In a forthcoming New York magazine article on the Sarah Palin brand, Levi Johnston tells author Gabriel Sherman that "he is working on a memoir that would air the true story of the Palin household."
A brief excerpt from Mike Allen: "Sarah Palin is a singular national industry... This January, she signed a three-year contributor deal with Fox News worth $1 million a year, according to people familiar with the deal... Nowadays, for both poles of the political spectrum but especially for the right, politics is a business -- the entertainment business... It was Fox's Roger Ailes who had the insight that the American right was an underserved market, one with a powerful kind of brand loyalty."
Yeah, he's only 19 and young people are well-known for doing pretty dumb things that they later come to regret. But surely someone around him has whispered in his ear once or twice that as financially beneficial as its been, exploiting this intense dislike you have for your daughter's grandmom can't be in the best interest of your son. But then, to be fair maybe Bristol Palin needs to stay out of the spotlight too.
