Ok, so you’re Sarah Palin and you hear that your daughter Bristol’s boyfriend/ex-boyfriend/ fiance/ex-fiance Levi Johnston is planning on running for your old job…Mayor of Wasilla, tell me, what the heck goes through your head (if anything). Me? If I was Palin, I’d be thinking…”this pain in the ass is like a bad penny…I just can’t get rid of him”.
But the former candidate for Vice President (turned money hound) has much more to consider.
Come with me…Lets imagine we are inside Sarah’s head and can hear what she might be thinking about Levi Johnston’s entrance into the political arena…
“What do I do?… Do I endorse the little SOB or not? After all he is the father of my grandson. If I don’t endorse him, when my grandson Tripp grows up how do I explain that I wouldn’t support his father for Mayor? It’ll send him to a shrink for sure… And Todd and I, we’re hoping little Tripp turns out just like his grand-daddy, a musher and a BP Oil worker…you betcha.
But there is another side to this complicated situation. I could endorse Levi…geez, he almost has his high school diploma now. And he’s cute and look where being cute got me. And he does cute things (right eye wink)
I remember when Bristol and Levi were first palling around together and he had Bristol’s name tattooed on his fingers….I thought it was so romantic. Todd never did that for me.
And when you think about it, if Levi did win Mayor and continued on, this just might be the start of a political dynasty like the Bush family.
This decision is a tough one. Do I endorse or not?…maybe I’ll ask John McCain for advise. He always makes wise decisions. You betcha.”
