Apparently during the period she was secluded from the press, Sarah Palin - John McSenile's VP running mate pick - must have been being tutored by Emperor Palpatine Cheney in arrogance and the finer points of thinking she's above the law. As is now being reported by Yahoo News Miss "Reform" and "Government Transparency" is refusing to cooperate with the independent counsel hired by Alaska lawmakers to review the firing of her public safety commissioner. Based on the track record of the Chimperator and Cheney, such conduct can mean only one thing: She's guilty as charged and thinks she can just brazenly lie and think the public is too stupid to figure things out. Moreover, lying is a Christianist hallmark: if their lips are moving, they are generally lying. The only thing that is tainted in this picture is Palin and her jerk husband. Here are some story highlights:
Spokesman Ed O'Callaghan initially said Palin, the Republican nominee for vice president, would not testify as part of the probe "as long as it remains tainted." He later clarified his statement to say Palin is "unlikely to cooperate" with the inquiry. O'Callaghan also said he did not know whether Palin's husband, Todd, would challenge a subpoena issued last Friday to compel his cooperation.
In the weeks since, it has emerged that the Palins and her staff repeatedly had contacted Monegan expressing their dismay at the continued employment of Trooper Mike Wooten, who divorced Palin's sister in 2005. The following year, Wooten was suspended for five days based on complaints filed by the Palins, including that he drank in his patrol car, used a Taser on his 10-year-old stepson and illegally shot a moose.
Palin initially said she welcomed the inquiry. But after she became McCain's running mate on Aug. 29 her lawyer sought to have the three-member state Personnel Board take over the investigation, alleging that public statements by the chair of the Senate Judiciary committee indicated the probe was politically motivated.
