I really don’t watch this show but my mom is a huge fan. (I don’t mean she’s huge, I mean this is her favorite show.)
You don’t have to watch the show, just be sure to vote for Bristol. Help a single mom while making Obot heads explode.
Viewers can vote for their favorite teams by phone on Monday night during and up to 60 minutes after the DWTS performance shows. AT&T customers can also vote by texting the word “VOTE” and entering the number that corresponds to the team they want to support. Online voting at ABC’s official DWTS site will be open from the start of each episode on the East Coast and closes at 8 a.m. PT/11 a.m. ET on Tuesday mornings.
Here’s the number to call:
Bristol Palin & Mark Ballas — 1-800-868-3409 (aka 1-800-VOTE4-09)
If you want to vote for someone else, look the number up yourself.
I want to see Kirstie Alley paired up with Xenu.
… doing the volcano dance.
Bwahahaha — I always watch the show but don’t usually vote — I may have to this year. 🙂
I never watched the show until Jeralyn freaked out over Bristol. Then I only watched when she was on.
I think Jeralyn quit watching the show after that.
Here was the original post:
Exploding Obot heads, the next olympic sport.
It’s my favorite spectator sport. I had a blast voting last time. Every time a teen ager walked in the house, I demanded they hand over their phone so I could vote again.
Anybody seen this shit? This is a new ad — just released today:
Wow, look at the frame you see before you play (the poster frame). You can select any frame in the video you want for that, and the campaign chose that one. I’m not sure her staff wants her to win. 🙂
“Deer in the headlights”
I swear, Warren looks like Mrs. McGoo; Ron Paul like Mr. McGoo.
And Rush Limbaugh sounds like Daffy Duck (really!).
She’s smart. She’s real.
This E Warren bashing is trite.
Who else do we have on our side ?
Give me a break. This ad is as bad as Christine O’Donnell’s “I am not a witch” one & it isn’t bashing her to point that out — it’s a FACT. If she had to put out this kind of pathetic ad there must be big trouble for her in MA after the debate.
Now, the FACT that automatically equate pointing this out with “bashing” her says A LOT more about you then it does me.
And that’s another thing — what is this “our” side & why do you lump me in with it because MY side has a grasp on reality than you seem to have.
I look at what a candidate does, not what they say or what is said about them.
E Warren is on my side.
And sure take a break… ads are just propaganda from either side.
I will from now on give every woman candidate the benefit of the doubt because that’s what the other gender gets.
Women don’t trash women.
That’s how the other gender wins every time.
I haven’t “trashed” Warren — I trashed you — and I only have your word that you’re a woman & considering the other crap I’ve seen from you, I find you an untrustworthy source even on that.
Even though she might be an ass for using the native american BS to further her career, there are a lot of things I like about her. She’s sort of an old fashion liberal, in a good way. And I would like that sort of point of view in the mix of government.
Having said that, her “you didn’t build that” crap sure did turn me off. And then her professorial tone turned me off. And then the talking down to people daring to question her crossed the line. She’s an asshole. She’s a pompous asshole to be more precise. So I lump her in with the asswipes of the “new Dem” party like Obama himself. And I want her to lose. Life’s not fair as it turns out.
Aye Matey, She does have good liberal values.
As you say:”old fashion liberal, “:
That alone qualifies her for being on my side.
U know what??
if I can use my Slovenian ancestry to make connections and to get good with a client…all the better… that how life works. No I don’t have documentation either…but I believe my Grandma.
Grow up and get some priorities.
Pompous is in the eye of the beholder.
What I don’t like about her is that she comes across as being someone who does not accept or consider other people’s points of view. She has a her way or the highway vibe.
That scares me, specially in do-gooders.
Hold on to your cookies–it’s just bizarre how subjective perception is. How, oh how, could anyone see Obama this way if they have a shred of intelligence?
