    Palin E-Mail Hacker Says It Was Easy
    A person claiming to be the hacker who obtained access to Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's private Yahoo e-mail on Tuesday has posted a supposed first-person account of the hack, revealing the relatively simple steps he says he took to crack the private e-mail of the Republican vice-presidential candidate.

    The story was briefly posted Wednesday to the 4chan forum where the hack first surfaced. Bloggers have connected the handle of the poster, "Rubico," to an e-mail address, and tentatively identified the owner as a college student in Tennessee.

    Threat Level was unable to reach the student by phone because his number is unlisted. His father, when reached at home, said he could not talk about the matter and would have no comment. The father is a Democratic state representative.

    from your own link.

    and the link to the student so far is tenuous.

    If you really do read /s/ and /gif/ then I'm not surprised.

    Honestly, people on 4chan make stupid claims like this all the time.

    As Shogun said, this is tenuous at best.

    This is a NON-STORY.

    This coming from the runt that posted a CNN story claiming Palin never went to Iraq when Palin has never claimed to have been to Iraq.

    However shall the GOP stand against such assailing intellects?

    Runt? Hardy Har Har.

    I was pointing out with that article how McCain got all over Obama for not going to Iraq on this many days. But he doesn't mind his own VP never having even gone there ONCE.

    The GOP is accusing someone on 4chan (do you even have a idea of what that site is?) of doing this. Do you know how many lies and BS are posted on that site daily? That's the whole point of Anon, I could say I'm the king of the world but it doesn't make it exactly true.

    Since when did visiting Iraq become a pre-qual for VP?

    Obama should have stayed home instead of seeking to violate the constitutional separations of powers and the Logan Act by subverting US policy for his own cynical powerplays. Again: US troops are just political props to "progressives".

    Never said visiting became a prequal for VP, John McCain practically did. He must of saw something wrong with Obama not going to Iraq in a good number of days if he kept bringing it up.

    Oh by the way, LOVE the attempt at topic change!

    This is a topic about the hacker and 4chan. Answer my question or do you really have no idea what it is?

    Why did you change the topic? Perhaps because I was right.
