The Todd Palin Legal Defense Fund

A source who doesn’t need to hide behind a cloak of anonymity:

“This is a man who has been relentlessly stalking my family to the point of moving in right next door to us to harass us and spy on us to satisfy his creepy obsession with my wife. His book is full of disgusting lies, innuendo, and smears. Even The New York Times called this book ‘dated, petty,’ and [said] that it ‘chases caustic, unsubstantiated gossip.’”
Todd Palin

During my trip to Wasilla last year, I told Todd Palin that if he had shot Levi Johnston, no jury in the world would have convicted him, and his wife’s poll numbers would have gone up.

Our conversation was informal and off-the-record, so readers are left to imagine Todd’s reaction, but certainly the Palins can’t be held responsible for every crazy thing a journalist says. (It was, after all, merely a hypothetical.) And neither can the Palins be blamed for what I’m suggesting now.

Joe McGinniss deserves The Mother of All Ass-Whuppings, and Todd Palin ought to give him exactly what he deserves.

So I’m asking readers to go make a $25 donation to SarahPAC to help defray Todd’s legal expenses when he shows up at McGinniss’s first book signing and pounds that scurvy worm into a bloody pulp.

Please give $25 to SarahPAC, so that we can bail Todd Palin out on that assault charge — and then fly him to the next Joe McGinniss book signing to deliver yet another brutal ass-whupping.

Lather, rinse, repeat.

Just give $25 to SarahPAC, you see, and we’ll cover Todd Palin’s legal expenses and fly him to wherever Joe McGinniss appears in public, turning McGinniss’s book tour into a nationwide beatdown tour.

After McGinniss gets out of the hospital from his first ass-whupping, he’ll probably get a restraining order against Todd. Still, Random House will be forced to hire armed security to protect Creepy Joe because, hey, what’s a restraining order to an insulted husband who’s got thousands of loyal supporters donating $25 each to cover his legal expenses?

Bonus suggestion: Sarah PAC should hire a documentary crew to chronicle Todd Palin’s “One Nation Joe McGinniss Ass-Whupping Tour.”

Proceeds from sales of the DVD would go to defray Joe McGinniss’s medical bills. “Compassionate conservatism” and all that.

    What a joke.  Take that $25 dollars and donate it to something that matters. 1500 homes were just destroyed in Texas and those families have nothing. I think there’s a fund for widows and children of dead American soldiers somewhere. Oh, here it is…

    SarahPAC is a joke. She’ll never hold public office again. Her and Todd paid 500,000k in legal fees fighting off a barrage of ethics violation and bribery charges. Just like her mentor Ted Stevens and the rest of Alaska’s “Corrupt Bastards Club.” 5 Alaskan state representatives were indicted on corruption charges.

    This entire article is an exercise in hypocrisy and supporters of it obviously have poor moral values; the essence of human waste. The Todd Palin Legal Defense Fund…. he’s a millionaire. Go get some water and wash the wool out of your eyes you bunch of gullible hicks.

    The anti-President and Armed-Forces Commander-In-Chief-Elect Sarah Louise Ronald Wilson Reagan Heath Palin brigades have exausted their amunition and emptied their garbage cans on her and President-Elect and Mr Todd Palin are still standing head and shoulders and arms and legs over their every detractor. 

    Meanwhile, down at our 1600 Pann place, the thinnest-skinned most pathologically-narcissistic mummy’s baby boy is cowering gutlessly behind his anti-President-Elect Palin Brigades. 

    President-Elect Palin’s for the taking!

    But by all means, please keep sending money to SarahPAC. There’s a lot of America the Palins haven’t vacationed in yet.

    This is really a weird little fantasy you have going on here.  It seems just a little bit over the “fan of” line – more into the “worship” area.    It’s kind of interesting, like a scary bug is interesting if you know what I mean.

    Really sad how many people on here defend a scumbag they’ve never met and criticize a guy who’s spent infinitely more time around said scumbag than they have.

    She’s a liar, she’s a quitter and a corrupt POS. 
    You guys probably all think Bachmann, Perry and Romney are awesome candidates for POTUS, huh?

    “Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.”

    Above quote sums up my take, Mr. McCain. While I too loathe what McGinniss  has written, I would never advocate violence as a response, and you doing so is beyond the pale. Shame on you!
