hacked? hardly

So, its bad enough that Palin and her minions like to use personal emails for state business in an attempt to keep information secret, as an assistant claimed that e-mail messages sent to a private address on a "personal device" like a BlackBerry "would be confidential and not subject to subpoena."

Now it turns out that it took a 20yo college student about 15 minutes to hack into said personal email through Yahoo!'s "I forgot my password" set of security questions.

I'm not defending said college student ... the poor guy broke the law and will probably go to jail for this. But it didn't exactly take a James Bond or a cyber war with Alaska's next-door neighbor Russia to crack her email.

I mean this is a candidate for Vice President we're talking about. If her email isn't safe from a curious college student, she is NOT ready to lead the free world.
