History repeats itself as latest anti-Palin books bomb

Posted by joshpainter on September 26, 2011

– by Josh Painter
*
The left’s latest one-two literary punch against Sarah Palin is proving to be an ineffective combination that misses its mark. Disgraced author Joe McGinness’ The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin and Caribou Country clown Levi Johnston’s Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs were both released on Tuesday, but the book-buying public apparently couldn’t care less. At the time of this writing, McGinness’ hardcover hit job is sales-ranked #74 by Amazon and #208 at Barnes & Noble. Johnston’s joke of a book fares even worse, at #888 in sales at Amazon and #20,049 at Barnes & Noble.

It’s not like both books and their respective authors suffered any from lack of promotion by their publishers and left wing advocate bloggers. Random House/Crown conducted a major roll out campaign for The Rogue, lining up appearances for McGinnis to promote his book on NBC’s “Today Show” and ABC’s “The View,” among other small screen venues. Cartoonist Garry Trudeau even signed on to a rather unique agreement to excerpt McGinness’ drive-by character assassination of Sarah Palin in his “Doonesbury” strip. And The Rogue also got featured reviews by liberal newspaper mainstays The New York Times, Washington Post, and the Los Angeles Times. Granted, the reviews were much harsher than Random House had expected, but as they say in the PR world, any publicity is good publicity. And speaking of publicity, McGinness and his 300-plus pages of Palin smears is currently in the vortex of a major controversy of firestorm magnitude, yet sales still remain tepid at best.

The massive hype surrounding McGinness has overshadowed the promotional effort for Johnston’s Deer in the Headlights, but both Palin character assassins benefited from friendly television venues where they hawked their books, and nutroots left blogs have hyped both volumes as the knockout punches that would surely spell the political end of the first woman to govern Alaska and campaign as the Republican Party’s vice presidential candidate once and for all. Yet despite all of this, both books have failed. What went wrong?

The left is already deep into the spin cycle, attempting to explain away the poor performance of the McGinness and Johnston books as a waning of the public’s interest in all things Palin. But the Wasilla Warrior’s name in the headlines still draws viewers to their television screens, sells magazines and guarantees web page traffic, so that excuse doesn’t hold water. We submit that the public has not lost interest in Sarah Palin, but it recognizes a smear job when it sees one. The left, which can always be counted on not to learn a thing from history, has been to this well so many times that John and Jane Q. Public are no longer buying the lies.

A similar one-two combination was tried against Sarah Palin in the spring, and it was an utter failure then, as Steve Flesher wrote May 29 at American Thinker:

Palin-flamethrower, Geoffrey Dunn of the Huffington Post released The Lies of Sarah Palin: The Untold Story Behind Her Relentless Quest for Power May 10th and Frank Bailey, former Aide to Palin, teamed up with Palin critic Jeanne Devon to release Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: A Memoir of Our Tumultuous Years on May 24th. Ardent opponents of Sarah Palin have been highly-anticipating these books which promised to tear down Palin’s public image for the long-term.

Interestingly, Geoffrey Dunn’s book has not even hit Amazon’s top-100 list since its release; and after a week of media coverage including appearances on NBC, ABC’s The View, Fox News, CNN, and many more, Frank Bailey’s “memoir” disappointingly debuted at #40 and has already fallen to #75.

While reasonable voters notice that perhaps Americans are beginning to tire of the anti-Palin volume, others are sure to argue that Americans simply don’t care about her at all, even though the latest headlines which seem to be tracking her every move impeccably could be enough to put that idea to rest.

One thing is sure for Palin as she moves toward making her 2012 decision. She enjoys the luxury of knowing she has been thoroughly vetted and scrutinized for the last two years. While anti-Palin readers have lined their ammunition up one year before a presidential campaign, her supporters are left wondering who is left in Alaska to interview. Because on the basis of Geoffrey Dunn’s and Frank Bailey’s accompanying Palin-bombs, what they’ve come up with so far doesn’t seem to be effectively extinguishing the grassroots energy Sarah Palin has uniquely created and maintained.

