Oprah to Palin: Is Levi Johnston invited for Thanksgiving dinner?

posted at 4:10 pm on November 12, 2009 by Allahpundit

Two hors d’oeuvres to whet your appetite for next week’s entree, the first touching on the Katie Couric trainwreck interview and the second on America’s favorite schwanz-flapping teen parasite. She handles the latter question superbly, although I’m not sure how to square her magnanimity here with the statement she released a few weeks ago after Johnston smeared her on CBS. (“Consider the source of the most recent attention-getting lies – those who would sell their body for money reflect a desperate need for attention and are likely to say and do anything for even more attention.”) Johnston himself has a theory:

Levi Johnston, the hunky baby daddy of Sarah Palin’s grandson, called the former vice presidential nominee wise for not trash talking him in her soon-to-be aired interview with Oprah Winfrey.

“She’s being smart,” said Johnston, when a reporter told him last night that Palin didn’t blast him in the interview she taped with Winfrey Wednesday afternoon. “She knows what I got on her. It’s a smart move on her part.”

Should be a fun, festive family get-together. Meanwhile, you’ll be pleased to know that he’s getting parenting advice from a renowned expert in the field. Sounds like it’s already paying off, too.

Levi Johnston is a perfect example of the sound reasoning by the Inuit people to setting their undesirables adrift on ice floes.

Oprah is small.

Not physically, but she’s small.

I’ve yet to figure out why people hate Sarah Palin, or for that matter, Barack Obama so much. Sarah Palin, especially, seems to be a warm, decent person. Is she perfect? No. No one is. Levi Johnston needs to go the hell away. Like I said before, get a GED and a college degree. Do something with your life before you become irrelevant and end up working at McDonald’s in Anchorage.

NathanG on November 12, 2009 at 4:31 PM

I get why people hate Barack Obama. He’s the most powerful individual in the world and is using(or abusing to be more accurate) that to destroy this country. He calls it “remaking” or “reshaping”, but he’s hurting millions of Americans with his policies.

I also get the hatred of George W. Bush. He was President for 8 years, and he did a lot of things that people vehemently opposed. In particular, the Iraq war. Whether you agreed with it or not, many people died as a result. That will draw the ire of many folks, and justifiably so.

As for Palin though, I don’t understand how someone could hate her. Where would that anger and vitriol come from? Aside from the crooked politicians she took down in Alaska, who exactly has she harmed either directly or indirectly that would warrant the smears aimed at both her and her family? I get why many Dems fear her or dread her, but that’s different from hate.

Some of the palin people are as bad as our liberal trolls. They cannot take any criticism seriously.

lorien1973 on November 12, 2009 at 4:38 PM

I agree. (ducks for cover). :)

I wish she would run for the Senate in 2014. She could easily beat Mark Begich. Two women senators from Alaska would be great too. She really could learn more about the national political scene and get more experience and run in the future.

NathanG on November 12, 2009 at 4:41 PM

Sarah Palin’s beauty and graciousness are in such stark contrast to Oprah Winfrey’s ummm….not beauty and insolence. Thanks for posting this, Allah – now I won’t be so shocked at the disparity when I watch the show.

I disagree about Barack Obama. I don’t hate him, but I do hate what seems to be his condescending attitude. Al Gore’s the same way. His personality stunk/stinks. I get your argument about Bush though. I like the guy. He seems affable and believes in what he does/says. I just don’t get the hatred for anybody. I think the jerks on the left just enjoy kicking Palin in the teeth, because, well, they’re jerks. That’s not to say there aren’t jerks on the right, but the left seems to have their fair share. I just wasn’t raised to hate. I’ve called Boxer and Pelosi b*tches on this site, but I regret it. I get angry and then say something I shouldn’t or write something I shouldn’t. Well, actually I take that back. Boxer is just a b*tch, Republican or Dem. She’s just not a nice person.

Hey. All I’m saying is that the Palin family come off looking very forgiving in that incident. Hell, I’m a little vindictive myself, so I understand. And, for the non-humor occluded, references to food tasters generally signal a tongue-in-cheek statement.

The Palin clan is not playing this Levi kid correctly.
They could shut this punk up by having Bristol sue his lazy a$$ for child support.

If done correctly they can have it tied to any income derived from his celebrity endeavours.

