Palin Family Circus News - Thursday, August 26, 2010

Breaking news: "Levi Johnston says he's never lied before:"

ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Levi Johnston, the father of Sarah Palin's grandson, says he wishes he hadn't apologized for telling lies about the former Alaska governor because he's "never lied about anything."

Johnston says in an interview on CBS' "The Early Show" to air Friday that he wishes that he hadn't issued the apology to Palin. He acknowledged last month that he told lies last year about Palin and her family after splitting with Bristol Palin, Palin's daughter.

The apology came after the two became engaged for the second time. Shortly after the apology, the couple split again.

Johnston says the apology made him sound like a liar.

We may hear more when Levi appears on "The Early Show," tomorrow.

Bristol Palin is still in the news. E!Online is reporting:

It's the Dancing With The Stars casting that no one saw coming!

We can report to you exclusively that Sarah Palin's 19-year-old daughter Bristol Palin has been cast on the 11th season of DWTS, set to premiere Sept. 20, according to sources. ...

"Is Bristol Palin Dancing Her Mother's Presidential Prospects Into Oblivion?"

... Just one problem: the family. Palin can’t seem to control it. As she conceivably gets set to tango with Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee for the chance to lead the free world, her daughter will be hoofing it with David Hasselhoff. Meanwhile, Levi files to run for mayor of Wasilla, Sarah Palin's old job. ...

... if she wants to run for president, this mama grizzly needs to start getting tough with her own cubs.

CBS has a report, 'Sarah Palin Will "Go Down in History like McCarthy," Says Labor Leader,' about AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka's speech in Alaska:

When it comes to Palin, he plans to say, according to prepared remarks released this morning, "you just have to laugh -- but it's not really funny." ...

... "Quite frankly, America works because lots of people contribute lots of ideas--that's good--even when some of them are just plain wrong," he will add. "But people need to come to the table in good faith. That's not Sarah Palin. She'll go down in history like McCarthy. Palinism will become an ugly word." ...

Sarah Palin is now claiming that Massachussetts Republican Senator Scott Brown wouldn't be tolerated in Alaska. (video at the link.) But Scott Brown's spokeswoman has responded. "Senator Brown's votes are based on what's in the best interests of Massachusetts and he has made his priorities job creation, controlling spending, and reducing the deficit," Gail Gitcho said in a statement. "All Republicans can agree on that."

Finally, California State University, Stanislaus, says it cannot comply with a judge's order to release Sarah Palin's contract to speak at the university, because it doesn't have the contract. But here is is: An article with a link to the contract. "No Plexiglass or thin lecterns, please. If Speaker is seated on-stage at a table (sic) customer to ensure that the table is skirted."

The story (and article's title) at Seattle's Post Intelligencer changed while I was working on this, so the quotes may not match what is there now. (The Levi never lied story)
