Sally Quinn Squeezes Religion Into Op-Ed About Bristol Palin's Dancing
My secret fantasy is to be on "Dancing" but of course I would never dare. I can see Len saying in a caustic British accent, "That was absolutely the worst Paso Doble I have ever seen in my 11 seasons on this show!" And Bruno, standing up, tearing at his hair, "What are you thinking?! Where is the passion? The sexuality? The character? That was PATHETIC!" And Carrie Ann, regretfully: "Sally, you're a good journalist. Why do you want to put yourself through this?"
My husband and I are "DWTS" fanatics. We plan our social life around it, often regretting invitations that fall on the night of the show. Only in emergencies would we try to TiVo. Not only that, but I vote. Under the show's rules, you're allowed to vote five times on one line. I have six lines at home and my cell, so I vote as many times as I can for my favorite.
Yes, a "good journalist." This Washington Post "On Faith" feature is really hilarious. Jon Meacham just wants to compare political figures to biblical figures, whereas Sally Quinn just wants to continue writing her dumb op-eds about her dumb personal life. But it's supposed to be about religion! So:
I never remember all Ten Commandments off the top of my head, but there should be one that says, "Thou shalt not cheat while voting on 'Dancing with the Stars.'" Polls have shown that the majority of tea party members are conservative Christians. Are these Christians who are voting 300 times and not using valid email addresses? Doesn't it offend their sense of fairness, if not ethics and morals?
