Still, don't know how Bristol Palin got on the show in the first place? She's no "star" of any kind.

Been on enough boards to spot the nasty libbers. Why are you lefties so nasty all the time? You are rude to the extreme. YOU lefties are so stupid to realize that the more you put down Bristol you make people like me ticked and that in turn will vote for her [even though she does not deserve it] to continue. Same thing happened with Marie Osmond and her brother, you lefties just do not like people with beliefs. Yeah it's easy to pump up her votes with 5 cell phone, 6 laps/pc's and 2 landlines available.

Now, you don't think the liberals and the lame stream media who have been attacking Bristol
for the last year are going to feel ashamed of ginning up some wackos to do things like this, do you?

Having no shame... that is one true definition of a liberal. Being a s*** of the earth is another.

How about the ex Clinton advisor, Jami Floyd, calling Sarah Palin an ******* on MSNBC and getting away with it?
How about even FOX contributors openly laughing about Sarah Palin?
How about Joy Behar and Whoopi and the rest of the sluts on TV attacking Sarah at every turn?
How about Olbermann, Matthews, Schultz, O'Donnell, etc.??
How about Gawker, Huffington Post, etc. for feeding the flames?

And how about the National Enquirer with a story such as this.... that Willow could be pregnant?


The liberals and lame stream media are life forms that suck at the bottom of the cesspool and breed more s***. They frolic in the bile and hate and try to act like they are open minded, forgiving, accepting and loving. They are the opposite.... liberals are racists, haters, fascist, violent and just all round useless human beings.

TMZ likes to roll around in the bile too.

If this was a publicity stunt to take some of the heat away from the facebook scandal that is really messed up. Or if this was someone trying to be funny and send white powder to a 19 year old because you don't like her or her mom that is really messed up too. What is this world coming to?

For anyone who cares (anyone?) while DWTS airs on ABC, the producers rent the high-def production facilities at CBS in Los Angeles.

Those crazy libs.......wasting out tax dollars again... Please stop bringing out the police, ER services, etc., until after you get some counseling. Why are liberals so buttbackwards??? Nobody matters but them. No wonder they are so pro socialism, as long they're not working and getting freebies, they're not paying taxes for police, fire, etc. Idiots.

Publicity stunt is right....i wouldn't vote for her anyway

DWTS is rigged. How can someone so fat and not photogenic like her win when the judges clearly say she is a loser.
