Why Bristol the Pistol deserves the win on Dancing With the Stars
Like it or not, it appears politics are mixing it up wherever we turn. For some, there is no more obvious proof than turning on your favorite television show - Dancing With the Stars.
So what has some viewers so fired up they're shooting their television or claiming the Tea Party has spilled over where they shouldn't? The answer is Bristol Palin. Bristol the pistol is standing up to her nickname and showing viewers and critics alike that she has much of the spunk her mother holds. Genetics or environment? Perhaps some of both.
Regardless, I'm one viewer who supports her continued success even though I figured Brandi would dance away with the win.
I found myself inwardly hoping Bristol would remain on the show for several reasons: she was the underdog with no stardom behind her name, no dancing lessons, limited stage presence and honestly it was just plan shocking and amusing because she was pretty lame in the beginning.
Talk about mass voting by Tea Party supporters has made it interesting and the debate that the real issue is many just plain identify with this simple, shy, sweetly innocent young woman who appears to be turning from an ugly duckling and into a lovely swan right before our eyes.
Then there's that underlying thought directed towards her jerk of an ex boyfriend and father of her young son - eat your heart out loser!
I saw Bristol has shown without a doubt that she's changed and grown the most as a dancer. The show has often been about that as well as a popularity contest. Bristol, you've got my vote!
