Candace Cameron-Bure’s Costume Choices Called “Worse than Bristol Palin” – Nice!

As I’ve written before, Candice Cameron-Bure is trying to get through Dancing with the Stars with her dignity and modesty in tact.

Here’s a great clip where she explains how she balances Christianity and the sometimes sexy dances.

Great job, Candace!

(In the video below, her part starts at about 1 minute 15 second mark.)

    Cameron is getting our votes and she is handling Ballas well. She is very mature and has lived among liberal Hollywood all her life. Mark Ballas is an extreme liberal tool. He even tries to outshine every partner. He did it to Julianne Hough all the time. His tattoos are the worst I have ever seen. Why would any woman want to dance with that ugly mess exposed?

  • David

    Candace and Mark dance pretty good together.

    Candace Bure, like Bristol Palin, is a lovely, talented, decent woman.

    • Michelle Erb

      What is Bristol’s “talent”?

      • sadlyso

        Bristol became a wonderful mom straight out of high school. What kind of talent you’re looking for? something along the line of a $$$$$ and fame? or just being a bright and natural mom? Being a mom is not easy but she raise her son by herself as far as financial is concern. What is your talent, you must be a lot older than Bristol.

        • Michelle Erb

          I am not “looking” for any kind of “talent” because I am not the one who said she is “talented.” Just wondering what the poster could possibly have meant?

          Wonderful Mom? Seriously? I am old enough to know that wonderful Moms do not exploit their children in reality shows. Nor do they bad mouth the child’s father in front of the child, have trial daddy’s, laugh when the child uses profanity and fail to use any discipline. No do they complain about having to be home with the child in front of him

          And all that is just what she chose to show on her reality show.

          I cannot understand why her fans do not offer her constructive criticism instead of lavishing her with undeserved praise.

          • Claudia Hernandez

            Michelle Erb, who are you to judge? It is one thing not to like a person, but it is another to put down a woman as a mother or as a complete woman…meaning, just because she has made some mistakes, doesn’t mean she is not a decent woman. You don’t like her and instead of stating the ways in which you disagree with her, you are personally attacking her. NOW, what does that say about you?

          • Michelle Erb

            The fact that she is struggling as a mother is not what would keep her from being a “decent” person. On that count, my criticism is constructive. I hope she turns things around. I was just pointing out that your gushing tribute to her mothering is baseless. It also does Bristol as well as her child a disservice.

            My problem with her is that she is a person who enriches herself by spreading dangerous propaganda. The way I stand up for “never again” is that when I see that kind of dangerous talk I call it out. That is why I am consistently on these blogs, and why I do in fact continually call her out in the actual issues..

            The only time I attack her personally is to correct false information, expose hypocrisy, or stand up for children in general. Even then, I base my criticism on those parts of her life that she has chosen to show to the public. You guys all claim to care so much about children, yet when you see children being exploited on reality shows, you do not call it out, you praise it.

            Now stop shooting the messenger and tell me what makes her a “decent” person. Since you have a problem with people attacking “mothers” please tell me when you told her that the vicious attack on Wendy Davis and her daughters was indecent. It was also libelous, since all of the claims she posted have been debunked.

          • Corrie Nance

            Michelle Erb, I don’t find your comments about Bristol constructive at all. I find it to be very judgemental. I really don’t see why you think your ideas are better than someone else’s. I don’t see any dangerous propaganda on Bristol’s post’s. I don’t know what Bristol said about Wendy, I do know that Wendy misrepresented herself while she was running for office.

          • Michelle Erb

            Well at least you have not read it so you are not a hypocrite, unlike some of her other fans. The woman repeats debunked claims (and does not post retractions even if she admits elsewhere that she was wrong) posts petty attacks, and worst of all spreads white supremacist propaganda.

            Since you have not seen any of the false allegations I will not spread them further by repeating them here. I will just remain vigil. Hopefully Patheos will keep her in check now and she will stick to posting harmless little feel good blogs like the ones about the prom and the subway attack. If that trend continues I will gladly stop posting.

          • Harlow

            Like the incredibly sexist and misogynistic attacks against Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, and other conservative women by the media? Speaking of debunked claims, why do liberals still claim that Sarah Palin said that she could see Russia from her house when this has been debunked?

          • Michelle Erb

            A lot of us have spoken out against the Michele Bachman magazine cover, and the use of profane terms against the Palins. Do you think the fact that those attacks occurred makes what Bristol does okay?

