Sarah Palin: Bristol's 'Dancing' performance about "perseverance"

[This blog entry has been updated]

Former Alaska Governor and current TLC reality series star Sarah Palin says her daughter's Cha Cha Monday night to the tune "Mama Told Me (Not to Come)," "is a story of perseverance, taking personal responsibility and keeping her head up while having faith."

We know that's what we were thinking as we watched Bristol strip off her drab gray business suit to reveal a brilliant Tina Turner-esque red mini-dress dripping with eyelash fringe and begin to shake her booty to Three Dog Night's "Mama Told Me Not to Come."

The interview with Sarah Palin about her teenaged daughters TV dancing debut comes compliments of In Touch Weekly Magazine, which spoke to Bristol's mom in Wasilla, Alaska where, she reported she had a party in her living room Monday to watch the ABC reality series.

In Touch Weekly says Bristol's performance "seemed to play off her mother's conservative image by tearing off a suit to reveal a sexy red dress.

Actually, it was pretty clear, given that Bristol's dance partner told viewers during the show, "We're going to have Bristol dressed up kind of like her mom - and tear off this dress like Kabaam!"

"I've always looked like my mom growing up," Bristol observed adding, "but there have been times when I haven't."

Sadly, one Vegas oddsmaker thinks Bristol is a long-shot to win the ABC dance competition.

The Director of Race & Sports Book Operations at Wynn Las Vegas resort and casino, Johnny Avello is putting Bristol's for-entertainment-purposes-only odds at 25-1 -- slightly behind Michael Bolton and Florence Henderson, though not nearly as bad as the 75-to-1 odds he's given comedian Margaret Cho, can we all agree is everyone's pick to go home tonight?

But, wait a minute! "Dancing" host Tom Bergeron has tweeted:"DWTS producers seem rattled by who is going tonight...Guess they had high hopes for this star (aka thought they'd be ratings draw). Hmm...." Hmmm indeed.

Avello seems to think this season's "Dancing" is going to be won by either NBA star Rick Fox or former NFL quarterback Kurt Warner. Which, given the edge sports figures always seem to have in this competition, seems like a very safe bet.

Why is Bristol Palin a star, I don't get it.

Nothing wrong with liking some shaking Alaskan blubber. Bristol needs to lose 30 lbs -- maybe then I can tell where the ass begins and thighs end.

I understand. I just like a nice fat ass, and Bristol has one.

i thought Miss Palin did great, she is sweet, shy and endearing, I hope once she loses some of the jitters she continues on.

OH and, YOU dont have to be a Movie Star to be on this show, You just need a name..and an invitation from ABC.......and that means, no nameless bloggers, lol, I would say Miss Palin has a following now.......
