ANCHORAGE (AP)  — Levi Johnston is promising to set the record straight about the Palin family.

Touchstone Publishing has a fall publication date for Johnston’s book, “Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs.”

Johnston fathered a child with Bristol Palin, the daughter of the former Alaska governor, when they were teenagers. The pregnancy was announced days after Palin was selected as the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate. The couple broke up after the birth of their son, Tripp, and reconciled briefly.

He’s had a contentious relationship with the Palins.

Johnston says the book, first reported by Monday, will “tell the truth” about that relationship, including his “sense of Sarah and my perplexing fall from grace.” He says he’s doing it “for me, for my boy Tripp and the country.”

    So “for his boy , Tripp” he’s going to cash in on a trash-talk book that bags on the kid’s mother and grandmother. Sounds like he makes for a truly great dad!

    Maybe he should try writing a book about his own family first describing their drug problems, lack of education and over abundance of stupidity. After he has done that, then he can write a book slamming someone else’s family since he thinks that his family is above reproach and have never done anything wrong.
