File this as one of the most jaw-dropping clips ever. On 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated), Levi Johnston tries and fails miserably to explain his candidacy for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska.

When asked by Barbara Walters what his qualifications are for mayor, Johnston points out the job doesn't call for any and that his lack of experience shouldn't be an impediment. "Qualifications for mayor, there really are none," he said, to several loud guffaws from the audience. "You've got to live in city limits for one year. You don't need a high school diploma, which I'm working on anyway."

Later, Whoopi Goldberg asks Johnston to give details on his platform, but he comes up woefully short. "At this point in time, I couldn't tell you," he said, adding that he only announced his run for mayor a month ago and hasn't yet planned a strategy.

"But, usually when people say they're running for mayor, they've thought about it before they actually run," Sherri Shepherd countered.
