Skip to comments.Excerpts from Levi Johnston's Vanity Fair Interview
Posted on 09/02/2009 7:36:16 AM PDT by redk
Levi Johnston tells editors at Vanity Fair about the off-camera life of the woman who almost became vice president, revealing that the Palin family's home life was very different from what was presented in the mainstream media. Even before she was nominated, Johnston writes, there wasn't much parenting in that house. Sarah doesn't cook, Todd doesn't cookthe kids would do it all themselves: cook, clean, do the laundry, and get ready for school. Most of the time Bristol would help her youngest sister with her homework, and I'd barbecue chicken or steak on the grill.

This is from the kid whose mother is a druggie? Yeah. He’s believable.
Oh the horrors of having your kids do chores! What were the servants doing this whole time?
I’m wondering when his 15 minutes of fame is going to be over? The things he says keep getting worse and worse almost like he’s thinking, ‘ok they believed Bristol and I had sex in her room while her parents were there so what else can I say in hopes of getting more exposure?’
I’m sick to death of him and I’m with you ~ she ought to just totally put him out of his misery.
Drag a 100.00 bill thru his trailer park and his mother will
barbecue you a batch of meth!
Todd needs to take this kid for a little ride in the country.
You’re so right. And I’d bet her kids can cope and handle a household while being out on their own, rather than old Levi with no brain. I teach my kids to do work, too...and not be dependent on someone else to live on their own.
Levi...not worth anything. I bet he walks in his momma’s footsteps. He’ll say anything to get his moment of fame. Worthless...
Johnston continues to dance for his pieces of silver. He will say anything to please his leftist masters. He is a liar and white trash.
Yes, with the same mother who claimed she did nothing wrong and would be cleared....weeks before she plead guilty.
The same guy that's sister once claimed the Palin’s were lying about Bristol going to school......weeks before Bristol graduated.
You get the idea.
I thought this idiot’s 15 minutes was already over...
Only the rabid leftist Palin haters will believe this. Its what they want to hear. Of course, Levi is too much of a tool to realize he is a pawn of the left. He’s also to dumb to realize that every time he speaks up, every time he bad mouths his sons family, he makes the case against himself for being a part time father- and sets the stage for Bristol to get full custody.
I think Bristol needs to go to court and increase her child support payments from Mr. Johnston. He does seem to be making a lot of money trashing the Palin family.
He's a walking dirt mine. When the vein runs dry he'll get thrown away.
The dems must REALLY be paying this loser big bucks to make up trash. They say everyone has their price.
The horror! An entire family cooperating as a cohesive unit!
This kid will do anything for money and the libs will keep promising him money to trash Sarah.
The kids wash their clothes, clean their rooms, get ready for school, make their food - oh the horror. Teaching children responsibility and self reliance must be a crime.
Well, they want to believe him but even they know he has no credibility.
Sarah should send Kathy Griffin some flowers.
Why did they even let this guy into their house and near their daughter?
What a brat. He needs to be taken behind the woodshed.
This story certainly smells fishy to me. Like some Lib wrote up their stereotype of what Sarah must be like and put Mr. Johnston’s name on it.
Levi’s only attention/fame getting ploy, is to say bad stuff about Sarah.
He is working it to the max.
We know the liberals can’t wait to post derogatory comments from him about Sarah.
She is being classy to ignore him.
I do not believe him. He is being deliberately ugly .
Meanwhile, the Kennedy kids shoot heroin into their testicles, rape babysitters, and bash in schoolgirl heads with golf clubs. But they're royalty and such behavior is expected.
Plug the name Rex Butler into your search engine.
“...the kids would do it all themselves: cook, clean, do the laundry, and get ready for school...”
Sounds to me like Todd and Sarah Palin did a pretty good job of parenting if they can get the kids to do all these chores. We’re trying to get our kids to do these things too, unfortunately with less success than the Palins.
They will never be over, just so long as Palin is a threat and he is willing to trash the Palin family. She was governor, he works. I have no doubt the Palin's were pressed for time, but I am equally sure that Levi Johnston clearly understands where his financial bread is buttered and there's always more cash for more dirt, whether exaggerated or not.
I simply do not understand why you folks keep devoting bandwidth to this loser. He means nothing.
SARAH PALIN DOES NOT COOK:
I seem to remember at the beginning of the year that when Greta Van Susteren was interviewing Sarah Palin in her home that she was indeed cooking.
Was that special effects or a Palin impersonator doing the cooking?
I think we need to remember that politicians are very unusual people. They are intense and ambitious. Family life has been strained for politicians of many political stripes.
My guess is that Johnston is taking some things that have a grain of truth and exaggerating them. When Palin was giving speeches all over the country, of course she wasn’t making every hockey game. Arguing is part of married life, and intense people like the Palins probably have intense arguments. A determined and caring woman like Palin may have thought Bristol wasn’t ready to be a mother and was willing to strongly encourage her not to have the child.
And how many of us have complained about our jobs? If any of us could quit our jobs and triple our income, wouldn’t it be tempting? And if any of us had been treated like McCain’s people treated Palin, wouldn’t we be a bit annoyed?
This whole thing just makes out Palin to be a human being and Johnston a lowlife who can’t be trusted with someone’s privacy.
there were a lot of people who wanted bristol to marry this guy
I don’t think you read the article. it’s much worse than accusing Palin of delegating chores to her kids.
This kids is a monkey who dances for coins. Pathetic.
Sounds like the kids are well raised, independent and take responsibility.
Unlike Levi, his druggie jail "mom" and creepy sister.
Rex Butler is a black supremacist Democrat lawyer who supported Jesse Jackson for his presidential bid and of course Barack Obama. He is now “surprisingly” Levi Johnston’s lawyer and along with his like-minded buddy Tank Jones pulling the punk’s strings to dance to the MSM’s tune.
Governor Palin let the official Governor’s chef go to save money for the state taxpayers which is a sign that she indeed does cook.
Does anyone here really believe that a working class couple that is famous for hunting and fishing for food, and that even own and operate their own small, seasonal, commercial fishing boat don’t know their way around a kitchen and cooking and that their kids wouldn’t know more about fundamental food preparation than about 95% of the population?
For real, my sons are now 18 and 20 and can cook, do laundry and can sweep and mop. Now when they get married, they won’t NEED a woman to clean up after them.
I was just going to say the same thing- she was making something in the oven (can’t remember what) and then she fixed up a big pot of moose stew I believe! I bet she’s actually a good cook.
At least now Levi’s earning enough money for his meth-addict-mom to hire a really good attorney next time she’s arrested for drug dealing.
Yep. I read as much of it as I could stand and came away with the distinct impression that if young Mr. Johnston wrote more than two words of it he is missing his calling as a journalist. A bad journalist, but a journalist. Not that I'm skeptical, but I wonder what his English grades were like?
wouldn’t it just give you a good feeling in your heart..
if someone found this little P.O.S. out on some backroad somewhere with a bloody nose, missing teeth and some broken bones.
I meant to say Sleazy Emmy awards.
Interesting. I guess someone should ask Levi when he last visited his son and if Todd Palin was present. Todd needs to show him some father-son tough love and help turn this boy into a man. Either that or just beat his ass for trashing his family over and over.
Levi is a perfect example of what happens when most young men without fathers reach maturity (physical maturity).
