Fence

I'm hardly surprised that Sarah Palin has had a conniption over someone threatening to commit journalism in her vicinity. She has kept it at bay for so long. But whining about her next door neighbor is a little conveenient after all these years:

The home Joe McGinniss is renting used to be an Oxford House from 2005 until 2008. The tenants were men recently released from prison who were recovering addicts. What? No fence to protect sexy Sarah in her tank top? Dear God! Who was lurking in that house watching her children play?

The Palins themselves rented the home McGinnis is staying in for six months in 2009, but weren’t interested in purchasing it. They didn’t want to spend the money. Last October they were “done with the house”.

Palin's implication that Joe McGinniss is some kind of pedophile is de rigueur but still disgusting. My hope is that now that McGinniss has been smeared by Palin and threatened by Todd, he will forge a bond with everyone else in Alaska who has experienced the same. They must have some stories to tell.

Good luck, Joe. Hang in, Sherry and Mercede. C'mon, Levi!