            Please let me know when even one conservative woman speaks out about what was done to Sandra Fluke for weeks on end. Did you even know that she was not even talking about contraception for birth control purposes? That her actual testimony was that she paid for her insurance premiums herself, but that because the school got to choose the plan it would not even cover contraception for medical purposes- although it did cover Viagra. She then explained why women needed it for medical purposes. For that, an entire conservative attack machine called her a slut, and said she should have to make a porno for everyone to see.

            Did you speak out against the attack on Fluke? Sarah and Bristol did not. Sarah actually embraced the attacker. A lot of liberal women did speak out when Sarah, Bristol and Michele, were inappropriately attacked, and unlike the Fluke attack those were not done by party leaders. Why the double standard?

            Sorry you do not even realize that the Russia from her house thing is satire, so it hardly needed to be “debunked”. What she actually did say was not much better. .

          • Hgyu

            …. And why she said it.

          • Katepatate

            Why should we pay for anyone’s contraception? Be grownups, ladies, and buy your own or keep your knees together until you are married. Then you husband can buy it for you. Mine did.

          • Hgyu

            Then your husband can buy for you??? Why because you don’t think a woman can provide for herself?

            Truth is, it’s the insurance companies that pay for it. And why???? Because it cost them a whole lot less than the alternatives. That’s why.

          • Michelle Erb

            Practice your reading skills. We want the insurance that we already pay for to cover contraception the same way it covers Viagra and penis pumps. You only choose to make it about you.

          • Michelle Erb

            is that what you tell the virgins who take contraceptives for medical reasons?

          • Michelle Erb

            Does your husband let you help choose what kind he gives you? Did he give you permission to post here?

          • Hgyu

            I think most liberals know she actually said you can see Russia from parts of Alaska. And they know that the point is she said it in response to a question asking for her international affairs experience. Thing is, Tina Fey didnt have to change Sarah Pslin’s words much ( or at all) to get a laugh.

          • Michelle Erb

            The best skit was the one where Fey repeated Palin’s remarks – word for word.

          • Hgyu

            I know!

          • Katepatate

            Hgyu and Ms. Erb sitting in a tree throwing barbs at the Palins, one, two three. Go away you two miserable little Palin haters. Talk among yourselves.

          • Hgyu

            Makes sense to throw barbs since that’s really all Sarah Palin does. Well that and Palin Inc.

          • Katepatate

            If I were a betting woman, I would just bet that Ms. Erb believes that falsity.

          • Michelle Erb

            You would lose, but glad you are not judgmental.

          • Katepatate

            Oh, yes, Ms Erb, remain vigilant while all the time missing the huge log that is in your eye.

          • Darin Anderson

            Just curious, troller, what is the WP propaganda? I obviously don’t follow young Palin like you do and I’m not really a fan of her schtick. But calling out someone as a racist is pretty serious business. I’d hope you have something to back that up. I’m not saying you don’t, but if Sarah Palin’s lightning rod of a kid was pushing WP, it wouldn’t be front page of the Times, but some lowlife like Larry Flynt would be trumpeting it. Do you know something Larry Flynt doesn’t?

          • Guest

            ..

          • Darin Anderson

            WP= White Power= White Supremacy “movement”. I’m sure you already knew that, no? So really, you did mention it. I’m fairly familiar with the white supremacy types…using your term to not confuse you…because I find them hilarious. It’s like the Westboro Baptist Church. They’re a sideshow worthy of amusement and mockery. And I saw what you did there: “Sounds like you are already familiar with the materials”. You love that racism charge, don’t you? You just throw it out, because you don’t seem to have much else, and watch people cower. I choose not to play, tho. I’ve been called worse by better trolls than you. Sticks and stones and all that. Which takes us back to my original question…which you tried to dodge in a most clumsy way: What white supremecist…don’t get confused now…propaganda did young Palin push? Like I said before, I’m not doubting you. She very well may have, being not nearly as bright as she thinks she is. A little like you. Just a little…I’m not committing a micro aggression here. Just asking you to cite your charge. It should be simple and hopefully you’ll just answer and not play your awkward rop-a-dope.

          • Michelle Erb

            Scroll up a few comments. It just took me a while to set it all out.

          • Michelle Erb

            The difference between white supremacist groups and Westboro is that white supremacists groups do commit violence. Hardly a joke.

          • Darin Anderson

            Then you know little about them. If you think there are gangs of WSP (white supremacist groups…don’t get confused) running wild in the streets, you’re simply a fool. They talk a good game but very, very few act. There are knuckleheads of every stripe. Tim McVeigh, Bill Ayers. But it’s intellectually lazy to tar every mainstream movement, liberal or conservative, with a McVeigh or Ayers brush. I get the feeling you’re all about lazy, tho. But we’re having fun.

