All work and no play makes Sarah an angry bear

Tens of thousands of emails to and from Sarah Palin during her time as Alaska governor are to be released within the next week after more than two years of obstruction and delay.
Woo hoo what juicy tid-bits await us??

 Although 24,199 emails sent between Palin and her aides are to be released, 2,415 are being held back by the state law department on legal grounds. Some of the emails to be released will include redactions.
So all the stuff about Grandpa McCain and banning books in the Wasilla library and how much Griftgeld she gets from the oil companies will be missing.
The reasons she gave for not giving the e-mails out when asked and the denouement are the highlight of the whole thing.

When the request for emails was initially made, the cost to each news organisation was initially put at $15m (£9.2m), by Palin's office, possibly to dissuade them. As it turns out, the cost is only $725.97 in copying fees, plus shipping costs.
Will the new doco by her BFF have "Yackity Sax" in the soundtrack?

Hey, c'mon, none of that's HER fault. Don't you understand she's an EXECUTIVE? She delegates this sort of work.

In this case she asked McMegan to calculate the costs...

"If I Only Had a Brain" is also on the soundtrack.

So, if I charge $15000000 for access to my awesome blog it's gonna seem like a bargain when it only costs $725.97.
