Obsessions: Loving to hate Bristol Palin

When it comes to Bristol Palin, folks are drinking gallons of the Haterade.

The younger Palin appears to be well on her way to becoming almost as big a lightening rod as her political mother, despite never having run for office herself. She's been criticized for everything from her romantic choices to her skills  - or lack thereof - on “Dancing with the Stars," which she didn't even win, by the way.

There's even been conspiracy theories surrounding her participation in the show (allegedly Mommy made her do it!) and the voters who kept her in the running right up to the finals (allegedly some swift dialing Tea Party members!).  You know things are bad when former "American Idol" contestant,  Sanjaya, has to come to your defense.

So why so much venom directed at a single, teen mom from Alaska? One need only peruse CNN’s Marquee blog for glimpses of some of the complaints.

"My girlfriend watches that show and I saw the season finale," wrote one using the name Mike. "Bristol sucked, no way should she have made it that far, she was definitely having strings pulled."

"She did get fat though, " said one going by the name Sharp Knees about Palin's appearance while on "DWTS." " She wasn't that hefty even after she had her kid. Put down the fork!!!"

Ouch! Just imagine if Palin had won.

And it’s not just fans of the dancing competition who have slammed Palin. MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann named Palin “the (not really) worst person in the world” for her duties as an abstinence spokesperson given that she has a child out of wedlock.

“This is like saying George Bush kept us safe except for that 9/11 thing which doesn’t count,” he said. “Bristol Palin, abstinence role model…this time.”

Comedian Margaret Cho took to her blog to claim that Palin had been forced to dance by her mother (a claim the younger Palin refutes) who was allegedly looking for some good publicity to counter the media surrounding her daughter’s unplanned pregnancy.

Comic/reality television star Kathy Griffin was recently booed at the VH1 "Divas Salute the Troops" concert for joking that Palin “is the only contestant in the history of the show to actually gain weight ... She gained, like, 30 pounds a week. I swear to God, it was fantastic. She's like the white Precious."

Palin has even been the subject of some intra-party dissing. Meghan McCain used "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" as her platform to criticized Bristol Palin for not voting in the mid-term election.  "I think a lot of women worked really hard to give us the right to vote," McCain said. "Anyone that doesn't vote is just ridiculous."

To think, the pair could have been first daughter and vice daughter had things worked out differently in 2008.

So has Bristol Palin caught enough flack and should people now cut her some slack? Or is it only just the beginning the more she remains in the limelight?

The Palins are raking in the $$ while you morons whine about them as if they impacted your lives in one way or another. What a bunch of losers you are.

    good lord people..... She's a kid. she's made a mistake or two. She seems to have learned from it. She's going forward with all the gusto she can.

    If you think she's 'fat", gosh.... that's pathetic. Ms Palin had a helluva lot more guts than most of your keyboard heros – she actually had the balls to go out and perform in front of millions, without caring that she had an extra 16 oz of love , and didn't fit your narrowminded misogynistic politically driven thought-free expectations of what a girl from the last American frontier should look like. In the real world, Ms Palin is extremely beautiful. In your la-la land of stupid, she's still a beautiful woman, but you have so little understanding of reality you wouldn't know reality if it stepped up and kicked you in the slats.

    Mother and daughter are both sad representatives of America. If they can't handle the bad press then get out of the kitchen, and get back to fish camp. Ego and money is what drives these people. Whether its quitting their jobs as president or a dental assistant (for more money and fame). IGNORANCE is their strong point. Attention is what they crave. You betcha. wink wink...

    Bristol is your average teen mom : dumb, under peer pressure (explains the eating alot part) and in serious need of direction.

    I just feel terrible now that Ive read how bad our stinging liberal humor hurts all your liitle rethuglican feelings. I have nothing against the little palins, although its pretty clear Bristol wasnt much of a dancer and certainly not the second best on the show.If you believe that I have some trickledown for you. I just want to apologize for the pain and torment we lazy nasty libs send your way. I mean its not like one of your senators screams liar at the president during the state of the union or conservative supreme court justice gets all bent and shakes his head and waves his arms and hands during the state of the union when somebody called him for a clearly biased decision...{allowing corporations to give whatever they want to their favorite candidate}. You guys just wouldnt do that sort of thing would ya, thats just those nasty progressives who do that type stuff. And speaking of ramming things down people throats....how bout that tax cut the rethuglicans got for all their rich benefactors, you know the ones doing all the hiring the last couple years as their corporations report record earnings....you woudnt campaign on the deficit and then double it with your first vote would you? And you wouldnt go against the very desires and wishes of the men and women who fight for you and say you know better than them and not allow gays in the military even after they {marines, sailors, soldiers and airmen}said they were fine with it. You wouldnt tell lies about death panels, and immigrants and global warming and......well.......wait a minute, you've did all that and more. So take your self righteous indignation and cram it in the hole where you keep your conservative head most of the time. That way maybe you wont hear the rest of us trying to move this country forward.

