Palin to Sue Random House and Creep McGinniss for Defamation

Read Allahpundit’s post for the details, he’s the one who’s done all the foot work.

Short version is that Stalker McGinniss published a book through Random House filled, apparently, with utter made up from scratch bullshit, but the clincher is that the barge-arsed fucknozzle was dumb enough to admit as much in emails that were later made public.

Allahpundit is absolutely right that defamation lawsuits are tricky things for public figures, and also right that the Palins have quite a bit of ammo for it given McGinniss’ advanced state of mental retardation in putting his own lack of evidence for his statements on the record. And we also can’t say that we disagree in his analysis when he says that they have, materially speaking, little to gain from an author who’s written a book that is already bombing and quite a bit to lose if their suit fails, not because they’re wrong in claiming that the book is defamatory, but because they don’t quite manage to clear the quite high bar for success where such suits are concerned.

He’s also right when he points out that, should they fail to prove malicious intent and thus “lose”, the take-away in the public eye is going to be “Palin ‘lost’, therefore the book must be true!”.

But he misses one point: At some point we have to start striking back at the concerted, determined, defamatory offensive from the lying left and hit them where it hurts. We have to strike them, and strike them hard, in order to even hope to make it stop. Discretion is the better part of valor in a lot of situations, but at some point you have to stop constantly retreating in vain hopes that you might live to fight another day, because if that is your guiding principle, then you’ll only find yourself on the run for the rest of your pathetic life.

You have to, at some point, draw the line in the sand and declare yourself all in.

Whether this is where the Palins need to do so is their choice, not ours, but they’ll find no lack of support from us if they do.

Of course, ultimately, if somebody like Slimebucket McGinniss were to attack our family like that, there would be no need for lawyers to be involved.

The only motion “filed” from defendant would be:

“Please, no, not in the face. My family would like an open casket funeral.”

The Palins, as far as we’re concerned, could go on a six month killing spree after all of the vicious lies, insults and attacks they’ve suffered from liberals and we would never, ever, not in a million years, vote “guilty” if we were on the jury.

We’re sick of it.

We’re the ones with the force to stop those communist fucks, we’ve given them ample warning, we’ve given them more opportunities to behave like human beings than they could ever earn in a thousand lifetimes, and we’re the ones on the retreat?

Fuck that.

Not one step further. It ends here.

Ni shagu nazad.

Thatisall.

Well, I suppose given comrade SCOFAM Obamas positions on all things, quoting Stalin is not inapropriate :em01:

As long as they killed leftist, all I’d want is for them to get a medal.

Carol Burnett sued the National Enquirer and won on less evidence of malice than this.
Any time an author makes shit up about a person that is inflamatory and defamatory, in my opinion that is prima facie evidence of malice. I hope she sues and I hope she takes his ass to the cleaners.
I would also hope that the judge in the case would order Fuckwad McGinniss to write and have published, at McGinniss’ own expense if necessary, a new book apologizing to the Palins, and to delineate each and every instance of when McGinniss made up stuff.

“Please, no, not in the face. My family would like an open casket funeral.”

Followed by “I don’t wanna make the Baby Jesus smile, even if I don’t believe in him” !

That was the fuck that bought the house next to theirs, in the hopes that he could see the “Skyclad Conservative Coven” meeting once a month in the backyard. Now that would’ve created headlines and with pictures, that would have been sweeeeet….my bad.

Ogrre beat me to it (above). Carol Burnett was exactly who I was thinking of, as one who successfully sued, and won, in a defamation case, against the Enquirer no less. A paper, no stranger to, cases of this type. The Pailns are, IMNSHO, in a much better position than Burnett was, and I think Random House will be considerably more gun shy than the Enquirer. Time will tell.

Some of those emails were between McStalker and that sea cow Trig Truther who IIRC was a big part of all the false ethics allegations that cost Sarah at least half a million dollars from her own purse. I’d find a way to tie that disgusting hag into the lawsuit and ruin her for good and forever.

Given the fact that McStalker had to shell out $375k to a CONVICTED MURDERER as an OOC for -defamation-, I think that the Palins have a good shot. After all, this is civil court, where McStalker’s past behavior is perfectly fair game to establish malicious publication.
