Levi: My Political Platform Is, Um, Uh...
Cut him some slack, he's only had a month to think about it

(Newser) – Levi Johnston is running for mayor of Wasilla, so it seems logical to ask him about his political platform. Just one problem … he doesn’t have one. “What can you do that no one else can do? Why should they vote for you?” Whoopi Goldberg asked him yesterday on The View. “At this point in time, I couldn’t tell you,” came the response, garnering a chorus of sad “Oh, Levi” moans from the co-hosts.

“I said I was running for mayor, what, a month ago?” Johnston defended himself. He went on to explain, at least, his motivation for running, Zap2It reports: “Wasilla's a great place, I just want to keep it that way for my son.” But perhaps this whole thing will work in his favor, writes Peter Gilstrap on E!: “Think about it … hunky Levi actually got all five of the View queens to feel sorry for him because he's too dumb to lie. Good God, this whole thing just might work.” To watch more of the interview ("Qualifications for mayor? There really are none."), click here.
