Turn Back the Clock: FENCE DAY was 1 Year Ago Tomorrow //UPDATE: FENCE DAY, 2011, in Scottsdale

How time flies.  Already it’s been a year since Sarah Palin accused me of peering into Piper’s bedroom window, Glenn Beck first called me a stalker and Todd Palin had a work crew double the height of the ten-foot fence between the Palins’ property and the lot on which my rented house stood.

As I write in THE ROGUE about May 25, 2010:

“All day, I hear hammering and sawing.  Todd has about twelve guys throwing up a new fence that’s roughly twice the height of the old one.  I’m all in favor of the fence.  Maybe once it’s up, Sarah will chill and we can both get on with our business.  No one brings over a blueberry pie.”

Sarah had written on Facebook the night before, “Maybe we’ll welcome him with a homemade blueberry pie tomorrow so he’ll know how friendly Alaskans are.”

Not surprisingly, she didn’t.

In fact, as tweets leaked to The Daily Caller demonstrate, Sarah’s chief enforcer, Rebecca Mansour, had a quite different idea:

May 25, 2010 5:35:46:  Time to find a way to go medieval on this McGinniss. Don’t be fooled by the light tone of the FB post. The BigBoss is so upset by this.

5:36:56:  It quite broke my heart to get the emails from her about this. She feel like big brother is watching her & her family…

16:00:56:  I was thinking…of mailing him a dead fish.

I never got the dead fish, either.  But I’d say Mansour, no doubt smiling out of the other side of her face today, is a dead duck in Palinland.

Oh, by the way, the first strong wind last fall blew down the fence.  Todd’s about as capable a builder as Sarah is a fisherwoman.



It’s been rumored since last week that Sarah and Todd have bought a new home in Scottsdale, Arizona.

I believe it. Especially after seeing this photo, sent by commenter “Jewels” to whom I’m, of course, grateful.

Looks mighty like a new fence going up around the house, doesn’t it?

I hope Todd and the gang do a better job with this one.  You think Wasilla gets windy?  Check this Fox News story about wind damage in Scottsdale last year:

And remember, Sarah, it’s an ill wind that blows nobody good.
