The story you're about to read is not (entirely) true. It is, however, more accurate than most things on network television.

Late last week, the State of Alaska released 24,419 pages of email messages from and to former Governor Sarah Palin, finally fulfilling a Freedom of Information Request Act made in 2008.

The reason for the long delay? The emails had to be located, collated, spell checked, formatted, reformatted, translated into Latin and then Greek, translated back into English, printed out and mimeographed for distribution to the media. Then the mimeo machine broke down and they had to wait six months for a repairman to make it to Anchorage.

For reasons as yet unclear, however, eSarcasm received 24,422 pages of emails. And contained within those three extra pages were stunning revelations about exactly how the McCain campaign came to choose Palin as running mate in August 2008.

We present them now unexpurgated and in chronological order for easier reading:
