Okay, Todd Purdum and Vanity Fair, this is how it’s done. Let us now thank Scott Conroy and Shushannah Walshe for bringing to light the Steve Schmidt/Sarah Palin correspondence of October 15, 2008. It includes one of the most beautiful emails ever written by a busy professional to a lying, narcissistic idiot. The email is also a chance to see a Republican political operative going into reverse mode. Instead of scrambling facts, he’s spelling them out; hey, he’s good at that too.
Secession. It is their entire reason for existence. A cursory examination of the website shows that the party exists for the purpose of seceding from the union. That is the stated goal on the front page of the web site. Our records indicate that todd was a member for seven years. If this is incorrect then we need to understand the discrepancy. The statement you are suggesting be released would be innaccurate. The innaccuracy would bring greater media attention to this matter and be a distraction. According to your staff there have been no media inquiries into this and you received no questions about it during your interviews. If you are asked about it you should smile and say many alaskans who love their country join the party because it speeks to a tradition of political independence. Todd loves his countryWe will not put out a statement and inflame this and create a situation where john has to adress this
