Oh, those irascible Palin kids. First Willow Palin called someone a “f—-t” for dissing her mom on Facebook, now Bristol‘s getting in on the action. Unsurprisingly, the Dancing With The Stars‘ contestant took umbrage with competitor Margaret Cho saying Sarah Palin made her daughter perform on the show as payback for damaging her campaign for Vice-President in 2008. “Let me shamelessly steal from Saturday Night Live,” Bristol posted on Facebook, “Really, Margaret? Really?…The show approached me. I thought about it. I made the decision. After first worrying for me in terms of being exposed to those who hate us for what we believe in, both my mom and my dad became my number one supporters.”
Despite bemoaning Cho’s “hurtful and false narrative that people promote to make my mom look bad,” she repeatedly refers to the comedienne as her “friend.” Maybe that chumminess is why she thought she could get away with her final bon mot. “You say you ‘don’t agree with the family’s politics at all’ but I say, if you understood that commonsense conservative values supports the right of individuals like you, like all of us, to live our lives with less government interference and more independence, you would embrace us faster than KD Lang at an Indigo Girls concert.” Haha, because Cho identifies as a bisexual, right? That’s why you made an incoherent reference to famous lesbians, Bristol? Lolz-a-rama! You’re sure to grab Cho’s audience with “commonsense conservative” actions like that. Cho has yet to give her two cents on Bristol’s bit of “outreach,” but we’re sure it’s coming.

Dancing With The Stars ended last week and yet it seems like there’s always some new gossip regarding the show’s participants. First up on the docket today is the news that Margaret Cho, who was kicked off early this season, is claiming that Bristol Palin was essentially forced to do the show by her Mama Grizzly, Sarah, to help repair their family image. Cho wrote on her blog:
Why did Bristol do Dancing with the Stars? I heard from someone who really should know (really should seriously know the dirt really really) that the only reason Bristol was on the show was because Sarah Palin forced her to do it. Sarah supposedly blames Bristol harshly and openly (in the circles that I heard it from) for not winning the election, and 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 Palin to run in 2012 with America behind her all the way. Instead of being supposedly “handicapped” by the presence of her teen mom daughter, now Bristol is going to be an “asset” – a celebrity beloved for her dancing.
We actually think Bristol should be beloved for her abstinence PSA, but that’s us. Of course this is speculation, but the Palins are clearly a calculating family who have an image to uphold. And speaking of people who need image rehabilitation, DWTS has allegedly put Lindsay Lohan on their short list of dancers for next season. An obviously Massachusetts-bred anonymous source tells Radar Online “The girl can dance. Lindsay is wicked talented.” We love the insanity behind the casting process for this show. Melanie Griffith is desperate to be on and they won’t have her, but random folks like Kyle Massey make it to the finals and addicts like Lindsay are coveted and political daughters are forced into it. These are your “stars”, America!

Season 11 of Dancing with the Stars premiered last night, with perhaps the most exciting, eclectic cast yet. Teen mom Bristol Palin shook what Sarah gave her, The Situation supplied Seaside fist pumps, and Audrina Patridge sent tongues awaggin’ with her high-gloss legs and abs of steel. Margaret Cho performed a slapstick Viennese waltz and The Hoff violated our eyeballs with his gyrating hips.
At two hours long, the show gets snoozey, so we’ve taken the liberty of rounding up the Top 5 Moments, tossing in some slo-mo and a loop for maximum enjoyment.
It’s time once again to discuss the latest batch of “stars” to rumba their way into our hearts on Dancing With The Stars! We’ve known for a few days that we’d get to see The Situation and Bristol Palin gyrate and smear spray tan all over a professional dancer, but today the complete list of celebs has been revealed and it’s actually pretty impressive. The “star” power is more potent than in past seasons – there’s hardly anyone on there that we’ve never heard of! We might not even have to use air quotes around the word “star”! In fact, a lot of these people have done work we love and respect, it’s freaky. Check out our gallery of who’s who and our predictions for how they’ll fare under the watchful eyes of Bruno, Carrie Anne and of course,Ã‚Â Tom Bergeron.

It’s been a big day for bonkers Myspace blogs! Margaret Cho took to the web today to see Celebrities Against Palin (“with Sarah Palin at [John McCain's] side, they have actually become the worst ticket imaginable”) and raises them one hatef*ck fantasy (” I am kind of obsessed with f*cking her”).
“You could have that real mature, straight to the point, adult, over forty, gonna cum multiple times with a big, oversize t-shirt on and nothing else and ‘I don’t care what I look like cuz I am gonna bust nuts in your curl’ kind of f*cking with her.”
Is there more? Oh, yeah—a lot more. Scandalist just wonders how Cho forgot to include a “mooseburger” reference.
