Levi Johnston Is Writing a Palin Family Tell-All ‘For Me, for My Boy Tripp, and for the Country’
nymag.com/ ^ | 4-25-11

Posted on 04/25/2011 4:05:38 PM PDT by Justaham

Apparently having run out of all other recourse to stave off the decline of his infamy (and ability to make money from it), Bristol Palin's babydaddy, Levi Johnston, is finally doing what he's long threatened and writing down everything bad he claims to know about Bristol's mom, Sarah, and the entire Palin brood. "I want to tell the truth about my close relationship with the Palins," he said in a statement from his publisher. "My sense of Sarah and my perplexing fall from grace — how I feel and what I've learned." Johnston also insisted he's not doing it for the money. "I'm doing this for me, for my boy Tripp and for the country," he added.

(Wow, being cruel to people for the sake of America is all the rage these days.) Before you dismiss this book project as a bit of fluff from a 20-year-old who doesn't seem to actually have a lot to say, remember, there's always the chance Levi could hire a hilarious ghostwriter. Look at the title: Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin's Crosshairs. There are already three or four jokes written into just that! (Although we would have gone with Wolf Under the Helicopter ourselves.)

The fact that Bristol had sex with this idiot doesn’t say much for the Palin genes. Don’t flame. I’m not feeling well.

He’s - again - run out of ways to make an honest living, so he will - again - appeal to the media and their appeal to the lowest common denominator - the bottom feeders in society that think so little of their own lives that their only enjoyment is soaking up the scandals about the people they want to be - celebrities.

Is he going to tell all about posing for Playgirl and slipping around with Kathy Griffin?

I’ve never seen Jersey Shore, no tv, but it sounds like he’d fit right in with the cast on trash tv.

Your post is idiotic. Your excuse is even worse.

Levi says he’s doing this for his son, who he made a bastard.

Yeah right you’re doing it for the boy.

I agree with you. This guy is a dope and I cannot imagine what type of person would be attracted to him. I wish this guy got the hint that no one cares about him and that he would shuffle off to obscurity.

I wonder if he’s found a publisher for this who will really be able to push it. Otherwise, I can’t imagine many people buying the book. They’ll mostly get it second hand, from the magazines and no doubt from more TV interviews.

Even the best teenagers have been known to fall for the wrong people. I’d say they are very, very lucky they persuaded her she had made a mistake before they got married, if you believe that marriage means anything.

And, of course, many prominent families would have just sent her off, aborted the baby, and covered it up. I admire the Palins and Bristol for having and keeping the baby.

Why on earth doesn’t Mr. Todd Palin have a nice little conversation with little Levi?

I’m quite sure Todd would make himself quite plain.

No, anyone who would put a turtle on a fence post is obviously sadistically malicious - at least, it's obvious to everyone but you.

And as to who would be sadistically malicious enough to put Levi on a fencepost, and keep him there, for their own political benefit... hmmm... lemme think, who fits those criteria?

Lindsey Lohan is more intelligent then this brain dead fool. No one cares what that moron has to say..a shame that Tripp has him for a father. Bristol made a mistake getting with him but Tripp is a blessing. Bristol has grown up so hopefully one day she finds herself a REAL man

Because Todd Palin does not want to go to prison for manslaughter.

At the age of 18, the human heart pumps enough blood to the genital area and the brain for either one to function at a time, but not both. She was young, immature, hormonal, and thought she was in love.

If Levi is sincere he needs to do this without any help. Write it and have it published.

I doubt the boy could write one page. He is nice looking but low on brain.

I don’t think the “genes” are the issue. But it doesn’t say anything good about the Palins as parents. On the other hand, once the sin was committed I’m sure that they did all that they could to make sure that their grandchild wasn’t murdered.

Levi Johnson just needs to disappear, but, like David Brock, it appears that the left is going to continue paying him to slander.

Your tagline is about putting turtles on fence posts. The Palins put Levi on the “post” (stage). They gave the libs the ammo and the libs are still using it. And only those worse than an idiot would not see this. So, go buy Levi’s book and see if he explains to idiots who put the turtle on the fence post.

I suspect whatever it was that attracted Bristol to Levi, he will not be able to use for writing his “tell-all” book.

It is fine that they kept the baby, I just don’t see where Bristol is anything to write home about. Levi is a peice of garbage. Her current boyfriend is a real loser as well.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1365348/Bristol-Palins-new-boyfriend-exposes-racist-homophobic-views-Facebook—mocks-mothers-reality-show.html

Adding in that stupid chastity PSA with “The Situation” who is seen having rampant sexual encounters with random woman on The Jersey Shore and one really needs to question if she was raised properly. Just because I like Sarah, doesn’t mean I have to like the rest of them. I loved Ronald Reagan but I really hate Patty and Ron.

Y'know, that is a truly stupid comment. A great many excellent parents have had children who made similar mistakes.

Methinks the reality is that you are suffer from PDS.

Yes, as you point out with the Reagan kids, even good families can have kids who turn out badly. You can bring them up as well as you can, and they can still turn bad. Such is human nature.

I'd have the cojones to spell the word correctly.

Personally I don't have a problem with him.

I have a problem with folks who make him into some kind of hero.

“I want to tell the truth about my close relationship with the Palins,” he said in a statement from his publisher. “My sense of Sarah and my perplexing fall from grace — how I feel and what I’ve learned.”

Yes I know the odds favor this being just another hit-piece. But the quote can also lend itself to the interpretation he has figured out he was used and cast aside once his perceived usefulness to hurt Palin was generally neutralized. Maybe this voyage has actually allowed him to learn a few things.