            What follows is a detailed listing of major terrorist plots and racist rampages that have emerged from the American radical right in the years since Oklahoma City. These have included plans to bomb government buildings, banks, refineries, utilities, clinics, synagogues, mosques, memorials and bridges; to assassinate police officers, judges, politicians, civil rights figures and others; to rob banks, armored cars and other criminals; and to amass illegal machine guns, missiles, explosives and biological and chemical weapons. [Each of these plots aimed to make changes in America through the use of political violence.]
            Most contemplated the deaths of large numbers of people — in one case, as many as 30,000, or 10 times the number murdered on Sept. 11, 2001.

            Here are the stories of plots, conspiracies and racist rampages since 1995 —plots and violence waged against a democratic America.

            July 28, 1995
            Anti government extremist Charles Ray Polk is arrested after trying to purchase a machine gun from an undercover police officer, and is later indicted by
            federal grand jury for plotting to blow up the Internal Revenue Service building in Austin, Texas. At the time of his arrest, Polk is trying to purchase plastic explosives to add to the already huge arsenal he’s amassed. Polk is sentenced to almost 21 years in federal prison.

            October 9, 1995
            Saboteurs derail an Amtrak passenger train near Hyder, Ariz., killing one person and injuring about 70 others. Several antigovernment messages, signed by
            the “Sons of Gestapo,” are left behind. The perpetrators remain at large.

            November 9, 1995
            Oklahoma Constitutional Militia leader Willie Ray Lampley, his wife Cecilia and another man, John Dare Baird, are arrested as they prepare explosives to
            bomb numerous targets, including the Southern Poverty Law Center, gay bars and abortion clinics. The three, along with another suspect arrested later, are sentenced to terms of up to 11 years in 1996.
            Cecilia Lampley is released in 2000, while Baird and Willie Lampley — who wrote letters from prison urging others to violence — are freed in
            2004 and 2006, respectively.

          • Michelle Erb

            The list goes on for pages, with several events every year, many resulting in death. Hardly harmless. Did you even know about the white supremacist bomb that was fortunately defused before it went off at a MLK king parade?

            Here is a link: http://www.splcenter.org/get-informed/publications/terror-from-the-right

          • Darin Anderson

            Bwahahahahahaha. Are you for real? 20 year old plots that barely if at all got off the ground? Hilarious!! This is what you see as dangerous? I guess I should be nervous that Patty Hearst and the SLA might stage a raid on Congress. Or Occupy:Tacoma might litter in a local park. You truly are a moron. Keep up the good work.

          • Michelle Erb

            As I said that was only the first year since Murr the list goes on for pages. Since you obviously will not follow the link, here are just two of the many more recent cases:

            August 16, 2012
            Seven people with ties to the antigovernment “sovereign citizens” movement allegedly ambush and murder
            Louisiana sheriff’s deputies Brandon Nielsen, 34, and Jeremy Triche, 27. The attack comes in a trailer park near New Orleans, where the deputies pursued suspects following the shooting and wounding of another
            deputy working as an off-duty security guard at an oil refinery. Those arrested include the group’s leader, Terry Lyn Smith, 44, Smith’s wife, Chanel Skains, and his sons, Derrik Smith and Brian Smith. Others are
            Brittany Keith, Kyle David Joekel and Teniecha Bright. Brian Smith is charged with first-degree murder and the others with related charges. The group, which traveled the country doing construction work, possess a
            stockpile of weapons. Its members haveoutstanding warrants in Nebraska, Tennessee and Louisiana.

            September 4, 2012
            ChristopherLacy, 36, shoots California Highway Patrol officer Kenyon Youngstrom atclose range after the officer stops Lacy’s vehicle, which had an obstructed license plate, on I-680 near Alamo. Lacy is fatally shot by
            another trooper, and Youngstrom dies the next day. An investigation intoLacy’s background reveals a large amount of antigovernment “sovereign citizens” literature on several computers at his home.

          • Michelle Erb

            Surely even a denier such as yourself remembers this one:

            August 5, 2012
            Neo-Nazi skinhead Wade Michael Page, 40, opens fire with a 9 mm handgun at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wis.,
            killing six and critically wounding three, including a police officer. Wounded by police, Page then shoots and kills himself at the scene. A U.S. Army veteran who was discharged in 1998 for “patterns of misconduct,” Page was a “patched” member of the Northern Hammerskins, a
            chapter of the Hammerskin Nation, a violent, racist skinhead group. He was also a fixture on the white power music scene who played in the bandEnd Apathy and several others.

