Author Joe McGinniss Reveals Prostate Cancer Diagnosis (Gov. Palin's creepy author next door)
The Wrap's Media Alley ^ | January 24, 2013 | Greg Gilman

Posted on 01/24/2013 2:24:48 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Joe McGinniss, the author of "Fatal Vision," "Final Vision" and a 2011 Sarah Palin biography, announced that he was diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer last May.

"I was diagnosed in May with advanced, metastatic prostate cancer," he wrote Wednesday on his Facebook page. "There is no cure, so sooner or later it's terminal."

--snip--

Most recently, McGinniss profiled Sarah Palin in "The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin," which portrayed the former GOP vice presidential candidate in a less than positive manner. After renting a house neighboring Palin's Alaskan home to carry out his research, he emerged with claims of infidelity within her marriage to Todd Palin, a "fetish" for black men and drug use. She wasn't pleased...

"they" say that every man will eventually get prostate cancer....its usually a long term illness and many men with prostate cancer die of something else.....

I won't belittle this man but fella, sometimes what goes around, comes around...

I know with the passage of Obamacare, the Death Panels have now advised against PSA testing , but this should have been caught previously.

I’m sure his family is very sad at this news. I’m not, but his loved ones are. They will probably have a long road ahead of them.

The slimy little punk who attacked Sarah Palin and her family will probably die a slow, painful death and then spend eternity in Hell. Couldn't have happen the a more deserving guy.

As a conservative who uses civil discourse. I won’t publicly reveal my true feelings.

His hatred took root and grew. Now it is eating him alive.

I am sorry he has cancer and wish him the best. No one should suffer cancer.

"I was diagnosed in May with advanced, metastatic prostate cancer," he wrote..."

If ya haden't been so busy poking your nose into Sarah Palin's bedroom windows you could have gotten a simple PSA test and be walking this Earth for a long time.

My friend's brother recently succumbed to prostate cancer. He was in his early 60s. Doctors usually tell men that if they are to contract any form of cancer, prostate is the one. But not always. I am sorry for anyone with cancer.

Wonder what his age is. Something else is more likely to get him before prostate cancer does. Uncle died at 89 of something else; had PC a long time before that.

I could be more sympathetic if only Joe had been less monstrous to the Palin family.

The Palins hated no one. And as far as I could tell they were silent rather than say a bad thing to or about anyone, like Joe.

My dad used to say 'Everything gets balanced out...."

Good luck, Joe, wherever you go.

Cancer is terrible. Even someone guilty of moving next to a public figure for the purpose of stalking her and writing an attack book doesn’t deserve the pain and suffering. I hope he will get all the help that the rest of us can expect from ObamaCare, and that his physician and nurses will treat him with the respect and consideration that he has shown his neighbors.

I thought he was a cancer.

Maybe his prostate is incubating a Joe McGinniss.

"I'm blessed to be entirely free of symptoms," he added. "And thanks to the exercise and diet in better shape otherwise than I've been in for at least twenty years."

Guess ol' Joe ain't so sick after all............What a BS article.

Joe spread hatred and vitriol denigrating and defaming a generally nice family. He has metastatic prostate cancer.

Family that was defamed believed in God and self sufficiency weathered the storm and moved on living a happy life with honorable people that love and respect them.

Joe, as part of the machinery of destruction, is just a cog in a propaganda machine that has now developed a malfunction that won't allow it to continue with it's job. Disreputable, fake, dishonest and superficial friends that are concerned with power and money will surely comfort this man on lonely painful nights after chemo or radiation. They'll help him change his diapers, wipe the vomit from his mouth, clean his hair and help bath him.......... or just present him with the option of not wasting oxygen and either encourage him to die or help the painful dying process.

what a great day to be alive Freepers. oh... and Bless his little heart... good luck Joe...have a GREAT DAY!!!

Sarah should send him a get well card. Sign it “praying for you”. And flowers. Chocolates might be too much.

You know the bit about pouring coals on an enemy’s head, and all that.

Being a good Christian woman, she probably already has, if she heard about it, or will soon.

A truly, truly evil individual.

All I’ll add is that I hope his last days before his trip to Hell are very long and intensely painful.

One of the pleasures of growing older is being around to see some of the real bastards running up hard against reality.

My grandpa made it all the way to 101 on that and his love of Jesus.

I hope he finds the love of Jesus soon. Ms. Palin can help give him some guidance in that area. I’m sure she’d be delighted to help.

Yep, God gave him cancer and a slow painful death because he was mean to the Palins. That's the God we all know and worship.
