Embattled Miss California Carrie Prejean certainly has her share of critics, but rest assured, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is firmly in her camp.

The 2008 GOP Vice Presidential nominee released a statement last night slamming "the liberal onslaught of malicious attacks" against Prejean, who first ignited controversy for coming out against same-sex marriage at last month's Miss USA pageant.

"I can relate, as a liberal target myself," Sarah Palin said.

"What I find so remarkable is that these politically-motivated attacks fail to show that what Carrie and I believe is also what President Obama and Secretary Clinton believe - marriage is between a man and a woman."

"I applaud Donald Trump for standing with Carrie during this time. And I respect Carrie for standing strong and staying true to herself, and not letting those who disagree with her deny her protection under the nation's First Amendment Rights."

DUMB AND DUMBER: Carrie Prejean has a new, high-profile political backer.

"Our Constitution protects us all - not just those who agree with the far left," the mother of Bristol Palin went on.

Amazingly, the governor of a U.S. state apparently does not realize that:

  • She was only a "liberal target" because she was running for Vice President of the United States, and representing the other party.
  • The First Amendment has nothing to do with being criticized for speaking one's mind; it simply protects one from being imprisoned for it.
  • Prejean nearly lost her crown not for her gay marriage stance, but for violating the terms of her contract with a private organization.
  • Prejean did not lose her crown! Rather, she received national acclaim, even becoming a hero to the National Marriage ... whatever it is.

Last week, Prejean's father, Will, told E! Online that Palin personally called him to voice support for his daughter, but didn't reveal any more details.

On Tuesday, Trump announced at a news conference that Prejean will keep her crown despite the release of semi-nude and topless photos that she blamed on the wind ... or Satan ... or liberals, or ... whatever, who the hell cares.

Miss California pageant director Shanna Moakler resigned her position a day later, saying she "no longer believes" in the Miss Universe organization. When Shanna Moakler is your new moral compass, you've got issues, Miss Universe.

On the campaign trail, Sarah Palin chided Barack Obama for writing two books about his relatively young life while not passing any worthwhile legislation.

Now the former Republican V.P. candidate is ready to follow suit!

Palin will publish a memoir with HarperCollins that will come out in Spring 2010 - the same time she becomes eligible for reelection as Alaska's governor.

The Alaska governor's book, as yet untitled, will cover her many career accomplishments some of the controversies surrounding herself and her family.

The memoir will span her Alaskan childhood through last year's campaign and beyond, and will likely cover her political beliefs and family life.

The pregnancy of her teen daughter Bristol Palin, who gave birth in December, will surely be included. Whether or not Levi Johnston tapped that while Sarah slept in the next room will probably remain shrouded in mystery, however.

"In fairness to my family, this is going be a good opportunity for me to cash in on them, too, because there have been so many misperceptions out there about who we are and what we believe in," Palin said in a statement. 

Other possible topics that Palin's ghostwriter of choice might cover:

  • Emotional family bonding sessions on the front porch, while sipping on wolf blood and enjoying the view of Russia
  • Her incredible wedding night sex with Todd Palin, after they waited to do it until they were married, of course
  • Patented techniques for different kinds of winks
  • The Palin-Carrie Prejean ticket strategies for 2012

Carrie Prejean's father, Will, believes his daughter will not be stripped of her title as Miss California in wake of the growing scandal surrounding the semi-nude and topless photos she posed for during her teenage years.

Will Prejean told Radar Online that he was "extremely excited" about a news conference being held Tuesday by Donald Trump, owner of Miss USA.

Sarah Palin Shaking Hands

If he does know something about what Trump will say, he would not reveal what it is, only that it was "confidential" and would be announced in due time.

The father of the embattled, unintelligent beauty queen also said he has not seen the Carrie Prejean nude shots, and "does not care" if they exist.

Regarding the other criticism directed at Carrie - for her adamant stance against gay marriage, Will Prejean said his children were brought up to believe that marriage is between a man and a woman, and accused the other side of intolerance.

In a separate interview with E! News, Carrie's father noted that none other than Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has been personally in touch with his lightning-rod spawn: "She called her directly to offer support," he said.

Carrie Prejean has the support of Sarah Palin ... and of gays and lesbians, according to her father, Will. No word on what rock Will is currently residing under.

While he did not reveal the exact words of wisdom Palin offered, he clarified that the call came prior to Carrie lying about the racy photos that surfaced.

In addition to Sarah Palin, the proud father also claims that Carrie Prejean had been receiving well-wishes from an even more unbelievable source.

"The gay and lesbian community has been supportive of Carrie," he lied said, despite every shred of evidence to the contrary. "It's been overwhelming."

