Skip to comments.ABC SWEARS safeguards prevent VOTE FRAUD: dwts Mired in 'BRISTOLGATE'
Posted on 11/18/2010 2:21:56 PM PST by rface
Bristol Palin's head-scratching elevation to the finals of Dancing With the Stars is still triggering outraged cries of indignation and vote-rigging (and a shotgun blasted TV set), with several critics charging that Tea Partiers used fake email addresses to flood the ballot box in favor of the chief grizzly's cub. "Who knows if the process is ideal?" said the program's executive producer.
"But the voting is exactly the same" as it's always been, he added. "I wish they could take a deep breath and get some perspective." Network officials are standing by the vote results. Safeguards exist to prevent vote fraud, but they refused to reveal what those safeguards are, reports the Los Angeles Times. One thing's for certain, the final dance-off will be a doozie. Even Rush Limbaugh is now in on the act, warning Tea Party supporters to be ready for an angry backlash again Bristol. "The left is miserable; they're fit to be tied over this!" crowed Limbaugh. "I love it!"
She has had some rhinoplasty, hasn’t she?
shame on you for even voting once for jen grey. You know the left will be out in force next time to vote against bristol
Watching this show is an idiots folly anyway. Why waste the time?
But I love how it demonstrates how unhinged liberals are. They shoot their TVs because the daughter of a conservative won. ROFLMAO. Gotta love it when libs prove they suffer from a mental illness.
This is hilarious
I hope the so-called “Tea Partiers” who are supposedly responsible for this, in this case anyway emulate SEIU, ACORN, and AFSCME and vote many times. Why not even get dead relatives to cast some votes???
Anything to drive the dimwits crazy....
Funny how this is headline news with the lame stream media. just goes to show how much the Palins get these Liberals’ panties in a bunch.
Because beautiful dancing is beautiful. And I apreciate beauty better than I apreciate good spelling.
I dont watch this show. I only go to the website and vote for Bristol. I dont care about Bristol, but I enjoy seeing libtards getting all tied up in knots.
we waste the time so watch liberals head explode when she win, its only for shits and giggles nothing more
People are voting for her so she can move out her momma and daddy's house
With all the things going on in the world and America that could make you want to shoot your TV, Bristol is the trigger. You are right, liberals are truly unhinged psychologically. They seem to florish on anger.
I’m willing to make the Librards this deal: We’ll quit screwing with your elections on DWTS when you quit screwing with our elections for congress and president.
Golly, those flippin’ tea partiers!
Jennifer grey had a disastrous nose job that changed her look and possibly ruined her career.
she’s incredible shape for her age and an incredible dancer. Certainly better than Bristol but so what? I and everyone else will just have to decide whether to vote for Bristol in the next round.
That is all.
Hillbuzz has this whole Operation Bristol thing going on. According to them for every legit email address you have, you can register a user name on abc and vote 10 times per email address. While I will never give abc my real email address, suffice it to say that Brisol will get 26 votes from me Mon night via phone and two throwaway addresses.
I had so much fun Weds morning going to liberal sites and watching venom volcanoes explode that I was in a great mood the whole day. Those dimwitted libs failed to consider that conservatives never voted on their silly show before and now we are out in droves just to mess with their poor little heads.
Everyone at home has to shut their mouths while this show is on ....or go upstairs or outside. There is no room for giggles with this contest. The mirror ball trophy is akin to the Lombardi Trophy or the Stanley Cup
I hope the so-called Tea Partiers who are supposedly responsible for this, in this case anyway emulate SEIU, ACORN, and AFSCME and vote many times. Why not even get dead relatives to cast some votes???”
After the voting fraud done in Nevada & Alaska, PAYBACK can be a beeotch, can it not???
Wow. I don’t watch this show but the comments on that site are amazing. The left/Democrat/hate Palin crowd is out in force. It’s supposed to be (according to the “progressive” crowd) us conservative/Republican/”teabaggers” that “spew hate”, but nothing rivals the hate spew of the collectivist conformist superior intellects of the left ...
