[Hornby] chose to write about Levi Johnston, who had his 15 minutes of fame last year when he got Sarah Palin’s teenage daughter pregnant and declared himself on MySpace to be a “f***ing redneck”. Hornby clears his throat and recites so sheepishly that I have to get him to repeat it:

“I woke up this morning, what do I see?/3,000 cameras pointing at me./ They say: ‘Levi.’ I say: ‘Yeah that’s me, sir,’/ ‘You just knocked up the VP nominee’s daughter.’”

“Hopefully, it’s sympathetic” he says. “It’s the tension between his bravado and the panic he must have felt.”