    Lets all face it one way or the other. Some of you complain some of you praise her.
    So stick to the facts and lets keep them honest.
    Bristol is a young woman lost in space no education follows what her mother dictates for the love of money.
    she can not dance, the only reason she reached the finals was beacuse the show was rigged with the votes backed by her Mother Sarah Palin.
    Bristol can always show her finger ( rudely) saying this is for the people who hate her and Sarah Palin. it only show that she is uneducated and values they have in their family.
    Her Mother Sarah. Well there are no words that can be narowed down to explain what she represent, other than she is uneducated 5 different schools to have a degree, no knowledge of geography or where countries are situated, she lowers the level of education.
    And she wants to run to reach the highest office in the world, and here we are giving so much attention to this person, I do question what is happening to this wonderful country of ours????? who ever is supporting her seems that they are on the same level as Palin, remember I mentioned uneducated low IQ!!!!!!!!

    You know what? She's a person and she has her beliefs, which are called "beliefs" because she believes in them. I do not share her beliefs, and I'm not fond of her mother, but this girl isn't guilty of any of the outrageous things her mother is guilty of. (And no, I'm not talking about scandals real or imagined, I mean things we saw with our own eyes, like practically fostering a lynch mob mentality at Obama's expense during the campaign). She IS telling teens something I consider counter-productive and silly, but she believes what she's saying. I sure wish we could get back to an atmosphere of respectful debate in this country, but I suspect that ship has sailed.

    Why are people spending so much time ripping on this beautiful young woman? I give her a lot of credit for what she has done at her young age. Bristol Palin was crucified by our beloved media when the world found out she was pregnant, and she turned it around and became an activist and devoted her time to helping other young people. She made a mistake and turned into a positive. How many of you people that are complaining about her have done ANYTHING to help other people? She made a mistake and because of that mistake she has a wonderful son, and in the process if she has only helped one other young person, in my mind and I am sure in Bristol Palin's mind it is worth it. Ms Palin also put herself on the line by competing in DWTS. I know I would never be able to do what she did on that show, and I would be interested in how many of you negative morons could do better. Why don't you spend your time doing something worthwhile with your time instead of railing on Bristol and her family. I think Bristol Palin is a great role model. Whatever mistakes she made in the past, she has more than made up for. As far as her gaining weight or being fat? Who cares? I think she is a beautiful young woman, and shame on you for even bringing such an immature thought like that into the picture. It only makes you look more ignorant. I'm in Bristol's corner and I hope she does well in her life. You people need to get a life and leave her alone.

    Ok all you middle classers out there. Here's the solution to becoming a millionaire and receiving those huge tax breaks. Have a dumb- for a mom, a jack- for a dad, ignore your children so one gets knocked up, and don't mention them unless they benefit your cause at the time like the one that got knocked up by the guy who was just getting his rocks off, whine, whine, whine; you have to whine and blame the media for your stupidity and lack of talent, because the media will then defend themselves (or have you on for interviews) and glenn beck will come to your rescue. Omg! This stunt will keep you in the limelight for a long time and you will write a book, spread mad lies and hate, get your own reality tv show, get invited to speak at political rallies and to ladies groups and on and on. That is all you need to do to become a millionaire. Maybe they are not so stupid after all.

    What is wrong with this country that we use the word "hate" against individuals we disagree with - I'm sick and tired of it!! We all know that politicians have their own personal agendas - they want power, position, and money. The greed in this country is sending us into a downward spiral and the average working stiff is too tired, too stressed, and not informed enough to step and make changes in this country. The people with integrity and who really care about this country will never run for public office. The Democrats want socialism so I can work to help support those who just want to sit on their butts and wait for a check from the Government!! Leave the Palins alone - quite frankly I thought Bristol was a bit of fresh air and didn't take herself too seriously.

    Why are people surprised? We build people up to tear them down. Welcome to America. Many people loath those who are famous merely for being famous (i.e. Paris Hilton, Kardashians, Snooki etc.). Not to mention, her mother is one of the most devisive figures in the media today, who on one hand says her children are to be left alone, yet on the other parades them in front of the media. It is the perfect storm for people to dislike her. Also, let's not forget the similar flack stars like Jessica Simpson took for weight gain, from similar comedians. Why are we shocked at this. If Ms. Palin didn't want the "star treatment" with her star treatment, she should have stayed in Alaska.

    I dont hate Bristol Palin. I do not care about her baby daddy, I don't care about her weight. I dont care about who her mommy is. I don't care that sheis a conservative Republican. I care about the bigoted filth these Palin children have posted online and the arrogance wiith which they carry themselves with when they get called out for their hateful behavior. It seems to me this family has a hereditary gene for complaining about others complaining about them when the public has the god given right to do so: You enter the public sphere, YOU BETTER BE PREPARED. Stop complaining.

