    I hope I never get shafted with jury duty - terribly ****ty, if you ask me.
    I got out of mine once too. It is a 'duty', so to speak. Maybe she takes it more seriously than we do.

    where did the piece I posted mention weeks and weeks of jury duty?

    It didn't. You're reading way more into it... just like you always do.

    Automatically? Without her actually requesting it? Really?

    Some sarcasm stated better than I could:

    Oh, jury duty! Why didn't I think of that? Of course, that is the most obvious reason why somebody like Sarah Palin would cut short her nationwide, media-scrutinized bus tour. You know how jury duty is constantly gumming up the works for all those political icons and media superstars in the world. Aren't you getting so tired of constantly opening up newspapers to discover that the most famous and influential people in the world are cutting short all their well-laid plans on a dime so that they can return home and attend jury duty? It's practically a cliche at this point, am I right?

    And don't you hate how every time to show up to jury duty, there's always some figurehead for a nationwide political movement sitting right beside you on the bench lazily flipping through a magazine? Grrrrrr! It happens so often so as to become boring!

    For Sarah Palin's sake — actually, for the whole country's sake — I really hope that whatever actual trial Sarah Palin actually get out of sitting through with eleven other actual people isn't something goes on for an actual really long time, like the O.J. Simpson trial. That could seriously put a dent in her non-plans to not un-run for pretend-president.

    You may, upon request, to be excused from jury service if any of the following apply:

    • You are more than 70 years of age
    • You have already served as a grand or petit juror in federal/state court within the last two years
    • You serve as a volunteer firefighter or a member of a rescue squad or ambulance crew for any federal, state or local government agency
    • You are a practicing Attorney, Physician, Dentist or Registered Nurse
    • You are a full-time school teacher
    • You are a member of the clergy
    • You are an Active Duty member of the Armed Forces of the United States
    • You are the sole proprietor of a business
    • Temporary hardships such as medical problems, convalescence, prior vacations plans, students who are away for college, economic or family hardships, etc.

    Now what is so difficult about making a simple request to be excused from jury duty for a very expensive vacation paid for by donors to sarah pac?

    Sarah Palin Says Jury Duty Comes Before Bus Tour - KGMI-AM
    I'll admit I'm wrong when there's any evidence of her actually going through with jury duty or her continuing her bus tour but I don't believe the jury duty thing at all.

    Her running for president would be the best thing ever. I could see the bumper stickers now...

    Sarah Palin... uh... ahh that's good enough.

    the fact you refer to the tour as a personal vacation shows your partisan hackery.

    As was said earlier... she apparently takes the idea of jury duty as a 'duty' more seriously than others do.

    I'm not surprised you fault her for this. I have no doubt that if she had requested to be excused, you'd be all over her like white on rice, claiming she is more interested in her vacation than performing the dities of a good citizen.

    Rock on with your hate.

    No - not a matter of that - things like "whose going to watch the kids?" come to mind for me - seems like an extreme hassle.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    the haters here should all use this as their avatar if Palin actually does report for jury duty.

    You have to admit, this is hard to take seriously. Jury duty?
