Sarah Palin’s released e-mails vs. Wikileaks releases. A comparison.

A long time ago, after Obama had won the election there arose a rumor among the left leaning bloggers. It rose to a hysterical pace and media got involved. Sarah Palin had breast implants! Even Greta van Susteren asked her to her face whether that was so. So I penned this Limerick:

A Sarah Palin limerick on unfounded rumors.

Sarah Palin was facing the Great Inquisition

 by left-leaning bloggers, they reached no decision,

on things of great weight,

like shape, size and height.

As for perfect figure: There was no incision.


Nobody thought much of that (not even I) and it languished in blog-land. But then came the release of her 30000+ e-mails and the public was invited to crowd-source the document dump. The excitement was enormous. I remember Andrea Mitchell with bated breath asking one after another “Found anything yet” Every time the answer was no, not yet, only that she was a hard working governor with many cute Palinisms in otherwise terse, effective communications. One could see the disappointment in Andrea’s face. “Keep trying’ she breathed, but no avail. They found nothing.  Out of nowhere my little Limerick had 1800+ hits that day.

Contrast that with the total media apathy about the Wikileaks daily releases. There are one bombshell revelation after another, but Washington Post for example fails to notice.

Question: Why is presidential candidate Hillary Clinton now so much less a person of interest than was then private citizen Sarah Palin?
