>Steven Cowan, of the town of Vermont, felt Palin was not a good dancer and was only on the show because of her famous mother.

Something about that Palin brood brings out the freaky in its admirers and its detractors.

I thought the story would be about a "Christian" enraged over teen abstinence activist Bristol's borderline slutty wardrobe and dancing.(Not that there's anything wrong with slutty wardrobes and dancing....)

Bristol Palin dances as well as a one-legged kicker in a field goal kicking contest.

It's not politics... It's a popularity contest and people can't stand Brandy's stud Maks.. He's the reason she was voted off. Same thing happened to Mel B. She should have won but people can't stand Maks.

I don't watch the show but I have an EXTREME reichwing highschool friend on Facebook who claims the LEFT is voting for her "to keep her from seeing her baby" (!) and "to embarrass her" (?)!!

Well, If you think about it brandy and the baby have a dace past and experience.The palin girl knew nothing about dance just how to get knocked up. So bristol realy did improve more than brandy did.Brandy has a bad attitude. from the first show i noticed brandys attitude when she blamed the judges poor scores on Max and said I told max that wouldnt work.Now she trys to be quiet as a mouse and keep her pie hole shut. Im sure her family said , Hey brandy your not looking good on the show with throwing M<ax under the bus all the time.She's a phony!! Bristol is a real person.People notice that.I could care less who dances best. Its where they started and where they are at now.I am a white person but I do think kyle the disney kid should win. I have the most fun watching him and he did progress the most. The baby is a good dancer but she started out as a good dancer. Kyle was a two legged cow in the beggining now he's a pro.

The guy was a loose cannon anyway. Bristol Palin was just a convenient excuse to finally implode. Good riddance to him.
I applaud Bristol regardless of whether she should have been voted off, or not. The fact that she took on a challenge with no previous dancing experience, and put herself before the entire nation knowing she'd hear praise AND ridicule, is admirable.

The only reason it was an all night stand off is because he went to bed and was asleep. Not tele to keep him up and disturb his thinking.

Brandy was the better dancer but was voted off because she and her partner are both absolutley unlikeable. Who cares.. arrogant, spoiled diva. If the show was called reading with the stars or doing math with the stars she would have got knocked out much sooner.
