAT HE HAS NO PLANS TO BETTER HIMSELF AFTER THE POLE SHIFT BUT TO ONLY AID AND ASSIST THOSE IN NEED.

MCCAIN KNOWS OF THE COMING POLE SHIFT AND THIS MEANS TROUBLE. ITS FUNNY HOW SOME PEOPLE ARE VOTING FOR MCCAIN THIS NOVEMBER BUT THEN THEY INTEND YOUR DEATH AFTER THE POLE SHIFT FOR THOSE REMAINING THAT STILL SURVIVED.
I HAVE A FAMILY WITH 5 KIDS AND I FEEL LIKE I WILL BE IN DANGER EVEN IF I SURVIVE THE POLE SHIFT BECAUSE OF THE REPUBLICANS AND THEIR SPYING PROGRAM.

I ACTUALLY HAD A DREAM ABOUT THIS EXACT EVENT LAST NIGHT POTENTIALLY HAPPENING. THIS IS NO ACCIDENT AND IT FELT SO REAL. I WAS ALSO SHOWN JOHN MCCAIN AND PALIN TOGETHER TALKING ABOUT HOW TO CONTROL THE HUMAN POPULATION AND HOW TO WEED THEM OUT THROUGH VARIOUS DISEASES. FOR MY FAMILY AND YOUR FAMILY'S SAKE DON'T VOTE FOR THESE TWO FACE
IDIOTS. OBAMA IN MY DREAM WAS SHOWN AS A COMPASSIONATE MAN WHO LOOKED TO AID THOSE IN TROUBLE. THIS IS NO LIE.. AND IM NOT SAYING THIS JUST BECAUSE I LIKE ONE CANDIDATE OVER THE OTHER. IT WAS ACTUALLY SHOWN TO ME IN MY DREAM.

HAS ANY OF YOU HAD SIMILAR EXPERIENCES LIKE THIS IN THEIR DREAMS?

Posted by: Jim | September 18, 2008 12:38 PM

I am so sick of the media ONLY focusing on Palin. Her account was hacked and the people behind it should have to pay. The investigation against her is so stupid. As far as Bush....can not blame him for what has happened to the economy. People need to stop being so greedy and STOP spending when they don't have the money. Congress has not helped. Oh...majority of them are DEMOCRATS!
GO MCCAIN/PALIN! We need God back in our country!!!

If she's using a private email account to conduct government business she's doing something unethical and illegal. So she's got no right to complain about anyone hacking into it.

Posted by: Anonymous | September 18, 2008 10:21 AM

The comments posted by several posters HERE are extremely disturbing. The fact that the majority of dumb Americans regard the world and politics with such wide black and white brush strokes is utterly reprehensible. Palin = Good, Obama = Evil; Obama = Good, Palin = Evil. Earth to Americans: this campaign and the players involved are not comic book super heroes or villains; they're politicians.

Vote for the candidate YOU want. Leave the pontificating to your preachers and the political game playing to the pros. Pay attention to the FACTS, not the BS email forwards sent to you from your Uncle Joe.

Sidenote: Palin continues to show how irresponsible she truly is. What governor, CEO, or ANY human with a brain uses yahoo to conduct serious business?? If she was using this account to conduct state business, I don't see how they could be considered "personal".

I don't think she's a horrible person and can certainly admit that she has inspired quite a few people to get involved and actually VOTE....then again, so has Obama.

The bottom line is determining which candidate inspires YOU and echoes YOUR beliefs: Obama or McCain. There's no way in Hell I'll ever support a candidate who voted for the Iraq War.

All this reminds me of 2005, when a certain Miss Paris Hilton suffered a very similar fate.

Paris made the mistake of making the name of her pet chihuahua (Tinkerbell) the secret question/answer to reset her Sidekick's password. Uh-oh. The hackers who broke in didn't think twice of publishing her emails, private photographs and telephone numbers for her friends (which included celebrities like Christina Aguilera).


So Sarah Palin isn't the first famous person to have her email hacked. However, it's important to recognise that regardless of your political leanings - Sarah Palin has been the victim of a crime. No-one deserves to have their email account broken into illegally.

I've made a video comparing Sarah Palin's plight with Paris Hilton's experiences. You can view it at http://www.sophos.com/blogs/gc/g/2008/09/18/paris-hilton-sarah-palin-video/ or embed it on your own site if you like.

I have a feeling Mr. Will didn't include the first six years of the Bush administration in his figures. Remember that great freshman college textbook by Huff, "How to Lie With Statistics". It should be required reading for every registered voter.

Posted by: DikesforPalin | September 18, 2008 9:36 AM

George Will on yet another reason to vote McCain/Palin-

"Divided government compels compromises that curb each party's excesses, especially both parties' proclivities for excessive spending when unconstrained by an institution controlled by the other party. William Niskanen, chairman of the libertarian Cato Institute, notes that in the last 50 years, "government spending has increased an average of only 1.73 percent annually during periods of divided government. This number more than triples, to 5.26 percent, for periods of unified government."

By picking Palin, McCain got the country's attention. That is a perishable thing and before it dissipates, he should show the country his veto pen."

Posted by: Scott | September 18, 2008 9:30 AM

They only released the "tame" emails probably because it was an inside job to be able to claim the emails are "tainted" and can no longer be used as a reliable source of information in the Troopergate investigation. Strange how this happened within days of the McCain campaign sending this NYC former prosecutor to "handle" the investigation for Palin and delay the investigation until AFTER the election. Looks like a cover up, smells like a cover up, gee, maybe it IS a cover up!

Most Democrats can't stand that Palin isn't shaken by their attempts to trash her. It's funny as hell.
The woman is strong. I don't care how inexperienced she is...she'll have her cabinet and advisors. Look at Ronald Reagan. He came into the White House with Balls and a heart...and look what he got accomplished.
The democrates also don't like the fact that Christians have a way to dispose of their guilt. Most would rather hang on to their baggage and drag it through life, being angry at everyone that appears to be happy. Misery loves company.

That will just piss the democrats off even more. Obama is the most Anti American person that has ever ran for president.
The old and worn out Dems are so angry over the way they have screwed their own lives up, given the chance they would destroy their own Country before going to the grave. Sorry Dems, we won't let you do that. You'll have to ride out what's left of your meaningless lives. I personally hope you are tortured with another 4/8 years of Republican policies. Hopefully that will be long enough to get the majority of the remaining Hippies in the trash can.

Palin’s refusal to cooperate with the inquiries about her e-mails or ‘Troupergate’ show Palin is NOT at all FIT to be VP!

America!: She is running for the ‘number two President’ position!

Yes, Americans should know all about her; and, McCain, the claimed, so-called reformer, should DEMAND HER FULL and COMPLETE COOPERATION and FULL DISCLOSURE, and NOW before we vote; ...remember were talking the USA’s next in line to be President, VP position!


Oh and yea, she should not have been hacked; like she should have used a secure State e-mail account, so she could not be so easily hacked, but who’s fault is that ...Palins!; ...and you can write that in lipstick!

Like Bush, McCain has proven himself ...that he and his campaign will say anything for votes!


It’s clear that John McCain would rather lose his integrity than lose an election!

This invasion of Sarah Palin's privacy and Internet crime is absolutely appalling. A new low in Presidential politics. Perhaps a new Watergate ... with Obama playing Nixon.

I can't see how Democrats can cheer for this. For all of us who still respect privacy laws, we can only hope that the perpetrators will go to jail for a very long time. And it looks like they will.

Rep. Les Gara, Anchorage, Alaska

Since Monday the McCain camp has stepped up its personal attacks against Alaskans. They've continued their D.C.-style tactics against neighbors in this small state. The game plan is to find an excuse to stop our Legislature's Troopergate investigation, and hide evidence McCain's folks really don't want to surface before November's election. It's been a little Karl Rove, and parts Laurel and Hardy. How else can you explain the following?

Friday the Attorney General's office promised state witnesses would comply with subpoenas the Legislature issued last week. Tuesday the Governor's Attorney General flip flopped, and announced that state witnesses wouldn't comply because, well, and I'm paraphrasing here - - he's changed his mind. And in what has to be an idea hatched after a 4th Martini at Chilkoot Charlies, Governor Palin's attorneys have filed a motion to dismiss the ethics claim she filed against herself two weeks ago. Yup. She really filed a complaint against herself. Tuesday she said she's discovered, after a thorough investigation of herself, that she's done nothing wrong. Does anyone know how to get a hold of Jon Stewart and Tina Fey?

It's silly season up here in the far north, but this week's moves are aimed at one thing: John McCain's effort to find cover for being disingenuous. See, before Governor Palin's nomination for the Republican VP spot, she did the honest thing. She admitted the evidence -- of roughly 20 contacts between her staff and husband with Public Safety officials, seeking the firing of Governor Palin's former brother-in-law -- might lead a reasonable person to the conclusion that the she misused her office to fire a state employee. So when Alaska's Republican-led Legislature called for an investigation, she did the honorable thing and said she and her staff would comply. She denies any wrongdoing.

Things changed on August 29 when Governor Palin was added to the McCain ticket. Since then his handlers have told her she can't testify. They don't want the evidence in this case to come out. They don't want her to testify under oath. They don't want other witnesses to testify under oath. So they have engaged in daily maneuvers to attack, as disloyal to the McCain campaign, anyone who wants the investigation to move forward. They've now attacked two well respected prosecutors, and perhaps the state's most highly regarded law enforcement official -- the Public Safety Commissioner she hired, and then fired, Walt Monegan.

Every day this week McCain operatives have sung the same tune. Today a guy with an East Coast accent, who knows nothing about Alaska, stood in front of a McCain-Palin banner to lead the attacks against people he doesn't know. At press conferences on Monday and Tuesday campaign staffer Megan Stapleton spit vitriol to repeat her argument that this investigation is really a "Democratic" attack on Governor Palin. See, that's easier than just saying their VP has reneged on her promise to testify. It's easier than just saying they don't want anyone testifying before the November election. It's easier than admitting they are stonewalling a legislative investigation. Oh -- and I know they hate partisan stuff. Yesterday 5 Republican legislators -- all allies of Governor Palin, all supporters of the McCain campaign, filed a lawsuit against the Legislature to stop the investigation.

Here are a few things MCCain's operatives failed to say. There are a few small facts that make it hard to style this as a Democratic investigation. One is that Alaska is a Republican State. We have a Republican Governor and a Legislature of 34 Republicans and 26 Democrats. This summer the Legislature's Legislative Council voted 12-0 (8 Republicans and 4 Democrats) to hire an investigator, and appointed Democratic Senator Hollis French, a well-respected former prosecutor, to find an investigator.

Governor Palin stated she and her employees would comply with the investigation. French then hired Steve Branchflower, a former DA who most recently was hired by legislative Republicans to run the state's Office of Victims rights. And on Friday the Senate Judiciary Committee voted 3-2 (2 Democrats and 1 Republican in favor); and the House Judiciary Committee issued a 7 - 0 (5 Republicans, 2 Democrats) advisory vote, to issue subpoenas to witnesses the McCain camp had previously stopped from testifying.

Over the last two days McCain's outside operatives have vilified former prosecutor Hollis French -- as an Obama supporter who must have called this investigation to hurt the McCain ticket. But French was appointed to oversee the investigation by a 12 - 0 Legislative Council vote, and is probably the state's most respected legislator -- by Republicans and Democrats alike. He's so popular the Republican Party couldn't find anyone to run against him this year. They've called former Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan -- a Native Alaskan who has served Republican and Democratic Administrations with honor, and put his life on the line in uniform- - "insubordinate." Odd, given that when Governor Palin fired him she offered him a different job. I guess being "insubordinate" was a job requirement for the new position. And they've challenged the independence of an investigator and former DA, who has no animus anyone can find.

Those Swift boat ads taught the McCain folks that if you say something untrue enough times, it can stick. My favorite moment of the week came when Governor Palin's attorneys filed a motion to dismiss Palin's ethics complaint against herself. Stay with me. Her attorneys have been buying the peyote, not me. See, on August 29 they needed to find a way to stop the Legislature's investigation. They tried asking the Republican leaders to call it off, and take one for the team. But the Senate President and others honorably said no. So they came up with an argument that the State Personnel Board -- 3 people appointed by Governor Palin and her Republican predecessor Frank Murkowski - had "exclusive jurisdiction" to investigate wrongdoing by the Governor.

The Legislature wasn't amused. So Governor Palin then filed a complaint against herself. That, they said, put "jurisdiction" in the hands of their friends at the Personnel Board. They argued that since the Personnel Board was now proceeding with an "investigation," the Legislature couldn't. To put icing on the cake, on Monday the Governor's attorneys moved to dismiss the Governor's case against herself. They said, and I loosely paraphrase again -- that they tried really hard and just couldn't find any evidence that the Governor did anything wrong. OK. I can't believe I just wrote that. And I wish it weren't true.

These are the things you have to do when your presidential candidate doesn't want his VP to honor a promise, and doesn't want evidence to come out before an election. These are the things you have to do if your folks aren't going to comply with a subpoena. That's because without spin the headline might read: "McCain Interferes With Investigation Palin Agreed To." How easy it is to re-write a headline. They learned that during the Swift boat campaign too.

All we can hope for is that members of the press will abide by what's taught in journalism school. Not to repeat the spin of political operatives without reporting the truth. Not to write "he said she said" stories, and pretend the truth is somewhere in the middle. But to report the facts. No matter how you spin it, Governor Palin promised to comply with this Legislative Investigation. McCain's folks got her to change her position. And the Legislature that voted for the investigation did so on a bi-partisan basis. End of story. End of headline.

Over the next few days McCain's folks will try to get local legislators to step in line, out of party loyalty, and reverse their vote to investigate Troopergate. But many local Republicans, like Senate President Lyda Green, have so far refused to play those politics. Stay for more from McCain's Campaign for "Change." They've tried to change the truth. They've succeeded at changing Governor Palin's promise to comply with this investigation. Let's see what they'll change next.

Thanks! I hope those in the 'lower 48' read this. Wasilla only had about 5,000 residents when Palin was mayor, and Alaska only has about 650,000 residents now.

What happens if we look in that direction with clear vision? Pole shift becomes paradigm shift, and with that said, perhaps you don't need all the afterlife stuff to see the kinds of agendas which we're being presented with.

Rep. Les Gara, Anchorage, Alaska

Since Monday the McCain camp has stepped up its personal attacks against Alaskans. They've continued their D.C.-style tactics against neighbors in this small state. The game plan is to find an excuse to stop our Legislature's Troopergate investigation, and hide evidence McCain's folks really don't want to surface before November's election. It's been a little Karl Rove, and parts Laurel and Hardy. How else can you explain the following?

Friday the Attorney General's office promised state witnesses would comply with subpoenas the Legislature issued last week. Tuesday the Governor's Attorney General flip flopped, and announced that state witnesses wouldn't comply because, well, and I'm paraphrasing here - - he's changed his mind. And in what has to be an idea hatched after a 4th Martini at Chilkoot Charlies, Governor Palin's attorneys have filed a motion to dismiss the ethics claim she filed against herself two weeks ago. Yup. She really filed a complaint against herself. Tuesday she said she's discovered, after a thorough investigation of herself, that she's done nothing wrong. Does anyone know how to get a hold of Jon Stewart and Tina Fey?

It's silly season up here in the far north, but this week's moves are aimed at one thing: John McCain's effort to find cover for being disingenuous. See, before Governor Palin's nomination for the Republican VP spot, she did the honest thing. She admitted the evidence -- of roughly 20 contacts between her staff and husband with Public Safety officials, seeking the firing of Governor Palin's former brother-in-law -- might lead a reasonable person to the conclusion that the she misused her office to fire a state employee. So when Alaska's Republican-led Legislature called for an investigation, she did the honorable thing and said she and her staff would comply. She denies any wrongdoing.

Things changed on August 29 when Governor Palin was added to the McCain ticket. Since then his handlers have told her she can't testify. They don't want the evidence in this case to come out. They don't want her to testify under oath. They don't want other witnesses to testify under oath. So they have engaged in daily maneuvers to attack, as disloyal to the McCain campaign, anyone who wants the investigation to move forward. They've now attacked two well respected prosecutors, and perhaps the state's most highly regarded law enforcement official -- the Public Safety Commissioner she hired, and then fired, Walt Monegan.

You dumb ass liberals. The reason the markets are crashing is not because of the Republicans, it was the Democrats that did this. I have been in the mortgage industry for 20 years. And I saw this coming 5 years ago. Why? because some bleeding heart democrats, like Barney Frank, thought it was necessary to lend to first time home buyers with no credit or income. Yes, they pushed FNMA, not the republicans. Bush actually tried to stop them and the democrats did not support STRON REGULATION. Imagine that, democrats not wanting to regulate. Of course not. They wer lining their pockets with contributions from FNMA/FHLMC. But since it was for a good cause, that's okay. STUPID DUMB ASS LIBERALS. FNMA/FHLMC were giving out loans to anyone. Go ahead, give evrything away without having to work for it. Poor little imigrants, minorities, the government of the US is here to take care of all of you. I hope OBAMA wins. I've had it. Let the liberals take over and give everything away. Let's all go to hell in a hand basket! Bye teh way, some of you are making an issue of hackers breaking into Sarah's computer...they hack into the government computers all the time. China has been hacking and stealing secrets from the FBI, CIA, for years. Her using the government email wouldn't have stopped a hacker. IDIOTS.

The Right wants you to believe that the American Dream still exists. If it still exists then you'll blame other people for being poor and you’ll blame yourself. You'll identify with the rich because the American Dream says that one day you might be one of them. This keeps you from demanding a living wage, union representation or any resource that would be paid for with public money. This works out well for the rich Right. Many of you have become complicit in your own exploitation just like many of you would say Muslim women have become complicit in their own exploitation.

Posted by: Hilary Smith | September 17, 2008 11:41 PM

Now, don't get cocky. On the Left, you have plenty of your own nutjobs. A certain William Ayers comes to mind.

