Palin adviser: Read the emails

(CNN) - An adviser for Sarah Palin encouraged "everyone" to read the emails the state of Alaska released Friday.

"The thousands upon thousands of emails released today show a very engaged Governor Sarah Palin being the CEO of her state," Sarah PAC Treasurer Tim Crawford said in a statement. "The emails detail a Governor hard at work. Everyone should read them."

State officials released 24,000 pages of emails Friday from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's administration. The material includes emails from her official and private accounts dealing with state business.

    So, will CNN and other news station do the same thing for Obama and all Washington politicians? Why is CNN didn't ask for Obama, McCain and Biden e-mails when they run for office? I will salute to CNN and the othe news agency if they will do the same scrutiny to Bill Cllinton, Hillary, Obama, McClain, Biden all all politician's e-mail and not just Sarah Palin.

    Where was the media when it came to vetting Barack Obama ???
    The WITCH HUNT launched by the biased, prejudiced media says much more about them, than it does about Sarah Palin. What a disgusting smear campaign by the liberals.
    If they had put a fraction of that much investigation into the campaign of Obama, he would never have been elected, and America wouldn't be circling the bowl today.

    I wish everyone had been as eager to read OBAMACARE before they passed it into law.

    Hey CNN - why not dig into the latest news on "As lawmakers scramble to cut a budget deal and avoid defaulting on U.S. debt, the head of a top Chinese rating agency claims it's too late. " than on Sarah Palin?

    You are fading away from a real news agency – you become a Hollywood organization which spreads and ignites hatred and jealousy towards other people. Leave this Ms. Palin. You are more bigger news to do!

    "The emails detail a Governor hard at work." Then she quit. Go figure.

    I will like to read them, but Silly Sarah can't put a coherent sentence together. At least she knows how to operate a keyboard. I know that had to be a stretch from writing in crayon.

    Why bother? She scrubbed them clean before handing them over on a CD.

    ["The emails detail a Governor hard at work. Everyone should read them."]

    ACTUALLY – "The emails detail a Governor's (husband) at work. Everyone should (keep that in mind before they) read them."

    Sure let's read a a bunch of emails that are scrubbed so much that you could perform a heart surgery on them. We dont care about the emials, what we do care about is that some of you morons want this woman to run a country snd she barely knows the history of the United States, what we have a problem with is she will get us all killed and she would love nothing more to turn back the clock to a time where "all men were not viewed as equal".

    A governor hard at work? Traveling the US campaigning for VP, then quitting? Sounds like hard work to me.

    Mr. Crawford, I don't usually like to root for people being out of work, but when this dim bulb fades into her well deserved oblivion and you have no funds to manage, this country will be in a lot better place.

    Are they written in English or 'Palinese'?

    Except they redacted all kinds of stuff from the ones released and held back several thousand pages under a claim of confidentiality. The suit to enforce the FOIA request should be fun.

    I don't want to read them ,because Saran Palin Is a IDIOT. And In no way Is she QUALIFIED to be President. Heck she not even Qualified to be dog catcher, because the dogs would out smart her.

    Sorry don't want to hear anything this idiot has to say whether it be on TV, Debate, Radio, In Person or in Emails......if it shows what a good job she was doing as Govenor of her State of Alaska then WHY did she up and QUIT and Walk out on her beloved State of Alaska and leave the people who voted for her up up a "CHIT CREEK"......everyone should boycott AMC for showing her movie....since when did Theaters get into the Political ring.....if this BIMBO wants to campaign she should do it the same way every other canditate does it by hitting the road and campaigning in person........What the Republicans and Tea Party hasn't figured out is that even though they may elected this woman in their Primary to run against Obama she will never beat Obama.......I will vote for Obama over her even if the economy is still in the tank, even if the employment is up to 20%, even if the debt reaches Trillions more....before I would vote for this woman who knows nothing about running her own home much less this country.......

    Why? We already know she is a quitter and a liar and a moron and an idiot. Nothing will change my mind. However, I am sure that Fox News, the media arm of the GOP, will make a lot out of nothing and she will become the darling of the GOP for the nomination for president. Good luck with that one repukelican losers.

    Why, you went through them and only turned in the ones that were safe. Everyone knows this already so why waste our time. It took you almost three years to turn them over. Plenty of time to clean them. We read the article about their release. I do have one question. Why was Todd Palin included on Government business?

    I would never vote for Palin. I am a Registered Republican in Oklahoma and Plan to vote for Obama in 2012, my party has let me down. And if they even considered Palin I would dump them and become a Democrat.
