not too concerned however because I’m not alone. Hundreds, maybe thousands suffer from this affliction. Even Garry Trudeau who draws the comic strip “Doonesbury” was sucked into the giant Palin vortex. It’s like a giant black hole sucking up everything in its path. We’re doomed I tell ya, doomed.
This all started very innocently some time ago when author Joe McGinniss decided that he wanted to write a book about Sarah Palin, moved to Wasilla, Alaska and rented a house next door to the Palin’s. How innocent is THAT!
So McGinniss spends some time there and finishes his book entitled, “Rogue: Searching For The Real Sarah Palin.” (Random House) and now excerpts of it are all over the place. I for one didn’t even know that Sarah was missing or that anyone was searching for her. Sure hope they find her.
So Trudeau, in his daily comic strip, “Doonesbury” has been highlighting excerpts from McGinniss’ book, and, because I read “Doonesbury,” have been once again sucked into yet another Sarah Palin non-story.
So what to do? Obviously, a bit curious about all the “he said, she said” stuff, I looked over some of the excerpts from the book. (that’s three times I’ve used the word “excerpts” in this blog which is strange considering I haven’t used that word in years)
Todd Palin, Sarah’s husband labeled McGinniss as, “ill-informed,” “cold-blooded,” “narcissistic,” and “vengeful.” Do ya suppose he doesn’t like this guy. My guess anyhow.
Some excerpts, (4th time) from the book claim that Sarah used cocaine a while back, and most frightening of all the revelations, got very upset when she had a house guest stay at her home and discovered that there was baby oil in their bedroom. HOLY CRAP!!! Baby oil!! Todd says, ” Sarah wants you out. She’s really upset thinkin’ you’re in there having sex with baby oil.”
I’d be upset too Todd. Everybody knows that if you’re gonna have sex you use K-Y Jelly and NOT baby oil. Damn perverts.
Another excerpt (5th time) is that prior to her marriage to Todd she had an affair with former NBA star Glen Rice. Ok…so who gives a rats ass about that? She also lobbied for millions in Federal earmarks for her town and state. Um…is this the same Sarah Palin who’s against federal spending? I must be mistaken.
McGinniss says that Palin was overly driven by her evangelical Christian faith and ousted aides who did not share her beliefs and also censored books in the local library. Most likely the reason my own book is not on the shelf of the Wasilla Public Library. It has Nazi’s in it and I’m sure Sarah does not like Nazis. I’m not crazy about them myself, but stories about Nazis usually make for great reading. “The Covert Chamber” just in case you like reading about Nazis.
Palin: “McGinniss was an unwanted stalker peering at her children including my nine year old daughter Piper.”
Hmmm. So if I rent a house next to someone and happen to gaze out of my window and see kids walking around next door that makes me a stalker? Geez…..
(NOTE) Never look out of my window if kids are outside playing.
McGinniss has received death threats from Palin loyalists and some of his supporters have offered him fire arms to protect himself. One of them was Verne Rupright who succeeded Palin as Wasilla mayor. He might wanna offer Gary Trudeau some arms as well. Maybe even “fire” arms.
Ya see folks, you just can’t go ahead and write a book about someone as famous as Sarah Palin and expect not to get death threats. It’s the American way. Write something that someone doesn’t agree with and they’ll kill ya. Kinda like, “Hey, if you so much as perform an abortion and kill an innocent unborn child, I’m gonna kill ya.” Makes sense to me.
Reminds me of novelist Salman Rushdie who penned the book, “The Satanic Verses” back in 1988 which drew violent protests from the Muslim community along with death threats. WAIT!! That was over in Iran. How silly of me….those things don’t happen in America…we’re a civilized society aren’t we?
“Hey MisfitWisdom, you and Trudeau betta stop writin’ about dis stuff and Palin or I’m gonna kill ya both.”
“Um….ok….sorry. I was just trying to make a comparison between us and other countries. We’re civilized people and don’t make death threats to anyone writing a book about a celebrity that we all love and cherish. Obviously I was mistaken about those death threats. I apologize.”
“Apology accepted. And I don’t wanna see anything else but good stuff about Palin or Dick Cheney either.”
“Dick Cheney? What about Dick Cheney….I never even mentioned him.”
“I know, but he wrote a book too and it’s all factual stuff about when he was President and ran the country and everybody didn’t know that he was the one actually running the country.”
“Cheney was President and ran the country? What about George W. Bush, wasn’t HE the President?”
“SEE…there ya go, spreadin’ lies and untruths again. Am I gonna hafta kill ya now?”
“Um….no…sorry….I’m just a bit uninformed….that’s all. You’ll have to excuse me now, gotta put a call in to Verne Rupright and ask him for a favor…………….VERNE!!!! HELLLLLLLLLP!!!!”

I assume Palin and Cheney supporters as well as any Iranians will not be donating. However, if Joe McGinniss is reading this, I’d sure appreciate a few bucks for plugging your book.
