Palin 'vengeful,' says author who moved in next door
CTV News ^ | October 1, 2011 | Andy Johnson

Posted on 10/01/2011 1:58:36 PM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum

Joe McGinnis's new book "The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin," hasn't won him any new friends in the Palin camp, and has likely created more than a few enemies among her supporters.

The book takes a hard look at Palin and her husband Todd, digging into her upbringing, what he considers her "deep streak" of racism, alleged drug use, rumours of affairs and general all-around bad parenting.

"I cannot imagine a world where a talented intellectual like Barack Obama is replaced by the likes of Sarah Palin. Surely, this will never happen." --Joe McGinniss

November 2012 is going to be so much fun.

Joe McGinnis did not like being outed in his plans to spy on the Palin family. His buying the house next to them was discovered by them and she mentioned it tastefully soon after he moved in.

I'm sure Alaskan were Amused.

CTV News KNOWS these are lies.

"McGinniss, Random House Published (PRE-PLANNED Literary Hoax
In the email below, sent in January of 2011, McGinniss reveals that his manuscript,
then under legal review at Crown/Random House,
could not prove its most headline-grabbing allegations. "


"From: Joe McGinniss To: Jesse Griffin
Sent: Thursday, January 27, 2011 6:15 PM
Subject: I have to ask you for help
Jesse–
Legal review of my manuscript is underway and here’s my problem:
no one has ever offered documentation of any of the lurid stories about the Palins.
... I’ve neither seen nor heard anything that indicates that Ms. Tripp’s story has any basis in fact.
... No one has ever provided factual evidence that:
a) Todd had sex with a hooker, or with anyone else outside his marriage.
b) Sarah had an affair with Brad Hanson, or anyone else.
c) Track was a druggie who enlisted in the army to avoid a jail term. Or that he vandalized Wasilla school buses.
d) Willow was involved in the vandalism of the empty house in Meadow Lakes. Or that Sarah rushed back from Hawaii to put the lid on that.
e) Trig is not Sarah’s natural born child.
f) Bristol was promiscuous as a high schooler and drank and used drugs, or became pregnant again after Tripp’s birth.

Jesse, if you can put me in touch with people who are willing
and able to substantiate any of the above, now is the time to do so.
Otherwise, I hope you won’t complain that there are no startling new revelations in my book.
... My book represents the last best chance to put the truth about Sarah in front
of the American people in a documented, verifiable way.
But I need facts that I can rely on.
I didn’t live this long and work this hard over so many decades
to wind up as AlaskaWTF between hard covers.
Joe"


SSDD

"In 1987, McGinniss agreed to pay $325,000 to settle a lawsuit brought
by the convicted murderer who was the subject of McGinniss’s book Fatal Vision."

"In 2003, Random House released a larger-than-life, massive bestseller
by James Frey entitled A Million Little Pieces. Later, it was revealed that the book
was a fantastical literary hoax that made its way past some of the highest-paid
and most respected editors and lawyers in the literary world. Doubleday/Random House
felt compelled to offer full refunds to those who had bought the book."

In other words, “Book sales are horrible so I’m going to cry to the media about how the Palins hate me.”

This guy is pathetic.

Don’t know how anyone could think of Joe McGinness as anything more than a creepy stalker. I would say the same thing if he had moved in next door to Jimmy Carter. It’s not a partisan thing. Any nut job who moves next door to someone for the sole purpose of sifting through their garbage is a creepy stalker and he should have had a restraining order imposed on him. There’s no telling how far this nutjob will take his mental illness.

Alaskans were indeed quite amused, and many tailed him at any opportunity to simply harass him and to generally make him miserable.

I believe I even met him one day at a local bar called Mug Shots not too far from where the Palins live and he was trying to buddy up to me when he heard my company delivered a concrete septic tank to their property.

he was that desperate to dig up “shit” he was asking all about the septic system and how it works that close to a lake and neighbors drinking water wells.

joe, joe, joe... If you honestly think Sarah Palin is vengeful, you should move your two bit lying @$$ in beside emperor bammy and the wookie and try to pull the same shenanigans you did with Sarah and her family, I guarantee you’ll learn a whole new appreciation of the word vengeful.

You simply too d@mned stupid to understand just how well you were treated by Todd and Sarah.

He doesn’t gain any “creedence” by being outed as a creepy, lying, stalker. I hope his publisher sues him to get his advance back.

If McGinnis really wanted to write a book about a nasty, vengeful Alaskan, why didn’t he move in next door to Lisa Murkowski?

But Sarah Palin don’t have a chance, so why the fear that she will replace Barack OBama. Do you go around digging deep into the other GOP Candidates because they might replace “talented” OBama.

I think this Liberal believe Palin have a chance

Up to and including the follow through.

The fact that the “intellectual” elites love Obama really says something about how intellectual is defined. The fact that the “intellectual” elites have had free rein in running this country into the ground tells me that we need some good old fashioned commonsense replacements for all of them, starting with Sarah Palin as president but by no means stopping there.

You can read Chapter One free on Amazon.com The entire book is devoted to naming as many people as possible and obviously twisting whatever they said into an implied juicy disclosure about the Palins. There are going to be so many lawsuits against McGinnis and Random House, that half of Wasilla will soon be millionaires.

This book is so poorly written, and contains more inuendos and lies than anything I've ever read. He admits Sarah is a devout practicing Christian, then he turns around and tries to say the Palins use the "f" word in virtually every sentence. (How could he possibly know what they say in their house?) Then in the email he admits he doesn't have a single fact to back up his fiction. Random House should soon be Palin House, and Joe should be left so broke that bread and water would look like a gourmet meal.
