The Elephant in the Room

Or, in this case, the dance floor.

May I just say...Told you so!

What amuses the hell out of me is that it's taken so many people so long to twig to this. Gee...maybe A whole bunch of people are voting for the potty-mouthed homophobic Bristol Palin because they're getting tweets from Sarahpac or the Tea Party Gazette or something.

Oh wait. I apologize. It's her SISTER that's the potty-mouthed homophobic.

Bristol is just a deer in the headlights campaign poster. Of course she's both supported AND apologized for the potty mouthed Willow but that's what a good little "teen activist" does.

Oh yeah. Teen Activist? I went to school with a teen activist. Except back then, we called her unwed and unemployed. I guess idioms evolve. Or is it idiots, I never remember.

Anyway, it's come out that ABC apparently doesn't verify e-mail addresses when one signs up to vote for the talented Ms. Palin at ABC.com. Conceivably, a motivated "fan" could spend an hour signing up with an email address like greygoose@redsquare.com, vote, log off and sign in again with, oh, JohnnyWalker@boozehound.com and well, before you know it, Bristol's got another 1500 votes.

THIS has just dawned on everyone. Now that's funny. What is it, nine, ten weeks in and the "dancer" who has never been out of the bottom two is now in the finals and this is JUST dawning on people?

Wow. Can't put anything over on reality fans, can you?

So...here's the plan. SAVE REALITY TELEVISION!

Next Monday, plunk your fanny down in front of your Mac and start registering every freaking phony e-mail address you can pull out of your butt. And mount a write in campaign.

Lisa Murkowski. Make sure you spell it right or it won't count. Okay, there's no write in option. Anyway, maybe we should all just overwhelm America's teen sweetheart with a boatload of votes for Jennifer Grey.

On the other hand, maybe we should just sit back and let her win.

I can't wait to see the Tea Party convention in 2012, with that great, big mirror ball trophy prominently displayed on the podium. Classic misdirection...it should be fun. "And here's my daughter Bristol, the too old to be a teen activist. She's promoting abstinence by practicing an alternate hobby. In her case, she won this beautiful trophy for her skill doing the horizontal mambo."

Mama Grizzlies approve.

    This is the first year that I've "gotten into" DWTS, and it makes me sad to have watched the saga of the "Bristol wins" unfold.

    To be sure, it makes quite a statement about the motives and ethics of the folks voting at home. Are they voting based on talent? No. They are voting based on nepotism. And those same folks supposedly love Mama Palin for her "family values". Ummm, yeah right.

    But at the end of the day, I feel sorry for Bristol. How embarrassing to be so untalented and win the competitions. She's no "America's Sweetheart", she's not winning our hearts because of her hard work and charisma. No, she has all the charm of flat soda. In her heart, she's got to know that she didn't/ doesn't deserve to win based on merit. What a hollow victory it must be. And what was initially a fun experience is slowly turning into a mini-scandal that IMHO will follow her around for the rest of her life. All because of momma bear ...
