Christian Science Monitor: Are Tea Party votes keeping Bristol Palin on Dancing with the Stars?

Release Date: November 10, 2010

Elayne Rapping, professor emeritus of American studies, is quoted in an article in the Christian Science Monitor about Bristol Palin's performances on Dancing with the Stars and the role her mother's political supporters might be playing in keeping the teen on the show. Tea Party activists on Twitter "are part of a large community that has power, and when the group of people with this power decide to put it in the service of Bristol Palin, it's kind of mind-boggling," she said.