          • Michelle Erb

            Is it still so funny?

          • Michelle Erb
          • Michelle Erb
          • Michelle Erb

            Larry Flynt? Why on earth would Larry Flynt care where Bristol Palin gets her propaganda, or care about Bristol at all? It is not like it is a sex scandal. Moreover, it is no secret that the Palins love to blow racially tinged dog whistles. So I can hardly imagine why you think this would help him sell magazines.

          • Darin Anderson

            The bigger question is why do you care? I pulled Flynt out of the air because he pretends to be a big investigative reporter. Somewhere floating around I have a newspaper sort of thing that “solved” the JFK assassination. The DeLorean video wasn’t a sex scandal, either.

            I can see why he didn’t report this tho. You know, being that your evidence is nothing more than a theory pulled out of your ass. Which is cool. We’re both trolls and it’s all part of the game, isn’t it?

          • Michelle Erb

            Four years ago an eight year old child was brutally tortured and murdered by a family acquaintance. At the time there was a lot of publicity and the monster who did it was quickly arrested, charged and convicted. After justice was done, the media frenzy died down, especially after the family made it clear that they wanted to grieve in private and did not want to see their tragedy exploited.

            As you know there has recently been a lot of media about cases where black children did` not get justice. Some where clear murders are treated as accidents and no investigation is even conducted. Some like Trayvon Martin where the police initially tried to sweep it under the rug did not make an arrest and ultimately the whole case was compromised.

            Most recently there was the case where Michael Dunn fired multiple shots and killed a black teenager over loud music. Dunn was on tape making horrible racist comments about the victim and other blacks. His neighbors were willing to testify about his violent tendencies, and his own girlfriend testified that at the time he had not claimed that the victim had a gun. Even though the evidence showed that the victim was in fact unarmed, the jury was unable to convict on that count, merely because Dunn now claims that he was.

            While we were on the excruciating fourth day of verdict watch in the Dunn case, Bristol had the nerve to write a blog about the four year old case and question why it was not getting publicity as well. She implied that it was a new case and that justice had not yet been served.

            You see the eight year old victim in that case was white and the perpetrator was black. Even though no one ever alleged that race played any part in the case, (the victim was chosen because the killer had access to him), it has become a cause celebre in what you refer to as the “WP” movement, simply because of the compelling photos of a scary black woman and an innocent white child. The case is being used as evidence of the “war on whites” and a basis for the “New World Order”

            Since it has not been in the wide press for years, the only way Bristol would be hearing about it now is from white supremacist literature. The false claim that it did not get publicity comes directly from those sources.

            If Bristol did hear about that case somewhere else, she has had ample opportunity to say so. For example if someone tricked her and she meant no harm, she could come clean. The first step would be admitting what she now knows: That the case is not brand new as she tried to portray it but is four years old; That it received tons of publicity at the time; and that the child long ago received all of the justice that this world will allow.

            It is also not like that blog came in a vacuum. It came on the heels of her claims that planned parenthood actually “targets” “black babies” as well as some other over the top racially tinged blogs.

            Since several of us have complained about this trend to Patheos, Bristol has at least temporarily stopped posting these misleading race baiting blogs. Hopefully things will stay that way. Unfortunately she has not had the decency to go back and issue any corrections.

          • Darin Anderson

            So, you heard about the case from a WP (please stop pretending you don’t know what WP is or that the term is some invention of mine…it insults us both) source? If that’s the only place she could have found it, I assume you found it through the Nazis too. And by your logic it would at least make you a fellow traveler. I’m curious, what WP source did she find it from, or is her finding the info from that source just a guess on your part?

            As for Planned Parenthood (I’m going to call them PP in this case…try to keep up), I have no dog in the fight other than Margaret Sanger was pretty racist. Not the dog whistle racism (that term always gives me the giggles) that you like to make up, but the old timey firebreathing wanting to kill folks with dark skin as an ethnic cleansing sort of thing. I’m not sure it’s misleading or racist to say that a PP clinic is not the safest place for an unborn child no matter it’s race.

