It was certainly nice of the Conde Nast people to give washed up hack Joe McGinniss a living. Conde Nast is so anti-Sarah, they use all of their magazines to go after her. They were so nice to Joe, they even published his drivel on the cover of Portfolio, right before it went under. Joe thinks Sarah is a dummy for not letting Exxon/Mobil build the Alaska pipeline. Well, Sarah didn't want the big oil majors to control both the production and distribution of this fuel. Boy Sarah is so stupid, she didn't want to give the major oil companies even more leverage over Alaska politics.
Anyway, Joe McGinniss is so washed up you have to go back to the early 90's to even get a negative review of his body of work. At that time, he wrote a book about Ted Kennedy, which some critics felt stole from other books.
Now Joe is writing for The Daily Beast- controlled by Barry Diller, and edited by Tina Brown. Joe is aghast that Sarah is taking a plane from Rochester New York to Washington State. She is too fresh. Thats unfair. Joe fondly remembers when he too used to have a publisher that sent him on planes to book signings. Now poor Joe has to get into the door by promising to write negative Sarah pieces. He probably has to share a bus now with senior citzens going to the local casino- hoping it stops close by his editor's office.
In much the same vein, the Huffington Post has an article about Sarah Palin "quitting" a charity race early. Wow. Are these people digging at the bottom of the smear pile? Could you imagine Arianna Huffington in a race with Sarah Palin. Arianna Huffington would probably throw up her arugula and brie if she had to open her limo's door by herself.
