WTF? Levi Johnston Is Running For Mayor of Wasilla, AK
Matt | On 10, Aug 2010
I was going through my Twitter timeline this morning and see news that Levi Johnston, soon to be son-in-law of Sarah Palin and father of her grandson, is rumored to be running for MAYOR of Wasilla, Alaska. If you remember, Wasilla is the tiny town that was thrust into the international spotlight when “Mama Grizzly” (Sarah Palin) ran for vice president in 2008.
What am I really doing wrong out here, readers?! MAYOR JOHNSTON?? lol…
Let’s quickly review the timeline. Levi got Bristol Palin preggy in 2008 with their first child. Bristol was a 17-year-old unwed mother and that in itself became a headline story. Bristol had the baby and broke up with Levi, squashing any rumors of planned marriage. Levi goes on the outs with the Palin family, gets on national TV to talk bad about them, and then he poses for PLAYGIRL, of all things. From there, he tries to pitch a reality show to the networks about his outdoor “Alaskan adventures.”
Fast forward to this summer. Bristol and Levi got back together and even announced an engagement via US Weekly. They broke up three weeks later due to rumors of prior infidelity (already?!) on Levi’s part. Bristol also felt like he was chasing limelight more than their almost two-year-old son, Tripp.
Well, if anything is true .. it’s the limelight part. Now he wants to run for mayor of Wasilla and there will be camera crews following him around. They are developing a reality series about his entrance into political life, raising his son, outdoor activities, and other miscellaneous details we don’t care about (but will watch).
It just goes to show you that it’s (usually) not about talent. You don’t even need to be famous. You can KNOW someone who is famous, leech off of their spotlight, get an agent, do some interviews, and have a ready-made political career (or the chase of one) ahead of you.
Who in the hell keeps leaving this damn gate open?! ‘Cause Levi keeps walking through it. ::smh::
