130. Palin has been using her kids forever on the main stage.
Piper is with her wherever she goes and Trig isn't far behind. That doesn't make her right. I have no doubt that having the youngest kids with her may be desirable and maybe better for them in some ways. But on stage constantly???

However, she always has them glued to her side and out front. She doesn't seem to have much respect for privacy for them. People are constantly seeing as much as McGinnis will probably see.

Unless he has the house bugged and has cameras trained on them, he is a neighbor. If he writes about how they mow the grass or what clothes they wear, then he will look more than silly.

Her behavior towards him has already shown him a great deal about her character. That was more insight that he got directly from her than he would have gotten second hand by talking to other people. McGinnis could watch her house closely for months and never have that much direct knowledge.

She exposed part of her character. He didn't have to glean anything to get that.
