Remember how Michele Bachmann said the media wants to start a catfight between her and Sarah Palin that involves mud wrestling? Well, who needs the media when we have Bristol Palin? In an interview with PopEater, Bristol decided to get the match under way. How did she attack Bachmann? Did she criticize her economic policies? Her views on social issues? No. Worse. She accused Bachmann of ripping off her mom's style. "I think she dresses a lot like my mom," Bristol said.

Oh boy. Tonight's the night we get Paula Abdul as a guest judge. She always annoyed me on American Idol - will I find her less tiresome here? I don't doubt her credibility, she's arguably more a dancer than a singer. During the staircase introductions: Val gets introduced by his full first name of "Valentin. " I wonder if he asked for that or if Tom's having fun. Brooke tells us lifts will be allowed tonight - get ready to meet the harsh reality that is gravity during rehearsals.

Here we go -- second week with these All-Stars. I hate Brooke's dress from mid-thigh down. It's like a cute dress got attacked by an unraveled loofah. Tom jokes that Pamela went home and left behind a "trail of body glitter. " Melissa Rycroft &  Tony Dovolani -- Jive In rehearsal, Melissa says that everyone is dancing now at the level they dance in finals during a regular season. Melissa and Tony didn't get to perform the jive during her regular season because of a rib injury -- the judges had to judge based on rehearsal footage.

The most interesting aspect of Bristol Palin's new reality show on Lifetime is how much padding the producers had to do to fill the time between an hour's worth of commercials Tuesday night. The padding was so bad that they showed the one scene with any energy and conflict four times during the hour. And that's a scene that anyone who still has any interest in this sorry Alaskan clan has already seen for months on YouTube. You know, it's the one in which Bristol Palin and two of her friends (and a posse of reality TV producers and technicians)

I am too tired to go crazy about this. And there really are so many hugely more important things going on the world practically every day. But ... I cannot let the addition of HLN host Nancy Grace to the lineup of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" pass without comment. It is such an exquisite example of how calculating and exploitative prime-time network TV can be. Here is what I find debased about the selection of Grace: She probably got the job and the $500,000 that goes with it because she decided on her own that Casey Anthony was guilty and then, ignoring any sense of respect for the judicial system or fair play, pounded away on Anthony's alleged guilt day and night.

In my review Tuesday night of Bristol Palin's new reality show on the Lifetime channel, I said that I had come to believe that the Palins were history. The mass audience no longer cared about Sarah, Bristol, Willow, Todd or any of the other characters in this screwy Alaska clan. Here's some of what I wrote about "Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp": But you know what? I am sitting here at 1 a.m. typing this post, and even though it's been a very long day, my blood pressure is fine.

After reading Jean Marbella's verbal assault on Bristol Palin, Sarah Palin's daughter, in her recent column ("Tea partiers: Hands off 'Dancing with the Stars'!" Nov. 23) it occurred to me that Ms. Marbella may suffer from a pathological obsession that drives her to denigrate Mrs. Palin and members of her family. Or perhaps she's jealous, envious of the 20-year old celebrity. Or, it may be that she's just an out-of-control Obamacrat who has a visceral hatred of conservatives and/or republicans and/or members of the tea party.

News that the unmarried teenage daughter of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the Republican vice presidential candidate, is five months pregnant has sparked a media storm to match Hurricane Gustav's disruption of the GOP convention this week. Presidential hopeful Sen. John McCain insists the pregnancy of 17-year-old Bristol Palin is a private family matter. But it raises legitimate questions about Governor Palin's forceful support for abstinence-only sex education policies, as well as the vetting process that led Mr. McCain to choose a running mate with one of the slimmest resumes for high office in recent memory.

"Game Change," HBO's made-for-TV movie about the 2008 presidential election, started production in Baltimore on Wednesday with a flurry of casting news and the release of the first image of star Julianne Moore as former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. Based on the best-selling nonfiction account of the election, HBO's film focuses on the campaign of Republican candidate Sen. John McCain from the time of his controversial pick of Palin as his running mate to the ticket's loss in the general election to Barack Obama.

Jean Marbella's column about "Dancing with the Stars" is right on ("Politics invades 'Dancing with the Stars'" Nov. 21). I watch DWTS for it's entertainment value, and I know that's all I'm going to get out of it. And yes, it's cheesy, and yes, they do occasionally find a diamond in the rough. And yes, I get upset when my favorite doesn't win. What is happening this season may be the demise of DWTS; I hear a lot of people saying this is the last year they will be watching.
