There has always been a certain creepiness associated with the left’s coverage of Sarah Palin. If it didn’t reach its nadir with Andrew Sullivan’s obstetrical obsession, it has surely — one hopes — reached it now, with the news that pulp journalist Joe McGinniss, who is working on a critical book about Palin, has moved into the house next door to the family’s Alaska home.
Palin announced on her facebook page that McGinniss’s new digs overlook daughter Piper’s bedroom and the family swimming pool. Great.
Nor is this the first time McGinniss has shown a willingness to drop serious bank for the privilege of being close to the former Alaska governor. Last year, he bid over $60k at a charity auction for the chance to have dinner with Palin, falling just short of winning.
