Sarah Palin Defends Dancing With the Stars Voting, Brushes Off "Haters"

by at . Comments

With the judges' scores comprising half the total, Bristol Palin needs a surge of voter support to overcome Jennifer Grey's lead and win Dancing with the Stars.

Can she do it? Ask Audrina Patridge or Brandy if they doubt her fans' ability to pull her through. Bristol's march to the final week has been something to behold.

It's surprised some fans so much that there's been talk of vote-rigging, but her mother, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, dismisses all conspiracy theories.

“The producers of Dancing With the Stars are explaining over and over again, there’s no way to cheat the system,” Sarah said. “But the haters are going to hate."

"Bristol has said it best. Bristol has said, ‘Mom, it doesn’t matter what we do, we’re going to get criticized anyway, so we might as well just dance.” So, so true.

The mother of Bristol and Willow Palin said, “You’re right, honey, you might as well dance, fly, and soar and speak about issues that are important to this country."

"We might as well do it, and we’ll take that criticism, because we know that, at the end of the day, truly, being committed to a cause is worth it.”

What cause she's talking about is subject to interpretation, but how inspirational. Anyway, does Bristol Palin deserve to be in the DWTS finals?
