Bristol Levi

1. Still another variation on “getting it in writing?”

2. I’m just wondering how fresh the tattoo is.

3. Wingers answer to the Obama fist bump?

Call it another example of how the visual media gets sucked into the cultural politics.  This shot is fresh on the newswire from last evening.  The caption reads:

The hand of Levi Johnston (L), and his girlfriend Bristol Palin hold hands as they attend the third session of the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota September 3, 2008. Bristol Palin is the daughter of U.S. Republican vice-presidential candidate and Gov. of Alaska, Sarah Palin. Johnston has a tattoo of Bristol’s name on his left ring finger The campaign has announced that Bristol is five months pregnant and plans to marry Johnston.
