Levi Johnston: Sarah Palin is an Alien

Posted by Shane Vander Hart on September 3, 2009

bristol-levi-SarahHe might as well have said that.  Vanity Fair released some excerpts of an "essay" that Levi Johnston "wrote" that will be published next month.  Entitled “Me and Mrs. Palin” discussing his “insider knowledge” of the Palin home is designed to be yet again another smear of Governor Sarah Palin by Vanity Fair.  According to Levi:

  • There wasn’t much parenting, no cooking, no cleaning, laundry.. the kids did it all.
  • She wanted to adopt her grandchild.
  • She talked about quitting right after the 2008 elections, and pouted around the house.
  • In a press release that Vanity Fair sent out Johnston also alleges: that she fought with Todd all of the time and there was talk of divorce (at least we know who started that rumor now).

Johnston is at it again.  Here we get a glimpse into his character and find it wanting.  It’s also sad that he has pretty much destroyed any chance of a relationship with the mother of his child.  I hope the 15-minutes of fame and the money (yes he is getting paid, would they pay him if it were to be a positive story?  I doubt it) is worth it.  I’m sure his son will be proud.

Regarding the parenting claim… let’s see they have two teenage daughters… so they do the cooking and cleaning… it’s called learning responsibility.  My kids cook, clean and do laundry and they are younger.  I guess that means my wife and I are not doing any parenting.  Wait a minute… they’ll know how to cook, clean and do laundry when they are on their own.  They’ll be prepared for life.  Isn’t that parenting?  Also teenagers in general tend to exaggerate, “you never do this.”  “Everybody will be there.”  Etc.  I guess he isn’t used to that style of parenting.

Regarding the claims about her wanting to quit.  Well you didn’t see it on the job.  I’m sure in the privacy of her home she likely did complain about the ethics violations and mounting legal debt.  What I doubt is that it was discussed much around Levi.

Wanting to adopt her grandchild, perhaps it was discussed as an option.  Looking at him I’m sure that she didn’t see him as being capable.  But in an attempt to hide the fact it was Bristol’s?  Please.  Nobody is that stupid.  I mean you had people accusing her of Trig not being hers, do you think that would fly?  Perhaps we now have a glimpse of the source of the Trig Truth rumors that got started.

Regarding fighting that may occurred.  I’m sure they did and do have arguments, what married couple doesn’t?  But I think the divorce rumor has been pretty well put to bed and debunked by people who know them far better and for longer than Johnston.

I don’t even want to comment on the hunting allegation, and that she doesn’t know how to handle a rifle.  It’s just ridiculous.

I’m sure the Palin family has flaws, who doesn’t?  The problem with Levi Johnston is that he has a lying problem, and even Politico, not known to be a friend of Governor Palin’s, sees some inconsistencies.

So we essentially have a he said, she said situation, but Governor Palin has far more credibility, believability and character witnesses.  Again, she’s not perfect, but he paints a picture that is completely the opposite of what we are told by her friends, coworkers, and family. 

Governor Palin will not respond to his Vanity Fair article.  I think that is wise.  She’s got better things to do, and he certainly doesn’t need more attention.

Update: I have updates over at Caffeinated Thoughts on this.

Resurrection and Carrying the Torch

Posted by Ron Devito on September 3, 2009

Michael Reagan, “Welcome Back Dad” Excerpt:

I’ve been trying to convince my fellow conservatives that they have been wasting their time in a fruitless quest for a new Ronald Reagan to emerge and lead our party and our nation. I insisted that we’d never see his like again because he was one of a kind (Reagan, 2008, ¶1).

I was wrong (Reagan, 2008, ¶2)!

“Wednesday night I watched the Republican National Convention on television and there, before my very eyes, I saw my Dad reborn; only this time he’s a she (Reagan, 2008, ¶3).

And what a she (Reagan, 2008, ¶4)!

In one blockbuster of a speech, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin resurrected my Dad’s indomitable spirit and sent it soaring above the convention center, shooting shock waves through the cynical media’s assigned spaces and electrifying the huge audience with the kind of inspiring rhetoric we haven’t heard since my Dad left the scene (Reagan, 2008, ¶5).

Commentary

A year ago today at the twenty second hour and the thirtieth minute Eastern Daylight Time, our yearning for a great leader to bring the Republican Party back home to its basic principles was answered. Someone at the GOP knew this, for Governor Sarah Palin had a countdown timer running throughout the RNC convention until her speech began. The Presidential candidate did not, but he may have realized win or lose that she was his final gift and final act of sacrifice for our nation.

Since that time, Governor Palin accomplished at the conclusion of her term what 50 years of successive administrations in other states could only dream of. Her brainchild, the Alaska Gasline Inducement Act began the process of morphing a 30-year-old pipe-dream into a real pipeline to be completed by 2019. Governor Palin did not just say nice words about energy independence. Her actions made AGIA arguably the pinnacle of her career and will likely result in an accomplishment beyond the scale and scope achieved even by presidents.

Most recently, she was summoned and passed her Time of Choosing. Two weeks later, using nothing more than a laptop and FaceBook, she changed legislation and altered political discourse. That history is simultaneously repeating itself and being made could not be clearer….

Sarah Palin: For Such a Time as That, For Such a Time as THIS

Posted by Adrienne Ross on September 3, 2009

By Adrienne Ross from http://www.motivationtruth.com

A year ago today, Governor Sarah Palin delivered what will go down in history as one of the best speeches–ever. More than 40 million people watched as she proved that she was not only ready for the big stage, but could dominate it.

One year later, Sarah Palin is one of the most sought-after speakers, having to decline a plethora of requests from people and organizations who recognize and appreciate the substance found within her eloquence.

Did you know that at the beginning of her speech, the teleprompter died? She never missed a beat, did she? She has a God-given gift and speaks from the heart, making it all seem so easy.

On August 29, 2008, when John McCain introduced Sarah Palin to the world, we figured she was something special. On September 3rd, we knew she was. And today, we haven’t changed our minds. We needed her then. We need her now. She has emerged as a leader at a time when this nation is begging for one. She has emerged…”for such a time as this.”

Rewatch the speech that earned her the praise of the world:
