One of the biggest media failures in quite some time has been the spectacle of going through Sarah Palin's e-mails from her time as Governor of Alaska. The media was so overjoyed at what they perceived as an opportunity to find all kinds of juicy stories about corruption, incompetence, and so on, they dropped all pretense of being actual journalists, and begged readers to help them sort through the 24,000 some odd e-mails and reporting on "the dirt."
I haven't seen something blow up in someone's face this bad since Diane Oughton was making bombs for Obama's best buddy Bill Ayers!
Instead of finding the incompetent boob our corrupt media had been telling their readers about for years, those going through Governor Palin's e-mails found a solid CEO who worked long hours doing the people's business. They found a Governor who was incredibly intelligent, and unlike our current president, almost fanatical about making sure there was transparency in her government.
The democrats, their corrupt media partners, and the GOP elites have assured us that Sarah Palin is stupid to the point of barely being able to tie her own shoe. They've also told us for years that her well written newspaper op-eds, and Facebook notes MUST have been written by someone else. So too her two NY Times best selling books.
Well, thanks to the media's zeal, yet another lie about Sarah Palin has been shot down.
From the NY Daily News:
It turns out Palin's writing skills are still better than most educated Americans. Global Language Monitor gave Palin's emails a score of 8.2, which actually exceeds that of most chief execs. "She's very concise. She gives clear orders. Her sentences and punctuations are logical," said Paul Payack of GLS. "She has much more of a disciplined mind than she's given credit for."
John Katzman, CEO of another company, 2tor, gave Palin a score of 8.5. He said the potential presidential candidate's emails scored higher than his own, when based on the widely-used Flesch-Kincaid readability test.
But what do the scores actually mean? Payack offered Abraham Lincoln's "Gettyburg Address" and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech as points of comparison. They earned scores of 9.1 and 8.8, respectively.
Hmm, being compared to fellow Republicans Abraham Lincoln and Dr Martin Luther King. That's pretty heady stuff.
You may have noticed the media's interest in Governor Palin's e-mails died almost as quickly as it was born. Now you know why. It's hard to sell someone as corrupt, inept, and stupid when every piece of evidence shows that not to be true..
One thing about it, when she takes office in 2013, President Sarah Palin will be the most vetted President in our nation's history. The exact opposite of Barack Obama!
