Former Alaska Governor and alleged presidential hopeful Sarah Palin and her family are the subjects of a profile in the September issue of Playboy.

That issue will, naturally, feature a Mercede Johnston nude spread as well.

Right next to the profile, in fact. Nothing says positive media coverage like your face alongside the nude sister of your grandson’s baby daddy.

Sarah Palin Outside

Mercede and Sarah: The good old days.

The Palins did not participate in the piece, obviously, but the magazine sent a writer to Alaska to interview locals and friends for their expose.

Playboy sources say Mercede Johnston, 18, is outspoken in the article about Palin and Bristol, who her brother Levi got pregnant back in ’08.

Sources say Johnston was paid less than $25,000 to strip down for the magazine, but excess humiliation of the Palins is likely priceless to her.
