Sounds like someone thinks Bristol needs to move faster on the dance floor and sent her a few bumps.

The timing is rather convenient. Deflects attention away from facebookgate.

It was the sugary powder from the 4 dozen doughnuts her thighs require per day.

Blatant publicity stunt to get her sympathy votes. Just like the rumors Bristol started that Maxim didn't like her last week.

The whole family is playing this like a fiddle.

I hope she wins so people can see how much of a joke this is

This is what happens when liberals don't get their way.... They use other methods to eliminate the competition....

I know liberals hate Palin a lot but it's not worth killing her oldest daughter for...please stop.
