The entire Bristol’s Pistols campaign has come to an end. She can now go home to Alaska (not sure if they want her…) and Momma Grizzly. America will live another day and watch another Palin lose a voting campaign (probably in 2012).
Ever the gracious loser, Bristol had this to say:
Umm…well, maybe she wasn’t that gracious! So much for her appearance on the show being “non-political”, too!
Meanwhile, the conservative internet is all a-twitter with complaints that the legitimate winner of Dancing With the Stars, Jennifer Grey, held the upper hand in the dance competition, nah…they’re calling it cheating…by taking pain relieving medications.
It takes a lot of nerve to make this accusation, but after the Facebook Fiasco, I wouldn’t put anything beyond the smear campaign capabilities of The Wasilla Hillbillies. Next thing you know is they’ll be accusing Grey of having an unfair advantage because she danced in a movie 25 years ago. Wait. Nevermind!
“Don’t forget that Bristol was “cheated” out of winning. That will be on the ‘net soon. Either twitter or FB.”
As an experiment for the @boycottDWTS campaign on Twitter, I managed 174 successful votes for Grey and Massey Monday and Tuesday morning, all from the same IP and using fake email addresses.
Obviously there is a serious glitch to the system. Producer Conrad Green can deny all he wants (all the while continuing his donations to Republican candidates) but this is a problem that will cost ABC in the future without massive changes to the voting system.
I suggest doing away with internet voting and allow phone/text voting for a fixed block of time; say 3 hours; in order to give those who work hard at the dancing (and don’t have a popular political figure as their mother who enjoys the support of fringe reactionaries) earn a win.
So you admit trying to che at the system. What a set of values you have. The amount of energy expended by the mor0ns of the world is amazing. It really is sad the amount of vitriol and hate that emminates from a disgust ing group of people who have no shame in propagating what is wrong in the first place.
Yeah you cloaked your h ate and igno rance in an experiment.
