Excuse Of The Week

Why the First Dude can’t honor his subpoena from the Alaska state legislative committee investigating Troopergate:

Van Flein also brought up the Palins’ busy campaign schedule leading up to election day, noting Todd Palin will be out of state today.

“Moreover, because his spouse is her party’s nominee for Vice President of the United States, his scheduling obligations over the next two months will make it virtually impossible for him to prepare for and present the testimony called for in the Subpoena at the specified location during that time period,” Van Flein’s letter says.

Yep, I guess he’s just too indispensable to the Palin-McCain campaign, and that’s a totally valid reason to blow off a subpoena.  That, and the usual your-puny-investigation-has-no-power-over-me nonsense that Republicans now respond to all subpoenas with.
