PEOPLE: Levi getting ready to pose nude for Playgirl

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/03/16/art.levi.gi.jpg caption="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.

    What trashy people they are–his family and the Palins who associated with his family. They are all trash.

    How is this political news? Shouldn't this be in the celebrity/sleeze journalism section of CNN? You know, the sensationalist aspect of CNN is really getting to be absurd. I'm thinking of getting my news elsewhere...

    He showed his character and his rear end about his child and the childs mother .He might just as well keep doing it and proving the fact he was a horse's rear end from the start which seemed to escape the mothers judgment at a critical moment.

    Levi honey, you don't need to spend all of that extra time at the gym. You are hot enough just the way you are... you would be even hotter though if you were a DEMOCRAT! Then baby!!!

    Maybe he will save a copy so his kid can someday take it to show and tell.

    I have to say, this sort of thing doesn't do any favors for the reputation of the Republican Party.

    the multimedia will sensationalize anything, CNN please stop mentioning anything attached to Palin and focus on Michigan & California as well as other parts of the country in devastation.

    Thank goodness for continuing Palin related news. Otherwise, CNN might just have to report on Obama's "reset" of his Afghan strategy that he "thoroughly thought through" in March 2009 (which resulted in McCrystal's strategy); or Barny Frank's ethic violations being hidden by Pelosi; or the staged photo op with the phoney doctors at the White House; or the US supporting a Hugo Chavez puppet in Honduras; or Obama afraid to upset the Chinese by meeting with the Dali Lama; or Obama selling out the Poles and Czech's to please Putin; or Obama's education Czar that basically ok'ed pedophiles; or ACRON; or......

    Yep, thank goodness for Palin related news.....

    Could someone please explain to me why we as a nation are glamorizing not only teen pregnancy but unprotected premartial sex? How is it that Johnston is becoming a "hero" in all of this, not that it isn't/wasn't Bristol's fault as well, when there really isn't all that much to admire in this kid?

  18. independent turning away from repubs

    And to think that there people out there who wanted this circus of a family, along with their corrupted morals, hatred, and ignorance, to serve as our country's VP.

    The Republican Party is a joke. Pure and simple.

    This stupid kid will do ANYTHING to continue his 15 minutes of fame. Get an education, then get a real job!

    America loves Levi Johnston. We can't get enough of him! He is a fascinating character and outstanding Republican role model for the nation's youth. You have to admit it takes courage to do the things he is doing. Sarah Palin could not be prouder of her former almost-son-in-law.

  22. Obama Rules!

    So Levi will be posing nude in Playgirl, huh. Well, now I know which magazine Rush and Beck will be renewing their subscriptions for.

    Maybe he'll pose wrapped in an American flag and with a shotgun just like Sarah Palin did in her awesome calender last year.

    Hopefully Palin will follow him by stripping for Playboy.

    Levi. you learned your lessons well from Saint Sarah of the Silly on how to make your 15 minutes expand and then jump at any opportunity to make a buck!
