You spent three years trying to hide this, Sarah.

The email account of Aug. 29, 2008, the day John McCain announced Palin as his running mate, tells a tale of jubilant shock and amazement from Palin devotees…

“Wow governor! Just watched you on TV!” wrote budget director Karen Rehfeld. “You knocked their socks off!”

“Can you believe it!” Palin replied. “He told me yesterday — it moved fast! Pray! I love you.”

Vice President Dick Cheney called the governor’s office requesting a call back.

“Talked to him. Thank you – you rock – i love you!!!” Palin wrote to Janice Mason, her scheduler and executive secretary.
