Is Sarah Palin Trying To Get Votes For Bristol On Dancing With The Stars?

September 28, 2012 09:28 AM by Lisa Princ

Sarah Palin‘s family is certainly making the rounds on reality television these days. First, we watched her husband, Todd Palin compete on Stars Earn Stripes, and now it’s Bristol’s turn on Dancing with the Stars. So, just how does the Palin matriarch stay supportive? By trying to get some votes, of course!

Dancing With The Stars’ alum Bristol Palin may not be everyone’s favorite past contestant, and that is probably why her mother, Sarah Palin is spreading the word about Bristol. In a recent interview with Extra, it appeared that mama Palin may be trying to get folks to vote for Bristol, as she explained: “These are all champions that she’s competing against. She was 19 when she did this last time. Here she’s 21 now, so yeah, she’s certainly matured and more experienced.”

Honestly, if Bristol Palin is that much better than last time, surely the voters will notice, with or without Sarah’s input. One thing that Sarah Palin will also be doing for Bristol this season will be attending most of the shows in an effort to be supportive. But while she may love attending the shows, Sarah Palin has no intentions of ever doing the show herself. “No I wouldn’t do it. Bristol’s doing great. She’s represented our family very well. I’m such a klutz,” Palin replied when asked if she would ever consider a stint on the show.

Do you think Sarah Palin is just a proud mama, or is she trying to get votes for Bristol Palin? What do you think of Bristol Palin on Dancing With The Stars? Are you rooting for her? Comment and share your thoughts with us below!

    So what if she is trying to get votes. Any mother I know would be tweeing, facebooking, callin or doing anything they can to help get votes. I wish you left wing media types would just leave Sarah alone. She is smarter than all of you.

    What is she supposed to say? Don’t vote for my daughter? Vote for Apolo?

    Too bad Pamela Anderson didn’t have her parents there asking people to vote for her or maybe she wouldn’t have got kicked off. These voting shows aren’t about who is the most talented or they would only have in-house judges…they are all about likeability and getting people to watch and vote.

    I swear….sometimes this Sarah Palin hatred gets from absurd to absolutely ridiculous. You try to make up controversies for no reason. Why don’t you guys just write an article titled “How Much I Hate Sarah Palin and Family” and get all this playground stuff over with.

    Oh my lord another jealous woman writing about the Palins.

    The Dallascowboys sent out a tweet asking all their twitter followers to vote for Emmitt Smith on DWTS.

    Where is your write-up about that?

    If you believe Sarah is so smart then you didn’t watch Game Change.And unlike Sarah’s daughter,my only 21 year old daughter is in the United States Army,just got back from Kandahar,Afganistan.And she doesn’t have any babies.Sarah keeps putting herself in the news because she needs attention,What Fox views isn’t giving her enough KOOLAID these days?????

    I don’t know if Sarah Palin is trying to get votes.

    But if she did, so what?

    Anyway, this article is a good example of people trying to make up controversy for no reason. ( they just have to attack and smear Sarah Palin)

    Well, of course she is – what mother wouldn’t root for their own child?

    Honest to God, the media is so downright stupid that they are rapidly approaching extinction – which would be wonderful…IMO

    Stupidity abounds in this country – look at all the world/lifechanging things happening all over the world and this is what the media focuses on – a mother supporting her daughter on a dancing show? I hope Bristol wins the stupid mirror ball trophy……………

    No matter what Palin does people complain basically if you are a beautiful strong woman they make you the enemy of the world. It is sad that a woman who is strong is tortured in this country as they do Palin and I thought we were free thinker here but I guess not when it comes to women

    I agree with L Nelson! What is wrong if Palin is trying to get votes for Bristol? I sure do what I can to help each of my children and grandchildren and be supportive in getting support from others for them! Yes, Sarah Palin is a whole lot smarter than you liberal Left media lackeys –that is why the Lefties continue to use her and her family to get higher ratings –the Left media is not smart enough to do it any other way! LOL

    Sarah Palin is not just “any mother” since she has an (infamous) name and an idiotic fan base to help push her daughter’s agenda. Your last sentence only made your comment look immature and unimportant.

