Sarah Palin

Levi Johnston is a LIAR --

We've NEVER Hidden Tripp

Mama Grizzly is clawing back at Levi Johnston ... claiming Bristol Palin's baby daddy straight up LIED when he claimed her family has been actively trying to block Levi from seeing his son, Tripp.

Sarah and Todd Palin have issued a statement to TMZ ... saying, "We have never hidden Tripp from Levi or discouraged Levi from spending time with him. Any suggestion that we have is false and contrary to our core beliefs."

The Palins add, "The last time either of us recall a conversation with Levi was in the summer of 2010 when Levi sat down at our house with us and personally apologized about lies he told to the media about our family. Neither of us have talked to him since that day."

The Palins are referring to the statements Levi made on "TMZ Live" this week ... when he accused the entire Palin clan of hatching a diabolical plan to keep him away from Tripp ... and said Sarah is the one pulling the strings.

But the Palins say Levi is full of moose droppings ... telling us, "We are disappointed that he continues to tell falsehoods about us to garner media attention. We encourage Levi and all non-custodial fathers to be fully engaged and to positively and fully participate in their children's lives. This includes not making misstatements about his child's grandparents."

Sounds like Sarah Palin is still in junior high--wants to get attention and belongs to the Club of the Mean Girls. What does she not understand about bullying? Looks like she thinks people with money or class get to air their dirty laundry in public and that will make her more popular. Her 15 minutes of fame are up and we all know that the only reason that Levi apologized was because the Palins told him he had to apologize before marrying Bristol. He apologized but didn;t realize that this was all about manipulation and his words would be used against him. Sarah Palin always wants to be the center of attention and she will knife you in the back every chance she thinks it will get her one step up the social climbing ladder.

Check out the newer story about Levi's being in major arrears for child support...I'm sure those two bitches prevent him from paying that, too!

On the contrary, he hasn't been pursued for it...yet.

Believe him at your own peril, fools!

Anybody ever notice that $arah Palin always refers to Trig as "my son", but when recounting the story of his birth (usually in front of a fawning crowd, usually for an exorbitant amount of money...) - she has never, EVER said "I gave birth...?" She always says "Of course I'm his mom!" That may be true now - but that's not the same thing, $arah.

I've read Johnston's book, "Deer in the Headlights", it's a good book actually. He comes across as non-arrogant and willing to making some bad choices or being stupid enough to be fooled. Unlike the Palins, who NEVER admit to doing anything wrong. Johnston's description of how the Palin family operates in private, vs how it's crafted to appear on the outside, are entirely, psychologically believable and consistent with people who are self-absorbed. I don't think he is lying about this. I think the Palins, both Bristol and Sarah, have used Tripp for the publicity mileage he provides, are only secondarily interested in his actual welfare, and not at all in his relationship with his father. Calling someone a liar doesn't mean they actually are. It can also be a deflection tactic. I propose people look at the larger pattern of behaviour in both parties and ask which set is internally consistent and human.

What Palin doesn't get is that Levi Johnston is more irrelevant than she is.

Who cares if he can see his son Tripp or not ! And apparently he's going on to make new "Tripps" that he will have to pay for, for the rest of his life ! Talking about a malfunctioned family, the Palins and Johnston are only trying to capitalize on almost (monthly stories) about one thing or another ! But enough already guys... Just go on and live whatever life you want to have, without asking the rest of country to take care of your brew,.....
Palins or not, why do we keep having to hear about them !
