Disclosure

HaHaHa, GOT YOU

You really think it would be that easy to find info on this guy?

This is a parody site, and for entertainment purposes only! None of the information on this site has been verified as accurate.

Hi, I’m Levi Johnston. I just happen to have the same name as somebody who’s in the news. I live in Phoenix, AZ (the opposite spectrum from Alaska eh?). I’m a web developer/programmer/analyst…pick a title…any title… Need some work done on a website, or having issues with a database? Email me at knocked.up@levi johnston.com with the subject (From Palin), and I’ll see what emails I can get to. Here’s a funny fact. I did go to Alaska a few months ago’. Unfortunately, I was about 800 miles short of going to Wasilla. I went as far north as Juneau on the cruise ship.

FAQ:

How did you acquire the domain name?
Hi, I’m Levi Johnston, and I am not a hockey player. <— Don’t know if you caught that part. Levi Johnston is my real name. I’ve had this domain name for about 5 years. I used to have information about myself on this site. I found out about this snafu, and asked myself a question. When thousand of people seeking rumor information go on the internet, type in “Levi Johnston” in any search engine, and click on the first link, what should they see? I decided little bits and pieces about my life wasn’t very interesting. So, I decided to (quickly) create this parody site.

How did you know about this?
I had an instant messenger flash application running on my website. Somebody IM’d me asking if I was the hockey player, and it all came about after that. Honestly, if he did not share my name, I wouldn’t have even known about the entire incident. I’m not one to follow rumors, and things that don’t matter.

Why did you do this/create this site?
I do not have a political agenda. I wouldn’t even know about this incident if he didn’t share my name. The only thing I cared about was this website, and what would happen to it. If I left it the way it was, it would have had an increased hosting bill, and no entertainment for the visitor, or myself. So, I decided to do this instead.

Why should I hire you? – You sound like a complete ditz in those blog posts!
Yes, to try to convince people that it’s not a joke, I did degrade my grammar/spelling a bit. Also, I’ve been working on this late into the night now, and I’m not thinking straight.

Why is your site down?
I guess I shouldn’t answer this on a page within the site…but here goes…I have been (insert many various news sites and search engines here)-dotted. I probably won’t get slashdotted, but I see a few stories on digg…I see many news sites having “Levi Johnston.” Since I am the first site that pulls up for “Levi Johnston” on any search engine, here comes the traffic.

Why is your site up?
Woohoo, that means that my optimization worked – for now. When I found out about this, I installed wordpress, found a quick hockey-related theme (The other Levi’s a hockey player), and started adding pre-dated posts that would make sense. Unfortunately, just a few hours into it, I couldn’t access the post editing page anymore. I installed WP-Cache. Great, it’s working again. I created a few more posts, and it slowly came to a crawl. I uninstalled WP-Cache, and installed WP-Super-Cache. That’s where we are at now. This site is hosted on a shared server with many other sites. If it remains up that means I haven’t run out of bandwidth yet (well, it is early in the month still), and the cache is helping out with the processor.

HaHa, you fooled me, this site is EPIC!!!
Thank you, I appreciate your comments. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I’m sure it’s the most epic-est thing I could have done with this site. I’m sure you didn’t want to see boring details about somebody whose name is the same, but didn’t screw Bristol.

You suck, this is obviously fake.
Welcome to the inside joke. Yes, this is fake. I’m sorry you feel about me that way, do you kiss your mother with that mouth? There are many many other things to do on the internet than waste your time typing these hurtful comments.

What party are you with?
I believe in voting for who you think deserves your vote based on your beliefs. I am ‘registered’ as a democrat. I used to be registered as an independent, but – go figure – nobody cares about the independent voters, so I never received ballots, and I had to figure out where to go to vote on my own. I registered as a democrat, and I get things in the mail, and calls all the time about when to vote, how to vote (mail/in person), and WHERE the voting location is. This is the ONLY reason I’m registered as a democrat. I do not vote on party lines.

Who are you voting for?
You should not care who I’m voting for. Please make informed decisions based on the candidates history of truthfulness, their ideas, beliefs, etc. etc. I am not going to disclose who I’m voting for because I don’t keep afloat on the latest news in politics. Do your own research, and really look into each of the candidates history of truthfulness, ideas, and all that.

