Liberals always whine how intolerant conservatives are, but they are the most dangerosu when they don't see what they like ahppening, they should be tracked down & prosceuted as terrorist then given prison time. Liberals have way more hate than anyone on the right just look at their post.I could have cared less if Palin won because Gray was best, but now I am using ALL my votes for Palin no matter how bad she may be. Brandy got voted off because her partner Max is an ass period.

ok, if not " dancing with the stars " then what " dancing with the anybodys" its just a word a name ,with the past guests on the shows, it shows you dont have to be a star, of anything, just because it doesnt have the word " amature " in it you cant get over it ! huh damm people! are you the ones that if you dont see a sign on the road that tells you what and where to go you dont move? you have common sence dont you! so if you dont see a yield sign on the road and you know good and well you have to give way to the other car, would you not, just because a yield sign wasnt there ? your unbelieveable, how ignorant people are, and always have been

Just to think, this is the same chick that said Levi was too caught up in the fame in order to be a father. Oh the irony is unbelievable.

There is a reason that Liberals are referred to as the Hatefilled Left. I'm glad that I don't live in your dark, nasty and hatefilled world.

Too bad that it has come to tricks such as this but if the judges weren't so damned incompetant by giving Palin jacked up scores to keep it close there wouldn't be so much outrage. Bristol Palin should have be eliminated by week four, PERIOD. If it is the power of politics then everyone should remember this crap and vote Mama Bear out of whatever office she is running for.

liberals are creepy. What a bunch of insane people. Attacking someone because of who their parents are is really dumb. But, then look who we are dealing with.

I can't believe Bristol hasn't lost any weight after all this dancing. She needs to try harder because she really sucks.

Obviously the gay judges of DWTS don't give Bristol the marks she should get because she's homophobic. The people give her higher marks because most of them are not gay. Even though she is fat an ugly she is the best dancer and performer since Elvis Presley.

go home!    

This is not a publicity stunt. I have heard that Bristol and Mark are allegedly getting death threats. This shows how pathetic people have become, when they get so caught up in a television show and show such hatred towards a young, single mom just because you dont like her mother's political views. Really? Turn the channel and don't vote for Sarah Palin when it's election time (if she does run). In the meantime, why not use the rest of your venom and anger and turn it into something positive like volunteering for the homeless or children with cancer. Actually, i take that back. Please commit yourself to a mental institution instead. And get a life.

It is sad what we as parents do to our children. Brain wash that they are the best at anything, they have to work hard and some just do not have it. Dancing is not for everybody, we all move around the floor but to dance professionally is for professionals. Down deep Bristol has to know that she just does not have it!!!! It is sad what this USA is doing, we are a poor example for other countries!!!

Some of you are acting like this is funny? This is totally unnecessary. Threatening someone over semi-bad dancing? That's just ridiculous. Bristol should win just to make them feel like **** for it.
