Joe McGinniss is some weird creepy dude that is hanging out a little too close to Sarah Palin and her family. Look at his hair, if that doesn’t scream psycho stalker pervert then I don’t know what does. McGinniss is writing a book about Palin and in doing so, he apparently figured that it was okay to move in next door and stare creepily through the window at the Palin family. McGinniss’ publisher, Broadway/Random House, doesn’t seem to mind as they obviously haven’t asked him to put a stop to it. Most likely, Broadway/Random House is fully backing McGinniss in his perversion because the controversy behind this whole shitty scenario will sell more books. America loves scandal and perverts prosper in the land of sperm and idiocy.
So for five months, Joe McGinniss is renting the house right next to the Palin fam. The former Governoress has built a giant fence to block McGinniss’ pervy behavior. That seems like a good start at thwarting the creepiness of the situation but peeping toms are pretty resourceful. McGinniss, who is going to write a hefty smear piece on the Palin family, will most likely not be respectful of Palin’s wishes and warnings and he will push the bar until it breaks. Really, he is abusing his freedom and just being a complete megadouche and dickbag.
Sarah Palin recently said: “Wonder what kind of material he’ll gather while overlooking Piper’s bedroom, my little garden, and the family’s swimming hole?”
Joe McGinniss responded to Palin accusing her of unleashing the “hounds of hell” and having a willingness to “incite hatred.”
Glenn Beck referred to McGinniss’ behavior as “really creepy.”
Joe McGinniss responded to Beck with: “Creepy is as creepy does.”
Joe McGinniss furhter responded to Palin with the classy: “..Palin was using the same tactics that the Nazis had used against their foes in the 1930s.”
Why does everyone seemingly jump on the Nazis as a reference point about everything? It’s redundant and ineffective. Well, McGinniss’ hair is reminiscent of Hitler’s, so there!
Anyway, what McGinniss is doing is within his rights but no matter how you slice it, it is intrusive and downright eerie. He could’ve easily just moved to Wasilla, Alaska and talked to the Palin family’s neighbors and friends; he didn’t have to move in next door.
Defending his actions to the press, McGinniss said: ”Look, this is a pain in the ass for them, I understand that. If I were her, I’d be upset. I’d be annoyed. But I’d be an adult about it, and I would figure out, okay, how can we resolve this in a way that’s not going to make this into something that everybody gets obsessive about? By being here, I have learned things, and I’ve gotten an insight into her character, into her ability to incite hatred, that before I only knew about in the abstract.”
That sounds halfway sane and if he supposedly understands how she feels about the situation (or how almost anyone would feel about it), then he should have taken a completely different approach. It’s pretty obvious to me that Joe McGinniss is doing this to get the very response that he has gotten. He knows exactly what he’s doing. What better way to present his smear piece, with McGinniss the victim and Palin the Nazi. Now he has the “justification” he needs to attack her in his book and the liberal Palin-hating fanatics will have a new hero.
