The Engagement’s Off.


Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston have apparently ended their engagement:

It’s surprising because in an interview just last month with FOX’s Gretta Van Susteren, Bristol said the 19-year-old Levi is a hands-on dad and that they planned on marrying after finishing their education.

But in a new interview with Star Magazine, Levi’s sister Mercede Johnston says Bristol actually broke up with Levi more than a month ago, is not attending school and rarely lets her baby daddy see their young son. Mercede also says Bristol even told him that she hates him and, when she learned she was pregnant, wished the baby wasn’t his.

Sad teenage parent drama aside (and believe me, this post isn’t exactly schadenfreude), what do you think would be happening if Sarah Palin were our vice president? Would Bristol and Levi be married by now? Frankly, I suspect not.

Since words like ‘white trash’ are being thrown around in reference to the Johnstons, I think the GOP would have found a way to moralize their beloved vice-president’s daughter out of a shotgun wedding to the high school dropout son of an alleged drug dealer.

    Is this why Sara Palin is suddenly keeping a low profile? The irony of this whole situation and the GOP’s message of saving the traditional family is just palpable. Well, at the end of the day this 2 month old child will at least have a family legacy of colorful names to call upon … Levi, Mercede, Bristol …

    Additionally, I believe that if Palin had been VP they most certainly would have gotten married and all of this inner turmoil would have been covered up, we probably would not have even known about the drug dealing granny. I mean if public image and cover ups are good enough for entertainers surely it is good enough for politicians.
