Palin's grandbaby dad: "I'm going to leak some things on her."

The father of Sarah Palin's grandson "says he doesn't want to hurt Sarah Palin but he knows some things that could do just that," CBS News gushed Tuesday morning by way of plugging Wednesday's "exclusive" interview with Levi Johnston on "The Early Show."

Want more? We've got it, compliments of CBS:

"The Early Show's" Maggie Rodriguez asked Johnston about Palin's new book. Which, BTW, Palin herself will plug on the Nov. 16 episode of Oprah Winfrey's syndicated talk show -- which, in one of those extraordinary coincidences, is distributed by -- CBS!

"Sounds like you really resent her now," she asks Levi during the interview, which was taped in advance.

"Well now I've heard all the things she's said. You know, the Sarah Palin I knew before, it was -- it was her putting on a front, it was her being fake to me and now that everything's slowly coming out and I'm hearing more things, you know, and things she's said and done, you know, I see the real Palin," Levi responds, before stepping through the looking glass:

Maggie: Are you hurt by all this?

Levi: I was yeah, and now its just kind of like, alright, well now its my turn.

Maggie: What do you mean by that?

Levi: Well its like Vanity Fair. I'm gonna go out, I told a little bit of stuff and you know, I'm just not going to take it anymore.

Maggie: But you really sound like somebody who's dead set on hurting these people the way they hurt you.

Levi: No, I'm not really in it to hurt them though.

Maggie: That's what it sounds like...somebody whose bent on revenge and getting even, 'now it's my turn'.

Levi: Well that's part of it, I guess, but at the same time, you know, if she's going to go out there and say things to me, about me, I'm going to leak some things on her. I mean that's just how it is.

Yes, a super-rare instance of a source "outing" himself on national television. Nicely played, Johnston!

In addition to knocking up Bristol, is he now going to take credit for doing Sarah too? That'll be hilarious!

i think Katie Couric "outed" Palin when she asked her simple questions and Palin couldn't put two sentences together that made sense.

we all saw the real Palin...she needs everyone to tell her what to say and she will memorize it and regurgitate it without understanding it.

Sarah Palin, the GOP and John McCain's campaign used Levi Johnston as prop during the 2008 campaign and they used him as window dressing in an attempt to legitimze Bristol Palin's pregnancy. Frankly, Sarah has nobody but herself to blame for this fiasco.

Levi's looks certainly reflect a lot of young men in Alaska; much more so than the cougar who wore mini skirts and pimpy boots before him.

Levi will be known as a folk hero throughout Alaska when he tells the world that "no Alaskans weren't making things up"! You see, someone has to have the pistachios to say enough!

I'm beginning to feel sorry for Palin, having to contend with the likes of johnston, an ignoramus of the first rank. On the other hand, this guy almost makes Palin look intelligent.

A photo of Levi and Sarah making love would throw the Earth off its axis. For the sake of family values let us hope that they were never lovers.

Seriously, this guy is STILL getting airtime. Quite obviously an attempt to continue to bring down Sarah even more. This is ridiculous that people still put him on TV.

Just think, Jennifer flowers couldnt even get a reporter to say "hello" to her, and she had audiotape of the president.

This kid keeps on saying "I am going to leak something." That statement alone tells me to not give him the venue nor the time.

Posted by: mjno | October 27, 2009 6:49 PM | Report abuse

I could personally not care less about anything Mr. Johnson has to say, though I realize that there's an audience for just about anything (including for the former Governor's soon-to-be-released book). However, like mjno, I find Mr. Johnson's comment, "...I'm going to leak some things on her" offensive.

If he wants to say something, fine; say it; if he wants to reveal something, fine; reveal it. But to say "I'm going to leak some things"? I'm waiting to next hear "nanny, nanny, woo-woo, I'm telling on you-you." Better Mr. Johnson says directly what he wants to say, writes his own book if he wants, or be quiet and simply distance himself from the former governor and try to be a father to his son to the best of his ability. But please quit with the "I'm going to leak some things..."

Is there a way for the public to order a paternety test for Trig to determine if Levi is the father or her busband is. Though I stil; do not believe she can be the mother. If she was the mother than the doctor needs to have his medical license revoked.

There is no way she could go into to labor in Dallas, get on a flight, which takes 11 hr travel time or longer to get back to her home, and have a baby given she had the other children. Its impossible.

What a LOSER.
Who is going to listen to opinions from a drop out 18 year old who doesn't have the smarts to put a condom on?
His mother?

He needs to remember that even though Sarah Palin is a public figure, he is NOT protected by the constitution if he LIES.

How junior high this all is.