The Rogue was supposed to have found success where the Dunn and Bailey efforts met failure, but McGinness made a fatal mistake. The author bet his book on hollow promises from an Alaskan blogger who fed McGinness a long list of juicy allegations, but few real people were willing to put their names behind the rumors. McGinness claims that the reason for the lack of any compelling evidence in his book is that people were fearful for their very lives. Were this the case then why are Jesse Griffin and the members of his gang of Palin-hating bloggers still alive and well in Alaska? No, the reason that McGinness’ book is such a joke is that there’s literally no there there. The rumors are anonymous and unsubstantiated because there’s no truth to them, much less a single shred of compelling evidence to support them. Even liberal reviewers, who would otherwise be favorably disposed toward McGinness in his attempt to take down Clan Palin, recognize a lack of substance when they read it. Like the Dunn and Bailey assaults on Sarah Palin in May, the attempted September slayings of the Mama Grizzly by McGinness and Johnston are doomed to be abject failures.

Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston are getting married

Posted by loricalabrese on July 14, 2010

The on again-off again relationship between Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston is heading for marriage.

After weeks of rumors the two were reconciling, the couple has announced their engagement in the latest issue of Us Weekly.

With or without the approval of the bride’s mother, Sarah Palin, the two say they reconnected about three months ago while working out a custody agreement for their 18-month-old son, Tripp.

“I really thought we were over,” Johnston tells the magazine. But after a walk, Bristol says she was stunned how different her former fiancé was. Later, Johnston texted her: “I miss you. I love you. I want to be with you again.” “I was in shock,” Bristol says.

According to the magazine, Johnston and Palin secretly got engaged two weeks ago, which might explain the public apology Johnston issued last week via People magazine, for lying about the Palin family.

After the tumultous relationship Levi has had with Sarah Palin, everyone must wonder what Sarah Palin’s reaction is. “It is intimidating and scary just to think about what her reaction is going to be,” Bristol says in the US Weekly issue. “Hopefully she will jump on board.”

In a statement to NBC’s Today Show Wednesday morning, Sarah and Todd Palin said they want what’s best for their kids.

“Bristol at 19 is now a young adult. We obviously want what’s best for our children,” they said. “Bristol believes in redemption and forgiveness to a degree most of us struggle to put in practice in our daily lives.”

Levi: When Lying Dogs Won’t Sleep; Updated

Posted by Adrienne Ross on January 24, 2010

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

Everyone has heard the expression “let sleeping dogs lie.” Sounds good and is arguably good advice. But what does one do when a lying dog won’t sleep, won’t shut up, that is?

Normally I avoid all things Levi. He’s not worth it right now. Writing about him is a waste of space. He wants the publicity, so don’t give it to him. I totally understand, and usually I’m in agreement. But I also understand a basic principle, and that is this: there’s a time to fight back. There’s a time when you just have to deal with the barking, biting dog that’s been dropping you know what all over the place everywhere he goes. And sometimes you just have to put him out–not just to deal with him–but for the benefit of those he’s sniping at. This particular mutt, who’s been wagging his tail all over Playgirl, refuses to sit down, shut up, or play dead–and this dog is lying every time he opens his mouth.

Levi Johnston has in his camp sensationalist media, foolish Alaska bloggers, and an obviously inebriated, delusional, or severely gullible lawyer. All that, yet he doesn’t seem to have anybody in his life to tell him to put his mouth to sleep when it comes to attacking his son’s family. No positive male role model to pull him aside, tell him to stop his lying, and just take care of his son. Where’s the tough love from somebody who will look him in the eyes and say, “Dude, what are you doing? You’re gonna wake up one day from your greed-induced stupor and wonder how you sunk so low as to try to hurt your son and his mom and grandmother like this, and that’s gonna be a sad day–for you.”

Every time you turn around, Levi’s parked on somebody’s couch, making mono-syllabic statements about the Palins. And for some reason, he’s absolutely obsessed with the Governor. Constantly he’s saying she’s attacking him so he’s going to attack back. Funny thing is, his jaws are the only ones flapping.

Levi, my dawg, shut up your lying. Man up. And please…pay up.

Concerning paying up, according to TMZ:

Levi Johnston’s manager, Tank Jones, tells TMZ Levi has paid Bristol more than $10,000 since Tripp was born. Jones also says Levi does not make money off of every interview he does, though he did not say exactly how much Levi has made.

Levi has not given Bristol $10,000. Levi has not had an active role in his son’s first year of life.

TMZ also reported:

Attorney Rex Butler tells TMZ, Levi has told Bristol on several occasions he wanted her to come to his house to pick up checks for Tripp’s support. Butler says Levi also told her “it would be nice” if she brought Tripp along when she picked up the checks, because Levi wanted to spend time with his son. Butler says on each occasion Bristol was a no-show.