            You’re a complainer too? So surprising that you’d want to shut people up. What do your…and your many others that most are likely other versions of your identity…complaints to patheos sound like? There’s whining and hurt feelings, I’d wager. Someone you don’t like posts stuff you don’t like and you’re unable to change the channel. Your delicate sensibilities have been shat upon because you have some silly compulsion to dog this poor, not so bright young woman. I understand crocheting is a nice hobby.

          • Katepatate

            Ms. Erb is here with an ax to grind while she rides her broomstick all across the land calling out bloggers with whom she disagrees. She simply hates the Palins and wants to make sure everyone knows it.

          • Katepatate

            Oh, so you’re the blog police. If you don’t agree with something, you call it out. How wonderful of you. It must be wonderful to be as powerful as God. I am wondering just how decent you are.

          • Michelle Erb

            When someone spreads white supremacist materials on Facebook and then censors out any dissent, than yes I am going to follow them to their blog and call them out. Sorry you cannot respect that.

            I do not understand how so called Christians can see the same posts and not be bothered. So when you come here and gush over her I am going to question you about it. It is that simple

            You claim to have a problem with someone attaching mothers, yet you support Bristol who attacked Wendy Davis as a mother, and did so by spreading debunked lies. At least I stick to what Bristol chose to show on television. I also genuinely hope that she will read those criticisms and change for her son’s sake.

          • claudia

            I never said I liked Bristol Palin “so much” I just stated that I felt it was unfair for you to judge her as if you are a perfect person. I like Bristol Palin because she is a young mother who is doing what it takes to raise her child alone. Do I agree with everything she says? No, of course not but that doesn’t mean I am going to stalk her blog and put her down as a mother because I don’t have a life. I believe she has a right to express her opinions as you do, but when people stand behind ‘free speech’ to say horrible and personal remarks about a person they don’t even know, they are the ones who are spewing hate. You, Michelle Erb, need to get a life and stop judging people you don’t even know. If you have an opinion, join a Palin hate group and spew your “hate speech” there as it will be well received.

          • Michelle Erb

            In this case the person I was judging was the poster who gratuitously posted that Bristol is decent and talented. For all any of us know she may well be both of those things. However, that is not the face that she has chosen to show the public.

            Were it not for the fans who embrace the Palins they would not be able to spread their hate and divisiveness. They would be relegated to shouting on street corners.

            So my question is serious. Why do you like Bristol so much that you overlook her horrid behavior? Is it just because she purports to be christian? Perhaps because she hates and fears the same type of people that you do?

            Do you really want to perpetuate the current reality show based culture where people, are rewarded merely for being famous in the first place? Or would you like to see this country become something better?

          • Katepatate

            How do the Palins spread hate and divisiveness? Seems you are the only one here arguing about everything nice said about the Palins. You are a Palin hater, plain and simple. Go get a life.

          • Katepatate

            You hate her, but you can’t keep your eyes off her. Makes me wonder about you.

      • Thor

        Whats ur talent?? Nagging?

      • Katepatate

        What is yours? Evidently coming on a Palin site to cause commotion.

    • Michelle Erb

      After reading Bristol’s attacks on Wendy Davis and the first family, not to
      mention her race baiting blogs, I have to wonder what your definition of
      “decent” is.

      Could it be claims to be Christian?

      Hope Candice wins.

      • Michelle Erb

        I do not recall that working out too well for Pamela Anderson. Whereas, rumor had it that Bristol lasted far longer than her dancing alone would merit.
        Are you suggesting prior winners were trashy? Donny Osmond? Kristi Yamaguchi?

        • Hgyu

          Jennifer Grey?

          • Katepatate

            While I like Jennifer Grey, she should have never been on the show because she is a professional dancer and it’s suppose to be about learning to dance.

          • Hgyu

            Well, she’s not actually a professional dancer. She’s an actress with some dance training and a lot of natural talent and athleticism. The celebrities with that and a competitive drive, typically actors and athletes, will do better than someone like Bristol, Kate Gosling, Bill Nye, etc who do not.

        • Katepatate

          You got a problem with Bristol Palin, don’t you. In fact, I bet you are a Palin hater. Right?

    Proud of women who stand up for what they believe in. It makes me angry that someone is slammed for wanting to dress modestly but we think a woman who flashes her breasts/abort a living child has every right as it is her body.

    • Michelle Erb

      Are you suggesting modesty laws?

      • Pam Mikesell Giles

        Absolutely not… I was trying to make the point to open minded people that everyone should be able to do what they want. But we seem to want to slam Christianity and modesty and accept the opposite more easily.

        • Michelle Erb

          I have no idea what Ballas said but I am not aware of women generally being under attack for dressing modestly. The only negative comments I heard about Bristol’s costumes concerned a gorilla suit.

