Sarah Palin is understandably far from pleased that writer Joe McGinniss rented the house next door to her while authoring a book about the former governor.
But stalking allegations? Really, Sarah? That's pretty low ... but from someone who demands straws that bend at speaking engagements, are you shocked?
McGinniss said on the Today show this morning that despite accusations from the political lightning rod, he's not harassing them. Quite the opposite, in fact.
"If I lived here and did something creepy, if I did what Sarah Palin is suggesting, that would be creepy," McGinniss said. "I'm not observing them at all."
"I don't care what they do in the privacy of their own home," he continued. "I'm here to talk to people who have known them for 40 years in Wasilla."
McGinniss claims he got a good deal on a rental that happens to border the Palins' property, and would have taken it if "Sarah Palin lived on the moon."
WELCOME TO WASILLA! Sarah Palin is far from pleased with her new neighbor.
True or not, the 67-year-old writer is next door, leaving the maverick concerned for her privacy and questioning McGinniss's motives ... on Facebook, natch.
"Wonder what kind of material he'll gather while overlooking Piper's bedroom, my little garden, and the family's swimming hole?" Sarah Palin wrote online.
McGinniss denies he did any of that, or that he is trying to drum up publicity for his book, claiming he told no one outside his family where he was living.
"Then Sarah hysterically puts up this Facebook page with all sorts of ugly innuendo, which frankly is revolting," he says. "She has created all the publicity."
McGinniss, known mostly as a true-crime writer, has reportedly received death threats thanks to Palin triggering outrage from right-wing media outlets.
Palin "unleashed the hounds of hell," he says, comparing her tactics to that of Nazi troopers in the '30s. Maybe he should send over a nice fruit basket?
