Sarah Palin Lashes Out at Levi Johnston for Sex Talk on Tyra
After taking about sex on The Tyra Banks Show, Johnston the 18-year-old father of Bristol Palin's baby was hit with a blistering response from Bristol's mother, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

"Bristol did not even know Levi was going on the show. We're disappointed that Levi and his family, in a quest for fame, attention, and fortune, are engaging in flat-out lies, gross exaggeration, and even distortion of their relationship," says the statement from the Palin family rep.

"Bristol's focus will remain on raising Tripp, completing her education, and advocating abstinence," the statement continues. "It is unfortunate that Levi finds it more appealing to exploit his previous relationship with Bristol than to contribute to the well being of the child."

The statement ends, saying, "Bristol realizes now that she made a mistake in her relationship and is the one taking responsibility for their actions."

:rofl: Keep talking Levi!

1. "Advocating abstinence?????"
I thought she already made her position clear on that issue.

103. I'd imagine we might find out for certain now, if Bristol tries to get him to support the child
through the courts, and he says no mas, ain't mine and here is a paternity test to prove it.

Wouldn't that be something - it would blow Sarah Palin off the political aspirations map forever. I think I'll keep tuning in to see I can catch the implosion of the Palin tribe - when you have this many secrets, there is bound to be leakage all over the place now that the clan is at war with itself.

11. But she isn't advocating abstinence.
Bristol, much to her credit, already stated that abstinence only is wholly untenable and unrealistic. I feel sorry for the young woman, and I hope someday she's able to recover a meaningful life out of the public eye. She's just a kid, trying to raise another kid and between her mother and the relentless gutter-snipes that can't stop themselves from oozing hateful glee at every problem she encounters it must be very difficult.

93. Shows how much Sarah actually LISTENS to anything Bristol says.
Obviously Sarah didn't watch her own daughter's TV appearance --

I don't have TV, but in the clip I saw, SP couldn't tear herself away from the camera lens long enough to let Bristol say anything, and it was supposed to be Bristol's interview.

or 2016. She's young enough to remain a player in the GOP for quite awhile. And why shouldn't we get some laughs out of the Wasilla Hillbillies - hell they should be a comedy show.

72. The best part about that quote is he apparently couldn't even be bothered to register to vote in
time for the 2000 election. Yup, that's right. His future mother-in-law/baby's grandmother was running for VIP and Levi wasn't and didn't register to vote. I think Sarah would be unwise to count on his lazy @ss to get to the county registrar in time for 2012 either... also too.

33. Wonder what he'll do about the tattoo of Bristol's name on his ring finger (ouch)?
It's just a sad situation all around....the two young parents are under this horrible spotlight, they were being pushed, pulled and prodded by politicians, and they never had an opportunity to think things through or act without coercion. The most telling bit, though, is the suggestion of "do as I say, not as I do:"



In the show airing April 6, Johnston tells Tyra Banks that he believes Sarah Palin knew he and Bristol, 18, were having sex when they lived under her roof. "I'm pretty sure she probably knew. Moms are pretty smart," Johnston says.

The couple, who were high school sweethearts, planned to wed after graduating but ended up splitting earlier this year. At the time, Johnston told Good Morning America that he needed to mature before getting married.

73. I have a sneaking suspicion that the "tattoo" was made by one of Sarah's
$5K-a-week makeup artists using a fine-line Sharpie and McNasty's PR people tipped off a photog. I guess we'll find out Monday. Surely crack-journalist Tyra will ask him to show it off for the masses, no?

Because she was 'getting some' from him too.

Just what is Sarah Palin worried about to publicly ridicule this young man?

Is she worried about more details coming out?

Johnston said he was sharing a room with Bristol Palin in the governor's home prior to their recent break-up. He moved into the Palin home about one to two weeks before Bristol gave birth and was living there until they broke up.

57. This perhaps will not be popular here, but I think Bristol should
sue for child support, considering Levi's new "fame", and put a lot of money into a trust fund for Twig's college.

I believe Levi should have an opportunity, even if forced, to meet the responsibility for the expense of the child he helped bring into the world. It isn't the baby's fault he was born to that group.

58. Regardless of his fame
She should definitely get child support set up and have the custody arrangements detailed out.

But we don't know, he could be sending money to her already. :shrug:

64. I have some experience with ex son-in-laws, and it sounds a lot
easier than it turns out to be (getting the child support, that is)

One can hope. I just hope that because he seems to be taking advantage of this situation, that the babe can get some of the financial gain derived from it.