Is anybody paying you to do this???
Short answer: No
Long answer: I know I’ve mentioned it before, but I’ll mention it again to make sure you understand. My name really is Levi Johnston. If I would’ve left up the site that was here just before the news broke, my site would be down, and anybody who viewed it would not get any entertainment out of it. I decided to make a parody site. I do have google adsense on the site, but it will not come close to paying the hosting fees (nobody clicks ads when they’re looking for a juicy scoop on somebody famous — they’re just not in a buying mood). Hey, if I gave you a little chuckle, or you passed the site around the office or forwarded to friends online, and want to show your appreciation, send me an email…knocked.up@levi johnston.com with the subject (From Palin). If you feel you must give something monetary to me, just donate your money to one of the many great causes on this earth – Here’s one to help Palin out: National Down Syndrome Society. Hey! It’s even tax-deductable.

Various Mentions:

Wired:
“But the few revelations about Johnston are enough for someone to have set up a spoof web page.

Might as well set it up…I’m going to get the traffic anyway.

ValleyWag:
“The twist: levijohnston.com wasn’t registered by an opportunistic domain-name speculator or a political troublemaker.”

Thank you. I didn’t ask for this. Now that it’s here – I’ll make lemonade.

Fight The Palin Smears:
“A particularly disgusting website…This website is a fraud and is intended to deceive visitors into thinking Levi is considering aborting their child. “

Thanks. Unfortunately, I’m not deceiving anybody. Gee, I wonder if it’s because of that BIG BOLD RED headline at the top of each page???

DealBreaker:
“The most poignant piece of analysis you’ll ever read”

I’m actually kind of confused about this page, but what the hell.

Habitus-Here Blog:
“Whatever happened to journalistic accuracy? I was quite appalled with the Straits Times today when I came across a mistake in the article”

It goes on to indicate a Singapore newspaper that does have a print edition quoted my blog as a source for the other Levi Johnston. This was not my intention. However, I am looking to get my hands on a copy of that paper. I would link directly to the article, but it requires a subscription.

CannonFire – Blog:
“…a site which purportedly belongs to Britol Palin’s boyfriend. After exposure as a hoax, the website’s perpetrators quickly added a message proclaiming “This is a parody.” Look at the posts and you’ll see no attempts at humor. This blog was meant to deceive.”

For this blog, I was just going to put a comment on the post of the blog. I decided my readers might be interested to know how I see my site….so here goes.

Nice try, but the disclosure on the Levi Johnston blog was always on the blog, so it wasn’t meant to deceive. The blog posts were meant to be so over the top that it was supposed to be obvious that it was a joke. Then, the reader would try to look around the menus to see if it was admitted to be fake. Unfortunately, some took it at face value, and immediately started submitting comments. This is why the bold red letters at the top of all pages were added after about 12 hours of operation. I repeat, the disclosure page was always there and clearly visible from the main menu.

If you really want to see some deceiving things, look at any onion story. It’s much harder to tell it’s satire. Here’s an example of a story:

http://www.theonion.com/content/news/top_story_on_john_mccain_run_out

Go ahead…Try to find that the story is fake on the page itself. You can’t. It is buried in the menu at the bottom under “Privacy Policy” (Much more vague than Disclosure in the main menu). Once you get to that page, you have to scroll all the way to the bottom again to read “The Onion is a satirical newspaper…” (Much more difficult than bold red letters on the Disclosure page).

If you would have actually read the disclosure page, you would have noticed there were no “perpetrators” (plural). It is one individual (me) who has done nothing ‘wrong’ (assumed from the harsh perpetrator word) except bring entertainment to those obviously seeking it.

Neither party should care about somebody who wasn’t directly influenced by Sarah Palin (Levi Johnston was not directly parented by Sarah). Since I’m getting 15,625% more traffic than average, obviously people do. I did not seek out this information to make this parody site. Honestly, if my website wouldn’t have been affected, I wouldn’t have even known about this guy. My life was interrupted by visitors to my personal blog asking if I was the hockey player. I was getting comments, Instant Messages, and email about it. If I hadn’t set my domain to private shortly after, I’m sure I would’ve received mail and phone calls too. Instead of just continually replying, I decided to give the people (visitors) what they wanted.

If you can’t see the humor in the posts by how over the top they are, then you are simply blinded by rage, and fit into the first category of visitor to my page (See Below)

There are a few types of visitors to the site.