Whom did HE kill?

you being able to kick ass doesn't mean that someone couldn't kick yours

Duh. Let me tell you something about kicking ass: it isn't about about strength, it is about focus. I have been in few fights in my life, they all ended the same way. I have put people in the hospital each time. I am not huge, I am not a brute, I have great focus. I also abhor violence. Thus, all my physical conflicts have been made as short as possible.

1. Islamic extremism? Yes or no. You worried? It's already in the US.

So is christian extremism, why just limit that to Islam? All religion is extreme, because it asks you to believe in something that has no proof. There will always be extremism when people 'believe'. People who can be made to 'believe' can be made pawns.


2. Economic meltdown? We probably agree. The solution is not regulation or deregulation - the solution is accountability and transparency - always has been.

And how are people held accountable without oversight? Sorry, but greed is a major factor here. CEO's like Andrew Mozillo should be stripped of their bonuses for their gross mismanagement, as well as facing possible ethics charges for unfair business practices. Do you really believe a fellow rich guy like John McCain will punish people like this? Will corporate boards punish them? There is no accountability with oversight. That is part of the human condition, that the absolute power of capitalism corrupts everyone at a certain level.

3. Foreign aid? I'm against it.

Foreign Aid has been a cornerstone of policy for a long time. Our foreign aid now mostly goes to fight wars for oil. It used to go towards rebuilding things, which is why people everywhere loved the US. Too bad they don't love us anymore. I guess after years of propping up dictators like Saddam Hussein, who could blame them for hating us?

4. War? It depends. It's a long discussion. What about you?

War in Iraq, hell, most thinking people knew beforehand that Iraq was a mistake. Of course, it wasn't a mistake for Dick Cheney, who has used his position to funnel billions of dollars away from the war efforts and into his own private stash. No, I can't prove that, but let's face reality: if it looks like a pig, and it smells like a pig, it's probably a pig, and Dick Cheney is definitely a pig.

And you support John McCain, who wants to wage war for oil? And Sarah Palin?!?!? She's a nut. She's already WAY over her head when she has to talk on her own about anything. Look forward to more oil wars with these two. What we need to do is to make alternative energy a reality. It's pretty easy to see that is where the next big boost is going to be, and all smart capitalists are gearing up ideas in that area.

Alan Chernoff's CNN Report on Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac Buying Influence in Washington DC- Guess who DID take their money in a BIG way (yep B. Obama):


"Freddie Mac (FRE, Fortune 500) spent over $94.8-million on lobbyists since 1998, making it the nation's 12th-largest lobbying client, while Fannie Mae (FNM, Fortune 500) bought $79.5-million of influence, the 20th biggest spender, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

"They wanted to fend off regulation of their enterprises," said Massie Ritsch of the Center.

Until recent months, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac largely succeeded in that effort - functioning with relatively little oversight as they aggressively grew their portfolio of mortgages to try to increase earnings.

Campaign contributions bought influence as well, including donations to the presidential candidates.

Sen. Barack Obama is the No. 3 recipient of Fannie and Freddie campaign dollars, having collected $123,000 from the companies since he first ran for the Senate in 2004, according to the Federal Election Commission and the Center for Responsive Politics.

The former chief executive of Fannie Mae, James Johnson, was the original head of Obama's vice presidential search team. Johnson resigned from Obama's campaign amid controversy over discounted home loans he had received.

Sen. John McCain has received $19,000 from the two companies in the past ten years."
________

That's $40,000 a year for Obama and $1900 a year for McCain- Wow, Obama what do you owe them in return?

Hey, Mister What, don't forget about rape kits? As mayor, Palin made rape victims in Wasilla pay for their own rape kits. The burg must have needed the money for her boy's hockey arena that put the town $20 mill in the red.

But at least she's consistent, if a 12 year old is raped by her father, Palin won't let her baby be aborted even if it means the girl would die. Now there's change that will make you vomit.

Oh yeah, I remember that. Didn't know his name. One thing to keep in mind... when a person with this sort of mentality goes wacko, we here on the Right do not endorse his actions, not even privately. It's the same as the abortion-center bomber... disowned.

Now, don't get cocky. On the Left, you have plenty of your own nutjobs. A certain William Ayers comes to mind.

We can go round and round. Who's worse? Left has Stalin and Mao, for starters. Right-wing... well, I'll leave that for you to fill in the blanks.

The point being - you being able to kick ass doesn't mean that someone couldn't kick yours. But that doesn't solve the problem, does it? We have a world full of trouble. Where do we agree?

1. Islamic extremism? Yes or no. You worried? It's already in the US.

2. Economic meltdown? We probably agree. The solution is not regulation or deregulation - the solution is accountability and transparency - always has been.

3. Foreign aid? I'm against it.

Vote for Obama and you will have DESTROYED Hilary's chance at becoming President!!

Consider this:
If you elect Obama for 2008 , Hillary CAN'T RUN IN 2012!! The incumbent always runs for their party in reelection.

Hillary will then be 69 when she gets a chance to run as democrat. Then people will call her old(like they do McCain who is 72) and she will NEVER become President.

Reagan was 69 when he got elected but he wasn't trying to break the glass ceiling at the same time.

So if you care at all about Hillary, you will VOTE AGAINST Obama this time around. Plus, you will break the glass ceiling and Hillary WILL BE THERE in 2012!!

Think about it!! It makes sense!!

If you support Hillary, YOU MUST VOTE AGAINST OBAMA!!!

"Fascism is a totalitarian nationalist political ideology and mass movement that is concerned with notions of cultural decline or decadence, and which seeks to achieve a millenarian national rebirth by exalting the nation or race, as well as promoting cults of unity, strength and purity.

Various scholars attribute different characteristics to fascism, but the following elements are usually seen as its integral parts: nationalism, militarism, totalitarianism, dictatorship, class collaboration, populism, collectivism, statism, social interventionism, and economic planning. Fascism opposes communism, democracy, liberalism, and conservatism (taking into account that fascists made alliances with conservatives more often than other groups).

Though nationalist in nature, fascist movements have sought alliances with each other in different countries on common beliefs, such as opposition to communism."

Fight Fascism, vote Obama.

Hacking and publishing Gov. Palin's Yahoo account was a bad move by who ever did it. If they had any real damning emails they should have released them up front because after today they will be of no value. People that support Obama will believe them and blog about how bad they are; McCain supporters will be outraged, and undiceded voters will not trust them. Anything they do release will be denied and frankly cannot be proven. If you can hack the account, you can change the email message. My guess is in the comming days other emails will be released that will cast Palin in a bad light and the McCain camp and conservative media will say the messages have been doctored and the American people will believe them because in the end, the emails were stolen and who can trust a thief? Finally, if they do get caught, they will go to jail. The risk in this case was much greater than the reward.

Economy Fundamentally Sound:

What did McCain mean? He meant that Capitalism is good.

What did Obama mean when he scoffed? He meant that we should now give up on Capitalism and move to Socialism.

Why did McCain mean the workers were the foundation? They are. No labor, no production. That's simple, even for Marxists to understand.

Why would Obama the Socialist scoff that the workers were the fundamentals of the economy? Weird.

Posted by: TommyF | September 17, 2008 11:01 PM

all you liberals are miserable people who think that the world revolves around you. You think people can't help themselves if left to their own. you think everything in the world needs a government program to fix it or make it better. You have no faith because you do not believe in a God. you have no religion. Or you don't really believe it deep down. YOu might say you do but you don't.
Liberals only have faith in the works of man. That is why nothing they try works.
Liberals believe that the government is what holds the fabric of life together. They do not understand that it is their failed and backward programs that are unravelling the fabric of society.
Liberals will never admit that it was president Johnson and his great society welfare state that removed black children from the homes of their grandparents while their parents were at work, made the black woman divorce the black man so she could get more money from the government for the more black children she has in the house without a father.
more children under the roof + no father + no job = more money from welfare.
How is that incentive to do better?
now we have a black culture that has all but completely disentegrated, the media and the television has polluted what is left of their culture so that all standards of success and even decency among humans is lost.

Why is it all rap music either sings about sex, drugs, or killing someone?
It's because the media wants to keep the black culture down.
Just like liberal democrats. They need the victims! Without victims they would have no one to get them elected. Liberals need a cause to get people to cry over so they can ask for more taxpayer money to pay for their plans. Which will fail, but what does that matter when they are not accountable?
DEMOCRATS PROMOTED SLAVERY
DEMOCRATS WROTE JIM CROW LAWS
DEMOCRATS CREATED SEPARATE BUT EQUAL
DEMOCRATS HAVE THE BIG LIE

CARTER STARTED TERRORISM

GOVERNMENT RUN BUSINESS IS FACISM

LIBERALS WANT PURE COMMUNISM/SOCIALISM

LIBERALISM IS A STATE OF CONFUSION FOR PEOPLE WHO CANNOT REASON OUTSIDE THEIR OWN MINDS.

You can deny what I say, but it doesn't change that you are a liberal and you are wrong. Nothing you want will work. No person you elect will fix your problems.

Why do you think so many people were arrested for smoking pot outside the DNC convention? Why do you think there was a huge movement to get pot legalized and leniency allowed for people arrested? Cause they were smokin up at the DNC duh! They want to get high and see the messiah!!!

Liberals all just want to feel good. they don't care about substance. they don't care about what really happens. They just want to see the effort made. they just want the sound byte.

Why do you think that when you try to explain why a liberal plan fails a liberal will always revert to personal attacks? All they have is a feeling. All they have is hate. All they want to do is spoil the ride for everyone.

Liberal politicians all want to lead their blind stupid flock right over the nearest cliff so the senators and representatives can have free coffee, get the best health care, retirement plan that is insulated from the problems of the economy. They are treated like royalty when they have no idea what it takes to make a real living as a farmer, or a shopkeeper, or a doctor, or any real profession that requires a non-liberal mentality to get the job done.

Liberals need to leave the planet

REPUBLICANS HAVE A PLAN TO KILL ANY REMAINING HUMANS IN THE AFTERLIFE OR POLESHIFT

SO FOR YOUR OWN SAKE DON'T VOTE FOR A REPUBLICAN THIS NOVEMBER BECAUSE POLE SHIFT IS POSSIBLE DURING THE NEXT PRESIDENTS TENURE. AND HAVE YOU GUYS WONDER WHY REPUBLICANS BUSH AND NOW MCCAIN WANTING TO CONTINUE
AND EXPAND THE SPYING PROGRAM? TO SAVE US FROM TERRORISTS?
I DIDN'T THINK SO BUT TO TAKE CONTROL IN THE AFTERLIFE AND LOOK TO REMOVE ANYONE THREATENING THEM WHICH INCLUDES THE U.S. CITIZENS.

REPUBLICANS BELIEVE THAT U.S. CITIZENS ARE THE TERRORISTS AND THAT THE TERRORISTS THE MAJORITY OF U.S. CITIZENS BELIEVE IN ARE ACTUALLY BENEFITING THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, THUS REPUBLICANS ARE A FRIEND TO TERRORISTS WHICH MEANS ONLY ONE THING. YOU ARE CONSIDERED A TERRORIST TO THEM BECAUSE THEY SAY YOU WOULD INTERFERE WITH THEM AFTER THE POLESHIFT REGARDLESS OF WHETHER YOU ARE A REPUBLICAN OR A DEMOCRAT MATTERS NOT. WHICH IS WHY THEY ARE CONTINUTING TO EXPAND THE SPYING PROGRAM TO MAKE SURE THEY KEEP AN EYE ON ANY POTENTIAL THREATS ON U.S. SOIL WHICH INCLUDES THE U.S. CITIZENS. I'LL BET YOU ANYTHING THAT A REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED WHITE HOUSE OR CONGRESS DURING AND AFTER THE POLESHIFT ASSURES YOUR DEATH AND THESE COWARDS GOING TO THEIR BUNKERS WHILE ALL OF YOU SUFFER FROM STARVATION OR FROM DEHYDRATION. OBAMA DOESN'T EVEN KNOW THE COMING POLE SHIFT, HE JUST HEARD RUMORS AND I'M SURE THAT HE HAS NO PLANS TO BETTER HIMSELF AFTER THE POLE SHIFT BUT TO ONLY AID AND ASSIST THOSE IN NEED.

MCCAIN KNOWS OF THE COMING POLE SHIFT AND THIS MEANS TROUBLE. ITS FUNNY HOW SOME PEOPLE ARE VOTING FOR MCCAIN THIS NOVEMBER BUT THEN THEY INTEND YOUR DEATH AFTER THE POLE SHIFT FOR THOSE REMAINING THAT STILL SURVIVED.
I HAVE A FAMILY WITH 5 KIDS AND I FEEL LIKE I WILL BE IN DANGER EVEN IF I SURVIVE THE POLE SHIFT BECAUSE OF THE REPUBLICANS AND THEIR SPYING PROGRAM.

I ACTUALLY HAD A DREAM ABOUT THIS EXACT EVENT LAST NIGHT POTENTIALLY HAPPENING. THIS IS NO ACCIDENT AND IT FELT SO REAL. I WAS ALSO SHOWN JOHN MCCAIN AND PALIN TOGETHER TALKING ABOUT HOW TO CONTROL THE HUMAN POPULATION AND HOW TO WEED THEM OUT THROUGH VARIOUS DISEASES. FOR MY FAMILY AND YOUR FAMILY'S SAKE DON'T VOTE FOR THESE TWO FACE
IDIOTS. OBAMA IN MY DREAM WAS SHOWN AS A COMPASSIONATE MAN WHO LOOKED TO AID THOSE IN TROUBLE. THIS IS NO LIE.. AND IM NOT SAYING THIS JUST BECAUSE I LIKE ONE CANDIDATE OVER THE OTHER. IT WAS ACTUALLY SHOWN TO ME IN MY DREAM.

Hey, Waterfront, are you at all concerned that Palin's attorney general has told his state that legally served subpoenas in the troopergate investigation will not be obeyed.

Maybe next time you get a traffic ticket, you can just tell the cop, "No, no thanks. I'm busy now and don't think I'm interested in following this law."

Posted by: Axel | September 17, 2008 10:55 PM

Could it be possible that Palin got her email account hacked to delete some emails (evidence) considering that the investigation into her conduct is gaining momemtum? Some people might be curious as to why she need to get her account hacked if she can log in herself and delete them. Now that would be destroying evidence by the accused under investigation considering the fact that there are some people who already received emails from her yahoo account and there is no way for her to have them destroyed. If investogators find out that she uses yahoo for business purpose, they can be look into as evidence.

Now it's convient how that all of a sudden it's Sarah Palin's poor understanding how hacker care out there, who just happen to make it their job to hack HER emails. My My My Obama you are such a "PRETENDER," not so unlike the many "PRETENDERS" that follow you....their called HOLLYWOOD. The GREAT PRETENDERS HEAVEN! Hummmm if he walks like a duck, quacks like a duck by golly he's a duck. You walk with the "PRETENDERS," you talk like the "PRETENDERS" by golly you are a PRETENDER. YOu should get a HOLLYWOOD STAR on Hollywood BLVD. You are such a cammileion Obama. By the way, tell your hackers to back off. Speaking about "PRETENDERS" such as yourself, your two biggest "PRETENDERS" had this to say about you.....
Mr.Biden said about you "Obama would be a President in training"
Hummmm NOW HE SAYS YOUR REDY TO BE PRESIDENT????? Did you take PRESIDENCY CLASSES from Mr. Bill Clinton. The man that embarrassed this country with his "SEXGATE," when not even some heads of state would bring their wives to functions at the Whitehouse because of HIM. Is that who you took your classes from to make you President material???? America doesn't need you Mr.Obama NOR your "PRETENDER" for Vice President.

Hillary Clinton said you could not answer the phone at 3AM and make executive decisions.

AGAIN I SAY THIS:

I now believe that there are rabid liberals who view Republicans/Conservatives as less-than-human.

I believe these rabid liberals behave like Nazis. They blame everything on Kaiser Bush (and now John McCain). The war (WW1 and Prussia). The economy (Germany 1932). Remember "blame the Jews?" The "Jews" in this case are the Republicans/Conservatives.

These rabid liberals shout you down as they extol free speech. They control the media. They invade privacy. Everything is a "dirty trick" (of the Jews/Republicans).

Janine Garofalo, rabid liberal, said that Republicans should be rounded up and jailed.

Barack Obama, rabid liberal, sits in his elevated seat blaming the "dirty Republicans" for everything. To him, John McCain never co-sponsored legislation in 2005 to keep the Fannie/Freddie crisis from happening. McCain did. They try to rewrite history.

I now believe that we are entering a fascist period. We are seeing the crisis in economy played for all it's worth. The panic-stricken will run to the shiny object (95% of you will receive money from Barack Obama, and a toaster, according to Joe Biden).

Soon, the rabid liberals will outlaw God (though Obama wants to be God's instrument).

Luckily, in America, we have a Second Amendment. We will use it if it comes to it. This is why the rabid liberals want guns outlawed, so you cannot defend yourself.

This is not the Great Depression. Do not panic. Do not give up on America.

She is an elected official, does she not report to the people? if so why is it a problem that a government email is being released to the public, which elected said government. Secrecy and lies is not the basis for democracy. Palin should not be worried that her emails were read, because if she were honest and acting in the best interest of the people, then this would be a non-issue.

Posted by: Ben, 20 yrs old and worried | September 17, 2008 10:47 PM

The mass hysteria of the Dems over Sarah Palin is something to behold. We all know there are looney libs, just as there are right wing nut jobs. But I've got to tell you, Dems, you are outdoing yourselves.

The classless, nasty, vindictive lengths the Dems have gone to is incredible. A federal crime has been committed against a VP nominee; and instead of an actual news article about it, the WaPo handles it in a blog?

The WaPo has no shame.

Wow! Wow! Wow! I have always considered myself a conservative. But I'm speechless now. Forget the fact that Sarah Palin is less versed on internet security than my 9-year old son. No, I'm talking about the people here who are discussing Michelle Obama and referring to Barack as Osama. Last time I checked, Michelle wasn't running for President or Vice President and both Barack and Michelle are Ivy League Grads. I'm a fiscal conservative and typically vote that way but I respect a good education and cannot tolerate the low-brow tone that has being taken in the name of "Republicans." It's unbelievable and frightening.