65. Fame dosn't always translate
into cash, especially when infamous is confused with fame.

69. I understand that fame does not necessarily the coffers fill, but one
could hope that the various tabloid interviews are improving the cash flow, and if so, it should be shared with the offspring.

I've not confused infamous with fame, and I even know what notorious is.

106. Does Levi even have a job?
Seems like it would be difficult to set up child support payments with no income to reference. Can they do something based on potential earnings or a percentage of future earnings? As far as I know, child support is based on current earnings, and requires a new hearing to make any adjustments.

109. Here's what I've seen happen. Judge declares an amount for child
support. The appropriate department in the system (I think the initials are DCF) is paid by the noncustodial parent who issues the check to the custodial parent. THe agency monitors payments. At income tax refund time, the agency can seize all or part of any refund due the noncustodial parent for distrubution to the children involved via custodial parent.

If the noncustodial (hereinafter called deadbeat) gets better job, or teevee interviews, etc, custodial parent can request adjustment. In any case, if deadbeat owes money, of if DCF thinks it is justified, it can be made up at tax refund time.

111. If the father does not have
income to speak of at the initial hearing, how do they come up with a number (for the child support)?

I'm curious because my ex quit his day job before our child support hearing. His parents had plenty of money to support him, so he was able to claim he only worked part time as a bartender. I got a whopping 110.00 month out of it. That was quite a while ago, though, and in California.

Fla, and sometimes it's weird here (refer to 2000, 2004, Jeb, etc.) - just relating what I've seen happen here.

Sarah and her family of grifters should not be talking down to anyone. She does think she's the moral authority for Alaska.

I think it's time for her to call the witch doctor back in for some more laying on of hands.

66. I believe that ever since the day that Caribou Barbie lost the election to be VP
That she has actively prevented Levi from having as much contact with Bristol and eventually the infant Tripp as possible. Even Levi's sister Mercede mentioned that the entire Johnston family is persona non grata at the Palin home.

I also believe that had she become VP, Levi and Bristol would have married, so that POTUS beta 1.0 could have more strongly advocated her positions on birth control, abstinence, and anti-abortion from the White House.

To be honest, I blame the mother more than I blame Bristol. Her mother has been milking this for her own sake (it's part of her "Golly I'm just an average middle-class woman, our family isn't perfect!" persona).

probably seen them three more times after that.Too many 60's songs being used in commercials these days. Some are pretty funny if you think about it.

Even though I agree that I'd like Levi and the rest of them to just STFU up...to make such a public diss about the father of your grandchild isn't very cool. Thing is I'm sure Sarah and Todd DID know that Bristol and Levi were bumping uglies but choose to live in denial about it. If I get any "inkling" my daughter is sexually active I'm driving her butt down to the nearest gyno and getting her on the pill **STAT**.

102. Well Sarah, aren't you willing to pay the price for your grab for fame?
Edited on Sat Apr-04-09 11:02 AM by lunatica
You're the one who dragged your children out of stage with you to use for props. You're the one who embraced Levi and had McCain give his blessings to and dragged him around carrying Trig to show how great a mother you are. If Levi has any fame at all it's 100% because of you. What? You thought the media would just push him aside?

I, for one, am delighted to see her head spinning around and vomiting green stuff since it was she who has tried to make the pact with the devil. There's a price to pay for her vanity after all. It's gratifying to see her sputtering and raging, but it's sad to see how she continues to use your children who have never done a thing to deserve to be dragged down with her.

113. poor Bristol... nobody in her life has her best interests at heart
Any teenager is going to be tempted to have sex, but I'm guessing that a girl whose parents are narcissists is going to be particularly susceptible to thinking that security and happiness come from true love and everything that implies. And after her mother took political advantage of Bristol's decision to not have an abortion as an example of her "family values," now her baby daddy is making a buck off her, too. I really do feel sorry for that poor girl.

122. My personal fav
quote of the Pouting Poujadist Princess is how she attacks Levi, slanders him publicly in a press release to the nation....can you imagine having a public official saying those things about you....and you're just a kid?

and just days ago was slamming the media and "anonymous bloggers" for saying anything about Bristol, who is "just a child".

Um...isn't Levi the same age? and isn't he someone else's kid?

So, it's OK to slam OTHER PEOPLE'S KIDS IN PUBLIC- Just not Scientology Sarah's kids. OK. Got it. wink wink.

The entire Palin clan (and it is a clan) will only continue to become a joke as we get to know them.

There's still the matter of who built and who paid for their big home. That little matter is sticky.
