Fenced-off author leaving home next to Palins

Sarah Palin can take down the fence. Palin's neighbor of three months on Wasilla's Lake Lucille, author Joe McGinniss, is packing his bags and notebooks and leaving Sunday for his home in Massachusetts to write the book he has been researching on the former governor and GOP vice presidential candidate.

I think it is Eubonics Street Jive. No one can understand a word of it. Save time and ignore.

from one who knows wrote:
"It's just a peculiar thing, but she does, as I found out in May, she presses a button and what comes back is hate," (McGinniss) said.

"The people who respond when she complains about something are just so filled with hate. I got some of the ugliest, most vile e-mails directed at me, my grandchildren, my children, my wife - just ugly, ugly stuff."

Once he settled in, McGinniss said, he didn't have a single unpleasant encounter with anybody in Wasilla. Some people objected to the welcome he had received.

"They started bringing me blueberry pie. I had many offers of handguns to borrow. I turned them all down. But for about two weeks there, I couldn't say hello to somebody without, they said,'I've got a couple of guns for you in my truck."'

He found people willing to talk, as he had in 1975.

"It was the greatest place because there were no closed doors. There was nobody who said,'I don't want to talk to you. And that's pretty much the way it is today with the single exception of that least Alaskan of all Alaskans, Sarah Palin."'
All that hate from people claiming to be "Christians"? Christ did not teach hate. These people may be religious, but Christ-like they are NOT.

The quote above was spoken like the gentlemen McGinniss is. I'm really looking forward to his book.

All his other books are excellent. I'll bet he sells a ton of the earlier one on Alaska that he has re-issued.

It will be poetic justice if Palin's attacks on McGinniss turn out to help him sell more books, and I've no doubt that will be the outcome.

His location used to be overseas (Vietnam or Thailand I think) but now it's here. I seriously have no idea what he's talking about most of the time.
