We certainly hope you have better/less creepy things to do today than scour through the emails Sarah Palin sent and received while governor of Alaska. FishbowlNY suggests finally figuring out the name of “the other guy” in Wham! or baking us some cookies. If those ideas don’t entice you like Palin’s correspondence, you should head to The Huffington Post, because it’s providing live updates on the emails right now.
Here’s our favorite so far:
On Feb. 19, 2007, deputy legislative director Chris Clark recommended to Palin that she meet Pete Rouse, ‘who’s now chief of staff for some guy named Barack Obama,’ when she was in Washington, D.C. on an upcoming trip.
Palin’s reply: ‘I’m game to meet him.’
It’s worth noting that Obama announced he was running for president on Feb. 10 – so this email was either incredibly close-minded, or sarcastic.
Who knows what the email meant, what really matters is that everyone is being incredibly weird about searching them. If you’re okay with that, knock yourself out and head to the HuffPo’s live-blog.
