Bonnie Asks: Did Sarah Palin Force Bristol To Do 'DWTS' To Help Her Presidential Campaign?

Wed, December 1, 2010 6:18pm EDT by 43 Comments

Bristol’s former competitor Margaret Cho swears it’s true! She writes on her blog that Sarah blames Bristol for ruining her vice-presidential run by getting pregnant.

If Margaret Cho is right, that’s some mighty heavy guilt that Sarah Palin has packed onto her daughter. “The only reason Bristol was on the show was because Sarah Palin forced her to do it,” Margaret writes. “Sarah supposedly blames Bristol harshly and openly … for not winning the election, and so she told Bristol she ‘owed’ it to her to do DWTS.”

We contacted Margaret and she reiterated to Hollywoodlife.com that her source on Bristol and Sarah is “solid.”

Now what was Sarah’s reason for “forcing” Bristol to do DWTS, according to Margaret ? She wanted “America to fall in love with her again” and to make it possible for Sarah Palin to run in 2012 with America behind her all the way. Sarah believed, writes Margaret, that DWTS would transform Sarah from “supposedly being handicapped by the presence of her teen-mom daughter” to having Bristol become a wonderful “asset, a celebrity beloved for her dancing.”

If Margaret is correct, then Palin is truly more of an evil genius than even I thought. Evil, because laying that kind of an enormous burden of guilt on your child is unethical and inexcusable — especially when your child is already coping with young, single motherhood.

Genius, because it’s even more evidence of how brilliantly Sarah understands the power of pop culture to shape her public image.

While other potential Republican presidential candidates are dithering around with traditional politicking in backrooms, Sarah is playing right to the public with her hit reality show, Sarah Palin’s Alaska, and her bestselling books,  Going Rogue: An American Life and now America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag.

Sarah knows she’s putting on a highly flattering, free-for-the-Palins commercial for her presidential candidacy every time the show airs. This week’s episode garnered 3.5 million viewers, up from last week’s episode.

Then having “Bristol the Pistol,” her daughter with two left feet, pull at our heartstrings all the way to the DWTS finale added multi-millions of dollars more of free (and positive) Palin publicity to the potential 2012 Presidential run.

When Sarah and Todd Palin sat front row to cheer on Bristol, they didn’t have to say a word about their strong family values. The video clips were worth thousands of words.

It’s genius. Evil genius in action. Especially because Sarah has made a point of having a full episode about mother-daughter/Sarah-Bristol bonding on her show. The Sarah Palin’s Alaska version of girls bonding was no mani/pedi outing – it was  a tough outdoorsy Alaskan expedition –  fishing and gutting halibut together.

According to Margaret, Sarah’s really been pulling a different kind of gutting on her own daughter. Now Margaret says she’s worried she’ll wake up to a “decapitated moose head on my bed.”

I guess Bristol was terrified of that too!

I had a good laugh at all these comments.First I should mention that BIG BIG halibut get shot in the head, not beat with a bat!
Second, all your comments (both sides) just prove that Sarah is doing exactly what she said she would do when she left the governorship of AK. Smart cookie. Perhaps Sarah encouraged Bristol to be on DWTS.. with a lot of encouragement to a basically shy gal. But it was Bristol and her fans that got her that far. I like Sarah,not so sure I would vote for her to be Pres…..depends of the choices. Certainly she couldn’t do worse than Nobama! Peace and grace to all.

I’m so sickened by this season’s travesty that I think I’m finished with the program.

I spoke with an insider who told me that a Palin is to have some sort of “reality” show and that the producers did something to ensure Bristol’s continued presence and resulting publicity.

I was watching The View (I will not watch those strange women again) when BaaBaa Walters said: Bristol Palin shouldn’t be on the that show. She is not a star, she is just an unwed teenage mother. She became a star, just like BaaBaa, when her life became plastered all over the news stations. How did she win? I, for one, voted for her and Jennifer Grey every episode for as many times as I could. I felt like she improved every week and worked very hard. Sometimes we get tired of the opinions of the judges and have the opportunity to vote. I wonder how many of the mouthy contributers to the comments voted. The name of the show DWTS does not say you have to be a professional dancer. It is the job of the professional dancers to teach the stars the steps. Improvement and drive helped Bristol come in third.

So right you are !, Mark.

The phony, loony lib blowhards always TALK about how they’ll “definitely be giving up their U.S. citizenship, and moving to another country”, if and when Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, Sarah Palin [or "fill in the blank"] ever gets elected President of the U.S., but… funny thing about that… It simply NEVER ever happens !, when “the unthinkable” occurs, as it so often does, and a Republican and/or conservative gets elected American President, as will be happening again [along with a nice shiny new Republican Senate getting elected, also] in 2012.

