.... "Dirty Dancing" star Jennifer Grey! Here's a recap of how tonight's show went down:
The 11th season finale of "Dancing with the Stars" began with a dance routine featuring all but two of this season's competitors - Michael Bolton had a concert in London, while Audrina Patridge came down with a mystery illness.
After a quick run-through of what happened on last night's show, host Tom Bergeron brought out Jennifer Grey, who admitted that she ruptured a disc Monday night, but would try to complete the finale's two required dances.
The first round of dancing involved the favorite ballroom dance of the competitors, with the three judges deciding who's best on a 10-9-8 scoring system. Kyle Massey delivered a fiery tango that drove the crowd into a frenzy and pleased the panel. Bristol Palin also went the tango route, once again channeling her inner air guitarist to the delight of the audience. Len Goodman noted that while Kyle had the "wow," Bristol had the "how." Is that a compliment or an enigma wrapped in a riddle?
Jennifer then attempted a waltz, bad disc and all. She appeared to hold her own, despite a possible stumble midway through her routine. Nevertheless, the dance made "Activia Woman" happy, and that's what counts. In the end, the judges gave Jennifer perfect 10s. Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli each gave Kyle 9s, while Len awarded Bristol a 9.
The final dance was a cha-cha performed to the Pink tune, "Raise Your Glass." Kyle danced first, followed by Jennifer and Bristol.
But before the cha-cha, it was time for a song-and-dance by German pop legend David Hasselhoff, who sounded quite tone deaf behind the mike. Germans may know beer, but pop music? Not so much.
Kurt Warner and Rick Fox then faced off in a routine set to Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger." (Did anyone else think Kurt's shirt looked like something he bought at a "Mork and Mindy" estate sale?) Margaret Cho and Florence Henderson came out to boogie to "Copacabana."
Then we had a "Situation" on stage, as Mike Sorrentino basically walked around and flirted with three female dancers. In the audience, Mary Hart was impressed, at least. Brandy, who some thought would skip the finale after last week's surprise elimination, showed up to perform a quickstep to the "Friends" theme.
Now we get to the final dances of the season or, in Len's words, "the brawl for the Mirrorball." First up was Kyle, who got the crowd going with a high-energy cha-cha. Jennifer came out, showing no issue with the ruptured disc she talked about earlier. Bristol was the last competitor out, and she appeared to hold her own as well. But what did the judges think of these dueling cha-chas?
Bruno called Jennifer's dance "perfection," adding that Bristol "saved the best for last." And according to Carrie Ann: Kyle is joy, Bristol is hope and Jennifer is perseverance. "Dancing with the Stars" is not just a show, it's one big motivational speech. In the end, Kyle and Jennifer each got 28 points, both getting 10s from Bruno, while Bristol earned 27 points.
It's now time to pick a winner and runners-up: First up, was the third-place finisher, Bristol Palin. Bristol said she was grateful for the experience, and Tom Bergeron saluted her for making it so far in the competition. Meanwhile, America searches for something new to get frustrated about.
Finally, we have a winner, and it's Jennifer Grey, who seemingly took control of the competition in the final weeks and never looked back. And for professional dancer Derek Hough, it's his third victory on the show, previously taking Nicole Scherzinger and Brooke Burke to the Mirrorball Trophy.
What did you think of the "Dancing with the Stars" finale? Did the right competitor win?
Somebody essentially help to make seriously articles I would state. That is the first time I frequented your web page and up to now? I amazed with the analysis you made to create this actual post extraordinary. Excellent activity!
I think that is among the so much important information for me. And i'm happy reading your article. However want to statement on few common things, The website taste is ideal, the articles is in point of fact nice : D. Just right activity, cheers
Hi there, I found your web site by means of Google at the same time as looking for a related topic, your website got here up, it seems to be great. I have added to favourites|added to my bookmarks.
I do agree with all the ideas you've introduced for your post. They're very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very quick for beginners. May you please lengthen them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.
I have been exploring for a bit for any high quality articles or blog posts in this sort of area . Exploring in Yahoo I finally stumbled upon this website. Studying this info So i'm happy to express that I've an incredibly excellent uncanny feeling I discovered just what I needed. I such a lot no doubt will make sure to don?t omit this website and give it a glance regularly.
Hi, i believe that i saw you visited my web site so i got here to return the prefer?.I am trying to to find issues to enhance my web site!I suppose its good enough to use a few of your ideas!!
Dwts or american idol, what's the difference.they vote the same way.
Thank goodness Bristol did not win and the right ones did...although I think Brandy should have been in Bristols place at the finale!Even on the last dances of the night Bristol was not dancing just waiting for the steps ...put your arm this way and your leg that way kind of robotic.
Have you ever wondered why Sarah Palins Alaska was on close to the DWTS show...I think it was to show or try to show Bristol in a new light and make people either feel sorry for her or just to make her appear more vunerable to get more votes!And also there are million of 16 and 17 year olds that get pregnant each year..but do they get to go out on speaking engagements and make millions of dollars (with mamas endorsements)
Even when Brandy was elimanated you didn't see shock on Bristols face ( she knew she was going to win) and the judges brought much harsher criticism to the other dancers and not much to her(I am sure out of respect to Mama Palin).So glad the drama of the Palins is over!!!! Good riddance!
You are either too young to remember, or perhaps too old.....but when she was 13, Rush Limbaugh called Chelsea Clinton "the White House dog". John McCain called her ugly when she was 18. So what is your point? Fame brings out the worst in people and the Palin's will have to learn to take it like everyone else.
No, they're to flipping outright hypocritical. They can certainly dish it out but when it comes to taking it, it's 'do as I say and not as I do'.
A 'practice vote' for 2012? Isn't that just special? You see how that turned out, didn't you?
@Rob–Yeah, Ayers was a dbag too. What's your point?
'United Socialist State'? Hey that's pretty funny too. Do you mean 'Socialist' in the sense that I have to pay MY tax dollars to foot the bill for per child tax credits for EVERYONE ELSE'S CHILDREN? Tell me please..who's leaching off of who?
I started watching the show DWTS only when i found out that Bristol was one of the contestants...out of curiosity. The very first time i saw Bristol danced, i said to myself she won't last long. I've started liking the show as i enjoyed the other good dancers. However, i realized the show has been doing the eliminations one by one except Bristol who has been very dull in her moves (plus all the missteps and wrong timings). I started to wonder how a bad dancer like her could stay when all the other better dancers get eliminated before her...i started to doubt the show's credibility. My disappointment with the show and the voting system grew bigger and bigger, especially that week when Brandy was eliminated (leaving Bristol with Kyle and Jennifer)...very unbelievable!!!!! Having Bristol as one of the three finalists is just a huge BS...when she should have been gone several weeks ago!!!! I know in my heart Bristol knows she does NOT deserve the honor at all. I said to myself...i won't allow this phony show to fool me (and am sure that's how many other viewers feel, too). I stopped watching the show, and does not intend to even peek during the shows. I'd rather spend my precious time watching other shows, which will provide me with genuine fun and entertainment. I lost my trust with the voting system, the judges and the show as a whole.
Bristol is hot – Chelsea is not, can't wait for Sarah to win in 2012. DWTS was just practice voting – wait for 2012.
Bristol is hot – Chelsea is not, can't wait for Sarah to win in 2012. This was just some practice voting – wait for 2012.
The Palins are all about "The Win".
Actually having the ability to do the thing that they are competing for isn't necessary to them. Bristol couldn't dance and Sarah couldn't govern Alaska.
No Problem! She really wasn't interested in doing the job anyway. The only thing that counts is WINNING!
Sarah thinks she wants to win the presidency now.
She doesn't even consider what the job would be like if she got in.... G-d help us.
Bristol Palins comments ( winning would mean giving the finger to people who hate her and her mom). Real class, right. I am not surprised. These comments are comments made by low class trash. I don't care how much money you make, the Palins perception is that of a bunch of ignoramous hillbillies. These are the people who want to represent the American people? No one in politics that I can recall whose aspiration to run for president has ever behaved like these people. You can say what you want about Obama's politics, but you have NEVER heard them say or behave in this way. If you have prove it>
Glad Jennifer won, and we triumphed over the Palins! Too bad Bristol had to be used by program and network and her fans in all this mess.
Just clarification on article: first dance last night. Jennifer did not receive perfect 10s. The three were ranked, with top getting 10, second 9, third 8. That is a very different statement and loses the implication that Jen did not deserve perfect scores.
When defending her "right" to be in the finals Bristol referred to the "haters out there" as those "attacking her".
They weren't "haters" Bristol – they were simply telling you the truth that although you progressed technically and we all saw and were happy at the personal growth (maturing a little) – you were not at the level of several of those "the voters" dismissed before you and given your consistently LOWER scores – how is it that YOU did not know you were not at their level? Why blame "haters" – WHEN FOR THE MOST PART – no one was "hating' you progress either in dancing skills OR your maturing right before our eyes.
Time to start viewing things through a different "filter" Bristol and that means developing your own – not your mother's (no disrespect intended but that is as it IS)
I was happy that Jennifer and Derek won; their dances were beautiful, packed with all sorts of different moves, and Jennifer held her own with Derek and didn't just let him handle all the smooth moves like some did. I absolutely loved their free style dance to music from dirty dancing.....that was great and her waltz fabulous – she has such good lines with her legs and a lot of grace and her Pasa Doble was so much better than her first one.
Someone said they didn't think Sarah was there to watch Bristol but I really thought I saw her in the audience. No matter. Bristol came a long way from not knowing how to dance a step to the last performances; she might have scored better if their free-style hadn't been to a song strongly associated with Bob Fosse's choreography; that was a little ambitious especially for someone still in the throes of learning to dance. She improved greatly over the course of the season and I was glad she got some recognition for that; and no, I am not a Palin fan – far from it, but doing all that was hard work and all the stars that did it get my admiration for sticking it out as long as they did. I think Dancing with the Stars ought to have a second sort of prize for people like Bristol and the sports guys who were so out of their element trying to dance – Most Improved Dancer. It would be interesting to see who the judges would have picked for it. I was just sorry when Rick Fox and Curt of football fame got cut – they had both just performed their best dance too when they were cut. They added a lot to the show and were such gentlemen – very very classy.
So what is Bristol moniker (a la "The Situation")? "The Hypocrite"? "The Cautionary Tale"? "The Tea Bagger Puppet"? "The Unwilling Daughter"?
I guess this showed the Plain Republicans and the Tea Party that the American public made the right choice. The Best Women won.
I think Palin is crazy. Let her go ahead & run 4 President that will just make it much easier 4 Obama 2 get reelected.
Bristol palin is not or will ever be a star. The only reason she was on the show was because of her loud mouth, attention seeking mother. It was all about the ratings and making money which dancing with the stars got and did. Politics, Politics,
Politics. You keep on praying bristol, and please don't use your middle finger no more. god dosn't like it when little girls do that. amen.
Next season Chelsea Clinton.
If any tv executive ever puts bristol palin back on tv, he or she should have there brains examined!
I lost some sympathy 4 Bristol when she started talking about the "haters";---Did it ever occur to her that-very simply-she was glaringly just not as good as several who went home. THAT's why so many became frustrated with her staying at the expense of others who obviously were better. That simple.
i didn't care who won, as long as it wasn't palin!! she sucked!!! can't believe she made it to 3rd place!! and i was grossed out by sarah palin's face!! uggghhh
For all the people saying Bristol is not a star, how many people had ever heard of Kyle Massey before this show? Like it or not when 90% of the country knows you by name you become a celebrity by default.
Bristol is ok as a contestant... pretty with a great smile, but as a dancer in a very popular show contest, she was found wanting. I don't think it was hate, Bristol baby, you just don't have it in you as a great dancer!
Jennifer is essentially a professional dancer and should not have been there in the first place. Bristol was the class of the show and the response of the "haters" proves it
I started to tune in but when I realized there was a dog show on channel 58, I had to choose the more intellectually stimulating program.
The schnauzer won.
I think it was totally unfair to include ms Grey in this group. She was a ringer. She was already a pro dancer and waS picked to win from the start, Just out of fun I was voting for Bristol but kyle and lacy should have won. He showed the most progress. I will probably not ever watch another season again.
PLEASE PRINT MY COMMENT WHO CARE IF I SAID IT BEFORE IT THE TRUTH,BLACK DO NOT WIN ON DANCING WITH THE
I keep saying black don't win on dancing with the stars. So what it's the truth.
501 comments? Really?! I'm not going to say anything negative because I didn't even watch the show this season. However, I don't believe Bristol Palin was a good enough dancer to stay on the show all the way to the finals. I do agree with whoever stated that just because Jennifer Grey had some dance training for her role in 'Dirty Dancing', that does not in any way make her a professional dancer. I was on the dance team in high school and I can dance decently but I am definitely not even close to a professional. I have nothing personal against Bristol Palin and I really shouldn't even say anything because I didn't watch the show.
The best dancer won, and that's the way it should be. It would have been hard to choose between Jennifer and Brandy. Both were great. Kyle was a fabulous entertainer. All 3 deserved to win. Palin should have been gone in the 3rd week.
I keep saying black don't win on dancing with the stars.
People, don't trash Jennifer Grey winning because she may have had some dance in her background. Most stars have at one time or another. Bristol is not a start. She is the daughter of an over inflated politician.
Ok, I'd like to see George Cloony dance on this show!
Nobody wants to bring up McCain. The Palins are alllllllll McCain's fault!!
ahww..finally an article with recaps from the show and posting on the winner...Congrats to both..her performance was great and trully she deserved to be the winner.
new posting today on Kelly Preston and John Travolta: http://babycelebs411.com/2010/11/24/john-travolta-and-wife-kelly-preston-welcome-son-benjamin/. lots of celebs predictions on our celebs911 page.
It's funny how nobody in this family can win anything regardless of what they are up against. Beauty contest, vice presidency (except that God's will was for her to lose) and now her fat daughter loses again.
How's that dancy, shaky ridiculousnesy workin' for ya',
am surprised that grizzlie baby did not win it
too busy with dance partner and forgot to focus that dance is in fact about talent and not about making babies
Well, I for one, was soooo tired of hearing about Jennifer's injuries! GET OVER IT ALREADY! i think she wanted to constantly remind of us it, incase she did mess up she could blame it on her injuries. I don't remember hearing anyone else complaining of their booboos! Also, did anyone else think Jennifer was acting "silly" at times! I agree that she was the better dancer, but she really GOT ON MY NERVES! Glad it's over!
You should realize (instead of focusing on YOU – that Jennifer is 50 – and those cameras were recording little moments between HER and HER TEACHER not a photo-op planned scenario!! It is the PRODUCERS of the show that put all those sequences together "for effect".
Geez woman – when was the last time YOU got out there and practiced ANYTHING physically (especially at 40 plus when aches and pains start to kick in) FOR SIX WEEKS? Let's put the camera on you and see how much YOU complain!
Palin 3rd place. Too funny..........She may have won if she lost 20 pounds and got a new face.
I wrote abc when they chose Bristol as a contestent in a eledtion year knowing they would be showing sarah on clips of dwts. Great free advertising for the rep ( btw i have voted both sides of the aisle voted for reagan voted for perot when clinton ran ) after watching all other episodes of dwts did not watch one show this year to political orientated for me . I am sorry Bristol did so poorly evidently in dancing she is as talented as her mom is in knowledge,
How incredibly STUPID and partisan-blinded some of those commenting are!
Grey is 50 and learned __ONE DANCE__ for "Dirty Dancing" all those decades ago and you want to say she was a "ringer" compared with Bristol?? Not....