I will happily re-register as an Independent tomorrow and there is not a chance in hell, I will vote for McCain/Palin. I also agree with those who have pointed out (to all the extremists) that if you have posted here, you are now on record, IP address logged. Your identity is known. Anytime you go online, your identity is available and you can be tracked. I would be amused by it all if I was not so disgusted and disappointed. This is not the Republican party.

Posted by: Anonymous | September 17, 2008 10:42 PM

No, it's not Palin's fault for being hacked but it is her fault (a big one) trusting government business to her off-site e-mail account. Everyone knows to beware of hackers and she chose to bypass the protections of her state's IT dept. Bad judgment. I often remind my wife that, at the very least, Yahoo can read her e-mails whenever they want.

The BIG issue here is Palin's intention to hide from public scrutiny. We The People get burned by deceitful politicians so we make gov't e-mail subject to inspection. My boss, who is a gov't employee and a fellow Democrat, has a similar way of hiding e-mail. Their intention is to do things out of the public eye because the public wouldn't (or didn't) approve.

I've been disgusted with my boss' deceitful behavior for years and seeing Palin do it immediately lets me know she's dishonest.

Posted by: washpostonly | September 17, 2008 10:42 PM

Ummmm, folks. With all due respect, the people who hacked this are not likely Republicans or Democrats... heck they are usually not even mostly Americans. In my experience (which involves security and employs people who well, have "backgrounds" in this stuff), this is an amorphous coalition of Argentine, Pakistani, Russian, Mexican, Indian, Japanese, the Maldives, the Philipines, et al who do this for SPORT... I suppose the high profile of this makes it look suspicious and "maybe" some are being paid to hack away, but the more likely answer is that our friends took up the challenge on their own to dig up dirt. just like all of you are scouring the internet for trash... they just tend to kick it up a notch.

Makes for better a better conspiracy theory as I read the stuff here but there are just as many clever programmers trying to get into Angelina and Brads e-mail and the linear coliders mainframe as poked around at an easy yahoo account. (and I mean easy on a huge scale - this is a cakewalk)

Its a game guys, a felony - but only if we have a unilateral extradition treaty with the country its being done from.. this one embarassed folks but it probably has no more agenda than the simple pleasure of doing it becasue it can be done.

Everyone has known for a while that she was using personal email for work, and she knew that everyone knew. This might add diffuculty to the legal attempt to get her email records. And people who are entertained by the news will feel bad for her and anger toward her competition.

Let's admit it, all Americans that has a Yahoo account have used it for work or business away from the office. Maybe, just maybe, Gov. Palin composed those emails at home away from the office. Maybe she don't know how to use the secure email from home. Gov. Palin was fully aware however, she's got nothing to hide and the content are not top secret. When she becomes the VP, she's will learned to use secure gov. emails at home and the office.

If you would look at Obamas background, friendships, pastor and beliefs, you would see that he is not pro business or individual rights. His answer for everything is more taxes, more taxes, and more taxes. Then he wants massive government control.

Some of you are too young to remember the era of Jimmy Carter, but it was a time of high interest rates (20+%) high unemployment, and high inflation. He also almost totally destroyed our military. Obama will be just as bad, if not worse.

I now believe that there are rabid liberals who view Republicans/Conservatives as less-than-human.

I believe these rabid liberals behave like Nazis. They blame everything on Kaiser Bush (and now John McCain). The war (WW1 and Prussia). The economy (Germany 1932). Remember "blame the Jews?" The "Jews" in this case are the Republicans/Conservatives.

These rabid liberals shout you down as they extol free speech. They control the media. They invade privacy. Everything is a "dirty trick" (of the Jews/Republicans).

Janine Garofalo, rabid liberal, said that Republicans should be rounded up and jailed.

Barack Obama, rabid liberal, sits in his elevated seat blaming the "dirty Republicans" for everything. To him, John McCain never co-sponsored legislation in 2005 to keep the Fannie/Freddie crisis from happening. McCain did. They try to rewrite history.

I now believe that we are entering a fascist period. We are seeing the crisis in economy played for all it's worth. The panic-stricken will run to the shiny object (95% of you will receive money from Barack Obama, and a toaster, according to Joe Biden).

Soon, the rabid liberals will outlaw God (though Obama wants to be God's instrument).

Luckily, in America, we have a Second Amendment. We will use it if it comes to it. This is why the rabid liberals want guns outlawed, so you cannot defend yourself.

This is not the Great Depression. Do not panic. Do not give up on America.

Shawn (Democrat) from GA said; The people who did this deserve a Congressional Medal of Honor. For pointing out how completely vulnerable we'd be under a McCain/Palin administration.

Yes...of course not so vulnerable to the point that you could have civilian enter the white house and give the president a BJ...does the name Monica ring a bell?

Now, THIS is interesting: Sen. Barack Obama is not an African-American.
Why is the fact that Mr. Obama is only 6.25% African Negro not reported?
Because to acknowledge it is to report this devastating truth about him: Mr. Obama is not legally African-American. It is impossible for him to be, in truth, America’s first African-American president.
Federal law requires that to claim a minority status, you must be at least 1/8 of the descriptor, but for the sake of this article, I’ve converted it to a decimal fraction for easier comprehension. You must be at least 12.5% of the racial component you claim for minority status. Mr. Obama, claiming to be African-American, is half the legal threshold.
Again, to let it sink in: Mr. Obama is not legally African-American. It is impossible for him to be, in truth, America’s first African-American president.
Mr. Obama is 50% Caucasian, that from his mother. What those who want Mr. Obama to write history by becoming “America’s first African-American president” ignore is that his father was ethnically Arabic, with only 1 relative ethnically African Negro — a maternal great-grandparent (Sen. Obama’s great-great grandparent, thus the 6.25% ethnic contribution to the senator’s ethnic composition).
This means that the media, which has trumpeted his historic candidacy while chiding the campaigns of Clinton and McCain for “playing the race card”, has categorized and judged Barack Obama not on the facts of his life, but solely on the color of his skin.
The irony is delicious, and will more than likely be lost on 98% of the American public.
More on Obama’s heritage:
Here is the truth about Mr. Obama’s name, and his father’s ancestors:
True Negro tribal members of western Kenya where his father was born have Christian names, not Arabic. His father’s decision to name him with an Arabic name is a matter of his father establishing his ethnic identity in Africa - it is done deliberately to separate him from the African tribes. He may live among them, but he is not one of them. His father’s message is that he is Arabic, not Negro.
Many will find these truths unsettling. I’m often asked, “But I thought his father was Kenyan. How could Mr. Obama not be African-American, how could his ethnic composition be so Arabic?”
The definitive clue to that answer is to look at his name, his father’s name, and the names of all his ancestors on his father’s side. They are all Arabic.
Researching his roots reveal that on his father’s side, he is descended from Arab slave traders. They operated under an extended grant from Queen Victoria, who gave them the right to continue the slave trade in exchange for helping the British defeat the Madhi Army in southern Sudan and the Upper Nile region. Funny how circular is history; now the British again face the Madhi Army, albeit this time Shiite, not Sunni, as in nineteenth century Sudan.
But telling America’s black community that while their ancestors were breaking the shackles of slavery, Mr. Obama’s ancestors were placing those shackles upon their wrists would hardly play as an Oprah Winfrey best-seller.
Being the son of a poor Kenyan goat-herder plays much better than being the son of a highly placed Arab-African who operated at the top of the Kenyan government following his education at Columbia. You see, even the way he portrays his father is a lie.
The story here is not entirely about who or what Obama is, but also about how eagerly Americans, guided by the media, have swallowed the lie. Kenneth Lamb’s article, excerpted above, was published at his blog in February. Four months later, it’s made barely a ripple in the public consciousness.
His autobiography is full of “composite characters and other fictionalized elements”, which Obama himself admits in the preface to Dreams of My Father — but then he goes out and repeats those fictionalized stories on the campaign trail even after they’ve been debunked. Not exactly reassuring from a man who’s running for president.
The facts bring Obama down to the level of a typical, grubbing politician. His life story has been spun for maximum political effect right down to his roots

I hope the Democrats and Obama Campaign immediately condemn this heinous act, and that the contents of the emails are not made public. If the Dems try to make anything out of this -- using info obtained by criminals -- that would play right into the Republicans' hands.

Especially this business about how this means she can't deal with national security matters. There are plenty of ways to argue that without resorting to dirty tricks, and I'll bet anyone here $100 Gov. Palin never used her yahoo account to discuss sensitive national security matters! Make that $1000. She's rarely discussed sensitive national security matters with anyone -- don't make that a plus.

I hope the Obama campaign has the wisdom to back the Gov on this, or at least the decency to state that they'd never use info obtained this way. If they must attack her, do it fairly, otherwise they'll lose a lot of swing votes and some Hillary Dems.

I'm not a fan of Sarah Palin. I used to be a fan of John McCain. But it seems to me he's abandoned his own core values.

HOWEVER . . .

IT IS NOT OKAY THAT SARAH PALIN'S PERSONAL EMAIL WAS INFILTRATED AND PUBLISHED ON THE INTERNET. PERIOD.

I'm all about brass knuckle politics. Love the fight. Love the game. Love the debate.

I am not, however, a fan of violating basic standards of decency.

And, strange as it sounds in these times, no matter who wins the White House, I'll support my president - which doesn't mean I'll never disagree, but I'll respect the office.

My prayer is that all of us - myself included - focus on the issues this year, and work to hold ourselves to the highest conceivable standards.

I'm voting for Senator Obama, because I care about health care, and jobs for middle class Americans. I'm voting for Senator Obama, because I believe that our Constitution - including our Bill of Rights - must guide our president and our national leadership; that, indeed, not even the crises of the past few years can justify the violation of our fundamental rights. Barack Obama was a Constitutional law professor and will fulfill his oath of office to the letter AND spirit of the law.

Invading Sarah Palin's privacy seems to run quite counter to the latter, and can only serve to undermine Senator Obama's candidacy.

Seems to me that too much is at stake this year to allow ourselves to lapse into this sort of nonsense or into any more lipstick debates.

No doubt this is part of the Obama hit squad's tactics that was sent to Alaska to find any dirt it could on Sarah Palin.

"And to the idiot who said a Yahoo email account is not secure, when it says (Https://) that means it's a secure site."

Its security is only as good as the password the user chooses. And even if it's a fantastic password, if they used publicly available or easily guessed info for their password hints, anyone could reset the password to what they want. If she used her zip code or birthdate, as has been rumored, well, that's pretty dumb.

Also, it appears Yahoo mail does not penalize you for multiple failed login attempts, so a brute force dictionary attack could also be tried.

If you want to exchange 'confidential' information, you better have one hell of an IT/IS team but even they would recommend doing it in person!

None of us think it is funny. We think Sarah Palin is dumb. She may not technically be an idiot or a moron, but she is not smart. However, what IS outrageous is Sarah Palin trying to avoid oversight by using this account for Government business, not having enough intelligence to use a password that has some security. To even consider having this idiot one step away from the presidency is ludicrous, as is your critical thinking ability.

Anonymous simply means a person or person who wishes to do something without giving their name.

"Anonymous" is not a group of hackers, or a group of any sort. Any and all persons, regardless of affiliation, can perform actions under the name anonymous.

At best it can be said that there is a large number of people who gather together who prefer to remain anonymous amongst even themselves.

While it was not necessarily implied by this author that this group of persons wished to call their group "Anonymous" by way of a name, more than one publication has made this error and I, an internet user who wishes to remain anonymous, wants to make it abundantly clear that not all anonymous are "Anonymous".

They're probably also concerned that Sarah Palin in her first interview stated we may have to go to war with Russia if they attack Georgia again.

This demonstrates poor judgement on Palin's part - she clearly doesn't understand what is a fireable offense in a business office.

Copying her husband on government business emails is beyond foolish.

The selection has spoken volumes about McCain's ability to make sound decisions.

REPUBLICANS HAVE A PLAN TO KILL ANY REMAINING HUMANS IN THE AFTERLIFE OR POLESHIFT

SO FOR YOUR OWN SAKE DON'T VOTE FOR A REPUBLICAN THIS NOVEMBER BECAUSE POLE SHIFT IS POSSIBLE DURING THE NEXT PRESIDENTS TENURE. AND HAVE YOU GUYS WONDER WHY REPUBLICANS BUSH AND NOW MCCAIN WANTING TO CONTINUE
AND EXPAND THE SPYING PROGRAM? TO SAVE US FROM TERRORISTS?
I DIDN'T THINK SO BUT TO TAKE CONTROL IN THE AFTERLIFE AND LOOK TO REMOVE ANYONE THREATENING THEM WHICH INCLUDES THE U.S. CITIZENS.

REPUBLICANS BELIEVE THAT U.S. CITIZENS ARE THE TERRORISTS AND THAT THE TERRORISTS THE MAJORITY OF U.S. CITIZENS BELIEVE IN ARE ACTUALLY BENEFITING THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, THUS REPUBLICANS ARE A FRIEND TO TERRORISTS WHICH MEANS ONLY ONE THING. YOU ARE CONSIDERED A TERRORIST TO THEM BECAUSE THEY SAY YOU WOULD INTERFERE WITH THEM AFTER THE POLESHIFT REGARDLESS OF WHETHER YOU ARE A REPUBLICAN OR A DEMOCRAT MATTERS NOT. WHICH IS WHY THEY ARE CONTINUTING TO EXPAND THE SPYING PROGRAM TO MAKE SURE THEY KEEP AN EYE ON ANY POTENTIAL THREATS ON U.S. SOIL WHICH INCLUDES THE U.S. CITIZENS. I'LL BET YOU ANYTHING THAT A REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED WHITE HOUSE OR CONGRESS DURING AND AFTER THE POLESHIFT ASSURES YOUR DEATH AND THESE COWARDS GOING TO THEIR BUNKERS WHILE ALL OF YOU SUFFER FROM STARVATION OR FROM DEHYDRATION. OBAMA DOESN'T EVEN KNOW THE COMING POLE SHIFT, HE JUST HEARD RUMORS AND I'M SURE THAT HE HAS NO PLANS TO BETTER HIMSELF AFTER THE POLE SHIFT BUT TO ONLY AID AND ASSIST THOSE IN NEED.

MCCAIN KNOWS OF THE COMING POLE SHIFT AND THIS MEANS TROUBLE. ITS FUNNY HOW SOME PEOPLE ARE VOTING FOR MCCAIN THIS NOVEMBER BUT THEN THEY INTEND YOUR DEATH AFTER THE POLE SHIFT FOR THOSE REMAINING THAT STILL SURVIVED.
I HAVE A FAMILY WITH 5 KIDS AND I FEEL LIKE I WILL BE IN DANGER EVEN IF I SURVIVE THE POLE SHIFT BECAUSE OF THE REPUBLICANS AND THEIR SPYING PROGRAM.

I ACTUALLY HAD A DREAM ABOUT THIS EXACT EVENT LAST NIGHT POTENTIALLY HAPPENING. THIS IS NO ACCIDENT AND IT FELT SO REAL. I WAS ALSO SHOWN JOHN MCCAIN AND PALIN TOGETHER TALKING ABOUT HOW TO CONTROL THE HUMAN POPULATION AND HOW TO WEED THEM OUT THROUGH VARIOUS DISEASES. FOR MY FAMILY AND YOUR FAMILY'S SAKE DON'T VOTE FOR THESE TWO FACE
IDIOTS. OBAMA IN MY DREAM WAS SHOWN AS A COMPASSIONATE MAN WHO LOOKED TO AID THOSE IN TROUBLE. THIS IS NO LIE.. AND IM NOT SAYING THIS JUST BECAUSE I LIKE ONE CANDIDATE OVER THE OTHER. IT WAS ACTUALLY SHOWN TO ME IN MY DREAM.

HAS ANY OF YOU HAD SIMILAR EXPERIENCES LIKE THIS IN THEIR DREAMS?

Posted by: Jim | September 17, 2008 10:12 PM

Might I suggest to all the posters who are incensed by the low-brow, hateful, bigoted posts that are being put up that you simply ignore them. This is a tactic that is used by people who have no defense of their candidate's illegal, unethical, immoral, dishonest, deceitful, criminal behavior and would like to draw others into an irrelevant and unseemly discussion. When one has nothing to say in defense of his/her candidate, he/she simply resorts to vile, unintelligent hateful speech in order to take people's minds off the issue at hand: The fact that Sarah Palin misused personal email accounts while conducting official Alaska State business, and then ordered her subordinates to do the same ... all in an attempt to avoid investigation/prosecution for abusing her position as Governor.

As a Christian I am so offended that someone would say that Obama is my Messiah. My Messiah is Jesus Christ and for someone to allege that because I support Obama he is my Messiah is a gross insult. It is an insult to all good Christians.


Don't worry about it. They know what they're doing. You have to remember what the scriptures say....


And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that [spirit] of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

The two of us could run the country, we just need about 100 million and we could buy are way in this election.
The last two elections were third world style, and this one is going to be worst.

Just about every American can relate to having their privacy violated on the internet. Most will sympathize with her. She'll get through this...and be on her way to being the next V.P.

Hilarious how some Republican writes that this only helps Sarah. And O.J. Simpson's new trial is helping him too.

If we ignore the charges of sexism and lipstick and look at the qualifications of McBush & McPalin a logical person would then have to ask: What qualifications?

G.W. Bush was the worst, McBush/McPalin is just another bad pairing. Why isn't Cheney's wife running for V.P.?

Well said jason:

Any Hillary supporter who votes McCain is an enormous hypocrite and is actually sacrificing Hillary's candidacy in 2012 as well. No war-time incumbent president has ever been voted out of office. Ever.

If McCain is elected and we are still at war in 4 years, not only have you managed to delay progress in this country by voting McCain, but you have also prevented Hillary from winning in 2012 as well.

Additionally, look at the policies. If any Hillary supporter can say that they honestly support the McCain plans then they were not a Hillary supporter in the first place, as she supports everything he stands against and vice versa.