    This is a non-political post even though I am a Democrat. I would like to think that my post is about common courtesy and decency. What has Bristol Palin ever done to anyone????? Bristol was a great contestant and pulled in the viewers, so she was well worth what she was paid. If she had been anyone else, we wouldn't be inundated with all the negative posts about what a poor dancer she was and that the vote was "fixed", which I don't believe. Bristol improved greatly during the weeks of the contest, and, yes, she did indeed deserve her third place finish, because she was voted there by her fans, just like all the other contestants. Bristol is an absolutely beautiful girl and her weight is her business and has nothing to do with anyone else. She even has those gorgeous long, slender legs of a dancer. At least her beauty is real and not plastic. And if her mother has ever hurt anyone, I certainly haven't heard of it; not to mention the fact that Bristol should never be judged by her mother nor anyone else! She should be judged on her own merits, not by other people projecting their faults onto her. One would think that no one on here has ever heard of a teenager becoming pregnant. What about all the billions of other young girls since the beginning of time who have become pregnant? And do the men responsible for all these cases get off scott free? One would think with all the education available to all of us and with our enlightenment throughout the years that our thinking would have advanced past the "cave people" stage; however, it seems that a lot of us are still racing backwards in time. Wake up and smell the Fairness! Janet

    So pathetic people. Bristol is not being shoved down anyone's throats. Nobody forced any of you haters to read this article. You chose to and based on your comments, you have a pretty freaking weird obsession for this girl to waste the time and energy to spew hateful words as though you actually have a place to be so judgmental. If you truly didn't care, or want others to care, you just wouldn't read it. It's as simple as that. The fact is, Bristol will continue to make the headlines as long as you people continue to publicly hate on her in such a vicious way. It's completely your fault. If people just let perform in the silly dancing show peacefully and spent their time focusing on real issues, this would be a non-issue by now. Unfortunately none of you seem to have the tiny level of intelligence it would take to see this so we will continue to hear about Bristol, despite you "hating" it so.

For a woman who wants to run the country, Sarah Palin can't even seem to run her own household. Bristol got knocked up, then got caught after hours and underage in a NYC club, then schlepped her way through a dumb dancing show that was obviously rigged in her favor by teabag voters dialing in, while Mom slays animals and says stoogy stuff on her lame show. Mom, the quitter, that is.

However the level of hate and venom spewed at a teenage girl for no reason other than who her mother is, which of course she can't control, is pathetic. Secondly, spare me the "she's fat" crap. Please. Most of the people typing that are likely the same disgustinly obese people who stuff their face with Big Macs every day for lunch.

    DWTS "job description" for Bristol Palin summed it all up – "teenage activist". Huh?

    What she's been most active at is premature procreation and capitalizing on Mommy's profile.

    And I'd say the contempt reserved for Bristol is only a fraction of what Mommy Dearest has in store for her should she drink her own KoolAid and decide she can make a run for President.

    She will be soundly trounced ... and maybe that will finally bring an end to the 15 minutes of fame they've all been over-capitalizing on.

    Watching the Palin Clan is like a Ma & Pa Kettle Horror Flick. Where Ma & Pa were endearing in their ignorance and lack of "sophistication" – Sarah and her brood are simply pathetic.

    I don't hate Bristol Palin, but I don't respect the way she milks her mother's celebrity instead of earning her way through life. All the attention and opportunities she gets are obviously the result of her mother's celebrity because there's nothing special about Bristol. She's not pretty, smart, accomplished or talented enough to earn this attention and the many opportunities she's been given. They've just been given to her with no effort or accomplishment on her part. Why should I respect that, and how is that consistent with her family's supposed belief in self-reliance and earning your way?

By clicking on this link, then commenting each and everyone of you who are complaining 'leave her alone' are adding to the popularity of these kinds of articles. Pretty simple. Blame your selves.

    As long as this family continue to seek face-time in the national media, they are asking for some criticism. Goes with the territory; you have to be willing to take the good with the bad. Can't have it both ways. They bring it on themselves. That includes Bristol who at 20 with a child is no longer a child herself. She appears to be handling criticism just like her mama does – by portraying herself as a professional victim. That ole crap is growing tiresome – either take your lumps like other public figures do or go home and live private lives

    Why can't everyone just leave her alone? In case you haven't noticed, she's a single mom who probably needs a way to make $$ to support her child since the worthless father obviously isn't going to. Thanks to her Mom it's not like she can just go get a job at the local supermarket or doctor's office and go unrecognized. If people want to pick on someone they should start with themselves and leave everyone else out of it.

    I think Bristol will be more effective once she stops being someone else's puppet and develops a brain and opinion of her own. She should go to college (NOT in Alaska) and grow up away from the limelight and her parents.

    Right now, while she appears to be a really sweet and down-to-earth girl, she's got nothing to offer given her celebrity status; her bulb is just a couple Watts larger than Levi Johnston's and that's not saying much.

