Here’s a story that’s just breaking now – Levi Johnston, the 17-year-old boyfriend of Bristol Palin will accompany the Palins to the RNC tomorrow.
Honestly, I think the media is beginning to blow this story way too far out of proportion. This is most likely my last post on Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston (other than perhaps a congratulations in a few months), but the media has just gone insane. They’ve gone around finding his Myspace page and quoting it (which there’s nothing wrong with that – it’s a public page on the Internet – I’m just pointing out that there are more important things going on in the world than the Myspace page of the boyfriend of the daughter of the Vice Presidential Candidate).
On another note, Sherry Johnston, Levi’s mother was asked if Bristol and Levi had been pushed into getting married. She told reporters, “Absolutely not.” She said that they’d been planning to get married and that “this is just a bonus.”
Well, that’s good. The last thing I’d want for those 2 is to enter a forced marriage (or even not a forced marriage but getting married because they feel like they should for the good of their families).
I wish the best of luck to Bristol, Levi, and the whole Johnston and Palin families. Now, since I can’t be there, go have fun at convention (but not too much fun!) – I wish I were there!