Think logically, not vengefully.

Could this be used in a lawsuit against her for conducting state business on a private account? Is that actually against the law?

If so, is it a felony or a misdemeanor? What kind of punishment fits that crime?

Could she feasibly win on November 3rd and be in court/jail during some point during her administration?

She'd obviously be getting a Presidential pardon, but still.

It's John McCain and his cronies up to their same old tricks....which lobbyist did you pay public donations to crash the site and stifle open access to information, John?

Tip for you, pal - getting shot down over Viet Nam and being a career politician doesn't qualify you to be President of these United States of America, sir.

Information and truth will out - secrecy in government is what we've had for the past eight years, with nothing good to come of it. Isn't it time for some transparency and openness in Washington?

Three cheers to Anonymous and to WikiLeaks, and to whomever can bring that site back online.

About 2 months ago, I bought a used car: a cherry red convertible. I gotta be honest, I didn't do much research before buying. I only test drove it once before making a commitment to buy, and it was made by an obscure manufacturer that nobody really ever hear of before. But, at first blush, I was in love with this car. It looked so pretty on the outside. Professional paint job, smooth finish, great curves, and a confident, although perhaps pretentious, feel to it. My rival in the neighborhood had just decided against buying a convertible and instead bought a reliable pickup truck. Certainly, my rival made a more practical and well thought out decision, but where was the 'splash'? I wanted the headlines in the neighborhood! I didn't admit this at the time, but the fact that my rival opted against the flashy choice made me feel as though I simply HAD to pick the convertible.
The first few weeks were like a honeymoon. Heck, you could say I was 'energized' to drive it. But suddenly, almost on a daily basis, things have been falling apart. Turns out, my convertible has an oil leak. As time passes, more and more oil drip drip drips out of the car. The engine stalls out on the highway, almost as if it has no experience with being driven over 60 mph. The interior computer malfunctions when I turn on the radio and the AC at the same time... perhaps multitasking so many responsibilities at once overwhelms the motherboard. I asked the manufacturer for a copy of the owners manual, but they are stalling and acting as if the information is classified. What are they hiding? And now, the roof is stuck in the closed position. So, in reality, this isn't even a real convertible at all!! Needless to say, I made a horrible decision for me and my family. While my rival in the neighborhood enjoys using his pickup to accomplish daily chores, my convertible stays parked behind my garage. But, I think I made the right call when I decided to give my "convertible" a name: Sarah Palin.

The financial crisis casts bleak light on McCain's economic policy.

Momentum since the RNC has slowed and reversed, with Obama back up by 2% at Gallup.

What do the Republicans need? Another pig in lipstick, another smokescreen to keep the debate off the major issues.

And by miraculous, say, "divine" intervention, nous voilà! Palin-Yahoo!-E-mail-Gate!

Ahhhhhhh! Now the Republicans are back at what they do best, expressing their incredulous outrage, avoiding serious debate for yet another day.

From the party that brought you the 9/11-Iraq connection, could you really put it past them to create this story themselves?

Just goes to show ya, there's no such thing as keeping secrets or being able to hide anything. Sooner or later the turd floats to the top and makes itself visible. The damage was already done when Pelin by her own volition, refused to testify. Why? Because without any other outside effort she herself has caused a an overwhelming shadow of doubt upon herself and her validity as a real candidate that can never be explained nor excused. This will turn out to be her red herring. She really shot herself in the foot this time and I think she and the campaign people realize it. Its too late. There is no spin or fix out of this one.

But your question ("So...if she's going to use this little trick out of cheney and w's playbook, why wouldn't she use an RNC account instead of Yahoo?") is a good one, and I guess that we don't actually know yet whether Sarah Palin has her own RNC email account so that she can conduct official Alaska State business away from the prying eyes of those who would actually dare to subject her to the rules and regulations as they apply to everyone else in Alaska government. ... Except, of course, those aides that Governor Palin explicity directs to use their own personal email accounts to avoid accountability.

It doesn't take a hacker to figure out that Sarah Palin is dangerously ill-prepared to be president of the United States when called upon to take that enormous responsibility. She did a lousy job as mayor of tinytown, a lousy job as Governor, filled with controversy... and she was picked to run because she's a woman, because she's a right wing super-religious nutcake, and because she comes across as attractive and likable to gullable people when she speaks.

Palin is doing a great job of taking HERSELF down! Dems can just sit back and watch this ship sink.

She is a one trick pony in a cheap trick circus. She has zero experience. She has one speech. And the lies Lies LIES!!

Lie:
Sarah Palin said she is a maverick reformer
Fact:
As mayor, Palin raised taxes on everything from groceries to income. She asked for and received $27 million worth of earmarks for her town of 6,000. She left her town in tremendous debt when she left office. She lied about firing her personal chef and selling that plane on e-bay. She is currently governor of the state with the HIGHEST tax and spending rate per person in the US. She supported the Bridge to Nowhere.

Lie:
Palin believes in small government
Fact:
Palin abused her political power by firing a librarian that would not ban books she had issues with. She abused her power as governor to get her ex-brother in law fired from his job as Alaska State Trooper.

Lie: Palin said she supports "special needs" children
Fact: Palin slashed the funds for the Special Olympics in Alaska! Sick, just sick, Sarah.

Lie: Palin said she improvised her one hit wonder speech at the convention because the teleprompter malfunctioned.
Fact: Reporters standing behind the teleprompter, as well as Republicans in charge of running the convention, exposed this as a lie: the teleprompter had no malfunctions during her speech.

Lie:
Sarah Palin is a victim of sexism
Fact:
The only way to be sexist is for the media to go easy on Sarah Palin simply because she's a woman. That would be like saying "hey, we won't ask her the tough questions because she's a woman and she can't handle the rough treatment."

Posted by: Sarah is a phony | September 17, 2008 9:47 PM

Hacking into someone's email is against the law! If you can condone that, why don't we let everyone pick and choose which laws they want to follow. Then we don't even need lawmakers.
No matter how much we want our candidate to win, we must stand up to the disgraceful way the media covers the election. We must let the candidates know that attacking each other doesn't win our support.
Unfortunately, most people would rather watch a fight than an intelligent discussion about the issues.
We the people.

webgrrl posts: "Not even the hacker, who poured through every email she had in her inbox, claims he found anything incriminating."

The incriminating evidence is the official Alaska State business that was conducted on Palin's unmonitored personal email accounts. She also hid behind her executive shield when she refused to comply with a public records request for emails sent from her personal account that had to do with official Alaska State business. Palin clearly considers herself above the law and is cavalier about protecting the interests of the State of Alaska and its citizens. Those actions are indefensible, regardless of what the hacker is guilty of.

While I think it is a travesty that noone's business is their own anymore, I further think that the service required of the public official dictates consideration of the appropriate protocols - to protect the people she's working for. I also think that the more transparency we have in governmental workings, the better off we are. The opacity model is flawed in all aspects concerning the "bigger picture". The public does have a right to know what their officials are doing at work.

More evidence that Palin is completely incompetent. I'm sure she's a great mom, and a beauty queen and all that, but we can't have an amateur like this running the country if McCain passes on. 9 of our Vice Presidents have succeeded as President, it is rather common.

I am more interested to know the names of the Yahoo employees who are responsible for investigating account abuse - and I am sure we would discover that they are responsible for this leak.

I'll pray that God removes your fear. It's o.k. calm down...everything's in GODS hands. You have absolutely nothing to do with the outcome of this election. If you're a Democrat and GOD wants you to vote Republican...you will.
You are completely powerless over everything. The sooner you realize that GOD & GOP are in charge...and get used to that... the better off you'll be. You might even add a couple of years to your life.
Don't struggle...We can medicate you if you have trouble with the GOD stuff.

So that it can delay the investigation until after the election. Who cares then, win or lose.

Lol McCain and Palin, not too hot on the technology. I mean, don't you think it's necessary to be technologically savvy to be a good president? What if this happened to McCain during presidency and the location of some of our surface-to-air missiles was disclosed? I mean, despite legalities, it's kind of embarrassing to have such an important email password guessed (most likely).

And to all the people who automatically associate this with Obama are annoying. Sure, it probably wasn't a Palin groupy. But to start pointing fingers at people is pretty unethical. Typical Republicans I guess.

Don't republicans like to claim that if you're not doing anything wrong, you shouldn't worry about the government spying on you?

So why isn't the opposite true when the spying shoe is on the other foot?

If a government official is not doing anything wrong, she shouldn't worry about getting spied on by citizens.

Right, republicans? Right????

It's sad that it took an illegal incident of hacking to get the media to start talking about Palin's illegal use of private email accounts to evade public scrutiny of some of her crony hiring and firing processes. This woman has Rove/Bush written all over her style of ethics, but the media is too scared to look like they're being hard on her to actually do their job and focus on this.

Alan posted: "We should have trained hackers at the FBI looking for this sort of stuff."

They do. It's called e-discovery. It's a relatively new field in forensic science that can find information stored in computers, servers and websites that no one would guess was there. Computer experts can go out on the WWW and find amazing amounts of information that are stored in public places. Computer experts can also go onto the average PC and find data that a user thought he/she had deleted years ago. It really is amazing. This presents real challenges for businesses and individuals alike, who nowadays must be extremely vigilant about protecting privacy.

Yes it looks like the wikileaks site has been completely shut down. We should all be wondering why. Did they do it themselves? Or somebody else? Hmmm...either way, some of the content can be found in other places searching terms "palin" and "wikileaks" together. What I have seen so far makes wikileaks' claims look legit. She's been using private accounts for government business.

Posted by: $@m | September 17, 2008 9:37 PM

A "journalist" today is the master of suggestion and persuasion and not even interested in informing or getting the facts. Most anti-palins will come away from this article convinced Governor Palin used yahoo for official business even though there is no evidence of that. You use the power of suggestion to convince people that she's not fit for national office instead of facts.

The focus of this article should have been the violation of the law of the hacker and the sites who posted what he found.

Not even the hacker, who poured through every email she had in her inbox, claims he found anything incriminating.

This is piss-poor journalism, but an excellent example of propaganda.

Posted by: w3bgrrl | September 17, 2008 9:36 PM

Where is the ACLU or the 'anti-Patriot act folks' on this? I guess they are only concerned if the "mean-old government" illegally obtains private information. I suppose it is OK for an individual to break the law and distribute personal information. Good to know. I have a sneaky suspicion that this may be a 'double standard' but in order to be a good liberal you need to have a certain 'flexible' morality.

This is the exact reason that the National gov spends a sh!t ton of money on secure encrypted networks. Forget who hacked it. They should be found and punished, but the problem remains that Palin used an easily hacked email account to conduct state business. When OIF started all email was conducted through secure channels by not allowing troops to access yahoo, hotmail, and other web-based email accounts for this implicit purpose. It's her own fault and I have no sympathy. I'm sure all departments of the FED do the same. This just proves that Palin is not ready to accept any role that deals with national security because she wants the opinion of sis or hubby.

I'm amazed at the self-righteous indignation directed at all Democrats because someone somewhere hacked Palin's email. This was an individual act by an individual, or small group, intent on mischief, not an action of the DNC. This is behavior by some Republicans out there is off the wall.

To try and attribute this to all Democrats, or any Democrats acting in an official capacity is delusional. Grow up and get a life!

I'm also seeing the basically the same text repeated over & over about voting McCain in '08 so Hillary can run in '12. These emails smack of Republicans posing as disillusioned Democrats to try and entice a few votes away from Obama to the McCain/Nutbar ticket.

Look at the financial meltdown going on around you right now that has resulted from Republican neocon policies. Phil Gramm, McCain's shadow advisor was one of the biggest pushers for getting the government out of the business of regulating financial institutions. 4 years of McCain would be 4 more years of the Bush/Cheney/neocon politics that has brought the U.S. to the brink of bankruptcy. Now there's even talk of the U.S. federal government defaulting on its debt. McCain will bring more support for the military-industrial complex and even lower taxes on the wealthy. As if the U.S. doesn't owe China and Japan enough already.

I supported Hillary and now fully support Obama because Obama and Hillary would both bring the change necessary in the U.S. government. McCain will be 4 more years that the U.S. cannot at all afford.

"And, like Bush, McCain has a remarkable affinity for lobbyists. His campaign has, by my count, 134 lobbyists serving as bundlers or advisers or staff members. He has chosen to associate himself with people who have lobbied for foreign dictators, big oil companies and every corporate special interest you can think of. And yet he gets away with calling himself a reformer. Now, 134 lobbyists are not lining up to support McCain because they actually believe he’s a reformer. If John McCain’s a reformer, I’m a Hassidic diamond merchant.

If Barack Obama can get every voter to learn just two numbers, he will be president. Those numbers are 91 and 134. If by Election Day every American knows McCain votes with Bush 91 percent of the time and has 134 lobbyists in his campaign, then the myth of the maverick reformer will be dead. And with it, McCain’s chances of following his unlikely soul mate as president."

Anonymous says that he is voting Republican because he is no longer proud of the Democrats because some citizen hacked Sarah Palin's personal email account. ... That she was wrongfully using to conduct official Alaska State business. ... In violation of the ethics rules that govern her and her employees and in violation of the security protocols put in place to protect privileged communications made by the Governor's office. ... And then worried about whether those emails could be subpoenaed in connection with the investigation into her abuse of power in attempting to have her ex-brother-in-law fired. So you are really more proud of Sarah Palin for her illegal, immoral, unethical, dangerous actions, than those of the hacker who exposed Sarah Palin's illegal, immoral, unethical, dangerous behavior? And that is what is driving your vote for McCain? I hope you realize that you are only voting for a criminal mentality if that is the basis of your vote for McCain.

Ever think that maybe the hacker might actually be a Republican who just has enough morals that he is disgusted by the way that Sarah Palin actually behaves, while constantly touting herself as being pure as the driven snow? Yeah, I don't believe that either. I think the hacker hates McCain, Palin and Republicans in general. What the hacker did is not excusable, but the fact that her email account was hacked doesn't excuse Sarah Palin's behavior, either.

what scares me the most hasn't been mentioned. The fact that she's dumb enough to even ask if using her private e-mail account would make her messages immune from subpoena, or if messages to a Blackberry are immune too. The whole idea of conducting public business on private e-mail accounts to hide them at all, let alone supposedly protect them from subpoena, is laughable. In a court of law, any message of any kind through any medium however stored, is subject to subpoena, unless it's with your lawyer or otherwise privileged in some way.

the fact that she would want to keep her conduct of public business secret and immune from subpoena in the first place doesn't exactly thrill me either

Alan,

I can't believe you are comparing hackers to cops. COPS are sanctioned by LAW. Hackers are NOT.

We can trust cops (usually at least) not to abuse their powers. But hackers have nothing to keep them in check. Hackers can basically do anything they want (provided that they don't get caught) in order to promote their own agenda.

For example, a pro-obama hacker can do anything in his/her power to deliberately invade the privacy of republicans (in this case, sarah palin)

Cops, however, cannot deliberately only arrest blacks or other specific groups.

Would you trust your security to a cop or to a hacker?

honestly, your comment is the height of silliness.

SO FOR YOUR OWN SAKE DON'T VOTE FOR A REPUBLICAN THIS NOVEMBER BECAUSE POLE SHIFT IS POSSIBLE DURING THE NEXT PRESIDENTS TENURE. AND HAVE YOU GUYS WONDER WHY REPUBLICANS BUSH AND NOW MCCAIN WANTING TO CONTINUE
AND EXPAND THE SPYING PROGRAM? TO SAVE US FROM TERRORITS?
I DIDN'T THINK SO BUT TO TAKE CONTROL IN THE AFTERLIFE AND LOOK TO REMOVE ANYONE THREATENING THEM WHICH INCLUDES THE U.S. CITIZENS.

REPUBLICANS BELIEVE THAT U.S. CITIZENS ARE THE TERRORISTS AND THAT THE TERRORISTS THE MAJORITY OF U.S. CITIZENS BELIEVE IN ARE ACTUALLY BENEFITING THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, THUS REPUBLICANS ARE A FRIEND TO TERRORISTS WHICH MEANS ONLY ONE THING. YOU ARE CONSIDERED A TERRORIST TO THEM BECAUSE THEY SAY YOU WOULD INTERFERE WITH THEM AFTER THE POLESHIFT REGARDLESS OF WHETHER YOU ARE A REPUBLICAN OR A DEMOCRAT MATTERS NOT. WHICH IS WHY THEY ARE CONTINUTING TO EXPAND THE SPYING PROGRAM TO MAKE SURE THEY KEEP AN EYE ON ANY POTENTIAL THREATS ON U.S. SOIL WHICH INCLUDES THE U.S. CITIZENS. I'LL BET YOU ANYTHING THAT A REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED WHITE HOUSE OR CONGRESS DURING AND AFTER THE POLESHIFT ASSURES YOUR DEATH AND THESE COWARDS GOING TO THEIR BUNKERS WHILE ALL OF YOU SUFFER FROM STARVATION OR FROM DEHYDRATION. OBAMA DOESN'T EVEN KNOW THE COMING POLE SHIFT, HE JUST HEARD RUMORS AND I'M SURE THAT HE HAS NO PLANS TO BETTER HIMSELF AFTER THE POLE SHIFT BUT TO ONLY AID AND ASSIST THOSE IN NEED.

MCCAIN KNOWS OF THE COMING POLE SHIFT AND THIS MEANS TROUBLE. ITS FUNNY HOW SOME PEOPLE ARE VOTING FOR MCCAIN THIS NOVEMBER BUT THEN THEY INTEND YOUR DEATH AFTER THE POLE SHIFT FOR THOSE REMAINING THAT STILL SURVIVED.
I HAVE A FAMILY WITH 5 KIDS AND I FEEL LIKE I WILL BE IN DANGER EVEN IF I SURVIVE THE POLE SHIFT BECAUSE OF THE REPUBLICANS AND THEIR SPYING PROGRAM.