          There is a difference between society forcing someone to dress a certain way and someone feeling insulted because they are accused of being unfashionable.

          I worry far more about women being forced to wear birkhas than women being told they are not fashionable enough if they dress modestly. Breastfeeding mothers still have a really hard time. Kudos to the Pope for speaking up for them.

          We should all worry more about kids being exposed to gratuitous violence and less about them knowing what boobies are for.

          While overly revealing clothes are tacky, we should not overlook the damage caused by “slut shaming.” Even Sarah Palin seems to draw comments accusing her of dressing too sexy, not the opposite.

          .

          • Pam Mikesell Giles

            Wow…please reread my last response…I breastfed in public…totally different than how Miley or Gaga present our beautiful bodies, not that it matters to anyone but me and my body. Seems you are hell bent on an argument. I just believe people applaud that while condemning women who stand for modesty. You condemning berkas…That is a choice I will not judge. I judge no one but myself … but I am willing to state an observation IN MY OPINION. Have a good evening.

          • Michelle Erb

            I do not condemn women who choose to wear burkas but rather societies that require it. See the difference?

            My point is that you say people in general slam modesty and Christianity. . All I ever see is slut shaming.

            Just read the comments here about how the “trashy” dancers “win big” on dancing with the stars. I looked at the winner’s list and they hardly sound slutty. Do you recall what Elizabeth Hasselback said about Erin Andrews when she was on the show? I have also heard lots of attacks on how Miley and Gaga dress, but the only mention I have heard about Christians being attacked for modesty, has been from the so-called Christians themselves.

            Is anyone here actually claiming that Bristol would have gone farther in the competition if she had worn more revealing clothes? Seems like her proclaimed Christianity was what actually kept her around so long.

          • Katepatate

            You got a problem with Christians, lady?

          • Michelle Erb

            Only with the ones who constantly play the “victim card.” I just love how the premise of this blog is supposed to be that the poor Christians get attacked for being modest, which I never see happen. Yet even here you guys are
            the ones attacking other women for how they dress, and in your case, even how they breastfeed..

            You guys even seem to be claiming that Bristol and Candace were at a disadvantage on dancing with the stars based on how they dress, when, at least when it came to Bristol, it actually seemed to be an advantage. You do not actually think her dancing kept her on so long? And here she is again, raising a non-issue to draw attention to herself.

          • Katepatate

            You know, I breast fed all three of my children and I at no time flashed my breasts like some women do today. Be a little modest, ladies. Most of us don’t think it’s adorable to see your baby suckling at your breast. It should be a private time between you and your baby.

      • Katepatate

        Are you suggesting you like exposing yourself?

  • mercedes

    Seems “trashy” usually wins and wins big. We need to rethink our morality. Again, maybe “dancing with the stars” is not the show to be on…
    Love the palins. Love modesty.

    • Hgyu

      Was writhing around on the floor under a shirtless Ballas modest or trashy?

    • Michelle Erb

      I looked at the winner’s list and am curious who you are talking about when you say “trashy” wins big? You do not seriously think that Bristol would have lasted even longer had she worn more revealing outfits?

    • Katepatate

      It’s about time some real women were showing others how to be beautiful and modest at the same time. What do you really think of women like Lindsey Lohan and Miley Cyrus who show it all? It’s no longer shocking. It’s just creepily slutty.

    • VL123

      Maybe real women need to be on to show the trashy ones what class is. Ever think of that? Or is that just a knee jerk reaction?

  • Jennifer Breen

    They nocked her for being to contemporary…..the dance can be contemporary and not have to be raunchy!!!! She has my vote all the way. You can have romance and not be too touchy feely and have a shirt on. She is a good Christian and I am glad she is standing by her faith. She is acting as she is not of this world and that is what us Christians are suppose to do!!

  • VL123

    You 2 should be proud…that means you aren’t conforming to secular standards! 😉

  • MikeTX62

    Just remember, Bristol, that if they’re expending that much energy to try to trash you, you must be doing something right!!!!

    • Michelle Erb

      Except this whole blog is based on a single comment that one person, Mark Ballas, made. And he was actually responding to Candace telling him what HE should wear, when he said she was “worse than Bristol.” He wasn’t commenting directly on either of the women’s costumes. It is Bristol and her fans that keep raising the issue over and over again. We get it you are “Christian.” Sorry that one douche seems to have a problem with it.

