A McCain advisor not only called Palin a diva, but he suggests that Palin doesn’t trust her husband. Whew. This is getting fun.

Todd Palin reminds me of the character Wormtongue from Lord of the Rings, lurking around and spying for the tyrants in power. And some of it may have been illegal.

Two details of this detailed NYT article on TrooperGate stick out to me (h/t lemondloulou). In this post I’ll look at how Walt Monegan’s testimony contradicts the First Dude’s. Here’s what First Dude had to say in his affidavit.
I was not aware of the Grimes report until July 2008, after Monegan left the government.

Someone liberated a copy of the affidavit Todd Palin submitted in TrooperGate. Unfortunately, the AP only wants to report it has the document–it doesn’t seem to want to go to the trouble of telling us what’s in it.

Let’s assume the Palins pay thet $6000 in back taxes they owe. Then I’m happy to stop calling them tax cheats. But that doesn’t change the underlying scam–that Sarah billed the state so she could cart her children around with her on official trips.

No one wants to ‘fess up to having told the Palin-friendly TrooperGate witnesses to blow off their subpoenas. I wonder why?