1.> Far Righty’s looking for information on this guy to make sure they have their stories straight when a lefty brings up the subject. They find my site, and either:

  • Believe it’s true. Read the blog posts, read the comments, and reply saying to the other commenters that they are mean. They are blinded by the rage, and can’t see the obvious satire
  • They find out it’s fake. They lambast me for even thinking of this, before even reading the rest of the disclosure on why I did it. Perhaps they even make up silly conspiracies to satisfy their minds. One thought it was setup by the Obama campaign. Another said that obviously, the disclosure was only put up after it was exposed. – haha, oh wait, that was you. Yes, I’m saying your blog is more deceiving than my blog. You blatantly lied about me putting up the disclosure after being exposed. Since the lie is about some crazy loony on the internet (me), instead of a public figure, I guess it’s ok? My site may lie about the things the Hockey Levi did, but at least it discloses that it is not the truth. If I had the personality the other Levi does, I would say “**** YOU!,” but instead I will say “Thank you for your constructive criticism. I will take it into consideration; however, I kindly disapprove of your actions.” Thank you.

2.> Far lefty’s to see if there’s any juicy info on this. They find my site, and either

  • Think it’s real, and go to ridicule who they think to be the hockey Levi.
  • Find out it’s fake, thank me for creating it, thank me for helping the lefty’s campaign, and bash the righty commenters that think it’s real.

3.> Then there’s a group I would put myself in. Someone who does not care about what party lines are, and doesn’t care about the petty bashing from either party. This group of people come to the site because a friend forwarded them the link. They see right through the left/right BS (in the comments). They see that this was way more entertaining than just leaving the site as it would have been. It allows them to see that they have made the right decision to be impartial to party. They see how idiotic it is to fight over things so petty as this. Sometimes, they continue the parody acting like they were this or that person commenting on the blog (such as the various comments from George Bush, Sarah Palin, Condoleezza Rice etc). Others don’t comment, but give themselves a little pat on the back, saying “Thank god I don’t get all worked up over nothing like some of these people.”

Life is too short people! Live well. “Don’t sweat the small stuff – and it’s all small stuff” (Blatently ripped off the title of a book by Dr. Richard Carlson).

  4. TechSavvy (Niles, IL, United States Flag of United States) Says:

    It would surprise me greatly if they don’t prosecute you. The content of your site is, at the very least, slanderous. I don’t support McCain or his VP candidate, but what you have done to promote your business crosses the line. The “real” Levi Johnston (the one in the news) said enough in his MySpace page before they removed it to make him look like the biggest loser ever, and you have shown that you are cast in the same mold.

  5. Levi Johnston (Scottsdale, AZ, United States Flag of United States) Says:

    @TechSavvy
    Why should I have to foot the hosting bill for all this extra traffic? Obviously you’re interested, or want to be entertained by this info. You looked for, and came to the site, no?

    This is hardly promotion of my ‘business.’ It’s a little blip of an ad. It’s not like anybody is going to send any business my way anyway. This is hardly the good recommendation for a project.

    - Will the “real” Levi Johnston please stand up.

    More power to you Levi.

  11. Levi Johnston (Scottsdale, AZ, United States Flag of United States) Says:

    Thanks Mike.

    For reals…I already owned the domain…so why would I just let it crash? I did something fun. Can you handle a little humor?

  12. D.D. (Philadelphia, PA, United States Flag of United States) Says:

    For those squawking that this guy be prosecuted for “slander” and “wire fraud”, the law gives complete immunity to those who satirize or poke fun at public figures. And, like it or not, Levi J. is now very much a public figure.

    What, do you think that all the editors of theonion.com and Mad Magazine ought to be in jail, too?

    This is genius!!! forwarding it to all my friends & coworkers, they’ll die laughing when they see this. you gotta write more dude, there’s so much damn material haha…
    Thanks for making me laugh, you rock!!!

  14. brodart (Brooklyn, NY, United States Flag of United States) Says:

    Dude – I wish you hadn’t admitted to its being a parody. Reading the comments up until this point were hilarious since so many seemed to actually think this blog was real (which also shows how f’in dumb Americans are – therefore also showing why American morons will probably actually vote McCain/Palin into office).

    As for those of you screaming “slander” (it really should be libel, but I can’t expect Moronicans to know the difference), parody is protected speech, so shove it up your evangelical pie holes.

  15. TechSavvy (Niles, IL, United States Flag of United States) Says:

    To D.D.

    Wire fraud = soliciting money, which he does. Satire or not… even if you don’t post a real mailing address, the mere inclusion of a solicitation for money is illegal.

  16. Sheila (Unknown City, , United States Flag of United States) Says:

    Love the site, usually not big on gossip but after getting numerous spam emails about Levi Johnston sex tape I decided to Google the guy. your site is thoroughly entertaining and a much needed distraction from my dull job!