    Just because someone puts themselves out there for ridicule doesn't mean that you have to do it. She did not go beg to be on the show, they approached her. Does anyone really blame Bristol for taking more money than she could probably make in 4-5 years, just for going on a dancing show? Many of the people knocking her wouldn't turn that money down. Its not her fault she is not famous..again THEY asked HER. So far I don't see any reason for ridiculing her. She admitted she wasn't a dancer. Granted she is not Ginger Rogers, but she was definitely not the worse dancer that has ever been on the show. She did a decent job and continued to improve each week. I still see no reason for ridicule. She "seemed" like a nice person and took all the criticism with a smile and gracefully. All that being said. I am still looking for a reason for all the criticism. Again, I am not a Palin supporter, but this is just how I see it.

    Well its nice to see we will never change and always look for the worst in someone to make us feel better about ourselves. There is one point that is true, we wouldn't know Bristol if her mom was not known. The thing is i have taken dancing lessons and know its looks easier then it actually is. Its also nerve racking to stand in front of a crowd let alone knowing millions of people will be watching you and critisizing. When it comes to sports, politics or any other action, we are all arm chair warriors and think we can do better. I also think her pushing for abstinance show she is trying to help young people learn from her mistake. I would like each one of you too walk to the closest mirror and look at yourself and see how perfect you are. If you would all just take off your rose coloured glasses and watch the dancing and not the person, you would see that she shouldn't have made it as far as she did, but its the votes that counted of the public, just like when Bush got in for a second term. I am just glad I am not on th show to have all you PERFECT people critisize me.

She is also a great role model as someone who does take risks, like dancing in front of the whole country..."If she can do that," my 16 year old says, "I guess I can suck it up and not worry so much about speach class, at least the whole country isn't waiting for me to fail."

    Why is our country so accepting of adult bullying? The news has been telling stories of teen bullying and how it needs to stop. Celebrities have made PDA's on the subject – and yet at the same time it is celebrities who are GROWN ADULTS that are doing the bullying to each other. I am not pro-Palin whatsoever, I am pro-respect to all humans – young, old, fat, skinny, rich, poor, Catholic, Muslim, gay, straight, Democrat, Republic. It's pathetic that these celebrities use public venues to BULLY other people and as a nation, we sit back and let it happen. It's disgusting and people like Kathy Griffin (who I adore) should be held accountable for their actions. That kind of bullying is unacceptable and disgusting.

It is shocking that CNN would permit this kind of aggression towards a 20-year-old who has done nothing to hurt anyone. Those who are delighting in hurting Bristol Palin, because they may not embrace her family's political views are seriously disordered human being who are jealous of her beauty and grace. Regarding her becoming pregnant by the teen-aged boy she thought she loved___there but for the Grace of God go most women.

    Think about it. Here's a young lady who was unwillingly thrust into the spotlight (along with the consequences of her teenage bad judgment.) She's been the subject of widespread public ridicule, based on politics (not hers) except for when she's been bullied by media and immature idiots who spew their venom online, hiding behind anonymity. Here's how I see it. The girl is trying to do something positive, by speaking to groups of teenagers about the consequences of her actions, and hopefully persuading (at least) some of them that being a teenage parent isn't all a party. As far as DWTS goes, it appears that she was paid to the tune of $365,000.00 for her stint on that show. It was a very smart decision for her to go on that stupid show, knowing full well that she'd be the subject of further ridicule. Because, she now has enough money in the bank that she now has a number of options, considering that she's more financially secure than most of you losers with nasty-ass bullying blubber-lips.

    Bristol is a young woman, who is attractive and taking advantage of the 15 minutes of fame allotted by the media. She obviously had fun on DWTS. I listened to her on Jay Leno and she sounded mature enough.

    I don't have a problem with her having fun or having her mother's back.

    I wish CNN and the other media outlets would back off. For instance, on election night, with Sarah's name apearing no where on any ballot, she was the center of discussion on CNN's coverage. WHY ??!!

The boyfriend moves in, the parents are away racing snowmobiles or being Governor and its a surprise she gets pregnant? Come one – I am surprised all the daughters aren't pregnant.

    Between Sarah and Bristol, there isn't much to like. Sarah is a quitter (Alaska much?), media obsessed, drama queen. Her handlers must get paid pretty well to just regurgitate the waste that comes out of Sarah's mouth and spin it as victimization. She is a teabagger...and I'm not talking about the political kind. Bristol's "infomercials" are pathetic. She and her mother are the face of hypocrisy. I know they are laughing all the way to the bank, not much to hate there. They have made idiocy a profession.

    If Bristol wanted to be a teen activist, why not make her cause getting young people to vote? Oh, wait–Bristol didn't get around to voting. Seems she was too busy shaking her fat, untalented ass on DWTS. It's bad enough for ANYONE not to exercise their right to vote—especially in an important election like these midterms were—but when you are a celebrity and your mom is a prominent politician, there's no excuse. Brisiol couldn't even be bothered to use birth control when she knew this could have affected her mother's career. They are both lazy, ignorant slobs.

