Tea Party mascot and walking pro-choice ad Bristol Palin can't seem to catch a break.
Then there were those too-good-to-be-true rumors that she was dating "Dancing With the Stars" cohort the Situation, of "Jersey Shore" fame -- for what would have been an apocalyptic fusion of Ameridouche extremes from sea to shining sea.
Now, the Daily Beast is picking on mini-Palin for the only thing she's ever been good at, calling her success on "DWTS" a conspiracy by the publicity-hungry 'Palin for 2012' camp.
Writes the Beast:
"Week after week, Bristol has bested celebrities who have gotten higher marks than her, including Rick Fox and Audrina Patridge, landing her--and her supportive partner, Mark Ballas--among the top five contestants."
So how does Bristol win the popular vote with two left feet?
It's called "Operation Bristol" -- vetted by conservative author Tammy Bruce, another hot brunette activist with a girl crush on Governor Palin and 14,000 followers on Twitter. See if you can decipher her code:
