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.

  1. This is the guy CNN relies on for Palin commentary

    So now Palin's dumb and this guy is a genius and will be hailed by CNN, meanwhile CNN.com will continue to pound Sarah Palin for any reason they can think of.

    Notice a commonality against the two biggest critics of the Palin family... (Letterman and Johnston) They're both perverted.

    It's obvious the Palins knew what this guy was about before we did. Perhaps the Palin's aren't as dumb as viewers say they are. They seem to be holding their heads up while their critics have to hide behind the media's cover.

    Between the lame pistachio commercial and now this, he is really proving he is one classy individual!! A better choice, perhaps, would be to become educated and stop making a fool of himself.

    Makes perfect sense for Playgirl to feature this "loser", he's such a ding-dong and a useful idiot for the left.

    Why do people still care about this nobody. Seriously, he is a nobody and people need to stop wasting their time with him.

    why is this on the political ticker? Shouldn't it be under 'stupid things done by inconsequential people?'

    Where are his parents? What kind of life is this young man getting into? This is all due to Governor Palin and her "screw whomever" policy. Had she realized (when she accepted the offer to be a running mate for John McCain) that her family came first, this young man would not have been thrown into the spotlight. What a shame. Facebook that "quitter" Palin!

    Is this really news that we care about? It must be a slow day in the media.

    It's amazing what people will do for money!!
    But if the world has to endure a Sarah Palin memoir (yuukkk!), then I guess anything can go....even a naked Levi!!!!

    At what point will the media stop giving this unemployed, high school drop-out, unwed father all this attention? Is knocking up a teenage girl what qualifies a person for fame these days? Levi, stay home, get a job and support your child!

    He's trying to milk his celebrity for every penny he can - just like Palin.

    Today is a sad day for America.....First Mother-in-Law struts her stuff in a pageant bikini and then incites a 'Country First' race riot...and now son-in-law drops trough for Playgirl.

    It's time to close the book on Palin Inc.

    Isn't he VP-nominee Palin's son-in-law?What kind of family does she have where her daughter gets pregnant out of wedlock and her son-in-law becomes a model for Playgirl?

    An old joke referred to Sarah Palin as a "post turtle." You know: when you see a turtle on top of a post, you know it didn't get there by itself, and that it won't stay there long.

    I don't personally think that applies to Palin, who did work herself up as high as governor. But it definitely applies to this kid, who obviously could not keep his manhood in his pocket, and whose only claim to fame is that he knocked up the Republican vice presidential candidate's daughter.

    Of course, he didn't realize he was doing that. He was just thinking with the wrong end of his spine when it happened. He was, is, and always will be, an irresponsible jerk looking for another piece of meat.

    Then it will be Todd, Bristol and eventually Sarah will join in posing.
    Then, finally, the Republicans will get want they really want to see and we all can move on with real legitimate people to govern this country.
    Follow the money, honey pie.
