Bonnie Says: Sarah Palin Can't Be President In This Fractured Time When She Can't Even Make Peace With Her In-Laws Who Call Her “Retarded”!

Sarah Palin may think she has what it takes to be President, but shouldn’t she prove she has what it takes by at least negotiating peace in her war with daughter Bristol’s baby daddy Levi Johnston and his sister Mercede Johnston?

She really needs to bury the hatchet with her “in-laws” from Wasilla for the sake of her  own reputation and especially for the sake of her grandson, Tripp. Otherwise, we’ll continue to wonder how she’ll ever negotiate with a foreign enemy let alone Congress at home. Levi’s sister Mercede is as tough as any enemy speaking out in a big and vicious way in an interview in the September issue of Playboy. Among the many things she is happy to say are these tidbits.

“I think she’d (Sarah) have had a mental breakdown if she was elected (president). As governor she quit on us. What does that say about her? Is she prepared to govern the whole country? Absolutely not. She can’t even answer Katie Couric‘s questions.”

On Sarah’s mothering abilities! “She’s never there for her kids. She doesn’t make her children go to school. She’d rather parade them around and put on a show at book signings or conventions.”

She is furious about Sarah’s treatment of her brother Levi, who is the father of Sarah’s grandson, Tripp. “Not once did Sarah contact us and say, ‘Is this okay?'”, about her decision to take Levi into the spotlight, when she became John McCain‘s running mate in 2008.

After all — Levi was only 18 at the time and hardly able to stand up to the powerful Governor of Alaska. “She literally took Levi from a hunting trip and flew him to the Republican Convention. He didn’t have a choice. I don’t blame John McCain — this is all Sarah Palin. She didn’t have to announce on stage that Bristol was pregnant. She doesn’t care, as long as she’s going to the top. But it’s screwed my whole family up. Levi was a prop, and once they didn’t need him, he was out the door.”

No matter what your political persuasion you have to admit that Mercede’s accusations have a ring of truth when it comes to the Palin treatment of her brother.

He went from being the convenient fiancé, shaking hands with John McCain and seated front and center at the Republican convention, to the family’s outspoken outcast, by the time baby Tripp was born.

He claimed Sarah and her husband Todd fought all the time, rarely slept together and were considering divorce, and that Sarah was never around for her children, among other things. My point is that there is serious venom between Sarah and Bristol Palin, and Levi and Mercede Johnston.

For good measure, Mercede also calls Bristol — “the most evil person I’ve ever known” and a “sociopath” and claims that she , Mercede, has been virtually excluded from baby Tripp’s life.

Now, we all know that Sarah Palin can dish it out against her political opponents … and Katie Couric. She’s even been accused of inciting violence against Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords by placing  her district in crosshairs on an “attack map” that she featured on her facebook.

Do we really need a “Pitbull in lipstick” or a Mamma Grizzly ( Mercede calls that Sarah nickname “retarded” ) leading our country now? A woman who’s instinct is to attack even the father and aunt of her “beloved” grandchild, rather than reach out and make them a part of her family?

Our country needs a leader right now who will heal our divisions and help us all pull together out of our serious troubles. Not one who will fracture as irrevocably as she’s fractured her own family!

What do you think Hollywoodlifers? Tell me now!