      Meanwhile self-professed Christians commenting on this page have been attacking other dancers on the show for being trashy, and whining that they had an advantage. Which does not make a lot of sense when you look at the actual winner’s list and see people like Donny Osmond. Kristi Yamaguchi and Jennifer Grey. Do you not even realize that you guys are the target audience for that super boring show?

      • MikeTX62

        I didn’t attack ANYONE “for being trashy.” I wasn’t even responding to the original comment. I simply responded to the people who were trashing Bristol by assuring her that her fans understand and are not swayed by the hateful comments made by those who were directing hateful comments at her,

        • Michelle Erb

          I did not say that YOU did. Since your comment is at the top of the page and not in response to anyone else I assumed you were commenting on the actual subject – Bristol’s delusion that she and Candace are generally under attack for wearing somewhat modest costumes

          • MikeTX62

            Bristol’s comments are not “a delusion,” but a response to the vitriol and hate speech she’s had to endure over the last several years from many on the left (not necessarily including you) on everything from her dress to her looks to her child-rearing abilities simply because of her mother’s political views.

          • Michelle Erb

            The only reason anyone knows anything about her parenting is because of what she chose to expose in multiple reality shows. That is fair game, and frankly she needs criticism in that area for the child’s sake.

            Commenting on her looks is rude and uncalled for, and something women in the spotlight unfortunately deal with on both sides of the aisle. We all need to speak out about that.

            But this particular blog is full of people whining that Christians are somehow being discriminated against on dancing with the stars and that people other than Mark Ballas have a problem with modest costumes. The idea that Bristol is still being attacked for modest costumes (if she ever was) is delusional.

          • MikeTX62

            Bristol may or may not still be receiving attacks regarding her dress. Whether she is or isn’t is totally irrelevant. YOUR delusion is that Bristol is complaining about the criticism she (Bristol) is (or was) receiving, when the fact is that Bristol was defending Candace from the criticism SHE (Candace) is receiving because she (Bristol) can relate to it and understands first-hand what Candace is having to deal with.

            PS –By the way, Bristol was being criticized from the left on her parenting long before she did that reality show. In fact, like her appearances on DWTS, one of her stated reasons for doing the reality show was that she was already being critiqued so she might as well do it.

          • Jog

            That’s such a lame reason Mike. She did it for the easy money. Period. And nobody was attacking her for her parenting before the reality shows. They wouldn’t have known anything about it. The only reason Bristol remained in the public eye after the RNC is because she chose to be, selling her and her son’s stories and photos to tabloid mags and TV.

          • MikeTX62

            @disqus_QJVajdnOUp:disqus – Sorry, wrong again!! Bristol had been receiving criticism for being “fat” and was being called “whore” and “pig” and “unfit mother” among other things long before the reality show idea was even proposed to her. Many of those comments came while she was competing the first time on Dancing With the Stars when various leftists opined about how she was neglecting her son by being on the show and how that was “just another indication of how selfish and unfit” she was. As for your assertion that libs wouldn’t have been criticizing Bristol’s parenting beforehand because “they wouldn’t have known anything about it,” I will simply point out to you that not knowing what they’re talking about has never stopped liberal haters from spewing their venom before and it certainly hasn’t in the case of Bristol Palin (or her mother, for that matter.).

          • Jog

            They weren’t criticizing her parenting. They might have been pointing out that she certainly wasnt a role model fir teen parenthoid, as the easy celebrity money and childcare, relative posh life that came with it wasn’t typical of what teen moms usually face.as fir being fat, she inexplicable got fatter as the weeks went on with DWTS, despite claims she was working so hard. Face it, she was after easy money of reality shows and just tried to play the victim as usual.

          • MikeTX62

            OOPS! WRONG AGAIN!!! Calling someone “neglectful” and “an unfit mother” IS Most Definitely criticizing one’s parenting. As for her being a good role model, taking several jobs in order to raise money to support your child is a pretty good example of good parenting in my book. As for your “play the victim” card, I have never heard Bristol (or any of the Palins) do any such thing. They do, however, acknowledge and respond to many of these criticisms. That hardly qualifies as “playing the victim.”

          • Jog

            Hahahahahaha!!!! I don’t know what’s funnier. You believing Brisyol worked several jobs ( unless you mean having someone write a book fir her, go on reality TV and DWTS and selling photos and life stories to tabloids) to support Tripp or not realizing how often Sarah and Bristol play the victim. In fact Bristol’s book open with just that. And she has been called out several times for it in this blog of ” hers”. And oh hey, who called her unfit and neglectful on DWTS?

