Levi Johnston, Sarah Palin's future son-in-law, has broken his silence and given an interview to the Associated Press.

  • Johnston on the rumors about his fiancé, Palin's daughter Bristol, specifically that the two are being forced to wed: "None of that's true. We both love each other. We both want to marry each other. And that's what we are going to do."
  • Johnston on how the McCain campaign is treating him, after its initial advice that he avoid the media: "They're not telling me anything right now. It's pretty chill."
  • Johnston on joining his future mother-in-law on the campaign trail: "At first, I was nervous. Then I was like, 'Whatever.'"

Johnston also said friends created his MySpace page, which briefly gained him some infamy, as he was described on it as a "fuckin' redneck."
