Sarah Palin is in mama grizzly mode.

With Bristol Palin getting white powder sent to her on the Dancing With the Stars set, the former Republican V.P. nominee is in L.A. sticking up for her cub.

After a series of alleged death threats against Bristol, Sarah traveled to California to be with her and went off on her daughter's "haters" on Facebook, writing:

Between Bristol's run to the finals and reports that her father, Todd, may be next, many people can't get enough of the Palins on Dancing With the Stars.

One judge on the show certainly can, though.

DWTS Countdown

"I think one Palin was enough," Carrie Ann Inaba told E! News, responding to Todd Palin speculation. "I think we need to go on a Palin vacation for a bit."

Palins mean ratings, but that's not enough to sway one judge.

"Although it was such great media attention, I think it was too controversial," Inaba explained. "I think people got confused about what they were rooting for"

"Are you voting for dancing on the show or are you voting for a Party? I think it made it uncomfortable for a lot of people who just want to see dancing."

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.

Carson Kressley and Anna Trebunskaya

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."

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?

Todd Palin, husband of Sarah and father of Bristol, was approached for this season of Dancing With the Stars as well, the former Alaska Governor said.

Bristol Palin has survived three weeks thus far on the current season, but was she even the dance competition's first choice among her own family?

"They wanted Todd to be on the show," Sarah Palin said at a Houston, Tex. speaking engagement. "I think that would have been cool to see, too."

Coming next season to DWTS: Todd Palin?!

The politician didn't say whether producers originally wanted him instead of Bristol, or in addition to the teenage mother of 18-month-old Tripp.

Bristol is doing great in any case, Sarah reports: "She is way out of her element, out of her comfort zone, and she is the first to admit that."

Would Sarah herself ever compete? Only if they incorporated basketball.

"They would have to let me dribble back and forth and maybe pivot and do a jump shot or something as part of the routine," she quipped.

Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough earned the top score on Dancing With the Stars last night, cementing their status as one of the couples of beat this season.

But the aftermath of their jive may have been even more notable.

As Brooke Burke turned to the audience and warned them that without their votes, Jennifer could follow David Hasselhoff out the door, audible booing began.

Derek and Jennifer were overshadowed by an audience member.

"There's booing in the ballroom - we don't know why," a perplexed Brooke reported. "Why is there booing?" Grey wonders, since she and Derek did great.

Cut to host Tom Bergeron, sitting next to Sarah Palin in the crowd.

"All right, thank you, Brooke," Tom said, with no mention of the booing. "I'm here with guest ballroom commentator Sarah Palin, who joins us from Alaska."

Moderate applause from the audience. So was she booed or not?

Dancing With the Stars must not have much faith in Bristol Palin.

In her tangoin' talents, anyway. Usually, DWTS producers save the big ratings guns for the end of the season, but a very special segment on Bristol and her famous family connections looks to be airing this coming Monday night.

How do we know? Twitter Exhibit A:

Sarah Palin Tweets a photo of herself with Mark Ballas.

Hot off their successful debut (hey, The Hoff was hassled instead of her), Bristol and partner Mark Ballas are currently in Wasilla, Alaska, for a little practice ... and a little pre-taped, star-studded filming to air prior to their performance.

We have a hunch who might be appearing on that footage. Just a hunch.

Who are you rooting for on Dancing With the Stars? Bristol? Vote!

The highlight of the Dancing With the Stars premiere - to fans and Bristol Palin herself - was the revealing of her sexy dress beneath a more conservative outfit.

"That was my favorite part!" she told Us Weekly after the performance. "Leading up to it I was pretty nervous, but once I pulled the jacket off it was all good!"

Added partner Mark Ballas, "That's when things kicked in, and she was like, 'Ok, let's go!'" They scored only 16, but Len Goodman praised her "good hip action."

Wait ... wait for it ... that's what Levi Johnston said!

While Bristol and Mark cha-cha-ed, Sarah cheered from afar.

Bristol Palin said that the show's routines are difficult, but she's optimistic: "It's good we're going in the right direction, but we've still got a lot of work to do."

Ballas is "pumped because if you saw the first day to now - her improvement is crazy! She's the most improved and we are so happy. I'm really proud of her."

So where was Sarah Palin last night?

They may read like something the THG staff made up, but these spoilers for tomorrow night's Dancing With the Stars premiere are legitimate and pretty classic.

Monday's most shocking debut, from Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas, will be a Cha Cha Cha set to the music of Three Dog Night's "Mama Told Me (Not to Come)."

LOLOLOL. Levi? You listening man?

  • DWTS Promo Pic
  • Hot Running Mom!

Sarah might want to run away from tomorrow's performance ...

That would be hilarious enough, but apparently during the dance, Bristol Palin will rip off "tear-away clothes" as her mother, Sarah Palin, sits in the audience.

What a tremendous ambassador for abstinence and teen pregnancy prevention.

This could be amazing stuff. For every routine set to take place Monday, follow the jump for our full list of tomorrow night's Dancing With the Stars spoilers ...

Sarah Palin Quotes

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.

Sarah Palin

I am thankful to be married to a man who loves being a dad as much as I love being a mom so he is my strength. And practically speaking, we have a great network of help with lots of grandparents and aunties and uncles all around us. We have a lot of help.
