Bristol: Sarah Palin Hasn't Forgiven Levi Yet

Posted: 12:55 PM ET
By Tim Nudd and Sandra Sobieraj Westfall
Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston have patched things up, and may hear wedding bells chiming. But it's going to take a whole lot more for Bristol's mother, Sarah Palin, to forgive her daughter's boyfriend.

"With her, his actions will have to speak louder than words," Bristol, 19, tells PEOPLE. "And he'll have to get his education and a job and be willing to support Tripp the right way. And then I think she'll come around."

What does she mean by "the right way" to raise their 18-month-old son?

"Like, not just have him around when the cameras are around but be there all the time and have a legitimate job and be supportive financially and just set a good example for him," says Bristol.

According to Bristol, Johnston is really changing. "Tons and tons of progress is being made," she says. "Like, he'll change a diaper without me even having to tell him, or he'll take him when I need a 15-minute break, or he'll come over and help with Tripp, and all that stuff is just so much appreciated."

Come on CNN, don't you guys have a clue? The "right way" is the right winged, divinity starving, pluralistic-ally devoid, politically motivated, donation fed, anally retentive ideologies we all need to sustain our prominence on the dance floors of society. Get in the swing of it CNN or you'll find yourselves dancing with a mannequin covered in sheep wool.

Yes, this SARAH PALIN will never get elected to any office. Who wants """"""a journalist """""" who had to take 5 years to graduate for any office in our country. We are not stupid. She needs to go home and raise her kids.

She should forgive him. They are kindred spirits. They both use their family to further their careers.

Who is Grandma Palin to "forgive" whatever ? She shoved her family in front of American Public in a very confrontational way !!! She interferred evey step of the way in the young couple's life, and on and on......... Frankly , Bristol does look pregnant, (which is nobodoes business). One can only say "....there but for the Grace of God go I..."
Could EVERYONE possibly get offf his / their backs ? Sarah has a lot to answer for , interfering a young couples life like that.

Best of Luck Bristol and Levin.

Bristol isn't pregnant...She has just survived a winter of Moose meat lasagna's, Moose meatloaf, Moose burger's, Moose meatballs and pasta, Moose cordon bleu, Moose steaks, etc..etc. heavy on the moose. She'll get back in shape and will enjoy the beach weather for a week and get back on the Moose wagon. lol I do wish them both well, free of the Granny that just makes me shrink...That moose must really be flying out the Wahzoo in Alaska...very popular place for Moose hunters....and political consensus..Good luck kiddos, stay away from the unforgiving one for a while until she unloads her GUNS...

I say good luck to this couple and their baby they are young and of course make mistakes ....but with support they will do just fine and their child will benefit most of all.
