Will Gawker.com be charged for publishing Palin’s emails
The jolly folks at Gawker.com are in deep shit. They’re in the news today for publishing emails and info from the email account of Sarah Palin. They attribute it to a group called Anonymous but a source told IUC that Gawker.com will be heavily investigated for their role by authorities. Wouldn’t it have been cool if Gawker had gotten hold of Osama Bin Laden’s email account and hacked into it. They could have been heros. Instead they pick on the vulnerable Governor of Alaska.
They also published a list of Palin’s email contacts. Here’s a few email addresses complimentary of IUC for Nick Denton et al to use to get out of this mess – on the house courtesy of IUC:

Alan Dershowitz (famed attorney) dersh@law.harvard.edu
The Alaskan Bootlegger’s Bible (Denton and his staff will need some good moonshine after they pay all those legal fees) scottie@happymountain.net
The Honorable William J. Clinton (maybe he can pull a few strings to help Gawker cause he browses the site every morning)

    What’s the difference between a hockey mom and a bulldog? Bulldogs don’t use email. Sadly enough, Gawker.com jumped on the Palin-bash a few hockey-mom jokes too late. While the rest of the country was doing a fantastic job throwing punches at the beauty queen-turned-politician, the infamous website may have taken the fun and games one step too far by publishing screen shots of the VP candidate’s personal emails on their website. While Gawker is on the hot seat for invasion of privacy, Palin may end up taking it from behind for using her personal yahoo account for official government business. How will this affect the polls in November? It’s too soon to tell…

    Why is everyone on a witch hunt for Sarah Palin? Did anyone hack in to Joe Biden’s email account? Heck no, there wouldn’t be anything interesting there, even if he did use it. And does anyone recognize that hacking in to email is a FEDERAL offense?

    Even with the negative PR surrounding Palin, she’s getting airtime and attention. DO we know anything about Biden? Nope. He’s been a player in DC for 30 years or so, so he must have a record of some sort. Why aren’t people jumping all over him? Oh, right, he’s only the #2 spot, unimportant. If he had long hair and a cuter body, maybe people would pay more attention to him.