The very worst thing that could have happened for Bristol is to have won – BECAUSE – if carried along by partisan voters she would be taught that doing the right thing (voting a better dancer the trophy much less voted Bristol off earlier) was not important as long as partisan-based-goals were accomplished – PLUS – she would have had to contend with knowing that most of the country viewed her "victory" as won but NOT EARNED!
Bristol deserves all the credit in the world for jumping in her truck and "giving it a go". She grew in maturity as well as physical dance skills. Both will serve her the rest of her life. But sadly not even SHE seemed to fathom that she was NOT as good as several of those who were voted off before her – obviously by fans of her mother and as if trying to send Sarah a message that all that support was going to be out there if she runs for President.
And on that matter – no comment. Don't want to take any credit away from Bristol that is due on her own merits and growth on the program.
Glad it wasn't Palin.
Jennifer Grey looks AMAZING for her age. Anyone else agree?
MAYBE SHE SHOU;D GO BACK TO ALASKA HIBERNATE FOR 6 MOUNTHS AND MAYBE SHE COULD SHAKE HER UGLYNESS
WOW! The CHICAGO WOLVES ACCUATLY WON! lol...
OK lets remember that this is an entertainment show not an election LOL. A little introspection here... how many of us could survive much less be successful on the show. I am no Palin fan but I gotta give that young girl kuddos for putting her heart into this (in spite of her whack job mother).
Personally glad Jennifer won (memories of dirty dancing - ahhh) though i wish she could have had a back to back with Brandy. All in all a fun year.
It seems like so many people posting don't understand – there are those of us who just want to see great dancing. And we want to see the best dancer win, and the best dancers stick around. Whether you judge that by the best dancer (Jennifer) or the most improved (Kyle), you want to see the best. I believe that's the point of the show. I don't care about politics or favoritism – in this realm. I do pay attention to politics, just not on DWTS. I don't want to see someone win the biggest prize who couldn't even get one single 10 on the entire season. That, to me, doesn't deserve to take home the trophy. It has nothing to do with liking or disliking her – it's about who deserves to win. That is what is frustrating to many of us – is the politics being encouraged.
Fun to watch and Bristol held her own.
HOORAY for Jennifer!! Once and for all why not the best?
Kyle was a delight to watch and I will follow his career.
Bristol–have to tell you chick no one hates you–you haven't done anything for people to hate you about. Do something with your life and then we'll decide.
Now it's just the next Bristol attention moment waiting to happen. Maybe she'll remember she's a mom and concentrate on being one.
Well we were spared the big middle finger baby Grizzly said she would give everyone if she won. Is baby grizzly having another cub? She looks like she is ready to drop one.
Congrats to Jennifer Grey!!! You certainly earned the win; your dancing was excellant!!
People including those at CNN that think Sarah Palin said I can see Russia from my house are COMPLETE IDIOTS,she never said that try Tina Fey on SNL.Why don't you try this one Barack Obama said I can see Kenya from the White House.
Everyone is being ridiculous about Dancing with the Stars. The tea party DID NOT help Bristol Palin make it to the finals of Dancing with the Stars. Dancing with the Stars is a reality TV show about dancing, not politics. Maybe Bristol should not have been in the finals, but that's what happened and that's the way people voted. Bristol is not a performer or athlete. She is the daughter of a politician. If anyone wanted to see a normal, every day person on Dancing with the Stars then take a look. She was truly an underdog and I commend her efforts.
The scary thing is the story of how the producers are convinced they need controversy to keep the ratings up and the franchise alive well into the future. Now we are being told the Teawitch is being marketed by Sarah the Palin for season 12??? God help us. If they could create a show for non-ice skaters, how about Dancing with the Has Been Politicians? Lots of fodder there to choose from.
Well, I'm a Liberal Momma Palin hater, but I though Bristol did pretty well. She really grew though out the season.
I'll say! At least 30 pounds worth, in my opinion. once she escaped from the "Perfect Mother", she really chowed down on the food presented to the contestants!
Thank God no more Palin!
All of you realize that allowing Palin to get as far as she did got a lot of media attention for the show. Then they make sure that she wouldnt go any farther by not using votes to keep her on the show.
What the show did was capitalize on the attention Palin got, as many people tuned in just to see if she would win or not. Clever marketing is what i think.
First of all, Jennifer is a good dancer and we all expected her to win. She was a pro from Dirty Dancing. But what’s with all the negativity toward Bristol? You guys VOTED her to third place! She beat every other dancer there except Kyle and Jennifer, despite not having much exposer and despite not knowing how to shake her booty. You all need to stop tearing her down!
well " izzy" hate to tell you but my husband has 3 herniated discs and works in construction, people's pain tolerance varies.. as we all know, and dont be a hater because the person you wanted to win, didnt.
Can't dance, can't act, but I don't blame this family for playing you suckers for all they can get. I would too, if you are stupid enough to go along with these idiots. Their 15 mins will be up in 2012 when she lose another election.
Kinda dumb for anyone that did not watch the show, make any comments here at all.

THANK GOD, BRISTOLS GONE! I WAS SERIOUSLY NEVER GOING TO WATCH THIS SHOW IF SHE HAD WON. BRANDY GOT JIPPED THOUGH, IT WOULD'VE BEEN A MORE INTERESTING SHOW IF THE FINAL TWO WAS BETWEEN BRANDY AND JENNIFER. THOSE TWO HAD TALENT, KYLE WAS OK FOR A CHUBBY KID BUT BRISTOL, LMAO, NO COMMENT! I'M GLAD JENNIFER WON, IT WAS WELL-DESERVED BUT BRANDY WOULD'VE PROBABLY BEAT HER IF SHE WAS IN THE FINALE!
A star is someone the public has viewed in their chosen profession, someone who is known to the public as an achiever. It was embarrassing for America to have Bristol on this show, equally embarrassing was the willingness of the born again fringe to vote for her despite her lack of talent. Dancing with the stars may not survive this Mama's tart.
"True American patriot? A-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You are another shining example of just how dumb Palin leg humpers have become."
Sure thing, chief.. say, how's that "Yes We Can!" chant working out for you lately?
There is NO way Jennifer whatshername danced with a ruptured disc. NO WAY, I DON'T CARE WHAT SHE STATED OR WHAT IS BEING REPORTED. Four years ago I suffered 3 herniated discs and it was the most UNGODLY pain I had ever experienced in my life. And these discs were herniated NOT ruptured. A ruptured disc is an emergency surgery situation and you would NOT be out there dancing. She may have pulled a muscle from the dancing but NOT dancing with a disc ruptured in her back.
Come on, use some common sense when reporting something; just because she is who she is doesn't give her super-human strength or an unbelievable pain threshold where she wouldn't feel the pain or just pop a couple Tylenol and hit the dance floor.
Bristol won hands down against two professional's...great show Bristol ...don't worry about bleeding heart liberals and pathetic XX33@@ hole barb bush who try to turn everything political!!!!!
What is all the fuss? The best dancers won, and it wasn't due to or in defiance of any Tea Party conspiracy. I am simply amazed by all the hateful rhetoric on this blog against Bristol Palin and the Tea Party. Just because Bristol Palin was one of the contestants, people assumed all sorts of political motivations and conspiracies. Bristol is not running for any office. She's not worldly; she's a 19 year old teenage girl from Alaska. Imagine youself in the same situation. What would you do? How would you feel? With only 19 years of experience in the world, how could one possibly have the maturity to react any better or differently to some of the unbelievably hateful and cruel things that Bristol experienced? My God, this was just a television DANCING SHOW! So congratulations to the talented and deserving winners! Jennifer Gray was AMAZING. Kyle Massey was so much fun to watch and came across as a genuine and likable guy. And Bristol did her best, all things considered. Anyway, it was a fun season and I'm looking forward to the next.
I don't get the utter hatred you libs have for the Palins or the Tea Party or any other AMERICANS. Last I checked we as Americans should be sticking together not ripping each other apart. Stop buying in to the BS the far left and far right spew. 80 percent of us think about the same on most subjects. By the way the show is supposed to be for non professional dancers. Grey shouldn't have even been on the show and it would have been nice if Kyle had won. Brystal got better every week but didn't deserve to win.
Never watched this stupid show, but thank God this S### is over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You do realize if you didn't like the show, it makes no sense to comment on an article about the show. What difference should it make to you that the show is still running or is over? You are probably as dumb as you make yourself out to be with that comment.
Next season — Amy Carter — YEAH!
I'd rather see Amy Fisher :)
I AM AO GLAD THAT JENNIFER AND DERIK WON. DERIK CAN MAKE ANY PARTNER LOOK GOOD. THW WHOLE TIME THAT I WATCH THEM DANCE ALL I COULD THINK ABOUT WAS DIRTY DANCING AND BABY. FOR BEING 50 SHE LOOKS BETTER TJAN A 25.
Here's the deal. Just because someone makes a comment about Palin, doesn't mean that said person is not interested in or concerned about more important world events. For example, I'm paying attention to what North Korea is up to and our (as in, the U.S.'s) potential responses. At the same time, I like to know the latest news in the NFL, and how some fatty who got knocked up at 17 could possibly be considered a spokesperson for abstinence or a celebrity. I also saw highlights of her "dancing" and wonder if she is pregnant again or just sneaking bacon cheeseburgers during the commercials.
I AM SO GLAD THAT JENNIFER AND DERIK WON. DERIK CAN MAKE ANY PARTNER LOOK GOOD. THE WHOLE TIME I WATCH SEASON 11 I THOUGHT ABOUT DIRTY DANCING AND BABY
Oh my gosh. You people need to get a life. If a stupid dancing show gets you this riled up no wonder relationships are failing in America and the economy is in the toilet. Get a life people. All of the dancers are just people. Nothing more, nothing less. Non of them run the country. They just danced and not very well if you ask me. No one danced from the heart. all mechanical.
You small minded ... petty ... nasty ... condescending ... Palin bashers make me sick. The children of politicans should be off limits, After all, opponents of the left have the decency to treat the precious Obama children with respect, even though their father is destroying America, and their mother is telling America to tighten their belts, while she is gorging herself with lobster.
No surprises here – Jennifer Grey was slated to win and Bristol Palin was slated to keep people viewing the show. No surprises in the comments, either, the "anti-Palin" crowd vs the "Palin worshippers" – making all things a political statement and showing nothing but contempt for each other. In truth, the show is always fixed, and it was only the viewers that kept Bristol in to capture the #3 spot. She was neither the best nor the worst dancer, she showed commitment and the ability to improve, but had she been anybody else she would have been voted out a couple weeks ago. Sarah Palin has told DWTS producers to put Christine O'Donnell in the next line up, so there will be a new controversy for people to focus on, if Palin gets her way. Why not? Sensationalism makes for good tv, not facts or truth, not reality, not integrity. Sensationalism.
*****NEWS FLASH ****** Bristol Palin wins DWTS by voter landslide. Senior staff and consult with police investigators and Palin representatives and decide to change final vote to protect Bristol Palin. Full story at http://ur.a.lsr.com.
wow this much flack over a stupid azz dance show that they dont even win anything and racist y cause brandi got booted (typical) and the blacks say us white ppl keep racism alive let it go that was how many yrs ago and besides we have a black prez now so stfu blackies just cause ur precious brandi didnt win
Horrible just Horrible. Got Sin?
If there hadn't been a "political" vote, the final 3 best dancers would have been Jennifer, the cute black guy, and Brandy. It was amazing Bristol didn't seem to lose any weight during all of this. Brandy was a beautiful dancer and it was soooo unfair when she was booted off. Bristol was rather immature acting in wanting to give the finger to all those who "hate her mother and her."
Jennifer is the worst champion yet. Whined all season about her ailments. But when she danced there was no evidience. Plus she had trainining prior wereas palin did not.
Also, why does derick alway get contenders to dance with and never pretenders?
I agree. I want him to get stuck with someone like Margaret Cho next time and see how well he does!
"I think you should know I have a scorching case of herpes."
As everyone has said, this is "Dancing With Stars". Get back to having "real" stars on.
This is suppose to be a dancing contest not a political forum. If Bristol thinks she is in the same category as Jennifer she is in the same dream w/her mother wanting to be president. The show itself did not make this a political forum the voters did. Bristol keeps saying that it has to with people not liking her mother, no, it has to do w/the fact that she can't dance. She needs to look at the tapes of the show. Does this mean for the rest of her life she will be using her mother as excuse for everything, get over it, you just can't dance. Maybe she should have thought of her mother before she got pregnant. Didn't hear Brandy whining about getting kicked off the show or anyone else. Get over yourself, your not a dancer.
If DWTS wants ratings, get Anna Chapman , the red hot Russian spy. She will set your ratings on fire.
If Anna Chaplin the Russian spy was on the show, she would have the votes of each and every Democrat, that is a fact.
Compare that to the majority of Democrats in America who wish death to Bristol Palin because her mom is a Republican.
DWTS has thousands of death threats by Democrats all week. You support the desire and or action of killing your fellow Americans because of their politics with each Democrat vote, since almost every Democrat in America wants their right of center neighbors killed, this is an undeniable fact. If it weren't so, DWTS wouldn't have needed all that security due to hateful libs.
The winner is Kyle. The preferences were disparage , volatile. Best performer was Kyle. Yessssssssss. Bristol and her partner were disastrous. Grey received the trophy . But she is not the winner.
gosh folks bristol is a star. she got a gold star for being such a successful teen active.
Bristol was good for DWTS ratings. I look forward to next season and wish for them to invite Chicago Governor Rod Blagoevich. This would be a blast!!! It's all entertainment!!!
I is a pastrybutt. I luvz mah countree so much that I want to see some dumba$$es like the Palins running it. Thens AH can be the merkin I allas wanted to be.
(Patriotism might also mean you don't WANT to see your country fail.)
Bunch of idiots.
So Bristol should have turned down an opportunity to better her and her son's lives because she wasn't a star? The negative comments about her and her weight are ignorant. Is Kyle slim and trim? Congratulations to Jennifer.
Teen Activist, is that short for Hot Dog on a Stick worker... lol,
gosh folks bristol is a star. lets give her a big gold star for being a successful teen active.
puke....could a bigger "Drama Queen" have won. I wanted her to lose just because she was sooooooo annoying!!
And this is news?
And you are an idiot?
Bristol Palin looks bloated and she has more chin than a Chinese phone book.
What a comment to make::nothing more than a racist. Shame on you.
I'm happy Jennifer and Derek won, but i still don't get it why there is so much hate toward Bristol... Come on guys, if some producer called me to be on DWTS, why would'nt i want to go? Why must she be demonized because she's the daughter of a politician? Why why why? It's all just a show!!!
Too bad Simon Cowell isn't judging this horrible show. He would have had Bristol crying with his honest and blunt criticism of her horrendous dancing and off the show real early. As he wasn't on the show, these terrible judges kept sugar-coating their assessments of her "dancing" which helped to keep the train wreck on for more ratings.
Yea Jennifer! Happy for her.
We have no control over who is going to be on the show-so love it or hate it, watch it or don't. Enjoy life people, there is no use getting so upset about dtws. it's not the end of the world. Same thing could be said for when the one I wanted to win, didn't (mel). again-life goes on.
Bristol or Kyle should have won. Jennifer first of all had experience with Dirty Dancing, no matter what you Americans say. She does not come across as being "real" and far too "whiney" about her aches and pains. Granted Bristol is not a "star" as in a Holywood star but she is in my eyes a beautiful girl inside and out and the press were very hard on her. Then again what do you expect::that's the US.
Bristol cannot help who she is and she does't seem at all comfortable in the spotlight. She is not a star but she is a "star's" daughter. We would have no clue about who she is were it not for her "star" mother. Her only personal claim to fame (if it can be called that) is being an unwed mother. I don't like the whole situation as it relates to DWTS but it is what it is. Cut the kid a break. She kept Mama in the public eye much more than she deserved to be.
