Johnston, the former boyfriend of Palin's daughter Bristol, said he would be happy to strip off. The 19-year-old self-confessed "redneck" from Wasilla, Alaska seemed unaware that Playgirl has a large gay readership.
"I would do it," Johnston said during a behind-the-scenes video for his recent Vanity Fair photoshoot. Although he had never read Playgirl, he claimed to be familiar with its contents: "I'm guessing it's a dude posing for women."
Unzipped magazine has extended an offer. Rick Andreoli, executive editor of Unzipped Media, said Johnston was a gay icon. "The gay community's outpouring of support and adoration for Levi Johnston has been loud and clear since he burst onto the political scene last fall.
"Now, having learned of his desire to bare all for his fans and admirers, we've sent an official offer letter to his manager and eagerly await their response."
There is also this new piece of nugget:
He also claimed that Palin's carefully constructed image as a moose-hunting "hockey mom" was false. "She says she goes hunting and lives off animal meat - I've never seen it. I've never seen her touch a fishing polie. She had a gun in her bedroom and one day she asked me to show her how to shoot it."
Aren't there pictures galore of Palin hunting and fishing, starting when she was a kid? How many actually believe she asked Levi to show her how to shoot her gun.
She should have used it to shoot him.