      Actually chuck, if you were a liberal, you would be far less likely to be getting government assistance or handouts. You should visit the census bureau website. If you did, you'd know that the most welfare dollars go to white rednecks in the southeast and appalachia (republicans). And you would also know that the blue states contribute the most taxes, while the red states get more of the goverments spending. If you actually bothered to look at statistics you would know that the blue states support the red states, and that most of the wefare dollars are spent in the red states. But that would require that you read and think. We elitist educated liberals know that is a challenge for Republicans. It's hard to learn to read when you aren busy collecting government handouts and attending wraslin' and nazgar events.

    Just who is Bristol anyway? Answer: absolutely a NOBODY. The media has elevated this person to celebrity status when in fact she is nothing but a prime example of an extremely poor excuse to be placed in an implied role model status. Her mother is the famous person, not Bristol. I'm sick of the attention she gets from the media. She hasn't earned it nor does she deserve it.

    As long as Bristol and her mother keep jumping in front of cameras and on the internet saying stupid, hateful things, then it's likely that others will reply in kind.

    WAY TO KEEP YOUR PRIORITIES IN ORDER, AMERICA!!! I volunteer at a Ronald McDonald House for families with sick children as well as a homleless shelter in southeast Dallas on weekends where there are actually children coming in to sleep alone, no home to go to. We need more volunteers!!! Yet, the interest of so many is the irrelevant life of a person who would just be another rich single mother if it weren't for her own overly-opinionated mother. Here's some advice, take all the effort taken to gossip about things that don't matter and instead volunteer at the thousands of shelters for the homeless and the less-fortunate that are in need of help.

    If Bristol doesn't like criticism she shouldn't have gone on the show. She could have said "no". As we know Bristol has a problem saying no to her mother, Levi, a second helping, interviews, etc. If you accept Interviews expect every mistake you have made to be brought to light and made fun by all the people who didn't make the same stupid mistakes. Pregnancy before marriage when you and your mother keep talking about abstinence is a stupid mistake. Many woman do not have children outside of marriage. Many woman do have a child out of wedlock but Americans usually categorize those as dumb, uneducated, backwaters people on welfare.

    Kathy Griffin was making a joke. That is her job. Did the joke bomb? Yes. Would people be attacking Griffin if she said the same of Snooky, no. The reasons Griffin was booed was the joke was mean spirited and people in the crowd were supporters of her mother. When Sarah was booed at a Flyers game for dropping the puck was it Sarah's fault for using the game as a political platform? If your answer is no then you are a hypocrite and Palin supporter.

    McCain's daughter has the same opinion as many patriotic Americans, to not vote is the same as giving the country away. I would say McCain is being a "Real" American (as Sarah likes to say) and Bristol is being a naive idiot that should stop seeking the limelight if she doesn't want to be criticized.

    I am not a rah rah Palin fan and I had already decided before watching DWTS that I was going to dislike Bristol. After a while she seemed like a sweet young lady and I changed my opinion of her. Sure she made a mistake, but she seems like a good mother so I think that should be all that matters about that. I give her props that she improved a lot with her dancing. Do I think she should have made it as far as she did...no. But, it didn't hurt anyone. There is only one winner and the right person won and that is all that matters. Do I think she deserves all these nasty comments and criticism...no. She didn't do anything wrong, so why all the hatred? All she did was do the best she could to learn and perform the dances. Its a contest where people call in. Its not her fault the Tea Party or anyone else flooded votes for her. Big deal, she gained some weight. Again, no reason to be so hateful. There is already so much negativity and hate in this world. Why aim it at this young girl who has done nothing.

    I think the reason most people hate the Palins is because we resent their celebrity and camera seeking obsessions and having the media cram this Palin slop down our throats. The truth is the entire family is nothing more then a cave of weird people, dysfunctional creepiness, and they are nothing short of trash.
    I have been able to predict EVERY SINGLE move this family would make before it happened. Its all a scripted repeat of the same crap we have endured over and over again. So here is my next prediction.......Palin will finally admit she is running for President very soon and the next big gig that she will pursue is making sure she gets as much camera time when the royals wed in a few months. You watch...she will be all over that. Huge.

Second, Bristol is a mom and for her to be wanting to flip people the finger, and say all those things that her and her sister said on facebook is just flat out wrong. Bristol needs to be a role model for her son, period. She sits there and tries to be a spoksperson for teen pregnancy but she kind of missed the boat on that one, I mean that is like Lindsey Lohan ( I hope Lindsey gets better and all) being the spoksperson for a " Don't drink and do drugs commercial, no one is going to listen. I had a friend who got pregnant in high school and you know what, she finished high school and graduated with me and the rest of the class and all the while worked and took care of her son without any assistance, (including the father ) except while she was in school she had a babysitter, and when she worked, thats all. I admit though that I can't stand her mother. when she ( Sarah) speaks its like nails on a chalkboard. What is really scary is that so many people actually think that she is smart, Yikes!!!!

