Levi Johnston reveals on 'Tyra Banks' show that Sarah Palin knew he and Bristol were having sex
The New York Daily News ^ | 2009-04-03 | Michael Saul

Posted on 04/03/2009 11:32:20 AM PDT by rabscuttle385

She knew?

You betcha, says the baby daddy of Sarah Palin's grandson.

The Alaska governor most likely was aware before her daughter, Bristol, became pregnant that the teenager and her hockey hunk boyfriend were having sex, Levi Johnston said in a bombshell new interview.

"I'm pretty sure she probably knew. Moms are pretty smart," said Johnston, 18, the father of the governor's first grandchild, in an interview that will air Monday on "The Tyra Banks Show."

Johnston said he and Bristol Palin practiced safe sex "most of the time."

This POS will be an anchor around her neck for years to come. He is the baby’s dad, he is white trash and the Palins are famous. Bad decisions can haunt us for a long time.

Levi is a greedy SOB. I don’t care about the sex but to make profit on his out of control hormones at the expense of the female on a national level shows what a low life he is. To put out verbal crap which will one day be his sons legacy to read. He is a shit head in my book.

Ok, but ultimately we all know the sleazy rats are behind all this (Levi may even be one). So I say we go into full counter attack mode.......I’ll start it by saying I’m pretty sure Michelle Obama knew Hussane was on his knees in the back seat of that Limo with Larry Sinclair!

Agreed, but if someone started implying that I was doing cocaine and was shopping around a video, and it wasn’t me, I’d either be suing them for libel and extortion, or my father would have any of a number of federal law enforcement agencies coming down on them over some exaggerated charge that this whole hoax was just a way to extort from the federal government. So far, silence from the Biden’s. There is a difference between what two teenagers do behind closed doors and what a 24 year old does at a party with dozens of people there. Do you think if Levi had a videotape of he and Bristol and was shopping it around that the media would be keeping away from it because, although it looked like her, we can’t really say for sure? No way, they’d have it on You-Tube and say we’d let the people decide.

The article seems to indicate that the person who was showing the video was a scoundrel, and no mention of the problems with having the child of the VP snorting coke - figures. If this were one of the Bush Twins there would be a huge outcry against Bush and the daughter.

Well, I've seen all the evidence I need. This kid is clearly a punk and a deadbeat. Rather than either working, or educating himself (or both) in order to better take care of the life that he co-created, he's doing the chat show circuit.

His mom's allegedly a drug dealer. It appears that his sense of responsibility, character and integrity came from his maternal DNA.

If it is true that Sarah Palin let them share a bedroom (and I am not sure it is), then she has received a major political blow because the media will spin it, saying she is a liar, she is a hypocrite, she is for teen sex, and on and on.

When some of us posted negative statements about Levi, we were called names here. I said from the beginning it was stupid of Palin to show off Levi at the Convention. Bad taste, sent bad message, gave ammo to critics.

It was embarrassing to watch. My parents would never ever have shown off a guy who got a daughter of theirs pregnant.

And yes, where are the stories about Ashley Biden??

I don’t have an “obsessive hatred” of Sarah Palin. However she was a political disaster whose selection as the VP candidate instantly guaranteed Obama the Presidency. The fact that so few FReepers seem to recognize that doesn’t bode well the prospects of fielding a viable ticket in 2012, and making Obama a one-term President. I’m much more appalled by the widespread “hook, line, and sinker” way that so many conservatives have swallowed the Sarah Palin mania, than by anything she herself is or has done.

Because the Biden’s have been in the business longer. You don’t get caught plagiarizing papers in law school, quoting others without citing them when you run for president in the 80’s, have brain surgery for a tumor but never get asked to see the subsequent CT and MRI scans (to see how much brain is left, if any) and become VP without good handlers. No, say what you want about Crazy Joe, he sure knows how to play the game.

It would have been close if he’d had a decent VP candidate. Which way it would have gone, nobody will ever know. But the day Palin was named, it was absolutely over, and anyone looking at the situation objectively knew it. Sadly, I think John McCain realized it within a couple of days, but it was too late.

“I’m pretty sure she probably knew. Moms are pretty smart,” said Johnston, 18, the father of the governor’s first grandchild, in an interview that will air Monday on “The Tyra Banks Show.”

What does that statement ACTUALLY say - that Sarah Palin KNEW????

No, it actually says nothing more, nothing more in evidence, than that Mr. Bristol ‘believes’ she ‘should have known’.

And, we are to believe that Obama’s appearance on Ms. Banks show and Sarah Palin’s opposition to Obama HAS NOTHING to do with her invitation to Mr. Bristol???? No. They are related conditions.

We began to breach the line when ‘the news’ became the stepchild of pure entertainment and those in pure entertainment roles gained as much prominence and importance as the true public figures and leaders in business and government.

I personally think McCain would have lost by much more if it were not for Palin. None of the other options really inspired the base like Palin did at the time. I think more conservatives showed up to the polls because she was on the ticket. McCain was worse than Bob Dole, IMHO. McCain’s poll number went up after Palin joined the ticket so I’m curious to know why you think it was over when he picked her. And McCain’s response to the financial issue didn’t help him.

Do I think she’ll be a lasting presence on the national stage? Too early to tell, but four years is an eternity in politics. A few short years ago, Obama was a mediocre state senator. The real test will be how she succeeds as governor.

