(Newser) – Sarah Palin is not so thrilled with her new next-door neighbor. A post on her Facebook page today says Joe McGinniss, who just happens to be writing a book about her, is the new renter. "Welcome, Joe! It’ll be a great summer—come borrow a cup of sugar if ever you need some sweetener. And you know what they say about 'fences make for good neighbors'? Well, we’ll get started on that tall fence tomorrow."

McGinniss has written critically of Palin before (see this piece in Portfolio from last year), and Palin hasn't forgotten. "We’re sure to have a doozey to look forward to with this treasure he’s penning. Wonder what kind of material he’ll gather while overlooking Piper’s bedroom, my little garden, and the family’s swimming hole?"