Or at least the loony left phonies never ever follow through, on their leaving the country “threats”, since the time of the Vietnam War, when there was still a military draft, when back then many of the loony left [thankfully] actually did abscond, to Canada… If there’s one thing the loony left values more their own absolutely ridiculous, and utterly unfounded political takes on things, it’s covering their own actual a*ses [personal life and health, in other words], and with no draft left, after the Vietnam War, they no longer had any more concern in that particualr “self-preservation” area, so therefore always now seem to opt for going back on their much balyhooed [by them] “promises”, and deciding to “suffer the ordeal” of continuing to live in this “intolerable police state” after the election of a good conservative Republican.

YOu know… the election of the particular Republican, to the Presidency, that they’d just promised everyone would be “the absolute last straw” for them. : )

I believe Alec Baldwin promised everyone he was giving up his American citizenship, and moving out of the country, if and when George W. Bush got elected [in either 2000 or 2004 -- I can't remember which], and of course Baldwin’s still here, mailing in those “bore everyone to tears” remarably unfunny “30 Rock” performances, alongside his comparably non-funny, insufferably snooty, “just can’t quite get over herself” Palin Derangement Syndrome co-star, Tina F[on]ey.

“Such is life”, in these great United States… Haha : )… but in any case, Mark, all the best of luck to you and your’s, and thanks for being someone [else : )] who actually speaks with an abundance of GOOD SENSE !, at a place like this. : )

“Douch[a]bag” ?

Soa why don’ta you goa backa to the Italia of Il Duce, Benito Mussolini, where the actual fascism, of the modern era, originated [even prior to Hitler coming to power in German]

As I indicated in my above statement, Mark was EXTREMELY right on, in wishing Shayne his very pleasant “Just don’t let the door to America hit you on the a*s, on your way out, you phony” sentiments. [The fact that, IMO, "socialism" would've been a significantly more accurate word for him to have used than "communism" is to be seen, relatively speaking, to be only an EXCEEDINGLY minor detail, in a case like this.]

And the only thing actually “solid” about you, you self-imagined “Solid American”, is, well… the rocks in your head !

I don’t believe for a second that Bristol joined DWTS on her own accord. The entire Palin family is being used to Sarah’s advantage and that is NOT the kind of person that should ever hold any office. I refuse to live in a country where a person like that represents me. If she even gets the nomination for the election in 2012, I will be moving out of the US.

There’s actually incalculably MUCH more of a concrete and conceivable possibility, Shayne, that I’ll be physically walking on the surface of the planet MARS, within the next 20 minutes !, than there is that you’ll ever so much as dream of in fact following through on your “threat” of giving up your U.S. citizenship, on the occasion of Sarah Palin merely being nominated as the Republican candidate for the American Presidency, in 2012, to replace the woeful Obama.

That is, if said woeful Obama even decides to run again, at that time, and then doesn’t get knocked off by a Democratic primary challenger.

And actually, if you were logically consistent with what seems to be the OVERWHELMING majority of bilge your obsessive Palin Derangement Syndrome friends put out on these various websites, you’d be absolutely THRILLED if SP got the Republican 2012 Presidential nomination, because of how “absolutely unelectable” the PDS types seem to be making such a great and regular fanfare of claiming she is [which of course is in no way representative of the actual case -- She's ENTIRELY electable as President of the U.S.]

And America would certainly be most fortunate to have her as its’ President… especially as a “just in the nick of time” replacement for the narcissistic clod we’ve got in there now, who just can’t seem to figure out what exactly he’s doing in the office… once everyone finally got past all of that just unspeakably tedious and vacuous [just having nothing actually to do with anything, that in fact in any way much mattered] “Yes we could !” bilge, that is.

I think Margarets statements are most likely true and I also think there was a lot more fixing with the whole thing. Bristol is definitely not a dancer and should have been eliminated on the first round, and if everyone noticed the judges was also in disarray that she was not. HOW IN THE HECK DID SHE MAKE IT TO THE FINALS??? Get real America..

You know what I don’t get? When Bonnie fangirls over Palin, all of the comments are “Geez Bonnie, we know you like her but most of us don’t.” and then when Bonnie hates on Palin, all the comments are “Typical liberal media, all with the hate. Gb2 to China or Russia”
Can we all collectively decide if Bonnie is a Tea Party Palin and Anarchy loving Fangirl or if she’s a Liberal Commie Pinko Potsmoking Slacker? Please?? I don’t think it’s possible to be both so make up your mind, peanut gallery!

Sarah Palin is an idiot. Even McCain’s administration posted negative statements about her behavior all throughout the presidential campaign. If she’s the kind of person you want running your country, what kind of American does that make you?

“Star” is to be understood, Ron, in the context of this show, as meaning “celebrity”.

