Playgirl model/former vice-presidential candidate’s daughter’s fiance-turned mayoral candidate-reality star hopeful Levi Johnston granted an interview to CBS’ Early Show that aired today (watch it below). Showing slightly more charisma than the sack of marbles it sounds like he has in his mouth, Johnston touched on everything from accusations of fame whoring (“I’m just taking opportuntiies as they come”) to that “scathing” interview he did in Vanity Fair last year. When asked about the apology he issued to Sarah Palin after saying some unfriendly things about her family in that article, Johnston said he only said he was sorry because that’s what his then-fiancee, Bristol, wanted. “I don’t really regret anything, but the only thing I wish I wouldn’t have done was put out that apology because it kinda makes me sound like a liar, and I’ve never lied about anything.” Hmm. Gotcha.
LJ also talked about his plans to run for mayor, reportedly as part of a possible reality show. When asked how he can win with zero experience leading anything, he replied: “I really don’t think mayor is about qualifications. It’s really about the people liking you and believing in you.”
That would be strikes two and three right there, no?
