Shaking my head over Levi Johnston

I just read that Levi Johnston did an interview for the Tyra show that will air on Monday. Words escape me. I'm so stunned that he would do this to the Palin family - I have no idea why you'd want to promote that you abandoned your 17-year old-girlfriend and the mother of your child. It doesn't exactly make you look good, Levi, or sympathetic.

Even though this isn't an extraordinary thing to happy to any family, especially families with successful parents, MSM will spin this as "white trash," "Jerry Springer family," "full of scandal." MSM eats this up. They'll do anything to deflect attention away from Palin's good deeds in Alaska. They want the general public to immediately think of the supposed "scandals" before they think of her as a good politician who does a great job as Governor.

But this decision was all Levi's. One day he'll regret it I'm sure. He'll regret how he hurt the Palin family, hurt Bristol personally, hurt his son, hurt his character and hurt the Republican party. But now he's just an 18-year-old guy who thinks he's done no wrong. Thank God Bristol and little Tripp have other strong family to lean on for support.

Palin's remarks on the issue:

"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, Meghan Stapleton.

"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."