McCain’s poll numbers didn’t stay up, and Palin ended up costing him a lot more votes than she brought in. EVERYBODY I know personally, at every point on the political spectrum, was simply flabbergasted at the Palin pick. People who had been engaging in serious debate re the Presidential election came to a grinding halt that day, because it was clear the election was as good as over. One friend at the office told me a couple of days later that he’d been at a business (banking/insurance) golfing event, where an executive he knew well had told him “I’ve never voted for a Democrat in my life, and I was absolutely positive I never would, but now I’m going to do it.”

At least in the educated/affluent segment of society, completely apart from political left/right leanings (and there’s plenty of both), *everybody* saw instantly that Sarah was a rank amateur and so clueless as to be outright dangerous as a possible POTUS (and with McCain’s age, that was a very serious prospect). Even before the reams of trailer-trashy stuff starting coming out (which didn’t take long), she just didn’t come across as someone who could even be qualified for a mid-level management job in the front office of a serious financial institution. She came across as ditzier and more clueless than the average secretary we were accustomed to dealing with, and frankly, apart from her quite recent election as Governor of Alaska, her resume looked a lot like that of the average secretary we were accustomed to dealing with — hiccuppy and unimpressive post-secondary education, no clear career path, etc.

Frankly I think a lot of people who would have voted for McCain simply stayed home. I’m an absentee voter (always in NYC weekdays, even though I’m also a Pennsylvania resident and registered to vote in PA) and I really struggled over it — seriously considered checking off one of the two fringe party candidates on the ballot (but despised both of them), seriously considered checking off Obama because having run his campaign brilliantly and with Biden on the ticket (whose politics I dislike, but who’s clearly an experienced pro), he appeared to be the best choice for a competent executive, seriously considered leaving the President/VP boxes blank, and ended up voting for McCain because 1) I felt sorry for the honorable ex-POW whose last shot at the Presidency had been pulled out from under him by some appallingly bad political advice, and 2) Obama was obviously going to win Pennsylvania anyway.

Nearly all the people who were “inspired” by Palin were going to vote Republican no matter what — not ONE of them was a potential Obama voter. Virtually nobody who was on the fence between McCain and Obama would have tipped over to McCain because Palin had joined the ticket. And tipping the McCain vs. Obama fencesitters was the only way McCain had a chance of winning. Anyone left-leaning enough to even consider voting for Obama over McCain, was going to be appalled by *everything* about Palin.

I think she’s completely finished as a national-level politician. She might have been able to salvage her political career if she’d gotten her act together and closely followed advice from solid, professional political advisers, starting right after the election. Instead she made a series of boorish and defensive media appearances and has managed to piss off pretty much everybody who has an influence at all in the Republican Party (and she’d already managed to piss off quite a lot of them during the campaign). And the endless stream of trailer trashy stuff emanating from her family obviously isn’t helping — it’s not that good, competent people can’t have trailer trashy relatives and daughters’ baby daddies, but there’s a conspicuous lack of anything ELSE emanating from her family circle. At this point, I think her political future in Alaska isn’t even secure.

A few short years ago, Obama was a mediocre state senator.

Until Alan Keyes launched him onto the national stage, with many of the same sort of conservatives who are now infatuated with Palin cheering wildly for Alan as he buffooned his way to a landslide loss. That Senate campaign is what put Obama in a position to make a serious run for the White House.

While Alan was back "home" in Illinois, babbling irrationally about stuff like "the homosexual agenda" in the aftermath of 9/11 (with his adult daughter pulling the Palinesque stunt of choosing to announce she was a lesbian in the middle of the campaign), Obama didn't need to campaign in Illinois at all to be assured of a landslide win. So he eagerly sought and accepted invitations to run around the country speaking at fundraisers for other Democratic candidates -- a job which he did extremely well, causing wealthy liberal white guilt-trippers to open their wallets in response to this charismatic *black" politician from a *disadvantaged* background, who sounded so nice and comfy to them because he went to the same sort of college and professional school they did ("See how wonderful affirmative action is, Muffy? It makes them turn out just like us!"). By the time he popped back to Illinois to collect his winning ticket to a first Senate term, he was already a national figure.

If social conservatives don't start recognizing the danger of fawning over utterly unelectable candidates pretty soon, the United States of America as we know it really will be doomed. It can survive a term, or even two, of someone like Obama in the White House, but it can't survive a long stretch of that sort of leadership.

Who would’ve been a good choice? Romney’s religion makes him a nonstarter. Pawlenty is more boring than an Al Gore slide show and Ridge is pro death. Bobby Jindal and Paul Ryan are too young and I wouldn’t have wanted them permanently tainted by being associated with this campaign.

I have to disagree that “everyone in the educated/affluent segment of society saw Palin as a rank amateur.” Perhaps those in New York City, but certainly not the rest of the county.

You say that you voted for McCain because you “felt sorry for the honorable ex-POW whose last shot at the Presidency had been pulled out from under him by some appallingly bad political advice”. That’s not exactly a high endorsement for the guy. You don’t cite any policies he stood for or anything but feeling sorry for him. Yet you don’t seem to hold him accountable for any of the advisors he chose. Presidency’s don’t get pulled from people. The people that become president, Republicans and Democrats alike, have an intense drive to become president. The candidates who I saw as exceptions to that are Bob Dole and John McCain, both were old guys who spent years in the Senate and ran their campaigns as if the country owed them the presidency because of their years of service in the military as well as in government. Both ran against guys who had no military service, and both ran near times of military deployments by the US, so their military service should have been a plus. Neither had a real message other than some vague “I served, you owe me”. That doesn’t win elections. Unfortunately, in both cases, the other candidates in the primary were even less inspiring than they were.
