Palin’s Hacked Yahoo! Account

The question just begs to be asked:  Do Republicans/Conservatives really NOT understand the concept of irony, or does chronic hypocrisy just lead to a form of blindness?  Just watch the following two short segments from Messrs. O’Reilly and Hannity, and if you’re not laughing too hard, come on back for further detail.

Weren’t these the same bozos who were trying to blow off the whole (illegal) wiretapping, in violation of FISA laws, as much ado about nothing?  Wasn’t THAT all just a bunch of L-L-L-Liberal blathering?  And, wasn’t the argument at the time: “If you’re not doing anything wrong, then you have nothing to worry about.”?  Hmmm!  Now, I generally don’t watch these clowns all that often, and looking at Karl Rove (aka Baby Huey) just makes me physically ill, but I’d be willing to bet that these guys – just like some of my more conservative friends/relatives/coworkers – tried to argue that: the U.S. Constitution contains no express right to privacy.  So, this being the case, what is the major difference between some pencil-necked Federal geek listening into your phone calls or intercepting/reading your e-mails, under that very broad guise of “National Security”, and some pimply faced dweeb – probably living in his mom’s basement – hacking into someones Yahoo! e-mail account?  If Sarah Palin didn’t do anything wrong . . . then she has nothing to worry about.  Now, does she?  Are they afraid that there could be something damning in her e-mails?  Troopergate bombshells?  A possible list of books she was looking to ban?  Correspondences with some Alaska Secessionists?  Or, perhaps some kind of Rovian strategy e-mails, detailing how EVERYTHING in her life fit into their plan to win over the evangelical Christian fundamentalists, who had had strong reservations as to whether John McCain sufficiently met their requirements.  Hmmm! 

Now, check out the actual Gawker site, who had the chops to “publish” what this “anonymous” hacker came up with.  Scan down and read some of the comments that these Palin backers wrote in:


Wow!  What a classy bunch.  You know, for the party that believes in “family values” and the sanctity of man-woman relationships, they certainly have a strange fixation on a certain part of the human anatomy, the acts of sodomy, and issues of violence.  I’m sure that the Gawker people cherry-picked many/most of these comments, but still . . .  C’mon!



When they can’t dictate the terms they certainly DO seem to get their panties all in a twist, don’t they?  Isn’t all this faux OUTRAGE just peachy?