I ACTUALLY HAD A DREAM ABOUT THIS EXACT EVENT LAST NIGHT POTENTIALLY HAPPENING. THIS IS NO ACCIDENT AND IT FELT SO REAL. I WAS ALSO SHOWN JOHN MCCAIN AND PALIN TOGETHER TALKING ABOUT HOW TO CONTROL THE HUMAN POPULATION AND HOW TO WEED THEM OUT THROUGH VARIOUS DISEASES. FOR MY FAMILY AND YOUR FAMILY'S SAKE DON'T VOTE FOR THESE TWO FACE
IDIOTS. OBAMA IN MY DREAM WAS SHOWN AS A COMPASSIONATE MAN WHO LOOKED TO AID THOSE IN TROUBLE. THIS IS NO LIE.. AND IM NOT SAYING THIS JUST BECAUSE I LIKE ONE CANDIDATE OVER THE OTHER. IT WAS ACTUALLY SHOWN TO ME IN MY DREAM.

The woman put conducted government business with a Yahoo account. She did it specifically to avoid having records of her dealings. This is illegal. If you do this at work, you will be fired and possibly prosecuted.

This is patently unacceptable, both her actions (making citizens less safe by making sensitive info less secure) and her reason for doing this (to skirt the law.)

That said, it was unethical for whatever teenager did this in his parents basement to do it. However, the point remains.

I'm a recently retired IT security professional and have two comments. First, government and private sector e-mail systems can be protected with specialized methodologies such as one time password systems. Numeric passwords change once/minute with some of these systems. With these mechanisms available it's irresponsible to use Yahoo like e-mail.

Second, bless these and other hackers. Were it not for the visibility accorded break-ins such as this, our international "competitors" (Iran, China, North Korea, etc) would be hacking US computer sites with abandon. The visibility o security problems such as this facilited by our own "responsible" hackers is the only reason we have decent security in this country. Otherwise no organization, public or private, would be willing to pay for it

I'm suprised how many people ask why that its illegal to hack into Yahoo. If it exposes crimes, then is that not for the greater good? No different than a cop speeding to catch a speeder. Why don't people whine when cops break the law? Because its better to have a trained cop speed than an average joe. So why is this different? We should have trained hackers at the FBI looking for this sort of stuff. I say if her password was weak, she was fair game. And if any other public officials out there knowlingly send confidential information over the public internet, may they be exposed too. I'm suprised the FBI doesn't have the ISP's searching for this type of stuff.

I think anyone hacking into other's private info for gain or malicious activity is OUTRIGHT DISGUSTING whether Democrat, Republican, Independent, or whomever. REAL hacking is never for this. REAL HACKERS don't take sides, on anyone's side. This indicent is a TOTAL violation of privacy, which I'm very disgusted by. I've never been a Palin or Republican fan, but things like this make me want to support Palin because everyone seems to be picking on her. My doubts are now with Yahoo. I'm definitely questioning Yahoo and it's ability to keep anything secure (or if Yahoo is a partisan supporting one single party) I'm definitely NOT A Yahoo fan anymore. I'd suggest everyone to change accounts if I were you.

Posted by: BewareOfYahoo | September 17, 2008 9:22 PM

I don't think the emails are gone. I think the accounts are simply turned off.

The emails were the subject of a state investigation and if they were deleted from both the database and the database backups, then there seem to good grounds for an obstruction of justice charge against the person who requested the deletion.

And it wouldn't be that hard to ferret this person out. And this person could then rat out the whole chain of command. So I don't think this is likely.

It sounds to me like Palin was just too stupid to use a secure password on her email account. And people just guessed it.

Im thinking the emails were saved before the account went dark and that Palin has jsut waived the privilege on them with her monkey business of using an unsecured server for state business - in violation of policy. The fact that other people not holding the privilege now have the information. through Palin's carelessness, is also a strong argument against the privilege.

It will be interesting to see how the rest of the story pans out.

ASSISTANCE REQUIRED FOR ACQUISITION OF REAL ESTATES

Dear Sarah Palin,

I write to inform you of my desire to acquire estates or landed
properties in your country on behalf of the Director of Contracts and
Finance Allocation of the Federal Ministry of works and Housing in
Nigeria.

Considering his very strategic and influential position, he would want
the transaction to be as strictly confidential as possible. He further
requires his identity to remain undisclosed at least for now, until the
completion of the transaction. Hence our desire to have an overseas
agent.

I have therefore been directed to inquire if you would agree to act as
our overseas agent in order to actualise this transaction.

The deal in brief is that the funds with which to carry out our proposed
investments in your country is presently in a coded/ secured account
with the Nigerian Apex Bank and we need your assistance to transfer the
funds to your country or any safe account outside your country in a
convenient bank account that will be provided by you before we can put
the funds into use. For this you shall be considered to have executed a
contract for the Ministry.

The contract sum of which shall run into US$15.5Million of which your
share shall be 30%, if you agree to be our overseas agent. Your area of
specialisation does not matter in this transaction, all that is required
of you is a safe account and your willingness to assist us acquire real
estates in your country.

As soon as payment is effected and the amount mentioned above is
successfully transferred into your account, we intend to use our own
share in acquiring some estates abroad. For this too, you shall serve as
our agent .

It might interest you to note that last year, a similar transaction was
carried out with one MR. CHIENCHEN YU of Taiwan, but after securing the
payment approvals, and payment effected, MR.CHIENCHEN YU changed his
numbers and addresses, and was no where to be found on our getting to
Taiwan. That was how we lost US$7.5Million. So this time around , I will
be with you before the remmittance is made into your provided account to
avoid a re-occurrence and allow trust to play a very minimal role until
performance is achieved.

You are requested to communicate your acceptance or otherwise of this
proposal, through my private e-mail account as it appears, after which
we shall discuss in details the modalities for seeing this transaction
through.

If however, you are not disposed to assist, kindly delete/detroy this
letter in view of the confidentiality of the proposed transaction and
interest of personalities involved.


Thank you in anticipation of your co-operation.

Your's sincerely,

Chief Oyinbolowo Eko

Let's just move the election to a week from now, vote, and get it over with. The senate is gonna be deadlocked anyway, since all the moderate republicans will lose, and be replaced by moderate democrats in the mold of Feinstein - a perfect recipe for do-nothing. And Iraq is gonna kick us out democratically, so it's just between McCain picking a fight with some pissant country like Burma oops Myanmar, or Obama tying down those same troops and money in Aqui-no-estan. Foreign relations wise, it's either the US being a laughingstock under McCain or a nebbish under Obama. Same difference.

"bill" YOU are a moron bc you blindly label anyone who disagrees with you as "republican".

I've been a democrat for as long as I live but I'm ALSO STRINGENTLY anti-stupidity.

YOU have a severe case of stupidity and you should refrain from contributing to the gene pool.

If you want to use the "seatbelt" analogy, you should realize that the Yahoo account passwords ARE the online version of "security". And in addition, your analogy is just damn crappy. Didn't you go to college? If you wanted to use a car analogy, what you SHOULD'VE said is "an insecure email account is like a car with NO LOCKS".

I can't stand obama morons. I will vote republican this year because the democrats have lost my respect. The democrats of today are no longer the true liberals. democrats of today are basically the pro-obama version of neo-cons.

Back to the topic of yahoo accounts. You should know that ANY password, however complicated, can be hacked with a program. Longer and more complicated passwords are harder, not IMPOSSIBLE to crack. If you have a program, you can find any password with enough time. There *ARE* only so many combinations you can make with alphabets+numbers+symbols.

You should be glad that most people, myself included, are moral and completely against illegal activities. If most people were less moral....I'd watch the security of your email accounts.........

You retards don't see the real issue here in your spin campaign defense of Mrs. Palin? Do you?

We are saying she was DUMB for conducting state business on her Yahoo account - while attempting to run for the 2nd highest office in the world. No one is debating the legality here you numbskulls. Of course it is illegal and the culprits should be punished.

Duh.

What is at the core of this debate is whether you should give someone access to NUC-U-Lur secrets if they use a friggin Yahoo account for state business? You are the party of security. You got some problems in your thought process if you think this is SECURE.

What if she gets elected? She'll be sending Pentagon security emails on her hotmail account? CIA action plans thru her gmail?

This shows poor judgment, there's nothing of a smear about it. It's government business on a private (non-gov) email. There are rules against this. She broke them. This is why there's rules against it.

She made her constituents less safe in order to evade the law!!! (Gov email addresses can be viewed in a legal investigation; personal yahoo accounts are much harder to get a warrant for.)

REPUBLICANS HAVE A PLAN TO KILL ANY REMAINING HUMANS IN THE AFTERLIFE OR POLESHIFT

SO FOR YOUR OWN SAKE DON'T VOTE FOR A REPUBLICAN THIS NOVEMBER BECAUSE POLE SHIFT IS POSSIBLE DURING THE NEXT PRESIDENTS TENURE. AND HAVE YOU GUYS WONDER WHY REPUBLICANS BUSH AND NOW MCCAIN WANTING TO CONTINUE
AND EXPAND THE SPYING PROGRAM? TO SAVE US FROM TERRORITS?
I DIDN'T THINK SO BUT TO TAKE CONTROL IN THE AFTERLIFE AND LOOK TO REMOVE ANYONE THREATENING THEM WHICH INCLUDES THE U.S. CITIZENS.

REPUBLICANS BELIEVE THAT U.S. CITIZENS ARE THE TERRORISTS AND THAT THE TERRORISTS THE MAJORITY OF U.S. CITIZENS BELIEVE IN ARE ACTUALLY BENEFITING THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, THUS REPUBLICANS ARE A FRIEND TO TERRORISTS WHICH MEANS ONLY ONE THING. YOU ARE CONSIDERED A TERRORIST TO THEM BECAUSE THEY SAY YOU WOULD INTERFERE WITH THEM AFTER THE POLESHIFT REGARDLESS OF WHETHER YOU ARE A REPUBLICAN OR A DEMOCRAT MATTERS NOT. WHICH IS WHY THEY ARE CONTINUTING TO EXPAND THE SPYING PROGRAM TO MAKE SURE THEY KEEP AN EYE ON ANY POTENTIAL THREATS ON U.S. SOIL WHICH INCLUDES THE U.S. CITIZENS. I'LL BET YOU ANYTHING THAT A REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED WHITE HOUSE OR CONGRESS DURING AND AFTER THE POLESHIFT ASSURES YOUR DEATH AND THESE COWARDS GOING TO THEIR BUNKERS WHILE ALL OF YOU SUFFER FROM STARVATION OR FROM DEHYDRATION. OBAMA DOESN'T EVEN KNOW THE COMING POLE SHIFT, HE JUST HEARD RUMORS AND I'M SURE THAT HE HAS NO PLANS TO BETTER HIMSELF AFTER THE POLE SHIFT BUT TO ONLY AID AND ASSIST THOSE IN NEED.

MCCAIN KNOWS OF THE COMING POLE SHIFT AND THIS MEANS TROUBLE. ITS FUNNY HOW SOME PEOPLE ARE VOTING FOR MCCAIN THIS NOVEMBER BUT THEN THEY INTEND YOUR DEATH AFTER THE POLE SHIFT FOR THOSE REMAINING THAT STILL SURVIVED.
I HAVE A FAMILY WITH 5 KIDS AND I FEEL LIKE I WILL BE IN DANGER EVEN IF I SURVIVE THE POLE SHIFT BECAUSE OF THE REPUBLICANS AND THEIR SPYING PROGRAM.

I ACTUALLY HAD A DREAM ABOUT THIS EXACT EVENT LAST NIGHT POTENTIALLY HAPPENING. THIS IS NO ACCIDENT AND IT FELT SO REAL. I WAS ALSO SHOWN JOHN MCCAIN AND PALIN TOGETHER TALKING ABOUT HOW TO CONTROL THE HUMAN POPULATION AND HOW TO WEED THEM OUT THROUGH VARIOUS DISEASES. FOR MY FAMILY AND YOUR FAMILY'S SAKE DON'T VOTE FOR THESE TWO FACE
IDIOTS. OBAMA IN MY DREAM WAS SHOWN AS A COMPASSIONATE MAN WHO LOOKED TO AID THOSE IN TROUBLE. THIS IS NO LIE.. AND IM NOT SAYING THIS JUST BECAUSE I LIKE ONE CANDIDATE OVER THE OTHER. IT WAS ACTUALLY SHOWN TO ME IN MY DREAM.

Anon posted: "politics had NOTHING to do with this."

I wouldn't go that far. I'm sure that politics has everything to do with this. I'm sure that some computer guru who hates McCain, Palin and Republicans figured that he/she could find a personal email address for Sarah Palin and hack into it. I'm also sure that he/she had no idea what they would find. But having found a personal email address for Sarah Palin and finding it full of incriminating evidence, you know that the hacker was more than happy to publish the goods on the internet!

Having said that, it is a crime to hack another user's email account. The actual contents of the email account should not be published on the internet, but instead turned over to authorities so that a proper investigation can be conducted. And, yes, the hacker should be investigated as well as Sarah Palin, and they should both be prosecuted for whatever crimes they have committed.

Gee...that's a remark from a stupid republican who doesn't get it.

As a government official, she has a government email account, which IS secure. She chose to have a yahoo account, and as a government official, she KNOWS better. On the other hand, she's a Republican; and they aren't known for being too bright.

It's Palin's fault for having a Yahoo account.

One can only imagine what she's trying to hide because a government email account can also be monitored.

The McCain camp and federal government, with all of the technology at their disposal, will claim that they can't find out who it is which makes me wonder what McCain and Palin are trying to pull.

And obama crawls into one of those sewer manholes and pulls a brick out of the sewer wall that opens to a passage that goes down into the hacker lair and when he gets down there they're like "HAIL PROPHET OBAMA! WHEN DO WE STRIKE SIRE?!" and he says "NOW MY CHILDREN>>> NOW IS THE TIME" and then they all sit down in their stinky office chairs and start doing their hacking stuff with RAMs and disk drives and stuffs and then BAM!, they're into her acoount and they start planting family photos of her and fake emails and stuff. and obama is like " good. good."

Barack Obama has stood firm on employee free speech rights, fighting to make sure that those who dare commit the truth on behalf public integrity, the taxpayer and national security are protected.

John McCain refuses to commit to real whistleblower protections.

Even now, conservative free speech groups are furiously lobbying him to take a stand, in part to try to neutralize Obama's leadership on the issue.

I know how important this is, having won the U.S. Office of Special Counsel's "Public Servant Award"--the highest award given in the federal service to whistleblowers and, in my case, the first one given to a national security whistleblower. [www.osc.gov/documents/press/2001/pr01_16.htm]

I just don't understand her sometimes. I can't kill a fly!

And no one deserves to have their accounts hacked. Shameful behavior.

Here is is one of the reasons I don't understand Sarah.

On her way to being Governor, Sarah actually hacked her party boss's account and got him fired. She Hacked Him. She knows how to Hack!

I like my friend, but I wouldn't want him to be Vice President.

Posted by: AmazinPalin | September 17, 2008 9:13 PM

This is completely shocking. If she uses a non-governmental personal email account to conduct business, this could be devastating to America. It may mean nothing as a governor, but, (provided she was elected) as the vice president of the nation, using a Yahoo email that was easily hacked could easily give away critical/vital information to anyone seeking to hurt the United States. And with John McCain's light-heartedness over not knowing how to use a computer (we all know he can't type because of injuries, but he should at least be familiar with them), if they are elected, the downfall of America won't come from terrorists planning offensives, but instead from one small hacker who decided to hack into "gov.sarah@yahoo.com". I personally will be nervous if they win the election.

Posted by: Jon | September 17, 2008 9:12 PM

Secure Email?!?!

Email in general is about as secure as posting to this forum or anywhere else that is not SSL encrypted.

Oh, BTW, email between servers is not encrypted and can easily be picked up by anyone in the right place on the network.

And security in general? Does anyone know anything about the security of local city, county, state or federal government computer systems?

Most of the web sites, email accounts and even data storage is not hosted in-house, instead its outsourced and for good reason, it takes a good IT department to maintain even minimal and reasonable security. The data stored and emails passed through those servers and "most" government servers are not very secure, but they are better off outsourcing or using free services like Yahoo or Google for general email usage.

Security is slightly better on the federal level, but not by much, its more security by obscurity.

Then there is the trade off between security and usability. Many times government email systems are hit hard with inquiries or saturated with spam dictionary attacks and the IT departments don't have experience solving those problems, so they go days or weeks without the ability to use their email, so they are forced to use Yahoo, Gmail or other similar services that provide nearly 24x7x365 reliable email service at no cost to tax-payers.

I would love to have a comfy job making $60-120k/year maintaining servers for small and medium government offices. We know they need it but, instead, they'll pay a young college student with little or no systems security experience, to maintain the integrity of their systems and work that student to the bone doing all kinds of odd tasks, keeping them from ever focusing on security long enough to get a real grasp on the situation.

First, the characterization of this story is left slanted. read any of the 373 other stories to see it. Second, what a bunch of silly posts. Obama should be in Jail along with his Dem cronies especially Barney Frank for setting in motion this mess we are in now with FNMA and FHSLC since they implemented the policies and because they were left unchecked by the repubs since 1994 we should throw them out too. Obama for kissing up to these crooks since he left Chicago the opportunistic Lawyer thief. All you nutroot clowns should be the ones slamming the cells on these scheming dogs but your own self serving egocentric mindsets have you trapped in soundbite hell as you drool and slaver over whatever your lib media throws you to gnaw on. I think this site actually lists the site to see the screenshots of her emails. Go look and satisfy your curiosity for the next few seconds until your attention span calls you to have another bong hit and be sure to vote on November 5th.set your alarms your pied piper is counting on you.

Being a Hillary supporter I'm voting McCain so Hillary can run in 2012.

Hillary supporters, 18 Million of us. if you vote Obama and he wins Hillary cannot run in 2012, think about that.

President Hillary Clinton 2012 - Please think about what you're doing.

We can live with McCain for 4 years, the GOP can't stand him and Hillary will blow him away.

P.S. Hillary can't stand Obama and some day his legal threats to our campaign will be told.

