The media’s relentless chase for Sarah Palin’s emails has backfired so much that their release will end up helping her rather than harming her. The 13,000 missives show the former Alaskan governor to be “idealistic, conscientious, humorous, and humane,” says Britain's Telegraph.

Toby Harnden, the website’s U.S. editor, says the release of the messages seems likely to leave Palin’s reputation “considerably enhanced.”

“One can only assume that the left-leaning editors who dispatched teams

of reporters to remote Juneau, the Alaskan capital, to pore over the emails in the hope of digging up a scandal are now viewing the result as a rather poor return on their considerable investment,” Harnden writes.

Among the emails that make Palin look good, he points out, is one from May 2007 where she insists that all alcohol in the governor’s mansion should be removed because teens visiting during prom and graduation season may be tempted.

Another shows her willing to meet Pete Rouse, a Senate official who had lived in Alaska, even though an adviser told her, “He’s now chief of staff for a guy named Barack Obama.”

Harnden says, “The email release could mark the end of a chapter of what conservatives have termed ‘Palin Derangement Syndrome.’ Her enemies in the media appear to have overplayed their hand.”
