Sarah Palin on Oprah: Levi Johnston is Loved, Always Part of the Family

by at . Comments

Oprah Winfrey has former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin in the hot seat on Monday, and those hoping for a repeat of Carrie Prejean on Larry King will be disappointed. 

She's still talking about her teenage nemesis, her grandson's father, Levi Johnston, but unlike other recent interviews, Palin refused to get combative this time.

According to excerpts released today, Palin is asked if Johnston will be invited to their Thanksgiving dinner. "You know, that's a great question," Palin replies.

"It's lovely to think that he would ever even consider such a thing. Because, of course, you want - he is a part of the family and you want to bring him back into the fold and kind of under your wing. And he needs that, too, Oprah."

"I think [Levi Johnston] needs to know that he is always loved and that he has the most beautiful child and this can all work out for the best. It really can."

Sarah Palin ran for V.P. in 2008, but entertained even more in 2009.

Of Johnston's claims that she called her own baby retarded, Palin wisely says: "We don't have to keep going down this road of controversy all the time. We're not really into the drama. We have more important things to concentrate on."

Palin also did not seem enthusiastic about rehashing her notoriously awkward interview with Katie Couric during her bid for the Vice Presidency last fall.

She tells Winfrey she didn't think the sit-down wasn't a seminal, defining moment for her. "And neither did the campaign," she added. "The campaign said, 'This is what America needs to see and it was a good interview.'"

"And, of course, I'm thinking, 'If you thought that was a good interview, I don't know what a bad interview is,' because I knew it was a bad interview."

Fortunately, Oprah didn't ask about Levi's upcoming nude Playgirl spread. Now that would have really been a bad interview ... albeit entertaining.

Be afraid liberals - be very afraid. It's obvious that you are by your incessant attacks. We have a minority mentality in the WH who is failing miserably in addition to putting this country at risk from both abroad and at home. Of course, it's always someone else's fault. Sound familiar?