  15. Sue Long Says:
    September 28th, 2012 at 12:08 pm

    Bristol doesn’t need Sarah’s help. The Palinbot cult will figure out a way to cheat the voting system. Hopefully the klutz will get voted off next week.

    Dancing with the stars is nothing but a popularity contest! It makes a mockery of out real dance competitions! Only professional dancers like myself have the knowledge and ability to jugde dance competitions.
    As an inventor of the New York 3 count hustle and former hustle dance and Latin Dance Champion, it is my opinion that DWTS is as phony as a 3 dollar Bill!
    And Bristol Palin is awful! She looks like a Hippo in an TUTU(can you say Walt Disney’s Fantasia!
    Several Seasons ago Giles Marini was robbed of the Mirror Ball Trophy! He’s back and I believe he’s got the best Moves of any of the contestants but due to the way they allow winners to be chosen, he may get robbed again!
    Sarah is a loser and she’s soon to be joined by Romney/Ryan and countless other Republican Misfits!

    Let me let you in on a secret. Game Change was made by a bunch of Obama liberal donors. Sarah Palin should feel honored that she made Hollywood’s hit list just like Bush and Reagan. It is what the liberals do in Hollywood. Hollywood thought Palin was going to be the GOP nominee and the movie was their sick gift to the liar in the WH. The movie showed you how sick Hollywood had become.

    So what did Sarah and her family did to you so tht you hate her so much. Name it ? she did personaly damaged you so tht you can’t stand her. Every family has a black sheep and if you think you are perfect,You wait. You will get your turn. It may not be this moment but next hour or year. You didn’t live long enough see yet but it’s coming. Sarah Palin is supporting and rooting for her daughter is normal and natural. If you do not understnad you are lower than human being @#$% period. She and her family is not going away any soon so check if you have pepto-Bilmol in you medicine cabinet.I hope they get rich !!!

    Well, we could look at the situation this way; Palin probably is trying to get votes for her daughter. This will keep her busy. It actually may make her a good mother, because she is not in any way a good politician. Keep focused on your child, and leave the politics for those who a far better equipped to understand just what really is going on Girl.

    ALL family members of ALL the contestants on DWTS try to get votes for their family that is competing. Kim Kardashian tweeted her brother Rob’s DWTS number and said it was a number to call Justin Beiber to Justin’s MILLIONS of fans. Sarah has not cheated like Kim did for Rob.

Didn’t Cher want people to vote for Chaz,Don’t they all want votes, that is how the show works.

    Then maybe you think she should be out getting votes for that doofus disastrous failure Obama.

    marie, Sarah Palin’s son is in Afganistan right now. It’s his second time in the mid-east.

    Game Change was a comedy. It was made by Hollywood liberals. They did the same thing to Bush and Reagan.

    Sarah’s trying to get Bristol votes. While she was mayor of Wasala,the family was disfunctional. Tohe books don’t show her side like”dd was “mommy” and ” “daddy” while Sarah was responding to her message from God to run for office.The entire family is a joke. Bet the books coming out don’t describe her as she is describe in “The Rougue,Searching for the real Sarah Palin”.

  35. Chingate Says:
    September 28th, 2012 at 3:59 pm

    Game Change was written by 2 well-known and respected political pundits with co-operation by Steve Schmidt and Nicole Wallace. Schmidt was J. McCain’s campaign manager, and Wallace was assigned to deal with Palin. She drove everyone nuts and Schmidt’s big regret was that he suggested Palin to counteract the Hillary effect.
    Of course, Failin’ Palin is making a big show of supporting Bristol. The longer she stays in the news, the more attention Narcissistic Sarah will get.

  36. khalil Says:
    September 28th, 2012 at 4:08 pm

    Sarah’s son joined the Army to stay out of jail. Serving in Afghan means he followed orders. It doesn’t make him patriotic !!

    Stop trying to make something about nothing.

    It is a pity that the Palin haters are green with envy and have to make things up in order to vilify and smear Sarah Palin and create controversy.

    By the way, the movie “Game Change” is a Hollywood hit piece. Game Change isn’t journalism; it is gossip-mongering at its worst.

