I was really intrigued by this blog-type post I read (most of) last night, calling Sarah Palin America's Evita ("the designated muse of the coming American police state"). Now, the poster sounds a little wacky (is Naomi Wolf's mail really being read? is her email being hacked?), but I found the claims that Palin might actually be being set up to be Rove's little political puppet quite ... digestible. Please, have a look and let me know what you think.

Yes, her email was hacked. It was a big news story a few days ago.

I am referring to Naomi Wolf's email, not Palin's. I will edit to clarify.

Oh sorry -- I was thinking "How did you miss that email"

For Naomi Wolf's email she's probably referring to the illegal NSA wiretapping rather than anything in specific -- the EFF is famously suing them for it.

Well, I don't want to discount the importance of the election or slime capacity of Karl Rove, but let's remember:

It's a Presidential election. There is a LOT of hyperbole flying around. And the Huffington Post is not what I would call neutral or calm in this fight.

As she points out, Wolf has already written a book called "The Fall of America".

As a public figure, there are other people who could be (illegally) going through her mail. It's quite possible that they are Agents of Rove, or just fellow-travellers.

As for Palin's being Rove's puppet Alaska Experience Barbie - well, duh. Story here is that McCain wanted Liebermann and Rove said no. And pushed Moose-Grip Barbie instead. Someone McCain had met for only half an hour.

I totally buy Palin as Rove-esque, but I don't know that I buy that he's engineered her choice, since he seems a little tepid on her: http://network.nationalpost.com/np/blogs/francis/archive/2008/09/24/karl-rove-on-sarah-palin.aspx

But she does seem to be the result of a Rovian way of campaigning.
