Between Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck…hate has no boundaries

Joe McGinniss (pictured bottom right) is a writer, a pretty good one with books like “The Selling of the President,” “Fatal Vision,” and “Blind Faith” to his credit. He also just completed research on a book about Sarah Palin, living next door to her for three months on Wasilla’s Lake Lucille in Alaska. He had “hanger-on” Todd Palin in his face once but assured the family he wouldn’t cause trouble and didn’t.

MSNBC/Associated Press reports, the author hasn’t even returned to his home in Massachusetts and the quotes are already coming. One is particularly troubling but not really surprising, McGinniss saying, “…she presses a button and what comes back is hate.” He goes on to say “The people who respond when she complains about something are just so filled with hate.”

Palin put an extension on the 8-foot fence between the properties, which prompted a retort from McGinniss that “…peeping through knotholes was never part of his research.” He added that anyone who wanted to see onto the Palin could simply get a boat and park 10 yards off shore, but who would want to do that?

The writer found that some people in the area were scared of the Palins; afraid to talk for fear “…something terrible could happen to them.” But most were willing to talk, some even bringing him pie. One of McGinniss’s biggest problems was refusing the number of handguns offered to him by residents. Apparently this was wide spread everywhere he went.
The Dunning Letter can hardly wait for the book.
