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.
