Bristol Palin Just Dodged a Bullet

By Adele

Is anyone surprised that Levi Johnston dumped Bristol Palin?

When vows weren’t exchanged soon after Bristol got pregnant, and no future wedding date was ever set, only an idiot like Sarah Palin could think we’d buy Levi as “eager fiancé.”

But to give Levi credit, he tried to be gallant by telling reporters he and Bristol “mutually agreed” to split “a while ago.”

When? On December 27 in the delivery room? Or after Tripp came home and it hit Bristol that she’d forever be responsible for another life? Is that when she decided she really didn’t need a husband?

Bristol’s peeps say she’s “devastated,” which doesn’t sound like she had “a while” to prepare herself. The girl herself has said…

“Unfortunately, my family has seen many people say and do many things to ‘cash in’ on the Palin name. Sometimes that greed clouds good judgment and the truth.”

Nobody knows what she’s talking about, but I wonder if Levi’s drug-pusher mother hasn’t been trying to boost sales by advertising her wares as, “The same ones in Sarah Palin’s medicine chest.”

Unfortunately, Bristol gave Levi the power to make her a statistic — another unwed teen destined to a life of flipping burgers — but I think she’ll see the silver lining in time.

Levi can now become the lowlife redneck he always aspired to be, maybe completing high school, perpetually between jobs, possibly fathering more illegitimate children. Dodging responsibility.

He’s given Bristol the opportunity to make a better life for herself and Tripp, free of a loser who probably would have left her anyway.

Bristol, you’re the Palin with half a brain. Count your blessings and move on. He just wasn’t that into you after all.

    you better watch out kiddo, you don’t know your “baby mama’s” mama!!
    she’s gonna get you fired from your job..:)

    So true, Adele. I remember not long after the Republican convention, Bill Maher was offering sanctuary to Levi Johnston. He said something like, “Call me, dude; leave the baby with the Palins; they won’t notice anyway. If you want to get your party on, come on down to LA. Unfortunately, I can’t let you stay with me, because I’m afraid you’d smoke up all of my s*#t.” I expect Bristol is well rid of someone, whose ambition was to be a redneck. Now, if she could just find another family, with whom she and Tripp could live . . .

    Ali, that might be true if Levi HAD a job. He quit the one he was working because he needed a high school diploma to become an apprentice. Now they say he is trying to get his GED.

    His family has also been saying that the Palins made it rough for Levi to see Tripp. Probably a big mistake, knowing how vindictive Sarah can be. The Palins are saying that Levi’s whole family is welcome to visit the baby any time.

    The truth is probably somewhere in the middle.

    Adele, we love Bill Maher.

    If Bristol and Levi ever really did get married, I expected to see her pregnant again standing at the altar, them moving into a double-wide trailer, and then Bristol turning up in the news again as a battered woman before Levi went out for cigarettes and never came back.

    Yeah, he was cute, but that’s about all he had going for him, apparently.

    It’s a sad, not unfamiliar story. It’s hard to understand how somebody can get their jollies from it, no matter what their politics.

  6. catsworking says:

    Paul, who’s getting jollies from it? Bristol has only her mother to thank that anyone outside their immediate circle knows about her situation.

    I think the breakup is a positive development. Now Bristol may be able to finish high school, go on to college and make something of herself, rather than keeping house for the blue-collar redneck who got her into this mess in the first place.
