Sarah Palin Tears Levi Johnston A New One

Ok, that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but this isn’t exactly the juiciest of political catfights.

People.com reports that Levi Johnston had some choice words about his ex-mother-in-law, Sarah Palin, whom he claims referred to her son as ‘retarded’ (little Trig has Down’s syndrome), and implied that this was just the tip of the iceberg of juicy dirt he has on her.

Palin shot back with a statement of her own, tagging Johnston as the attention-whore he really is by saying “those who would sell their body for money reflect a desperate need for attention.”

Day-um!  I loathe to agree with the ex-governor, but we’re talking about a kid who squired Kathy Griffin to the Teen Choice Awards, posed for topless pictures in GQ with his baby, and is currently planning to pose for Playgirl.

Anyone who makes the disgraced former governor of Alaska look good needs to rethink some choices.
