This is just unbelievable…
Governor Palin posted a rather disturbing Facebook note late Monday evening.
Spring has sprung in Alaska, and with this beautiful season comes the news today that the Palins have a new neighbor! Welcome, Joe McGinniss!
Yes, that Joe McGinniss. Here he is – about 15 feet away on the neighbor’s rented deck overlooking my children’s play area and my kitchen window. Maybe we’ll welcome him with a homemade blueberry pie tomorrow so he’ll know how friendly Alaskans are.
We found out the good news today. 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! 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 neighbor” 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…
Joe announced to Todd that he’s moved in right next door to us. He’s rented the place for the next five months or so. He moved up all the way from Massachusetts to live right next to us – while he writes a book about me. Knowing of his many other scathing pieces of “journalism” (including the bizarre anti-Palin administration oil development pieces that resulted in my Department of Natural Resources announcing that his work is the most twisted energy-related yellow journalism they’d ever encountered), we’re sure to have a doozey to look forward to with this treasure he’s penning. Wonder what kind of material he’ll gather while overlooking Piper’s bedroom, my little garden, and the family’s swimming hole?
Welcome, Joe! It’ll be a great summer – come borrow a cup of sugar if ever you need some sweetener. And you know what they say about “fences make for good neighbors”? Well, we’ll get started on that tall fence tomorrow, and I’ll try to keep Trig’s squeals down to a quiet giggle so we don’t disturb your peaceful summer. Enjoy!
– Sarah Palin
I can’t imagine how utterly frustrating it must be to have your home sanctuary, the place you and your family reside in peace, totally violated in this manner. Exactly how far does the left (mostly media types) plan on going in their quest to destroy Sarah Palin? They still haven’t figured out that they CAN’T destroy her!
Even now with this, she is mocking this vile bastard with typical Palin humor and some rather lovely comments about the changing seasons. She’s handling this much better than I would be but it has still got to be a horrid thought to know that a man that wishes you and yours nothing but harm is so close to your children and home.
In the coming days I want to find out more about this book he is writing. What kind of publisher would pay a known plagiarist the kind of money that it would take to make the move up to Wasilla? Who does he know? I have all kinds of questions. Like, what will the media say about their fellow traveler making such a sadistic move to write his garbage? Probably nothing. As low as the left has sunk and as far as the media has gone left, they will excuse it if they cover it at all.
So I say, rock on, Palin family. Haters will be haters, keep doing your thing no matter how creepy the hate gets. I will say an extra prayer tonight for that family. I will pray for their safety and strength to cope with this horrible creature they find in their midst.
As far as Joe McGinniss is concerned… Just know that when you pull a stunt like this, it’s all down hill from there.
