Sarah Palin’s emails during her time as governor were released, and the media is acting like it’s a veritable Christmas-sized destroy Palin present. Heck, Hot Air has an MSM news video of a palette of emails being loaded into a truck. They thought it was newsworthy enough to film a palette of paper.
As for the redactions, they likely have an actual purpose. They might have been removing Personally Identifiable Information. You can’t give that to just anyone, so it gets redacted. And emails tend to contain things like the senders’ and recipients’ email addresses, which are Personally Indentifiable Information.
So it’s time to treat this breaking story as what it is: laughingstock.
Breaking News: Document Dump Contains Paper
Juneau, Alaska – This just in: A palette of Sarah Palin’s emails sent and received during the time she was governer has just been rolled out on a palette stacked with paper.
We believe each of these individual sheets is approximately 8 1/2 by 11 inches and bleached white. It’s possible that some of them might also be 8 1/2 by 14 inches rectangular. When asked about it, the government worker that was pushing the palette confirmed that yes, it was indeed stacked with paper and furthermore, that paper might have letterhead on it.
We have yet to confirm how the emails have made their way onto paper, but there’s far too much of the stuff for government work. We don’t know how much greenhouse gas Sarah Palin created when she wrote the email or how many of them she had business writing. We can’t confirm if there’s an investigation ongoing to determine if she wrote too much email, not enough, and whether or not the document dump she didn’t request used more government resources than allotted.
If nothing else, the letterhead printed on the paper containing her emails which were released, though not necessarily by Palin’s request, cost the state of Alaska an indeterminate amount of money. When asked how much the custom government letterhead in this email dump cost the taxpayers of Alaska, the government worker pushing the cart declined to respond after looking at us like we were mad.
In other news, the national deficit…wait, we’ve just been informed that yes, Palin’s actual emails have been printed on paper. Here’s the footage once again of the palette of emails being loaded into a truck. We have confirmed that, and we’ll report reading some of that paper as it happens.
Unless the paper has been redacted for unknown reasons they won’t tell us and may or may not have anything to do with Sarah Palin.
This stuff’s just getting tough to parody
