Creepy Stalker

Joe McGinniss, ‘journalist’, has moved in next door to the Palin family in Wasilla, Alaska. He plans to write a book about them, and moved to Wasilla for five months to gather primary source material. At least, that’s what he says. What Sarah says is something completely different. From her facebook page:

“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!

– Sarah Palin”

Well, she quickly got a snapshot from her backyard of the creepy stalker on his desk. He’s clearly unaware that she’s there, or he would have gone back inside. Here are some pictures:

Top left is an aerial shot of the houses (thanks, Google!). Palin’s is the larger one on the right, and McGinnis is renting the one on the left.

Top right is a shot of the Palin’s house from Lucile Lake. You can just see the house to the left in this picture, and a small reddish shed.

The bottom left photo is the one the Palin’s took from their backyard. The guy on the deck is apparently Joe McGinniss, the creepy stalker, although the photographer should have sneaked up closer to make that clearer. Amateurish. You can see the same shed in the foreground.

And the bottom right photo is of the fence that the Palins built so that McGinniss couldn’t spy on them as easily. I hope that they built that fence all the way to the water, because otherwise he might still get a clear shot of the Palins from the backyard. This last picture actually looks like McGinniss might have taken it from his side of the fence. From the quality of the photo, it looks like McGinniss has some specialized stalker camera. It’s scary that he’s already taking picture of his neighbor’s house! What kind of a creep does that?
