Exactly. Child's play. My security is better than that, and I'm the one with 2 jobs and no health insurance

I find it odd that no McCain supporter has criticized her for being your typical corrupt politician...

The question you Palin defenders are avoiding (naturally) is, Was it right and all right for her to be conducting government business on an unofficial public website, away from "prying eyes"?

It's a yes or no question.

First of all, I haven't "defended Palin." I'm neutral on the subject. I've been expressing my outrage against hackers AND the fact that y'all are actually DEFENDING a hacker. That is beyond ridiculous. If Obama was hacked, I'd be equally outraged.

But while y'all are calling her "corrupt" and such, it's been clear from the reports I've seen that there was nothing of substance in that email account. It was clearly for personal communication and not substantive "government business."

So how do you feel about her drunk-drivin' husband being cc'd on her gov't business emails? No biggie?

It's a yes or no question.

Should be a poll, eh?
I don't think it's as big a deal as you are trying to make it. Greta last night said she has 3 cell phones, 1 for business, 1 for personal and 1 for sometbing else, but that sometimes the wrong one is used - i.e., personal phone for business or vice versa. She said it's definitely nothing she'd get FIRED over. Not a big deal but you guys are looking for ANYTHING to diss Palin about BECAUSE YOU ARE AFRAID BECAUSE OF HER OBAMA IS GOING TO LOSE. And you are probably right. But by keeping her in the headlines you are hurting your case, not helping it.

I'm gonna suggest to Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Glenn Beck and others that tbey make sure everyone hears about this young Democratic kid hacking Sarah Palin's personal email. Let's see what the public thinks about it and see if it helps Obama.

Wrong.
There was a great deal of 'substance' in that email account. No, there wasn't anything in there of a 'smoking gun' nature, but it was still government business. Government business that could never be admissable in a court of law. That's called circumventing the law, and as an adult and an elected official, I say that is corrupt and underhanded.
Of course, if it had been Obama, I'm sure Major Minor and company on this board would claim that his 'communist, muslim messages' had been deleted....

So, it's okay with you if government officials conduct their official business on Yahoo.

Wow....

no wonder.....
