Margaret Cho blogged about Bristol Palin and Dancing With the Stars, saying the teen mom was forced into doing the show by her mother as payback for thwarting the 2008 election.

Cho wrote:

"Why did Bristol do Dancing With the Stars? I heard from someone who really should know (really should seriously know the dirt really really) that the only reason Bristol was on the show was because Sarah Palin forced her to do it. Sarah supposedly blames Bristol harshly and openly (in the circles that I heard it from) for not winning the election, and so she told Bristol she 'owed' it to her to do DWTS so that 'America would fall in love with her again' and make it possible for Sarah Palin to run in 2012 with America behind her all the way. Instead of being supposedly 'handicapped' by the presence of her teen mom daughter, now Bristol is going to be an 'asset' -- a celebrity beloved for her dancing. I am sure the show wasn't in on this (but who knows anything really).

Now I am scared I am going to wake up with a decapitated moose head in my bed."

Bristol Palin finished third in the dance competition; Cho was eliminated in week three.
