Not so long ago, the Palinites were rallying round Levi Johnston when questions were raised about how he got a job. An ADN columnist reflects on what happens if you cross the governor:
Sarah Palin released a statement to the nation accusing the father of her grandbaby of not caring about the well-being of his child. How will Tripp feel the day he learns his grandmother publicly attacked his father? This is family, for goodness' sake. What won't Palin do to anyone getting in the way of her political ambition? If the 18-year old father of her grandchild isn't off-limits, nobody is.
The governor ends her attack on Levi by saying, "Bristol realizes now that she made a mistake in her relationship and is the one taking responsibility for their actions."
There you go, Tripp. Your grandmother wants the world to know your mother considers your father a big mistake. Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!