Butler says Bristol is partly to blame for the fact that she hasn’t gotten the support she wants. Butler tells TMZ on one occasion Levi was prepared to hand over $3,000 … but Bristol never showed.

As for why Levi didn’t just put the check in the mail … Butler says, “Why should he have to do that. He’s not dangerous to her.”

So let’s get this straight. Levi loves his son so much that he’d rather give no money at all than put a stamp on an envelope and mail a check? Instead of being a father to his son and providing for him, he’d rather speculate that Governor Palin is behind the legal suit and talk about Bristol’s new car. Can you say “dog”? Can you say “lying dog”? If that seems harsh, it’ll just have to be harsh because one thing I can’t stand is a man–that’s right, he’s not a little boy anymore–who won’t take care of his responsibilities and then lies about it.

You know when tabloids are calling you deadbeat, you’ve got some stepping up to do. ETonline writes:

In an exclusive interview with ET, Levi says he believes he has given Bristol more than she claims. “I don’t really know but my lawyer does. But it’s reasonable, what he thought was fair. For them to call me a deadbeat dad’s absurd. I attempt to call her all the time and give her texts to make sure he’s doing well … I call her all the time. I try and do everything I can to see my son. I’m making an effort. I’m trying to be there for him.”

“I don’t really know”? “Reasonable”? “Attempt”? “Try”? “Effort”? Huh? Your lawyer knows what you’re giving your son?! Growing up in the church we used to sing a song called “99 1/2 Won’t Do.” Look, if 99 1/2 won’t do, you know 1/2 ain’t gonna do!

Bristol, on the other hand, is to be commended. She is taking care of her responsibilities. Here’s a young woman who, as she recently told Oprah, gets up at 4:00 or 4:30 every morning, gets her son washed and dressed, works, and takes classes. It’s not easy. It’s a challenge, but Tripp is her life now, and she is committed to being a good mother to him, not a “reasonable” one.

What does she get in return? The love of her beautiful baby and the joy of knowing she’s making a life for her son.

Her ex-boyfriend, however, is traipsing around the country making money by selling his soul–and his lies, gallivanting around Wasilla in his new truck and new trinket (hmmm…), and refusing to buy his son so much as a pair of shoes because his little feelings are hurt that Bristol wouldn’t come to his house. In the Black community, we have a word for that. Let me hip yall to it. It’s called “triflin’.” Of course, the community at large is well aware of the more familiar term: low-down dirty dog.

Tripp deserves better. Bristol deserves better. She’s working her tail off for her son, she’s learned from some mistakes she’s made, and she’s committed herself to doing the right thing by remaining abstinent until marriage, to which Levi barks, “I doubt it.” (The daily reminder of men like Levi might be the biggest asset to the abstinence movement ever!) By the way, instead of a “role model” like Oprah Winfrey commending her for that decision, she blasted her and gave her a chance to retract it. Are you kidding me?! (I’ll deal with Oprah at another time.)

The last thing I want to do is spend a Sunday on Levi Johnston. However, I’ll spend a hundred Sundays on the opportunity to applaud Bristol Palin for doing the mature, responsible thing–the hard work. She’s a good mom, who has another good mom as an example.

I believe there’s hope for Levi; I really do. And I hope he grabs ahold of it soon because he’s treading on very thin Alaska ice.

Like I said at the start, there’s something to be said for letting sleeping dogs lie. But when a lying dog refuses to put his rabid mouth to sleep, sometimes you just have to put that dog down.

Update: Anyone asserting that I am suggesting Levi should be killed is out of his/her mind. By “put that dog down” I mean put him in his place, call him out, fight back instead of letting sleeping dogs lie. Hello!

