But I have yet to see one article on any of the mainstream media websites condemn this action or mention the severity of the crime. All I’ve seen is them feasting on the scraps that came out of it. The screenshots are brazenly posted and there is talk of how Palin conducted government business on private email accounts. Once again, the media is trying to sniff out a Palin scandal that doesn’t exist, now that “Troopergate” has proven to be a boring non-issue. It’s difficult for me to once again sum up my level of disgust with the liberal treatment of Sarah Palin. They will literally do and say anything to discredit and destroy her, which is a testament to how much of a threat she is to them. Again and again, they step over the line and embarrass themselves, but they can’t seem to help themselves. Because they HATE her. They absolutely hate her. They are so consumed with their hatred of her that they can’t comprehend how much they are harming their own cause. Incidents like these just generate even more sympathy for Governor Palin and bring her right back into the spotlight as a victim, just when her popularity had seemingly peaked.
What really confounds me is that on message boards and even in news articles people are blaming McCain for making this an issue and distracting voters from real problems in our country. Seriously? It’s McCain’s fault that this happened and that it is (rightly so) a news story? I’ve included a sampling of some of the posts I’ve seen on the Christian Science Monitor website pertaining to this below to give you an idea of just how absolutely loony and hateful some of these liberals are:

I’m tired of the devastaing issues we face as a nation getting hijacked over nonsense.
Palin is barely on the scene, and there is the refusal to cooperate with an investigation that was voted on, by a Republicon majority in Alaska’s gov’t, well before McCain’s “choice.”
Now tell me: WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT THE STATE OF THE UNION?
I AM SICK AND TIRED OF GETTING A RED HERRING SHOVED IN MY FACE…….MCCAIN CAMPAIGN, DEAL IN The issues that are unraveling our country.

She’s so dirty. Everything about her shouts revival of the reviled administration sitting in the White House. How can this go and on and on and on and on and on without ANY accountability?
If Palin used Yahoo mail for official state business she is indeed a big idiot. What would she follow this up with? Leaving the missile launch codes on a rock in Afghanistan?
There seems to be no concern in the media over the fact that a crime was committed, and I've certainly heard nothing from the ACLU. I imagine when they do speak up it will be to blame the Bush administration for setting this trend with the PATRIOT Act. The bottom line is that the Left has thrown everything they can at this poor woman and not apologized for it, having now added federal crime to their toolkit, and nothing has done her in.
