In E-mails, Politics Still Looks Like High School

Hanna , we were clearly on the same snarky wavelength this morning. I enjoyed Todd Palin's deathless, if slightly incoherent prose so much that I think we need to actually share his words, which I read on Gawker over breakfast:

Sarah put her ass on the line for Joe and yet he can't answer a simple question " Is Sarah Palin Qualified to be President". I DON'T KNOW IF SHE IS.


Joe, please explain how this endorsement stuff works, is it to be completely one sided.

Sarah spent all morning working on a Face book post for Joe, she won't use it, not now.

Put yourself in her shoe's Joe for one day.

Should we debate which brought on the bigger fit of giggles: the idea of Sarah Palin laboring for hours over her "Face book post," Todd's manly Alaskan pique, or the thought of having a sit down with him to explain how this punctuation thing works? It would be about as substantive as anything we've heard from Ms. Palin herself in months.
