Joe McGinniss has for quite some time had an unhealthy fixation on Sarah Palin, but this is just plain creepy:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who has long had a contentious relationship with the media, lashed out today against a writer she says has moved in next door while he writes a book about her.

Joe McGinniss, a non-fiction novelist known for works including the book The Selling of the President, an account of the 1968 Nixon presidential campaign, has rented a house next to Palin’s Alaska home for about five months, Palin writes in a Facebook note.

“He moved up all the way from Massachusetts to live right next to us – while he writes a book about me,” Palin writes. “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?”

McGinniss is reportedly writing a book about Palin, slated for release in 2011.

Here’s Palin’s Facebook post, along with a picture of the rental house that allows you to see how close it is (caption mine):


Hopefully the Palins plan to do an awful lot of skeet shooting and motorcycle riding this summer… way over close to that side of the yard and at about 2 o’clock in the morning.

    One wonders if the owner of the house knew Joe was a Sarah stalker before renting to him?

    True, you'd think the Palins would have a little "chat" with the owner of the house.

    Yes, I think a "chat" is definitely called for in this situation.

    What a perv.

    Is his nickname "Nick"?

    Palin said on Hannity(radio) that the older house was “grandfathered” on the property line setback. The Palins rented the house last summer to keep Joe Goobers away.They were unable to contact the lady that owns it this year to do the same.

    The Palins are building a 14ft. wooden fence between the houses.No doubt it will be dedicated to John McCain.
