DougJ noted Palin’s bizarre and offensive rant against Joe McGinnis, and I think people are missing why she did what she did- she and Todd are afraid. That’s why she insinuated McGinness is a pedophile there to perv on her daughter and unleashed her cult on him.
The Palins are a primitive type, and everything they do publicly falls into the fight or flight rules. Media questions are too hard, run from the press and only issue statements via Facebook and other controlled mediums. Look bad in an interview, and attack the interviewer for bias. Your lies and nonsense start to add up, flee from your job. And on and on and on.
But now, McGinnis dares to move to Alaska after having shopped around a book on the oil industry in that state, and it is pretty clear why the Palins reacted the way they did. They’re afraid, and they are lashing out. It has worked before, and they hope it will again.
