Sarah Palin & Levi's War of Words

One person not running out to pick up the issue of Playgirl featuring Levi Johnston? His child's grandmother, Sarah Palin.

Levi appeared on The Early Show Wednesday, and used his time to badmouth the former governor of Alaska and her family, claiming that Sarah referred to her infant son Trig, who has Down syndrome, as "retarded." He also hinted that he has more information that could bury the former vice-presidential candidate.

"I'm not going to go that far," Levi said. "You know, I mean, if I really wanted to hurt her, I could very easily. But there's – I'm not going to do it."

But Sarah wasn't about to let the 19-year-old get off so easily, and released a biting statement about her grandson's daddy.

"We have purposefully ignored the mean-spirited, malicious and untrue attacks on our family," she said. "We, like many, are appalled at the inflammatory statements being made or implied. Trig is our 'blessed little angel' who knows it and is lovingly called that every day of his life. Consider the source of the most recent attention-getting lies. Those who would sell their body for money reflect a desperate need for attention and are likely to say and do anything for even more attention."

Is Levi crossing the line? Chime in below!
