Now that Bristol Palin is no longer Levi Johnston's fiancee, she is free to voice her concerns about Levi's qualifications for his Wasilla, Alaska Mayor run in 2012. In a new issue of Us Weekly, the daughter of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin said, "I never knew he had political aspirations."

"I'm glad that Levi has not given up on completing his education and is looking for steady employment," Bristol, who has 1-year-old son Tripp Easton Mitchell with former Playgirl model Levi, went on. Although Bristol doubted Levi's capability to run for Mayor, Levi's rep Tank Jones insisted, "He's going to take political college courses. He's going to really deal with the issues."

And while Bristol was glad Levi "has not given up on completing his education", current Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, Mayor Verne E. Rupright, urged Levi to finish his diploma first if he is serious about his intention. Verne told ET, "Well, it is a little early to declare."

"Usually most wait until the year the seat is up. But since I am nearly old enough to be Levi's grandfather I think it would be wise for him to get a high school diploma and keep his clothes on," Verne continued. "The voters like that!"

Levi Johnston is set run in the race on October 4, 2011. He told the site, "It's for real. I'm going to go there and do what I can. Obviously that's where I grew up and that's my home. It's always going to be home to me. [My son] Tripp's going to grow up there and I want to change a few things."

Its about time Palin comes out from hiding behind Facebook and Fox-the so called news station.

That Palin clan is all nuts. As for Sarah getting better, she has speechwriters now. When cut loose, she is the same incoherent twit.

Voters in Wasilla, please tell me that you are not going to vote for Johnston (assuming he does run). Surely you have higher aspirations than electing a high school dropout. Surely your town deserves better.

I am appalled and disgusted that this group of people have the audacity to aspire for positions that they are not physically and mentally equipped for and people around them are urging them onward.! Don't we have enough klutzes running our political arenas right now? I know why our country is in such a dire state right now, it's run by thieves , swindlers and ineptitude. Are we going to add assholes to the pile?

I think if Sarah Palin hold back and gains more political experience where she can deal with economics and foreign affairs in a mature and intelligent manner that in the future, not this next presidential election, that she would have a much better chance of running for the top political office. I did not vote for her because I did not think she had the experience she needed at the time, but she's working hard and I noticed an improvement in her speeches . As far as that other dodo who is her son in law, he should get a job sweeping up gyms.

Bristol is one to talk. Instead of being a so called celebrity, she should be in college. That family is all whacko and snarky.
