What Happened to "Full Cooperation", Governor?

Sarah Palin has repeatedly pledged "full cooperation" into the investigation of her alleged abuse of power as governor. Now, suddenly, we hear a very different story:

Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin will not cooperate with a legislative inquiry into her firing of an Alaska official, her campaign said, labeling the probe "partisan."

Spokesman Ed O'Callaghan said Monday the investigation had become "tainted" by Democratic state lawmakers targeting Palin, the governor of Alaska who Republican White House hopeful John McCain chose as his running mate late last month.

"I think it's fair to say that the governor is not going to cooperate with that investigation so long as it remains tainted and run by partisan individuals that have a predetermined conclusion," O'Callaghan said.

Riiiiiiight. It's all the Democrats' fault. Never mind that the investigation has included Republicans all along the way.

It's important to note that Ed O'Callaghan is not a spokesman for Sarah Palin: he's a spokesman for the McCain campaign. This would be the same campaign that said just two weeks ago:
"The Governor did nothing wrong and has nothing to hide."
Gee, it seems like maybe she does?

They better subpoena her, and the sooner the better. The American people have a right to get to the bottom of this mess before electing someone who abuses her power to higher office.
