… and smacks the ball so hard he split the stitches.

The same political faction which today is prancing around in full-throated fits of melodramatic hysteria and Victim mode (their absolute favorite state of being) over the sanctity of Sarah Palin’s privacy are the same ones who scoffed with indifference as it was revealed during the Bush era that the FBI systematically abused its Patriot Act powers to gather and store private information on thousands of innocent Americans; that Homeland Security officials illegally infiltrated and monitored peaceful, law-abiding left-wing groups devoted to peace activism, civil liberties and other political agendas disliked by the state; and that the telephone calls of journalists and lawyers have been illegally and repeatedly monitored.

  • I thought Joe hit it pretty hard when he said “why the fuck was the Governor using a free webmail service to conduct official business for the State of Alaska?”, but this is really good.

  • It’s bad enough that she was conducting state business on a non-government system (and thus non-secured, and not archived).

    It’s worse that she did it on a free webmail system. Hello, insecure! If you’re going to break the law and take open government from the People, at least do it right.

    Worst of all is the hypocrisy from the far right who are ranting and raving about Palin’s violated privacy, but think it’s just fine for our own government to do the same to all of us.

    Was Palin’s privacy violated? Yes. Did the hackers break the law? Yes. Does that excuse what Palin did? Absolutely not. And wingnuts who think the government should spy on us have no moral authority to be outraged about this.
