By now you have heard that Palin’s email account at yahoo has been hacked by those lovable scamps at 4chan. Two quick things:
1.) This merely reinforces how reckless and careless this woman is, and how reckless and careless this choice is. John McCain chose a woman so stupid she runs government business through yahoo.
2.) This response from Malkin is awesome:
“Where are the privacy absolutists now?”
What is the big deal, Michelle? If you haven’t done anything wrong, you don’t have anything to hide, AMIRITE?
Seriously. I would never publish her private emails, but listening to Malkin kvetch about privacy is, after years of listening to her cheerlead the surveillance state, how do I put this… A BIT FUCKING RICH.

The dumbest thing about this, dumber even than Palin conducting official business on an unsecure email account, is that a world of hurt is going to come down on the jackasses who did this:
FBI Spokesman Eric Gonzalez in Anchorage, Alaska confirms to CNN an investigation is underway.
“We are aware of the allegations and we are coordinating with Secret Service as far as the allegation that someone has hacked into Governor Palin’s personal e-mail account,” he said. “We are going to be working a joint investigation with Secret Service on this.”
Brian Hale, an FBI spokesman in Washington, also confirms the FBI has been contacted about the incident. Two federal law enforcement sources say the FBI and Secret Service would have concurrent jurisdiction normally on a matter such as this, but it remains to be seen if the Secret Service will take the lead on the investigation because Palin is a protectee.
If what I know about the morons at 4chan is accurate, their forte is porn, pedophilia, racism, gaming, and hacking. You would think they would not want to bring attention to themselves.
*** Update #2 ***
Since there appears to be some confusion, “lovable scamps” was sarcasm. Kinda why the whole post was filed under assholes. There really is no love here for folks hacking into people’s personal email.
