Levi Johnston has fallen off the radar a bit lately.
Not that we're up in arms about it, just observing. In any event, it looks like his sister, Mercede Johnston, is picking up the Sarah Palin-bashing slack.
In an interview with Playboy, which will feature Mercede Johnston nude next month, choice comments about Levi's almost in-laws are abundant
Asked what kind of president Sarah Palin would be, she responded: "I think she'd have had a mental breakdown ... As governor she quit on us." Burn.
"What does that say about her?" Mercede asked, noting that a majority of residents of Wasilla, Alaska "can't stand Palin ... I would say 70 percent."
Mercede claims the Palins are so polarizing in the town - where Sarah was once mayor, and where Levi is running for mayor - that she can't work.
"It's hard to get a job because of the Palins ... People say, 'Oh, Mercede Johnston, I don't know if people are going to come in if she works here.'"
Regarding Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston, Mercede claims Bristol sent a brutal text to her boyfriend after she found out she was pregnant ..."Ever since the moment I found out I was pregnant," said Bristol, who has claimed Levi stole her virginity, "I prayed to God you weren't the father."
Wait, there was some doubt Levi was the father?!
Mercede says that "Levi never liked [Bristol Palin] to drink since it just made her more promiscuous" and that the pregnancy "wasn't an accident."
"She and Levi planned it. They were trying to conceive for months."
Mercede also tells Playboy that Track Palin, Sarah's 22-year-old son and oldest of her five children, who is an Army reservist, used drugs. Like a lot.
"He did OxyContin, mostly cocaine. He didn't choose to go into the Army; he went there because his mom made him, so when she was at the convention they wouldn't know he does drugs and would think he was a patriot."
There you have it. A Palin family rep declined comment. Shocking.
