OUR COLD WELCOME
October 24, 2010: Weve arrived or I have. Half my film crew have been arrested and deported. Everything is going fine at Seattle airport until they find out we are doing a film about Sarah Palin. The authorities go mad. They search our bags and detain my two researchers. Sarah, 22, is subjected to a urine test against her wishes just in case she is pregnant and tries to get citizenship by giving birth on US soil. Her colleague Mark is spreadeagled against the wall and given a rectal search before being handcuffed. The 25-year-old spends the night on a filthy floor littered with cigarette butts. They are both sent back to England, supposedly because they dont have the right visas.
My cover for the documentary is blown. Discretion was the key. But thanks to our airport kerfuffle, the Wasilla branch of Homeland Security an organisation dedicated to protecting America from terrorist activity (are my films that bad?) has been told all about us. Instead of slowly ingratiating myself into Sarah Palins home community, I have landed in a blaze of notoriety. As I lie on my bed in the deserted Best Western Inn with a view of the frozen Lake Lucile and Sarahs peach-coloured, two- storey home looming tantalisingly in the distance, I am pretty dejected. There isnt even a mini bar....

Nick, my advice is to get into rehab., ASAP.
LOL Sarah Palin reaches out from Alaska and harasses a film crew in Washington.

Pretty obvious he’s only there because of his dark hate filled soul.
I don’t believe a word of the article.
This Bloomfield fellow is filled with hate and lies.
Sooooo...this is a new fiction writer?
LOL. I think he confused his nightlife with the airport experience.
I’m thinking the house wasn’t a meth lab, given the content of the article, it had to be LSD.
Not an especially good one.

You should check out the backwoods of Bill Clinton Country, or the dirty little secrets of Bill Richardson country (New Mexico).
I’m sure Chicago is also a very sweet area with no scandals to mar it.
Rahm Emmanuel country? It’s “Cats” on crack.
This is met with an audible gasp from the packed auditorium. Sarah looks startled. And I am escorted from the building.
Is that not the Q&A where she responds to that question by suggesting, 'let's ask the people here'?
Her quick and effective response didn't seem an indication of being startled to me.
The woman gets death threats as offen as I receive calls, e-mails, mail from GOP candidates asking for money. Maybe that has something to do with it fool.
I hear your muezzin calling you to Adhan.....chop-chop!
Um.....smoking hasn't been allowed in Seatac for many, many years.
Personally, I enjoyed the time I spent in Alaska, loved the people (especially that goth girl, before my celibacy oath.. ahem...). Nick sounds like he's got issues.
THAT place is dangerous.
I lived there for a few years. The only reason I lived through it is because all the mestizos thought I was scary crazy. And maybe, when I was there, I was. ;)
I left after a fall off a mountain during a blizzard and losing some body parts. Everything there has a stinger in it's tail or it's mouth, or eats or stomps human.
All in all, I did like NM. But I'm not going back soon.
We were just given a preview of what the documentary might have contained. A very vivid imagination given to fantasy.
This Broomfield is the same punk who several years ago made the fictionalized “documentary” about the Haditha incident where Marines were ambushed by insurgents and responded. I guess he wanted to make a fictionalized “documentary” about Palin.
