209197972_abac0cbe89.thumbnail.jpg McCain may not know how to send an email, but he’s an expert at umbrage:

"This is a shocking invasion of the Governor’s privacy and a violation of law," campaign manager Rick Davis said in a statement. "The matter has been turned over to the appropriate authorities and we hope that anyone in possession of these emails will destroy them. We will have no further comment."

 Let’s see.  Where have I seen this play run before? Thinking…thinking…ah, yes:

"This type of dirty politics has been a staple of the Lamont campaign from the beginning, from the nonstop personal attacks to the intimidation tactics and offensive displays to these coordinated efforts to disable our Web site," said Smith in a statement e-mailed to reporters Monday evening.

As speculation mounts that Palin might have been using a personal, unarchived email address for official business in order to avoid public record searches, I imagine the high dudgeon of the McPalin crew will work its way back to the Obama campaign somehow.  By the time anyone figures out WTF really happened, damage done.

Tim Tagaris, call your office.