The reason that people can feel such intense anger at Sarah Palin for this episode is that she tries to sell herself as a person who is above board in all matters. Thus far, however, Sarah Palin has been anything but above board. She has, at best, exaggerated her opposition to the Bridge to Nowhere and, at worst, outright lied about it. She has lied about whether she has sought earmarks while both Mayor of Wasilla and Governor of Alaska. She is stonewalling investigators who are trying to determine whether she abused her power as Governor when she attempted to have her ex-brother-in-law fired. And, perhaps worse, she has instructed her staff to stonewall the investigators, as well. She has lied about her travels abroad. She has tried to harm people who are civil servants and simply trying to earn a living in furtherance of her own personal agenda and ideology. So, in essence, what people are angry about is the fact that, once again, Sarah Palin has been caught doing something deceitful, immoral, unethical, dishonest and, possibly, criminal herself. I would be willing to place a wager that Alaska allows for criminal penalties for state employees that compromise state security.

These are the kind of people that support Barack Obama. Criminals, and uneducated losers. Maybe that's why the Democratic party are trying to find a way to make it legal for former convicts to be allowed to vote again in key states. Because those are the only kind of people they can get.

Not that it matters, criminals and dead people seem to vote every year. (And notice they always vote for Dems? Like that one guy who voted for Kerry even though he had been Dead for 20 years!?!) Lol! This is the liberal mentality and why Obama must NEVER be allowed to take office.

Then why isn't Palin being charged. She hacked into a co-committee person computer!

http://www.consortiumnews.com/2008/083008a.html

Then, as chairwoman of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, she fell into a public spat with fellow commissioner Randy Ruedrich, the state’s GOP chairman.

In 2003, she reported Ruedrich to Gov. Frank Murkowski’s administration, saying she suspected him of an ethics breach in conducting work for the state GOP on government time.

To obtain evidence of Ruedrich’s alleged malfeasance, Palin hacked into his computer, an ethical lapse in its own right. She resigned from the commission in January 2004

Looks like she has a lot to hide!! IMO

Posted by: Terri | September 17, 2008 9:10 PM

Anyone who thinks this is an invasion of privacy needs to recognize that SHE WAS USING THIS ACCOUNT FOR GOVERNMENT BUSINESS. We're supposed to be able to tell what our elected officials are doing, and yet Palin has been hiding her communications in private accounts to keep us from doing so. So while I don't support the posting of her personal details, the fact that there is government material on that should be a huge warning sign.

Also, from what I hear, the password was her zip code. Not too smart from somebody that is supposed to be able to lead the free world.

Posted by: Jon | September 17, 2008 9:10 PM

This is why an Obama presidency scares me. Here are the type of people who will vote for him.

Drugged up celebrutards like Lindsay Lohan

Convicted and unrepentant terrirosts like Bill Ayers

White, Jewish and American haters like Ferrahkan and Wright.

People who threaten to start racial riots (Ala Rodney King) if he is not voted president

People who praise the fact that Obama's camp want to help make it legal for convicted felons to vote.

People who praise those who commit ILLEGAL acts by INVADING THE PRIVACY of someone, and plastering it all over the internet. People who criminalize the VICTIM, and sactify the OFFENDERS.

We established a LONG time ago that just because a rape victim wore a short skirt, didn't mean she was asking for it.

The same goes for this case. Just because she has a PRIVATE email account on yahoo does not mean she deserved to be hacked.

There is NO EXCUSE for criminal activity... unless you're a liberal.

Who else will vote for Obama?

Well, for one... definately convicts. Even if they don't get to vote, felons have voted by the thousands in various elections. (Almost always Democrat).

And dead people. One guy who had been dead for almost 20 years voted Kerry last election. Dead voters always seem to vote Democrat too.

This is the liberal mentality. Think like me, act like me, or we'll hurt you.

Liberals talk peace and love while THREATENING those who don't agree with their point of view.

Liberals talk about freedom of speech, all the while trying to take it away from those who oppose them.

The tell tale sign of the liberal mentality...

"Vote... or DIE!"

Even their slogans are guarded threats.

Whilst I do think it's bad that any legal case against Palin might be jeopardised because of this hacking incident at least it has made it abundantly clear that she is a liar and no better than Bush.

When one of your main policies 'Transparent' government and at the same time you're using personal email addresses to send Government emails simply so they can't be subpoenaed then what credibility do you have left?

Unfortunately from the intelligence of half of the posters on this board, perhaps it will make little difference in the final outcome of the election.

Posted by: Itsumishi | September 17, 2008 9:09 PM

"How can hacking into her email be an invasion, when the yahoo email accounts have been used for the dominant purpose of work related to her office? It is public property."

Uh..no it's not public property, it's belongs to the individual.

Only the e-mail account belonging to her governor's position is in the public venue and even then it would probably take a subpoena for another goverment agency to get the e-mails.

It's what they call a court order. They definitely would need a court order to get
the yahoo e-mails.

The principle speaks for itself, however...

Why would Palin et al revert to using personal accounts in the first place if it was not an attempt to be evasive...?

And yes, there is evidence that this was a determined decision to accomplish that very end...

She wasn't hacked, the answer to her 'secret question' was her zipcode (yes, seriously) which is publicly available. The "hackers" made a few random guesses before landing on the correct one, then reset her password to one of their choice and strolled on in. You would think Yahoo PR would be all over this- it's not an example of any security vulnerabilities on their part, it's an example of Gov. Palin lacking awareness of basic computer security and commonsense. How two computer-illiterate politicians plan to lead a nation whose economy and infrastructure is dependent upon the internet and computer technology is absolutely mystifying to me.

If the emails are deleted and the accounts are not simply turned off, then it should be relatively easy to get to the bottom of this.

Given that there is an active request for the emails from an investigating body, deleting the emails could be viewed as an obstruction of justice.

One need only contact Yahoo and ask who physically deleted the emails. Next explain the ten year sentence in the Federal Pen that this person faces. Next, explain that this sentence would be waived if the person reveals who asked him to delete the emails. And so on up the food chain.

In addition, deleting the emails has to be a very deliberate and methodical act. I am sure that yahoo has the mail in it's nightly backups, or it's off site mirrored server. Not only would the main copies of the emails need to be deleted, but one would have to go back and methodically clean out all the back ups as well.

Here's an idea, research policies, issues, etc., not campaign propaganda from either side.

Make your decision based on more than who is running for your party.

The USA is doomed if this is how we continue to decide political issues. We are the most powerful (for now at least) nation in the world, and we are focused on quips, one-liners, celeb politicians, and a whole slew of things that should be a disgrace to anyone claiming that they are involved in a democratic process.

this allows the investigation into palin's camp to continue since the information was not obtained illegaly by the prosecuting team themselves and surprise it clearly shows that palin had been using a personal email to conduct business of state in an insecure environment

moreover the "hack" appears to have been just one guy's lucky break into the account which means it had a very unsecure password,

Some of those troops are literally yards from American soil. Seems to be the perfect cover. Watch for incursions that result in collateral damage on US soil. Don't say someone didn't tell you so.

This using private email accounts is a trick that Sarah Palin learned from the Bush Administration. They, too, were accused of using private email accounts provided by the RNC to conduct official business. It was the Bush Administration's favorite way to communicate with their lobbyist pals. Bush and Cheney also stupidly thought that they wouldn't get caught pulling a stunt like this.

Posted by: Kay Decker | September 17, 2008 9:01 PM

How can hacking into her email be an invasion, when the yahoo email accounts have been used for the dominant purpose of work related to her office? It is public property.

Why is'nt Palin cooperating with the probe? IS SHE ABOVE THE LAW? If she is, wait till she becomes the President of USA.
All you people who voted for Republicans in the last 8 years are responsible for the mess we are in right now. Go ahead and vote Republican again for another 4 years chaos.

For a large number of these people the answer to your question is simple, because he is black. It doesn't matter his mother was white, all they see is color so they would rather vote for a clueless pair of white folk than someone who is articulate, thinks beyond the current second and would better address the issues which matter, just because of color.

My husband is a school board chair--hardly a politician on Palin's level. He has been told to assume that all email is public and NEVER to send anything in email he would not want to read in the local paper. Since she decided to do gov't business on yahoo--to (she thought) circumvent ethics---she has to make those emails public under FIA or in her ethics investigation.

Here is a question i asked to a well known channel.. Check it out!

Can you tell me what is the real purpose behind the endless spying programs conducted by our government? They claim this is to hunt the terrorists to protect the American people and yet their actions never show any care for the American people. I believe this program is in place because to spy on Americans and not terrorists. This is perhaps how a great truther of information gets killed for knowing too much or is a threat to the government. And its no accident that the only major legislation proposed by Republicans and passed by Congress is related to spying whether they be FISA or the Patriot Act. My question to you are my suspicions correct?

The FBI was aware of the Arabs who were in the US learning how to fly commercial airliners prior to 9.11, and tracking them. In fact, they were assisting them, clearing the way so they could get their training, as so many within the US government wanted a 9.11 type of excuse to declare martial law and/or invade the oil fields of the Middle East and the like. Did they need the wiretapping privileges to learn about these Arabs and their plans?

Hardly. If you look at the overall plans of the elite during the past couple of decades, as the time of the coming pole shift approaches, you will see an increasing use of repressive tools, and an allowance for government to suppress the people. Executive orders allowing the President to quickly and easily declare martial law have been put into place since the era of Reagan. The number of such executive orders increased under Bush. Microchips in people and pets has sprung up, as a concept pushed, only recently, as has genetically identifying people, all of which facilitates sorting people into those who would be good workers and those who should be eliminated.

The whole trend is toward a "1984" type of government infrastructure, so the public is fed lies and is forced to be compliant. Fear of terrorism, and denial of the insider involvement in 9.11 has placed the burden of proof on the Democrats, who were struggling to get elected in large enough numbers to overcome the Republican grip. Of course this firm grip was due to voter fraud, but the fear of informing the public that a key element of their democracy had been taken from them stayed the hands of those who would have made this fight an open one.

How does one tell the American public that their vote has been stolen and a fraud is in the White House? Those who would bring this to light feared public chaos and social disruption. The fight went underground, into blocking what the Bush administration was trying to do. But to declare that the government should not have the tools they claimed they needed was considered fatal, as then the Republicans would claim the Democrats were soft on terror. Thus, temporarily, such repressive laws have been allowed.

"Why do you people dislike obama? All i have heard him talk about is strait up stuff that benefits the middle class."

Forget the middle class. If you had been paying attention, Americans don't like it and don't support it.

The crappy state of the economy has nothing to do with the gored and bleeding middle class. We sell our jobs overseas every day and import Chinese goods to stock our walmarts because we're doing what's best for the economy, and not what's best for the select few who just like to see how big their bank accounts can swell.

Posted by: wut | September 17, 2008 8:58 PM

Are none of you reading the actual text here? In it I see a lot of Palin critics yelping about her use of Yahoo to conduct state business, but I don't see any examples of sensitive information having been divulged in this hacked account. So she used the account to send encouragement to a colleague who was feeling beat up by a talk-show host -- is that so strategic and top secret? Meanwhile, where is the outrage toward the hackers? They truly are the slime of the earth, and if you ever raise your own profile to something beyond an anonymous flamer going by a cutesy-offensive user name, you will discover that for yourself.

There were no "Obama spies" involved in this little trick. 4chan, a group of mostly teenaged hackers, did this. You can read about them here:

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/08/03/magazine/03trolls-t.html?bl&ex=1217736000&en=729a61d7e004a7dd&ei=5087%0A

The fact is, if Palin had followed the rules and conducted her official business on her official e-mail, rather than conducting state business on a private account to avoid anything she said going public, none of this would have happened. The reason why there are rules against lawmakers conducting official business on non-official e-mails is because they lack proper security and are easily hacked.

Stop blaming Barack Obama for Sarah Palin's foolishness. He had nothing to do with this. A bunch of kids who like to play malicious tricks on people on the internet, and Sarah Palin's desire to keep her actions a secret from the public, are whom you can thank for this crap.

REPUBLICANS HAVE A PLAN TO KILL ANY REMAINING HUMANS IN THE AFTERLIFE OR POLESHIFT

SO FOR YOUR OWN SAKE DON'T VOTE FOR A REPUBLICAN THIS NOVEMBER BECAUSE POLE SHIFT IS POSSIBLE DURING THE NEXT PRESIDENTS TENURE. AND HAVE YOU GUYS WONDER WHY REPUBLICANS BUSH AND NOW MCCAIN WANTING TO CONTINUE
AND EXPAND THE SPYING PROGRAM? TO SAVE US FROM TERRORITS?
I DIDN'T THINK SO BUT TO TAKE CONTROL IN THE AFTERLIFE AND LOOK TO REMOVE ANYONE THREATENING THEM WHICH INCLUDES THE U.S. CITIZENS.

REPUBLICANS BELIEVE THAT U.S. CITIZENS ARE THE TERRORISTS AND THAT THE TERRORISTS THE MAJORITY OF U.S. CITIZENS BELIEVE IN ARE ACTUALLY BENEFITING THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, THUS REPUBLICANS ARE A FRIEND TO TERRORISTS WHICH MEANS ONLY ONE THING. YOU ARE CONSIDERED A TERRORIST TO THEM BECAUSE THEY SAY YOU WOULD INTERFERE WITH THEM AFTER THE POLESHIFT REGARDLESS OF WHETHER YOU ARE A REPUBLICAN OR A DEMOCRAT MATTERS NOT. WHICH IS WHY THEY ARE CONTINUTING TO EXPAND THE SPYING PROGRAM TO MAKE SURE THEY KEEP AN EYE ON ANY POTENTIAL THREATS ON U.S. SOIL WHICH INCLUDES THE U.S. CITIZENS. I'LL BET YOU ANYTHING THAT A REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED WHITE HOUSE OR CONGRESS DURING AND AFTER THE POLESHIFT ASSURES YOUR DEATH AND THESE COWARDS GOING TO THEIR BUNKERS WHILE ALL OF YOU SUFFER FROM STARVATION OR FROM DEHYDRATION. OBAMA DOESN'T EVEN KNOW THE COMING POLE SHIFT, HE JUST HEARD RUMORS AND I'M SURE THAT HE HAS NO PLANS TO BETTER HIMSELF AFTER THE POLE SHIFT BUT TO ONLY AID AND ASSIST THOSE IN NEED.

MCCAIN KNOWS OF THE COMING POLE SHIFT AND THIS MEANS TROUBLE. ITS FUNNY HOW SOME PEOPLE ARE VOTING FOR MCCAIN THIS NOVEMBER BUT THEN THEY INTEND YOUR DEATH AFTER THE POLE SHIFT FOR THOSE REMAINING THAT STILL SURVIVED.
I HAVE A FAMILY WITH 5 KIDS AND I FEEL LIKE I WILL BE IN DANGER EVEN IF I SURVIVE THE POLE SHIFT BECAUSE OF THE REPUBLICANS AND THEIR SPYING PROGRAM.

I ACTUALLY HAD A DREAM ABOUT THIS EXACT EVENT LAST NIGHT POTENTIALLY HAPPENING. THIS IS NO ACCIDENT AND IT FELT SO REAL. I WAS ALSO SHOWN JOHN MCCAIN AND PALIN TOGETHER TALKING ABOUT HOW TO CONTROL THE HUMAN POPULATION AND HOW TO WEED THEM OUT THROUGH VARIOUS DISEASES. FOR MY FAMILY AND YOUR FAMILY'S SAKE DON'T VOTE FOR THESE TWO FACE
IDIOTS. OBAMA IN MY DREAM WAS SHOWN AS A COMPASSIONATE MAN WHO LOOKED TO AID THOSE IN TROUBLE. THIS IS NO LIE.. AND IM NOT SAYING THIS JUST BECAUSE I LIKE ONE CANDIDATE OVER THE OTHER. IT WAS ACTUALLY SHOWN TO ME IN MY DREAM.

HAS ANY OF YOU HAD SIMILAR EXPERIENCES LIKE THIS IN THEIR DREAMS?

To the women who are voting for McCain/Palin so that they can vote again for Hillary in 2012. Are you out of your f*ing minds? By then the democratic party will be too weak to win anything. If the democratic party does not win this election after the catastrophic moron that's been sitting in the white house for eight years bringing this country to a crawl, then it will have no chance after McCain. So congratulations Hillary women, the democratic party gave you voice and you in return p*ss on it.

If your happy with the worst economy since the great depression, war and tax breaks for the rich. Vote McCain please.

And palin? Dont vote for McCain just because he has a woman vp. She is not ready for this job. Remember JM nominated her just to get the hilary vote. If Obama would have picked hilary bet your ass he wouldnt have picked her.

But it was all of you who decided as a nation.

Congress, media, and the citizens.

You are all responsible.

It's disgusting the democratic congress, the media, the citizens blame only the Bush not taking any single responsibilty on themselves.

American media, American people,
this time again with your madness
support Obama and subscribe
unreasonable hatred to this one woman, and
lose the last draw of humanity.

it's really scary, and really tragic.

Like the past times,

As you all in madness sent the troops to invade Iraq,

As you all in madness elected Bush twice in a row,

You will elect Obama out of madness.

Usually a privilege evaporates when someone other than the privileged few obtains the information. For example, if a third person overhears a private conversation in a restaurant.

The people asserting the privilege have a duty to safeguard the privileged information. If they don't then the privilege is gone. Privileges are very narrowly construed.

I would argue that Palin, ignoring the secure state email system, and they using Yahoo - like a clown - for sensitive state business, and then having the yahoo server hacked and having the mail exposed, has just waived the privilege. The secure state server that Palin chose not to use was there for the express purpose of preventing this sort of incident.

With the privilege waived, the emails now stored on Palin's hard drive, or in other people's mail boxes, are now fair game. If these get deleted, then there is the possibility of an obstruction of justice charge.

