    Dancing with the stars is mostly about the most improved dancer and then who the people like best. Bristol has improved like 1000%, but so has Kyle. I actually hope he wins. He's great, funny and much more entertaining than the others two but no better than Bristol. Jennifer is from Dirty Dancing. She was a great dancer to begin with and hasn't improved that much.

    I know, I sound like a Dancing with the Stars geek. Honest, this is the first season I've ever watched it. I was curious to see how Bristol would be treated.
    It's on tonight BTW. :-)

    Amazing how they report on every aspect of her life, minus her accomplishments.

    One could argue that people do the same with Obama. I don't think Palin is stupid either. I think she's out of her depth in the political game because she was hardly prepared for the mud-slinging that comes with it as evidenced by what happened during the campaign with McCain.

    Charlie Gibson wouldn't have been able to answer his own question. He was out to make Palin look dumb and he succeeded because people didn't do their own homework on the "Bush" doctrine.

    Until you attempt to actually define it and put some numbers to it. So thats why its kept a vague and meaningless cliche that looks good on a bumper sticker.

Its something to look at, scan over, mock and ridicule and then move on to the real business at hand.
    There's a different phone line for each contestant. If the phone line was "clogged" it was clogged because people were voting for that person, not Palin.
    I voted one week. The phone was picked up and the recording said "thank you for voting for Bristol and hung up.

    Sure its specific, so lets cut the entire military. Thats a smaller government. Or lets cut all police and firefighters, thats also smaller government. Or lets cut infrastructure construction and maintenance, thats a smaller government. Or lastly lets just cut a branch, Judaical, executive, legislative?

    Saying smaller government could mean literally anything, and it should be especially obvious if you consider that if the phase "smaller government" is a specific argument than it leaves only one other option equally specific, larger government. If you think all politics can be summed up into a binary system you're denying reality.

    Everything you mentioned should be kept. Everything else goes. That's a smaller government.

    Palin is far and away the best candidate that the GOP could offer in 2012
