Wasilla Update

There's a new Palin, born three months after Track's marriage, in Palin tradition (McGinniss scooped). Paternal grandma is uncharacteristically silent. And Mercede Johnston upgrades her reputation with a September center-fold in Playboy. Maybe that's her way of trying to stop the grandmother of her nephew announcing a run for the presidency. Good luck with that. Also:

According to Mercede, Bristol Palin sent a text message to Levi during her pregnancy that read, "Ever since the moment I found out I was pregnant, I prayed to God you weren't the father." She added that her brother did not like Bristol to drink, as it made her "more promiscuous."

Levi's book comes out in September too. I'm sure you can't wait.