It was plain to see that Bristol Palen had no business dancing in the finals of the show. The sponsors probably thought her presence would boost the show's ratings, which it probably did. But the judges perjured themselves in their adulation of her. It was absurd! It's unfortunate that another dance team was denied a chance in the finals because some idiot thought it better to let big-rump Palen "steal" a spot because of "political" reasons.
I think KYLE SHOULD HAVE WON!!!!! Jennifer has a dancing experience already. Kyle came without any single experience and did fantastic. This was planned by kicking Brandy out of the show and keeping Bristol to be on the final and Jen to win. This is really a dirty game and pprejudice. So long for this show. You have done it to Mya, Giles and Brandy
It was so obvious she was going to win, the judges did everything they could to ensure the 'fairy tale ending' the producers wanted. Pathetic.
I appauld Bristol for trying. She was thrust into the spotlight and did her best. For such a young woman with NO acting skills & NO dancing background, she did great. I believe the viewers kept her in the game because she tried and was not like all the rest. Shame on all of you who have such unkind words for her. She is an average American Girl, she does not have the body of an actresss or a dancer. Why such hostility? What is wrong with you? Why so much HATE? Are your lives that shallow? I feel sorry for you.
Jennifer did a great job. Several of the posts I read from previous weeks were unkind about Jennifer, too–they voiced their opinions that they were sick & tired of the weekly drama of her pain & injuries. She is 50 years old and her body took alot of punishment. With a ruptured disc, I f do not know if it was the wisest thing to jepardize her health...show or no show. I know alot of performers push past the pain but based on her advanced age (compared to those in their 20's, 30's or 40's) she took a huge risk. With spinal and disc injuries, one has to be very careful. She gave it her all and I hope it was worth it.
KIyle had improved so much during the course of the show. He is such a performer! He came so close to getting the mirror ball trophy.
When all is said and done, putting bias, hatred and name calling aside, I applaud everyone who signed on for the show and came back week after week with their grueling schedules and perform so well. They are all winners in my book! We are so ready to put others down, we need to remember not to judge ANYONE (whether it is a game show, an actor, politican or our neighbors) until we walk (or dance) a mile in their shoes!
i am glad that it finally came down to the best dancer and not who had the most votes. Hard work should be recognized. Bristol Palin should have been eliminated a long time ago based on her performance. Keeping her on led to her getting a bigger paycheck for her and it made her feel like she deserved to win although she was not the best dancer. We should not give people fasle positive feedback. The voting system is flawed. Political grandstanding should not be allowed. Now it is time for Bristol Palin to get a real job and be a hands on Mother.
I AM JUST GLAD SHE DID NOT WIN! SHE IS NOT A CELEB, SHE NEEDS TO LOSE WEIGH FACE IS JUST TO FAT-WELL IF I DIDN'T HAVE A DAILY JOB ALL I DID WAS STAY AT HOME WITH MOTHER DEAREST AND EAT ALL DAY-WHAT IS HER JOB IF ANY ANYWAY-WHAT DO SHE DO? AND DAD IS A HOUSE HUSBAND WAITING TO TRY & GET INTO THE WH,TO DO WHAT SINCE SARAH IS THE BREAD WINNER-KNOWING HE FEELS LEFT OUT OF EVERYTHING-WHAT IS HIS ROLE-SO FAR NOTHING",SARAH RUNS THE HOUSE HOLD-I GUESS HE DOESN'T NEED A JOB SINCE WIFFE IS TELLING HIM WHAT TO DO-AND LIVING OFF HER MONEY WHAT A SUCKER-ALL SARAH WANTS IS TO GET RICHER OFF TAXPAYERS MONEY-SHE IS NOT WORTH THE TIME NEEDS TO GET BACK INTO SCHOOL AND GET A DEGREE OR SOMETHING=NEITHER DAUGHTER OR MOM HAS A DEGREE ON ANYTHING-NEED TO READ AND COMPREHEND IF SHE THINKS SHE CAN BEAT PRESIDENT OBAMA-SHE WILL NEVER BE PRES-SHE KNOWS NOTHING FOR WE WOULD BE IN A MESS-FOR WE WOULD BE BOMBED UP INTO ASHES,PALIN IS JUST NOT PRESIDENT MATERIAL OR ANYTHNG ELSEIN THE POLITCAL WORLD-JUST IN HER WORLD==SAD"
Want to see a great dance movie? Watch "They Shoot Horses Don't They"
That just comes to show that nobody puts Baby in the corner.
BRAVO!! American got it right. I voted for the first time...as did alot of my friends. If scammer palin and her goons helped her win (which she has no talent) we would have never watche DWTS again. Go back to Alaska cry baby....and take dancing lessons....WOOHOOO....we beat out the scam american...applaud
Linda, I think you should take spelling lessons first::before you post a comment.
Bristol Palin is fat.
Palin was a joke. She was in it because mom was paying people to vote for her.
nah dude, once you get the evangelists hooked they pay YOU!!!! Hence her books and speaking tours. Use any priest driving a hummer and living in a million dollar home as a reference.
Bristol flopped around the stage like a fat fish out of water, much like her idiot mother trying to answer a difficult question like "what newspapers do you read?" when are htese tedious morons going to go away?
Izzy, you're dizzy. What is a good person, to you? A money-grubbing baby ho-bag? Yeah, we need people like the Palin's in office, to contribute even further to the dumbing down of America, because you, Izzy, can't do it ALL BY YOURSELF.
Why are people "haters" because they don't like fake phony thieving hobags? This rationalization only works for the stupid and shallow. Welcome, Izzy, you could be the next queen.
Bristol became the little engine that tried, Kyle, a powerhouse of energy but every move with Jenifer reminded us of a former dancer who returned to live her dream. And the memories that followed her. She glows inside and out, A true professional. She deserved it.
Just like her mother, Palin will whine and complain about losing and about the "haters" and about the media.... broken record just like her hag mother.
Hey, your in for more of the Palins. Mama Moose is aiming for First Woman Pres of USA!
Agree with Farhibide. Palins have no morals, just gold diggers. They put themselves in shame.
LOVE this show, but purposely refused to watch the finale. Hope others did as well and ratings suffered, if even only by a small margin. Wanted to send the message that I don't want "political figures" on the show. I'm not interested in furthering anyone's political agenda, and that is exactly what happened here. If Dancing puts politicians on again, daughters, cousins, their DOGS....I'm not watching.
And the surprise of her winning would be??? Nothing. From the minute they announced her competing pretty much everyone who watches the show knew she would win. It was a give-in. And probably the most boring season. Horrible voting, awful top-3. Didn't even watch the finals. *yawn*
What have the Palin's done to the U.S.? Dumbed it down about 90 percent!
Bristol never should have been on that show. She is NOT a "star", she is a chubby, whiny little girl who happens to be the child of the most obnoxious woman in America. The Palin's need to just go away before our collective IQ hits single digits.
Also, how is it that all dancers became more fit and trim the longer the season went, except for Bristol? How do she get even fatter in spite of the so-called strenuous practices and performances? She must have been on the 10,000 calories per day diet. Not to mention her public service announcement regarding teen pregancy. Isn't she the one who couldn't keep her legs closed?
Gawd let me off this planet, the less than mediocre are freaking suffocating me.
Hopscotch With the Stars! This week, we pit Kim "Tootie" Fields against "Some Guy Who Was on a Commercial Once."
WOW! You morons will watch it, won't you?
Is it just me or does Bristol look like Miss Piggy in this vid? Go Jennifer!!
Wow some of you people are truly petty, arrogant jerks.
I dislike Sarah Palin, yet found myself admiring Bristol. She has no natural grace at all, but put in the effort to overcome her lack of skill and lack of self-confidence every week. She didn't deserve to win, but she does deserve credit for radical improvement. Some of you are confusing the sins of the mother with the child.
Jennifer Grey deserved to win in the sense that she was the best dancer, but extensive training or not, having Joel Grey as your father helps in the genetics department.
Kyle was all effort all the time. He was my favorite and wish he would have won.
Jennifer Grey should have won hands down, and Bristol should not have been in the finals. I hear that mama Sarah is lobbying to get Christine O'Donnell on the show. Another tacky move by Palin. After the merciful end to this season's show brought on by Palin, the producers should be very wary of anything Palin promotes as it will only tarnish another season.
i am very upset she won, i hate her and wanted kyle to win becasue he was the best hands down, so "jen" u suck and u dont deserve it one bit.
Shouldn't Bristol be at home taking care of her child born out of wedlock? My guess is that she doesn't have too much experience being a mother, so she should be focused on that more than anything in her life.
There is nothing graceful about her, and it's a joke that she's been on this show as long as she has. And no, I am not a Democrat.
The best dancer won this season. To the comment about B Palin, it is true she was terrible and should have been eliminated earlier if not for the screwed up judging system that is only part proper dance adjudication, the rest being viewer opinion totally unrelated to dance and the shows own desire to create ratings from controversy. B.Palin also is not a star by any definition so should not have been on the show (maybe Sarah should have put her money where her big mouth is and danced herself since she can definately be considered a star, like her or not). Brandy should have made it to the finally. Also, having danced at all in your past, does not make you a professional dancer so Jennifer was righltfully there even if she was in a movie. For the record Patrick S., was a professional dancer and her teacher for the movie, so he couldn't compete even though he was also a star.
First, I am so sick and tired of people using the race card everytime an Afro-American doesn't win. I am caucasian and I love Kyle. He is a fresh, energetic, positive fun person who I think will really benefit from the DWTS experience. He came a long way but I voted for Jennifer because she is the better dancer. Plain & simple. Race was NOT a factor so quit using that card. It gets old and boring after a while. Second, all this political hub bub spoiled the show this year. The finals should have been Brandi & Jennifer & kyle dancing for the trophy. DWTS took advantage of the Palinites. I do give Bristol credit for staying out of the craziness and just dancing. Third, Jennifer dancer 30 years ago and was NOT a professional dancer so cut her some slack. At 50, she struggled with injuries and danced past them. Congratulations Jennifer. You added beauty & class to all your dances. You deserve to win. I think 5 perfect scores says it all.
Two words; "WHO CARES????"
This is just a tv show and no one should lose their life over it.
You could not have Bristol win. Thousand of Democrats were making death threats and one of them would have acted on it if she won.
These sick twisted hate filled idiots of intolerance and anger known as Democrats are the sickest people America has ever known. It is clear that a majority of Democrats today wish death to the Palin family and other Americans rights of center, if you have any decency and love in your heart you will vote against them for as long as you live. A Democrat vote is an endorsement for wishing death upon a 20 year old girl because you don't like her mothers politics.
The DWTS crew learned a valuable lesson about Democrats. The amount of security they needed because of hateful libs is a black eye on this nation.
Liberals do not hate Bristol or the palins. we dislike the constant focus and attention on palin and her family. a situation that Sarah has mentioned many times. if sarah can use her family to make a buck or to keep the media attention alive, that apparently is acceptable, but is not acceptable if Sarah cannot control or filter the coverage.
We do have a remote to switch the channel, I cann't wait for the Animal Planet show Palin's dog
Most of these comments portray pure ignorance! None of you are the producers of DWTS and until you are, don’t complain about who they choose or don’t choose or who they consider a star or not. If it bothers you THAT much, than DON’T watch the show! I personally was not a fan of Jennifer’s but she was declared the winner and I can sure tell you that it will not ruin my week!
Get a life you people! I love how everyone slams the palins for being this or being that. Really!? You're falling into their trap to stay in the public eye and extend their 15 minutes and make millions in the process. The comments I've read about tea party people being dumb and dumbing down America, and how only people who support Obama are the smart ones in this country make me laugh. You're all stupid! Liberals are stupid for supporting higher taxes and more government welfare programs, and conservatives are stupid for getting their panties in a bunch for supporting "don't ask, don't tell." I could go on and on about both groups have all their priorities out of whack. I say live and let live and keep your hands off my money that I work hard to earn for me and my family.
Someone said she was doing the "Alaskan Moose Stomp" and that was such a funny visual.
It is so wonderful that Palin did not win!! She does not deserve such an honor as she cannot compete with the best and needs to face up to it and hang it up already! Congratulations to Jennifer Grey and her extremely talented partner Derek Hough!!
BOTH PEOPLE ON THE RIGHT AND ON THE LEFT ARE SICKO...SO FULL OF HATE FOR THE PALINS...WHAT KIND OF HUMAN BEINGS ARE YOU. SHAME ON YOU ALL.
BY THE WAY, CONTESTANTS WHO HAVE A PREVIOUS DANCE BACKGROUND SHOULD NOT BE ON THE SHOW...THEY HAVE AN AVANTAGE.
IN MY OPINION, KYLE SHOULD HAVE WON...HE WAS TERRIFIC AND HE IMPROVED EVERY WEEK!
Jennifer projected the worst, predatory personality, not to mention that she is quite stiff at dancing. Derek led the team by far. However, the judges were salivating over her which was the clue that the winner having been determined long in advance of yesterday's show. I do not believe that she deserved the win. Yes, Bristol is no dancer, but so is Jennifer. I would rather vote for Kyle and Lacey – they poured their hearts out, without a show-off and insincerity of the winner couple.
I'm actually glad Bristol didn't win. After one guy shot his TV, another sent an envelope of white powder to the studio, and others gave death threats – I would've hated to see the carnage, bloodshed, standoffs, & mass murder the lefty loonies would have enacted had Bristol won.
Funny how all the "violence" & hatred they kept talking about regarding the TEA parties never happened, but the lefties become violent over a stupid DANCE show!!!
Just shows you how crazy they are!!
You know this guy to be a liberal... how ?
he used a GUN arent all liberals anti-gun, anti second amendment etc.
Cowan then pointed the gun at his wife, Janice, who told the Associated Press that her husband suffers from bipolar disorder and had been drinking alcohol before the incident took place. She also said he was stressed by financial difficulties.
Rob, it is a stupid dance show but it became so much more thanks to a true American patriot who has some serious guts.
Bristol Palin put her life on the line to show millions of Americans exactly who each and every Democrat truly is. She showed Americans the truth, that almost every Democrat in this country wished her death, a 20 year old innocent girl having millions of Democrat wanting her killed because of her mothers politics.
Thousands of Democrats made death threats and DWTS had no choice but to try and save lives. When their leader Obama says in an interview with Univision that every American right of center is the enemy, he feeds the fire of the intolerant, hatefilled, selfish Democrat who then wishes death to Americans who are not lib, and some of those libs act on it like that teacher in Alabama, the guy with the plane in Austin, and the guy who went to shoot up the Discovery Channel building.
Thanks to Bristol millions of Americans have seen exactly who Democrats are and have been made aware of the fact that they are supporting evil and hate, endorsing wishing death to your fellow Americans because of their politics, if they cast a vote for a Democrat. A victory for the truth thanks to an American Patriot, thanks Bristol!
Glad Jen won. To those saying she has a dancing background – she danced in a movie 30 years ago. Brandi has a dancing background, Not JG. And it's not voter fraud – it's voting fraud. Disney will make up numbers to keep people watching. Was it Stalin who said 'it's not who votes, but who counts the votes'.
Disney gambled and had Kelly Osborne on last year, and she blossomed before our eyes! We loved it. H8Kate crashed and burned, and we loved it. Having a Painlin was like scraping a chalkboard, and we hated it.
We now know who won, and I can tell you who lost – ME! I always watched, and never cared who won, or trusted the results. This year, the few dances I watched made me realize the magic was gone – I doubt if I'll ever return to the show. There's too many other shows to watch, especially on Monday night! Reality shows are like a balloon, to anyone but the brain dead. Once you smell how fake they are, the balloon breaks, and there is nothing left to look at.
