Sarah Palin Reacts To Bristol & Levi's EngagementMara Siegler
It’s no secret that Sarah Palin hates Levi Johnston almost as much as Obama’s politics and the liberal media. After his split with Bristol, Levi created a media circus. Most of it focused on his Playgirl spread, but he also stated that Sarah and Todd Palin were having marital problems and that the Mama Grizzly referred to her son Trig as her “retarded baby.” It was all out war.
Yet, last week Levi apologized for his words, stating that they were mostly false, and he disowned his sister Mercedes who has been spreading rumors that the couple got pregnant intentionally. Has Sarah forgiven him? How is she taking the news? Is she ready to get out her shot gun and hunt him down like a wild moose?
As part of the couples Us Weekly announcement, complete with weird US cover in which the pair are dressed like door to door religious missionaries, Bristol says “It is intimidating and scary just to think about what her reaction is going to be. Hopefully she will jump on board.”
In a statement to NBC News, the Palins said, “Bristol at 19 is now a young adult. We obviously want what’s best for our children. Bristol believes in redemption and forgiveness to a degree most of us struggle to put in practice in our daily lives.”
In the long run, this will be best for Bristol and Levi’s son Tripp. And who doesn’t love family values more than Sarah?
The couple plan to wed soon, possibly within the next month. Until then, they are living separately and practicing abstinence.
