As most are aware, the Internet was abuzz with talk that Governor Palin was booed while in the Dancing with the Stars studio to cheer on her daughter, Bristol. Andrew Sullivan got caught up in Boo-Gate and then stated:
If DWTS explains what the booing was about and it had nothing to do with Sarah Palin's emergence, we will, as always, correct the record.When ABC squashed the booing rumors, Sullivan wrote:
ABC has now corrected the record. The booing was not about Sarah Palin but a reaction to an announcement of scores. The Dish apologizes for jumping to conclusions.It blows my mind that people are so threatened by Governor Palin that they get all giddy at the mere thought that she would be treated poorly by an audience of people. The stories out there by people who were praying fervently that they were on to something is unbelievable. Some still refuse to accept ABC's word on this. Sorry, folks, but audiences still stand in line to hear the Governor speak and to applaud the impact she's having on the upcoming mid-term elections and the nation overall.
Now, on to the next "gate." I'm sure it's coming soon. I'll be here to debunk that one, too.