  17. Stephen Cramer (Vancouver, WA, United States Flag of United States) Says:

    Thanks–At first I thought you parodied the comments, too. Nobody could have missed the disclaimers, could they? Then I realized that some people don’t know the meaning of words, like parody, specious, or placebo. How else can one understand not only the comments on this blog, the success of the Onion, or herbal male enhancement products? This is a great site–hope it lasts long enough to demonstrate the twisted pretzel logic of Palin proponents.

    Good job–if I had business to throw your way, I’d do it!!

    Your an object moron and i certianly hope you end up broke and homeless. what a total assclown.. take the site down because out election is not some joke for morons like you who would never lift a finger to fight for this country.. too bad you were not aborted by your mother who raised a poor excuse for a piglet. its not funny and your not funny and i hope you get a shit load of negitive attention perhaps sued..

  21. turd blossom (Littleton, CO, United States Flag of United States) Says:

    There, now you see how to do it Levi… It’s a cakewalk to fool these dumb fundamentalists. I’ve gotten them to vote against their own interests time and time again. They keep believing I’m supporting the faith meanwhile I’m stealing billions right out of their back pockets. (SUCKERS!)

    And you know what… If you do it right you can even get away with smearing real war heros like I did with Kerry and Max Cleland convincing the sheep (oops I mean’t republicans) to vote for an old blowhard asshole like McCain. How’s that for talent?

    no amount of parodying can possibly be more outrageous than what has actually unfolded since Senator McHiggins presented his little political experiment to the world a few days ago — it’s like a dark soap opera…Twin Peaks meets West Wing….

  23. brodart (Brooklyn, NY, United States Flag of United States) Says:

    I love Brett’s comment! What a douche!

    Brett – if your comment is “real”, you should realize that the Republicans made this election a joke by selecting Palin.

    I also refuse to take serious advice from someone who can’t spell to save their life (or at least use spell-check for god’s sake!). Looks to me that you wen to school in Alaska, where they apparently don’t believe in science or learnin’ stuff.

  24. Sarah (Chapel Hill, NC, United States Flag of United States) Says:

    This is pretty amazing. I like that someone called Brett said “Your an object moron.” Something about insulting someone’s intelligence while revealing your lack of basic reading-and-writing skills warms my English-major heart. Way to go, if anyone deserves some misguided fame, it’s you.

  31. Daveman (Twinsburg, OH, United States Flag of United States) Says:

    Really?

    Did you stay up all night thinking of this mindless drivel? And the fact that you had the audacity to make mention of abortion for the sake of traffic to your site is pathetic.

    Change your name, because you should not only deny sharing the name, but now you need to live with the fact that you thought it was funny that you impersonated a guy that impregnated a high school senior.

    Man Levi, you need to have couple of kids and see just how funny it is when someone takes your little princess out, shoves a $5 Denny’s special down her throat and uses her like a F*** doll.

    Then we can all go to some losers site that just got local media attention for statutory and see the camera pan over to you, thinking back, and smiling over your one MAJOR accomplishment in life. Shut it down A**.

  32. Levi Johnston (Scottsdale, AZ, United States Flag of United States) Says:

    No Daveman, I spent all of a few minutes thinking what to write. Most of the time was crash-proofing the site.

    Traffic from the media is negligible. Most of the traffic is from people searching Google for my name, and coming to this page. These people were looking for entertainment, and they found it. So don’t get all worked up over the abortion post getting me more traffic. Unfortunately, some people take the internet too seriously.

    Are you threatening my future kids? I see absolutely no correlation between what you wrote, and what is relevant. Please explain.

    I didn’t choose for you to visit my site, but people were going to do it anyway. I just built a page that would allow me to pay the hosting for this month.

  33. Biscut in the Basket (Hillsborough, NJ, United States Flag of United States) Says:

    Levi

    This must be like hitting the lottery. I suspect this site may crash or some secret service pukes might take it down soon. Enjoy your 15 minutes of fame. The funniest part are the idiots that didn’t see PARODY in big red letters.

    Don’t let he knuckle draggers who don’t get it get you down. This is one of the funniest gigs I’ve ever seen. Perhaps you should ditch the IT thing and start writing. This is much better than that sitcom trash on TV. I hope this strange twist of fate brings you good fortune.

    Peace,
    Mike

  34. brodart (Brooklyn, NY, United States Flag of United States) Says:

    Will the real Levi Johnston stand up?

