Bristol and Mark Dance to Redneck Woman

By Gary P Jackson

I thoroughly enjoyed Bristol and Mark’s dance last night on Dancing With The Stars, so did the audience:

The judges, however, hit the couple hard because they didn’t follow the rules. Never mind the dance was great and the style popular at joints that play that kind of music.

All three judges gave the kids a 6, for a total score of 18, lowest of the night. We’ll have to see how the fans voted tonight to see if Bristol and Mark get to come back next week.

By Gary P Jackson

In the intro to Monday night’s dance Mark Ballas tells Bristol Palin she needs to “shake that ass” and shake it she does! She wasn’t a bad dancer the last time out, but Bristol has certainly matured since her last appearance on Dancing With The Stars two seasons ago. She and Mark impressed the audience and the judges with a great performance:

Watch the results show tonight at 8 pm, 7 central.

Dancing With The Stars Starts Tonight: Vote for Bristol and Mark!

I LOVE this photo of Mark and “Bristol the Pistol” because it drives the liberals INSANE. “Like oh, my God, she’s glorifying gun violence” [or something equally ridiculous]

By Gary P Jackson

OK, tonight’s the night, a new season of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars. [The All-Star Edition] This is going to be a great season, lots of talented stars. Obviously our hearts are with Bristol and Mark, they are such a cute couple and have wonderful chemistry together, but I have to say, it’s going to be a real competition. All of these stars won the hearts of America in previous seasons.

Part of the contestants’ scores come from fan votes. All of the stars have millions of fans who will be setting up groups to vote. You can certainly do the same for Bristol and Mark. So grab your friends and have some fun!

Also please note, you can vote multiple times after each show. [And use all three methods of voting to do it!] In the online voting you are only limited by how hard you want to work, as you can create as many accounts as you want, and vote from each one.

Here are a couple of blog entries from Bristol and Sarah that may help you understand ABC’s rules, if you haven’t voted before:

How to Vote for Us on DWTS

The couples dance on Monday nights for a score from the judges. Then the fans vote for their favorite. The judges score counts 50% and the fans 50%. The key to the judges score is that they convert it to a percentage. They take all the scores from the judges and add them together. Then that number is divided into the score for the individual couple. That gives the 50% that counts as the judges scores. Same thing with the fan vote. All the votes are totaled and that number is divided into the couples fan vote. The lowest combined judges scores and fan scores send a couple home.

There will be three ways to vote:

The first is by phone. We will not know the phone number for Team Ballin until show time on 9/24. The number will remain the same throughout the competition. Phone lines open as soon as the show starts and stay open for 1 hour after the show. Fans should try to phone vote as soon as the show starts. After they dance and at end of the show are the hardest times to get through and we want every single vote. You can vote on as many phones as you have access to. For the first half of the season, voters will be allowed the same number votes as the contestants. For example, the first week there will be thirteen contestants, so each type of account gets 13 votes. The second week it will go down to 12. Once they are down to 5 contestants or less, the fans still get 5 votes per account.

ATT users can text their votes by texting the word “vote” to the last four digits of the voting number. Once again you get the same number of votes as contestants. It is my understanding you can text votes and call votes from the same phone.

The final way is online. Go to http://abc.go.com/shows/dancing-with-the-stars/. On show nights there will be a vote tab. You have to have an account to vote online. You should make your accounts before the show starts because when the show is going the site crawls. You can vote with as many accounts as you make.

Dancing with the Stars is definitely a team effort. Bristol and Mark will do the dancing-the fans have to do the voting! Please be sure and support them with your votes on September 24!

The Phone Number To Use to Vote for Mark Ballas and Me!!

Thank you guys for asking about how to best vote for Mark and me on Dancing with the Stars All Stars! I’m so excited that I just got the official telephone number to use. It is:


Sarah posted this on Facebook this morning:

Bristol goes from joining Willow, Todd and buddies looking to fill the freezer a few weeks ago in the wilds of Alaska to the wilds of LA on the dance floor tonight!

I know how many worries we all have about the challenges facing us today, but in the midst of it all I’m really looking forward to taking time to just be a proud mom and cheer on Bristol as she does her thing on “Dancing With the Stars” tonight! It’s good to take a break from the heavy stuff and recharge your batteries with something like this uplifting, energetic, and positive competition.

If you tune in tonight (at 8/7c on ABC), I hope you’ll vote for Bristol & Mark (online at the DWTS website, by calling 800-868-3409, and for AT&T subscribers by texting the word VOTE to 3409), and I sincerely hope you have an enjoyable evening.

Sarah is right. There is a lot going on and many of us are extremely worried about the future of our nation. Taking a break to watch a fun competition is something I hope everyone will do. Dancing With The Stars is a fun family show, something everyone can enjoy. So watch and then vote for Bristol and Mark!

Stupid Liberal “Journalist” Loses Mind Over Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas’ DWTS “Gun Pose”

By Gary P Jackson

As a normal, red-blooded American male, I look at the above photo of Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas and think (a) Bristol is looking better than ever. Fit and trim. And (b) I really like Mark Ballas and am happy to see those two teamed up for the Dancing With The Stars All-Star competition. Bristol and Mark had great chemistry together when they danced before and will be real contenders this time around as they were in 2010.

Of course, not all of us are normal, somewhat well-adjusted people. There are always liberals to contended with. In this case here we have Jodi Jill the “National Celebrity Headlines Examiner” and a self-proclaimed award winning celebrity columnist.

