Sarah Palin biographer Joe McGinniss may never have seen this coming. In this surreal world, a stranger — faux Fox News reporter Roland Hedley from the comic strip “Doonesbury” — moves in next to McGinniss. The snooping khaki-clad interloper sets up surveillance. Perhaps most unnerving, the stranger begins hectoring the author with back-porch taunts: “Moving next to Palin was seriously creepy,” he says. “How does it feel to be stalked, stalker?” But the fictional character’s arrival in McGinniss’s real life marked the beginning of a beautiful relationship. This month, Doonesbury’s creator, Garry Trudeau, has partnered with McGinniss for a cartoon collaboration. Check out the funnies and you'll see Hedley reading excerpts from McGinniss’s bio, “The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin,” ahead of its Sept. 20 release date.
