This morning the world discovered what we told you last week: Levi Johnston is working on a book to talk trash about the Palins. Little Miss Sarah found out too, and she's so steamed she's up to her old shenanigans.

Palin obviously hasn't realized what the truth of what we told her last month: just as Levi would be just another anonymous, aging high-school hockey star if Palin hadn't decided to pose him as teen father of the year, out of power Palin would be all but disappearing from view if Johnston wasn't keeping her script interesting. So she spent today acting shocked, shocked that anyone would put him near a camera, when she should be lapping up the attention - just in time for her book, too!

In the first part of an interview on CBS' The Early Show, Johnston says he has knowledge about Sarah Palin that would be very damning to her (the full interview is below). Last week, we told you what his svengali, Tank Jones, told us—that Levi has plenty more dirt on the Palins and he's writing a book. It wasn't news to us.

Still, Palin's response was pretty great:

CBS should be ashamed for continually providing a forum to propagate lies. 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.

Oh, that is rich. This is coming from the woman who said David Letterman thought it was "OK, accepted and funny to talk about statutory rape," when he made a joke about her daughter, one he thought was aimed at her of-age daughter, not the younger one. Always blowing it out of proportion. Anyway, Levi isn't selling his body, he's just posing for some naked pictures. There is a huge difference. Well, we don't know how big the difference is yet, but we'll let you know once we see the test shots.

And of course the "naked Levi" controversy and her statement has nothing to do with the release of her book, Going Rogue, on November 17. No, she doesn't need to have her name in the press at all. And Levi doesn't need continued interest in his almost-but-not-quite mother-in-law to sell a bunch of nudie magazines to gay men. No way! These two continue to feed off each other like a snake eating its own tail or some kind of weird animal that survives by eating its own vomit.

Speaking of which, Johnston also said his upcoming nudie shoot will be very tasteful. "I'm not gonna just go out there and get naked," he said, putting to rest those rumors that there will be a roaring fire, a bear skin rug, and a snifter of brandy involved. Oh, Levi, you make us so sad. For more on the shoot, you'll have to tune in tomorrow. Of course, we won't be watching because we're not following this naked Levi Johnston thing one bit.
