Quoted: Joe McGinniss not calling Sarah Palin a "Nazi" but...

"I'm not calling her a Nazi, but that's the same kind of tactic that the Nazi troopers used in Germany in the '30s and I don't think there's any place for it America."

-- Joe McGinniss on Sarah Palin during a "Today" interview on Tuesday. The feud between the biographer and Palin heated up after she accused her new neighbor of stalking; the Wasilla paper warned him that Alaska law allows "deadly force" in protection of property.

If only the Nazi troopers had just built a 14-foot fence.

Joe obviously needs to read some more history books.

Joe is right. Sarah's sleezy inuendo, coupled with the call to arms by the newspaper, are wholely reminiscent of the tactics used by the Nazis. The Palins and their minions are hideous people.

Using the word "nazi" just shows what an idiot this man is. What he is doing is not right and any decent, clear thinking person knows this. You don't stalk a person's family. Write your worthless book and move on. He is just another loon liberal who is obsessed with Sarah Palin.

Sarah lovers: Explain, please how moving in next door to someone makes you a stalker? How does writing a book make you a loony liberal? How does sitting on your back deck make you a pedophile? If she was so concerned about her family's safety, why didn't Sarah comment when a houseful of druggies lived next door to her? Sarah's a publicity-seeking whackjob.

Joe McGinniss knows exactly why he moved into the house next door to Sarah Palin and anyone who thinks otherwise is blind. This is about a family who can no longer feel relaxed in thier own home because the neighbor next door is going to be listening and watching thier every move and that's just plain wrong. I don't blame Sarah Palin for her reaction and if the shoe were on the other foot, neither would you. JOE MCGINNISS HAS NO SHAME AND IS JUST PLAIN WRONG.

Why should anyone seeking fame & publicity think that any part of their lives will remain a closed book? The Palins can't have it both ways as long as they remain in the spotlight.

Sarah's delighted to see the cameras when it suits her, but terrified that the world will see what she's really made of. What a worthless human (?) being she is.

Shortly before quitting as governor of Alaska, Michael Carey of the Anchorage Daily News wrote an excellent article explaining what many Alaskans have known for some time - that the only person Sarah Palin has ever cared about is Sarah Palin. Carey then went on to predict that she would become a pop culture figure similar to Aimee Semple McPherson, the legendary evangelist of the 1920's whose tumultuous personal life became fodder for her critics.

I just hope that Todd's fence hasn't blocked Mr. McGinniss' views of Russia.

Please wave hello to Vladimir for us Joe!