Once they get a decent number negotiate with the punk and make him sign a contract to shut his yap in favor of deferral of payment.

If this clown is not put out of business he will be the Billy Carter chain around Sarah’s ankle.

Leech-fly Johnston will make $150K for posing nude in Playgirl Magazine, probably more than Sarah Palin made as Governor of Alaska. And last year, the Democrats criticized the RNC for buying clothes for Sarah Palin. Despicable, but that’s what the tabloid culture pays for.

As for Thanksgiving dinner, maybe Bristol Palin should decide. Leech-fly should be thankful that Todd Palin hasn’t mistaken him for a moose.

“I’m planning on going to acting school and try acting,” [Levi Johnston] said. “I would like to do a few more modeling things and I’m thinking about doing some movies. I want to get into acting, so that’s what I’m going to do.”

But he realized that some have criticized him for his apparent quest for fame.

“I’m a good guy and not looking only for fame and attention,” he said.

Ahhh I get it: “Not looking for fame or attention… hey, I’ll get into ACTING!”

the_souse on November 12, 2009 at 4:55 PM

I’m not sure how to square her magnanimity here with the statement she released a few weeks ago…

-Allahpundit

It’s really not that hard to square.

If Johnston were to come to his senses and stop being a douchebag tool loser, he would most likely be welcomed back into the fold with open arms. That’s what good people do, particularly good Christian people like the Palins.

However, as long as he insists upon remaining a douchebag tool loser, they have little choice but to defend themselves.

The former they do gladly; the latter they do reluctantly.

Yeah, that’s only true in Tina Fey’s dreams. Probably in Fey’s husband’s as well.

I get the impression that AP is not the biggest Palin fan in the universe, but I’m not seeing this post as some sort of nefarious scheme to ‘get her’ or anything.

No, it’s a nefarious scheme to get traffic. And it works. Every time.

But with that said, he does seem to enjoy tweaking his commenters occasionally.

AP is a big boy and can take care of himself, but the bashing in this thread serves, umm, what purpose does it serve exactly? Allah posted links to two interview excerpts and made pretty much non-snarky comments. For this he’s getting crucified? Again? Seriously people, I get that some of you are in permanent “screw Allah” mode, but get over it. If you don’t like his stuff, don’t read it.

For the record, I do think that AP harps on certain subjects sometimes, just to stir the pot a little. I just don’t think that this was one of those times.

Read this excerpt from:http://bit.ly/1ZJn61

“And she says that most of her legal bills were generated defending what she called frivolous ethics complaints, but she reveals that about $500,000 was a bill she received to pay for the McCain campaign vetting her for the VP nod.

She said when she asked the McCain campaign if it would help her financially, she was told McCain’s camp would have paid all the bills if he’d won; since he lost, the vetting legal bills were her responsibility.”

WTH? Sarah had to pay McCain half a million because he lost?

If the polls are accurate on Sarah, wouldn’t it behoove her to deal with all the baggage now rather than in 2011 just before the primaries start?

This is no different than what we did to McLame, Rudy, Mitt, Huckabigot, and that dude from some TV show that never got his campaign off the ground….what the heck was his name again? ;-) We need Allah to drag Palin through every mudhole from Alaska to Russia so we can fully vet her qualifications.

Look at it this way, as bad as the polls are for her, can she do anything EXCEPT go up from there? Everyone except the Palinistas hate her guts, so any increase in favorability means what ever she is doing is starting to win folks over.

Embrace the snark you guys.

Heh. Me thinks the closest he’ll get to acting is gay porn.

Thank you so much for that wonderful mental image. Anyone got brain bleach? Yuck.

She is treating Sarah Palin like James Frey.

lonestar1 on November 12, 2009 at 5:02 PM

I have no interest in the video or in some fat, ugly TV witch, but if I’m not mistaken, Fat O created James Frey before she tried to destroy him. No?

Not true, though I agree with the gist.

Which of Barry’s family will join him for Thanksgiving? I say the Beav’s basketball coach and the mom-in-law.

Is Michelle wearing the bed spread and a four inch belt, or the tablecloth and a four inch belt? Hopefully Oprah will ask.

Put it this way: if everyone but Palinistas hate her guts, there are a hell of a lot of Palinistas.
