Joe McGinnis found himself unpacking his bags yesterday to a volley of public criticism and an inbox full of hate-mail, after the former Vice Presidential candidate used her Facebook page to circulate a breezy rant which described him, in no uncertain terms, as an old-fashioned neighbour from Hell.The Left since 2008 has constantly given Sarah Palin the typical derision they give all conservatives--dumb, hayseed hick. Well, if she's that unintelligent, why does this stalking muckraker McGinnis feel the need to move next door.
But then, Mr McGinnis isn't your average boy next door. And his motives in renting the two-storey home at the bottom of her tree-lined garden are unlikely to have been entirely honourable: he turns out to be a well-known author and journalist who has decided to spend summer in Alaska researching a book which has the working title: "Sarah Palin's year of Living Dangerously."
In a colourfully spelt "status update" on her Facebook page, accompanied by a photograph of McGinnis on the balcony of his new house, Mrs Palin described her dismay at discovering that the man gawping at her children's play area from a distance of "about 15 feet" is a left-leaning biographer of Richard Nixon, who last year wrote a lengthy exposé of Alaska's energy policy for Conde Nast Portfolio magazine.
"Upon my family's return this morning from endorsement rallies and speeches in the Lower 48 states, I finally got the chance to tackle my garden and lawn this evening!" explained Mrs Palin, in an update to the 1.6 million fans of her personal social networking page on Tuesday night.
"So, putting on the shorts and tank top to catch that too-brief northern summer sun and placing a giddy Trig in his toddler backpack for a lawn-mowing adventure, I looked up in surprise to see a "new neighbour" overlooking my property just a stone's throw away. Needless to say, our outdoor adventure ended quickly after Todd went to introduce himself to the stranger who was peering in."
They won't admit it...they're afraid of her because she's the real thing!
Sick liberals are cheering this stalking of a public figure. I thought liberals were the ones who lectured us about "privacy." So much for that. Of course, they could care less that she's also a mom with young children.
Mark Levin has given listeners the creep McGinnis' e-mail address at this page.
If I was in Wasilla, let's see how Joe McGinnis liked it if I moved next door to him and watched his every move. Jerk!