Bristol should try in "The Biggest Loser" and I betcha she'll win here.
Dancing with the Stars is a wonderful show. You get to see people from all walks of life try to learn a dance,then perform. Each week should be an improvement and the best dancers should be the last one standing. This season was not very evident of that. You could see truly that hard work, dedication and the will not go give up was a small portion of you winning. This show revealed to americans that Votes really do matter. This should show americans how votes can change anything. That if people vote for an indiividual that does not mean they are the best. Jenifer deserved to win and she did. Just imagine if this coutry .expressed their opinion about Health Care for everyone in america. Brandii you were awesome!!!!!! People of America bring your votes to the poll. Max siadi it best why his family came to america, the right to vote.
Bolton has concerts??? Who goes???
It is a dance contest. The best dancer among the contestants won. She strove to be the best and succeeded. That’s what we admire in this country, right?
I'll ask again ... what did Bristol Palin ever do to gain star status? People in the entertainment industry and in professional sports gian star status by becoming the best at their respective fields. So what has Bristol Palin done to become a star? Become an unwed teenage mother? That only requires reporductive organs and ignorance on how to prevent an unwanted pregnancy. All she's done beyond that is traded on her mother's noteriety and that doesn't necessarily require a special talent. So, what has she done? What is her big accomplishment?
Sorry to see Jennifer win; what a whiner. I think Kyle should have won. Sick and tired of Jennifer and BP...
i think she looked better before the nose job.
As a point of reference, so did she, after the fact.
WOW. even after it is over all the liberal pukes are still babling their idiocy over Bristol. grow up you immature morons and go back to your nickel and dime jobs
"And the winner is....."
WHO CARES? Geez, get over it already! Has America become so pathetic that people are glued to the edge of their seats, biting their nails and ACTUALLY PHONING IN THEIR VOTES on an absolutely rediculous program like this? I thought people watching American Idol were bad (people coming to the hospital complaining of DEPRESSION when it was over and their favorite didn't win???) but this goes beyond idiotic. Who gives a rip over who wins? IT'S A DANCE SHOW, PEOPLE, and not a very good one at that, from what I've gleaned. There is a country daring the world to stop it (North Korea for those who watch DWTS instead of the news), a group planning terrorist hits against American interests, an economy Stephen King couldn't have dreamt of, younger generations showing absolute and abject disrespect for their elders, and THIS is what people are concerned with. Sad. Sad and pathetic. Well, at least I have a life and its pretty d*mned good (without DWTS), so I'll continue to sit back and laugh at all you...you...whatevers.
It's all about ratings and cold, hard cash. ABC knew exactly how much buzz and controversy Bristol would bring to the show. Unfortunately she cost Brandy her fair shot at the trophy. As much as I loathe Bagger Barbie and her politics, I admire Bristol for her perserverence and courage. My prayer for Bristol is that she continue to develop her self confidence and learn to let go of the emotional baggage she carries. To thine own self be true and let the chips fall where they may.
That's the sort of thing you pray for and bug god about?
Bristol said at the beginning she couldn't dance,but she did try. All dancers are not in shape and are different sizes. I saw a dancer that weight 350 lbs and she was great. Please when you are in perfect shape and you can do everything, do not cast a stone. You made a mistake than because there was and has only been one perfect being. By the way I did not watch even one show, but I bet everyone did the best they could. Do I hear envy?. If you can't support someone than don't trash them. We have enough hate in this world. God Bless our Soldiers!!!!!!!!.
I'm done with this farce of a show. The winner was a whiner, cry baby that was a drama queen, this hurt, that hurt, wah, wah. Yet, she plastered her phony smile on and danced without any sign of pain. I thought Kyle deserved it more. Bristol did her best but needed more. I thought this was suppose to be for contestants that had no dancing background, yet Jennifer was a dancer in her movie. Give me a break. After all the years of watching, no more.
Who said they were supposed to have no dance experience? All the athletes...dancing is really related to any sport where movement is important as is rhythm. All the actors have had some musical theatre experience. At the same time ballroom dance contests are a lot different in terms of judging than dancing on Broadway.
Porky Palin says " That's all Folks"
So glad the right team won. I was a huge Jeniffer fan from the start and was glad to see justice done last night. The placements were all correct, with the exception of Palin who should have gone home on week one.
"I want to prove to all the haters i can do it"...please..go back to Alaska and fade away..
Congrats Jennifer and Derek!!
What is sad is that people are saying if so in so won I would never watch it again. The reality is not too many people watch it in the first place.
I do not watch the show nor do I care who won. I did enjoy reading many of your comments. It is amazing to me how some of you allow a person that none of you know to get you this upset. You know, the more you talk about a person,the more power you are giving them. I didn't make that up, it is common sense. I also got a laugh from the person who said that the Palin family is destroying America. WE are destroying America. Wouldn't it be nice if we could just blame it on one family or how about just one president? I think America watches entirely too much television and that IS the problem. Make decisions for yourself and not by what CBS,NBC,FOX, etc. tells you about a person. I f the only education you are getting is through a television well, then you are not being educated.
I'm surprised Bristol stuck around as long as she did. I figured she'd resign half way through the first episode.
there might be a god after all , lmao. palin effect? no more hey where was her baby durning all this , just wondering. mom an dad i bet where off doing her book tour not worrying about death threats . some good family values there . thats how it works they push the idea of good family values , and do what ever they want . im surprised that Bristol didn't quit . oh yeah mom is the only quitter . an good for you the guy that killed his tv. maybe more of us should do that . i know some of you are to stupid to even have a tv , cuz you listen to it way to much, think for yourself , question authority .
How predicatable, Jennifer Gray might have talent but where has she been over the years so was this her back to acting resume, she stumbled three times on Monday Night and Last night and she gets a perfect score. Kyle now he really he great to watch and progress was great and a real showman. Bristol, she never stood a chance from day one but she hung in there and showed that you can change, so what if she had a baby as a single mother a lot of stars do. All in all it was fixed and very disappointing.
OK Bristol, now go and take care of your kid.
It's too late to try to save the image of the show. The damage done by keeping Palin on Waaaaay longer than she deserved is irreparable. Jennifer Grey outclassed Palin with her talent & skill, no doubt! However, Jennifer should have won against Palin, even if Jennifer had only just stood on the stage and did nothing. I didn't even bother to watch the finale and just read about it in the paper this morning. That's how much damage was done by the show's biased attempt to keep Palin in the runnings and I'm sure they are many, many others who didn't bother to watch as well. Dancing With the Stars = 'Whatever!'
PEOPLE IN AMERICA ARE SO HATEFUL TOWARDS THEIR FELLOW MAN!!!!!
I felt bad for Bristols partner. He carried her and believe me, it was alot to carry!!!!! Fat B!tch!!!
Democrats/ Liberals are so hateful and angry towards people they don't like. It is what is wrong with America. Liberals when they don't like you spew hate, threats and 'white powder'. They are a poor reflection on this country.
And at last, our long national nightmare is over...
So much hate wow ,whats wrong with you people ? Do you teach your children to hate like this.? That is why are country is the way it is.And I'm sure all the haters will answer my comment with anger it's are way.Good luck Jennifer , Kyle and Bristol. And oh anger is so time consuming, and strips you of character.
Thanks mother theresa
Opposite Of Joy, It took very little to prove my point. You came right back with a comment full of anger and hate. Do you feel better now. And by the way I am far from Mother Theresa. LOL. It is a show ,and maybe I didn't care how things went this year. But I still say good luck Jennifer Kyle and Bristol and all the dancers that performed this season. What was the word you used fart, well fart is signing out. And bless you from Mom Theresa.LOL LOL LOL
Great news maybe her and her mother will go back to hunting food and stay out of our lives
RACISM IS STILL ALIVE IN AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!
Americans make themselves look very stupid and set their country back into the stone ages.
This is just a little dance show and yet it makes some of you frothing at the mouth with political and racial slurs.
Get a life ...!!!
AND YOU JUST PROVE IT WITH STUPID COMMENTS LIKE THAT. I BET YOU'RE REAL PROUD OF YOUR SELF.
PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR JENNIFER WHERE RACIST! KYLE SHOULD HAVE WON!!!!!
I don't know if its that people are racist. I LOVED Kyle and Lacey and voted for them but some people may have thought Jennifer was a better dance..personal opinion..not racism
Come On, People! This is a show about dancing. It is a show about artistic expression, and beauty, and yes, popularity. It is in NO way about politics. To all you people who can't help complaining about Bristol Palin because of your pervasive political perspective, let me remind you that (1) Bristol is not Sarah, and (2) It shouldn't matter anyway. That's not what DWTS is about. Why do the people of the political far left hate so much? And why do they insist on spewing that vile-smelling hatred on all of us who only want to appreciate an admirable effort and a beautiful effect?
PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR JENNIFER WHERE RACIST!!! KYLE SHOULD HAVE WON!!!!!
Bristol Palin has been quoted in several media outlets as saying "Going out there and winning this would mean a lot. It would be like a big middle finger to all the people out there who hate my mom and hate me." Apparently the voting public gave one back.
PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR JENNIFER WHERE RACIST. KYLE SHOULD HAVE WON!!!!!
@ all u jerk0ffs. Who the F cares about TV.
Glad fatty Palin lost!!! Mommy must not have called 50,000,000 times.
Jennifer Grey is a professional dancer and should have never been on the show.
[my comment goes here]
PEOPLE VOTED FOR JENNIFER INSTEAD OF KYLE BECAUSE THEY ARE RACIST!!!!
OMG, I cannot believe all of the negative comments on here about Jennifer and Bristol. If everyone is so annoyed with them, why did any of you watch the show??
Good ,bad what does it matter everyone came out and danced. All three runner ups put there best foot forward .We always complain about some thing, it's are way. My best wishes to Jennifer , Kyle , and Bristol .
"NOBODY PUTS BABY IN THE CORNER!"
"Nobody puts Baby in the corner"
Bristol's a loser like her mom shes trying to get regonzied like mommy which will never happen go home and take care of your kid and Sarah go shoot a moose.
This blog is funnier thin saturday night live. I love it... I have L.O.L for about one hour. Thanks to all of you made my day
I find it humorous that so many people here don't understand the "Palin effect". What don't you understand? She's NOT A STAR! WHY was she on the show anyway? Cause she's a PALIN!
Nobody puts baby in the corner!
I still haven't figured out how Bristol Palin was considered a "star". She certainly had no dancing talent. She was almost laughable.
yes , and so are you, to even think that celebs are anything special. Get a life..!!!
If Bristol would have won the left wing loons would have revolted in Hollywood so the fix was in.
Jennifer should have been the winner. I did not watch the finale last night and will probably never watch DWTS again. What I lost most confidence is the judges and their warped system of scoring. They are the ones that I really lost respect for. We can't get mad at Bristol.
Although I must say that when I was voting "last week" I got one vote in and then a recording that I had reached my total number of votes from this number. I know that I had only gotten through once and most of the calls, I got a recording saying with the terrible sound saying that the number didn't exist. That didn't stop me, I continued voting, even after being told that I had reached my total, until I got through.
There was something wrong with DWTS voting but the judges are mainly to blame!
All those suck, I don't care whose on them. Only people with nothing else to do(I guess there are alot of you out there) watch these mindless shows.
I have watched DWTS since the very first season. Last night was my last I will never watch again.First all you Americans are cruel. We in Canada all know you despise Sarah Palin. Leave her daughter alone. I give her points.
Now Jennifer Grey again another one with obvious much dance background you knew from the first show she was going to take the trophy. DWTS has gone away from what it is suppose to be about and that is people who don't know how to dance and improve every week. Can you compare Emmitt Smith with Jennifer Grey? I don't think so!!! They need to get back how it originally started. I wasted 11 weeks!!!!!

This article reads like you barely got through the show without tossing your cookies. We concur. Who really cares any more about any of these shows. It was refreshing to read an article that didn't feel like a script from Entertainment Tonight.
As for the show itself, how cares?
I love the show, everyone works so hard I am not a dancer just like Bristol she did great she was very brave . Kyle just adorable love that young man, And Jennifer that girl is a wonderful dancer no one can say different,. WE NEED TO FOCUS OUR ANGER WHERE IT BELONGS AGAINST OUR CORRUPT, LYING, FREEDOM STEALING DISHONEST GOVERMENT. DONT
Jennifer totally had an advantage and didn't deserve to win - she was an amazing dance BECAUSE SHE WAS A PREVIOUS DANCER. Jennifer and Brandy should have been on "Dancing with the Stars, when you've worked with choreographers".
How are they in the same playing filed as Kyle? He so deserved to win.
Palin wasn't even in the same league. She came a long way, but Kyle was so much better.
The judges are partly to blame for Palin statying as long as she did. How on earth did she get 8's and 9's??!! Why didn't Len criticize her like he did Michael Bolten? She just wasn't good enough. Rick Fox should have been in the finals as well as Brandy!
Wow, even the hatred of the Left presents itself here. Incredible.... No wonder Main Stream America voted the Dems out of office... You all are seething in your own misery lol
What about all you bothered by the "Palin effect"? You must have been under the Obama effect because he was a black man. Get over it. He has F-d this country over and over and if you haven't seen it your under the Obama spell. The man couldn't manage his way out of a wet paper bag. Back atcha!
The obsession of the left is entertaining in itself.
I just want to say I really like DWTS and Jennifer Grey's win. I'll leave the critiquings to others.
BTW – to those of you who keep saying to leave politics out of this (not that her mother is a politician) it IS about politics.
The only reason the unwed highschool nobody dropout was a "star" on the show was because of the half term. Both women have put down the President as a rock star and a celebrity and look what they both have become. The whole family is pathetic and a bunch of hoodlums (check out the track and willow stories).
Neither one is a star but they sure know how to ho the money out of their followers/pimps.
Seriously? You people watch this crap in the first place? I've never seen it, don't ever care to see it and could care less who won or lost. As for the crying about any of the Palin's let it go. You'll feel much better. Now go outside and see the sunlight for the first time in a decade.
You really didn't think that the porker from AK was going to win this gig, did you? The show already sucks. They kept her around for ratings and it failed miserably. If anybody but Jennifer and Kelly had won that would have been it and we would be left with that other, oh so wonderful new show, skating with the stars. ABC did fess up to voting irregularities at the end. Really? You cheated until the end but "smarter" minds prevailed and the real dancers won.
I can't believe that the ones who wrote all the bad things about bristal is even allowed to speak. You are all stupid commie liberals. You idiots are going to ruin this country. You shouldn't be allowed to bread.
WOW!! Seems to be a lot of people jealous of the Palin family! At least Bristol wasn't crying and faking injuries to get sympathy votes! Jennifer Gray played the old injured woman card and the judges fell for it.
I will say everyone tried their best. I am so amazed of Tyler. He showed the world that even though a person might be fat or overweight; it does not mean that person cannot be acftive and flexible. I was touched by his movement and flexibility. I do hope people would look at fat people differently.
I'm with Barbara Bush's thinking.... I hear the Palins like Alaska. I hope they stay there.
Congrats to Jennifer, the rightful winner.
Bristol should not have even been on this show. She is not a star and the only reason she got on is because of her mother. And in response to some of the Palin morons who left comments on her saying they are the new standard in this country grow up!!! They are not. They need to just go back to Alaska and stay there. Leave Washington to people who know what they are doing!!
Jeniffer Grey should not have even been there. She is a professional dancer and I thought this show was about amateur dancing. What a stupid show.