"Everyone has been coming up to Carrie and saying, 'We may not agree with you, but we respect you for what you say.' And they're very emphatic."

The elder Prejean also spoke out about explosive reports involving his nasty divorce with Carrie's mother and claims that he said Carrie's stepdad was gay because he had a mustache. Will denies this and says his family is very close.

He also addressed rumors that his ex-wife is now seeing a woman. Asked about this, Will, in a strange response said: "No... but she loves to play bingo." There you have it, folks. Consider that issue cleared up.

Should Carrie Prejean lose her crown?

Sarah Palin might be able to see Russia from her house.

But can she also see what her ongoing family drama is doing to her political future?

Levi is the Man

Palin's father, Chuck Heath, is the latest to get involved in the back-and-forth between Palin's camp and Levi Johnston. Heath said his granddaughter's baby daddy "has not contributed anything" to Tripp, who was born last December.

A sign of things to come? Bristol was already holding babies away from Levi at the Republication National Convention.

Johnston, of course, has been making the media rounds.

First, he appeared on The Tyra Banks Show and claimed that the Alaska Governor likely knew he was banging Bristol; then, he went on The Early Show and said the Palin family won't let him be alone with his son.

"I don't agree with what he's doing right now," Heath told Us Weekly of Johnston's press tour. "It's not right. He's broke, so he's trying to capitalize on this. I wish he’d take some of this money he’s making and buy some diapers with it."

This would all be a typical, Hollywood family feud... if it didn't prominently involved someone that was A VICE PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE SIX MONTHS AGO AND WHO IS CONSIDERED THE REPUBLICAN FRONT-RUNNER FOR THE 2012 PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION!!!

As such, it's downright hilarious, and sort of depressing for the country.

Just days after talking on the Tyra Banks Show about boning Bristol Palin in Sarah Palin's house, Levi Johnston ran his mouth some more on CBS' The Early Show about his many difficulties with the family of the former V.P. candidate.

One point of contention: Whether Johnston ever lived at Palin's home.

"They said I didn't live there," the ex-fiance of Bristol Palin and father of her son Tripp said. "[They say] I 'stayed' there. I was like, 'Okay, whatever you want to call it' – all my stuff was there. If you wanna call it staying there, that's fine."

"So, they're lying," said reporter Maggie Rodriguez.

"Yeah," Levi Johnston replied.

After Palin, the Governor of Alaska, lost the election and Levi and Bristol broke up, he says there was tension during his visits to see 3-month-old Tripp.

"I can go over there whenever I want and see my baby," says Johnston, 18. "But I'm not allowed to take him, and it's not as comfortable going over there anymore with that family sitting down on the couch. It's awkward. I don't know."

"They just, like, they don't think of me the same way anymore."

"I don't wanna go there every day and sit there when her family's there and try and play with my baby. I want to be able to take him and do our own thing with my family."

Levi wasn't the only Johnston to defend his story. His mom, Sherry (who is facing felony drug-dealing charges) and sister Mercede also weighed in.

"Look what they're doing," said Mercede in defense of Levi. "They are lying, trying to save themselves when they asked for it. They brought him to the campaign. They should have known what was coming. They can't try and take it back now."

As for why Levi Johnston is speaking out now, he explained, "We're not trying to cash in on their name, you know ... I'm just trying to get my side of the story out there. Letting people know who I am. Not what the magazines say I am."

The biggest misconception? "Probably that my family's white trash," he said. Or is that a misconception? Click to enlarge pics of Levi (and Mercede) below:

While Barack and Michelle Obama are meeting heads of state, giving rousing speeches and winning raves for their representation of America (and fashion) in Europe, Sarah Palin is dealing with important diplomatic matters of her own.

Specifically, the Alaska Governor is lashing out against Levi Johnston for blabbing on TV about having sex with Bristol, her 18-year-old daughter.

After taking about having sex with Bristol Palin - and implying Sarah Palin knew he was doing so - on The Tyra Banks Show, Levi, 19, the father of Bristol's baby – was slapped with a blistering response from Sarah and Bristol.

The Palin family rep said in a statement:

"Bristol did not even know Levi was going on the show. We are very disappointed that Levi and his family, in a quest for fame, attention, and fortune, are engaging in flat-out lies, gross exaggeration, and even distortion of their relationship."

"Bristol's focus remains on raising Tripp, completing her education, and advocating abstinence. It is unfortunate that Levi finds it more appealing to exploit his previous relationship with Bristol than to contribute to the well being of the child."

Damn, you pretty much got served there, Levi.