    Levi (the one who made this site) – I think your parody is amazing and hilarious (and honestly not that mean-spirited). I hope the increased traffic helps you get some advertisers and more work simply for making me laugh today.

  35. Biscut in the Basket (Hillsborough, NJ, United States Flag of United States) Says:

    Levi,

    FYI Biscut in the Basket is hockey slang for a goal. I thought you might not know that. Not much ice in AZ even though they have an NHL team. i thought the name fits well on this site.

    Peace,
    Mike

    Peace

  36. Condoleeza Rice (Prince George, BC, Canada Flag of Canada) Says:

    Levi, I wholeheartedly agree with you having this blog and believe that it reflects the true values of the Republican party.

    If you ever need anything, you have my number.

    Just don’t fuck this up for Palin. If McCain kicks the bucket, I might get a shot at VP before I lose all of my teeth.

  40. Bob Smith (Richardson, TX, United States Flag of United States) Says:

    Amusing and ingenious. I also have to give you credit for your impartiality. With our partisan and stressed environment today, it’s hard to find someone who will tell you to “Do your own research”. Maybe there is hope for us American sheepoles after all.

    What I enjoyed most was the fanatics’ stupidity: How could they fail to notice “This is a parody site, and for entertainment purposes only.” and start ranting? ROFLOL.

  41. The Truth (Brooklyn, NY, United States Flag of United States) Says:

    The Truth About Sarah Palin:

    Dear friends,

    So many people have asked me about what I know about Sarah Palin in the last 2 days that I decided to write something up . . .

    Basically, Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton have only 2 things in common: their gender and their good looks. :)

    You have my permission to forward this to your friends/email contacts with my name and email address attached, but please do not post it on any websites, as there are too many kooks out there . . .

    Thanks,
    Anne

    ABOUT SARAH PALIN

    I am a resident of Wasilla, Alaska. I have known Sarah since 1992. Everyone here knows Sarah, so it is nothing special to say we are on a first-name basis. Our children have attended the same schools. Her father was my child’s favorite substitute teacher. I also am on a first name basis with her parents and mother-in-law. I attended more City Council meetings during her administration than about 99% of the residents of the city.

    She is enormously popular; in every way she’s like the most popular girl in middle school. Even men who think she is a poor choice and won’t vote for her can’t quit smiling when talking about her because she is a “babe”.

    It is astonishing and almost scary how well she can keep a secret. She kept her most recent pregnancy a secret from her children and parents for seven months.

    She is “pro-life”. She recently gave birth to a Down’s syndrome baby. There is no cover-up involved, here; Trig is her baby.

    She is energetic and hardworking. She regularly worked out at the gym.

    She is savvy. She doesn’t take positions; she just “puts things out there” and if they prove to be popular, then she takes credit.

    Her husband works a union job on the North Slope for BP and is a champion snowmobile racer. Todd Palin’s kind of job is highly sought-after because of the schedule and high pay. He arranges his work schedule so he can fish for salmon in Bristol Bay for a month or
    so in summer, but by no stretch of the imagination is fishing their major source of income. Nor has her life-style ever been anything like that of native Alaskans.

    Sarah and her whole family are avid hunters.

    She’s smart.

    Her experience is as mayor of a city with a population of about 5,000 (at the time), and less than 2 years as governor of a state with about 670,000 residents.

    During her mayoral administration most of the actual work of running this small city was turned over to an administrator. She had been pushed to hire this administrator by party power-brokers after she had
    gotten herself into some trouble over precipitous firings which had given rise to a recall campaign.

    Sarah campaigned in Wasilla as a “fiscal conservative”. During her 6 years as Mayor, she increased general government expenditures by over 33%. During those same 6 years the amount of taxes collected by the
    City increased by 38%. This was during a period of low inflation (1996-2002). She reduced progressive property taxes and increased a regressive sales tax which taxed even food. The tax cuts that she promoted benefited large corporate property owners way more than they
    benefited residents.

    The huge increases in tax revenues during her mayoral administration weren’t enough to fund everything on her wish list though, borrowed money was needed, too. She inherited a city with zero debt, but left it with indebtedness of over $22 million. What did Mayor Palin encourage the voters to borrow money for? Was it the infrastructure that she said she supported? The sewage treatment plant that the city lacked? or a new library? No. $1m for a park. $15m-plus for construction of a
    multi-use sports complex which she rushed through to build on a piece of property that the City didn’t even have clear title to, that was still in litigation 7 yrs later–to the delight of the lawyer involved! The sports complex itself is a nice addition to the community but a huge money pit, not the profit-generator she claimed it
    would be. She also supported bonds for $5.5m for road projects that could have been done in 5-7 yrs without any borrowing.

