Levi Johnston, the father of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s grandson and soon-to-be Playgirl model, received an award last night from Gawker Media’s adult website, Fleshbot, for his full-frontal contribution to pop culture.
The Marquee blog caught up with Levi, escorted by a large bodyguard named Tank, before he took the stage at Manhattan nightclub, “The Box" to accept his trophy, an 11-inch custom-crafted sexual device. A man of few words, Levi shares his thoughts on cougars, dating and how he thinks he will measure up in Playgirl.