And pathetic losers want to put this crazy wacko on the presidency, as granpa McCain is a sick old man, with many positives on cancer biopsies before, and won't live for long. This crazy religious fanatic will throw our country on a civil war. Or don't you know that Chavez is sending thousands of AK-47s and ammunition through the Everglades in Florida to arm MS-13 Latino gang groups all around the USA? MS-13 is also financed by Iran, and they have cells on every neighborhood of every medium or major American city. If this wacko gets elected and start her racist-fascist spread, we will have those Latino people shooting in Malls and streets, and then White people will react killing Latinos and our country will fall on a civil war, and "die from the inside out" as Bin Laden said on his last Radio broadcast through Al-Jazeera. This is his plan, to help Sarah Palin become president, so the HATE can get our country to a bloodbath and then we will die. As Abe Lincoln said: the only thing that can kill America, is America itself... I wish Ron Paul would come and save us from all this madness...

Then, as chairwoman of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, she fell into a public spat with fellow commissioner Randy Ruedrich, the state’s GOP chairman.

In 2003, she reported Ruedrich to Gov. Frank Murkowski’s administration, saying she suspected him of an ethics breach in conducting work for the state GOP on government time.

To obtain evidence of Ruedrich’s alleged malfeasance, Palin hacked into his computer, an ethical lapse in its own right. She resigned from the commission in January 2004.

This never would have happened if Palin hadn't been an idiot and broken the rules mandating the use of the secure mail system.

That's what the secure system is there for. Besides providing the people the ultimate oversight on their government.

Heck, even I have to use the secure system at my work. I would be fired for handling sensitive info on a Yahoo server.

Palin chose to conduct sensitive state business on an unsecure Yahoo account. This is what is known as stupidity on the hoof. And people want to see this ditz as President?

"To those of you Hillary supporters who refuse to vote for Obama and, instead, vote against everything you believe in (simply for spite), you will not get ANY Obama supporters in 2012.

Hillary won't even make it out of the primaries.

Al Gore will win the primary in 2012 if Obama is not elected in 08.

Hillary's chances of ever becoming president are 100% over. OVER.

She should stick to the Senate and do good work there.

I repeat: Hillary Clinton will NEVER be president of this nation. 100% of Obama supporters will see to it.

Yes, we will blame her if he loses.

Her lead fundraiser (a member of the DNC) just endorsed McCain.

Hillary supporters: it IS over for your candidate.

The best thing that you could do, if you want to actually redeem yourselves (since you were so disgusting during the primaries) is to get 100% behind Obama, and then hope Hillary gets appointed to the Supreme Court, which would be an ideal role for her.

Unless you get behind Obama 100%, we will never, EVER get behind Hillary for anything, including Dog Catcher.

So Palin uses a totally hackable Yahoo email account for state business to prevent it being subpoenaed, the address is published, some random Joe says to himself, "hmmm... I wonder why she was using a Yahoo account rather than the more-secure government email", hacks it and realizes that she was in-fact using it for government business. Hmmm... Except nothing published by itself appears to be revealing of anything very vile, so I'm starting to think this was a Republican act to try to say that her Stupidness' unsecured private email account has now been tampered with and can't be used as evidence. It's so predictable from a campaign that has lied so much. And to think that I actually considered voting for McCain. But then he chose Palin and I got smarter. I guess this Independent is voting for Obama.

Back in the Watergate days, Democrats hectored the nation into despising Nixon for his willingness to invade individuals' privacy for political reasons (eg. Daniel Ellsberg's shrink's papers). Now, we have Democrats hacking into politician's private communications.

REPUBLICANS HAVE A PLAN TO KILL ANY REMAINING HUMANS IN THE AFTERLIFE OR POLESHIFT

SO FOR YOUR OWN SAKE DON'T VOTE FOR A REPUBLICAN THIS NOVEMBER BECAUSE POLE SHIFT IS POSSIBLE DURING THE NEXT PRESIDENTS TENURE. AND HAVE YOU GUYS WONDER WHY REPUBLICANS BUSH AND NOW MCCAIN WANTING TO CONTINUE
AND EXPAND THE SPYING PROGRAM? TO SAVE US FROM TERRORITS?
I DIDN'T THINK SO BUT TO TAKE CONTROL IN THE AFTERLIFE AND LOOK TO REMOVE ANYONE THREATENING THEM WHICH INCLUDES THE U.S. CITIZENS.

REPUBLICANS BELIEVE THAT U.S. CITIZENS ARE THE TERRORISTS AND THAT THE TERRORISTS THE MAJORITY OF U.S. CITIZENS BELIEVE IN ARE ACTUALLY BENEFITING THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, THUS REPUBLICANS ARE A FRIEND TO TERRORISTS WHICH MEANS ONLY ONE THING. YOU ARE CONSIDERED A TERRORIST TO THEM BECAUSE THEY SAY YOU WOULD INTERFERE WITH THEM AFTER THE POLESHIFT REGARDLESS OF WHETHER YOU ARE A REPUBLICAN OR A DEMOCRAT MATTERS NOT. WHICH IS WHY THEY ARE CONTINUTING TO EXPAND THE SPYING PROGRAM TO MAKE SURE THEY KEEP AN EYE ON ANY POTENTIAL THREATS ON U.S. SOIL WHICH INCLUDES THE U.S. CITIZENS. I'LL BET YOU ANYTHING THAT A REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED WHITE HOUSE OR CONGRESS DURING AND AFTER THE POLESHIFT ASSURES YOUR DEATH AND THESE COWARDS GOING TO THEIR BUNKERS WHILE ALL OF YOU SUFFER FROM STARVATION OR FROM DEHYDRATION. OBAMA DOESN'T EVEN KNOW THE COMING POLE SHIFT, HE JUST HEARD RUMORS AND I'M SURE THAT HE HAS NO PLANS TO BETTER HIMSELF AFTER THE POLE SHIFT BUT TO ONLY AID AND ASSIST THOSE IN NEED.

MCCAIN KNOWS OF THE COMING POLE SHIFT AND THIS MEANS TROUBLE. ITS FUNNY HOW SOME PEOPLE ARE VOTING FOR MCCAIN THIS NOVEMBER BUT THEN THEY INTEND YOUR DEATH AFTER THE POLE SHIFT FOR THOSE REMAINING THAT STILL SURVIVED.

To those of you Hillary supporters who refuse to vote for Obama and, instead, vote against everything you believe in (simply for spite), you will not get ANY Obama supporters in 2012.

Hillary won't even make it out of the primaries.

Al Gore will win the primary in 2012 if Obama is not elected in 08.

Hillary's chances of ever becoming president are 100% over. OVER.

She should stick to the Senate and do good work there.

I repeat: Hillary Clinton will NEVER be president of this nation. 100% of Obama supporters will see to it.

Yes, we will blame her if he loses.

Her lead fundraiser (a member of the DNC) just endorsed McCain.

Hillary supporters: it IS over for your candidate.

The best thing that you could do, if you want to actually redeem yourselves (since you were so disgusting during the primaries) is to get 100% behind Obama, and then hope Hillary gets appointed to the Supreme Court, which would be an ideal role for her.

Unless you get behind Obama 100%, we will never, EVER get behind Hillary for anything, including Dog Catcher.

Posted by: Anonymous | September 17, 2008 8:33 PM

you know what's sick?

Obama is a do nothing senator who missed more key votes in THREE YEARS than Clinton missed in 7 and McCain missed in TWENTY ONE. He voted "Present" because he couldn't pick yes or no over 150 times... and he supports measures that kill living, breathing babies OUTSIDE OF THE WOMB, after a botched abortion attempt. He has no accomplishments to speak of, not even his own supporters can mention any. They just keep saying...

Vote McCain get 4 more years of the same.

Well what is your guy going to do to make it better? This dude who lives in a million dollar mansion (which is funny since he never held a job in his life till he took office)... while his half brother lives in a shack in Kenya?

Yet the scary thing is people will vote for him, mostly african-americans soley because he's half black...

and those who would want to hang the people who would break into Obama's private records, are PRAISING those who would do that to Palin.

Unfortunately, doesn't seem they came up with anything juicy. And they don't realize how poorly actions like this reflect on their guy Obama. I know one Clinton supporter who wouldn't vote McCain till she heard about this earlier today!

So thanks Libscum! Whether you believe it or not, you're helping our cause!!!

Posted by: me | September 17, 2008 8:29 PM

I don't know if anyone already mentioned this, but hacked her yahoo email accounts? How very convenient. Considering there may well have been a subpoena issued for those accounts as a result of the Troopergate investigation and well now they could be claimed to be tainted. I'm not much for conspiracy theories but think about this one. Would it really be surprising at this point? Now that the McCain campaign have sent people to Alaska to handle this situation and all. Something by the way which doesn't set well with Alaskans.

Posted by: DikesforPalin | September 17, 2008 8:29 PM

While I don't believe in blaming the victim, I'm not so sure who's the victim here--may not be Palin. Isn't this the sort of thing her (and many another) campaign might do to gain sympathy for this candidate? As for Yahoo accounts, less said the better.

I could see where this would be a big deal if they hacked a government email server, but you surrender your right to private emails once you open up a free account with yahoo, google, etc. Try actually reading the privacy agreement when you sign up for free email.

From CNN:

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2008/09/17/mccain-camp-seeks-investigation-over-reported-e-mail-hack/


FBI Spokesman Eric Gonzalez in Anchorage, Alaska confirms to CNN an investigation is underway.

"We are aware of the allegations and we are coordinating with Secret Service as far as the allegation that someone has hacked into Governor Palin's personal e-mail account," he said. "We are going to be working a joint investigation with Secret Service on this."

Brian Hale, an FBI spokesman in Washington, also confirms the FBI has been contacted about the incident. Two federal law enforcement sources say the FBI and Secret Service would have concurrent jurisdiction normally on a matter such as this, but it remains to be seen if the Secret Service will take the lead on the investigation because Palin is a protectee.

Palin does not believe the right to privacy is a Constitutional right. Since the Constitution is the source of morality as derived from Christian principles (or so her fanatical bloodthirsters would have you believe), there can be nothing immoral or illegal about sharing all of her personal information with the people of the world.

Poetic justice never tasted so sweet.

Subject: Hello

Dearest Sarah:

VERY URGENT..PLZ
First, I must solicit your confidence in this transaction,
this is by virtue if its nature as being utterly
CONFIDENTIAL and TOP SECRET.
Though I know that a transaction of this
magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried,
but I am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the day.
I have decided to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction,
as i have been reliably informed of your discreteness
and ability in transactions of this nature.
I am a Branch Manager with UNION BANK OF NIGERIA PLC.
We had a foreign client Engr. Johnson Creek
who deposited a huge sum of money (US$45million) with our
Bank.Eventually,
this client was among the victims of EGYPTAIR BOEING 767 FLIGHT
NO.990 that crashed on the 31-10-1999 in U.S.A but,
since then we have not had any body coming for
the claims as the next of kin.and I have waited for3-4 years.
A sitaution I have monitored closely with my position
in the Bank.
Now, having monitored this deposit and managed
it over the years before his death,
and hence nobody has showed up as the next of kin for
the past four years plus,
I have removed the file to my private vault.
I now solicit for your assistance to present you as
the next of kin as every other arrangement has been
concluded by me and ,I am only waiting for a foreigner
to enable me move the fund to his account.And your percentage will be
30%, 10% will be incured to proccess every thing.
This does not have any risk attached to it as all the
internal documentations will be handled by me.
I therefore request you to confirm your interest
and I will furnish you with details.
Your interest will be negotiated before we commence the operation.
I look forward to hearing from you.
God bless you and your family.

Do you really want somebody who is a heartbeat away from being Commander in Chief to be such a naive on security matters? Conducting official state business on a Yahoo email account without paying any attention to protecting the password? Will she do any better with the codes for launching our ICBMs?

Posted by: gov.palin | September 17, 2008 8:24 PM

This is great. She used personal email to conduct FRAUD.

The official word on that is CALUMNY, fraud for the purpose of avoiding legal proceedings. The legal proceedings in this case being the legitimate review of a state officials conduct of her affairs by her and her supervisees. She also has her supervisees using personal email to conduct official business, also to commit fraud, by calumny, avoiding appropriate official legal procedure.

She is a small town criminal and a bully, and now on stage.

This is from the anonymous message board, purportedly posted by the person that hacked the account originally:

"this is all verifiable if some anal /b/tard wants to think Im a troll, and there isn’t any hard proof to the contrary, but anyone who had followed the thread from the beginning to the 404 will know I probably am not, the picture I posted this topic with is the same one as the original thread.
I read though the emails… ALL OF THEM… before I posted, and what I concluded was anticlimactic, there was nothing there, nothing incriminating, nothing that would derail her campaign as I had hoped, all I saw was personal stuff"

Isn't the only issue here the felony committed by the sleaze that broke into the account. Sounds like nothing to question on Palin's end. More lunatic behavior from Obama supporters. Again says volumes about the lack of Obama's sense of authority and command. He's preaching an elevated tone and his side hits new lows every day. Well, actually, just reaching the same low of the community organzier/governor, Christ/Pilate nonsense.

Vote for McCain so Hillary can run in 2012? You obviously care much more about your own misguided ideals than about the country.

So then I think I'll follow your line of zealotry, and if Obama doesn't win AND if Hillary runs again in 2012, I'll vote for the Republican running against her, just so she doesn't win.

Perfectly logical right?

Oh no... Wait. It isn't because I am not voting for my Jr High class President!

Hilary knows that, Barack knows that, and you can bet John McCain knows it and is trying to distort it.

Bloodhounds! Why wait for the facts to come out? She's certainly guilty of something, regardless of what the emails say. Where is the evidence that she disclosed any state secrets in this personal account? The only thing we know is that her personal email account was hacked by some reckless blood thirsty person out to destroy her. To compare this to the FBI, under congressional oversight, hacking emails or tapping phones of individuals who are KNOWN to have interection with KNOWN terrorists - that's absurd! The comparison exposes your utter inability to be impartial and fair.

In her acceptance speech, Sarah Palin approvingly quoted Westbrook Pegler, who among other things was a racist, an anti-semite and a fascist who advocated killing Robert F. Kennedy.

In Spanish, there is a phrase, "To s/he who understands, few words are needed."

Palin's literary choice speaks volumes about why her ignorance does not portend bliss for the American people and their ideals.

In this time of economic turndown, a moment when the search for scapegoats may be just around the corner, it might be wise to remember the words of author Sinclair Lewis:

“When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying the cross.”

Looks like McCain isn't the only one lacking in basic computer skills or knowledge.

Yahoo offers no guarantee that personal data will not be mishandled, lost or destroyed. It takes stupidity to leave yourself exposed the way Palin did.

Poor, Poor, Sara, she had her email account hack and it seems she has been doing state business on it.

Do the people that would want that in office have any clue how careless and cavalier that is, not to mention illegal?

Any Hillary supporter who votes McCain is an enormous hypocrite and is actually sacrificing Hillary's candidacy in 2012 as well. No war-time incumbent president has ever been voted out of office. Ever.

If McCain is elected and we are still at war in 4 years, not only have you managed to delay progress in this country by voting McCain, but you have also prevented Hillary from winning in 2012 as well.

Additionally, look at the policies. If any Hillary supporter can say that they honestly support the McCain plans then they were not a Hillary supporter in the first place, as she supports everything he stands against and vice versa.

Think logically, not vengefully.

I have to give credit to John McCain for being sneaky smart! Obama and Caroline Kennedy were out of their mind to never consider Hillary (whose fan based was STRONG, EAGER, and probably twice as energized as Obama's). No, they let personal prejudices get in the way, and chose the competent, nice, but BORING Joe Biden for VP. They deflated the excitement right out of the party! Outside of Obama's final speech, the best part of the Dem Convention were Hillary and Bill! Seeing the mistake, the increasingly cagey McCain turns the tables on them, and comes up with his own version of a female VP (and possibly President -- God help us!) -- a gun totin, self titled pitbull with lipstick, anti-choice, tough talking about absolutely nothing in reality, beauty queen! This made the media chose a new superstar to promote -- Sarah Palin. Dumb move, Obama! We needed the Dems to help save this mess, and Mr Obama and Ms Kennedy allow personal feelings to let the Bush weakened Repubs probably win the Presidency. Idiots.

Posted by: benighse | September 17, 2008 8:09 PM

I'm a little confused.

If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your Grandparents, you're "exotic, different."

Grow up in Alaska eating moose burgers, a quintessential American story.

If your name is Barack you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.

Name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, you're a maverick.

Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.

Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you're well grounded.

If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, and spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs committees, you don't have any real leadership experience.


If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you're qualified to become the country's second highest ranking executive and a heartbeat away from the presidency should a 72 year old man (who has had cancer 4 times) die.

If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you're not a real Christian.

If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you're a Christian.

If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.

If, while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your state's school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you're very responsible.

If your wife is a Harvard law graduate, who gave up a position in prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family's values don't represent America's.

If your husband is nicknamed "First Dude", no college education, who didn't register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.

OK, I get it now.

The comparisons to the Patriot Act and other laws is evidence that the liberal left still doesn't get it. This thread contains the higher percentage if ignorance and pure bias than I've seen in a while.

You can continue to repeat the usual Democrat mantra and lies, but it won't make it true. You have absolutely no evidence of misconduct on her part, but you're ignorant enough to buy it and repeat it. You are the reason I vote.. to cancel out the vote of criminals and the people who condone such acts.

I actually don't believe all Democrats represent this scum of the Earth. To say so would be disingenuous on my part. I know some Democrats that are quite honorable, and would not stand still for such criminal behavior.

My god, this country may even vote her into being one not statistically unusual adverse event to a 73-76 year old white male away from being one of the most powerful people on the planet. Oh hell, let's have some fun. Do you mean things could get worse than they are now. Cool. Well, she does believe in End of Days. I am starting to even become a believer.

I'm no Sarah Palin fan, and there certainly should be no government business in that yahoo account (whereas it sounds like there is, which is shocking). The stories that were published on this issue in the last several days (before the hacking) indicate clear evidence that the Governor used private e-mail addresses for business deliberately, to avoid the Freedom of Information Act. That is just shameful.