Well, I for one, was soooo tired of hearing about Jennifer's injuries! GET OVER IT ALREADY! i think she wanted to constantly remind of us it, incase she did mess up she could blame it on her injuries. I don't remember hearing anyone else complaining of their booboos! Also, did anyone else think Jennifer was acting "silly" at times! I agree that she was the better dancer, but she really GOT ON MY NERVES! Glad it's over!
People are mean....Ms. Palin worked very hard at the dancing, as anyone could see by here improvement each week. I believe the right person won in the end, but do not discredit Ms. Palin for trying. I also thought she was a likable person. and No I am not a fan of her mothers, but do think Bristol deserves credit for hanging in there. I also hope this will lead to something good as she seemed a poised and likable person.
Thank god Jennifer won!!! I second Barbara Bush.....the Palins should stay in Alaska! (not really fair to all the people and lving animals there) perhaps we can rocket them into outerspace?
GET IT BABY!!!!!!. WHO SAID SHE COULDN'T STILL DANCE A LITTLE DIRTY!!!!! LOL!
Bristol Palin is star in my book. The same way Chelsea Clinton, The Obama kids or Bush's kids are stars so is she. She is well known.I know who she is, she or the world don't know who I am or all of you questioning her star status.
What kind of garbage reporting was that?:
"German pop legend David Hasselhoff, who sounded quite tone deaf behind the mike. Germans may know beer, but pop music? Not so much."
David Hasselhoff was born and raised in the U.S. His great great great grandmother emigrated to Baltimore in 1865.
I think they were referring to the fact that he is very popular in Germany. the adore him. it's really weird. lol
Way to go Ferris' big sister!!
She deserved to win since she danced well, but my did I have up to there with hearing about her injuries and how she danced through all the pains!
let me try again. I am a black woman, who wanted to vote for Bristol Palin. I know the results are a fraud because for the first time I wanted to vote for her I couldn't get through. I think people are too hateful, whatever happen to freedom of speech and the right to vote for whoever you think should win. What's the point of having people vote. Bristol, you are a winner in my book. This is the second time I ever watched DWTS. The first, was whem Emmet Smith won and now. ano one was bashing Emmet Smith then. Some people have short memory. Why poeple are so worked up over Sarah Palin is beyond me. Secondly if people wants to see professionals win it should be Dancing with the professional stars. On the question of you being a star, you are, because you are known worldwide, regardless of how you came to be well known. You came to fame the same way, chelsea clinton, the obama kidz, the bush's kids and so many political kids came to fame. So you are a star.
You are defining celebrity, not star-dom.
when did teenager having a baby make you a STAR...it's rating they got what they wanted and she got what she deserves
watched the show last year and thought it was great. didn't watch this year because you went the way of putting on Alaskan trailer trash
where did my comment disappeared to. CNN are censoring comments now.
I think the whole Palin bashing is pathetic. What are people afraid of. I hve never watched DWTS before this season, I think Bristol Palin should have won because she has shown what its supposed to be about. O experience to a dancer. I tried to vote for the first time and it was for her. Interestingly, I could not get to sign or use my FB account because of tech. difficulty with ABC. But when I tried the other 2, Kyle and Jennnifer, no problem. I did not waste my 5 votes for them. Oh did I mentiioned I am not a TeaPartyer and black.
I thought that Bristol did a good job for an untrained dancer. The complaints about what people had said about being a single mother made her seem like a whiner. Her single-mom-status & the criticisms directed her way had nothing to do with her dancing. Bristol's appearances, flitting from program to program, touting her nice-girl image is difficult to watch. If she wants people to get over focusing on her and her lifestyle, she needs to stop talking about it constantly on nationally televised programs.
Jennifer Gray & Brandy in the final dance-off would have made more sense that Bristol's appearance. It was fun to watch Kyle. Bristol, hold your head up and m-o-v-e on with your life in a more private manner.
I think more and more people are offended by Sarah Palin. Unfortunately, this translates to a certain distaste for her entire family. Bristol may be a fine person, but she definitely was NOT the best dancer. I think Bristol being in the finals was an insult to many people. She just wasn't good enough. So, both, as a political matter – the Palin's divisive politics, and as a practical matter – Bristol was just not that good, I think the best dancer did win – and that would be Jennifer. Not to mention, that Bristol getting knocked up does not make here a "teen activist" or a "star". But she is a media personality and I suppose that is enough,...
I wonder what kind of magic Jennifers doctor worked on her ruptured disc. I had a ruptured disc once that went into a nerve and I was in a lot of pain and could barely move. Some people sure put their body's thru a lot and I hope that she did not do further damage to her spine.
Im so glad jenifer won..
Who cares? DWTS is just dancing and a show that takes away time that you could be doing something a bit more productive with your life! Read a book or go for a walk. Volunteer at a homeless shelter, make a difference in someones life.
i think all the dancers were good.i love the one 4rm kyle.
"What has the Palins done to totally destroy your families?"
and that right there represents the dumbing down of america–if you cant see the destruction of this country thanks to people like sarah palin, the tea party, roger ailes, FOX, rupert murdoch, karl rove, etc etc etc...
the fact that you are clueless enough to even ask that show that you are either 14 years old or not worthy of voting in this country!!
KIm is a perfect example of ignorance. She or it thinks abortion and high taxes is good and blames those who support life and small government is bad, Kim said those who support Palin are not worthy. Ummm....perhaps Kim should humble itself because it doesn't sound like a human with a conscience is actually posting. Matter of fact..it sounds lime a democrat.
Important lessons learned from the show:
1) Conservatives want their own to win at all cost, no matter how unqualified they may be.
2) Because of that, don't count Sarah Palin out just yet.
I despise sarah palin and her INSANE right wing nutso agenda. But people should leave her kid out of it. I'm a father of two girls and I would hate for my children to be attacked because of anything I said or did. I don't watch this show, and like I said I think sarah palin is a disgusting piece of white trash who is awful for the country..but I wouldn't go after her kids, just like I don't want right wingers to go after obamas kids, or chelsea clinton. Let's show just a bit of class everyone!
What about what Bristol said and did?
In case ABC wonders why I will never watch this show again, This is why!!!! It is so apparent that they make a deal with certain celebrities ( Donny, Jennifer) It's written into a contract– if you appear on the show, we guarantee you a win. In the season Donny appeared, the judges said on the first show that he would win!! So, we never watched another show that season!! Why bother?? When Jennifer Grey showed up this season, we thought, okay, more of the same– they've jumped the shark! Even the d***med tea baggers couldn'y prevent what is written in secret contracts!!! Even if you could get Prince William on there next time, we will never watch this f'n show again..
As far as the show – never have watched it – never will. Having said that – Ms. Grey was on the show partly because of her acting, partly becuse of her family leniage I am sure (father, Joel, has long been a fixture on Broadway, most notably for Cabaret). Ms. Palin was on only because of her mom and her pregnancy which made her stick out in the media coverage of her mom – otherwise she'd just be another face in the crowd.
I think Bristol's thong worked against her. It drew to much attention to all that was back there.
No one should watch again anyways. The fact that she was even on the last show is insult to everyone's intention. She was terrible from the start. Yes she got better... She want from terrible to decent. She definitely didn't deserve to be there in front of brandy.
it went to some one with real dancing talent...thank god.
Any doubts? She 'IS' a dancer~!! LOL
Awesome jennifer Grey won! No one else came even close to her talrnt & skill as a dancer. Brandy should have come in second! Bristol is a sweet girl but talent wise, should have been eliminated weeks ago! The judging system needs to be overhauled. The 3 judges should should get more points than the people calling in. Change how or how many times the viewers can call in!
All the call in shows are simply popularity contests..Hardly proof of their talent..
But in this case a real dancer won...How could she not?
You have done so well,keep it up.
You have done well,keep it up.
OMG it's a fricken TV show. The whole damn thing is rigged for RATINGS people. Its interesting to see how any show runs your lives. Instead of critisizing anyone, i suggest you all look in a darn mirror.
Seriously, who gives a F?
Bristol is a kid with the responsibility of a baby. she did this show for the payday. which anyone else would do given the chance. i cannot stand the sight of her mother but i would never say such nasty things about this girl she doesn't deserve all this animosity. you should be ashamed of yourselves
i was on jennifer's side since the beginning... she's so beautiful and talented and sweet. bristol palin did not deserve to get so far but i don't hate her, she was fun to watch and she seems like a kind person. i voted for jennifer, but in truth kyle should have won b/c jennifer has like years of dancing and she performed on broadway as well, so it's an unfair advantage. i liked seeing her with the trophy, but kyle would've been ok with me as well.
It is hilarious that some of actually think its a talent contest. its a freaking popularity contest. Where were some of you when Jerry Rice was able to advance while scoring near the bottom. Oh that's right, his name isn't Palin. So it doesn't matter. A quick look on wikipedia shows it isn't the 1st time and it won't be the last time where the poorly scored couples advance while the better couple went home. When you allow people to phone in, you're gonna have people trying to do whatever they can to help the person they like.
ha! bristole palin is just as big a loser as her mom. the apple don't fall far from the idiotic tree.
did you mean "the apple doesn't fall..."?
and anyway, the host does say 'vote for your favorite dancer', not, 'vote for your favorite celebrity based on how stupid their family is'
Is you family less stupid than the Palin family? Less successful too?
is lola's family less successful than one where the wife quit the job the people elected her to do? Interesting question!
i did not want Palin to win, but I think that if she did, who are we to blame the judges or anyone else? Americans are the ones voting, so we cant say the right person didnt win. if you wanted someone else to win, you should have voted for them rather than sat and see how big the tea party is.
You are so right. A lot of people keep saying the "conservatives", the "right wingers" voted for Bristol and that is how she stayed in. Well, where were the votes for all the "Hollywood" clan, the "pop singer" clan. Either "shut up", or "put up" next season. Bristol was not the best dancer, but apparently one of the most popular. A lot of dancers did good. And, as far as Bristol not being a star; she might not be a "movie star". But she is a star in my book because she made a mistake and has tried to let other young girls know what happens if a young girl has a baby out of wedlock and all the problems it brings. My definition of a star is Bristol. She's not a loser; she's a winner because she can admit her faults and move on and do her best to make of a bad situation. And, they called her – she didn't call them. I think DWTS has shown us that the word "Star" quality is in the eye of the beholder. Good for them for having people like Bristol.
Bristol had the courage to compete and she did well. She was getting "9's" from the judges at the end. That was a good score. She's a winner. I
After carefully reviewing the rule book and voter guides for DWTS, and then using commercial brakes and a carefully calculated amount of time after each show to replay each dance in slow motion; I applied the strict guidelines outlined in the afore mentioned materials and judicially weighted each of my precious votes in order to determine the best dancers on each performance night. However, after talking to a few other people, and then reading these comments, I have come to realize that not everyone used the same voting criteria. I’m just shocked. I’m going to write to my Congressman about this. THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!
@Nurse Betty. They don't hear us, they are so focused on their TV HABIT, they can't smell the smoke or see the flames. They MUST ignore and remain in denial or else they will have to deal with it. If you DO get their attention, they will rebuke, insult and blow you off with a smart remark, then return to their fix...... That safe, warm, comfy place where they can be IN CONTROL, PONTIFICATING In NONSENSE. I know it's wrong to say, but I'm looking forward to when the TV and Internet goes dark, and they realize they are DONE.
Ah, so you want Americans to suffer and die, huh. What a true patriot you are! What an honorable man!
Oh thank god the idiot offspring was not the winner. what a waste of time watching this bovine gallop around making us sea sick. get back to alaska in your truck and watch korea from your backyard to gain some more foreign affair experience.
Are you the same guy as the 'village idiot'?
And it's individual's like you who obviously make this country a strong one full of clear minded, calm, intelligent people. If only there were more American's like you who are able to acknowledge that although we may have differing opinions we are all still human and should be treated with courtesy and respect. Thank you for being such a citizen.
(If your name is any indication to your intelligence level then I would like to inform you that this post is dripping with sarcasm. Bristol has done nothing but perhaps no share the same views as you, and yet you hurl unmerited verbal abuse at her. Please grow up and have respect.)
I thought all of the dancers put on a great show and I am really glad that Jennifer Grey won and I thought she did an incredible job for her age. I don't have anything against Bristol Palin although I am not reall a fan of her mother and she did an outstanding job for someone without any prior dance experience. I was looking at her closely and it seemed as thoough she has the same profile as Miss Piggy if you look at her with those long eyelashes for some reason, it's actually kind of cute. I'm not trying to be rude but she really looks like her, sorry.
This is just a little dance show , so why all these vitriolic and demeaning comments.?
Americans have become such mean spirited people and find the need to politicize everything.
No wonder your country is in such a mess.
It's all her mother's fault, dragging her children into limelight to get into White House, that's all
David Hasselhoff used to be an icon in Germany, at the max... Not like he is still on the radio all the time. Or being talked about (not for his music, at least)
well, at least was not Bristol I think it was fair enough. However it was admirable that she danced through the pains. We posted in our blog about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes and an other divorce is in the horizon...
Some of these comments are hilarious. First off, it's just a TV show, and the producers have made each of you react as they wish, which makes us all puppets. Secondly, the ones that claim that others who disagree with them are 'not worthy of voting" – according to who's standards? Two days before Thanksgiving, and so much hate. It's kind of sad.
The right people won for sure! Palin only made it that far because of "connections" which I think is ridiculous.
Made it because of her connections? Is she the niece of Tony Suprano?
You put your right hand in,
You put your right hand out,
You put your right hand in,
And you shake it all about,
You do the hokey pokey
and you turn yourself around
That what it's all about.
Bristol should have danced to "Imagine" by John Lennon and maybe for a couple minutes not so many people would have not hated her so much.
Up till now, I still don't know Bristol belongs to which STAR groups !
From teenage single mom ?
Bristol Palin is a "star" for the same reason the Kardasian family is.
In other words, for no discernable reason at all!
shows how dumb you are to think that these celebs are anything special , the only stars worthy of this name are the ones that you can see up in the sky and I bet you don't know any of them by name.
Why the hell are the palin supporters bringing up te fact the winner was in a movie 20 years ago???
Maybe it's becuase that is the only argument they have against the winner. Boohoo... Seems everytime something Palin related loses, people go to the ends of the earth to come up with excuses.
Not really surprised. If I was a pro based off something I did 20 years ago, Id get a trophy for peeing in my diapers.
I'm so glad as a young adult, this is what America is coming to – complaining your idols daughter didn't win a contest that doesn't matter.
I think most everyone believes that Jennifer was the best dancer. However like the judges most objective people know that Bristol made the most improvement – granted she had the most room to improve. That is what makes her a winner as she worked hard and reached her potential as a dancer.
And why do you assume that it is only the Palin supporters thinking this? When did Kyle become invisible in all of this? I personally think that Jennifer's situation is slightly unfair, she did come with some dance experience. I personally wanted to see Kyle win, he improved so much especially with his inexperience and lack of being in shape (he is still adorable regardless). He always gave his best and perservered with a smile. I'm not sure why more people aren't disappointmented for this hard working young man.
Glad I don't hear Jennifer whining anymore. She should not sign up for things if too much for her.
I was actually hoping Bristol would win just to force the producers to change the voting system. It is totally unfair. Just a popularity contest. It should be changed to a 60% judges – 40% vote by public. That might created a system where the better dancers like Max & Brandy (my favorites) aren't voted off. They could have been the winners I think. Jennifer Is almost a professional and her dad is Joel Gray of Cabaret on Broadway. She came from a dancing household.
The best way of voting for these types of shows should be to vote for the loser, rather than the winner. That way, if there's someone that's really bad, they will get the most votes and be eliminated. The current method for DWTS and American Idol means that the winners' votes get diluted, and you have someone advance several rounds that probably shouldn't.