    While Mayor, City Hall was extensively remodeled and her office redecorated more than once.

    These are small numbers, but Wasilla is a very small city.

    As an oil producer, the high price of oil has created a budget surplus in Alaska. Rather than invest this surplus in technology that will make us energy independent and increase efficiency, as Governor she proposed distribution of this surplus to every individual in the state.

    In this time of record state revenues and budget surpluses, she recommended that the state borrow/bond for road projects, even while she proposed distribution of surplus state revenues: spend today’s surplus, borrow for needs.

    She’s not very tolerant of divergent opinions or open to outside ideas or compromise. As Mayor, she fought ideas that weren’t generated by her or her staff. Ideas weren’t evaluated on their merits, but on the basis of who proposed them.

    While Sarah was Mayor of Wasilla she tried to fire our highly respected City Librarian because the Librarian refused to consider removing from the library some books that Sarah wanted removed. City residents
    rallied to the defense of the City Librarian and against Palin’s attempt at out-and-out censorship, so Palin backed down and withdrew her termination letter. People who fought her attempt to oust the Librarian are on her enemies list to this day.

    Sarah complained about the “old boy’s club” when she first ran for Mayor, so what did she bring Wasilla? A new set of “old boys”. Palin fired most of the experienced staff she inherited. At the City and as Governor she hired or elevated new, inexperienced, obscure people, creating a staff totally dependent on her for their jobs and eternally grateful and fiercely loyal–loyal to the point of abusing their power to further her personal agenda, as she has acknowledged happened in the case of pressuring the State’s top cop (see below).

    As Mayor, Sarah fired Wasilla’s Police Chief because he “intimidated” her, she told the press. As Governor, her recent firing of Alaska’s top cop has the ring of familiarity about it. He served at her pleasure and she had every legal right to fire him, but it’s pretty clear that an important factor in her decision to fire him was because he wouldn’t fire her sister’s ex-husband, a State Trooper. Under investigation for abuse of power, she has had to admit that more than 2 dozen contacts were made between her staff and family to the person that she later fired, pressuring him to fire her ex-brother-in-law. She tried to replace the man she fired with a man who she knew had been reprimanded
    for sexual harassment; when this caused a public furor, she withdrew her support.

    She has bitten the hand of every person who extended theirs to her in help. The City Council person who personally escorted her around town introducing her to voters when she first ran for Wasilla City Council
    became one of her first targets when she was later elected Mayor. She abruptly fired her loyal City Administrator; even people who didn’t like the guy were stunned by this ruthlessness.

    Fear of retribution has kept all of these people from saying anything publicly about her.

    When then-Governor Murkowski was handing out political plums, Sarah got the best, Chair of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission: one of the few jobs not in Juneau and one of the best paid. She had no background in oil & gas issues. Within months of scoring this great job which paid $122,400/yr, she was complaining in the press about the high salary. I was told that she hated that job: the commute, the
    structured hours, the work. Sarah became aware that a member of this Commission (who was also the State Chair of the Republican Party) engaged in unethical behavior on the job. In a gutsy move which some
    undoubtedly cautioned her could be political suicide, Sarah solved all her problems in one fell swoop: got out of the job she hated and garnered gobs of media attention as the patron saint of ethics and as a gutsy fighter against the “old boys’ club” when she dramatically quit, exposing this man’s ethics violations (for which he was fined).

    As Mayor, she had her hand stuck out as far as anyone for pork from Senator Ted Stevens. Lately, she has castigated his pork-barrel politics and publicly humiliated him. She only opposed the “bridge to
    nowhere” after it became clear that it would be unwise not to.

    As Governor, she gave the Legislature no direction and budget guidelines, then made a big grandstand display of line-item vetoing projects, calling them pork. Public outcry and further legislative action restored most of these projects–which had been vetoed simply because she was not aware of their importance–but with the unobservant she had gained a reputation as “anti-pork”.

    She is solidly Republican: no political maverick. The State party leaders hate her because she has bit them in the back and humiliated them. Other members of the party object to her self-description as a fiscal conservative.

    Around Wasilla there are people who went to high school with Sarah. They call her “Sarah Barracuda” because of her unbridled ambition and predatory ruthlessness. Before she became so powerful, very ugly stories circulated around town about shenanigans she pulled to be made point guard on the high school basketball team. When Sarah’s mother-in-law, a highly respected member of the community and experienced manager, ran for Mayor, Sarah refused to endorse her.

