Levi Johnston, former fiance and baby-daddy of Bristol Palin, keeps doing interviews. I’m at a loss for Levi’s logic, wondering what the hell he’s trying to accomplish. After doing interviews with Tyra Banks and the CBS Early Show, this time Levi took his story to Larry King Live. Larry, in his patented toadish way, asked Levi graphic sex questions. I never thought I’d say this, but I miss Tyra Banks’ journalistic ways.
Levi tried not to answer many of the graphic questions, claiming “I’m a gentleman, you know. And I don’t, you know, kiss and tell.” Except for all of those times that he did, you know.
Having sex is one thing, talking about it in a public forum is quite another.
Asked by CNN’s Larry King on Thursday night, “Where did sex occur in their house?,” Johnston, the former fiance of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol – and a Palin household resident while he and Bristol were together – answered, “You know, Larry, that I’m a gentleman, you know. And I don’t, you know, kiss and tell. So, you know, I don’t think that really – that really matters.”
So, if he won’t disclose where, how about how?
“First you said you practiced safe sex most of the time, right?” King asked the 18-year-old, who replied, “Right.”
“Most of the time,” reiterated King.
“Most of the time,” said Johnston.
In light of Bristol Palin’s widely covered pregnancy and delivery, King noted, “We know that one time that didn’t happen … Were you surprised at the pregnancy?”
“A little bit, yes. It came as a bit of a shock,” said Johnston – who, in fact, is not a total stranger to discussing his sex life on television.

There is no new news here, but I still find it interesting. Some pundits on cable news have claimed that Levi is actually some kind of evil genius with a political agenda. Or that Levi is just a young father who was treated poorly by the Palin family, who wants to see more of his son, and he has an ax to grind. In any case, I really wonder if Levi has thought this one through. If he keeps it up, Gov. Palin is just going to shoot him.
