Levi Johnston is a liar

Font Size:

Or so he claims. He’s trying to make amends with the Palins, apparently, by admitting that he made up all that crap he said about them. And where else would a prevaricating media creature like Levi Johnston make his confession but People magazine?

“Last year, after Bristol and I broke up, I was unhappy and a little angry. Unfortunately, against my better judgment, I publicly said things about the Palins that were not completely true,” he tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I have already privately apologized to Todd and Sarah. Since my statements were public, I owe it to the Palins to publicly apologize…”

Johnston and the former vice presidential candidate had been engaged in a war of words, with the 20-year-old accusing Palin of complaining about her job as governor of Alaska and claiming “there was a lot of talk of divorce” in the Palin household…

“So to the Palin family in general and to Sarah Palin in particular, please accept my regrets and forgive my youthful indiscretion,” Johnston says in the statement. “I hope one day to restore your trust.”

Say it ain’t so, Ricky Hollywood! Does this mean Kathy Griffin doesn’t want to hang out with him anymore? I think that’s what they call a motive.

Okay, so, is Levi telling the truth about lying, or is he lying about stuff that was actually the truth? Andrew Sullivan must be wracking whatever’s left of his brains right now, gazing longingly at the Winter 2010 Playgirl and weeping. It’s okay, Andy. It’s okay. They can’t take away the sweet, sweet memories…



P.S. Click here for all the proof you need that Andrew Sullivan is a sucker. (No pun intended!) “When I got to meet Johnston, I asked him simply how he seemed so calm as a nineteen year old up against an international celebrity with millions of dollars and every pimp in the ‘publishing’ and political industries trying to suck up to her. ‘Because I’m tellin’ the truth,’ was his simple, and immediate answer.”

P.P.S. Andy speaks! “For the record, nothing he said struck me as in any way far-fetched.”

P.P.P.S. Mary Katharine Ham: “As I once told a friend in the media, a good rule of thumb is probably that a source’s credibility is inversely proportional to the number of times he’s shown his dong in public.”

P.P.P.P.S. CBS? Hello?
