I can see the entire family sitting in the audience cheering wildly and others in the crowd holding placards that say we can see Russia from our house.

LOL! I am waiting to see if Sarah figures out a way to turn Bristol's DWTS's appearance into a political opportuntity.

I'll be giving this season a miss then. Seems being an attention seeker runs in the family and they will go to any lengths to get it. Just wait until she gets what she wants and cry's foul when its not HOW she wants it, just like good old Mom.

This season looks pretty good to me. I will especially enjoy seeing David Hasselhoff, Margaret Cho, Florence Henderson and Bristol too.

I've never watched that dumb ass show in the first place and I sure as hell won't be starting now.

How do you know that family so well?

In relation to her mother, she does not have to seek attention. All she has to do is to show herself at any even, and the photographers will be following her and people will be asking questions. She is not more attention seeker than anybody else that for whatever reason has become a celebrity.

What do you have against a teenager who wants to make money?

This question wasn't directed at me but I'll answer it anyway.

If it were my teenager, as a parent I would counsel them to put integrity and self respect above money and to develop a long range educational/life plan rather than grabbing at opportunistic straws. If in any way I believed that Bristol were doing this for some quick college cash I'd be all for it but it seems that she's abandoned her college and career plans to follow in her mother's camera chasing footsteps.

Its no way to begin an adult life and to raise a child. Bristol Palin has every opportunity now for a good education. Chuck and Sally Heath may have not been capable of paying for a decent education for Sarah but Bristol's parents sure as hell can do that now. Instead they've chosen the cheap glitter of pop culture. It shows exactly what the priorities in that family are.

They are nothing short of a disgrace and embarrassment to this state.

Here is what I think. Sarah Palin is a very controlling woman. I think Bristol just may be doing this to get out from under her mother's thumb a little bit............to have a decent amount of money she can call her OWN. IMHO.

Doing DWTS's is not like dancing at a strip club...........it's a perfectly honorable way for a 19 year old ADULT to earn a nice chunk of change.

The experience did wonders for Kelly Osbourne, it lifted her self esteem and from what I understand, she still dances to keep in shape.

This experience might help Bristol to "come into her own" a little bit........out of the sphere of her mother's influence.

I wish her well.
