Sarah Continues Family Feud Instead of Saying "No Comment"

 

 

 A spokeswoman for Gov. Sarah Palin is scoffing at comments by Bristol Palin's former fiancé, who says he thinks Palin resigned to cash in on her fame.

"It is interesting to learn Levi is working on a piece of fiction while honing his acting skills," Palin family spokeswoman Meghan Stapleton said in an e-mail to The Associated Press.

 

 

I just don't understand all this public squabbling Sarah is having with Levi Johnston.

Sarah should have no comment or say something like, "I wish Levi well, after all he is the father of my grandson." Instead, she takes the low road and has her spokeswoman take cheap shots at Levi. I wonder if Sarah Palin will continue the snide comments towards Levi when her grandson is old enough to understand her words.

 


 

"In a recent study, the United States was ranked the 114th happiest country in the world. Then Sarah Palin stepped down. Now we're at 17." --Conan O'Brien