    The movie is largely anonymously sourced with the exception of former McCain staffers Steve Schmidt and Nicole Wallace. “Game Change” tries to make Steve Schmidt the hero, but as everyone knows he failed overwhelmingly to get his candidate elected president and he is now scapegoating Sarah Palin for his failures.

    Many former McCain aides ( and the McCain family-John, Cindy, and Meghan!) all have harsh criticism for the film and have called the film “historical fiction.” They openly dispute the malicious way in which Sarah Palin is portrayed in “Game Change.”

    When you compete on anything, its a shame if you
    ask people to vote for you. You win because you
    merit that, not by cheating and asking people to
    vote for you just because you think they should
    help the person beat the other dancing people that

  40. Ellen Says:

    Why is Palin running poletics to get Bristol to win DWTS. Because their name has already been
    tarnished. Its a shame that she would think that
    Bristol deserves to win by Republican votes versus
    by being a good dancer, which she is not. Some of
    your comments above saying that people are jealous of Sarah, you are mistaken. She just does
    not go away. People do not like her. PERIOD!!!
    Not even her REPUBLICAN Commrades, much less us

    See the movie “the Undefeated” for a more honest view of Sarah Palin over that HBO political hatchet job.

    Track Palin is serving his 2nd tour of duty, first in Iraq & now in Afganistan…what have you haters done for your country lately.

    This site proves the Palin name is a magnetic drae. Bristol is indeed a ratings booster for DWTS & should be paid mucho bucks for delivering all that extra pricey exposure to ABC & the other otherwise no-name contestants.

    September 29th, 2012 at 4:33 am

    The problems I have (along with many other, I’m sure) with Bristol being on DWTS, even though I admittedly don’t even watch it:

    1. She collects a fee for every appearance she makes on the show. In fact, she bought a house with her total prize money, which she later flipped and sold.

    2. She is a horrible dancer. Just look for clips on YouTube of her dancing on DWTS. She should have been gone within the first 2 weeks. Yet, she made it all the way to the end, “earning” 3rd place. There is just no way she got that far without the teabaggers flooding the phone lines, sending in votes for her.

    3. Aside from being Sarah Palin’s (not a “star”) daughter, what else has she done, besides going around the country, telling teenage girls “Abstinence is the only way to avoid teen pregnancy. So, don’t end up like me and keep it in your pants!”? Nothing. She is not a celebrity. Not even a D-List celebrity. I want to see the “I like Turtles” zombie kid on DTWS, since he’s just as big a celebrity as Bristol Palin, if not bigger.

    September 29th, 2012 at 8:29 am

    This article is absolutely dreadful……pathetic. I’m ashamed now for even allowing my curiosity to trump my common sense by clicking on the link to this mess.

    DWTS may be a dancing contest show, but like many have said, JUST LIKE AMERICAN IDOL, the winners aren’t ultimately determined by unbiased, professional dancing/performance experts; they are crowned (or not) by the general public.

    I’m not even going to comment on whether or not Bristol’s dancing deserves to be in the ranks of the best of the best, but the producers of the show are looking for RATINGS, not always the best dancers, and Bristol definitely puts money in ABC’s bank.

    This article is yet another illustration of the mainstream, progressive, entitlement-starved, leftwing media showing a hate-filled agenda towards a polarizing and innocent family.

    Shame on you, and shame on me for falling into the pit!

    Maybe this week they will give some attention to someone’s family besides Bristol’s. What a diva–she doesn’t even practice with the other dancers because the life is so much better in Arizona. And then she and Mark jetted off to Alaska so she could show him her new party house on the lake. Life is good when you are the center of attention and your entire family gets all those interviews to get you vote. Forget the dancing shoes–personal photographers and racy outfits and media attention gets you more votes than your practicing or the judges’ scores. Only the dumb are working long hours in California. For Bristol, it is PARTY time.

    Bristol did great. The Palins care about our great country . They are a great patriotic family. The hatred and jealousy for them is sick. What is your problem. ? Leave the family alone please. If you have to spew hate pick on some one who has done harm to
    The country and constitution some who has put our country 1n 16 trillion dollars in debt. That’s a reason to spew out your mean thoughts. Blame where blame is diserved. Don’t be sick and persecute the innocent.
