On November 23, Bristol Palin, daughter of former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, finished third in the reality TV show ' Dancing With the Stars'. 'Dirty Dancing' star Jennifer Grey won the competition, but Palin stole the headlines as she continued to move on week to week despite lesser scores by the judges. Critics claimed supporters of Palin's mother were clogging phone lines and casting votes for her. Those allegations were never proven. Disney Channel's Kyle Massey finished second.
