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.'

    Hopefully some of that porn money will put food in her grandson's mouth and clothes on his back. So as "heartbreaking" as she claims to be (which I doubt), no wonder she does not want to "mess up the gig he's got going". Some of that money is going to come her way. Smart move Sarah (smirk)

  2. Party Purity will never bring Political Power!

    He learned from the best, how to quit your day job and make a quick buck of his 15 minutes of fame.

    His upcoming tell all book, in which he has already stated, the Twitter twit will be front and center, has her scared what his book will tell about the Clampetts of Tundra Trailer Park.

    And if he lies about it in writing she could sue for libel, but I will not be holding my breath about her suing.

    Two best sellers out of this traveling freak show, who knew?

    No

    Does this mean because Palin considers Levi's job as porn that they will not accept his child support payments. Palin again shows her inability to think before speaking and every question doesn't deserve her opinion.

    Let's all pay attention to the second rate beauty contestant from the north country.
    The Alaskan Air Head has the audacity to criticize poor Levi.
    Does she even know she was in the skin trade herself?
    What half- wit would voluntarily label herself 'Rogue'.

    Enough already with the Sarah and Levi chronicles.

    The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released today shows that less than three in ten Americans still delude themselves into believing that Sarah Palin is qualified to be President of the United States rather than, say, a talk show host.

    This not-at-all-surprising news means that CNN can finally move all these useless stories about Palin to the Entertainment page, where they belong.

    This woman has much difficulty forming a logical sentence. Someone ought to inform her of the definition of 'porn'. Or, maybe better yet, let her keep talking and the rest of us can thank goodness she is not running for anythong at this time...or ever.

    And to think Levi was the kid she invited to be with them during the campaign...guess now that she lost she doesn't need a "son-in-law".

    Sara Palin should have spent time on discussing contraception practices with her daughter and helped her purchase birth control pills if she was going to routinely let Levi sleep with her daughter.

  12. Reagan was wrong

    Does she feel the same way about her close personal friend Carrie Prejean's nude pics and auto-erotic tapes?

    Give the kid a break, Palin. Aren't you supposed to be a good Christian and forgive others' mistakes? I don't condone his posing for Playgirl but the young man has a child to support and that money will buy a lot of diapers.

  15. Republicans is smart in the head area

    I don't like Palin, but man... Levi johnston is a joke and so is anyone who takes anything he says seriously. I can't believe Palin would even stoop to his level to acknowledge him and his "gigs"

    Being nominated to be one heart beat away from the leader of the free world: Now that's political pornography.

    Levi is getting into porn. Sarah is a politician. Gee, I am not seeing much of a difference here.

    Palin needs to shut up. I don't believe a word out of her lying whining mouth.

    I always thought PORN was engaging in sexual acts in front of a camera or posing and exposing body parts that should be covered in front of a camera.

    IF WHAT SHE describes as PORN – posing in front of a camera partly dressed in an effort to sell magazines and make money – THEN SHE IS GUILTY of PORN also when she posed in front of the camera in an effort to win a beauty pageant in a THIN bathing suit and she ALSO GOT MONEY!!!

    I’ve decided now NOT to buy the book to find out how ignorant PALIN is – the media is taking care of that for me AND I will watch Oprah later to get the REST!!!

    Even though I think he could have utilized his 15 minutes of fame in a better way, this is hilarious. I am totally going to buy that issue of Playgirl.

    What a bunch of trailer-trash this family is...they belong on Jerry Springer, NOT in American Politics! Sara Palin is an ignorant, lying loser, and the rest of her entourage is as bad or worse...
