Blunt e-mail release enlightening, but leaves a lot to be desired

Associated Press offers an examination of the 60,000 pages of e-mails released by Gov. Matt Blunt this week.

While the article details some enlightening information, it also notes three things that cause concern.

1. Blunt conducted most of his state business on campaign accounts that are not open to the public.

2. In spite of the 60,000 plus document release, the governor still held back thousands of pages.

3. An incredible amount of official government e-mail was used for patently political purposes.

Of course, that last one should come as no surprise, considering that the governor has often turned his official state news releases into political diatribes against Jay Nixon and the Democrats.

Blunt is learning the same Nixon lesson Richard Nixon learend the hard way. It's the lie that gets you.

Let's hope Nixon will recoup the tax dollars that were spent on Ed Martin and the rest of this sordid crew since they LIED to us the whole time about their roles in this fisaco.

This will be Blunt's legacy.

That little Son of a Blunt will be out of our lives in January. Let us vow to never mention his name again.

Randy, did you happen to see the Post-Dispatch pieces on this story? I think we might be interested in your take...

Meanwhile, did you notice the Blunt e-mail saga came out the same day as the story on Barack Obama giving up his Blackberry?

Isn't it ironic, as Alanis would say.
