We’ve all seen the email forwards running amok in this current election cycle. Digital communiques all about how Obama is a Muslim who attended a Madrassa or how he takes baths with Bill Ayers. So when I caught one from a supposed Wasilla resident who wants people to know how Sarah Palin really is, I took it with a grain of salt the size of Joe Biden‘s Delaware. That is, until I saw that Snopes had done the legwork to confirm that said Wasilla resident, Anne Kilkenny, not only actually exists, but indeed ‘fessed up to writing the letter.
Apparently, local voting registrar Kilkenny just wanted folks to be aware of what Palin has been like as Mayor and Governor. While she admits that there might be a little ax-grinding going on, Kilkeny also says she’s getting the word out because "I’m just a housewife. I don’t have a job she can bump me out of." Who is this Sarah Palin? [Ed’s note: Undead Molly might know.]
