Levi Johnston Is Asked About Pakistan for Some Reason

By

Lawrence O'Donnell went from interviewing Vice-President Joe Biden on the debut episode of his new prime-time MSNBC show The Last Word Monday night to interviewing Levi Johnston on the second episode of the show last night. As part of the interview, O'Donnell asked Johnston the same questions asked of Sarah Palin by Katie Couric during their classic interview two years ago. The point of the exercise, though, was unclear. Johnston is (supposedly) running for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, next year (as part of a reality show), and as far as we know, the mayor of Wasilla doesn't need to have an opinion about troop levels in Afghanistan or Pakistan's relationship with Al Qaeda.
