Alaska officials will release 24,199 pages of Sarah Palin’s emails today after the first public records request was made.
Seventeen media organizations and individuals will each receive six 50-pound boxes of printed and partially redacted copies of emails from Palin’s term as governor through 2008. Palin’s emails from the McCain presidential campaign are not included in what will be made available.
In an interview on Fox News Sunday, Palin indicated there isn’t much news in the emails. “Every rock in the Palin household that could ever be kicked over and uncovered anything, it’s already been kicked over,” she said. more >>
Giving your life to Christ after a Mexican lunch can only happen to Christian comedian Jim Labriola, known as the delivery man on the former hit show “Home Improvement.”
Labriola never expected to go into “Christian comedy.” To him, comedy – at least the kind popularly portrayed today – was about injecting a few curse words here and there with a mixture of sexual innuendos added to the punch line.
Labriola fit the generic profile of a comedian up until he married and found Christ. more >>
According to recent campaign polls, Mitt Romney is at the top of the pack of Republicans seeking to replace President Obama. Despite his frontrunner status, the Romney campaign has elected not to compete in any GOP straw polls, including Iowa.
“Our campaign has made the decision to not participate in any straw polls, whether it’s in Florida, Iowa, Michigan or someplace else,” said Matt Rhoades in a written statement. "We respect the straw poll process. In the last presidential campaign we were both strengthened as an organization and learned some important lessons by participating in them. This time we will focus our energies and resources on winning primaries and caucuses.”
Four years ago, Romney had a different view when addressing the importance of the Iowa straw poll. more >>
Considered a Tea Party favorite, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) continues to garner positive reactions from conservative voters as she touts her pro-life stance and vows to repeal Obamacare.

She also chairs the House Tea Party Caucus. Before becoming a member of Congress, she served in the Minnesota State Senate. She is a graduate of Winona State University and Oral Roberts University. more >>
Mitt Romney has an approval rating above that of other Republican presidential candidates and is in a dead heat with President Barack Obama, according to a new poll.
The Washington Post-ABC poll released Tuesday also showed Americans were concerned about rising gasoline prices, falling home values and increasing unemployment, which have evaporated the popularity Obama enjoyed following the killing of Osama bin Laden just a month ago.
In general, six out of 10 Americans interviewed gave Obama negative marks for the handling of the economy and deficit. Almost two-thirds of political independents also disapproved of Obama’s stewardship of the economy. more >>
Republican candidates are aggressively vying for voter and media attention and coverage, especially in Iowa. However, some are bypassing the Hawkeye state and its traditionally Christian conservative Republican voter base for the fiscal conservatives of New Hampshire.
Today’s entry of former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, while expected, officially increases a roster eager to take on President Obama in Iowa.
But first they must take on each other, expectant social conservatives and tea-party activists who are more interested in the debt ceiling than abortion. more >>
