I’ll be the first to admit that a fame-seeking teenage boy is not likely to be the most trustworthy informant on the character of his ex-girlfriend’s mom. Still, Levi Johnston has made some claims about Sarah Palin in the current issue of Vanity Fair that are, at the very least, highly intriguing.
In a first-person essay, Johnston claims that Palin made jokes her “retarded baby”; spent the majority of her time holed up in her room in her pajamas, “watching house shows and wedding shows on TV;” does not know how to hunt or even shoot a gun; fights constantly with her husband Todd; and (my personal favorite) almost never went to her son’s hockey games.
Certainly every family has their dysfunctions, and no mother would relish having her personal flaws described by her teenage daughter’s estranged baby daddy, but then, most mothers have not attempted world domination by painting themselves as America’s Favorite Hockey Mom.
