Yep, they pinned the tail right back on ’er

Here’s the typo of the day…

Personally, I have not followed the Sarah Palin emails nonstory, but my attention was grabbed when I saw the blurb under the headline on this Slate story:

Pro-Palin Vandals Hack Twitter in Revenge for Email Release

Crivella West faces retailation for uploading Palin’s emails electronically.

Yep, that’s what they did to ol’ Crivella West — they “retailated” her… pinned the tail right back on her.

Oh, wait… Crivella West is not a person. I had thought that maybe it was Cruella De Vil’s cousin, but turns out it’s an it, not a she. Apparently, it’s the “company that helped upload thousands of Sarah Palin’s emails to the Internet.” In case you care.

OK, so it’s not as funny that way. But I still smiled at it.

    I could understand the attackers’ motive better if the documents had been leaked, rather than already released in hard copy. Are these hackers acting in the belief that the Alaskan Gov. did release them in paper form to make them harder to sort and examine, rather than, as claimed, because they didn’t have the means to redact them before electronic release? If not, what other reason would they have. I’m not sure Palin worshippers think any better than their goddess (the Ride of Paul Revere revisionist).

    “I don’t know. I’m still trying to understand why anyone would have the slightest interest in Sarah Palin’s emails…”

    Wolfram Alpha needs something to test against.

    I read that this release was in response to a FOIA request made when she became VP candidate almost two years ago.

    The release of hard copy–not easily searched, is akin to Nikki Haley’s *display* of her emails and tax returns….