Leadership Begins With Character
That night, as my friends and I grew increasingly frothy, dismayed, and screechy about how Sarah Palin = The End of the World, my husband finally turned around from his barbecue and made this comment: “I’ve lived in a lot of places and I’ve seen a lot of things, but never in my life have I seen a more impressive political figure than Barack Obama. He seems more intelligent and dignified than any candidate I’ve ever encountered. I definitely know that he’s more intelligent and dignified than me, and — with all due respect — I believe he’s more intelligent and dignified than anyone sitting at this table. He doesn’t seem at all alarmed about Sarah Palin, so why are you letting it get to you? Follow his example, and calm down.”
In other words: Look to your leader, and emulate his behavior.
This was a radical realization for me. Never before in my political memory had I known a leader whose behavior was so admirable that I might actually like to emulate it. There’d been leaders in my lifetime whom I was fond of, or impressed with, or amused by — but none whom I had ever admired as a role model for intelligent, dignified behavior. I closed my eyes and imagined what it might be like to have somebody in the White House whom one could look to for an example of how to remain calm and thoughtful in moments of crisis, stupidity, or sorrow.
It looked good to me, and it still looks good.
That is who Barack Obama is — a person of admirable character — and that is who he has remained for me over these last four years. I have not agreed with his every decision, but never once have I seen him break his cool, lose his composure, or abandon his insightful perspective — even during the most serious and/or absurd national disasters. Whenever I am on the verge of panic about the future of this country, I look to my president to gauge his response, and I follow his example. He has remained calm this entire time, so I have remained calm this entire time. In other words, shocking as it may sound in our disillusioned age, I trust him to lead.
I don’t know how many more chances I will get during my lifetime to live in a country that is managed by a leader of emulation-worthy intelligence and dignity. For all I know, it may never happen again. But I would at least like another four years of admiring the most powerful person in the world, and that — more than anything else — is why I am voting for Barack Obama in November.
If a guy who jumps on a plane & heads to Vegas after learning our ambassador & 3 others were killed in a terrorist attack is more dignified than you, then you must have been raised in a barn.
I don’t think I ever read as drippy a book as hers. My BFF wanted me to go see the movie, but I had wasted more time and money than I wanted to already.
She’s also the one the vile progs raked over the coals for her “first world problems” — marriage breaks up & she gets to travel the world for a year & then she writes a book to whine about it, blah, blah, blah. But they like her now.
That’s the thing about the vile progs that I really can’t stand — not their ignorance, not even their outright stupidity, but their complete lack of consistency.
And that’s why Andrew Sullivan has wet dreams about The One, and Chris Matthew gets leg tingles at the sight of The One.
If you met this woman in real life and she told you that you would be edging away and looking around nervously for police or security.
Srike 1 Klown for making me text! The Klown has been in love in with Sarah Palin from day 1. 👿
That is why they put all their effort into destroying her and her family’s life their number one priority. Even though I disagree with many of Palin’s politics, that was something I could never forgive. The hate that came out of the new Dem party was even more over the top than when they did it to Hillary. I was already on my way out of the party after Hillary, but that sealed it.
They, the media, entertainment industry, pundits, and the new Dems, showed their true character when that happened. And frankly, I don’t give a fuck what your politics are, when you’re that evil, I want no part of you.
THIS THIS THIS THIS
When Palin was elected Gov of AK, my husband came home with the all the details of her record fighting corruption and how Dems loved her too. I have ties to AK which is why it hit our radar so we both discussed what we had heard about her and how great it was for the state.
A couple of years later, long after NPR flipped on Palin for VP, now my husband kept bringing up distortions of her record as facts. And despite trying to remind him of that day she became Gov and how NPR flipped the narrative he kept bringing up the lies. Insisting that NPR was a reliable news source.
Eventually, NBC of all places started confirming my corrections of NPR. It was in bits and pieces but I would point to the tv as another one of the distortions fell.
It’s been bizarre to watch in my own home. He usually has a long memory but the Palin hate-fest twisted those facts into something else. And it was all because she was effectively battling Obama with Facebook and Twitter. She was in his noodle and it showed every time Obama spoke as another one of her narratives was dropping out of his mouth.
