If you’ve got $25,000 burning a whole in your pocket—and frankly, who doesn’t in this economy—I’ve got the perfect way for you to spend it. No, not by giving it to me, though that would be cool too. You should put in a bid on eBay to win a dinner for five with Sarah and Todd Palin. The auction will start next Tuesday, and bidding will begin at $25K. The proceeds from the auction will go to Ride 2 Recovery, a charity for wounded veterans. If you bid, just hope that Sarah and Todd stay together long enough to make it to your swinging soiree.
If the thought of having dinner with the Palins makes you want to scream, perhaps you’d prefer to bid $7,500 on a lunch with Karl Rove? Anyone? [CNN] Keep reading »
The Vanity Fair “Me and Mrs. Palin” article by Levi Johnston—which he appears to not have “written” so much as dictated to the editors—is the juiciest, gooeyiest, gossipiest smear I’ve ever sunk my teeth into. Did you know Sarah Palin wanted her and the First Dude to secretly adopt Bristol and Levi’s baby, Tripp, so no one would know her teen daughter had been pregnant?!?! Or that Cindy McCain offered to let Bristol and Levi marry at the White House if McCain won?!?! Allegedly.
But beneath all the gossip that supports the theory that, yes, these chuckleheads and their hunting gear are just as ridic as we’ve always thought they were, Levi (and the Vanity Fair editors who approved his piece) tells another story: Sarah Palin is a bad mother and wife. As much as I dislike the Alaskan ex-governor’s character as a politician, that particular story is not one that’s fair to tell. Keep reading »
And he also spills the beans. In the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair, Levi Johnston says that there wasn’t much parenting in the Palin household, that Sarah wanted to keep Bristol’s pregnancy a secret and then adopt the child when it was born, and that she quit her job as governor so she could make triple the money writing a book. Do we believe him? Maybe. Regardless, it will make for a very entertaining read! [Vanity Fair] Keep reading »
Sure, Levi Johnston is easy on the eyes, but can the hockey hunk write? We’re guessing probably not. Why, then, is Vanity Fair publishing a piece by Levi titled “Me And Sarah Palin” when there are real journalists who would die for a byline in the national magazine? Clearly, Levi is dumb as rocks, but his handlers have brilliantly steered him off-course from D-list celebrity nude pix doom to the respectable pages of VF. Levi’s cover story is not online yet, so we have to wait for whatever fresh angle Bristol Palin‘s baby daddy could possibly cast on Alaska’s ex-guv. But we already know she’s shady as hell, alright?

Sarah Palin has some crafty supporters. Now that she’s out of the governor’s mansion, Palin is required to disclose a list of any gifts she received since December 1, 2008, worth more than $250. Some of the highlights:
- A gun case with her name embroidered on it from a woman in Tennessee.
- A painted plate of Sarah’s noggin from a stoneware studio in Kansas.
- Two handmade army flags from a woman in New Jersey.
- A glass elephant pendant from a woman in California.
- A blanket with the words “The Special Child” cross-stitched into it from a woman in Texas.
- A handmade Bible with a goatskin case.
Uh, is it just me, or does none of this stuff sound like it could possibly be valued at more than $20? [CNN Political Ticker] Keep reading »
I bet no one saw this coming: Levi Johnston, Sarah Palin’s grandbaby-daddy, admits that he’d totally pose naked for the right price. “It depends on the money, man,” he says from his hometown of Wasilla, Alaska in a Skype interview with Bravo’s Andy Cohen. Any chance the “right price” could come from a gay publication? Cohen reminds Levi he’s become somewhat of a “gay pin-up boy.” And since he escorted gay icon Kathy Griffin to the Teen Choice Awards last week and then appeared with her in a hilarious segment on “Larry King Live” the next night, we bet his gay following has only quadrupled in the last few days. “I think it’s great, man,” Levi says. “Um, I just like my fans. Just another person.”
