I THINK THAT BRISTOL PALIN SHOULD HAVE BEEN GONE 3 WEEKS INTO THE SHOW ON DANCING WITH THE STARS.SHE MAY BE SWEET,SOFT SPOKEN BUT SHE CLEARLY CAN NOT DANCE. IT IS SO DISGUSTING THAT BRANDY WAS VOTED OFF.AND I AM PRETTY SURE SHE IS STILL THERE IS BECAUSE OF HER MOTHER. IF BRISTOL WINS THIS,THEN THERE IS SOMETHING VERY WRONG.

In the right light, Clair looks like Schemp from The Three Stooges.

What a travesty last night on "Dancing with "Dancing with the Stars"..When Brandy was voted out by people
who do not know what ballroom dancing is all about...
We are so disgusted with the rules of voting.Bristol Palin should of have been voted out, she really cannot dance, although she had improved from the first day. She was voted on by Sarah Palin supporters strictly on personality.Politics should be kept out.

"should OF been voted out?" Dammit, can't ANYONE speak or write English any more? (For the less enlighted readers here, that should be "should HAVE been voted..."

I've never watched the show (except for a few moments under matrimonial duress in which I have been subjected to the pretentious announcers promoting the program's product as having any importance whatever) but the idea that ANY ONE of those Wasilla Wenches have any talent to display strikes me as eminently laughable.