    As Governor, she stepped outside of the box and put together of package of legislation known as “AGIA” that forced the oil companies to march to the beat of her drum.

    Like most Alaskans, she favors drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. She has questioned if the loss of sea ice is linked to global warming. She campaigned “as a private citizen” against a state initiaitive that would have either a) protected salmon streams from pollution from mines, or b) tied up in the courts all mining in the state (depending on who you listen to). She has pushed the State’s lawsuit against the Dept. of the Interior’s decision to list polar bears as threatened species.

    McCain is the oldest person to ever run for President; Sarah will be a heartbeat away from being President.

    There has to be literally millions of Americans who are more knowledgeable and experienced than she.

    However, there’s a lot of people who have underestimated her and are regretting it.

    CLAIM VS FACT

    *”PTA mom”: true years ago when her first-born was in elementary school, not since

    *”Pro-life”: mixed. Knowingly gave birth to a Down’s syndrome baby BUT declined to call a special legislative session on some pro-life legislation
    *”Experienced”: Some high schools have more students than Wasilla has residents. Many cities have more residents than the state of Alaska. No legislative experience other than City Council. Little hands-on
    supervisory or managerial experience; needed help of a city administrator to run town of about 5,000.

    *gutsy: absolutely!
    *open & transparent: ??? Good at keeping secrets. Not good at explaining actions.

    *pro-labor/pro-union. No. Just because her husband works union doesn’t make her pro-labor. I have seen nothing to support any claim that she is pro-labor/pro-union.

    WHY AM I WRITING THIS?

    First, I have long believed in the importance of being an informed voter. I am a voter registrar. For 10 years I put on student voting programs in the schools. If you google my name (Anne, last name redacted, Alaska), you will find references to my participation in local government, education, and PTA/parent organizations.

    Secondly, I’ve always operated in the belief that “Bad things happen when good people stay silent”. Few people know as much as I do because few have gone to as many City Council meetings.

    Third, I am just a housewife. I don’t have a job she can bump me out of. I don’t belong to any organization that she can hurt. But, I am no fool; she is immensely popular here, and it is likely that this will cost me somehow in the future: that’s life.

    Fourth, she has hated me since back in 1996, when I was one of the 100 or so people who rallied to support the City Librarian against Sarah’s attempt at censorship.

    Fifth, I looked around and realized that everybody else was afraid to say anything because they were somehow vulnerable.

    CAVEATS
    I am not a statistician. I developed the numbers for the increase in spending & taxation 2 years ago (when Palin was running for Governor) from information supplied to me by the Finance Director of the City of Wasilla, and I can’t recall exactly what I adjusted for: did I adjust for inflation? for population increases? Right now, it is impossible for a private person to get any info out of City Hall–they are swamped. So I can’t verify my numbers.

    You may have noticed that there are various numbers circulating for the population of Wasilla, ranging from my “about 5,000″, up to 9,000. The day Palin’s selection was announced a city official told me that the current population is about 7,000. The official 2000 census count was 5,460. I have used about 5,000 because Palin was Mayor from 1996 to 2002, and the city was growing rapidly in the mid-90′s.

  42. Levi Johnston (Scottsdale, AZ, United States Flag of United States) Says:

    Not to discredit my commenters – Really, I appreciate the feedback (good and bad). The above post by “The Truth” is exactly something you shouldn’t believe right off the bat. I know this is ‘supposed’ to be a Palin-bashing site, but here’s the problem I have with the above post. It has absolutely no references. Do your research! If you see something surprising that you didn’t know, research it.

    (Example in above post):
    “While Sarah was Mayor of Wasilla she tried to fire our highly respected City Librarian because the Librarian refused to consider removing from the library some books that Sarah wanted removed. City residents
    rallied to the defense of the City Librarian and against Palin’s attempt at out-and-out censorship”

    RESEARCH IT!
    A quick google search brought me to a fairly unbiased site (time.com):
    http://www.time.com/time/politics/article/0,8599,1837918,00.html?imw=Y
    Where it says:
    “Stein says that as mayor, Palin continued to inject religious beliefs into her policy at times. ‘She asked the library how she could go about banning books,’ he says, because some voters thought they had inappropriate language in them.”

    In “The Truth”‘s statement, it appeared none of the residents wanted the book banned; however, it looks like Palin was actually trying to do it for certain resident voters to win their vote. Yes, it is still reprehensible, but it is no longer as outlandish of a statement as “Palin, the dictator, wanted to burn the library books” which is what the original statement sounded like.