Jennifer won but I got sick of her whining. If she was that hurt, etc she should not of signed on.
The only reason why Jennifer won is because she already knew had to dance from the beginning. Just like Nicole did last year. They should get contestants who dont know how to dance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I agree! Which is why I voted for Bristol each week. Her personal life (mother included) has nothing to do with the show.
Thank goodness Jennifer won because she was the best STAR dancer. I give her so much credit. Just think a woman in her 50's could dance as she did. Last week, if I had a gun, I think I would have shot our TV too.
I'm glad jennifer won. But, I was impressed with how polished Margaret Cho was. It's obvious that she has continued dancing.
@Robert..... "Sanity is RESTORED???". How SANE is it to sit in front of the BOOB TUBE and watch people jump around like there's no tomorrow???? But wait.... Maybe there IS no tomorrow. Ahhhh, what the heck, LETS PARTY PEOPLE !!! Right?
Didn't watch it.
Kyle had no business getting second place. Glad Jennifer won, she is the best dancer. Palin should have come in second, politics aside. Kyle looked like he was just bouncing all over the dance floor, nothing more!
I thougt Bristol should have been second. I didn't think it was fair to judge her performance last night against what was on broadway with professional.s. I loved the dance she did. At that age I was terrified to go off to a college 30 miles from my home town. I could never have done this.
Eh i think kyle was better but i guess thats fair
Really is Bristol even a star, no I didnt think so!!!. Im happy with the winner as long as it wasnt her. But also she really should have not made it this far!!
Patrick would have been proud! To Jennifer
How anybody can watch and be addicted to these bogus, fraudulent shows is beyond me. All you viewers need to "get a life" my gosh to waste your time watching and voting for the most popular instead of the the best dancer is beyond comprehension.
The show should be called, "Dancing with Baby Mama Trash".
No one in your family ever have a child out of wedlock? Come on now.
Well considering this person starred in a major motion picture about DANCING.. you'd figure she'd have a chance.
Bristol gets into fights on facebook, is a baby mama, kills fish with laughter and enjoyment but she's a 'Star'?? Ooooook.
Sanity is restored – the right one won.
Bristol should never even have been there.
I think jennifer was a good decision. It should of been out of jennifer, brandy, or kyle, in my decision. I think dancing with the stars is nothing but a popularity contest. It is not chosen off by the best dancer. I do think this time they made a good decision.
i'm sure the death threats to bristol and mark were from sweet liberal democrats, not mean racist conservatives. Interesting that liberals believe you have a right to their opinion only, not your own. Oh btw al gore admitted he lied about ethanol! Ha.
To all you palin haters, i thought she danced very well and she is a very attractive person
BP attractive? You need to get your eyes examined!
I have never watched the show and think all of you watching it should get off your a**es and dance, not watch mindless crap all the time.
I am glad Jennifer won but she did have one of the best dance scenes of ALL TIME in her movie Dirty Dancing..so don't know if that is fair that she was on..I think it needs to be stars with NO dance experience...I like Bristol..I thought she was real..wasn't obnoxious and totally into herself like so many of the stars that are on..I didn't think she deserved to win but she doesn't deserve all of the horrible bullying that some of you people do..she is young and you all need to leave her alone..
All of you who are whining about Jennifer Gray being a "professional dancer" are totally off the mark. Have any of you watched a movie being made? They have take after take to get the best shot. It is not even close to the same thing as performing live. Jennifer starred in a movie that featured dancing some 23 years ago. She had umpteen takes to get a good shot. Nothing about that makes her a professional dancer. I suppose that all of you that saw Avatar really believe in the skinny blue people, too.
Seriously folks. If the one of the couples in Dancing with the stars had to represent us in the Olympic Dance Contest, either Jennifer, and Brandy would selected by the American public. Let's stop being racial and do what right for our country. I glad I grew up in California. Say what you will about us, our California blended communities are what makes this country great!
People seem to forget, yes Jennifer danced in A movie, and that was it. Since then she hasn't danced professional. I felt Brandy was unfairly voted off. I didn't think Pain should have gone this far, not because I don't like her etc, just because she wasn't the better dancer. I also don't think people should say those awful things about her. It's rude and it's just a show about dancing, so we can enjoy. All in All , I was satisfied with the results.
Florance Henderson, was a better dancer than Bristol and Kyle. Good that Jennifer won or dws would have lost
alot of viewes.
a final thought.... I can go to bed tonite knowing that the dancing world is right again... kudos to jennifer & derrick !!
great dancing...you both deserved it!!
So the sob story specialist, drama queen, plastic nose won. Big ffin deal. She was a ringer and why does pretty boy Derek get the pro dancers? Let's see how far he would go with Florence or Chloris. Sick of this show. Can't wait until Idol in January.
Art, I agree with you, JG shouldn't have won. It should have been Kyle (who I didn't hear whining). Kyle's freestyle was so much better than JG's. All she did was move around and DH did most of the dancing. DH shouldn't have won last year with Nicole, Evan L did so much better and should have won. It seems like DWTS is turning into the Derek Hough Show. Hey ABC, give Anna, Tony or Maks the PRO next time and let's see one of them win.
or Louie too! (he is such a cutie)
I had Jennifer Grey pegged as the winner from day one...She had the dancing experience with "Dirty Dancing" and she tore the floor up then.
I think Patrick Swayze would have been extremely proud of her...She still has it, obviously. Looks and the moves. Gotta give her props for playing hurt, as well. That's a gutsy move!
Me and billions of other people around the world have taped every episode of the show while Palin was a contestant. I plan to watch these recording until the recordings wear out. Every place I go that's all that is talked, how is Palin doing?
Billions, huh? You can be sure there were no billions watching the show, let alone taping it. You may think you're the center of the world, but you're mistaken. There are more important issues out there than y few people dancing.
Don't watch the show. But it gets watched in my house by my wife and mother in-law when she visits, so thankfully more than 1 Nice TV is around. Anyway isn't it on during Monday Night Football?
Well I only wanted to ask if dancers move ahead by people calling in as well as the judges voting?
I was just wondering if the Tea Party Nation was speed dialing in votes for Bristol if that was the case.
BTW the Auzzie movie Ballroom Dancing is great.
Yeah dude I got caught up reading all the female and gay Palin hate. LOL! Pathetic...I don't even watch my wifes shows yea gay lovers I'm 100% dude and find all your Palin bashing ignorant. for the record I think this show is for chicks. So watch the damn show ladies you don't have to make everything about politics you annoying old bags. And yea we in the middle find you far left and far right goons stupid...you guys are the ones destroying this country! You guys can't even watch a show in peace.
Doesn't matter, the show lost all credibility with the Palin stunt long ago.
If Palin had won, DWTS would have been finished. But she lost and the producers had made what proved to be a brilliant choice in having Palin in the mix. It was a ratings dream situation and the show still has credibility as a dancing contest.
By Palin making past the first week, really having her on at all, DWTS has no credibility. She was no where near the music for a good part of every dance. Rhythm has never made her acquaintance.
Bristol and her dumb mom are everything that is wrong with the world. The Palin's are such white trash.... Are you kidding me? Anyone that thinks this woman could run the free world probably hasn't left the country, let alone been on a plane.
You have a problem with this post?
Leave middle America, make some money, buy a plane ticket and come to California and let's chat.
Drinks on me you ignorant retard!
Your rude and crude language is what gives haters like yourself a bad name Sorry your self esteem is so low that you have to attack others to feel good.
@Joshie..... Come to California, yeah right! You people were to STONED to pass your own POT POWER PLAY!!!!
"Yeah, Man...... Come to Cali and we'll roll up a juicy Splief, and chat about World Problems, Man..... How those Dumb Conservatives are Screwing it up for the rest of us, Man... Yeah, like.... What was I say'in?? Oh yeah,
It's not Bristol and her mom that are what is wrong with this country. Bristol is a kid. Her Mom is a Narcissistic political wanna be, reatilty tv star, talk show host, motivational speaker cashing in on her 10 minutes of fame in a big way. What is seriously wrong with this country are those people who think she can run the Free World.
I am very happy that Jennifer won...I'd have also been happy if Kyle won...was definitely glad that Bristol was not in the top two. She was a mediocre dancer and while I gave her credit for trying, I got really tired of her play for sympathy by continually tlaking about her lack of dance experience and that she had no performace experience either, After hearing that for the fourth time, I began to like her less and less.
I felt the same way hearing Jennifer's constant whining because of injuries. She knew what she was getting into from the beginning. If it was too much for her, she should have passed on the opportunity. It would be a shame if she were to end up disabled for life because of a trophy and getting to be on TV shaking your bum.
Just a couple of comments. First the folks that call Jennifer a whiner seem to forget that she has lived with over 20 years of chronic pain from her neck injury. I think it's fabulous that she did this show & that she won. You could tell that being able to dance again brought her so much joy.
Second, Bristol definately showed improvement over the course of the show. However when she started talking about the "haters" & how she wanted to "show the finger to the haters" she really lost any respect I had for her accomplishments. That was very poor taste.
I agree Jules. I didn't think Bristol deserved to win whatsoever, but until the end, I gave her credit for trying and kept on saying that you can't blame her that her mother is as polarizing as SP. But, once she started going on and on about the haters, being nasty on FB, complaining about her low scores (who's fault is that) and the "giving the finger" comment, I began to realize that she is NOT the innocent, classy girl I though she may be. Not at all
Big surprise the PROFESSIONAL dancer won while competing against pro/amater couples. I can't believe people waste electricity watching such rigged "contests" that aren't really ever in doubt. Not only is the whiner a PRO but they paired her with the strongest male partner..
Use a dictionary, please!
First she wasn't even a star to begin with , what about that hun???
Then the poor performance, if Jennifer doesn't deserve it so be it.
at least she is a star
It's Dancing With The Stars, not the Alaska Senate Race. Calm Down.
You would think this show actually meant something. It's a throw away television show that doesn't mean a thing in the big picture.
Yes, finally a sane comment with relevance!
You're right. And the producers should have kept it that way. Sarah Palin in one of the most divisive people in our country, causing drama wherever she wanders. By including her daughter in this show, it was bound to become political, which it shouldn't be. Of course, their main goal is ratings and $$, so there you go!
i was waiting for bristol 's elephantine feet to crash through the dance floor
Wow, that was really funny.
Wow I laugh how a lot of people are bristling (no pun intended) over Bristol. It is only after all a tv show. Get over it and find something that really matters to "bristle" (sorry) about. Maybe about the way our country is going right now! Now that's something we should all be bristled about :)
Now that's funny! I'm using that from now on!
The author of this summary is clueless about American pop culture; David Hasselhoff is not "German". He starred in Knight Rider and Baywatch, and had a brief success as a pop singer in Germany. This does not make him German. Fail.
Totally missed the point idiot. Hoff is not a pop icon in America, only in Germany , that makes him a German pop star. You, are bad at the Internet.
The "fail" is yours. David Hasselhoff is hugely popular in Germany, has been for decades. That explains the German pop legend reference.
He is popular in Germany for his roles in Baywatch and Knightrider, not for singing.
The author of this article is an idiot. David Hasselhoff was popular in Germany because of "Baywatch" and "Knight Rider". They make fun of his singing over there just as much as here. I wish, ignorant Americans like the author of this article, would finally get a clue. Seems, like any moron can write articles now. At least hire someone with a brain and tact, insulting Germans over a DWS recap is pointless and gives this report no credibility.
Thank God it was her and not Palin! ugh...that is all that family needs...more attention!
I don't think they appreciate any negative attention, do you?
"There is no such thing as bad publicity except your own obituary"
Thank God America FINALLY showed some common sense!!! If Palin had won, I would have been done with the show!! I voted Kyle but Im cool with Jenn too.
In case you missed it, here's the clip of Grey winning (and Palin losing...):
Grey is a trained dancer. See wikipedia. Thought the show was about taking non-trained "Stars" and training them.
And your source is wikipedia. Even the preschool children know that wikipedia is not a reputable source. So much for your research skills. Guess you missed out during classes on research.
Ummm...you're kind of an idiot yourself for referencing preschoolers as an example. Yeah, Wikipedia isnt a reputable source for research papers or school work, but for the most part it is accurate. Take your childish remarks elsewhere. That was like a middle school kids come back.
I thought the name of the show was Dancing With the STARS. Bristol is a star of what? O, now I remember. She is the daughter of the star Republican Cult leader.
Very true about Bristol. If she didn't happen to be Sarah Palin's daughter, would you and I even know she existed–i.e., through her own accomplishment or fame? Of course not. So the only reason that anyone knows anything about her is mere accident of birth–she's no 'star.'
Thank God!!! Now if Bristol's mother would just crash and burn ... or disappear entirely! ... this media train-wreck might come to an end!
I agree with many of Sarah Palin's policital views like securing our borders, not that it has anything to do with this article. BTW, the Euro is crashing terribly...
Just ran across this article about Dancing with the Stars on the CNN home page. What is Dancing with the Stars?
My bristol hurts.
Well it would appear McCains influence made it to third place. Anyone ever consider what the results had been if he had selected a different running mate, ie, had Clinton beat Obama in the primary? I still think John must crack a smile whenever his Veep is mentioned in the news. Kudos John
Your comments are irrelevant to this article. John M was his worst enemy.
I couldn't watch...... I was too busy stocking up for the pending Global Economic Meltdown. I don't think I'll miss TV, I hardly watch it any more.....so many commercials anyway, but I will miss the Internet. Especially The Library of Congress and all the NEWS around the World. Oh well, back to work.
Is your tin foil hat on nice and tight? That will protect you!
@Stosh. My tin foil hat is actually made of Ballistic Level III Kevlar. While you have been playing Video Games and entertaining yourself, I've been Stockpiling Supplies, Training and collecting Assult Weapons, etc.
From your comment, you must be one if those who will be begging for food, water and protection, should the SHTF. So make your little jokes ! Laugh it up ! Hahaahaaaaa!
Augy, I don't know why my reply to you went to the comment above yours, but there it is.
Now, go to bed – you've got to run around in the woods tomorrow playing army, don't you?
Ha ha ha ha ha!
@Stosh.... You think I WANT our American, easy, cushy, feel good, materialistic way of life to end?? Actually, NO !! But if you are as prepaired as you can be, you don't have to live with fear.... And I must tell you, it's better to be prepaired, and NOT need it, than to NEED it and not HAVE it. I'm not "Playing" ARMY, it IS ARMY. NOT having Fear means you either don't grasp your situation, or you choose to lay down and give up.. Is that your plan? I am going to bed now, and it feels mighty good to at least know I have a chance if my Battery backed infrared perimeter Alarms, and I have time to defend my Family and Neighbors, if need be. You people crack me up, I tell you like it IS, and you joke and make fun..... You are the first ones to crap yourselves and say "I never thoght it could happen to us". Mister, it's happening to THOUSANDS of Inocent people around the Globe EVERY NIGHT AND DAY, and the truth is before you, if you will stop the denial for a few minutes. Don't be Fearful, be READY, or at least as ready as you can. Don't just "do nothing" and expect others to do it for you. It's YOUR JOB, even if you are late at realizing it. That goes for anybody else who reads this post.... If you are already on it.... You have my respect.
Best Regards. Augy
Very very happy that the honor went to someone who truly deserved to win! Your day is over Bristol. You and mama bear go back home pull out your rifles and get back to what you do best. Shoot stuff! Glad to see that she did not win! Glad to see that at least in this case and in this arena Sarah will have no platform to spew her trash! Keep their faces off the camera's where they do not belong. By the way quick question ? Who is taking care of the unwed mothers young child while she is doing all this? Is he with her or did she park him with someone while infiltrating DWTS ?