And Bristol Palin certainly is to be understood as a “celebrity”, in every sense of the word, as being the very much widely talked about and discussed [across America, for years now] eldest daughter of Sarah Palin, where Salin Palin herself simply has to be understood to be one of the two or three MOST widely discussed Americans alive today.

And the extreme irony of all this is that, although Sarah Palin herself would of course be a most legitimate “star” and “celebrity” in America, simply due to her exceedingly powerful influence in American national politics, the fact that each and every member of her [large] immediate family are now, unquestionably, much talked about “celebrities” in their own rights, would’ve happened, if FOR NO OTHER REASON, due to the fact that all the politically leftist “Palin Derangement Syndrome” afflicted Palin HATERS simply NEVER SHUT UP !, over the Internet, about not just SP herself, but about EACH AND EVERY MEMBER OF HER [beautiful] FAMILY !

So if you want to know, Ron, “Who made Bristol Palin a star / celebrity ?” just LOOK IN A MIRROR !, alright ? !, because YOU, and all your fellow Palin HATERS, entirely ON YOUR OWN !, would’ve made Bristol Palin, and all her brothers and sisters, and her dad, and that very much seemingly good-for-nothing clod [Levi Johnston] who’s the father of Bristol Palin’s beautiful son [so, OK, I guess he WAS "good for something" : )]] into “stars / celebrities”, by coming on the Internet CONSTANTLY, in the past more than two years, and incessently spewing unremittingly nasty and hateful gossip about them [which temporarily turned to "compliments" for the Levi clod, at the point he became estranged from the Palin family, and the Palin haters then immediately looked at him as "a fine young man", because they then saw him as a "potential very good source of dirt" on the Palin family... Haha : )].

And just to finish with something about the “DWTS” show, in support of the fact I mentioned that the word “star” in the show’s title is only to be understood in the sense of “celebrity” : How many of you Palin haters, who I’ve FREQUENTLY and quite transparently idiotically seen posting, in the past # of months [since I think maybe just at the time it'd first been ANNOUNCED Bristol P. would be appearing as a contestant on this show, in the future] : “What even qualifies Bristol Palin to be on this show in the first place… Why is she any kind of a ‘star’ ? !”, ever asked that SAME question about Kelly Osborne ?, the daughter of Ozzy and Sharon Osborne, who was on the show I think maybe just last season, and ended up doing EXTREMELY well, on it.

I never, that I can recall, saw A SINGLE ONE of you post, on the Internet “What makes Kelly Osborne a star [in her own right], that she should be entitled to be on this show ?”

And if you’d seen any of Kelly Osborne’s appearances, on the show, you’d probably agree with me that, if anything, Kelly O. was actually significantly LESS “talented”, LESS “athletic”, LESS “in shape”, etc., than Bristol Palin, going into that show… I believe that neither of them, very admittedly, had any prior experience, whatsoever, with performance dancing, and, as I said, it certainly looked like Kelly O. had considerably LESS to work with, from the start, in terms of natural dancing talent, and athletic ability, etc., than Bristol P. did.

But BOTH girls obviously worked VERY hard !, on preparing their dance routines, and ended up doing extremely well on the show !, and became real favorites, of both the fans of the show, and the judges, for how hard they worked, to make the very best of what relatively rather limited dancing talent, and athletic ability, etc., they each had.

And the fact that none of you Palin haters, who have been constantly whining about Bristol Palin even being on this show, said so much as a peep [that I can ever recall reading] over the Internet, about Kelly Osborne being on this this show [that she, like Bristol, ended up doing so well on], even though I certainly don’t know of Kelly Osborne having previously had any really legitimate “star / celebrity status”, on her own, aside from what she’d gleaned from her parents…

I think all of that shows shows, very clearly, yet again, what a complete bunch of gratuitously hateful phonies all you knee-jerk [with the definite emphasis on the "jerk" part, there] obsessive haters of the Palin family are.

I wondered why Bristol put me in mind of every kid in dance class who would have rather been taking skating lessons or horseback riding lessons [I was the latter]. The poor child was so wooden she could have been the famed cigar store Indian. She had NOT the talent to stay until the third week. She really was that bad. It fits.

And why in the hades would anyone with half a brain think that your child appearing on DWTS improve your chances of election? Being accepted to your first college, an Ivy League, gives you a much better chance instead of shopping
around for someone who will lower the bar enough to graduate you. Oh wait, we are talking about Sarah? Never mind.

DWTS needs to REVEAL the votes of all judges and audience [counted by an independent agency]

She quit being Governor of Alaska because she was being investigated for blackmailing her ex-brother in law. America needs a leader to be President not a game show host

Entirely apart from this most recent evidence– M. Cho has a well-established history which has shown her to be a deeply disturbed , not to mention, frighteningly ignorant person.
