Levi Johnston, Governor Sarah Palin’s former son-in-law, continues to beg for attention.
Johnston fought to allow the custody matter to unfold in public, saying in a sworn statement that doing so would help put everyone on best behavior. He noted that Van Flein also represents Sarah Palin.
“I know that public scrutiny will simplify this matter and act as a check against anyone’s need to be overly vindictive, aggressive or malicious, not that Bristol would ever be that way, nor that I would. But her mother is powerful, politically ambitious and has a reputation for being extremely vindictive,” Johnston said in his affidavit. “So, I think a public case might go a long way in reducing Sarah Palin’s instinct to attack.”
As you’d expect, Andrew Sullivan immediately jumps to Johnston’s defense. “He’s a nineteen-year-old up against one of the most powerful and easily the most famous celebrity in Alaska. No wonder he wants a little sunlight,” the Atlantic blogger writes.
Well, I hope you’ll excuse me, but I won’t defend the little piece of trailer park trash and I don’t care that he’s only nineteen years old either.
Johnston isn’t someone we should treat with respect – at all. First he got Bristol Palin pregnant, next he abandoned her, and after that he tried to make a quick buck by talking trash about his former in-laws. In short, he’s the lowest of the lowest. If there’s anybody who personifies the word “sleazebag” it’s him.
It’s extremely sad that Sullivan, who was once one of the most respected conservatives bloggers in the States and who wrote a terrific book on conservatism, continues to defend this worm. How deep the great have fallen.