So glad that you are such a fabulous parent that you are with your children 24/7. Who do you "park" your children with when you go out, or maybe you don't have children? If that's the case, please keep it that way, we don't need little sh%*tspewers infiltrating our planet.
Maybe one of her family members took care of her son. That's what we do in my family.
Augy, I've been hearing the same paranoid theories for over 50 years. They have gotten tiresome.
So I will continue to live my life free from fear. You can continue to live in your fantasy world and stockpile all the stuff you want. I just hope you aren't too disappointed when the world doesn't collapse around you.
Good recap! This was the 1st season of DWTS that I could not bear to finish. What a stupid joke they made of this program inviting politics & a very young, single mother who instead of raising her child was spending her time dancing. I won't even get into Bristol's & her sister's vile behavior on FB (she finds time to FB?). That alone speaks volumes on what & who the Palins are: selfish, divisive & obsessed with media attention. Nice going ABC! You fed the beast.
Last time I checked Brandy has a kid, Jennifer, Kurt, and Rick Fox were you just as judgemental to them?
Im happy Jennifer Grey won she did quite well for this season, even though she has dancing background. Kyle did good too.
Whew! What a relief that I don't have to put up with a Palin win. Now I've got one more reason to be thankful about this Thanksgivin!!!
Did you mean Thanksgiving?
Wow. What a sad life you must have, if that's what you are so worried about.
No don't believe Jennifer should have won . I would much have rather seen Bristol or Kyle win .
Bristol and Kyle had no dancing experience and Jennifer had experience and also did dance in school , so No don't think she should have won .
Well, Jennifer did win, and I believe that she was in a dance movie years ago, not a professional dancer.
It's pretty ridiculous to say "Jennifer Gray had professional dance experience." She was a non-dancer who learned a few dance moves for a movie made 25 years ago–that's about equivalent to calling me a 'professional dancer' because I had to learn a few dance steps for a high school musical 25 years ago–please!!!
Idiotic at best.
Tony, get a life!
i think the couple the deserved to win, won. I wish Bristol and Mark would have come in 2nd place at least. but i am proud of her and i think she did a wonderful job. Out of all the seasons of DWTS that i have watched, this has been by far the best. Maybe next year, they can get Michelle Obama to dance.....talk about politics. Who would vote for her? bet she would get booted out the first elimination
Is this ignorance talking? Michelle has a brain and thinks of others... Palin? Not so much...
You are an idiot!
The same people that voted for her husband... Mr. President!
Why politics needed in dancing ? Bristol is no celebrity . Even 6 year old kid can dance better than her in 11 weeks training.
I just watched the segment where the top 3 were answering viewers questions. There were a lot of "group" questions as to where each would answer the same question. But Bristol by far received the most "personal" questions. And, the questions were not "mean spirited". They were nice and wanted to know about Bristol. So apparently a lot of people respect her for what she did this dance season. And. Jennifer did not get even 1 personal question. I thought that was rather sad for her. It wasn't Jennifer's fault. Just seems more people are more interested in Bristol. She's a breath of fresh air.
SOOOOO glad the Jennifer "Baby" train has rolled outta the station. I was sick and tired of her constant whining and injury references. If she were in such bad shape, looks like she would have had sense enough not to put her body through the grueling task of being on the show. When I had a ruptured disc, I couldn't even walk, so I feel real sorry for her. Kyle was such a showman and Bristol a breath of fresh air in a very jaded industry. Didn't matter who anyone voted for anyway in my opinion, the judges wanted Cry "Baby" to win from the get-go.
Guess you missed the shows when Bristol whined because she did a lot of complaining about wanting to go home, etc. How interesting that you failed to point out Bristol's whimpering!
I agree with you LuLu. Although Bristol complained it wasn't even half as much as the constant water works of Jennifer. The constant sob, 'woe is me look how much pain I'm in, I shouldn't even be standing yet I'm going to go cha-cha' story got real old week after week after week. I wasn't impressed with her.
Let's see– Jennifer is 50 years old & had recent surgery on the vertebrae in her neck. Bristol is what, 21, and supposedly in good health. So who do you think might actually have more aches & pain here?? Bottom line is Jennifer Gray danced the sox off of Bristol and Jennifer's body looks a ton better than Bristol's too. That's just the facts folks.
And BTW, Bristol did do her share of whining. Did you not listen Monday night when she went on & on about "people not liking me" & "the haters".
Bristol whined about not thinking she was talented enough, or if she had what it takes to compete (and, admittedly, she had a point). Jennifer whined about being a martyr and dancing throught he pain every week.
Oh, look at me being the good trooper, risking permanent injury and paralysis just by taking the floor... but the show must go on, so I'll keep dancing... aren't I so awsome for playing throught he pain like a good sport?
I'm sure the two professional atheletes, who have both experienced playing with injuries, saw through that BS. If her knees, neck and back were anywhere near as bad as she kept whining about, it would have affected the fluidity of her movement far more than it did, and she wouldnt have been dancing near as well as she was.
But she did dance great, and deserved to win. Just the martyr act got old.
I agree TOTALLY!!!! First of all...Jenifer has dance experience for years...the other guy works for Disney entertainment.....Bristol was the only one of the 3 that literally learned from scratch and had zero experience. Oh and I hate to break the news to everybody...but....SARAH PALIN WILL BE PRESIDENT IN 2012!!!!!! GO PALINS!!!
About Jennifer's whining–what makes you think it was her decision to keep bringing up her injuries? This is a reality show, the PRODUCERS decide what angle to push to make the show dramatic. THEY asked her to talk to Tom about her "ruptured disc" and she agreed because she's a professional and does what she's told.
Sounds like someone's panties are in a bunch just because their fav. person didn't win. Jennifer Grey is 50 freakin years old, do you people honestly not expect her to have joint pains, neck pains, etc. And just because YOU claim you've had the same injury and couldn't walk for days doesn't mean it's the same type of injury SHE had. Get over yourselves! She deserved to win! Whining or not! And don't give me that crap about she's already had professional dancing experience, that was almost 25 years ago! She's probably been a little too busy over the last 23 years to keep up her dance moves that she learned for a MOVIE!
Palin president? Not a chance. It is statistically impossible. Democrats lead republicans in registered voters by more than 12 million and that margin is growing by 400,000 to 1.2 Million per year. Even if every single one of the 10 million independents voted republican, it wouldn't make a difference. Do a little research sometimes.
Only Palin worth watching is Michael.
HA! I like that! And I like Michael Palin. Good thing they aren't related. :-)
Post of the millenium right there...
It's not even really Bristol's fault, but Brandy so deserved to be in the finals in her place. So that's why people are taking it out on Bristol.
GEEEEZ People! What has the Palins done to totally destroy your families? OK, Bristol had a baby....Im sure that hurt your lives "somehow". Sarah Palin isnt in office or votes on any bills that effect your lives....so whats the deal?
OHHHHHH, now I get it......In your perfect and moral lives, these people are bad, and should live up to YOUR standings?
Yeah...the Palins are "pathetic and are an "atrocity" to the world, according to YOUR "moral" lives? I guess not everyone can stand up to YOUR high morals, right? LOLOLOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
Oh yeah...CONGRATS to Jennifer on winning!
and that right there represents the dumbing down of america--if you cant see the destruction of this country thanks to people like sarah palin, the tea party, roger ailes, FOX, rupert murdoch, karl rove, etc etc etc...
What did Palin do? Annoy the h**l out of us. Has no talent. Is a hypocrite. Has no brain. Has no reason to be on the show since she's not even a D list "celeb". Can't dance. I could go on but I need to get ack to my life.......
Palins set a new standard for America, Morals both in society and politics! You don't know what you lost until you realize it!
Well put. It's American (liberal) nature to b:tch about something. Congrats, dirty dancer!
Do you really think Bristol got asfar as she did based on talent? If so, go over to hillbuzz.org and see who voted for her, and why.
What you see there is typical of today's "conservatives", They don't care whether their candidate has any skills or talent, they just want them to win, no matter what.
Conservatives need to open their eyes to the foreshadowing that has taken place on this show, I'm talking about 2012! Sarah palin affected this show in a huge way. It's easy to brush it off, call names and huff and puff about it but YOUR country is changing, quickly.
Stosh... well said! Tony, haven't you watched the news? What has Palin done to us??? LOOK AROUND YOU!!!
I completely agree with you. Sarah Palin isn't dancing, so why even comment on her? And so what if people are voting for Bristol Palin for no reason other than she's from the Palin family. If you don't like the way the results are calculated, complain to the manufacture (ABC).
Palins are just idiots, both of them..PLEASE make them go away.
Rob, you said it so well, "Palins are just idiots, both of them..PLEASE make them go away." I feel they are just figmants of my imagination. If they didn't look good, would they still even be in the news?
The Palin's may be despised – but not because of any morality – but because of the division and harm they are perpetrating on the American union while they rake in a fortune. The truth is that Palin supporters are giving this family an influence and life style that they don't deserve, while they (the Palin's) threaten to "dumb down" the political discourse. I can only hope the American voter that supports Sarah Palin will wake up in time to understand that Americans can't afford a political policy maker that enriches themselve while dividing everyday Americans with silly rhetoric and foolish policy positions.
After all... its not everyone who can see Russia from their house...
Scary thing is your a man? and you know more about dances than politics and world affairs? wow. That takes the cake if you hadn't already. If you don't know why the country doesn't like the Palins, maybe you should OPEN A FRIGGIN BOOK and stop watching t.v.
Palin needs to say the F away from Red, this fat hather looks like a big red worm. Get back in that truck and be on your way, this part of the of the world is sick of you and your mama. Stay off the moose, try some turkey.
@Stosh, I checked out the hillbuzz.org website. WOW!!! So all the buzz about the Republicans conspiracy was true. It just make me sad that they put in the spot that poor girl that has less personality than the pencils on my desk. But well.
What have the Palins done??? Are u freakin kidding me? She has changed the rules for politics. Make outrageous and usually unfounded accusations about people, including name calling and refuse to discuss policies or platforms except with the reporters worshipping at your altar (yeah...that'd be FOX) so you don't have to be spontaneously required to answer ANY question about anything. Of course any one who dares to disagree with you or your manifesto is labeled 'haters' or those mainstream media. That means anyone who ask an intelligent question that requires a intelligent and unscripted answer. She's a coward pure and simply...and a idiot to boot...but smart and scary like the tactics used in Berlin in 1936. Disagree with me...you get smeared. SHe also incites hatred herself with her name calling venomous attacks...from safely behind a camera.
Whats this about:? Is there a show with dancers? I think there was something like that in the 70s called Solid GOld. it was horrible being locked up in fire and brimstone you dont always get to see the best Television.
Strange how so many idiots can think that one person can destroy the entire country! Then again, I seems like a lot of you WANT to be dependant on the govt and the tax payers to support your lazy azzzes!
Good for you, you tell 'em. What have the Palins even done to any of us. Why do people hate them so much. They haven't done anything. Why is everyone so afraid of them. They should be more worried about the ones who are doing this type of bullying called mobbing and gangstalking and who are harassing, and bullying people.
It is the fault of the judges that palin went so far, she did good if it was a high school musical. you could also say it wasn't fair Jennifer Grey won either, since she has a dancing background the two cant even compare! The show is not fair and never will be.
I have to disagree with you, Tina, because look on the bright side, Jennifer Grey deserves to win, and we Palin haters beat Palin supporters like the Tea Party. If you disagree with me, don't watch "Dancing With the Stars" ever again.
Hello Jenifer is a STAR!! that is why it is called dancing with the stars.. not dancing w/"people in Igloos"
I am 100% agree with you
Tina – if you were paying attention – Jennifer does not have a dancing background. She learned her dance in the movie with Patrick just like anyone else does.
I have never watched it except on commercials and the "News". Never will. Stupid and certainly not entertainment. Get a life people. Palin is an idiot
Imagine .. if the judges didn't vote, Bristol would have won!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
U ARE SO TRUE. A PERSON WITH A DANCING BACK GROUNG SHOULD HAVE NOT BEEN ON THE SHOW; PERIOD...
TOM U R NOT HE BEST HOST. RYAN SEACREST IS... HOW THAT FOR YOU ....
Having starred in the movie "Dirty Dancing" does not make her a professional dancer.
BTW, Donny & Marie probably had far more dancing experience and Olympic figure skaters also probably had more of an edge.
Hi Tina! I agree, people who have had dancing experience should not be mixed with people who haven't. I think it should be one or the other – either all experienced, or none experienced. There are plenty of both out there who could be on the show. Unfortunately no one asks our opinion on this. Take care.
Jennifer Grey was a professional dancer/actor. My husband has had ruptured disc and back surgeries. She DID not have a ruptured disc and danced. All "put on" to get "attention"! Bristol and Kyle both were by-far the most improved. And,
Kyle was always running behind in judges scores too during this season, yet everyone is upset about Bristol! Grow up all Bristol bashers. She is not her Mom, she is Bristol and I admire her for not emotionally "caving in" to all her bashers.
Dang, all the hate from the left, and supposedly its the right who are the haters...hmmmmm
I agree, the judges were giving Bristol wayyy to much credit. She was about as talented as as a Lipizzon Stallion.
Yay! The right person, Jennifer, won. If Kyle had won, I would not have been disappointed! Enough said!
How is this a racist comment? Am I missing something?
tj – Learn how to read before you hit reply, please. Thanks.
The viewers got sick of the Palin effect and came through and voted last night. I did for the first time and I'm
happy with the results. I was afraid I'd have to stop watching the show. Jennifer and Derek are rightly the
Thank you MRS G, how is she a star? Maybe because she ends up in that tabloid rag "The Star", but that's about it. This chick has no discernible talents, enough of this madness already!
"The Palin Effect"...Look sorta' pretty and make believe you know some S#it...The voters will believe ANYTHING (Whether the voters are a judging panel or the American public).
Tom Bergeron said it all Monday night. 'Don't complain about the results if you didn't bother to vote." On Tuesday, he said the website crashed several times and lines were constantly busy with the heaviest voting in the show's history. I noticed that Mama Grizzly and family wasn't there last night. Bet all the rumors of death threats kept her away.
I'm glad Jennifer managed to stick it out to the end. She really looked like she was in pain though.
What are you people idiots? Palin's daughter clearly couldn't dance....was kept on the show for ratings and the political hoopla...she was one of the worst dancers on the show.
And your vote against her could be considered the anti-Palin effect? Examine your assumptions and perceptions.
You actually think viewers really vote in these things?
Barbara Bush said it best.....she hopes Sarah goes BACK home to Alaska...
Take Bristol with ya, Sarah!!!
@ Reason: Brenda's vote for someone other than Palin is not "anti-Palin effect." Before you exhort someone else to examine their assumptions and perceptions, examine your intellect. Your comment is incredibly stupid.
So glad that Jennifer and Derek won! Could it be that somebody involved with running the show was a Tea Party member?? So sick of the political partisanship happening in this country! As soon as I hear partisan rhetoric being crammed down our throats, I turn against the source! Maybe if everyone did, it would stop. Why else would Bristol Palin be on a show that is supposed to be for STARS? I won't watch it again if there are any contestants that do not fit the bill.
Yes, the right person won. But I feel that people with professional entertaining experience certainly have a big advantage over the others such as athletes and Ms. Palin. The last few years anyway some of the contestants seemed like they were professional dancers already. This year certainly Brandy and Jennifer had a leg up on everybody else from the beginning. I voted for Jennifer but I think part of the appeal of Bristol was that she worked hard and she was a non dancer in the beginning and improved a lot. Being Sarah's daughter was an advantage and a disadvantage depending on one's political views.
