Vanity Fair’s Gossip-Girl Digs at Sarah Palin

Pages: 1 2

In part, this is the typical, head-up-the-butt, New York reporter’s view of Alaska. Gross assumes everyone in the state personally knows Sarah Palin and if they don’t talk to him … they must be afraid!

Thus, according to Gross, “(t)hey don’t want her to find out they have talked with a reporter, because of a suspicion that bad things will happen to them if she does.”

Why else wouldn’t people talk to him? It’s me — Michael Gross from Manhattan! Everyone in Alaska should want to hang with me! The fact that they don’t, he believes, is indisputable evidence of a conspiracy.

Another explanation is that not everyone in Alaska, not even everyone in Wasilla, personally knows Sarah Palin. Nor are they in awe of Manhattan or Vanity Fair. In other words, maybe Alaska is remarkably like other places.

Most psychotically insane is Gross’ rumination on why the Palins would leave their home on, I quote, “the anniversary of Sarah’s resignation.”

This is the kind of “anniversary” celebrated only by Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann and other Palin obsessives. It is not yet, as we go to press, an anniversary celebrated by Hallmark.

The fact that Michael Gross imagines the date Palin resigned is an “anniversary” anyone else in the world would notice proves only that he is a head case.

He discusses the Palins’ absence on this momentous day (in his own mind) with his fellow obsessive, Joe McGinniss — the man who moved into the house next door to the Palins for more convenient stalking.

On and on the two nutcases speculate about why the Palins are gone — because, you see, THERE MUST BE AN EXPLANATION!

Perhaps “the Palins would want assurance that no curiosity seekers would trespass,” Gross offers. But why, he asks himself, “make such a long flight”?

In the climactic scene of the article, Gross asks McGinniss, “Wouldn’t it be easier to hire a guard?”

Before giving the reply, Gross notes that McGinniss has put himself “in the frame of mind of his subject — where everything is fungible, and everyone is suspect.” So McGinniss speaks with authority. And he says: “A guard would have a story he could sell.”

Yeah, like the Midwestern bellboy. But the reader is supposed to be gasping at the strangeness of the Palins, not the strangeness of the two reporters, standing alone, staring at the Palins’ empty house on an imaginary “anniversary,” postulating theories on why the Palins aren’t there.

It turns out the Palins had simply flown to Todd’s parents’ house for the weekend. No “curiosity seekers” showed up at the house to gawk — other than the two reporters, who are utterly oblivious to the fact that the only paranoid psychotics in this story are themselves.

    If the republican party doesnt like Sarah then that tells me she is a real gem and I like her. You know, now that I think of it, the republican party didnt like Ronald Reagan either, so Sarah you keep doing what you do, please.

      That's right , the freedom to be as stupid as you wanna be … go girl !!!

  • guest

    I much prefer the high brow talk from the right. "Obama's not American, he's, like, from Hawaii! He's all anti-colonial and stuff, whatever that means."

    • tony

      It's great to see someone quoting him/herself. Well done.

    • Wideband

      Typical lib. Has no point to make, so they make stuff up. It's a wonder they restrained themselves from calling Palin a name.

  • USMCSniper

    Michael Gross was a typical panty waist mommy's boy who grew up to become an effete omega male that cannot tolerate strong women and so he still reverts to the equivalent of the childish prattle of "Mommy, I throwed mud on her!" That is what his article says to me.

    I used to travel for a living and never tipped a maid. I guess Mr Gross is attacking me too. I feel so guilty for all those maids I stiffed over the years. How will I ever live with the shame?

    As for no one talking to him, maybe he mentioned he was with Vanity Fair. I had to go to wikipedia just to see what it was about because I thought it was just a fasion rag. Alaskans probably tend to dress practically and fashion is far from practical. Here in Michigan, I laugh at idiots wearing designer coats and fancy shoes in winter.

    OK, I must have used a forbidden word in my last attempt to post.

  • Mikeymojo

    I give up. I've cut the post as much as I can. It's not offensive but I haven't been able to figure out which word is triggering the auto mod.

  • badaboo

    All anyone need do , is just let Palin make appearences and open her mouth… lol….whatever criticisms Gross may add , are basically irrelevent .

  • Beverley

    Vanity Fair be careful I won't buy you anymore. Just like I don't buy Time anymore.
