Bristol Palin has had enough of people crediting the tea party with her “Dancing With the Stars” endurance. And so have many Zap2it readers.

Mike Moran: “The judges who know dancing (and often the viewers) have placed her in
the bottom two six times. The viewers who are voting for her may or may
not be doing it because they are Republicans or Tea Party people, but
they are not voting for the best dancer which is the whole point of the

We’ll find out in the Week 9 elimination which group did the most voting.
