    Third, not particularly. Just because some other douchebag thought to capitalize on some peoples irrational hatred for the Palin's by attempting to put someone into the building that will likely harrass them and the neighborhood and make their lives continually on edge doesn't mean that the jackass writer has to take said option. Again, unless it was the only option in the town which is reasonable to assume its not.
    It's interesting how you put so much weight on the hysterical accusations of a known liar and condemn this man without making the slightest effort to see what the facts here are. And considering those facts are right in this thread that is quite the partisan feat. Doncha think?

    Ahh... so him moving next door to her was because.... ?? Why was it again? To NOT take pictures of them or spy on them in the home and yard?

    Well, if he has no desire to, and doesn't plan on taking pictures of or watching them in their home and yard, then why did he move in next door?

    Partisan anything coming from you is rather rich. Also, simply because someone's not on the national stage so isn't having every moment and every utterance disected by throngs of hyper partisans who live to condemn him and thus I've not heard any news reports about his "lying" doesn't mean the man is an angle. Common Sense says there's more than one place available in teh city. Common Sense says then there must be some logical reason why he would take such an offer. The only conclussions so far that I can grasp is that he wants to be close enough to continually and repeatedly examine every segment of Palin's life from her home life to her neighbors and their views and wants to continually observe it OR he wants to intimidate and harass as an extra bonus for a woman he obviously has great distaste for while invading into her private life and putting her in a lose/lose situation ala the "Peace Flotilla" in Palestine where she either accepts his rather disturbing invasion into her and her families lives OR she speaks up about it and he plays innocent which is believed as gospel truths by the hyper partisan liberals that foam at the mouth at the mere mention of Sarah Palin...IE his prime book buying base.

    If you have another logical, realistic reason to put forth as to why he'd purposefully choose to reside next door to the woman he's writing the book about other than those two above, I'd love to hear it.

    The house was offered to him by the owner.

    Is it too much to ask you to read the article

    Yeah, I read it. Still didn't answer my question. Why choose THAT house if not to spy on them?

    Does that mean he's intending to sit there and take pictures of them in their house? Not necessarily, though I think its absolutely dishonest and patheticaly transparent of ones bias to attempt to claim that such would be unquestioanbly wrong to suggest is a possability. However one does not need to be photographed none stop for harassment to essentially be happening. To have a guy living next door who is openly and clearly expressing the desire to, without mincing words, ridicule and degrade you and in the process plans to encroach upon the lives of your entire group of neighbors while in your immediete vicinity is understandably uncomfortable.

    I see this as nothing but a purely dickish douche move on the part of the writer at best, and a disturbing and pathetic desperation to intimidate and harrass the Palins at worst.
    let's see if i can translate this
    the writer is not expected to locate himself within close proximity of his subject
    that is especially true if the writer is not expected to write a puff piece about the subject
    and residing in an adjoing property is dickish, and intimidating and harrassing toward his subject

    somebody pines for the former soviet union to insist on imposing such restrictions on one's travel

    look at what has happened thus far
    caribou barbie's response to his tenancy has already given him material for the first chapter of the book
    as a writer, he should want to be close to his subject
    he should want to be able to observe them, coming and going
    that's how he will gather the material for his book
    as well as inviting people palin has pissed off around wasilla. those interviewees may be very delighted to allow palin to see them visiting with the author
    his decision to move next door was a very wise PR move
    look at how many folks will now be insterested in a book they would likely have not known about but for this brouhaha*

    It's not exactly new territory for you either.

    So, you automatically assume he's lying, right?
    Isn't that what you call "rich"?

    Don't you think if he had ever done anything that the Barbies are whining about that that would have been reported on by now? Did you bother to look for any such behavior from this guy before you jumped to the conclusion that he will act a certain way? And you call me partisan? Seriously?


    Common Sense says there's more than one place available in teh city. Common Sense says then there must be some logical reason why he would take such an offer. The only conclussions so far that I can grasp is that he wants to be close enough to continually and repeatedly examine every segment of Palin's life from her home life to her neighbors and their views and wants to continually observe it OR he wants to intimidate and harass as an extra bonus for a woman he obviously has great distaste for while invading into her private life and putting her in a lose/lose situation ala the "Peace Flotilla" in Palestine where she either accepts his rather disturbing invasion into her and her families lives OR she speaks up about it and he plays innocent which is believed as gospel truths by the hyper partisan liberals that foam at the mouth at the mere mention of Sarah Palin...IE his prime book buying base.
    Common sense? R U joking? You try to come off as being "fair minded" and use assumptions as "common sense"?

    The only people I see "foaming at the mouth" are people like you posting that this guy has criminal intentions yet,
    none of you have provided one bit of evidence to support such an asine assumption.

    If you have another logical, realistic reason to put forth as to why he'd purposefully choose to reside next door to the woman he's writing the book about other than those two above, I'd love to hear it.
    And what would make me think you would look at any other "logical" reasons when you've gone out of your way to intentionally ignore any and all logical reasons to NOT crucify this guy?

    Again, read the articles linked to in this very thread and see what this guy has said. (The house was offered to him and the owner made him promise to respect Palin's privacy.) Then, and only then, will I listen to your "assumptions" or "common sense" about this guy's intentions.

    I'll type this slowly so it doesn't get missed.

    The... house... was... offered... to... him.

    Do you get it now? He did not "choose" that house.

    I don't even think he was "looking" for anything in Wasilla, or even Alaska, when the owner offered this house to him. And what good journalist would turn down such an offer? Let's be real here and get off the Palin hysterical tour.