Are you people so entrenched in your political ideologies that you have to resort to personal attacks on a young girl? She was asked to participate on DWTS, and she did.

      Base cynicism as hip, sophisticated badge is so last month, Conan. Being the insider you are, I'd have thought you'd be the first to realize that Lennon's abilities as lyricist and social scribe advanced somewhat between "Meet the Beatles" and December 8, 1980. Certainly it helps to be Ghandi when speaking of positive cultural impacts different people have made throughout time, and yet surprisingly, one doesn't have to be to still make a slight contribution. History's filled with 'em, including song writers. The measure is this: no matter what YOU personally think of Lennon, and I assure you, no one cares, will anyone be talking about Bristol Palin 30 years from now, in a conversation that doesn't have anything to do with her mother or her tiitts? Hmm. Doubtful.

    I watch DWTS, & I tried to like her, but the girl has no personality. Her not losing any weight, showed her lack of work ethic. She claimed to have worked just as hard as anybody, but if she had, she would've lost the extra weight. That's how the show's regime works. She admitted to not voting in a 'real' election, but begged viewers, to call in & vote for her. & she's the spokes person for abstinence? So... she gets to have her fun, but not anybody else? When the going got tough, on DWTS, she blamed the 'haters. blah, blah, blah...She enjoyed her little facebook rant, & then gave a backhanded apology, for her slurs & bullying...but, she resents being bullied for her weight? again, she doesn't hold herself accountable, to her own rules. Mainly, Bristo needs to just grow up & try to see the world from a different set of eyes. Some people don't like Bristor-not because WE're 'haters, '-but because we think SHE'S a hater.l

    I wonder how many people commenting from behind their computers have actually stopped to think before they type. If any of you were in Bristol's shoes, wouldn't you have jumped at Dancing with the Stars? It was a rare opportunity that paid well and helped the young mother financially. Why all the ignorant comments, especially about her weight? I watched the whole season and no, she didn't deserve to win. Her personality wasn't even controversial–quite mild and congenial, actually. Every week she appeared to do her best and showed a commitment beyond what many young people might have in that situation. She's young. Maybe she didn't fully realize how much of a target she would become when she agreed to do DWTS. For all we know, she may have thought she'd last a week on the show. Grow up, people, and stop with all the conspiracy theories and Tea Party-bagging comments. And for the record, I'm not even Republican - just a regular person who feels bad for the girl and the stress she's now under - and for no good reason.

      As long as this family continue to seek face-time in the national media, they are asking for some criticism. Goes with the territory; you have to be willing to take the good with the bad. Can't have it both ways. They bring it on themselves. That includes Bristol who at 20 with a child is no longer a child herself. She appears to be handling criticism just like her mama does – by portraying herself as a professional victim.

    Never a dull day with Sarah or Bristol Palin!

    The media cannot get enough of the controversial, thriving and sensational mama bear and her budding TV offspring, Bristol.

    No wonder Sarah’s colleague, Mike Huckabee, is crying foul like the rest of America – every little tweet or face-book post is reported in magnitude, whether it’s relevant or irrelevant. Heck, I think Sarah Palin is more popular than Angelina Jolie and Bristol is now more popular than Kathy Griffin.

    By all means Sarah /Bristol keep tweeting and posting; your ingenious and clever PR antics are not just working but are seemingly lucrative. After all, the media can’t get enough of you …If the Kardashian’s can cash in – why not others?

    If Levy could benefit from this – I don’t see why Britol shouldn’t take advantage after all – she’s single mom and needs to earn to take care of her child.

    I honestly feel sorry for Bristol. I am not a fan of DWTS but tuned in a couple of times to see what all the Palin fuss was about. The poor girl looked terrified. Her mother is a barracuda who lied to her family on the way to being announced as the VP candidate. She lied to them and didn't care whether they wanted her to be VP or not, and her teenage daughter was pregnant at the time. This tells you how much she cares about her own family – how does anyone think she is capable of being VP or even worse Pres.??? The woman is ruthless and stupid. Bad combo!! Feel sorry for ANY of her family members!

    The one reason I dislike the whole family is the mother is an idiot but some people believe she was rail road and that she really is smart, give me a break. Another reason is she was not the first teen mom who got pregnant but the way the public act it was not her fault she got knocked up. Give me a break there is too much birth control out there where you don't have to be pregnant unless you want to.

Unfortunately, the Palin family falls into this category, as do the clowns on Jersey Shore, Paris Hilton, and the majority of 'reality' tv stars. When they go away, or even use their celebrity for something respectable other than peddling books, DVD's, and whatever they're trying to use their 15 minutes to cash in with this week, then maybe people will have a more positive impression of them.

