Wedding is off.

Few may be surprised by this turn of events, but it appears as though the Bristol Palin / Levi Johnston engagement is over.

Mercede Johnston claims the 18-year-old daughter of Alaska's governor dumped her brother, Levi, an out-of-work high school drop out. The sister claims Bristol Palin, who took her beau to the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn., has made it tough for her brother to spend time with his 2-month-old son, Tripp.

"Levi tries to visit Tripp every single day, but Bristol makes it nearly impossible," ... "She [Bristol] tells him he can't take the baby to our house because she doesn't him around 'white trash'!" she said.

In December, Levi Johnston's mother, Sherry, was arrested in an undercover drug sting and charged with six felonies involving the pain killer oxycontin.

It always seemed to me that the announcement of their plans to marry, which coincided with the news shortly after Sarah Palin was named McCain's running mate that her daughter was pregnant and unwed, was merely a tactic to silence critics.

If those teenagers had been madly in love and wanting to spend the rest of their lives together, the wedding would have been scheduled to take place before the birth of Palin's grandchild, preferably during the presidential election campaign to take advantage of MASSIVE media coverage.

In fact, it reflects well on Sarah that she didn't pressure the young couple to tie the knot ASAP and let them wait it out to see if their marriage would actually happen.

You're a better woman than I am, dBO, giving Sarah credit. We don't know whether she pressured the kids or not. Maybe she did and Bristol stood up to her. After all, Bristol did not toe the line on the abstinence-only bullshit in her recent interview.

Well then, perhaps it's Bristol who deserves all the credit for waiting it out and resisting pressure from all sides, as it sounds as though her ex-betrothed's family members are not above exploiting their relationship to the Palins.

It was pretty plain from the beginning of their time in the limelight that they disliked each other, at best. They were just barely able to remain in each other's presence, and in fact only did so because of intense pressure from the campaign circumstances. I'm quite relieved she's not marrying him, but I won't give any credit to Sarah for that.

Yeah, brebis noire, I thought so too. In photos together, they seemed very uncomfortable. OK, they're just kids, but it didn't look good.
