Palin slams Levi for 'porn'

Palin slams Levi for 'porn'.

(CNN) - In her big interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired Monday, Sarah Palin took a slap at Levi Johnston, the father of her nearly year-old grandson, for engaging in what amounts to "porn."

"We don't want to mess up the gig he's got going, aspiring, aspiring porn, some of the things that he's doing," the former Alaska governor told Winfrey. "It's kind of heartbreaking."

Winfrey asked if Palin was referencing Johnston's upcoming photo spread for Playgirl.

Palin said she was. "I call that porn, yes. So it's a bit heartbreaking to see the road that he's on right now," she said.

The former Republican vice presidential candidate appeared on Winfrey's show ahead of the release of her new book, 'Going Rogue.'

    Well, if a mere photograph of a person is "porn", what would she say about Carrie Prejean's masturbation tape?

    Seven Palin stories on the Ticker, a banner day for CNN!

    I get it, John King is just a place holder for Lou Dobbs while you guys work out the contract details with Sarah, right? All of this is just laying the groundwork for the announcement that she'll be hosting a show where Dobbs used to be.

    The reason our country is in the trouble it's in is all of the substantive issues our press gives in-depth coverage to!

    She put Levi in the spotlight as another prop. I think that he should capitalize on time spent with that lunatic! Be careful labeling this young man Ms. Palin. It may come back to bite you in the end. Catty, catty. Grow up. Good luck to Levi in whatever he chooses to do.

    did I miss something? Have Levi & Sarah become the same charecter? Each pimping theirselves out for an easy buck.

    by the way, parading her poor mentally challenged child around as a prop is just plain pathetic & cruel.

    Porn? Perhaps. But it's a heckuva lot more "heartbreaking" to watch some mean-sirited, ignorant, meat-puppet, moron lie and lie and lie, and duck out of her job as an elected official, and whine and whine and whine.

    If there's a trashy family here, babe, you are the matriarch.

    What a pathetic person you are.

    Coming from the say anything ("death panels") do anything (quit because she can make more money in the free market) Sarah, I find it difficult to hear her complain about HIS choices.

    Levi is a young man who had no meaningful obligation to anyone other than Bristol and their child, who took the opportunity to make some money, even though its not classy. Sarah, on the other hand, had an obligation to the entire state of Alaska, for which she vied and won, who walked out on that to make a buck writing a book. Levi is the more honorable of the two.

    She should slam Carrie Prejean for real porn and leave Levi alone.

    The real "Porn" lies in screwing the G.O.P. and the Country into selling her so called "Bio" ,for cash, on the open market !

    For a change I do agree with Palin...Looks like Johnston is out to make a quick buck with his newly found 15 minutes of fame

    I thought he was in the military? wasn't that the war cry that conservatives were saying why palin's family was so patriotic?

    Well what else can Levi do to earn some money? He's an idiot looking for his 15 minutes of fame. I am so sick of seeing this loser on Entertainment tonight, they have really lowered their standards to put this liars, lies on the air. You really think Sarah involved this punk in any of the important family matters or personal business? Put your clothes on Levi, nobody wants to see you anyway.

    maybe he could be her running mate? i just don't know yet who of the two of them is more qualified to be number one on the ticket?

    Well you can't expect Levi to go out and get a job.............work, that would much to difficult for this loser. He is riding on Sarahs coat tails cause he is a nobody. Put your clothes on and go away, forever.

    Porn? Sorry Sarah. But you were a beauty queen weren't you? And what Carrie Prejean did? I thought she was you new BFF.

    So, showing yourself as your creator made you is porn, but having a child out of wedlock isn't shameful?

    I think this will get ugly between the two of them.

    Once he was the golden all American boy, now he's a porn star? Palin is an opportunist. Beware of this upstart. She is milking her undeserved notoriety for all it's worth and will say and do anything to remain in the public eye.
