The Law Doesn't Apply To Them

It seems to me that even Republicans should be troubled by the activities we're hearing about of John McCain's campaign and Sarah Palin and husband in Alaska.

She was going to cooperate in the Troopergate investigation, which involves subpoenas, the whole process of getting to the facts and making a determination what happened. But in recent days it's gotten all mucked up with legal wrangling and stonewalling, as the campaign apparently tries to tie it up till after the election.

Palin's husband was subpoenaed, but refuses to testify because he doesn't believe in the legitimacy of the probe. That's incredible. These people aren't even elected yet and already they're acting like Bush and Cheney and the whole corrupt Bush administration!

It's troubling. There was a time when the Republican party styled themselves the party of law and order. But not in the last eight years, that's for sure. They've been crooked to the core. The idea that people could refuse to testify when subpoenaed because they don't "believe" in the legitimacy of the case, etc., is mindboggling.

The average Republican surely doesn't think this is the way to run a country based on the rule of law. It's scary what all they might do if we made the foolish mistake of actually electing them! No retraint now, what would it be then?
