Sarah Palin e-mails released to throng of waiting reporters

By James Oliphant

Thousands of records detailing Sarah Palin’s tenure as governor of Alaska were released Friday to a waiting throng of journalists at a state office building in the capital of Juneau.

Is it just me, or does this sound like a fishing expedition, or even a witch hunt? Why are all these e-mails being released, and why now? So reporters can scour them for any infraction, real or imagined? Has she committed some crime? And are all the other potential presidential candidates, including Barack Obama, going to be receiving the same treatment?

I have serious reservations about Sarah Palin as a candidate, but this kind of singling her out for “special treatment” makes me more likely to vote for her, not less.
