Sarah Palin, the eternal victim nextdoor, welcomes Joe McGinniss to Wasilla

Sarah Palin had strange words for a newcomer to her neighbourhood. In a Facebook note, she mixes a sarcastic welcome with that eternal victim whining we know so well.

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!

Wow! It sounds like she's going to repeat the Letterman fiasco, this time focusing on Piper (maybe Willow's bedroom is on the other side of the house).

Sarah included a photo of the offending house:

Let's take a look at the wider area (click on pictures to enlarge):

When the Palins started building the new chateau, it was reported that they had also rented the house on the right. What an oversight! They should have rented the house on the left as well...

Our reader Armchair Jane pointed out that Sarah had said similar things about her noisy children when a resident complained about bus tours around the governor's mansion in Juneau, back in May last year:

Gov. Sarah Palin is clashing with a Juneau activist over what he calls "voyeur" bus tours past the governor's mansion that he asserts ruin the neighborhood to exploit her fame.
The governor said she welcomes tourists and "can't imagine other areas of Alaska looking at having the Governor's house nearby as a degrading irritation that invites voyeurism."

The governor said she offered to meet with Thoma "to ask if I could lessen his burden by keeping a lower profile," but he declined and suggested she work it out with the Juneau mayor instead.

"I wanted to offer him to hide Piper's trampoline further in a corner of the yard ... if it's a matter of not giving anyone anything to look at so they'll go away then I'd ask Piper to not giggle so loudly on her buoy swing or bicycle in the yard," Palin said in a written statement, referring to her 7-year-old daughter.

Sarah Palin is very keen on recycling. All her speeches use the same tired talking points, with a few googled stories and jokes to fit the venue, plus some family anecdotes, using cute little quotes from one or more of her children...

Her whining follows the same pattern, don't you think?

Letterman was a pervert who alluded to the statutory rape of 15-year-old Willow, Joe McGinniss is going to peer through Piper's bedroom window.

In Juneau, Piper giggled. In Wasilla, Trig squeals. The implication being that people find her children offensive just for behaving like children.

Sarah Palin always assumes people are thinking the worst about her family. While that may be true regarding herself and the older members of the Palin clan, she doesn't acknowledge that, she brings the younger ones into the story instead.

She also implies that people have perverted designs on her children, but nothing could be furthest from the truth.

We think Sarah Palin is a liar and a lousy mother. We will continue to expose her as such, but we have the deepest compassion and genuine concerns for her children.

Joe McGinniss may be too close for comfort, she will have to behave herself and be a better parent while he's around.

That's a tall order!

Senator Leland Yee just published a terrific press release - this man has guts, is not afraid of the Quitter Queen and refers to Palingates:

Palin Fee to CSU Reported at Over $75,000 – More Than Double What She Charged Local GOP
Tuesday, May 25, 2010

As university violates state law, information continues to trickle out

SACRAMENTO – The Modesto Bee is reporting that a Sarah Palin watchdog website has uncovered Palin’s fee to speak at California State University Stanislaus. The Palingates blog reports that Palin will be paid up to $93,000 for her upcoming visit. The amount would be more than double what Palin charged a local Republican Party in Lane County, Oregon, when she appeared at an event for $35,000, according to documents accessed on the Oregon Secretary of State website.

“If these figures are accurate, clearly CSU got a bad deal and Sarah Palin gouged California students,” said Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco). “Celebrities should not be trying to line their own pockets at the expense of students, especially at a time when our public higher education system is in such dire straits.”

According to sources, the university transferred two payments of $37,500 each to the Washington Speakers Bureau – the entity in which the university contracted for the Palin event. In addition to the $75,000 speaking fee, the university is paying $18,000 for Palin to receive a hotel suite, first class airfare or a private Lear jet, and “bendable straws,” among other expenses.

“If Ms. Palin truly cared about our students, she should have waved her speaker’s fee or at least not overcharged,” said Yee. “Every dollar that goes to Palin is another dollar not going to the students at Stanislaus, who have already seen their scholarships lost this year. This is just the latest in a long series of bad decisions by CSU foundations and auxiliaries which demonstrate why we need greater transparency and accountability.”
