Levi Johnston continues to exist

You know the story about the frog and the scorpion, right? The scorpion wants to cross a river and asks the frog for a ride. The frog says, “But you’ll sting me.” The scorpion says, “I totally won’t.” So the frog lets the scorpion hop on his back, gets halfway across the river, and then the scorpion stings him. As they both start to drown, the frog asks the scorpion why the hell he did that. “I’m a scorpion,” comes the reply. “It’s my nature.”

Same deal with Levi Johnston, except without the scorpion’s more likable qualities. Being a two-faced jackass is Levi’s nature, and it’s ridiculous to think he’s going to change. A mere month ago he was apologizing to the Palins for being a big fat liar. Since then he’s reconciled with Bristol Palin, broken up again when she found out he’s filming a music video mocking her family, there’s maybe another illegitimate kid or two thrown in there, and now this (courtesy of Variety):

Johnston will run for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska — yes, the same job that propelled Sarah Palin to governor of that state (and later, the vice presidential nomination) — in a new reality project being pitched by Stone and Co.

“Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor’s Office” will center on Johnston’s newfound fame as the baby daddy to Palin’s grandson, Tripp…

Johnston, who describes himself as “half red-neck, half Hollywood,” said he hoped the show would correct what he believes are misconceptions about him in the media.

Half-redneck, half-Hollywood, all-@$$hole. Dude, even I have more self-respect than this guy, and I’m a blogger.

P.P.S. “Get him away from me.”

    What he should be doing is getting the hell out of Alaska. To somewhere Todd’s snow machine can’t go and before Bristol’s big brother comes home.

    Red Eye may just be the greatest TV show in the history of the medium. Gilligan’s Island, Rocky and Bulwinkle, that 24 hour thing that went on for like 4 frickin years, those guys that rummage through barns for resale stuff, The Simpsons, all must take a back seat to the masterful robot presentations (and CC Cupps). Well maybe not Rocky. That show rocked.

    His vote count will be the exact inverse of Sarah Palin’s popularity numbers in Wasilla which I would guess to be pretty high, i.e. I don’t think he’ll get a lot of votes. On the other hand, being a lying two faced jackass makes politics a natural career choice for Levi, although he’d have better luck in San Francisco.

    What a tool. Maybe he can get a job as a waiter at the gay bar being proposed near the ground zero mosque when his 15 minutes are up.
