Maslin Reviews McGinniss

We love a good headline. Today, the NYT comes close to the Variety gold standard (re: the 1929 stock market crash: “Wall Street Lays an Egg“), with “Sarah Palin Could See This Guy From Her House.”

It’s for Janet Maslin’s review of the Joe McGinniss bio of Sarah Palin, The Rogue. She’s not impressed by the book’s revelations, saying the main takeaway is that McGinniss got a kick out of “the fuss his mere presence has created.” The most she gives him is, “Mr. McGinniss puts forth a provocative case for doubting Ms. Palin’s account of Trig’s birth.”

The book comes out next week, as does Deer in the Headlights, a memoir from Levi Johnston, the father of Ms. Palin’s grandson.
