Remember when Sarah Palin’s Yahoo email account was hacked?
Republicans never blamed the hacker for losing the election.
And this is what I wrote about it back in 2008:
My thoughts on email hacking: I bet that the KGB is regularly reading emails of important Americans. If some teenage hacker can get at an important person’s email, why not a big hostile foreign agency supported by billions of dollars of funding? This should be a wake up call of some sort.
I guess no one heeded the wake up call. People really ought to read my blog.
In a comment a while ago, someone said “Lion, if the Republican candidate was hacked you’d feel a lot differently.”
Well actually, it happened in 2008, and back then I quite enjoyed being able to see some of her emails. I think I’m pretty consistent in enjoying the public viewing of important people’s emails.
I will once again state my opinion that publishing these emails is more like a college prank than a grave threat to the American Way of Life.

I believe I was right that the KGB was reading people’s emails. Do you think the KGB was reading Hillary Clinton’s emails on her unprotected server? I sure do.
But this doesn’t mean that the KGB gave the emails to WikiLeaks. WikiLeaks says that the DNC emails came from an insider, and we know that Podesta’s emails were stolen with a simple phishing scam which didn’t require a sophisticated malware programmed by the KGB’s top hackers.
Julian Assange personally hates Obama and HRC, and I also believe that hackers, even hackers in foreign countries, wanted Trump to win the election because hackers are prole and proles all over the world love Trump. Even proles in Russia love Trump. That proles love Trump is something that the SWPLs working for the CIA just don’t get.

And even if our government has rock-solid proof the release of the emails was directed by the Russian government (which it clearly doesn’t), the big hissy fit being thrown over it seems more like a last-ditch attempt to hurt Donald Trump then a reasonable response to a very minor public release of emails, especially considering that whomever hacked the emails did Americans a huge favor if they in any way helped to elect Trump (although I don’t think they helped at all because in retrospect no one paid any attention to the emails who wasn’t already a Trump fan, thanks to the MSM not reporting about them in any way that would be negative for HRC). And they also did us a favor by alerting people to take cybersecurity more seriously.
