    Bristol Palin's 'DWTS' Success: Right-Wing Conspiracy or Improved Dancer Who Deserves to Win?

    Yikes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And
    one angry viewer..........

    One Wisconsin man allegedly became so irate that the 20-year-old mom was still on the show that he fired his shotgun into the television, prompting a 15-hour standoff with Dane County officers on Monday evening.


    I've never watched Dancing with the stars, but if Bristol looks anything like her mom, perhaps I need to go back through my OnDemand Channel [​IMG]

    I'll admit I do watch the show. She has improved immensely since the first show, but no I don't think she deserves to be in the finals.

    IMO Bristol is a good dancer, but I agree with the judges that by her facial expressions she isn't "into" the dance. It's almost like she is lost in her head remembering the steps (which I'm sure I would be doing too!) Brandy, however, was much better because she could move AND she was able to get into her performance. Does Bristol deserve to win? Absolutely not. At this point Jennifer deserves the mirror ball... but it should have been a battle between Jennifer and Brandy.

    Just like American Idol, this is a popularity contest, not necessarily do the best ones win. If it really was all about talent, then that nasty screechy Fantasia wouldn't have even been in the final two, much less won American Idol. They need to lay off Bristol, sheesh! She's a kid, not some big threat to anything. Folks need to get a life and quit taking this stuff so seriously. Just astounding how asinine the entire uproar is. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    that's what I thought when I read this article. I'm not even a DWTS fan, just saw an adorable kid in an outfit and clicked on the story and went [​IMG]

    I think she has improved a lot since the beginning of the season.
    As for her facial expressions.. i think shes still a bit "shy" and feels akward on stage. She still dances pretty good though!

    Boyd! I'm shocked.............that you don't watch DWTS.

    Bristol looks like just a sweet little girl that got rocketed into public life because of politics. At least she chose to be on DWTS. Maybe the public has voted for her because they see how hard she has worked. Maybe they have voted for her because of her mom. Maybe the network is causing the controversy because it attracts more potential viewers (like you, Boyd). What ever it is, she is just a little girl that has learned to dance, and the sun will come up tomorrow no matter what you or I think about it....

    Wouldn't it be wonerful if this 20 year old woman suddenly brought to reality the fact that not everyone deserves a trophy or reward, just because they were on the field, and that honesty in voting is the only way to find out who really won.

    I must be livin under a broody cause I dont watch that show either. I have zero idea about who's on it.

    I do watch Chelsea Handler though, and she had that Tom Bergeron (a judge on DWTS, I think) on her show the other day. He said the reason Bristol is still there is "She is getting more votes than anyone else on the show". Guess thats a good enough reason for her to still be on, huh? [​IMG]
