Redneck VP And Family

Posted in American Politics with tags on September 6, 2008 by parimon

The bad-boy image of Levi Johnston, 18, the boyfriend of Bristol Palin, 17, added to the pressure surrounding Senator John McCain after his decision to choose Mrs Palin as a running mate in the Republican bid for the White House.

The details follow the disclosure that, Mrs Palin, 44, had once addressed a party conference of the Alaska Independence Party, which has been pushing for Alaskans to be allowed to vote on whether the state can secede from the United States. The McCain campaign, however, denied she had ever been a party member, providing documents that she had been a Republican since 1982.

There were also reports that Mrs Palin, who has portrayed herself as a fighter against corruption and a doughty opponent of wasteful government spending, secured $27 million (£15million) in federal funds for the small town of Wasilla, where she was mayor until two years ago.

Democrats seized on the claims about Mrs Palin as evidence that Mr McCain had poor judgment because he had failed to vet her properly.

However, senior McCain aides said that a vetting team had been in Alaska before the Arizona senator made his choice. “You can’t confuse secrecy with lack of vetting,” said one adviser.

A dozen McCain aides have been sent to Alaska to help Mrs Palin’s family and to rebut the claims against her.

Some Republicans linked to the attacks believed that Mr McCain had sacrificed thoroughness in the vetting process so that secrecy could be maintained.

The surprise choice of Mrs Palin could make or break Mr McCain’s battle for the White House. Republican activists are delighted that a strongly anti-abortion mother of five who is an avid hunter has been chosen.

But Democrats scent blood and believe they can paint Mrs Palin as “Dan Quayle in a dress” – the description applied to her by Karen Thurman, a former member of the House of Representatives.

Mr Quayle was chosen as George W Bush’s running mate in 1988 after a cursory vetting process failed to find serious weaknesses in his character and record.

Christian conservatives have covered Mrs Palin with praise for supporting her daughter, who is five months pregnant and is due to marry Mr Johnston. There has been criticism of Democrats and the media, which is being accused of exploiting a private issue.

“They have been using this 17-year-old girl as a battering ram against her mother and against social conservatives,” said Gary Bauer, a leading evangelical and former Republican presidential hopeful.

“It’s disgraceful. All families wrestle with these issues and try to teach their kids the best they can. But children make mistakes. The whole pro-life movement is built around helping women in crisis pregnancies. We don’t judge these women. If we did, they wouldn’t come to us.”

Associated Press reported that Mr Johnston plans to join the family of the Republican vice presidential candidate at the GOP convention.

Levi Johnston’s mother said her 18-year-old son left Alaska on Tuesday morning. Sherry Johnston also said there has been no pressure put on her son to marry Bristol Palin.

“Absolutely not,” Sherry Johnston told reporters outside the family’s Wasilla home. Johnston said the two teens already had plans to marry before they knew she was pregnant.

On his MySpace page, Mr Johnston, an avid ice hockey player, proudly declares: “I’m a ——‘ redneck” who would kick ass if anyone gave him trouble. I live to play hockey. I like to go camping and hang out with the boys, do some fishing,” he said on the social networking the site.

Poignantly, in the one part of the site where it asks about children, he wrote, “I don’t want kids.”

The web page was removed yesterday and appeared not to have been accessed for a year.

Bill Sturdevant, coach of the Wasilla Warriors ice hockey team, told the New York Daily News: “He was a good kid to be around, with lots of friends. He was well-liked.”

Last year Johnston had to pay a $370 bail after state troopers caught him catching salmon out of season in Moose Lake, a popular Alaskan fishing location.  Levi wrote in his convention bog some very interesting things like this ” Dear Dude,

There is some seriously WEIRD FUCKIN SHIT goin on up in here!!!

So I get off the plane in Minnesota and the first thing I know some creepy old dude who smells like my grandma is gettin up in my grille. I am totally goin to give him a righteous beat-down and then I see it’s that John McCain dude from TV who’s always approvin his fuckin message.

So I give him this look like, “Don’t get in my face or I will SERIOUSLY fuck you up,” and dude looks back at me like, “I’ve ate Viet Cong bigger than you for breakfast.” So I like totally back off. Dude, if I’m gonna get fucked up no way am I gonna get fucked up by someone older than Larry King.

Things go from weird to fuckin WEIRD AS ALL SHIT as I get like the totally evil eye from Bristol’s old man Todd who looks like he wants to shove an oil pipeline up my fuckin ass. Shit, I said I’d marry her, what the fuck is wrong with you, dude??? Back off or I’ll fuck you up.

So I TOTALLY try to stay out of the way of Bristol’s mom, who looks like she’s gonna go medieval on my ass, like do me way worse than that trooper she got canned. For a minute I feel like I am TOTALLY GOING TO SHIT MYSELF, but than I think of thoughts to calm me down, like that time in middle school when I fucked that guy up who tried to fuck with me.

Dude, the one thing I don’t like understand at all is why Bristol’s mom even WANTS to be fuckin vice-president and all. Right now, being Governor of Alaska and shit, she could totally invade Russia if she wanted to. It’s that fuckin close.

With all this crazy shit going on I didn’t even like get a chance to talk to Bristol. I wanted to ask her how her summer was, shit like that, but every time I opened my mouth that McCain dude gave me another look like, “You say word one and I will rearrange your fuckin face you fuckin piece of hockey shit.” So I don’t say a fuckin thing.

Gotta go now. One thing’s for sure, dude – when this week is over I am totally getting wasted!!! “Peace out,” 

 How can you not make fun of this guy!!! As a proud Northern City dweller this just proves to me people from small country towns who hasnt been anywhere in their lives to be complete ignorant hillbilly rednecks who talk out of their asses. I give Levi’s marriage to Bristol a couple of years then… OVER!!!!
