Unlike ‘Tawdry Gossip’ About Sarah Palin

Posted on | September 22, 2011 | 61 Comments

. . . rumors that Levi Johnston’s sister is the kind of floozy who poses naked for Playboy magazine have been confirmed and documented:

There have been rumors around Wasilla that Mercede was one of the sources for Joe McGinniss’s book. It was reported in June 2010 that Mercede’s anti-Palin blog (now defunct) was created by none other than Jesse Griffin, recipient of a shocking e-mail from McGinniss.

If anyone wishes to share “tawdry gossip” about Mercede Johnston — perhaps to confirm widespread speculation that she got a boob job before doing her Playboy shoot — you can do so in the comments.

Don’t worry: Your unverified, anonymous allegations about her will not be fact-checked. Instead, I’ll just attribute the smears vaguely to a “friend” or say that “many people in Wasilla” believe whatever dirty things you say about Mercede. And once I get a lucrative contract from Random House for the “unauthorized biography” of Levi’s sister, then I’ll be a famous “investigative journalist,” just like Joe McGinniss.

UPDATE: I am profoundly grateful to the commenter on a previous post who notes that, four days ago, Griffin posted a “checklist” of his goals — “a mental list of priorities” — he sought to accomplish when he first began attacking Palin on his blog. No. 7 from that list:

Having listed these goals — which he says he conceived as soon as “Sarah Palin burst on the scene” in August 2008 — then Griffin checks off how he has fulfilled them. And notice how he says he fulfilled No. 7:

Griffin is a deranged Trig Truther who even today describes Trig Palin’s birth as a “hoax.” When you consider how Griffin boasts of having “provided support to . . . Joe McGinniss,” and the friendly familiarity indicated by McGinniss’s e-mail to Griffin, what does this tell you about McGinniss?

UPDATE II: Bob Belvedere calls McGinniss a “creepy cheap whore” and includes an uncropped (NSFW) photo of Ms. Johnston.

    Hey, I ran into that guy later on!

    Seemed very credible to me – even bought a couple of rounds.

    No, these are the type of people the “trailer trash” try to avoid, too. 

    Getting connected to the Palins was the best thing that ever happened to them, even if they squander their money quickly.  They were very likely to have ended up as prostitutes anyway; the celebrity lets them command a much higher rate.

    Oh, most definitely. I have to airbrush pics that are in bad shape all the time for my Rule 5 posts and someone really used the Blur, Smudge, and Dodge brushes.

    Thanks for the links Stacy, but, actually, I did crop her lower bum and the aureole is hidden.

    Nothing wrong with big thighs in and of themselves.

    Alaska boasts a significant Air Force presence, which I’ve heard that Mercedes really appreciates.  At least the male half.

    Perhaps one chapter could focus on that, with the title “Boys, my hangar is empty!”

    According to mr. jesse/gryphen the source of all fictitious information concerning Gov. Palin, the price of Mercede posing naked was cheap, 20K…….but what else would one expect.  Thanks to the groupies following him she not only had boob enhancement but bunns as well.   Whether the groupies are informed or not, doesn’t bother them, as they are determined to supply any and all information.

    Oh, by the way, how much do you think Andrew Breitbart  paid to jesse griffen/gryphen (immoral min.) for the copy of the email from joey boy mcginniss? 

    Also wonder how much he reports on his income tax returns for all the rumors he supplied to the rag mags and would he also have to ‘claim’ the tips he receives from his groupies.  They are always blessing him with ‘little’ gifts since he is doing such a wonderful job of ‘exposing Sarah Palin’.

    Yeah, but when they’re attached to something as naaaaaasty as this creature….. I mean, sure she can suck the chrome off a trailer hitch, but are you reeeeeealy sure you want it?  Desperation is so unattractive in a guy.

    I was merely pointing out that large thighs can be of tremendous use during coital endeavours.  I believe it was some vulgarians who once said: The bigger the cushion, the sweeter the pushing’.
