Pathetic

Palin Derangement Syndrome caused a number of poor souls to complain to the Federal Communications Commission about Bristol Palin’s success on Dancing With the Stars.  Who knew a hug could be so controversial:

Another source of grievances was a hug delivered to the 20-year-old Palin by one of the show’s judges, Carrie Ann Inaba.

Noting that “no other dancer was called over for a hug,” one viewer claimed that the clinch was a “signal for the GOP/Tea Party supporters of Sarah Palin to ‘stuff’ the vote for Bristol Palin, who on both dates had to be dragged over the dance floor.” The writer added, “My 96 year old Mother-in-Law can dance better than Ms. Palin…I want my Government to protect me the viewer from deceptive practices.”

A Cerritos, California resident reported that the “physical contact” made by Inaba “sets the contestant up for thinking the judge will favor them. She was impartial to one and partial to the others.”

Time to get a life, people.  At some level it’s a popularity contest, and Sarah Palin is pretty popular in some circles.  Oh, and at the risk of jeopardising my man card, I saw enough to know that Bristol wasn’t very good, but she improved quite a bit by the end.
