I'll go out on a limb and suggest this person was a Demmocrat. Just a hunch.
A person taking credit for hacking into Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's personal Yahoo account claims to have read the Republican vice-presidential candidate's e-mails to find something that "would derail her campaign" after using publicly available biographical data to reset her password, according to a posting on the Internet.Put nothing past the dirty trick Democrats. When you have their presidential nominee openly slandering citizens, it's no stretch to think they wouldn't resort to criminal tactics to get what they want.
"There was nothing there, nothing incriminating — all I saw was personal stuff, some clerical stuff from when she was governor," the person wrote in a message on 4chan.org that was later erased, according to Wired.com, which copied the account on its Web site.
Most of the media seems curiously disinterested in pursuing this case. Had Barack Obama's email been hacked it would be 24/7 coverage on every network, there would be thousands of reporters hunting down the perpetrator and the GOP would be blamed even in the absence of evidence.
But when it's a Republican being violated, hey, that's fine.
Meanwhile, the Tennessee Democrat whose son is the focus of the investigation is playing dumb.
When asked whether his son is involved in the case in any way, Mr. Kernell said: "I can't talk about my son. I can just tell you no one has contacted him or I about this."
The breach came to light Wednesday after several screen shots revealing e-mails and personal photos from Mrs. Palin's account were found circulating on the Web. The FBI and the U.S. Secret Service are investigating.
The McCain campaign verified the hack on Wednesday, calling it a "shocking invasion of the governor's privacy and a violation of the law."
