(Newser) – Sarah Palin's not running for president—yet—but Palin-backed candidates who don't endorse her for the job will have to answer to Todd and forget about having her support, judging by leaked emails obtained by Mudflats. Alaskan Senate candidate Joe Miller—who received Palin's endorsement earlier this year—told Fox News there were "a number of great candidates out there" when asked if he thought Palin was qualified to be president, prompting an angry email from the state's former First Dude.

"Sarah put her ass on the line for Joe and yet he can't answer a simple question," Todd wrote in an email to Miller and SarahPac's treasurer. "Joe, please explain how this endorsement stuff works, is it to be completely one sided. Sarah spent all morning working on a Face book post for Joe, she won't use it, not now." Miller apparently forwarded the email to associates. "This is what we're dealing with. Note the date and the complete misconstruction of what I said. Holy cow," he wrote. The Palin camp declined to comment on the matter to Politico, which notes that it's been a long time since Palin voiced her support for Miller's candidacy. (Read more Joe Miller stories.)
