Global: Blogging about Todd Palin's Subpoena

Sarah Palin’s main man, Todd Palin, may be subpoenaed to speak about the firing of Alaska’s public safety commissioner, Walter Monegan.

According to recent reports, Monegan believes his release was brought upon him because of his refusal to fire trooper Mike Wooten, Palin’s former brother-in-law.

World bloggers used the weekend to soak in the news and write their thoughts.

English blogger Andrea Mann writes in her blog, England for Obama, that there should be more media coverage on the investigation.

“why isn’t this news all over the MSM (that’s blogosphere-speark for ‘mainstream media’, btw. And btw is blogosphere-speak for ‘by the way’)? It’s nowhere on the homepage of either MSNBC or CNN this morning, for example. As someone has pointed out somewhere, if Michelle Obama got so much as a parking ticket, the media would jump all over it. Isn’t it rather important that the spouse of a vice-presidential candidate is being made to testify in a scandalous case revolving around that very spouse?”

A “minority” in Alaska writes in his blog, that Palin took advantage of his wife’s privileges.

“Well it seems perfectly reasonable since “Mr. Sarah Palin” seems to have used his wife's access to badger people about personal concerns that he had no right to even talk to.”

And, one of the commentators on the “minority’s” blog wrote that Palin’s life was entertainment:

“Palin is the Jerry Springer Show!”

Finally, a Mexican blogger writes in his blog, “The Exile,” that Palin’s refusal to volunteer to testify may have caused the subpoena.

“It's not the original act that gets ‘em – it's always the cover up.”