When I look at Jodi Jill I don’t exactly see the happiness and joy I see in Bristol and Mark’s faces. [Nor do I see anything resembling fit and trim]

What I do see is a mentally deficient human being. Someone filled with malice and hate. Liberalism is a mental disorder, and Jodi Jill’s insane ramblings about Bristol Palin are Exhibit A of this fact:

Bristol Palin’s ‘Dancing With the Stars’ gun pose shocks after theater massacre

Bristol Palin hasn’t officially hit the dance floor and she already is posing for attention. The new Dancing With the Stars (DWTS) season released photos on Wednesday for the star and along with the rest of the all-star cast excitement is building. However, the latest photos released with Bristol Palin, all from ABC, could be considered disturbing.

Pamela Anderson looks sultry and stunning. Kirstie Alley looks strong and focused. The rest of the cast looks great, that is except for Bristol Palin. Her photograph is disturbing and gives a moment of disbelief as she emulates her fingers into a gun pose and appears to be blowing on it with her professional dance partner Mark Ballas doing the same. Obviously reflecting the statement of the “smoking gun,” it’s unbelievable it was released to the public.

So what’s so wrong with this picture? This gun pose has been used in movies for decades and rappers use it all the time, but times have changed. Only recently a gunman barged into a theater in Aurora, Colorado and killed 12 people and injured 58 others.

Since the July 20th shooting, the public has needed a break from the intensity of imaginary gun images as the real ones are all too harsh. Everywhere, including on tour with Madonna on the other side of the globe, the guns are being toned down as it just hasn’t been appropriate. On Dancing With the Stars, it seems so surreal to allow such a monstrous image as it is a family show.

What will be the punishment if some kids does this outside of their home after seeing this photo? An Oklahoma 1st-grader was suspended after making a gun out of their hand in classroom last year. Plus a gesture like this on a Los Angeles street at anyone will result in an arrest and trying it in front of a cop will result in worse consequences.

Bristol Palin’s gun finger pose is reprehensible. It’s disrespectful to victims in the latest shooting and it doesn’t take a brain scientist to realize that guns (or the images of one) has nothing to do with this reality show. While this young mother is billing herself as a role model, her gesture is all that is needed to expose what she is really thinking.

Amazing huh? I mean you have to be looking for something to be upset about, ever moment of your miserable life, to be as silly as liberals are.

Maybe Bristol and Mark are doing a “gun pose” because Bristol picked up the nickname “Bristol the Pistol” when she last competed. There was a time when one could say things like “Bristol the Pistol” without having to deal with deranged liberals. These lunatics have a knack for ruining everything. Their lives are miserable, so they wanna make sure they ruin life for everyone else too.

We all know the man who shot up the theater in Colorado was mentally deficient too. HE planned the attack. HE pulled the trigger. The sad part was this happened in a “gun free zone.” Had there been a few armed citizens at the theater, chances are they could have ended this lunatic’s killing spree long before the body count got so high.

When I see idiots like Jodi Jill, and read their insane ramblings, I wonder what makes them tick. I wonder how they function. I also wonder if they support Barack Obama who once told his mob of supporters at a political rally: “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun

Obama’s statement was more likely to incite violence than Bristol and Mark’s “gun pose,” don’t ya think?

And unlike Wasilla, Alaska, where Bristol is from, and it’s damned near mandatory that everyone own a gun, Obama’s Chicago, where it’s almost impossible to LEGALLY own a gun, is a freakin’ war zone! It’s not uncommon to see a dozen or more killed every single weekend in Chicago, mostly by guns that aren’t even supposed to be there! Just think what Chicago would be like if it were more like Wasilla. If law abiding citizens were allowed to have guns, how long do you think the thugs who terrorize Chicago would last?

It’s not the gun owners who are destroying the world, making it a more dangerous place, it’s the liberal control freaks. The fascists who want to control everyone. These loons who think they know better, when thousands of years worth of history proves they don’t! Liberals are the problem.

See, this is why liberals piss me off. I see Bristol and Mark, and I see a cute couple who will be fun to watch, and I hope will win. I look forward to the contest between all of the dancers. I just wanna enjoy something entertaining.

Instead I’m talking about gun control and liberal fascism.

Liberals screw up fun every single time. They are the enemies of Liberty, Freedom, and the American way of life!

Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas Dancing With The Stars, Week Three

By Gary P Jackson

As we roll into week three, Bristol and Mark dance the Fox Trot. This week’s exercise was to tell a story through dance. The concept here was Mark is homeless, and catches the eyes of a beautiful woman. He seeks to impress her and win her love.

I’m constantly struck by the chemistry these two have. They dance like they have been dancing together forever. Bristol is working hard at this, and it shows. The judges weren’t as impressed with the couple’s “acting” as I was though, and the scores reflected this.

Bristol and Mark weren’t the only ones to take a hit though, as Jennifer Greyness scores were way down this week, and she did not have the top score as she did the previous two weeks.

I was impressed with Bristol though. She took it all in stride and said she’d do better next week. I like that because she feels confident she’ll survive Tuesday’s eliminations, and she’s obviously in it to win it.

Seems like I say this every week, but I find myself really getting into this. I like these two together. They look good together. They dance well together. To me, they sell the idea they are a couple, for at least the few minutes they are on stage dancing, and that’s what it’s all about.

I hope these two keep going rounds. They are a real delight.