          • Michelle Erb

            My understanding is that in her book Bristol actually claims that Levi raped her. If that is not playing the victim…

            But as long as she made a lot of money, who cares how it affects her kid.

            I would not exactly say Bristol “supports” Trip. When you exploit your own kid in a reality show, and pursue celebrity solely on the ground that you have a kid, I think your kid is supporting you.

            Keep in mind that if Bristol did not feature Tripp on reality shows and Face book, no one would even know what he looks like. The paparazzi is not exactly clamoring after them, much to Bristol’s dismay. I certainly do not know what Sarah’s other grandchild looks like. I do not even know what Track looks like.

            This particular criticism has zero to do with politics. I will always speak out against the exploitation of children and the way so called reality shows are dumbing down our country. Most of Bristol’s fans probably would not like it either were her last name not Palin and were she not pretending to be “one of them.”

          • Michelle Erb

            You have got to be kidding right? They don’t play the victim? Their specialty is attacking others by falsely claiming that they themselves are under attack. Remember when Obama used the colloquialism “lipstick on a pig” and Sarah worked her followers into a frenzy claiming it was about her? That was one of the first times. It keeps happening though. Including this blog where Bristol pretends she is being attacked for being too modest. Please show me where anyone has ever complained that Bristol is too pious?

            Let me explain something to you. There are people called “trolls.” Every single person in the spotlight or even on the internet will get sexist and racist comments from these people. They are neither conservatives or liberals. They are trolls. People of actual stature ignore them. They do not keep complaining about it for years, in order to try to insert themselves back into the spotlight.

          • Michelle Erb

            When liberals hear trolls calling Bristol a “whore,” most will speak out against it. When Rush Limbaugh relentlessly attacks women calling them “sluts,” Sarah Palin poses for photo-ops hugging him.

            The Palins are far from saints, Bristol has been spreading racist propaganda and attacking other mothers (Wendy Davis).

            There is nothing too petty for Sarah to lie about. She actually claimed that the white house chef quit because of Michelle Obama’s food demands. The truth was that he was so inspired by her that he left to expand her mission. If Sarah just stuck to stupid petty stuff like that it would just be funny.. But many of her lies are dangerous.

            Most recently, she spread the lie that Eric Holder is going to require gun owners to wear identification bracelets. The truth is that he mentioned possible technical
            advantages in gun safety such as improving existing technology that would make it so guns could only be fired by their owners. No one would be required to have such a weapon and no one’s current guns would be confiscated.

            I know I would love to know that neither I nor a child could be killed with my own gun.. Every single day there is another article about a child firing off his parent’s gun, or some teenagers breaking into a home and stealing guns.. This would be a great option for those households. But congratulations Sarah on riling up the extremists yet again.

          • Michelle Erb

            What criticism is Candace receiving? The only thing I heard was Mark Ballas complaining that she was telling him what he should wear. Sorry but this whole blog is just Bristol trying to draw attention to herself again.

  • Kristy Patullo

    This video is no longer available. But I think it was Mark who said that, right?
    He’s blessed to have had both you and Candace as partners, Bristol. He could use
    a bit more modesty in his life.

  • Michelle Erb

    I have to apologize. I kept saying that no one is actually attacking Candace for her costumes. I was wrong. Since she wore the Mermaid costume she has been under attack by “Christians” for not being modest enough. My bad.

  • Honestly, these are costumes-CHristian churches are seriously going be left in the dust-they hate everyone-where is the love and compassion that was supposedly shown by Christ? Christians are the loudest of the haters and the bullies around the world-from outwardly hating anyone who makes their own choice, who stands strong, who is different, LGBT-where is the acceptance, compassion and love that Christ stood for or what I thought he was. The followers of Christ, have ruined my belief in Christ. People are not going to run to the Christians ever for any kind of sanctuary and unfortunately the followers have done that. it is Sad, because Christ is so opposite of every Christian I have met. AND WHY in 2014, as we fight still for anti bullying, crisis intervention for the youth of america, so hard to embrace LGBT for legal rights to LOVE who you choose.. WHY ON EARTH IS BRISTOL PALIN CONSTANTLY H8ED?? SHE IS A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG WOMAN, SINGLE MOM, SURVIVOR AND DOING A HELL OF A JOB-WITH CLASS AND DIGNITY AND SO DESERVES RESPECT! COME ON PEOPLE?!!

    • Michelle Erb

      Until the last two sentences, I thought you were talking about Bristol Palin.