    Look at every statement. Each statement from the extreme left, or the extreme right is meant to sway your opinion. It may not be an out and out lie, but the words they choose either make something appear completely outlandish, or more normal than what really happened. Mind you, it’s not just random comments on the internet. There are biased news stations too! I could go into detail, but I will not. If you can, try to find multiple sources for one fact. See if different news sources make it sound worse/better. I find one of the best source for information is international news sites, especially the BBC. Supposedly the BBC’s funding doesn’t waver no matter what they write, so they are supposed to be 100% biased free, but anybody can be bought. Just watch yourself on the internet, and happy surfing.

    if you can explain to me why you did this

    email me if you can.

  45. brodart (Brooklyn, NY, United States Flag of United States) Says:

    Levi –

    I actually think the real story surrounding the book banning is worse than the one posted by the Truth. So, she tried to ban books to please a few voters? So not only does she approve of book-banning, but she also panders to extreme conservatives AND she has no spine. Great.

  46. Levi Johnston (Scottsdale, AZ, United States Flag of United States) Says:

    Here we go again with the carefully chosen words and verbs to convey feelings amongst the readers. We don’t even know if she used the word banning. This is a quote from an individual who generalized the action. We don’t know if she just requested it be removed, and not ‘banned’ forever.

    Also, is having a dictator making crazy choices on their own volition really better than having an individual who makes a choice based on at least a few other people? Considering Alaska has voted Democrat for president only once during their entire history as a state, shouldn’t we figure most of the people are more conservative than we might think?

    Last night, at the Republican National Convention, just before John McSame spoke, this “9/11 Exploitation” video played.

    Why would they show that graphic 9/11 footage? feat tactics? Exploitation? Naked manipulation? It is indefensible! That sh1t is like porn for republicans… I also like MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann’s reaction and apology to America for the Republicans shamelessness. I like how it doesn’t show bush one time… you know sitting in that classroom.

    Here is McSame singing (for real!) about just how much he loves war!

    Very, very cool, Levi. What an awesome retard trap. Easily the funniest thing I’ve read in weeks. I think my favorite part is the list of sites that reference yours, as if your little web page was important somehow. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that so many of your visitors were unable to read the large red disclaimers. Hopefully, they’ll be similarly confused by the directions to their polling places and thus eliminate themselves from the vote pool. Evolution, of a sort, in action…

    Wow.

    This is the funniest thing… I really had NO clue who Levi Johnston was, either of you, until I saw a rerun of Two and a Half Men and read the vanity card by Chuck Lorre. I honestly have no interest in gossip “news” like the goings on of two teenagers who just happen to be connected to a candidate. I wasn’t trying to find info on this kid who apparently is/was in an tough position, I was just curious if the vanity card was for real and if this “Levi Johnston” had accepted the money or if it was some sort of an inside joke that Chuck Lorre was pulling. I find him to be a good comedy writer, and I was really curious about the story behind the vanity card. Turns out, I am just that disconnected from the bullshit election and all the bullshit “news” around it. The entire election system is the true joke anyway. The voters do not really matter, and I believe, on some level, they know it, which is why they allow themselves to be swayed by the ridiculous propaganda of both sides (and even independent… I mean, there are so many people that can see the obvious bullshit that is spewed from both parties, so they support ANY independent candidate).

    Anyway, I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I googled the Chuck Lorre vanity card, but I congratulate you on your success of this interesting turn of events. I say success because obviously you have done something interesting and thought/comment provoking. I also thoroughly agree with your opinions on the way people should/should not think while deciding how to vote. It should not matter how you or I or my church leader or my college professor or, god forbid, the “News” think and vote, the only opinions that should sway the voter are those of that voter. The true tragedy is that our society would rather chose between one of two out-dated parties and gobble up their bullshit then to put in the work to actually research ALL the people who would be so bold as to claim to be competent enough to lead this great country! And that such people make it so difficult to find reliable information about their RELEVANT experience and qualification.

    Quite frankly, I think this website is a huge waste of time. It’s not funny and anyone in their right mind would not believe that for one second it could be real. I’m not sure what is so hilarious about Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston’s situation. The fake blogs you wrote were not witty but simply cruel. You may not know much or even care about what the other Levi is dealing with but having a child at such a young age, especially when the woman having it is connected to someone of political power, is difficult and you need not mock it. I really hope no one gave you a job for the poorly done work they saw on this website.