Like others, I don’t support all of her policies but at least get the facts right.
I always want to know what is the politics that someone disagrees with Sarah Palin on? That’s a serious question. 👿
Oops, didn’t mean to inspire you to type. 😉
The major ones was while she vetoed the bill which attempted to deny gay benefits as unconstitutional. Which was great. But she stated she supported the legislature amending the state constitution in order to do so later. I understand the freedom of religion aspect of gay marriage but I do think it is unconstitutional to attempt to deny such rights. She was correct with her actual record but not her stated policies. So technically that one is a bit of a wash but still a concern.
And iirc the other one was privatizing Social Security because it was just a big gift to Wall St in implementation and maintenance fees and even more money for them to gamble away. Certainly, something needs to be done, but handing over all that cash to those crackheads isn’t a solution. And in all fairness that might have been just touting McCain’s planks. But it was another concern.
If you met any woman in life talking like that even about her own damn husband, you’d call her a creepy Stepford Wife.
Seriously. What she just said is that she has checked her brain and judgement at the door, and happily, to let the embodiment of her dream man archetype do all the thinking, while her place is to smile and trust.
The world is upside down, because D women these days are either raging nasty harridans or spineless whining doormats. And you know who is inspiring and empowered and kicking ass all over? Republican women.
I need a fucking drink.
“We ALL bundle!”
Goodness knows I’ve looked, I haven’t found an ounce of character in Obama’s life. No good deeds that didn’t benefit him that is.
No kidding. He’s like a wasteland. In contrast to Romney, who’s impressive when it comes to good deeds and charity.
whoa is this person brainwashed or what?
this story made me laugh. never underestimate kids.
complaints on meeschelle’s school lunch menu.
now a black market on chocolate syrup in some schools
reminds me of when I told my son if he wanted a dollar to go earn it.
I thought he would help a neighbor clean up their yard. instead he a some of his friends found playboy magazines and sold the centerfolds to some teenagers for 50 cents a piece. He was only 8 years old at the time
Sounds like something my kid would have done. lol
How’s that school lunch program working for ya’ Michelle ? Hee, hee.
Ketchup is a vegetable 🙂 A necessary ingredient for fries.
And was the lunch program funded by stealing from food stamps or was that just her exercise initiative? /s
You would think the Obamas with their poverty-filled childhoods…cough…cough…would remember that poor kids actually rely on school meals for something that sticks to their ribs and feeds their brains.
It takes an Obama to bring hunger pains to the entire school year verses just the summertime.
NPR survey- Mitt taking the rural areas in the battleground states. Can someone explain to me why they think this is news? Serious question. They seem to imply Obama took the rural areas last time around? Uhm, not here in PA- the whole bloody state went red except for the persistent pockets of pus around Philly, Pittsburgh and State College.
Duh- here’s the link
Obama may have lost rural areas, but not by the big margin he’s losing them now.
That’s why PA is much closer now.
So does this mean there will be more or fewer voters with envelopes that have Obama written on them this time our here in bitter clinger land?
There will be more Romney votes and fewer Obama. Let’s say there are 100 voters in rural town A. In 2008, 52 of those voters went for McCain and 48 went for Obama. In 2012, 56 will go for Romney and 44 will go for Obama. Those number counter the big votes Obama gets from urban areas, like Phily and Pittsburgh. It would be helpful for Romney to win, if there’s a low turnout in big cities. But it would be even better if more women reject Obama and vote for Romney.
backtrack and meeeschele on the view, talk about marriage , his election and Libya.
I am just so underwhelmed
Ugh, I cringe just reading The View in a sentence. 🙂
How many times has he been on that show?! Its seems like he’s on there once a month. But no time for Netanyahu. Incredible, noble character!
f*cking eye candy.
You can vote for DWTS on Facebook:
They finally played it out west.
Bristol is starting out way better than she did last time. She looks like she’s in better shape too.
The only problem is it looks like everyone who is back made it at least to the semi-finals, which means they all have somewhat of a fan base. I don’t know how Bristol’s fan base will stack up against the others.
