Levi Johnston is certainly not passing up opportunities to cash in on Sarah Palin's fame by speaking about the Alaska governor every chance he gets.
This at least makes sense from the standpoint of him wanting to be in the news. Why she actually plays along by continuing the feud is another story.
Addressing her impending resignation as Governor of Alaska on the Today Show this morning, Levi Johnston said Sarah Palin quit to get rich, basically.
Living with the Palin family, "she was always talkin' about how [being governor] is a very stressful job," Johnston said. "After the campaign and things, we had tons of offers ... from everybody out there; just all kinds of ridiculous things."
Johnston, who knocked up Sarah's daughter Bristol Palin, said he believes Sarah earned more than the $7 million that's been reported for her Harper Collins book deal: "I've heard anything from $7 to $9 million. It's up there."
Other observations from Levi Johnston:
- Fame "definitely got to her head."
- He is weighing many career opportunities.
- Sarah Palin is not being up front about why she resigned, and "there are times when she's not up front with everybody."
- America "for the most part" has the right impression of Palin.
- He would not vote for Sarah for president after her "quitting on Alaska."
- He's not gonna let anyone intimidate him.
Levi says relations with the Palins were icy for awhile, but are now much better, and "everything's fine." At least that was true until this morning.
