Levi Johnston Mocks Sarah Palin by Running for Mayor of Wasilla

Levi Johnston Mayor of Wasilla?

According to Variety, Levi Johnston is following his former would be mother in law into both politics and reality TV. Johnston will be running for Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, and his campaign will be possibly accompanied by a reality television show titled “Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor’s Office.”

According to Variety.com, “Johnston will run for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska — yes, the same job that propelled Sarah Palin to governor of Alaska (and later, the vice presidential nomination) — in a new reality project being pitched by Stone and Co.” Johnston admitted that he has warmed to the idea, “But the more I think about it and look into it, I think there’s a possibility we can make it happen. It’s something that I want to do.”

The idea of Levi following in the estranged would be Mama Grizzly in law’s footsteps and becoming mayor is not as outlandish as it may seem. The current mayor was elected with only 466 votes, and if he wins Johnston, unlike Palin, promises to stick around and not quit. The show’s producers are pushing the show as an alternative to Sarah Palin’s version of Alaska on TLC, “He will give us a real inside look into who he is as a father, a skilled hunter, an avid dirt biker, and his journey down the road of small-town politics… right after he gets his high school diploma.”

Stone and Company, the show’s producers have also produced programs like, Top Design (Bravo), NYC prep (Bravo), and The Man Show (Comedy Central), so anyone who thinks that this joke might want to think again. Of course, Johnston is out to make a living, and the added bonus of upping the ante in his feud with Sarah Palin had to be appealing, but let’s be honest, this is an oddly compelling concept, and if Levi is able to become mayor, it sort of puts a damper on that Real America Executive Experience, Palin is always toutin’.

It will be interesting to see what mean girl Sarah Palin has to say about this, because we all know that the self described pit bull with lipstick can’t keep her mouth shut or let the smallest personal slight real or perceived go by. Don’t be surprised if the Palin political machine takes a special interest in the mayoral election in her hometown.

  1. Like everything else that Levi has talked about…he will change his mind. I seriously think that most of the stuff he SAYS he’s gonna do is just to scare Scarrah! ;-)

  2. They did already start shooting the pilot, and if he backs out, he will have to pay big dollars most likely….

    But running for mayor? Hm. He’s doing it. We shall see.

  3. Jason thanks for this. Even I will be tempted to watch if this idea takes off…….this has all the potential to be TV Comedy Gold.

  4. OMGoodness…..What is the Grifter and goons going to say about this?? Between the “eye roll seen around the world” video and now this with Levi….I haven’t been able to get NOTHING done today!!! Tomorrow is my daughters 12th B-day and I have so much to do!!! I can hardly tear myself away from the computer! Thanks alot Wasilla Hillbillies…now my own kid is going to hate me! :D

  5. Thanks to you guys for the cool video of the eye roll that supposedly never occurred. We added it to Sarah Jones’ latest, with link of course. :) I don’t watch reality TV, but I would watch Levi.

  6. If your kids hate you now, you will fit right in with the Wasilla Palin mob…Quick! get off the computer! :-) Enjoy the b-day tomorrow!

    Oh, and I hate reality TV but I would SO watch this. Every single episode.

  7. Do it, Levi! Why not? Ya got something better to do?

    A high school diploma is actually not required. Hurry. Register your candidacy, quick! Before they make it a requirement.
    It’s no more ridiculous than Joe Miller. The voters will speak.

  8. Just the fact that Levi is saying he’s contemplating this move, is enough to perturb the SP system. Even if he does nothing more about it, I love the idea that he’s willing to do this much. However, if he comes out with another fake public apology … ? And where’s Trigg …?

  9. I think it is hilarious and if he has enough young friends to support him he could do it.He couldn’t do any worse than palin did and probably much better.Even if it goes no where igt would be popcorn time watching the palins and heaths blow a gasket.

  10. This hilarious news has brightened my day. What a great idea. If I lived there, I’d vote for him as mayor. I’ve never watched a reality show but I’d watch Levi.

  11. Facepalm.

    Just when you think the stupid can’t get any deeper, someone seems hell-bent on disproving it.

    Hell, he’ll probably end up on America’s Got Talent, as part of the whole “You could be a celebrity, too,” campaign.
