Sarah Palin: I Always Feel Like, Somebody's Watching Me.......
Sarah Palin erects giant fence to keep author at bay
Published On Fri May 28 2010

Mark Thiessen The Associated Press


WASILLA, ALASKAFormer Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has erected a 14-foot-high fence at her home in Wasilla, making good on a promise to prevent her new neighbour a writer working on a book about her from peering in.

The brown-plank wall has caused a sensation on conservative airwaves and attention online. In live-and-let-live Wasilla?: No real ruckus, according to Mayor Verne Rupright.

No crime has been reported, he said Thursday. If Palin wants to build a fence on her property, he said, thats her right.

On Monday, Palin took to Facebook to welcome author Joe McGinniss, whod previously written a critical magazine story on the 2008 Republican Party vice-presidential nominee. Palin said he was renting a house next door for the next five months or so and wondered what hed gather while overlooking Pipers bedroom, my little garden, and the familys swimming hole? ........(more)

1. Now wait, I'm confused.
Yeah I'm confused a lot, but isn't Palin's whole shtick getting people to watch her?

8. Now that's a funny joke.
Someone who puts herself on center stage and on TV every chance she can mug for the camera should feel watched.

:rofl:

I hope she realizes what a fool she is making of herself with those kind of remarks.

9. I she buying tin foil hats for the whole family ...
Seems prudent considering the circumstances. :tinfoilhat: I wonder why she thinks anyone wants to watch her? Most of us don't want to be bored to death. It is not very heroic and well, it is boring.

14. "Please don't watch me."
It's the oldest trick in the book. It's used by those who want to be watched.

17. The owner of the house sought out the writer because they were pissed at the Palins
Edited on Fri May-28-10 07:13 PM by underpants
http://crooksandliars.com/susie-madrak/ha-sarah-palins-...



"A woman was renting her house and sought out the author because the Palins had crossed her (owed her money for renovations she had done at their request and never paid her for). So she knew McGinniss was writing the book and found him and offered him the house."

The Palins apparently tried renting the place all winter to head off any Liberals. Not only did her neighbor refuse, she called up McGinniss and was like, "Hey, got this awesome house right across from Sarah Palin. Want?" There's no purer form of small-town drama than the stiffed contractor out for non-monetary revenge. Unlike those in New York or LA, where the elitists settle their labor disputes with fancy lawyers, small-town builders have the means to hit back in way more satisfying ways. (Momof3wildkids points out that the email may actually be saying that Palin asked her neighbor to fix up her own house, promised to pay for it, then stiffed her in the end. Nervy!)

Palin's rise was based on a creation myth that had her springing from a fantasy Real America that loves guns and embryos and hates immigrants and socialists. But the Real America Palin really inhabits just wants her to stop acting like a diva and to cough up the 1500 bucks or whatever she owes them for building her deck. Do not cross your people, Sarah Palin! Your speaking career and presidential prospects don't stand a chance against their hard-won sense of frontier justice. Installing a sworn enemy in your own backyard is just the beginning. They will destroy you

19. Judging from Sarah's past sense of entitlement, she's probably waiting for someone
to give her a new house with more privacy. If I was her neighbor I'd be pissed that her house was too big for the lot, her notoriety brought unwanted attention to the neighborhood and she didn't take adequate steps to keep the neighbors out of the mess.


If I was her neighbor I'd also be flinging our dog shit over the fence on a daily basis, too. ;)

23. I've called in the Rockwell


http://www.afn.org/~afn30091/songs/r/rockwell-somebodys...



Somebody's Watching Me - Rockwell

I'm just an average guy with an average life
I work from nive to five, hey hell I pay the price
But I want is to be left alone in my average home
But why do I always feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone

CHORUS:
I always feel that somebody's watchin' me
And I have no privacy
I always feel that somebody's watchin' me
Is it just a dream?

When I come home at night
I bolt the door real tight
People call me on the phone I'm trying to avoid
Well, can the people on TV see me or am I just paranoid

CHORUS

When I'm in the shower, I'm afraid to wash my hair
I might open my eyes and find someone standing there
People say I'm crazy, just a little touched
But maybe showers remind me of Psycho too much
That's why...

I always feel like somebody's watching me
Who's playing tricks on me
I always feel like somebody's watching me
Tell me it can't be

I don't know anymore
Are the neighbors watching me
Well is the mailman watching me
And I don't feel safe anymore, oh what a mess
I wonder who's watching me now?
Who?
The IRS?

I always feel like somebody's watching me
Who's playing tricks on me
I always feel like somebody's watching me
I can't enjoy my tea!
