How dare she!

Hi, my name is Joe McGinnis

Inside the sick mind of Joe McGinnis:

I think the reason why aspects of Sarah’s personal life become relevant, in a way they would not be with other politicians, is because her persona IS her career. Sarah sells a package: Grizzly Mom, rugged Alaskan husband, a passel of great kids, all united in one great Christian family.

This is utterly and flagrantly false.

There aren’t a whole lot of politicians out there running for office with a “I am a sleazebag” campaign. What makes Sarah Palin unique? (hint: v-a-g-i-n-a)

McGinnis demonstrates classic “madonna-whore” thinking.

In Freudian psychoanalysis, a Madonna–whore complex is a psychological complex that is said to develop in the human male when he sees all women not as individuals along a continuum, but as either saintly Madonnas or debased prostitute-like personalities.

This is why he feels justified in reporting every scurrilous rumor and sleazy innuendo he can find.

If you go into your nearest “bible bookstore” and walk over to where they keep the refrigerator magnets and bumper stickers, you’ll find some that say “Christians aren’t perfect, just forgiven.”

Sarah Palin has never claimed to be perfect or to have a perfect family. In fact, she emphasizes that she has a “regular” family that is “just like yours.”

Well, not like mine I hope.


Crown Publishers spokesman Stuart Applebaum says the company is confident the reporting in Joe McGinniss’ book is “solid, reliable, and well-substantiated.” Applebaum says Crown stands behind McGinniss and the book, “The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin.”

    Joe McGinnis is so sleezy, his publisher’s insurance company had to settle with a convicted murderer who felt like McGinnis had done him wrong. When you can’t even hold the moral high ground next to a murderer, you’re a sad case indeed.

    “Every journalist who is not too stupid or too full of himself to notice what is going on knows that what he does is morally indefensible.”

    What I’d like to know is who sponsored Joe McGinnis on this mission to take down Palin. I can’t believe this was only a personal gig. Some Palin hating group(s) must have been behind it…MoveOn, Gawker, MoJo, NBC, somebody. Same people probably who were most toxic in their accusation of Palin after the Giffords shooting. Or all those people who were sent to Wasilla to dig up dirt when she was first announced as the VP candidate. Who were those people specifically, anyone know..

  4. I seem to remember a candidate whose whole raison d’etre for being in the race was his personal narrative. It was so overwhelming, it transcended parties and stuff.
