Is this document about:
- A governor doing her job
- Trying to get the facts straight before giving her State of the State address to the Alaska legislature
- Doing the incredibly dull stuff that is part of the job
Even before she became prominent in national politics, Sarah Palin defended herself against even the slightest criticism during her tenure as Alaska governor, newly released correspondence shows.
...Wow! Can you imagine a politician doing these things? Astonishing. Next, they are going to report that Governor Palin's emails reveal that...she is a woman!
What emerges repeatedly in the materials, however, are episodes in which the governor pushed her staff to demand corrections from reporters and fretted that her emails were being leaked.
The emails showed that Palin and her staff sought to use policy victories to burnish her political image.
