Dancing With The Stars rigged!

Publication: National Enquirer
Date: 6 June 2011

The Enquirer goes with a cover story saying Dancing With The Stars is rigged this season, and they put pictures of the finalists Kirstie Alley, Hines Ward and Chelsea Kane on the cover.

Here's the thing. They said the same thing two months ago and predicted the eventual winner would be Kirstie Alley or Kendra Wilkinson, two names well known to the readers of gossip rags.

Hines Ward won. He's not well known to the gossip world, but he's an athlete. Athletes do really well on this show.

This is exactly the type of story I had in mind when I started this blog, a time when the Enquirer expects that everyone has the attention span of a gnat and it will be ignored that their bold prediction of just two months ago was complete horseshit.

Guess what, Enquirer? I don't have the attention span of a gnat. I publish on the Internet, where nothing ever completely disappears down the memory hole.

The Enquirer prints lies, guesses and nonsense with astonishing regularity. This blog is here to catch the worst cases.

You're welcome. I'm glad to do it.

If that bland, slob on ice Bristol Palin lasted as long as she did, the show is totally rigged.
Good think the only thing she has to do to get knocked up was to lie there like a wet sack of cement.

The voting from the public kept Bristol on, and the people who lost the last election wanted to stick it to the non-idiots. I think it was rigged to make sure she lost, because having her win could have completely killed the ratings. I believe the Palins took the deal to call off their dogs or the voting system was changed because what they really wanted was the $50,000 per show appearance fee.

If you are ever confused about the behavior of a Palin, ask how someone can make money and the confusion usually goes away.
