Sarah Palin: Bristol & Levi Workin' Hard!

by at . Comments

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin hasn't yet said anything publicly about her four-day-old grandson, Tripp Johnston, but she does want people to know that Tripp's parents – Palin's daughter Bristol and her fiancé Levi Johnston - are hard at work.

"You need to know that both Levi and Bristol are working their butts off to parent and going to school and working at the same time," Palin told People in a phone message Wednesday. "They are certainly not high school dropouts."

The former GOP V.P. candidate said she wanted to be clear about their continuing work toward high school degrees because suggesting otherwise "harms Bristol's reputation and Levi's reputation and their chances for good work opportunities."

Sarah and Todd Palin became proud grandparents when their oldest daughter Bristol Palin gave birth to her first child, Tripp, with Levi Johnston.

Bristol Palin, 18, who gave birth Saturday, is intending to finish her high school degree through correspondence courses. Levi, also 18, has said that he left high school to enroll in an apprenticeship program training him as an electrician.

Sarah Palin said at the time that she hoped Levi would eventually earn his GED, adding that "I respect that Levi is out there working hard."

We recommend that Levi follow the same career path as his mother, Sherry Johnston. Prescription drug dealing is a pretty recession-proof field.

Yeah, because upperclass white kids really need affirmative action. Spare us all Rhonda, Palin's family is a hilarious reflection of this country and the reality of "who" you know is more important than "what" you know. I will be curious to find out what happens to these 2 DROPOUTS in about 5 years.

In Alaska, a high school diploma or GED is required to enroll in an electrical apprentice program. How then did Levi Johnston --- who Palin reminds us has yet to either graduate or have a GED --- get accepted for his apprenticeship? The MSM is just starting to pick up this story. When it does, Palin is sure to cry foul as 'gotcha journalism,' despite this latest debacle being of her own making.

Turns out you can't enroll in an apprentice program with a HS diploma or GED. How did Levi get in the program? http://www.thealaskastandard.c...

Guess what, Palin? WHEN you drop out of high school like your first son, your first daughter and your first son in law DID (as in, have already DONE), you BECOME A DROP OUT. Yes, when OUR childen drop out of high school they ARE drop outs, YOURS are too.FOREVER. THEY CAN MAKE IT UP WITH HIGH SCHOOL EQUIVILANCY, but they still dropped out. Stop trying to redefine words, it´s not your forte!
