Levi Johnston: "Me and Mrs. Palin"

I really shouldn't have any interest at all in what Levi Johnson has to say about anything, but, in his recent interview with Vanity Fair, he does give some indication as to why Sarah Palin so dramatically quit the Alaskan governorship:

Sarah was sad for a while. She walked around the house pouting. I had assumed she was going to go back to her job as governor, but a week or two after she got back she started talking about how nice it would be to quit and write a book or do a show and make “triple the money.” It was, to her, “not as hard.” She would blatantly say, “I want to just take this money and quit being governor.” She started to say it frequently, but she didn’t know how to do it. When she came home from work, it seemed like she was more and more stressed out.
So there we have it. There was no great 2012 plan, there was a simple wish to cash in on the position she found herself in.

You have to give her her due, she is a true Republican.

And he also sheds some light on where all those rumours came from that Sarah was trying to cover up her daughter's pregnancy:
Sarah told me she had a great idea: we would keep it a secret—nobody would know that Bristol was pregnant. She told me that once Bristol had the baby she and Todd would adopt him. That way, she said, Bristol and I didn’t have to worry about anything. Sarah kept mentioning this plan. She was nagging—she wouldn’t give up. She would say, “So, are you gonna let me adopt him?” We both kept telling her we were definitely not going to let her adopt the baby. I think Sarah wanted to make Bristol look good, and she didn’t want people to know that her 17-year-old daughter was going to have a kid.
It all comes out in the end, if someone is willing to wave enough cash in front of their faces. And Palin can hardly condemn Johnson for following in her own footsteps, can she?