Too bad the contest has turned political, I would have voted for Baby.
I want to vote early, and often.
I think it was a disaster. Before, she had a distinctive albeit cute look; now, she doesn't look like anything.
I thought she looked a lot different than when she was in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”. She had more of a schnozz back then.
She has said in interviews that she regrets that nosejob and it was one of the worst decisions of her life.
They post the phone numbers and allow you to start voting for all of them BEFORE any of them dance. So much for any supposed dance purity in the voting.
I remember voting George Hamilton and he stayed on a few weeks because he was entertaining although a poor dancer. People just liked him.
Take it for what it’s worth, but The Enquirer is ready to print a story that Willow is pregnant! IF she is, Palin is cooked! In my opinion Sarah should have kept those girls away from the limelight and computer. I hope it’s not true though. :(
The only accurate words in the show title are “with” and “the,” but I love it too.
The nose job was botched. She said she “went in a celebrity and came out a stranger”. However, with that figure and at a slight distance when she dances she looks like the 20 year old Jennifer Grey.
Libs have nothing better to do than scream cheating and stealing elections....American Idol has the same problems, heck they even have a website called “Vote for the Worst” to screw up the show.
I have to admit - it IS funny watching them go over the edge... ( ok - I feel a little guilt about enjoying their misery... I'll learn to deal with it)
Liberal whiners are going to whine. It's what they do, it's who they are. And it's funny as hell.
I have never watched the show, but I am going to watch it now and vote. And guess for whom?
Damn that Levi
Every contestant can have fan voters registering numerous email addresses to cast extra votes.
I guess the other dancers just aren’t popular enough
Get on Dr Scarpetta’ ping list and we’ll teach you how Monday night. Think we should post Monday nights thread on Activism?
Especially given the voter fraud perpetrated in Minnesota two years ago that actually mattered! As I recall, the news reacted to that news like this:
(insert white noise here)
(chirping crickets here)
“Gotta love it when libs prove they suffer from a mental illness.
With all the things going on in the world and America that could make you want to shoot your TV, Bristol is the trigger. You are right, liberals are truly unhinged psychologically. They seem to florish on anger.”
I’m not a big fan of all this silly dancing stuff. But it may be worth voting for Bristol just to cause that kind of reaction.
Not Bristol, but Willow, she is 16 yrs old!
OR the terrorist that just skidded in NY!
Some people enjoy watching baseball. Others enjoy watching football. Still others enjoy watching tennis, NASCAR and other racing events, marathons, ice skating, weight lifting, the olympics, you name it. Others enjoy watching people dance. There’s nothing wrong with any of this. I would encourage people to participate in these activities and not just watch them, but watching is okay.
Watching a dancing program on television is not an idiot’s folly anymore than watching any of the things mentioned above is. It’s all a matter of preference. One is not better or worse than the other.
In life, I believe most people prefer to see someone be rewarded deservedly so. If Palin is the best dancer, she deserves to win. If she is not, she doesn’t. And I don’t think it’s out of line to be a little miffed if the person with the most talent related to the show, doesn’t win.
Is the Left acting like a bunch of idiots on this? Obviously some of them are. I don’t think you have to be a person on the left to be miffed if talent doesn’t win out in the end though.
The difference is Jennifer is a professional dancer.
“American Idol has the same problems, heck they even have a website called Vote for the Worst to screw up the show.”
I thought that was the whole point of the show! It’s like the modern day version of the Gong show.
I know that I’m very well read thank you
to register. It is at the very top of the page to the right in tiny little font. I used a throwaway email address and put 1/1/19** as my year of birth. No way will I give them my real one.
On the night of the competition (Monday) there will be a “VOTE” icon somewhere on the page. Just sign in and follow the links. According to Hillbuzz you can vote 10 times per registration. I have not tested it yet.
To vote by phone call 1-800-868-3407. You will hear a message saying “thank you for voting for Bristol and Mark” You can vote six times per phone used. Call right at 8:00pm if you can. The calls go right through then...any later and there are a lot of busy signals.
