Sarah Palin's daughter's boyfriend's interview in one paragraph

October 13, 2008 |  7:51 pm

Breaking nuptial news in a nutshell:

Because it has so much to do with the upcoming presidential election, we're bringing you urgently all the important fascinating news from the Associated Press' interview today with Levi Johnston. Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin

He's the shy hockey-playing-kid who was ferociously hunted down by the media during the early Sarah Palin feeding frenzy because it was so essential that day to protect the public's right to know who knocked up the daughter of the governor no one ever heard of 24 hours before.

So now he's the 19-year-old future husband of 17-year-old Bristol Palin, whose mother is the 44-year-old governor of Alaska and vice presidential running mate for the 72-year-old John McCain.

According to the AP driveway interview: Levi likes to hunt. They've dated for years. Talked marriage before you-know-what. Baby due Dec. 18. Sounds like a boy. He's excited. He's an apprentice electrician. Drives a red Chevy Silverado. Wedding next summer. Barack Obama "seems like a good guy." Can't vote; didn't register. Still hopes Britol's mom wins.
