I have decided I want to be an elitist. I realize I may have to get a snotty attitude and perhaps wear better clothes, not the spotty ones I normally put on, and even drive a superior car, not the fume-trailing 10-year-old crate of loose bolts that currently gets me around.
I want to be an elitist so I can ignore subpoenas like Todd Palin can. As a hunting, fishing, snow-mobiling kind of guy, Todd Palin might seem an unlikely kind of elitist but Republicans in their attacks on Democrats have opened up the field to anyone who wants to feel superior.
And I think there's nothing more superior and elitist than ignoring a subpoena because you no longer think that the investigation at the heart of it is legitimate. There are guys riding around in the back of Rolls Royce limousines who would like to look down their noses at investigations but aren't elitist enough to get away with it.
Whatever else comes out of the Troopergate investigation up there in Alaska, Todd Palin has certainly given me a glimpse of the high life. No more man-of-the people stuff for me. While I have never been subpoenaed, I want to run with the above-the-law crowd in case it should ever happen. Excuse me while I ignore you.