Want to see a great dance movie? Watch "They Shoot Horses Don't They" starring Jane Fonda.
Yay! I am so happy the best winner won Jennifer Grey! I would have loved to see Brandy in the finals as well.
Well, I'm a Liberal Momma Palin hater, but I though Bristol did pretty well. She really grew though out the season. However, she should never have made it past Brandy. But we have seen this before with Donnie Osmond. He was a sloppy dancer like Kyle Massey but a great showman just like Massey. Kyle should not have made it to the finals either. I just couldn't take him seriously. He just looked like a fat dough boy.
I think Mama Griz can see Alaska from her house... "This is flippin fun!"
So, you liked the expected outcome. After the judges had predetermined how they were told to vote by the show producers. Don't worry about them losing viewes next season, they don't. If you were not wise enough to notice, they have been concentrating on getting more African American viewers. They don't want the previous demographic groups watching anymore.
THE JUDGES AND THE PEOPLE SPOKE. NOW LET'S GET BACK TO THE IMPORTANT THINGS IN LIFE. ANYBODY WATCH THE CHICAGO WOLVES WIN LAST NIGHT?
If DWTS wants ratings, try get Anna Chapman , the hot readhead Russian spy. She will set your ratings on fire.
Oh, please....militarymom...nothing PARTISAN in YOUR comment, huh? At least don't be a hypocrite.
What won was the SAD STORY acting. I ruptured a disc in my back. IF she truly ruptured her disc, her real Dr. would have told her no way. There were no signs of pain or injury. Totally a scam to win the votes of millions. It worked. But I feel really ripped off. It will come out in the media there was no injury and only a pitifull ploy to win. Win at all costs. Just like politicians. Lie to them to get the votes.
I scratched the show off my watch list about four weeks ago when Palin should have really been gone. I found the idiot fans that would vote to keep a non-talent like Palin in the contest just for the heck of it even more disgusting than Bristol's lame dancing. I didn't watch it last night, and I won't be watching it next season.
I will never watch this show again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Some shows try to hide their biased opinions, but there were too many balls in the air, juggling at the same time, to know where they would fall, and if they would go where they were suppose to. Even the people involved in the show, and the contestants couldn't hide their discuss with Bristol. Thank goodness they decided not to go with her for the win. what a joke, of such a great show at the first......if it isn't broken, don't fix it.............
Again, nobody puts baby in the corner.
My wife and I are also happy that the talented Jennifer won. Bristol is about as talented as a Lippizon Stallion.
You must have special ways to vote since NO ONE EXCEPT THE JUDGES WERE ABLE TO VOTE LAST NIGHT. I am glad that it is over and Ms Palin came in in 3rd place. In the 3 groups that were dancing last night, I would have put her in second place but never did she do anything to rate here a number 1 place.
I also feel the proper person won DWTS. I too, was afraid that I would have to stop watching DWTS if that spotlight hungry family gained an unfair win. She was a sloppy dancer, and it amazes me how stupid many people in America are that would vote for her, she has no talent except apparently on her back! Her mother is a Tea Party Barbie Doll & God help us if these morons get into the White House! They should take Barbara Bush's advice and go back to the boonies of the Northwest!
I had no problem with Palin. She worked hard and greatly improved over the season. Of course, once she said winning would have been a way to give the middle finger to the people who hate her mother, I realized she – like her mama and sister – still have a long way to go to move up from white trash status.
You are a total waste of DNA – regardless of Palin – this has nothing to do with it.
Some you can't leave politics out of a young girl (Palin) great dance performance. She's beautiful and a joy to watch....we voted for her because her performance is great. I'd like to see the audience's vote on this last performance in addition to the panel of evaluators whom I believed were influenced by all the Libers in the audience.
Her mother is pathetic.. She has the right to be her own self without the hate for her mother !
Funny, I thought this was Dancing with the Stars, not Dancing with Someone who Only had 15 mins of Fame.
I am new to this show but I think it is disgraceful how you shove a contestant off just about hoe she is a "star"..leave politics out of it..were you that upset when the sow pig kate even made it on the show last season? From what I saw Bristol was the most improved Dancer of the entire season....
Hey instead of this garbage...How bout North Korea shelled South Korea today! We have American soldiers there! Im sure they could care less about Palin/Gray/ who should have won. Get a life its a freakin tv show!!! Its all for ratings and making you losers fight over who should have or who did win! grow up!!!
YAY! So excited the BEST dancer won....even though I really wanted to see Brandy in the final. I am so happy Jennifer won!
I still can't for the life of me understand the hatred toward the Palin's and in this case Bristol. As some have said what is the Palin affect. It's just a show not a matter of saving our economy which the Dems aren't doing a good job at. Bristol is barely 20 years old. What can't people leave Sarah Palin's children alone. Can you imagine if one person dared to say anything about Chelsea Clinton? We would have WWIII. What has our country come to. I tune in to be entertained and have been. NOthing less nothing more.
I am a conservative but I get news from CNN.com and FoxNews.com. There is this huge difference in approach for both. Even though liberals espouce to hate Sarah Palin there are minimum 3 articles about her everyday. What is that????????????????????
I tried to keep politics out of it, and although I don't like Palin's mom, I can admit she was the most improved dancer of the season. But that being said, she was still the worst of the last 4, and should have never been in the finals. She continually surprised me with her constantly improved dancing, but still, was the worst of the final 4. Jennifer rightfully got first, Brandi should have gotten 2nd, and Kyle 3rd. Either way, I am glad Palin didn't steal this from the true champ – Jennifer!
Americans are stupid for keeping Bristol Palin on the show. She can't dance. Not in the beginning nor at the end. This show is a mockery. Goes to show what politcal agendas can do for you. As they say, never mix politics and DANCING.
And you are a feast to the eyes?
I think Bristol is beautiful and am appauled that you would say something so hateful. Regardless if you agree with her views or not there is no need for that sort of behavior. I wonder how you look Mr. Perfect. You've done nothing but proove yourself pathetic and utterly rude.
Even 6 year old kid could dance better than Bristol in 11 weeks training, I have seen people dancing perfectly in couple of days training.
Kyle is FAT also – Einstein!!!
Bristol needs to lose the baby fat. And not from having a kid.
You said Libers. Dummy
I know it is not fair to Bristol but this is a dance show and human life is much more importaint.
Had she won some Democrat would have killed a producer, a judge, or Bristol herself. Thousands of Democrats have been making death threats to DWTS all week, even one Democrat in Wisconsin fired a shot gun at his tv when she made the top 3, a Democrat would have taken lives if she won, this is undeniable.
Bristol is a true American patriot. Because of her doing this show, thousands if not millions of Americans have been eductated on how evil, hateful, and dangerous Democrats are, to see that they wish death on an innocent young girl like Bristol because of her moms politics shows them the evil that they themselves support with each Democrat vote. Bristol put her life on the line to show Americans the truth about Democrats, that is very honorable.
Bristol Palin was not a joy to watch. She did improve, but she is not a good dancer. If you know anything about dance at all, she should not have been in the finals. This has nothing to do with being a liberal or conservative. Bristol should be in college instead of shaking her booty.
Nah sis, the dancing was actually terrible. Plus people dont like her because she is an irresponsible teenager who got knocked up... then let the evangels tell her she had to act like she was getting married so the politics looked better.
It has nothing to do w/the fact that she is a young beautiful girl, I give her a lot of credit for trying but, SHE CAN'T DANCE. She has no rhythm, and she had no grace on the dance floor. Did you question the voting when she stayed on the show? don't think so. What did you think of David Hasselhoff, did you think he could dance?? She was no better than him.
OMG @Devara that's just disgusting. Thanks for the mental image.
And @Rob...the point is–how can someone be called a 'True American Patriot' if they 'diss' America by advocating pulling away from it?
One difference is that Chelsea Clinton did not use her mother's power and influence to get on a TV show. Besides that, many of us think that the half governor of Alaska, epitomizes much of what is going wrong with our country: glorification of stupidity, valuing money over duty, the ends justifying the means, racial intolerance (at least saying things that are racially intolerant – I do not know if she really is), etc.
You are either too young to remember, or perhaps too old.....but when she was 13, Rush Limbaugh called Chelsea Clinton "the White House dog". John McCain called her ugly when she was 18. So what is your point? Fame brings out the worst in people and the Palin's will have to learn to take it like everyone else.
No we've been responding to the train wreck that is Bristol, teenage pregnancy, on again off again with bio dad, chase after this interview then that. Or is that just normal to you.
southernhrt: "Can you imagine if one person dared to say something about Chelsea Clinton? We would have had WWIII". You my friend have a short or very selective memory!! Even when Chelsea was just 12 it was open season! And the people I can remember publicly ridiculing a child who had frizzy red hair and braces – they weren't Liberals!
Hey southerhrt perhaps you do not remember rush limbaugh calling chesea clinton a dog when she was only 13 years old
It's called people are facinated by the Palins and can't get enough, even if they don't like them
Nobody "hates" Sarah Palin. That is just a conservative lie. Conservatives worship her and her family (see: hillbuzz.org), everyone else either laughs at her or is perplexed at her popularity.
Palin is in the news because the media loves to create drama I didn't watch this year because of Bristol. Jennifer Gray deserved to win when I ruptured a disk I couldn't hardly walk for 6months.
Who says that?
MarkinCA, Huh? Half governor? What is that? Glorification of stupidity, valuing mony over duty. What are you talking about? Don't we live in a capatilistic country? Watch the tv show 'border wars' on NatGeo and wake up.
And how did Bristol use her mother's fame to get on DWTS. Last I heard the producers of the show were in charge of collecting their celebrity staff. They deemed Bristol a star and wanted her to join their cast. Different individuals have different opinions of what a star is. Bristol is known by this country, so she has some degree of celebrity status regardless of how it was obtained or why she has it. Instead of feeling outrage towards a girl who is being treated less then human for reasons outside of her power why don't you try to move America forward in a positive direction. And if that means doing things differently then the Palin's think it should be done then do it in a constructive, less hateful way.
MarkinCA – and many of us think that CA is what is wrong with this country. They continually vote the SAME people into office, yet wonder why their State never has any money.
For a State that brags about being the 7th world's largest economy – you'd think the State wouldn't have budget problems. If the State really does bring in that much money, all that tells me is that the State Gov cannot manage it's money & spends more than it should.
Also, when has Sarah Palin ever said anything "racially intolerant?" Is this another of your liberal talking points that keeps getting thrown about, with not real substance behind it??
Be careful mark with the Chelsea Clinton comparison. All conservatives and dittoheads know that she is too ugly to be on TV.
Limbaugh : Everyone knows the Clintons have a cat. Socks is the White House cat. But did you know there is a White House dog?" And he puts up a picture of Chelsea Clinton. Chelsea Clinton was 13 years old.
You are correct. Chelsea Clinton is well educated and has prepared herself for the future. Instead of getting an education, Bristol is shaking her booty. Sarah Palin can afford to send Bristol to college. I don't see any evidence that Sarah is working hard to make her children self-sufficient.
I completely agree with you LA,CA. Also, if you got a call to be on Dancing with the Stars, wouldn't you take the offer? I would. Sounds like fun and hard work. Why not take what life throws at you? Who knows what will come out of it?
Garbage like DWTS is not "moving America in a positive direction". It's dragging us down into the muck and stupid.
No really some of us do really hate her.
i couldn't agree with you more, and besides Jennifer wasn't even fun to watch, she was to perfect to be in the show. completely unfair to other other dancers. and all the crying...so glad that i don't have to watch her again. I was a Team Kyle, but at the end Bristol was taking my votes. Until next season.
now ask yourself.... doesn't practice make better. She should have improved. She was left on the show for the final 3. if you had to dance for hours on end for at least 5-6 days a week would you not improve? This award does not go to the most improved. It goes to the BEST DANCER....
And what have you done with your life – nothing!!!! Stop Hate'n!!! Your a SAD person.
Hush now, Voice of Reason. You don't want to bring up that kind of stuff, or the producers at ABC will be calling Kim Jong-Il to see if he wants to shake his package on next season's DWTS.
Voice...see my post above (9:00 AM). You hit the nail squarely on the head!
Korea is what people should be talking about because that will affect our lives in a meaningful way if war breaks out there. After all, as SNL points out in their skits we owe China 800 billion dollars and China supports North Korea, things could get very ugly very fast. But hey, lets talk about palins instead, and how they're dumbing down America. Sorry people but American is already mostly dumb without help from the palins or tea party people. Priorities people!
Speaking of growing up, you apparently have an underdeveloped brain. This is the marquee blog. The real news will not really show up here. I'm not sure exactly what you were expecting when you came to this article, but you obviously missed the point. You should get a life.
And what exactly has Bristol Palin done with her life that makes her worthy of being called a "star?" Personally, I don't call getting knocked up at 17 anything special.
But Kim Jong-Il had his hit single "I'm so rone-ry" on Team America – he is truly a star!
Chelsea Clinton is an intelligent, educated young woman who has made good decisions in her life. She has prepared herself for the future, unlike the Palin family. Those of you who call her a dog evidentlly do not value the important things in life.
JV: So you are saying that Jennifer was no fun to watch because she was a good dancer???? I enjoyed Jennifer and Kyle. Sorry you were so bored by good dancing.
Chelsea at least grew into a beautiful, classy woman.
Bristol is, and will always be, fat classless, vulgar mouthed trailer trash.
Practice should make one better, but it should almost make one thinner and more in shape. Looks like an all around fail in Bristol's case.
True American patriot? A-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You are another shining example of just how dumb Palin leg humpers have become.
Time to adjust the antennae on the partisan-clearance-sale foil hat Doug!
We Americans are seriously dumb. It is no wonder the world laughs at us. We prioritize and glorify 'celebrities' rather then world issues which really matter
How's the view from your soapbox?
Yes, yes I am a feast for the eyes. However, in homage to the women who have fought to be recognized for things other than looks or popping out kids, I get by on my intelligence...not my stellar looks.
Pistol Bralin is just a ho, like her mudder. Her mudder was a mudder.
Chelsea is an example of what women have been striving for: capable and intelligent. Bristol is an example of what her mother taught her and what keeps women subjugated: trying to get by on looks and greed and attention whoring. The Palin women should be ashamed of themselves. You've Come A Long Way to keeping us in the dark ages, baby.
Well said. Good points.
Yeah @Doug...True American Patriot? You have got to be FLIPPIN' KIDDING ME. Have you ever heard of the Alaskan Independence Party? Oh, OK–I didn't think so. Well I respectfully request that you Google it, oh heck just allow me to give you the link: http://www.akip.org/. Or how 'bout you look up Joe Vogler, their founder? Yeah, it's pretty scary, this group of TERRORISTS advocate seceding from the US and becoming their own country. There's a video somewhere (still looking for it, I'll post the link when I find it) of Her Highness giving the group a video address before the '08 election praising them and their mission. Oh and I do believe '1st Dude' his Tod-ness is still a card carrying member.
This certainly NOT fit my personal definition of 'True American Patriot'. Not in my America, anyway.
"terrorists" – oh, that's funny. You mean like William Ayers, Obama's buddy? They're close enough that he started his political career in Ayer's home. They're close enough that he reviewed one of Ayer's books, "A Kind and Just Parent: The Children of Juvenile Court" – calling it "A searing and timely account of the juvenile court system, and the courageous individuals who rescue hope from despair."
Their relationship sounds a weeeee bit more than "just a guy from the neighborhood."
As far as seceding from the Union – if Obama keeps encroaching on State's rights, I predict more States will want to secede from the Union. Perhaps we can have a "United Socialist States" and a "United States" – that way all the libbies can live in their utopia, funny thing is, nobody would work because everyone would want to leech off of the other person.
