A year ago, Levi Johnston said he couldn't watch his ex Bristol Palin on Dancing With the Stars because he was too busy studying up on the issues that affect the people of Wasilla, Alaska.

His attorney tells the Associated Press that Levi's putting aside his deep passion for local politics to focus on the release of his hilariously-titled memoir Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin's Crosshairs. His manager gave Radar a slightly different explanation, saying, "Levi doesn't want the office of the Mayor to be a joke and so he's not going to do it right now."
