This has nothing to do with politics. Bottom line, the Palin girl can't dance. I would like to know who is voting. What is wrong with their eye sight?

If it wasn't for politics she wouldn't have been invited to do the show to begin with. Those of us who vote for her think she's done remarkably well for someone who is a real amateur. All the others are or have been professional entertainers. Bristol was a receptionist until joining this competition.

I must admit though that it doesn't bother me a bit to see so many liberal pukes suffering over bristol having done so well!

anyone who thinks she has improved greatly has lower standards than she does! She has NOT improved-she still stinks and everybody with half a brain knows shes still there because ******gers have figured out a way to override the voting system and cast multiple multiple votes. Anyone who has to cheat and get her mommy to help her win is a LOSER-pure and simple. Fat moose needs to go back to Alask with the rest of the herd.

I really hope she loses. I hope she literally breaks both of her legs. The powder should have been thrown in her face.

Um....isn't DWTS on ABC? Why would a letter be sent to CBS studios? Is this TMZ or the letter sender's error??

Awwww....when they trace this to a Tea Partier trying to make poor NON-STAR Bristol sympathetic, I hope they give the news max publicity.

Remember that crazy middle aged Republican who lived with his mother who got caught sending powder to "liberal" commentators like that Olberman guy? I would not be surprised if they trace this event to someone on those lines.
