'Sarah's Inbox' Simplifies Search of Palin's Emails

Randy Snyder/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- You can now search through Sarah Palin’s emails as easily as you’d search through your own.

On Wednesday, the Sunlight Foundation, a nonprofit, nonpartisan group, debuted “Sarah’s Inbox,” a searchable database of Palin’s recently released emails that looks and functions like Gmail.  Users can search the more than 14,000 emails from Palin’s tenure as Alaska governor by keyword and “star” messages for later viewing.

There’s also handy “Inbox” and “Sent Mail” links as well as a handful of “Sample Searches” including “flippinbelieveit” and “who’s going to trim my hair?”

In a blog post, the Sunlight Foundation said they started the project after they were approached by Twitter users to “take this ugly data and add the Sunlight secret sauce to make it user friendly.”

“Sarah’s Inbox” builds on technology the group developed for “Elena’s Inbox,” which it launched after Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan's emails were released during her confirmation hearings last year.
