Sarah in the news.

Sarah Palin's in-law nabbed on drug charges

Now this: The Anchorage Daily News reports that Sherry L. Johnston, mother of Levi, the 18-year-old who is marrying Palin's daughter Bristol, was arrested on drug charges: six felony counts of misconduct involving a controlled substance.

The timing is great: a week before Christmas and one day before Bristol is due to give birth.

"Troopers charged Johnston with second-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance -- generally manufacturing or delivering drugs -- as well as fourth-degree misconduct involving controlled substances, or possession," according to the Daily News.

I don't think Levi's mother is a relative of Sarah Palin, Maybe one day she will be Bristol's MIL but not Sarah's

I see nothing wrong with that subject title.

And thank you for calling me special. I appreciate it.

So you think Sarah was in the news, too?

Maybe you should read the story.

BTW, I wasn't calling YOU special.

Other than that, you understood it perfectly.

Palin's future in-law arrested on drug charges

you think they meant Bristol?

Palin spokesman Bill McAllister would not comment on the arrest.

"This is not a state government matter,"

you think this is Bristols spokesman?

No, she wasn't....

This is a "news" story about someone unrelated to Sarah Palin.

Palin's future in-law arrested on drug charges

That's a false statment.

Just another opportunity to bash, that's all. But, whatever.

- Collapse -
You are now posting something you know is false.
Dec 19, 2008 11:16PM PST

You have already failed to show how the boyfriend's mother is an "in-law" of Sarah Palin, but you continue to post the false statement. That I guess, on further reflection, is not new behaviour.

i suggest you take it up with CNN
Dec 19, 2008 11:39PM PST

i merely copy from news websites, you have a problem with CNN?

mother will be her "in-law" but NEVER will be Sarah's "in-law" (just as your wife's mother is your "in-law" but is NOT your mother's "in-law".

I underlined the bit where I thought you meant me.

Obviously a mistake.

Shame. I thought we had turned a corner, you and me, and become buddies.

Heaven no!

I take it we can't just be friends then?

Ohh well. It would have taken hell to freeze over before that happened, I suppose. I saw a student thesis on that on the internet somewhere. Can't find it now. It was quite funny. I don't think you would have got it though.

That student proved that Hell is exothermic because it had already frozen over.

That's weird because it now means that you and I are buddies!!!

Hiya ol' Buddy. How's ya'll doing? Happy

Perhaps it was just a case of smoking marijuana and occasionally snorting cocaine when she could afford it (grin).