Sarah on Oprah

Posted by Shane Vander Hart on November 17, 2009

By Shane Vander Hart, Caffeinated Thoughts

palinonoprah_thumb2

Governor Sarah Palin was on Oprah today to kick off her the book tour for her first book, Going Rogue: An American Life.  It was the first time since at least college I’ve sat down to watch a show.  Some thoughts & highlights:

  • There was no snubbing, that was something that was overblown by the media.  Governor Palin said that during the campaign she wasn’t aware of the controversy, she said, “no offense, but you weren’t the center of my universe at the time.”  Oprah confirmed that she never asked to come on.
  • It was a fair interview with questions covering Bristol’s pregnancy, how she was handled during the campaign, the Katie Couric interview, election night, Levi Johnston, & 2012 aspirations.  No policy discussion, but I didn’t expect that from Oprah.
  • Governor Palin seemed pretty at ease with the only exception being when they were discussing Levi Johnston.
  • I appreciate the way she handled Johnston.  Saying she’d rather not comment.  She seemed to me more disappointed and in her words “heartbroken” by the choices he was making and was being handled.  She said that he is heading down an unhealthy road.  She was mostly conciliatory in her comments saying that she continues to hope for the best and that she prays for Levi.  She also said he needs to know that he is loved.
  • She flatly denied that Levi and Bristol ever lived together, and that many of his claims (Vanity Fair piece of fiction) were inconsistent.  She again pointed to the fact that he is a teenager is being mishandled.
  • She was very transparent about when she found out Trig was going to have Down Syndrome and how she broke that news to Todd.
  • She said that her interview with Katie Couric was bad.  She said that she was annoyed by the questioning (we only saw a few minutes of hours of taping), and that “it wasn’t professional to wear her annoyance on her sleeve.”  Which is why she didn’t list what she read because the question annoyed her – she did say looking back she wish she did to avoid the controversy that ensued.  She did say that if the Couric interview was the only way people got to know her that she wouldn’t “blame them for thinking I was not qualified or well prepared.”
  • Oprah sent a crew to her home in Wasilla on Halloween, that was a great video showing some behind the scenes in the Palin home.  It reinforced that they are a mainstream family, which is why so many relate to them.
  • She was very complementary of Todd and talked about the strength of their marriage, and at the end of the interview that she wouldn’t have been able to get through the challenges she has faced if it wasn’t for “God and Todd.”
  • Regarding 2012, she said it wasn’t on her radar, but when Oprah asked, “If you were planning on running would you tell me?”  She quickly said no.  She said right now she’s thinking 2010, so it’s safe to say she’ll be out stumping for conservative candidates.
  • Oprah says that Going Rogue was “fascinating read.”

In all I think it was a great interview, and I think will be a positive for her with some who may have been on the fence.

American Pravda Keeps Going After Palin

Posted by Shane Vander Hart on November 13, 2009

By Shane Vander Hart, Caffeinated Thoughts

APabsolutelyPathetic Associated Press

After botching initial coverage of Governor Sarah Palin’s book, Going Rogue: An American Life, and having one of their mistakes regarding a legal bill go viral.  They keep at it.  Today there is blatant editorializing in their article that was up at the Anchorage Daily News site:

NEW YORK — Sarah Palin’s new memoir describes heart-wrenching anguish about her teen daughter’s pregnancy playing out before a national audience. But the 413-page tome doesn’t contain a single reference to the father of her grandson, soon-to-be Playgirl model Levi Johnston.

In "Going Rogue," which will be released Tuesday, Palin also laments about everyone in her entourage being forced to wear fancy clothes she couldn’t afford — preferring simpler, cheaper garb. But it’s as if Johnston, who was among those hastily spiffed up to appear at the 2008 Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn., had never left Wasilla.

The tactic does appear to have merit; Johnston, who has sparred repeatedly with his former mother-in-law-to-be, continues to warn that she should leave him alone, or he might dish some serious dirt that "will hurt her." (emphasis mine)

It appears to have merit?  Yes, after reports about what was said during her Oprah interview, after receiving his “Fleshbot award” in New York for his upcoming Playgirl spread he reiterated this.  Let that sink in for a moment.

Perhaps the better answer is that she doesn’t want to destroy the father of her grandson (who is doing a good job of that all on his own).  Perhaps she’s doing that for the benefit of her grandson who may later on read the book.  Perhaps she doesn’t want to rehash all of the stupid things this kid has done or said after the break-up.  This kid has lost all credibility and most on the left see that he is a complete liar, but in the AP’s mind, it has merit.  Oh brother.  If he had something on her we can be sure it would have been discovered by now.

I really didn’t want to blog on this kid again, thanks AP.

