Big Brother may be watching this site. I use FireFox for a browser for about 4 years now. It has never crashed. However when I started looking at this powder story it crashed. Is the MAN snooping?

Whose idea was it to invite Bristol Palin on this show? That person should be terminated. The trouble that swirls around this young woman and her clan is epic. After all, she's no star! She's famous for nothing.

Why put a girl who got knocked up at 16 on the air and call her a star? Trouble certainly followed her and I fear if the Tea Party votes for her and she wins, that's it for this show. No one will ever watch and vote again.

And certainly no star wants to be humiliated like this with a political party voting in a fraudulent manner causing somebody to win who cannot dance at all.

What a mess. Good luck ABC. Somebody really screwed up.

Generally I would vote for any Republican over a Democrat, even Palin over Obama. That being said stories like her stupid daughters are not helping her. Also it seems, while all politicians are like this, she is blatantly doing it for the money ie: quitting being a Governor to make millions in various media. Basically the IQ of the American voter is not that high, however this what I call the 'Carl Palidino' syndrome does not help the Republican cause. Any normal Republican would have defeated Andrew Cuomo (the annointed one).

Agreed with publicity stunt for more sympathy votes. Bristol will win Dancing with the Stars even though she dances worse than Elaine from Seinfeld.

Pure publicity stunt. If someone really wanted to kill this stupid little slut, there are better ways to do it. She probably had the package sent to herself so she can cry more fake tears and win more pity.

I blame Levi Johnston. I have no credible evidence or even an ounce of proof, but since it's TMZ I don't need it.
