Complaints, prayers and poems in the 13,000 e-mails from Sarah Palin

Despite not hold any elected office or aspire to do so officially, Sarah Palin is undoubtedly the U.S. policy that arouses interest. At least among the press, which has welcomed the publication furor on Friday of 24,000 pages with their e-mails. Some media, like The New York Times and The Washington Post, have even sent teams of reporters to Alaska to analyze the documents promptly.

For now, the picture that can be extracted from Palin the approximately 13,000 e-mails declassified, corresponding to the period between his election as governor of Alaska in 2006 and his nomination as vice presidential candidate, fits nicely in the public image of the popular icon of conservative America.

In his e-mails, which are available on the website of NBC, Palin often uses the same slang in their interviews with expressions of their own creation as "unflippinbelievable" or religious references as "holy" or "thanks the Lord." His religion is beyond doubt one of his e-mails, which is entrusted to God to help you make the state budget, a task that was too complicated: "I have been praying for wisdom in this.

.. God will have to show me what to do in the budget because people still do not know the right way ... He will show me. " The documents also show Palin's obsession with the media even before he became a national figure, and that is reflected in their rallies, in which he never forgets to make any derogatory reference to the press.

In an email, complaining of the Media Lies about her, and requested more help from your team to deliver "accurate feedback to counter the untruths that are circulating." In the political sphere, Palin often criticized the "establishment" Republican or "old guard", with which they had then tensions, which fits with their desire to present to the public as a reformer.
The e-mails have been published after several U.S. media outlets have requested access to them in 2008 under a federal law that promotes transparency. At first, the Alaska government refused to make public, but was eventually forced to comply with current legislation, although some 2,000 pages have been declassified.