They are in full-blown attack mode “fact-checking” her book.  And their fact-checking needs fact-checking.  Did they ever do this with President Obama’s books?  How about the late Senator Ted Kennedy’s memoir?  Then sources (we have sources here!) say this book is policy-lite.  But Rush predicted the tactic we see being used:

I talked to her yesterday, I’ve got the book, I have it right over there and I’ve had a chance, I just got it a couple days ago, three days ago, and I’ve had a chance to go through it, and I made a prediction to her when I talked to her yesterday.  I said, "You’ve got enough in here that people who get hold of this, like the AP or any of the State-Controlled Media, they’re gonna focus on the soap opera aspects of your book, and they’re going to ignore what is truly one of the most substantive policy books I’ve read."  

This woman, Governor Palin, clearly is jazzed by policy, particularly environmental policy and energy policy, as well as taxes and so forth.  I talked to her about the future of the Republican Party, what she thought about New York-23, how she deals with the character assassination, not just of herself, but of her entire family.

Now it is a memoir, it isn’t going to be all policy and become a wonkish tome, but to say it doesn’t tackle any policy issues at all doesn’t wash.  Especially if you’ve been reading her Facebook notes of late.

Obviously this is the type of “news” organization that the White House likes, but if you’re wondering about her book, keep your powder dry, you can read it yourself this Tuesday.

Surprise! Billionaire Obama Supporter Keeping Levi Johnston In The Spotlight

Posted by Gary P Jackson on October 8, 2009

As we have talked about since the election, there has been a coordinated effort by backers of Barack Obama to harm Governor Sarah Palin. We have also talked about the efforts put forth by both candidate, and now President, Barack Obama to do everything in his power to derail Sarah Palin.

We have previously talked about Barack Obama’s Alaska Mafia and how Obama and Pete Rouse, his former campaign chief-of -staff and now White House adviser, not only played an active roll in the failed “Troopergate” smear on Sarah Palin, but also actively coordinated the many attacks on Sarah post election, including encouraging the filing of all of the phony-baloney “ethics complaints” against her that would eventually cost the Alaskan taxpayers around $2 million.

Barack Obama even did a little pay-for-play “Chicago Style” payoff to Alaska State Senator Kim Elton for his part in the “Troopergate” smear. After being sworn in, Obama quietly appointed Elton to a make work job over at the Department of Interior. You can read the whole deal, as well as watch the great video that ties the entire mess together in a nice little bow, here.

As you know, Levi Johnston, the poster child for abstinence, and deadbeat dad of the century, is now “staring” in an advertising campaign for nuts. This ad, which also features his “bodyguard” “Tank” Jones, an Alaska private investigator, who works for Alaska attorney Rex Butler, a big Obama supporter, features Levi and “Tank” pretending to be at an “event” and has Levi eating the company’s nut.

Butler, who claims to be Levi’s “manager” is also representing Levi’s mother, who is facing drug trafficking charges.

The seriously cheesy ad, which features Levi in a green t-shirt with “Alaska” on it, (because no one would know who this moron is without it) is set against an all white background with “flash bulbs” going off and “canned” crowd noises while ‘Tank” pretends to “fight back the paparazzi!”

Perfectly pathetic, just like the participants!

Our friend Gregory Tart did some digging into Roll Industries, the parent company behind all of this. On his blog, Gregory reports that:

For months last year, the Huffington Post mocked Sarah Palin over Levi Johnston. The jokes about “meth”, hillbillies, and Bristol Palin was beyond the pale.

Now, Obama backers have launched an equally insidious deal to keep Levi Johnston in the public eye through a promotional campaign by Roll Industries for its nuts products- which seeks to profit from the former relationship between Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston. Johnston is a spokesman for the Roll’s Paramount Growers division.

Stewart A. Resnick, a billionaire liberal democrat, residing in Los Angeles, is the Chairman of Roll International. Rolls’ business involves agriculture, Fiji Water, and the Franklin Mint. He is also a prime financial backer behind the Democratic Party. His wife Lynda is Godmother to Arianna Huffington’s daughter.

Many have speculated that rich democrats would go to any lengths to keep this character in the public eye to embarrass Sarah Palin. It’s a sad world where the rich can score political points by attacking children to get at the mother.

Rolls International Brands include Sunkist.

Some very interesting points there, for sure. The ties to hate monger Arianna Huffington, whose vile Huffington Post actively and openly promotes hatred toward Sarah Palin are the most interesting, for sure.

