Did Sarah Palin Force Bristol to Appear on Dancing With the Stars?

Did Sarah Palin make daughter Bristol go Dancing With the Stars to win over America as part of a strategy to prime the pump for a 2012 White House run?

That's what Margaret Cho says she heard. Whatever it's worth.

On her blog, the comedian says someone "who would know" told her "the only reason Bristol Palin was on the show was because Sarah forced her to do it."

PALIN-TOLOGY: Was Sarah behind Bristol's DWTS appearance?

If that's true, we'd say results were mixed. Not everyone loved Bristol's run. Still, better idea than calling out Michelle Obama over childhood nutrition.

What's more, "Sarah supposedly blames Bristol harshly and openly (in the circles that I heard it from) for not winning the election in 2008," Cho writes.

"So she told Bristol she 'owed' it to her to do DWTS so that 'America would fall in love with her again' and make it possible for Sarah to run in 2012."

"Instead of being supposedly 'handicapped' by the presence of her daughter, now Bristol is going to be an 'asset' - a celebrity beloved for her dancing."

That's quite the conspiracy theory ... however unlikely, it would fall in line with related rumors of Tea Party supporters stacking the votes in her favor.

Despite few critics saying she deserved to win, younger Palin made it all the way to the finals before finishing behind Jennifer Grey and Kyle Massey.

Cho, who was eliminated third, says she's sure ABC wasn't in on the mother / daughter pressure and that Bristol is "warm and incredibly supportive."

But she doesn't hold back with the Mama Grizzly. "Now I am scared I am going to wake up with a decapitated moose head in my bed," Cho quipped.


I could believe Sara pushed her out there cause she never looked happy nor did it look like she was even trying. And how do you do all that practicing they have to do and keep gaining weight when everyone else is losing weight. But it ruined the show for me because the judges were not fair in this situation and that was terribly wrong to do. I would not watch the show again. I enjoy competition but this was not competition this was favoritism.


some people should mind thier own business,,,,margaret chow should mind her own business,,,,,bristal did great and came out of a shell,and become a good dancer,,,,,so just shut up


Oh my. Of course, you all know that Bristol was on the show, to the end, to boost ratings. You know that if she would have won, no one would have watched the show anymore. We would know that it's not about talent anymore..... And anyone would be bitter about being voted off before Bristol. She did go through the movements--not easy. But sad that her mother made her go through this for many reasons: first, I think Bristol now thinks that she can dance well; she will go through life thinking she's the best at things at that she can open her mouth about anything; like good ol mom. It's wonderful to have a mom that tells you that you can do anything; but gently nudge them when they can't.. And sorry, Bristol. Kathy takes her shot at everyone. That means that you've made it. ( At least the weight is exercised well, now)!!!!!


Bristol's talent drips from her!! Her mother should have been there for her earlier in her life and avoid the ridicule. Now Sarah should do right for the other children that she brought into the world!


What kind of crap is Margaret Cho coming with now ?
Is she still bitter about being voted off before Bristol ?
All of a sudden now she's worried about what she wakes up with in her bed ?

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
