Johnston's latest gig is with Playgirl magazine.

Levi Johnston has laid bare life with the Palin family. Now he's about to expose much more – himself.

Rex Butler, a lawyer for the 19-year-old father of Sarah Palin's grandchild, says it is a "foregone conclusion" Johnston will pose nude for Playgirl and is now getting gym-ready three hours a day, six nights a week, working out with an Anchorage body builder, the Associated Press reports.

    Uhhh, Levi. Your 15 minutes of fame are over.

    Then again, maybe the Palin crowd will make you the poster boy for irresponsible teenage fatherhood, as I'm sure that you are spending lots of time with your child.

    Oh Lawd Ham Mercy. Just when you think these people would just go away, they are about to strip naked.

    Levi has jumped the shark, or more likely become embraced by the brainless libs.

    On the one hand, I say "Who cares? This guys claim to fame is he is a pimple on the butt of a mental flea."

    On the other hand, I say "go for it" – Palin dragged him into the spotlight with the rest of her dysfunctional brood and at least he is getting some positive traction out of it.

    This is no more sad or bizarre than Palin being paid to make speeches and "writing" a book.

    Sarah would do the same thing for PlayBoy if she was younger and she'd get major bucks for it. Sarah will do anything to attract a vote. Sick.

    what a piece of no talent garbage!!! he is also a loser, a liar and a piece of pond scum. he has a new baby and this is how he builds a life so that he can raise it. he is more interested in himself. seems to me he was going to complete his education and get married. no wonder children grown up to be so dysfunctional now days when their parent's actions say to them "you are not important to me."

    Utter disgrace. This person has lost all dignity.

    Levi Johnson is a real handsome "hunk." I sure hope hope he wises-up before using his body behaving in a naughty fashion. Those good looks, used wisely in more constructive ways, could make him a fortune eventually. He should check his morals, get sweet and stay that way. More people would admire his for his good behavior than all those sickos who would pin his nude photo on the wall of their rooms.

    What is the criteria for being a "news" story on the Ticker?

    I don't know what's more surprising – the news about Levi posing for Playgirl or the fact Playgirl is still being published. I thought that magazine had folded years ago.

    This is definitely a top issue, thank you for bringing it to everyone's attention! I also wanted to point out how this article clearly shows that the Republicans have no plans for health care reform and are just plain evil! Knowing the Levi Johnston is going to pose nude is really going to help me become informed about the most pressing issues facing the country and stimulate my political thought!
