Imagine if Michelle Obama sent emails like Todd Palin


The Mudflats blog revealed an email yesterday from Alaskan Senate hopeful and all around teabagger, Joe Miller. Turns out there’s a little trouble in paradise Alaska between Miller the Teabagger and Sarah Palin the Teabagger Annointer. Sarah promoted him (since he was the the teabagger candidate) and Joe Miller found a way to piss her off.

The email in question copies an email sent to Miller by Todd Palin, husband of Sarah. Mudflats contends the email suggests Sarah is planning to run for president in 2012. If she were to win, we would have, as First Gentlemen, a borderline illiterate.

Imagine if emails like this turned up having been written by Michelle Obama.

Try this little thought experiment: Imagine if an email like this one from Todd Palin turned up authored by Michelle Obama.

Imagine if an email by Michelle Obama turned up with this many grammatical errors, this many punctuation errors.

Imagine if an email by Michelle Obama turned up showing her to be so much in control of her husband’s campaign.

Imagine if an email by Michelle Obama turned up with this level of immaturity, unprofessionalism and childishness.

Imagine the outcry from Limbaugh. From Hannity. From Beck. From Levine. From the entire Fox News cast of idiots.

If, God forbid, Sarah Palin were to somehow become president, this inarticulate man will represent our country as the First Gentleman. Imagine him traveling all over the world on our behalf, meeting with foreign leaders.

But more than that, imagine the literal explosion it would cause in the conservative cable television media if an email like this were to surface with Michelle Obama’s name on it.

Just for a minute, for one minute, imagine that.
