Mother of Palin Daughter's Boyfriend Arrested

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Alaska state troopers have arrested the
mother of Bristol Palin's boyfriend on drug charges.
Sherry L. Johnston was arrested Thursday after troopers served a
search warrant on a Wasilla home. The 42-year-old Johnston has been
charged with six felony drug counts.
Troopers did not identify the drug involved in a brief mention
on the agency's Web site.
Johnston is the mother of 18-year-old Levi Johnston. Alaska Gov.
Sarah Palin, the GOP nominee for vice president, announced in
September that her 18-year-old daughter, Bristol, was pregnant and
Johnston was the father.
Sherry Johnston was released from jail in Palmer on $5,000 bail.

    Okay folks, leave Sarah Palin alone. She ran for vice-president and did her best. It took guts and I admire her for it. Don't be mean spirited by saying bad things about her. Let he/she that is without fault/sin cast the first stone. If we all examine our conscience we will find that we are not without shortcomings. Last start the new year off by being more compassionate and understanding of others. Maybe, just maybe our world will be a better place to live. Peace and God bless everyone.

    Why this has about as much to do with anything as Obama's aunt living illegally in the United States, or his half brother back in Kenya, or Bill Ayers. I am glad that the neo-cons were equally outraged by these stories. Just because Sarah Palin's daughter is going to marry the son of a drug dealer... why that is no one's business and shouldn't even be news!

    Ok? I am still wondering what this has to do with anything... I mean seriously is the media and America so threatened by Gov. Palin that they have to scoop this far deep in order to find trash on someone? Seriously folks come on, do you really want to go this route and say that Palin is a bad person because of someone her daughter dates/marries/mothers their child? If that was true then I would hate for people to judge you for some people your children date. YOu might think you know them because of where their parents work or how well they smooth you over the first time they come to dinner and sit in your dinning room. But lets be honest, this world is a 6 person ring! With every six people you will find out you know someone who knows them as well! GEEZ WIZZ. Lets look at Obama and all the lovely things he has to offer. (GET REAL MEDIA/AMERICA)