In her attempts to constantly smear and spread lies about Sarah Palin, Huffington plucked two Z-list bloggers Shannyn Moore and Jeanne Devon (AKMuckraker) from obscurity, and made them feature bloggers on her website. Moore and Devon are charters members of Barack Obama’s Alaska Mafia.

One of the things Moore and Devon, along with Linda Kellen Biegel, were quite adept at, was illegally publicizing details of the various “ethics complaints” filed against Governor Palin. In Alaska, it’s illegal to publicize this sort of thing, until the complaint is resolved. Of course, the law has no teeth.

Oddly enough, if you do this and the complaint is against any government official EXCEPT the Governor, the complaint is thrown out. But curiously, not if it’s against the Governor or their staff. Hmmmmm.

Moore and Devon, along with the rest of the Alaska Mafia made great use of this loophole, often having intimate details of the complaints published on their blogs before they were even filed!

Wonder how they were able to do that? Could it be they were the ones writing them for others to file on their behalf?

The complaints, which have all been dismissed, were for ridiculous things like being photographed holding a fish, conducting an interview in her office, receiving cookies as a “bribe,” and wearing a jacket in sub-zero weather!

Linda Kellin Biegel, who was raising funds (possibly illegally) on her website so she could file more ethics complaints, herself, even concocted a conspiracy theory when Sarah went to visit her troops in Kosovo!

Even better, being the constitutional scholar that she is, Biegel, and her Mafia buddies decided that it was “unconstitutional” for Sarah Palin to talk to her troops while visiting them in Kosovo! I kid you not!

Sarah Palin, as Commander-in-Chief of the Alaska National Guard, addressed her troops giving them encouragement and support. Bringing them the best wishes from home.

Such is the depths of depravity these supreme sufferers of Palin Derangement Syndrome are capable of!

Look, the bottom line is this. Barack Obama and his many wealthy supporters know what we know. Sarah Palin is the biggest threat out there to Barack Obama, besides Barack Obama’s own incompetence. They know that she is an incredibly effective politician, see “death panels,” as well as a much loved Conservative figure and leading candidate for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. This has them scared, as it should.

Obama’s billionaire backers like Stewart Resnick and George Soros have an almost endless supply of funds they will use to go after Palin in all sorts of “creative” ways. It must be noted though, that George Soros, whose MoveOn.org claimed “ownership” of the democrat party after the 2006 elections, spent a small fortune between 2000 and 2008 trying to defeat George Bush, to no avail!

As for Levi Johnston, this guy is a flake. Thank goodness Bristol had the good sense to dump this loser. It’s really a sad commentary that this kid would disrespect his son just to make a fast buck.

Levi, a total deadbeat who hasn’t paid one red cent in child support, is the sort person society used to shun. But we are living in the times were losers like this are celebrated, not banished to the ash heap of history. See Roman Polanski, David Letterman, and Obama’s “Safe Schools Czar” Kevin Jennings.

It’s obvious Levi Johnston has no self respect. But you would think this mutt would care about his son, Tripp, enough not to make a spectacle out of himself, but that is just too much to ask, I guess. Levi’s next move is to pose for Playgirl Magazine. I wonder if anyone has told Levi that about 80 percent of the purchasers of Playgirl are gay men?

It looks like Roll Industries, Stewart Resnick, and our President, have found themselves quite the winner in “spokesmodel” Levi Johnston!

Roll International is the parent company for these fine products:

Sunkist Fruit

Teleflora, the largest flower delivery service in the world.

FIJI bottled water

POM pomegranate products.

Paramount citrus and nuts.

Suterra pest control items.

Neptune Pacific Line global shipping company

In-house advertising agency Fire Station, which pays Levi as a pitchman for Rolls’ nuts.

H/T to Josh Painter for being on top of this as well. His is a must read blog.

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.

Levi Johnston Dead Beat Dad Of The Year

Posted by Gary P Jackson on June 4, 2009

I’m not a fan of Levi Johnston. But as Father’s Day will soon be upon us, I feel this is a fitting award!

Why am I bringing this up, and what does this have to with my usual theme of choices in politics and life? Well, it should be obvious. Life is all about choices. Some good, some bad, and some just plain disgusting

Levi is rapidly falling into the disgusting category

We’ve all had failed relationships in our life. Some of us, especially when we were young, had a few. Most of us didn’t leave a child behind in those relationships. But out of those that did, most stepped up to the plate and did the right thing by the kid.

