BRISTOL'S EX TALKS ABOUT PALIN'S RESIGNATION
The former fiance of Gov. Sarah Palin's 18-year-old daughter says he thinks he knows why the Alaska governor is resigning — concerns over money. Levi Johnston, 19, whose wedding to Bristol Palin was called off earlier this year, says he believes the governor is resigning over personal finances. [He's 19 and a spurned lover, no bias at all, right?]In related news, check out this satirical video that doesn't seem quite so satirical.
..."I think the big deal was the book. That was millions of dollars," said Johnston, who has had a strained relationship with the family but now says things have improved. [Really? You're talking about their finances and things are improving? The Palins must be crazy if that warms their hearts.]
..."It is interesting to learn Levi is working on a piece of fiction while honing his acting skills," Palin family spokeswoman Meghan Stapleton said in an e-mail to The Associated Press. [And yet another reliable source... who is prone to a little bit of snark.]
...Johnston also is pursuing his own book deal. He is working as a carpenter while also pursuing a movie deal. [Was this news-worthy? Can the AP not get better sources than this?]
