Sounds like a stalker to me...

By Randy Highsmith, Chairman
2012 Draft Sarah Committee

Many of you have likely read or at least heard about the Palin's new neighbor, Joe McGinniss. Who is Joe McGinniss? Well he calls himself a journalist and author of true crime and non-fiction novels, but I and many other Palin supporters call him a stalker. At first I thought he was just an overbearing lefty trying to dig up something on the Former Governor and her family for his book until I read this:

UPDATE: (via Politico's Ben Smith): I haven't been able to reach McGinniss, but did send an errant email to his son, the novelist Joe McGinniss Jr., who replied, "Sadly, she's right. We tried our best to intervene, but alas, the heart wants what it wants. We can only pray for him now. He's convinced that Todd will step aside and when the time is right, he'll be there, right next door, to pick up the pieces."

Wow, talk about creepy! That certainly meets the standard if you ask me. The publisher of his book is Random House, I wonder why they support such actions.

There are so many excellent Palin supporters and writers out there that write so much better than I. I thought I would share some of them with you. Check out a little bit of what they are saying on the subject of Mr. McGinniss by clicking on the links below.

    From Governor Sarah Palin's FB Notes:

    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!

    Hi, Neighbor! May I Call You “Joe”?
