TLP: Recognize a Pattern Here?
Image: Wacky PackagesIs Sarah Palin about done? Because this is starting to get tedious. "Look at me! Look at me! Hey, everybody! Pay attention to me!" Soon followed by, "Why won't everyone leave me alone?" Extra points when she blames the media.
The latest Palapalooza involves author Joe McGinniss, who decided to rent a house in Wasilla, Alaska, to conduct research for a book, tentatively titled, "Sarah Palin's Year of Living Dangerously." Turns out, the house is next door to the former governor and failed Republican vice presidential nominee.
Predictably, Palin's inner middle school mean girl came out and she trashed McGinniss on Facebook, with a hint of creepiness. "Wonder what kind of material he'll gather while overlooking Piper's bedroom, my little garden, and the family's swimming hole?" she pecked.
Not able to resist an odd spectacle, NBC's "Today" show gave McGinniss the opportunity to respond. "I need to be in Wasilla to do my work," he said. "I'm not observing them at all. I'm here to talk to people who've known them for 40 years in Wasilla."
Back to you, Sarah. Via CNN:
Calling NBC's actions the "most recent illustration of the untrustworthiness of America's mainstream media," Palin criticizes the network on her Facebook page for not including statements she and her husband, Todd, had provided ahead of the segment.NBC later mumbled something about a "timing issue."
"We were glad to provide a statement and appreciated NBC's promise to run it," Palin wrote in the post Tuesday. "Todd and I both crafted the statement very carefully because our new neighbor has taken to accusing us of 'inciting hatred' – a charge which we obviously take very seriously … But there was just one problem: NBC broke their promise and didn't run our statements after all."
If Palin wants the real lowdown on the McGinniss mojo, she might want to log off of Facebook and consult with Jeffrey MacDonald. He's reachable at FCI Cumberland until April 5, 2071.
