(Newser) – When Levi Johnston is criticizing your parenting skills, it may be time for some personal reflection. Johnston tells TMZ he's been watching Bristol Palin's reality show and is "disgusted" by the behavior of their son, Tripp, who, in one recent episode, used the F-word to refer to Aunt Willow. Tripp is getting "no real parenting" and is on a "downward spiral," Johnston says, adding that his son "deserves a better family." Apparently Levi's idea of a better family is a broke dad and his pregnant girlfriend, because he has picked up the paperwork needed to try to obtain full custody of Tripp.

Tripp is fucked. There isn't a person on either side of his mightily fucked up family who is interested in raising him. His parents and his grandparents are all trailer trash. The only thing any of them are interested in is money.

"Pot calling the kettle black" as my mother used to say.

The sad thing is, this poor child is in the same situation that about half the children are in. Neither parent is worth a crap but they gotta live somewhere. These people just happen to be in the news but they sure aren't unique.