      These two tarts spend every waking moment try to attract every second of attention they can get.. They deserve everything they get. If she had quietly returned to Alaska and served out her term as Governor, nobody would be attacking them. Instead, she quit on the people of Alaska, went on a publicity tour, wrote two books, started a reality show, pimped out her daughter and makes regular appearances on Fox news.

      She's not a teenager – she's 20. She put herself out in public like anyone else who wants to be noticed. Sometimes the attention is good and sometimes it's bad. If' she'd stayed home to raise her son no one would have even noticed her. If she develops an eating disorder because of comments she's read online she can blame her mother for parading her around as an unwed pregnant teenager.

    I don't think it's necessary to take criticism of anyone to a personal level. But, if she continues to voluntarily market herself as a potential celebrity, then she has to accept that doing so puts her in the public arena. As such, she should expect criticism–fair or unfair–and she can no longer claim the "kids are off limits" shield. (Which is a little hard when you're nearly 20 and the mother of a toddler anyway.)

      I absolutely agree. With the exception of the few people making mean-spirited comments about her weight, I think the majority of people dislike what she stands for, not her personally. Specifically:

      1. Somehow she is considered a celebrity when the only thing she is famous for is getting pregnant out of wedlock. Some might respond that she is famous for having a famous mom, but why is it that we haven't heard anything about her other siblings? There is something deeply disturbing about being celebrated for messing up, while her more responsible siblings are completely ignored.

      2. The people celebrating her and her mom are supposedly the party of morals. Imagine the outcry from Republicans if Chelsea had gotten pregnant out of wedlock, yet somehow they tried to sell the storyline that Bristol's pregnancy proved the strong values of the Palins. The was a great Daily Show clip where they showed Bill O'Reilly's reaction to Brittany Spears getting pregnant out of wedlock (he bashed her mom, saying that the pregnancy reflected a parenting failure, and demonstrated the amoral culture of Hollywood), and then showed Bill's reaction to Bristol's pregnancy (saying that her decision to keep the baby – which Spears obviously did too – proves the strong morals of the family). Likewise, Palin paraded Bristol around, as if getting pregnant is some accomplishment.

      3. Bristol somehow turned Dancing with the Stars into a political referendum. I would imagine most viewers watch to see good dancing. By all accounts she was terrible, yet somehow it became a political statement to vote for her.

      4. Bristol openly said abstinence education does not work, and then went out and proved it. Yet somehow she is now a spokesperson for abstinence. If you are going to shove a Palin down our throat, why not at least pick one of the responsible ones?

      Again, I have nothing against her personally. She seems like a young kid who made a mistake, but was smart enough to realize that she can inexplicably make tons of money off of her mistake. I just resent her getting shoved down our throat because of her failures.

    Unfortunately, because of her mother, we will be treated to her for awhile yet to come. Personally, her behavior is ot so different from any other smal town teenager, so why all the fuss, other than who her mother is. Does anyone really expect hr to behave that much differen from the norm? That would be a story.

    It amazes me how many people need to critize others to "make themselves" look better. I wish people would leave her alone, she is just a young girl trying to figure out life. We have all made mistakes but that shouldn't mean being condemed for them let alone in front of a national viewing community. My message to Britol would be to stay strong, it is just like high school when all the "popular" girls have to make themselves feel better by making everyone else's life hell, then you get older and they are the ones whose lives are a mess.

      You do realize that what you said pretty much describes Sarah Palin, right? Maybe that's one of the reasons so many people can't stand the family. The mother goes around making inflammatory statements, when she usually doesn't know what she's talking about and has no credibility because she couldn't even hack a full term as governor. She uses all sorts of the mainstream media to help promote her books and whatever else she's peddling, and then whines about a big media conspiracy against her when the media rails on her for her factually inaccurate and irresponsible statements.

      I do agree with you that attacking her is very petty, and attacking her weight is just mean spirited – but this is the blogosphere, and civility is long gone. However, remember too they are a very public family with a VERY inflammatory mother. Personally, I would much prefer leaving Bristol alone and corner Sarah on policy and position – attacking a person is not debating.

      How would Sarah handle the START treaty with Russia, what is Sarah's position on South Korea, and hundreds of other questions she has managed to dodge.

They will see what we alreay know – Sara Palin is a FRAUD! The bashing will get a whole lot worse. Sarah brought on this climate of hate when she stepped out on that stage in 2008 calling President Obama every name in the book. She and her family are getting what they deserve.

The reason she is on DWTS and her dad will be on next season is to keep the PALIN name in the American Psyche this is all a ploy to help mama be the president in 2012. All i have to say is if she can't enforce her own "morals and Rules" in her own house (she preaches abstanince till marriage) how can anyone expect her to enforce the rules of a nation?!

      I think you have been watching too much of the "fair and balanced" Fox News. I'm sure that the Palins would make fine friends or neighbors, and patriotism is always an admirable quality...but she is about as qualified to hold any sort of political office as my cat! Actually, my cat has a more pleasant speaking voice. The fact that she has progressed as far as she has on the national political landscape just proves that we citizens are dazed and confused. Her daughter does not deserve any of this – not the attention and not the obvious manipulation by her mother. What she deserves is a kick in the pants to get back to taking care of her child and doing something productive with her life.

