Remarkable emails from Palin's staff
I finally got a chance to scan the 200-plus pages of email posted last night as part of a (quite thin) ethics complaint against Palin's staff, all of them emails among her government aides connected to the 2008 presidential campaign.
They're without a huge revelation, but do offer a glimpse at two things: How off-guard and outmatched her operation was by the sudden national scrutiny; and how little familiar they were with the views on social issues that were prominent on the campaign trail.
As I mentioned yesterday, Palin's press secretary was fuzzy on her position on her position on abortion. Another email demonstrates how little part of her public identity was her religion:
"What religion is the gov? Luthern, protestant, catholic, etc?" Palin's chief of staff, Mike Nizich, wrote another aide. . . .
