Bristol Palin is inhaling a shit-storm of criticism for staying on Dancing With the Stars despite more successful dancers getting eliminated. Many blame the tea party for inflating votes, but I actually think voters got it right. If the competition was based solely on dancing ability, I could understand the outrage. But it’s not. It’s based on dancing ability, improvement, and personality. Brandy and Maksim both lacked the third element. Maksim is excessively arrogant, often talking back to the judges. For goodness sakes, he even defended slapping Brandy on the ass as part of his incredible teaching ability! You can’t win a voter-based competition and act like an ass. So congratulations Bristol — you deserve to be there.
If you’re a Dishmaster fan, then you know my Barbara Walters love, and her interview with Bristol Palin on The View further solidifies it. When addressing Bristol’s claim that Levi Johnston “stole her virginity,” because she was drunk when they had sex, Walters said, “you must have liked it because you kept doing it.” The audience laughed, and Bristol said she figured she might as well continue, as she had already “broken her moral code.” Wow. What’s the moral code on implying that someone sexually took advantage of you so you could sell books?
