Palin vs Johnston, Ctd

This is getting more and more interesting. Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin took time today to lash out at the father of her grandson, Tripp. By lash out, I mean using the words "malicious", "mean-spirited" and "selling his body for money." Kinda sensitive, isn't she? I wonder why. If Levi has nothing, wouldn't it best to ignore him? This, by the way, is his version of malicious:

"There are some things that I have that are huge. And I haven't said them because I'm not gonna hurt her that way. I have things that can, you know -- that would get her in trouble, and could hurt her. Will hurt her. But I'm not gonna go that far. You know, I mean, if I really wanted to hurt her, I could, very easily. But there's -- I'm not gonna do it. I'm not going that far."

At this point, it seems to me that Levi has nothing to lose and a lot to gain by telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Next month would be a great opportunity, as Palin's latest vehicle is wheeled out by the marketing company, Harper Collins. If she can make millions off lies and spin, why should he not make some cash by telling the truth and exposing the fraud?
