Meg Stapleton Stands Up To Mean Levi Johnston Over Sarah Palin Calling Trig 'Retard'
And so continues the most sordid tale in the history of Earth, in which Sarah Palin and Levi Johnston argue publicly about who called Trig Palin a "retard," how many times, and with what inflection. You'll recall that yesterday, Leviwent on teevee, uhh, some show, let's say game one of the World Series, in which someone—probably Derek Jeter—asked him whether or not it was true that Palin called Trig a "retard" constantly. He affirmed! Now Meg Stapleton is like, "Yeah, nice try, except impossible, because were too busy calling Trig a 'blessed little angel' to call him a retard." No but like actually.
So here's the "she said" part of this thrilling melee:
"We have purposefully ignored the mean spirited, malicious and untrue attacks on our family," Palin spokeswoman Meg Stapleton said in the e-mail, on which Palin's lawyer Thomas Van Flein was copied. "We, like many, are appalled at the inflammatory statements being made or implied. Trig is our 'blessed little angel' who knows it and is lovingly called that every day of his life. Even the thought that anyone would refer to Trig by any disparaging name is sickening and sad."
Stapleton went on to blast Johnston, who is preparing for a photo shoot with Playgirl magazine, as desperate for publicity.
"Consider the source of the most recent attention-getting lies - those who would sell their body for money reflect a desperate need for attention and are likely to say and do anything for even more attention," she said.
It's... entirely possible Meg Stapleton has never met Sarah Palin is the take-away from all this.