    Be careful about what you say about Mrs Palin. Remeber our community organizer president thinks we have 57 states. Doesn't he have a degree from some big time ivoy league school?

    Wow, most of you people posting are just plain stupid and hateful. Really? Hate someone running for office? Why? Why not just...oh I don't know, not vote for them? Instead, you hate them, wish horrible things on these people? Oh well, good think I don't listen or follow any of the posts on any news site, to full of hate and stupidity.

    Hello Forest Gump! The Left-wing media needs to get a life. MAYBE they can find some imperfections with the Obama's. Last time I checked, they are not walking on water either.

    Yes, Columbia and Harvard, where he was the President of the Law Review. I don't much care for his policies, but comparing him to Palin on an intellectual level makes you look just as dumb as she is.

    You MADE my day! During your screaming tirade you must have forgotten how to spell and use proper punctuation! Next time you want to criticize ANYONE and call them stupid, it might be a great (and I mean GREAT) idea to use spell check or at least reread what you post. Otherwise, you are just making yourself look stupid.

    I say instead of watching reality TV go out in the world and create your own reality. Do something to improve yourself or the life of someone. Volunteer at a food pantry, help a neighbor in need, read a book to someone who is in a nursing home. If everyone volunteered the hours they sat in front of the TV could you imagine how much could be done.

    No. U R the idiot. Bristol doesn't claim 2 B anything other than what she is. Barely out of her teens, a single Mom, working as clerk in an office, drives an old truck and loves the outdoors. Seems kinda down to earth to me and in a similar situation as millioms of others. Ues she speaks on absitinence. What is so awful about that. Keith O is another idiot suggesting that as a child, seh has no right to be a spokesperson. That's like saying a reformed drug addict that has turned into a great citizen shoukl not counsel wayward teens. What person would condemn that?

    So the producer offered Bristol some coin 2 B a participant because the network knew she would capture viewership for whatever reason. She admitted she could not dance. Ketih is a bigot. U R a bigot. And U liberals R nothing but hateful people. Were U born hateful? Didi your Mom teach U 2 B hateful? Or did the devil Keith O make U that way?

    'Community Organizer' is such a genetic description. Gang Members, Organized Crime Bosses, Union 'Bosses', Pimps, Political Hacks, etc ... are also 'Community Organizers'. Typically, the organizers organize according to their own intent rather than by the will of the community.

    Before being elected President, Obama was a United States Senator from Illinois, the fifth most polulous state. Before losing the 2008 election, Palin was the Governor of Alaska, the 47th most populous state. However, when the going got tough, intead of toughing it out and proving her political mettle as Governor, she just quit.

    I don't like Barack Obama's policies. But I would rather have a Ivy league law educated, intelligent flaming liberal as President, than a glorified community college journalism major who's biggest act as an actual governing executive was to resign. The GOP can do better. She is a terrible spokesperson for us. She is a poorly educated, incurious, narrow minded quitter. I don't like or respect her. I won't vote for her. I'll send our Governor Christie to DC to run for President before I vote for her.

    Is there a label other than celebrity or quitter you could attach to Sarah? She has quit every elected position she has had. Before that her claim to fame was winning a beauty pageant. She went to multiple colleges to finish her degree. Most hard working "real" Americans go to college and graduate within 5 years unless they are going for a higher degree or work full time while they go to school. She went to 4 colleges for 6 years to earn her degree in JOURNALISM . Not political science, law or some other useful degree.

    Well said Marin, I hardly ever read these things because there are so many idiots like this Bill and TiminNC that seem to have so much emptyness in their lives that they just live to find something to b!tch about, or somebody to spew their hateful comments about,
    I'm just an ignorant retired trucker, and a member of the VFW and the Americam Legion, I have never thought I was better than any of my fellow americans, BUT! I do believe I am superior to a clown like TiminNC, and Bill, you come across as a stupid jerk that really needs to get a life or a girl/boyfriend whichever suits you, anything to take up a little time in your empty life,
    Sarah Palin may not be ready to run this country, I don't know, but I do know I am behind her 100% and she is d!mn sure a whole lot more qualified then this guy that has almost ruined our country now, in fact, I believe Bristol would make a better president then him. so much for my rant, ya'll have a nice day.

    I'm not a fan of Bristol, or the Palins, but let's be fair. Are there so many of you out there who couldn't afford to lose a few pounds yourself ( I know I could ) ? Bristol did try her best, and that's all we can ask. Are so many of you terrific dancers yourself ? I think not. I know Bristol's overweight, but her face isn't bad looking at all. I'd much rather spend my time gazing at Bristol's butt than Kathy Griffin's tranny face, any day, wouldn't you ?