Which brings me to an e-mail from a friend. “Levi seen cashing two $500 checks from National Enquirer at Wasilla Wal-Mart!” Not exactly news, I mean we all understand Levi is prostituting himself out for “fame and fortune”.

But it brings up some questions. While Levi is out playing “rock star for the day”, who is taking care of his son full time, working to pay for his son’s diapers, while continuing her education?

While Levi is out schmoozing, or hunting and fishing, who is changing dirty diapers and taking care of his son?

And what about Levi’s new found celebrity?

Here’s an uneducated, unemployed, kid. A kid that ain’t even looking for a job. And yet, since he has become such a well known man-about-town, he has traded in his fairly new Chevrolet pick up, for a more upscale Ford. He also has new Jeep. It now seems Levi has supposedly put a deposit down on a Mercedes-Benz in Anchorage!

Now being a reformed car guy, I can tell you that folks don’t just put down a deposit on hope! (or change)

So you tell me, where does all of Levi’s money come from? I mean this is an unemployed high school drop out! Cars cost money, flashy clothes cost money, and jet setting across the nation costs a lot of money, especially with an accused drug dealing mother and a sister who seems a little to “attentive” for my taste, in tow.

One answer may very well be Rex Butler

Butler is a high powered Alaska attorney and Barack Obama supporter. He is representing Levi’s mother, Sherry Johnston on her 6 felony counts of drug trafficking. He also appears to be Levi’s manager of sorts.

Eddie Burke, from the Eddie Burke Show, discusses this situation at length. Evidently, long time Butler muscle for hire Sherman “Tank” Jones is now Levi’s bodyguard!

Our friends over at Conservatives 4 Palin describe this pair as money grubbing smear merchants.” Which seems to describe the entire left wing up in the land of the midnight sun. I’ve written extensively about some of the insane bloggers who have co-ordinated many attacks on Governor Palin, and C4P calls them some of them out, as well, in their story on Butler and Jones.

It is said that Butler is representing Sherry Johnson and Levi “pro-bono.” But that doesn’t sound right. I mean what is in it for Butler? Now I can see an attorney, helping out a local out with a small, or even large problem for free, so long as they didn’t have to break a sweat. But….

Now, it has been well established that Barack Obama and his chief of staff Pete Rouse were a driving force behind the phony troopergate witch hunt, and as a reward for a job well done, Pete Rouse’s good friend, Alaska Senator Kim Elton, who ram-rodded the smear campaign was given a make work job over in the Department of the Interior in Barack Obama’s administration.

Could Butler be expecting some sort of payoff down the line? That certainly seems to be the Chicago way!

I honestly don’t know. But I know this. New Ford trucks, Jeeps, and Mercedes-Benz automobiles cost a lot of money. Money that an uneducated, unemployed kid generally wouldn’t have.

Levi decided to forgo being a stand up guy when it came to taking care of his child. Instead he has decided to spend his youth stripping for GQ magazine, and trashing the mother of his child on national television, by appearing on the Tyra Banks Show, as well as Larry King Live. (I’m sure his son will be so proud to know this when he grows up)

Now, when asked, Tyra banks said in no uncertain terms that the show did not pay for Levi, and family, to appear on the show, nor provide for expenses.

Plane tickets cost money. Hotels in New York City cost money. Eating in New York City costs money. Just moving around the city costs money, even if you assume the shows sent a car to bring the Johnston family to the studios.

So, where is all of this money coming from?

While two $500 checks from National Enquirer is certainly income, it’s not much. And if Levi was a man, instead of a boy, he would have given one of those checks to Bristol, to help care for his son.

Which brings me to this. Why doesn’t Levi stop playing “teen idol” and man-up?

Well, if this boy actually went out and got a job, he’d have to give up half of it in child support, that’s why! This loser knows the second he becomes a productive member of society, he will be forced to take responsibility for his son.

Levi seems to think that if he has no job, no visible means of support, that he has no responsibilities. Maybe he figures 50% of nothing, is nothing.

Of course, as far as being a real man, 100% of Levi is still nothing!

Do the right thing Levi, get a job, and provide for your child. You are only a useful idiot to the left. As soon as they use you up, they’ll forget you. Your son, on the other hand is precious, and needs his father to be a stand up guy!

Levi, It is a time for you to choose!
