You are likely to have seen this piece already. It's an email by one Anne Kilkenny, "a long-time resident of Wasilla, Alaska, who has known Sarah Palin for 16 years." Initially intended for a few friends and relatives, it got posted to the Internet and was soon read by millions of people.
While Kilkenny is no fan of Palin, she offers a rather moderate and balanced critique. More importantly, she fills in some details than dear Sarah "forgot" to mention in her acceptance speech and still forgets to note while on the campaign trail.
The email has been disseminated with the title, "The Sarah Palin I Know."
