Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin Are Getting Married! And Sarah Palin Has No Idea That It's Happening!
You know the old story: Boy meets girl. Boy impregnates girl. Boy brands himself as "fuckin' redneck" on MySpace page. Girl's mother is chosen as Republican nominee Vice President of the United States of America. Girl's mother becomes once-in-a-generation political folk sensation. Boy is forced into engagement with girl and is made to stand in front of entire country trying to look happy about it. Girl's mother loses election. Girl has son. Boy leaves girl. Boy becomes gay icon. Girl becomes, against all logic, spokesperson for conservative Christian abstinence-only education campaign. Boy is cut off from son. Boy claims girl's mom refers to one of her children as "retarded." Boy gets naked for Playgirl. Girl's mother is revealed to have been stockpiling money for upcoming presidential campaign. Boy suddenly, for no apparent reason, returns to girl. Boy tells own family in public statement that they will be dead to him if they keep saying mean things about girl's family. Boy marries girl.
We've seen it a thousand times, but it still somehow gets us right here in the heart…
Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston reveal exclusively in the new Us Weekly that they are getting married. And, they tell Us Weekly, former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has been kept in the dark about their plans … until now.
"We got engaged two weeks ago," Bristol, 19, tells Us Weekly. "It felt right, even though we don’t have the approval of our parents."
Oh, isn't it romantic?! And not-at-all straining the already-severely-frayed fabric of credulity that they didn't even bother to get the approval of their parents, one of whom is very likely to be the next GOP presidential nominee?! I find that highly believable and sweet!