Ok group, He talks like most young men everywhere with the "ya know", but he like many who lived in Wasilla, Alaska could make your heads whip from side to side with the dirt on the Palin family !!! There should really be a book written from Wasilla folks it would really be a eye opener. Sara has a whole lot she would not want out there.She is not a bad person but needs to talk with her maker for some of the things she and Todd have done.The X business parter alone could make more money than Levi. But the point is who should Care? Why even buy the book? Who is she really? Well we here say just someone who talked her way up to office then ran like hell when it got hard to manage all with Todd not wanting to be the house father. And not have Sara has the boss both at work and home. So if they keep making news the next big store will not surprise you

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That never happened. She was in Texas when her amniotic fluid leaked a bit. She called her doctor and decided to fly back to Alaska. She was never in labor in Texas or on the flight. Her doctor had to induce labor the following day in the hospital.

"...we all saw the real Palin...she needs everyone to tell her what to say and she will memorize it and regurgitate it without understanding it."

To be truthful and accurate, one need only substitute Obamma for Palin's name. Never have we had president so wholly dependent on speech writers and a teleprompter, even relying on one in the WH press room. Articulate? Soaring? Only when scripted to be so by his handlers. That is not inspirational leadership.

It is all great fun. Let the kid milk it for all its worth, just as Palin is doing. They are two of the same cloth. Anyone stupid enough to buy her book deserves the punishment of reading it. I hope Levi becomes a millionaire off this broad, who is best suited to work behind a cosmetic counter.

Why are some of you so quick to discount this young man? He is the father of at least one of Palin's grandchildren, perhaps two, and was dragged into the fray of the RNC along with Palin's children with no thought given to their well-being or need for some semblance of privacy.

Palin was basking in the lights and it fed her insatiable need for adulation--at any cost. She only used the children, especially fixating on her pregnant daughter, who must have been dying little deaths inside for this public outing. And of course there was Trig, a Downs Syndrome baby, who was paraded in front of lights, crowds yelling at all hours with no thought or care for his special needs. Absolutely None Whatsoever.

This Palin has no honest or true heart or caring or love. She is simply a crude, stupid, wannabe who has a past that was not vetted or researched at all by RNC.

If she has been, we would not have had the misfortune of knowing this inept puppet. We would not have know how gullible and non-thinking a small part of society could be. We would not have seen how ugly, hateful, vile and just plain stupid, gullible this small portion of America was. Thank you Sarah Palin.

She is a sham. Facebook? She couldn't answer very simple questions. She bombed in Hong Kong. A big Joke. Where are those "thousands of offers" to speak now? Uh, gone, vanished, bye, bye. Ghosts are writing on FB. I would love to see her back up what she "wrote", have questions asked, and have her comment on the specifics of what was written. She can't--because others have filled the pages of FB with their thoughts.

Of course, she is so deluded that she probably thinks she actually penned these words. She seems to have a learning disability that prevents her from talking in a coherent, sensible, grammatically correct manner. She's a fraud and will be found out as a con artist, grifter, user of people. She displays all the characteristics of a Narcissist. She is a textbook case. But, there are some who buy into her lies and also lie to themselves. Sarah Palin deserves to be outed for the fraud she is. No more, no less.

Go Levi. The ball is in your court now.

Sarah Palin has no one to blame but herself for this travesty. She dragged a teen ager onto the world stage in order to shore up her own version of "family values" to an adoring crowd who lapped it up. Better had she left the family in Alaska while she campaigned then to bring then forward as she did to be used as props.

Going "tit for tat" with an immature, uneducated teen ager at her age is nothing short of stupid. If this is her idea of judgment and critical thinking than it says more about her than him.

joan,

I sense a bit of jealousy on your part. Are you ashamed of your life or are you just envious of Sarah Palin's?

Hmmmmm....

Reading through all these comments, I can see that Sarah still scares the hell out of the liberals in this country, that she might someday attain a national position that could put an end to entitlement programs and government hand-outs that the rest of us pay for is enough to keep the chattering class engaged in an all out assault on her.
Give it up! Obama is NOT delivering on any of his promises or the lies he told during his campaign. He will be a one term president if; he makes it that far.

I can't imagine why Palin would "scare the hell out of liberals", as some here are saying... she's so damn entertaining! She's come to represent just what the GOP has become...a big joke. So keep dishing it out, Levi...and y'all pass the pop-corn!

Seriously, is anyone surprised about how things have gone for this 19 year-old and his relationship with this phony lady and her family? What reasonable person, who saw young Levi during the campaign, believed for a second that he was genuinely excited about becoming a dutiful husband and father at 18? Yet that is what Palin's gullible followers needed to hear, so the kid was forced on to the stage to join the family's performance, all for the benefit of Sarah Palin...just as everyone has apparently been forced to do for years. Disturbing as it may be, I think this lady would use anyone --including the baby she refers to as "retarded"-- for her own advancement and benefit. But more disturbing is that she is what John McCain and his party were willing to give us for vice-president.