But none of that justifies what was done here. Publishing someone's personal e-mail, including revealing the addresses of many of their correspondents and young family members, is just plain wrong. Stepping back a further step, it was incredibly irresponsible for the news media to publish the address of the private yahoo e-mail account that allowed the hackers to do what they did. The Post and other news organizations should immediately establish clear guidance about publishing the private cell-phone and home numbers, and private e-mail addresses, of anybody in the news, whether it is a politician, a celebrity, or an average person. As readers, we don't need that private contact information and it is not fair to the person involved.

Being a Hillary supporter I'm voting McCain so Hillary can run in 2012\

Hillary supporters 18 Million of us. if you vote Obama and he wins Hillary cannot run in 2012, think about that.

Can one of the Palin haters posting here please cite a relevant Alaska statue or applicable ethical rule that would have rendered Governor Palin’s use of a private email account to correspond on official matters of Alaska government illegal or even “improper”.

Does every politician have to carry around two Blackberries, once for “official” communications, and another to send and receive messages from friends and family?

If so, please enlighten those of us who very much doubt that proposition with a citation to law.

Posted by: Stephen Gianelli | September 17, 2008 8:04 PM

Whoever hacked his account was wrong. Of course it is already being blamed on the Obama campaign with no evidence whatsoever. What I am seeing from these comments is taht without any evidence in any direction whatsoever is that people from both sides are providing backlash. Imagine the kind of firestorm that would happen if either side was found out to be responsible for this in any way. Do you people really believe that either campaign would be that stupid?
Eric. If that is the reason you would vote against everything Hilary stands for in order to elect John McCain you aren't much of a Hilary supporter.

It's cute to think it's a GOP ploy to get the emails destroyed (even I'm tempted to think that), but the emails aren't gone. Only access to them is. If authorities needed to get a subpoena to get the messages, Yahoo! would have them.

From: Moses Odiaka [mosesadiaha@go.com]
To: mosesadiaha@go.com
Subject: CONFIDENTIAL PROPOSAL

Loyal Vice-presidential candidate:

My name is Mr.Moses Odiaka.I work in the credit and accounts department of
Union Bank of NigeriaPlc,Lagos, Nigeria. I write you in respect of a
foreign customer with a Domicilliary account. His name is Engineer Manfred
Becker. He was among those who died in a plane crash here in Nigeria
during the reign of late General Sani Abacha.

Since the demise of this our customer, Engineer Manfred Becker, who was an
oil merchant/contractor, I have kept a close watch of the deposit records
and accounts and since then nobody has come to claim the money in this a/c
as next of kin to the late Engineer. He had only $18.5mllion in his a/c
and the a/c is coded. It is only an insider that could produce the code or
password of the deposit particulars. As it stands now,there is nobody in
that position to produce the needed information other than my very self
considering my position in the bank.

Based on the reason that nobody has come forward to claim the deposit as
next of kin, I hereby ask for your co operation in using your name as the
next of kin to the deceased to send these funds out to a foreign offshore
bank a/c for mutual sharing between myself and you. At this point I am the
only one with the information because I have removed the deposit file from
the safe.By so doing, what is required is to send an aplication laying
claims of the deposit on your name as next of kin to the late Engineer. I
will need your full name and address telephone/fax number,company or
residential, also your bank name and account,where the money will be
transfer into.

Finally i want you to understand that the request for a foreigner as the
next of kin is occassioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner
and for that reason alone a local cannot represent as next of kin. When
you contact me, then we shall discuss on how the money will be split
between us and others we shall also speak in details.I am currently in
europe for a six months course,you can reach me on this number for further
discussion 0031 623 866 723.Kindly send your reply to my private email
address stated below mosesodig1@zwallet.com or mosesodiaka1@yahoo.com

Trusting to hear from you,

I remain Respectfully yours,

Mr Moses Odiaka.

There are many problems with this:
1) it is very illegal.
2) nothing that comes out of this can be trusted as 'true' since hackers could add or delete as they choose.
3) should something come out of it, Gov. Palin has automatic cover and is, in fact, the victim.

If these hackers are Obamanics, they sure hurt his campaign.

Posted by: Buba | September 17, 2008 8:02 PM

Wow, it took her virtually no time at all to adapt to Republican national politrix. Hiding from subpeonas, using private email accounts to avoid government oversight of official business, stretching the truth in her campaign speeches. I can't believe people aren't concerned that this pattern mimics the recent trend in Republican tactics. The democrats may be losers, but I'd much rather be a loser than a fascist, lying, power mongering Republican. These people are out to dictate our country, prioritizing ideology above the interests of the nation.

Posted by: NotAfraidOfRobots | September 17, 2008 8:01 PM

Yeah, but 10 to 1 they're voting for Obama. Pray hard, pray very hard that they don't work for the Obama campaign when they're caught. No amount of back peddling by the WaPost will keep the lid on such a revelation.

This article states "...and use of the personal account for government business." Yet the article does not provide any evidence of that. All the article provides are subject/titles of email that could very well contain private communications, and not government business. I will wait for some evidence before making a judgment. As for as I am concerned, the Press is not protecting a source; but rather, protecting people that have broken the law.

Posted by: Anonymous_on_Anonymous | September 17, 2008 8:00 PM

Republicans are brilliant! They "hack" into Palin's account, triggering it to shutdown and erase the emails -- any bad publicity info instantly disappears! They also get to drum up some sympathy: "Oh, she's a victim." (Even though she should've never been using a private email account for public duties.) Republicans are masters of the game. You gotta give it to them. They found a way to get rid of any incriminating emails that Palin may have had in her account.

"Vote for Obama and you will have DESTROYED Hilary's chance at becoming President!!"

I was a Hillary supporter deeply turned off by the nastiness of Obama's supporters during the primaries. I liked John McCain as well, and easily could have voted for him if the election had been held before he selected Palin and subsequently turned into a Karl Rove robot.

To the above quote, I say, "so what!" What is more important - rescuing our country from the brink of disaster, or tempting disaster in the chance (not certainty) that a particular person may become a future president?

Hillary isn't the second coming (neither is Obama). We need a national correction NOW. We've needed it for several years - it is extreme folly to put it off.

That said, I'd think an ardent Hillary supporter could spell her name. Operation Chaos?

Posted by: hitpoints | September 17, 2008 8:00 PM

Oh yeah, the Philadelphia TV anchor's email was also on a Yahoo account. Hacking is hacking, no matter who the email provider is. Yahoo is not a "public" site, if it were there would not be passwords required to read your email. Learn something before you post stupid BS as facts.

I can only imagine the conspiracy theories that would be pounded all the way from here to Keith Olbermann's show if someone ha dhacked into Barack Obama's email and posted pictures of his daughters all over the Internet.

Palin is only good for one thing. Unfortunately, she left the oldest profession and is now in way over her head.

ROFL you guys make me laugh.

If a public servant is using e-mail, there is nothing wrong with that. Our government should be controlled by the people and all aspects of the public servants work should not be hidden (I mean that if they don't want them to use e-mail because they don't want the public to know) that is tyranny!

I can understand not using e-mail for tactical reasons, but BY GOD WE ARE AMERICA! not some communist country (I laugh at that too).

Nothing is wrong with a public servant using e-mail. Nothing should be hidden (I'm not saying someones should hack the accounts, I'm just stating this on a free country run by the people).

Oh no. She's part of the ELITE GOVERNING CLASS and subject to a special set of NON-LAWS.
1. She can ignore Subpoenas.
2. She can have retroactive laws passed to exonerate ANYTHING she does.
3. She is not subject to the RULE OF LAW.

5. Nothing you can do will stop her.

No, this has nothing to do with liberals, Obama, or Democrats. It's a bunch of kids with a lot of time on their hands (if you don't believe me, visit their home on 4chan.com).

While the hack is inexcusable, so is Palin's approach to official state business through email. When she contracted for the free Yahoo account, Palin gave up her privacy right to Yahoo. Free email accounts are not free because they want your communications as payment for the service. In more ways than one, this bimbo is a real dolt. How funny this will be if the hacker is a Yahoo employee.

First of all, the president and vice president are not allowed to use the internet or email during their time in office. President Bush, our favorite of all, has even said how much he looks forward to being out of office so he can use the internet again for email (since it has been 8 years since he last used it).

Second of all, Sarah Palin is the governor of a state that is our primary defense against Russia. I am pretty sure she has been entitled to confidential information considering her troops would be the first to respond if anything were to go down with Russia. If poeple who are uneducated think that she has not been entitled to very sensitive materials in the past they are living in a world of ignorance.

Maybe if she have cooperated like she said she would do, I would feel differently. The truth will indeed come out one way or another. We VOTERS do have the right to know as much as we can about her, if not,than we are NOT living in a democracy.

If the Post was truly interested in being “above board” here they wouldn’t have dumpster dived with the tabloids hoping to digging up more smut against a woman they clearly hate. Yet another reason not to buy a Washington Post subscription!

How do you make the jump from having a yahoo email account hacked means that republicans are careless?

In that same sense, hacking an email account means that democrats are criminals (well, actually, that's true, so nevermind).

OMG, James!

What are you trying to do here???

Are you trying to subvert the entire democratic process with a blatant attempt to introduce facts and logic????

You should be ashamed!

Bob From an Elite State:

Do you have a link / quote where Gov. Palin told the news media she DID NOT conduct state business on Yahoo?

Posted by: JakeD | September 17, 2008 7:46 PM

Typical of the libs. They'd throw an absolute fit over the invasion of privacy if this happened to Obama, a serial rapist, or even OJ. But it helps their agenda so they're all for it.

Posted by: Anonymous | September 17, 2008 7:46 PM

Why was she using an insecure Yahoo account for official business (read the article people)? Accountability? Like all those "lost" emails from the Whitehouse. Wake up people!

eric - glad to see you have your priorities straight. Screw the country and the people in it for four more years so a scenario that may or may not ever happen can play out. I'm glad you feel you can gamble our future on a long shot but most of us get that reality is now not four years from now. Hillary is off the table maybe you should swallow your misguided support and stay home come election day.

Posted by: sha | September 17, 2008 7:45 PM

Hey brilliant "Vote again Obama to save Hillary"...

Except for one thing..

If McCain wins.. Palin gets 8 years as VP, will have experience Hillary doesn't have..

So it will be a Hillary/Palin ticket.

And Hillary's 'ceiling breaking' won't be so trophy anymore..

Posted by: CT | September 17, 2008 7:45 PM

This is a repub play for sympathy on Poor Gov. Palin. The right really knows how to make someone look like the victim. eMAIL-GATE. I'm so sure.

Posted by: CY | September 17, 2008 7:45 PM

It is wrong and illegal!

Those email cannot be used as proof!

Dems are behind this!

I WONT VOTE FOR DIRTY DEMS!

SO DIRTY! SO LOW!

This was done by the kids on 4chan and they have been trying to get into her email for a few days apparently. Wikileaks supposedly has more that hasn't been released as well.

If nothing else the subjects of the emails will definitely get attention and yahoo will probably be subpoenaed. Even if she deleted the accounts and the script kiddies didn't get everything there will be backups.

Posted by: anonymous | September 17, 2008 7:45 PM

People need to stop linking "liberals" or "Democrats" to whoever did this. Just because some D-bags decide to hack into Sarah Palin's personal email account, that doesn't make the rest of us accomplices.

The guy who shot up that Unitarian Church not too long ago did so because he blamed "liberals" for all his problems. How would you conservatives and Republicans feel if I blamed all of you for that?

Posted by: ManUnitdFan | September 17, 2008 7:45 PM

come on people, if your company would start to audit your email activities at work, you would all be fired! everyone from the top use the internet and check their personal emails during work hours. alot of people also fwd chain emails and funny emails so please do not get overworked and start pointing fingers. we live in a very unethical society...our world is crumbling down around us, sarah palin is human and that is what i like about her.

Posted by: summer | September 17, 2008 7:45 PM

Maybe she can show the rest of the world how to be a complete bimbo once she gets into the white house.. Yahoo??? Personal??? people what world are you living in...?

Posted by: eric | September 17, 2008 7:45 PM

Clearly, hacking another's email account and reading the contents is criminal. Unless, you're the Bush administration, then it's the Patriot Act.

Posted by: Justice served cold | September 17, 2008 7:44 PM

Are these the same "personal rights, no wire tapping of terrorist suspects" democrats gloating and fantasizeing over this overtly illegal and immoral act?

Posted by: gcraig85@yahoo.com | September 17, 2008 7:44 PM

Of course, Stephen Gianelli and JakeD aren't troubled in the least by Palin's use of a PRIVATE account to conduct PUBLIC business.

Gee, I wonder why she would do that?? Duh - she obviously has something to hide, which is becoming a recurring theme.

Enough with the executive secrecy to hide official misconduct.

Considering that the primary focus of most hackers is booze and boobs, interest in national elections is a huge step up intellectually for most of them. They must have gotten some bad drugs!

I would be fired if I used my personal email account for business!!! But yes I'm a designer much more important than the Gov, of Alaska.... Vice President my a$$ this woman needs to go lose herself in alaska before this circus becomes even bigger and uglier.

Posted by: tmg | September 17, 2008 7:41 PM

Looks like the Democrats are REALLY, REALLY scared of Sarah.

The examples of "state business" are laughable.....and even MORE evidence that Obama is the WRONG man for the job. His true colors are showing (even more than before) and Americans see the truth....NOBAMA !

Posted by: JRDevo | September 17, 2008 7:41 PM

Slow down there.
Nothing in the emails we've seen, amounts to evidence that the yahoo stuff is anything but a personal email account.

So really, this only helps her case. Apparently she really didn't do anything improper. STOP HELPING THE REPUBLICANS.

Posted by: James McGill | September 17, 2008 7:41 PM

The more people pull stunts like this the more it makes me lean towards voting for MaCain/Palin out of protest. Perhaps the Military ought to give these idiots what they want. Bring all the troops home and refuse to fight for them anymore. Let's see if they have to guts to fo their own fighting.

YAHOO????? Wake up, America!

I love that all the GOPers are freaking out that cyber-hacking is a crime!

No CRAP!

The people who did this deserve a Congressional Medal of Honor. For pointing out how completely vulnerable we'd be under a McCain/Palin administration.

Posted by: Shawn from GA | September 17, 2008 7:39 PM

this disqualifies her from having a security clearance.

Posted by: jo | September 17, 2008 7:38 PM

She should have stayed in Alaska... She was never vetted, and she wont talk so the public is doing their own version and its going to get even uglier when the contents start to spill.

Bummer. I'm no Sarah Palin fan, but any dirt dug up is overshadowed by the fact that this is a gross (and highly illegal) violation of her privacy.

Posted by: ManUnitdFan | September 17, 2008 7:37 PM

This is clearly a criminal offense and anyone who was involved or anyone who publishes or uses the email to try to discredit Sarah Palin should be punished by imprisonment.

Posted by: thinker08 | September 17, 2008 7:37 PM

This is a shocking misuse of a public email system!

If I had done this at a goverment regulated company, the company would get in trouble, and I would be fired.

I truely fear for our security (physical and financial), if these careless Republicans keep the white house.

Posted by: Anonymous | September 17, 2008 7:36 PM

Sarah told the news media she DID NOT conduct state business on Yahoo or other private accounts.

She claimed she ONLY USED the official State of Alaska email account.

LIAR!!

Posted by: Bob From an Elite State | September 17, 2008 7:35 PM

Hackers also attacked RealPolitics.com over the weekend, diverting all connections to a Democratic Party/Obama site. RealPolitics, for those who don't know, is a non-partisan news service which does nothing more than provide links to articles and information from a wide range of sources from the left, right, and middle.

Posted by: observer | September 17, 2008 7:35 PM

I want to see what is in these emails.

Although it is clearly illegal and immoral to invade someones personal email in this way, if there is serious information turned up, it should be revealed to the public.

Consider the following analogy:
What if police performed an illegal search of Dick Cheney's house and they discover the ingredients to build a nuclear bomb. Although it was illegal to search the house in the first place, the information found is relevant to the public (for reasons of safety, among others). For one, its incredibly dangerous to have nuclear bomb making ingredients (and thus, again, in the interest of the public to know), and for two, the person's house who was searched is a public figure, making the unearthed information relevent to the public. Further, since Palin is in the process of being elected (unlike Cheney), the public has an even greater right to know.

This kind of rambling, but you get my point.

Posted by: Evan | September 17, 2008 7:34 PM

McCain is totally clueless about this.

Email?
Yahoo?
Huh?
Does this have anything to do with the surge?

Posted by: Bob From an Elite State | September 17, 2008 7:34 PM

it couldn't have been that hard.. i bet her password was something like "lipstickPitbullDeerHunter" or something

Posted by: ruddy | September 17, 2008 7:33 PM

Lost in this post is any sense of the serious nature of the computer and theft crimes involved, as well as the potential threat to the security of a vice presidential candidate and her family.

This is why the FBI has announced its joint criminal investigation of the hacking-theft with the Secret Service, and also why the perpetrators of this Watergate-style break-in are going to do prison time.

You can bet that the Obama campaign is also conducting its own investigation to assure itself that none of its own staff was involved.

Posted by: Stephen Gianelli | September 17, 2008 7:28 PM

Eric:

The incumbent does not "always" run -- LBJ being the most recent example.

Posted by: JakeD | September 17, 2008 7:25 PM

Vote for Obama and you will have DESTROYED Hilary's chance at becoming President!!

Consider this:
If you elect Obama for 2008 , Hillary CAN'T RUN IN 2012!! The incumbent always runs for their party in reelection.

Hillary will then be 69 when she gets a chance to run as democrat. Then people will call her old(like they do McCain who is 72) and she will NEVER become President.

Reagan was 69 when he got elected but he wasn't trying to break the glass ceiling at the same time.

So if you care at all about Hillary, you will VOTE AGAINST Obama this time around. Plus, you will break the glass ceiling and Hillary WILL BE THERE in 2012!!

Think about it!! It makes sense!!

If you support Hillary, YOU MUST VOTE AGAINST OBAMA!!!

Posted by: Eric | September 17, 2008 7:17 PM

Hopefully, the FBI and Secret Service get to the hackers.

Posted by: JakeD | September 17, 2008 7:05 PM
