MARK IS JUST AS DUMB AS BRISTOL. FIRST OF ALL, HE NEEDS TO SHUT UP WITH HIS LISP TONGUE SELF BECAUSE I DONT BELIEVE NO DEMOCRATS ARE COMING UP TO HIM SAYING THAT THEY VOTE FOR HIM AND BRISTOL BECAUSE THEY LOVE THEIR STORY. THEY ALL GOT STORIES TO TELL. HE IS A LIAR AND DONT LIKE NOTHING ABOUT MARK OR BRISTOL. THEY BOTH SHOULD GO DOWN AND NEVER GET BACK UP. MARK, BRISTOL, AND SARAH ARE ALL DUMB.

You liberals are something else. Aim that same hatred at some gay kid and you'd be bashed to hell for being a bully. Aim it at a kid with last name Palin and it's all good. Open minded and fair that's you.

If they wanted accurate judging they'd restrict the votes to a panel of dance specialist judges not the general public.
So because the general public is voting it's nothing but a popularity contest so stop whining.

For one thing Bristol never should have been on DWTS. She is not a "STAR". Her only claim to fame is her being an unwed teenage mother of a political candidate and I also feel that ABC by putting her on the show is sending a message to teenagers it's ok to get pregnant as a teen and have a baby without being married. As far as her dancing..she can't...most of the time the expression on her face is like "duh what step do I take next". She should have been booted off the show the first go around or at least the 2nd but mainly she never should have been on the show. I didn't care for Brandy at all as she came across as thinking she was better than everyone else...and ego trip if you ask me...and besides that she is just down right ugly. If Bristol ends up winning this season, then DWTS can kiss it's ratings goodbye and I for one will never watch it again and I'm sure there will be plenty more viewers that feel the same way. The show is suppose to be about the best dancer..not about some unwed teen mother who's mother happens to be in politics. She should be embarrassed that she's remaining on the show whenever knows she's a terrible dancer.

Everyone needs to accept that Bristol will probably win. It will be a hollow victory and probably not a lot of people clapping but this has become a cause from the Tea Party people. You only need to look at the sites. Seriously this is a thing for them.

I feel bad for the other dancers. Would you even want to rehearse any more? What's the point? Why have dancing at all? Just have everyone stand around and let people call in, then hand Bristol the trophy.

Since dancing is not being evaluated, since a significantly less skilled dancer will win, the actual dancing has no point. I would hate to be Jennifer and Kyle this week. There's no point.

Mark--You are probably the reason that you and Bristol are still on the show--by your words you show that you are a very polite and well spoken person. Your support of your partner is very endearing and I hope the two of you go on to win!

Yes, M. Ballas lost me a long time ago and, yes, he and D. Hough are both too "touchy/feely" with all of their partners. Guess they attempt to make-up for Maksim's natural sensuality as a male dance professional.

Palin and her out-of-wedlock baby mama (who are not setting a good example on behalf of young women), are psychologically messed-up (as are her other daughters) and Mark has been playing into their political mind game and non-professionally flaunting all over his ridiculous partner and her family. If Palin is on the Republican ticket in two years, you can hold DWTS and Mark Ballas responsible.

The DWTS show is rigged though maybe it was all along and many of us simply bought into voting which is the shows way to determine the number of viewers...clever idea, eh?

Kurt and Brandy were let go due to a pathetic young woman (who isn't the shy, sweet, and ethical creature she pretends to be). She has done nothing (along with her illiterate mother) but to make the life of the baby's father miserable. Every child (needs) both parents involved in their fleeting life. Sarah Palin is a somewhat physically attractive but very EVIL and disgusting woman who proved she is an incompetent loser by leaving her Governship of Alaska in midstream. Every Republican of any commonsense needs to get that woman tossed from the Republican Party.

Mark is certainly entitled to his opinion, but Bristol Palin's comments during the show have been arrogant, mean-spirited, and almost rude. She believes she should win because she's "the most improved." She's stated that everyone (a tad of a generalization) in America relates to her. She declared that she's real, "not phony like Hollywood people." She made rude faces & comments on camera regarding the judge's reaction to her semi-final waltz. She's a year older than Kyle but he's eons more well-mannered and talented. I won't be watching the final...in fact, I'll probably not be watching DWTS again. Of all the people who've ever been on DWTS, this young woman is the least deserving.

I believe this show is called "Dancing with the Stars"....Bristol is not a star at any level so the first question is how did she get on the show to begin with. This show is oftentimes groveling for "stars" and "stretching" to call some of their contestants "stars". Unfortunately Bristol can't dance but has improved but still is not a "star"...many other people could have accomplished the same thing she has but they are not "stars". Maybe they should change the name of the show to "Dancing with whoever we can get to show up".....

Come on people use your heads, do we want white trash like the Palin's running the country and winning popularity contests.

Its sad that someone with a lack of talent can come this close to winning the show. And someone with a lack of brains or political experience is delusional enough to think she can run for or even win the presidency. What is our country coming to. They might as well let Schwartzeneger (sic?) run for the presidency.