The statement ends, saying, "Bristol realizes now that she made a mistake in her relationship and is the one taking responsibility for their actions." Owned again!

On the show, which airs Monday, April 6, Johnston tells Tyra Banks that he believes Sarah Palin knew he and Bristol were having sex when they lived under her roof.

The couple, who were high school sweethearts, were forced to claim that they planned to wed after graduation – but ended up splitting earlier this year.

In other Palin family news, the half sister of Sarah's husband Todd Palin was accused of breaking into the same Wasilla, Alaska, house twice to steal money.

Diana Palin, 35, was charged with felony burglary and misdemeanor criminal trespass and theft stemming from two break-ins. Solid week all around.

In a new interview, Todd Palin says the $150,000 spent on clothes and beauty services for his wife, Alaska Governor and vanquished Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin during the 2008 campaign was "out of our control."

"She never went to Saks, any of that stuff," he says in Men's Journal. "You come into a campaign late, you put all your trust into the team, you got people who are working on VP ops for a long time, and we're just focused on debate prep."

Mugler Shot

"I couldn't give a rat's [expletive] about clothes," Todd Palin continues. "Please. I mean these are my Sunday go-to-meeting jeans!"

Sarah and John McCain came under fire after it was revealed thousands of dollars were spent to dress her family - $75,062 at Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis, $49,425 at Saks Fifth Avenue and $4,902 at upscale men's store Atelier, etc.

The lavish shopping sprees contradicted Sarah's image as an average "hockey mom" - and even paled in comparison to relatively affordable Michelle Obama fashion.

Sarah Palin has said neither wanted nor asked for the clothes.

Todd says the Alaskan governor - who was routinely mocked on SNL while running for VP - was a seasoned politician before joining John McCain's ticket.

"You got to remember, it's not like they just plucked us off the fishing boat with scales still under our nails, you know?" says the father of Bristol Palin.

On a lighter note, during the campaign, Todd Palin, a champion snowmobile racer, had a blast chilling with his temporary Secret Service protection.

"They liked cruising around with me," he says, "we went to the Arctic Cat snowmachine factory and then drove up to North Dakota, went to a Penn State-Michigan football game, went to a NASCAR race. Rough duty, hanging out with me."

It is time to stop Sarah Palin. - Ashley Judd

No, Ashley Judd isn't a few months late, or a few years early, in the battle against Sarah Palin securing an office in the White House.

Instead, the actress is narrating a video that calls out the former Vice Presidential nominee for promoting the shooting of wolves.

The video below was filmed on behalf of Washington-based Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund. It blasts Palin for supporting an expanded program for the aerial shooting of wolves. Moreover, Judd claims that Palin has offered a $150 bounty for the foreleg of each dead wolf collected.

Alaska Governor and former Republican V.P. candidate Sarah Palin welcomed her first grandchild this week, but admitted that she felt both fear and despair when she first learned that her teenage daughter Bristol was expecting.

"We are over the moon with the arrival of this healthy, beautiful baby," Sarah Palin said in a statement dated December 31 and posted Friday. "The road ahead for this young couple will not be easy, but nothing worthwhile is ever easy."

Brad, Angelina and Six Kids!

Baby Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston was born to Bristol Palin and her boyfriend Levi Johnston on December 27. Both Bristol and Levi are 18 years old.

Bristol Palin's pregnancy was revealed shortly after her mother was named as John McCain's running mate in August, and became a campaign talking point.

Sarah Palin, a devout and pro-life Christian, always put a positive spin on her daughter's pregnancy, but in the statement issued this week, admitted to feeling afraid after learning she was to become a grandmother this year.

"When Bristol and [Levi Johnston] first told us the shocking news that she was pregnant, to be honest, we all at first looked at the situation with some fear and a bit of despair," Palin said. "But isn't it just like God to turn those circumstances into such an amazing, joyful blessing when you ask Him to help you through?"

In the same statement, Bristol Palin said becoming a teen mother was "not ideal" and spoke out against teen pregnancy.

"Teenagers need to prevent pregnancy to begin with - this isn't ideal," she said before thanking her "supportive family which is dealing with this together."

Bristol Palin will return to high school next week to earn the final credit that she needs to graduate, according to the statement. It was unclear if she intended to pursue any higher education upon completing high school.

Levi Johnston will finish high school as he works as an electrician apprentice. His mom, Sherry Johnston, was recently arrested on felony drug charges.

Sarah Palin Quotes

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.

Sarah Palin

I am thankful to be married to a man who loves being a dad as much as I love being a mom so he is my strength. And practically speaking, we have a great network of help with lots of grandparents and aunties and uncles all around us. We have a lot of help.
