Gotcha Journalism is Back
Hey! Did y’all hear that Bristol Palin — Sarah Palin’s knocked-up daughter— is expected to have her child on Saturday? Looks like Grandma Johnston — the father’s mother — may not be able to make it.
A 42-year-old Wasilla woman was arrested Thursday at her home by Alaska State Troopers with a search warrant in an undercover drug investigation. Sherry L. Johnston was charged with six felony counts of misconduct involving a controlled substance.
Johnston is the mother of Levi Johnston, the Wasilla 18-year-old who received international attention in September when Gov. Sarah Palin and her husband, Todd, announced their teenage daughter was pregnant and he was the father. Bristol Palin, 18, is due on Saturday, according to a recent interview with the governor’s father, Chuck Heath.
Troopers served the warrant at Johnston’s home at the “conclusion of an undercover narcotics investigation,” said a statement issued Thursday by the troopers as part of the normal daily summary of activity around the state.
That’s conservative values, for you, eh?
I’d say more — maybe take a potshot at Palin’s “known associates,” but really, why rub it in? Sarah Palin — God Bless her poor ignorant soul — is gonna be stuck with Levi Johnston as a son-in-law and his family as a part of her life for decades. I feel kind of sorry for her, though I’m happy as hell that all of this drama won’t have any part in the President-elect’s transition, as it would’ve had the election gone the other way.
