The Rogue: Sarah Palin or Joe McGinniss?
Posted on Sep 15, 2011
It will be next week before Joe McGinniss, the author and so-called journalist who moved in next door to Sarah Palin and her family more than a year ago, will officially release his book about the former Alaska governor, and already his work has received scathing reviews.
Reviews of “The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin” all seem to agree on one major point: that any revelations McGinniss made were undermined by his use of unnamed sources such as “a friend” and “one resident.”
And McGinniss has made many revelations, both serious and salacious, and most seemingly lean toward the latter. He suggested that Palin had snorted cocaine, had “a fetish for black guys for a while” during which she once slept with NBA star Glen Rice, and had an affair with husband Todd Palin’s business partner in retaliation for Todd’s own infidelity.
A review of the book in The New York Times said the most quotable lines call Palin “a clown, a nitwit, a rabid wolf and a lap dancer — and those aren’t the parts that assail her as a wife and parent.” —BF
