Todd Palin Attacks Joe Miller In Private Email

Jeanne Devon of had written a very interesting article on The Huffington Post detailing Todd Palin's anger with Joe Miller, the Alaskan senate candidate endorsed by his wife, in which Mr. Palin was upset that Miller couldn't answer a question on Fox News as to whether or not Sarah was qualified to be president.
In the email Todd Palin went on to ask, "Joe, please explain how this endorsement stuff works, is it to be completely one sided." The specific use of the word "endorsement" and the Palins' anger at the endorsement being "one-sided" appears to be strong evidence that the Palins were, in fact, not only expecting a quid pro quo endorsement from Miller for a yet-to-be-announced Palin presidential run, but were furious that they didn't get it.

The email continues, "Sarah spent all morning working on a Face book post for Joe, she won't use it, not now. Put yourself in her shoe's Joe for one day." Though the exact contents of the Facebook post and the previously mentioned letter are not clear, it is obvious that the Palins did not, at the time of the email, intend to put any more political muscle behind Miller's candidacy, and were specifically withholding support they had intended to give in retribution for Miller's failure to support Palin's presidential aspirations.

Miller reacted three days later when he forwarded the email he'd received from Todd Palin, and added a message of his own. Miller's email was sent to his spokesman Randy DeSoto, campaign manager Robert Campbell, political advisor Walter Campbell, and a staffer. Miller stated that he had just found the email from Palin in his inbox, and noted, "This is what we're dealing with. Note the date and the complete misconstruction of what I said. Holy cow."
Devon goes on to point out Todd's involvement in his wifes politics in the past.  I find it interesting that Todd would take it upon himself to contact SarahPAC's treasurer to block any kind of further support for Miller's candidacy.  I find this interseting because it shows how idiotic and infantile the Palins truly are - just look at Miller's response to Todd's email.  Imagine what the Palins would have been like when Sarah actually held a government position - it makes everything else, from Troopergate to Levi Johnston's comments, that much more believable

  1. You can actually see ALL the blacked out email addresses!

    Well, before Mudflats apparently took the link down, Mudflats showed the email as a PDF:

    And depending on what you use to view PDF documents, you can view the addresses just by hovering your cursor over it,
    ... OR select "Click to view as document"
    ... OR copying it as is, and then pasting it into an MS Word document.

    I guess this would be FOI in action.
