Todd and Sarah Palin have responded to the leak of Todd’s e-mail to Joe Miller yesterday, and it’s basically, “What? That wasn’t controversial. Lamestream media!” Earlier this afternoon, Todd sent a message to The Weekly Standard, saying his “wires got crossed” with Joe Miller (is that a sex thing?) and that “Joe hadn’t said anything like what I’d been told.” Except Joe Miller obviously did say something like what he’d been told, BECAUSE HE DIDN’T SAY HE WAS ENDORSING SARAH FOR PRESIDENT. The Palins want to say it’s a simple misunderstanding, so the lamestream media should simply follow along and do exactly what the Palins say. But more importantly, Todd Palin is mad at you, Wonketteers, for finding and posting his e-mail address.
Here’s the statement:
My family has worked hard in supporting Joe Miller, so when I heard he’d said something less than supportive of my wife’s efforts, I responded. But it turns out we’d gotten our wires crossed and Joe hadn’t said anything like what I’d been told. So there’s no story here except the fact that the press put our personal emails online again, and again couldn’t even be bothered to conceal our email addresses or take any steps to protect our privacy.
Well, the site that leaked the e-mail, The Mudflats, did try to conceal those personal e-mail addresses. But a Wonkette commenter discovered you could get them from the document anyway, and now Todd Palin’s e-mail address is on the Internet. The Mudflats then took down the document and put up a copy that was not text-based, but the damage was done. Now stop sending Todd Palin photos of your genitals and cats, Wonketteers. Todd Palin is obviously annoyed.
