Governor Sarah Palin excoriates “former neighbor” Joe McGinniss as a liar. Again. It seems he wrote some cockamamie book where he accused someone of murder, but the guy was innocent. He was probably drunk at the typewriter just pounding at the keys with his nose again. I don’t know the man, but his writing “skills” lead me to assume this is how he completes his manuscripts.
Last year I suffered through McGinniss’ book on Sarah Palin, you know, the one he wrote when he stalked her family and her for a while up in Wasila, Alaska. McGinniss would stand on a balcony of the house he rented and would try to peep into Piper Palin’s windows and would gawk at the family if they were outside in the backyard. It got so bad that Todd had to call some buddies over to put up a fence to keep McGinniss from staring at the children when they were trying to play or go swim in the lake. McGinniss’ own son even publicly asked his father to stop, because it was all so creepy.
The book that resulted from the stalking was amateur at best, but was mostly just the sort of ravings that would have been scribbled on bathroom walls in another age. ”Exclusive sources” for the book included people who were angry at one or more of the Palins for one thing or another on a personal level; some of them felt slighted because they used to be friends but “hadn’t heard from them in a while”, and so they decided to badmouth them. I think I’d forgive a friend of mine if she didn’t have much time to write long personal letters to me anymore after she ran for Vice President of the United States and became one of the most sought-after speakers on American freedom and energy independence in the country.
