Moonbats: FCC Must Do Something About Bristol Palin's Success on "Dancing With the Stars"

Posted by Dave Blount at December 8, 2010 1:16 PM

If the FCC's creepy authoritarian commissioner Michael Copps's bid to expand the agency's power is successful (see here and here), we can expect to see much more of this:

In the days after Bristol Palin was voted into the finals of "Dancing with the Stars," viewers from across the country wrote to the Federal Communications Commission accusing the ABC show of everything from running a "payola type program" to "encouraging and promoting teen pregnancy." …
One viewer from Pittsburgh alleged that the show's voting system had been "fixed by extreme supporters of the Tea Party and Radical Right-Wing. I find that it has become a political platform for Sarah Palin to improve her image and ooze her political slime." The aggrieved correspondent continued, "Bristol is not a star, what did she do, she had sex and got pregnant. Lets reward her… I made several call to ABC's complaint line and I hope that their phone lines melt. It has become a political movement, with Tea Party websites instructing on how to vote for Bristol. Ridiculousness!"
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."

Less statist moonbat viewers, instead of demanding authoritarian intervention by the federal government, took matters into their own hands. Imagine the outrage if Bristol had finished higher than third.

Further unhinging the unhinged, just like her mom.
