How 'about not. Despite your political affiliation (and I speak to a general audience), it is absolutely disgusting for any of us to revel in the
fact that someone's privacy was deliberately invaded in order to discredit them. As much as I dislike Obama, I would have the same feelings if this
happened to him.
How about the loss of security with regards to the Patriot Act. Weren't we all screaming about that (and still are)? But, because it was hacked,
it's o.k. to see whatever "dirt" there is? Coverup? Hardly. Protecting one's privacy? Absolutely. I'd do the same thing if it were me and I was a
high profile individual.
There has to be some boundry that shouldn't be crossed. But, now that this has happened, it will become media fodder for the remainder of the
week/weekend, especially if any "dirt" is mysteriously leaked.
Would any one of us be willing to let our privacy be so blatently invaded and published and then not try to stop it? But because she's running for
VP, this makes her a fair target?
It would be wise of Obama's campaign to come out very soon and denounce this and state that this should have no bearing on the individual.
For heaven's sakes, how many emails has the White House 'lost' in the Bush administration? You want a coverup, how about looking there.
Again, this is a disgusting act of privacy invasion and Governor Palin has every right to delete, sue to have web site posts removed, sue the
individual's responsible, etc.. The fact is that this is criminal and there should be strong, very strong repercusions for this act. And to
reiterate, in case you didn't catch it earlier, I would ask for the same to be done if it were Obama's email that were hacked as well.
