Colleen O'Connor, political columnist for the San Diego News Network, thinks is nominating Sarah Palin for Mother of the Year - not for taking care of a special needs child - not for having a son in Iraq - not for caring for a her teenage daughter and her baby - BUT for putting up with Levi Johnston!
What is absolutely true, is that Johnston’s lack of discretion (let alone chivalry) has given even liberal media columnists reason to pause, and reassess, their dislike of Sarah Palin.
As New York Times columnist, Gail Collins, writes, “For the first time in my life, I feel sympathy for Sarah Palin.”
After reading the Vanity Fair piece, Ruth Marcus of the Washington Post calls Levi, “an opportunistic creep.”
These columnists are not referring to his desire to pose for Playgirl magazine, or his desire to “go out and do a movie, maybe even be a celebrity.”
Their revulsion for Johnston’s behavior stems from his non stop whines about the Palin’s domestic life. A life he would not have been privy to had his potential in-laws not welcomed him into their home.
Levi, whose own unpleasant past should have made him a better, more compassionate man, continues to behave like an irresponsible adolescent — with little understanding that grown-up behavior starts in youth — not middle age.
Colleen O'Connor ends her article with this:
A new twist for Sarah? Putting up with a cad like Johnston just might make her “Mother of the Year.”
One thing is certain. More to come.
