    Yes jury duty is a very good reason to call off a very expensive "tour"

    I think I will put off my "tour" of the French country side for jury duty.

    Doesn't make any sense. She stops the tour, heads back up to Alaska without any mention of jury duty, then once it's reported that the tour stopped she said it's due to jury duty with no further details and she won't even specify when the tour will kick back up.

    I'll gladly bet a 20 dollar donation to DP that no conclusive evidence of her going to jury duty comes up and that she will not finish this bus tour at any point this year. It's over with.

    Reasonably likely, maybe. But there is no difinitive proof one way or the other, so it's a moot point.

    Her 'job' at that point was the tour. His was being VP.

    Add a formal apology to Palin in this thread, and I'll take that bet.

    Partisan? Surely you jest...

    You don't know me. You don't have an inkling of my political philosophies. I will say this. Unlike some...you know, like my right testicle, I'm not a right wing sycophant. And I'll share that I've voted for Republicans in major office many more times than not.

    I don't give a damn who is in office. There's no elected officials existing in our current day history that gives a damn about "We the People". They are all self-will-run-riot. If you love'em, cool. But they don't love you back. However, they won't hesitate to spend "your tax money"for your vote. Keep your eyes focused on the bouncing political propaganda ball!

    Oh...and I gave you a link... And it burns your lower posterior. Sorry..

    I know...can't help myself. But I'm sure you and Whovian will take up the slack for me.

    You should read what people post, Whovian.

    The link Winston posted, again, with the relevant information quoted.

    According to the newspaper, he sat in the center of the room, wearing a suit and mixed with other prospective jurors -- until he had to excuse himself to take phone calls, including one from his boss.

    I've been called for jury duty several times and my wife was called early this year. Two different states. Notice is sent many weeks, 8 or so, ahead of the time to show up. Yup, she had to get back right away.
