Don’t let the photo fool you: I’m no Sarah Palin fan. (Duh.) But is there any question that Levi Johnston—remember, Palin’s grandbaby daddy—is looking out for No. 1?
He’s been exploiting the media circuit for a few months, and now he looks to be stepping up his d-list game. First stop, CBS’ “The Early Show.” Here’s an excerpt of Johnston’s interview with Maggie Rodriguez, courtesy of The Washington Post:
“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 whose 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.
