1. That is really sad.

She is a multi-millionaire. Sometimes its really about the money.

3. I saw it too

Now I'm glad she isn't back on DWTS, too. It's ruined enough with Palin.

I saw the commercial last night and couldn't believe the gall. He single-handedly did it. Without any help from the Government?? Really?? You have to be shitting me!!

13. I can't believe that DWTS is bringing back Palin. Just another

show to not watch. Ever since I got rid of my DVR I am a lot more picky about what I watch.

5. Glad to hear that it was not Apollo Ono

Kristi is from a wealthy family, isn't she? Orange County?

Somehow I think she is from a Republican family.

EDIT --- I just realized I left the word "NOT" out of my post. I like Apollo and am glad to hear that it was not him who spoke for Romney.

12. I was also glad to see that it wasn't Apollo Ono.

As to Kristi, she joins my list of those to be ignored.

6. Never understood these sports stars

and movie idols telling me how to vote. Would Kristi listen to me if I told her how to skate?

10. Hopefully someone lets her know the real facts.

And if she doesn't care they tell her that she is an imbecile.

17. Last night I saw a Kohl's commercial with her in it.



It appears to be a new association as her fan club just noted it

20. Didn't the USOC Smack Down Both Campaigns

For using Mittens' Olympic experience (for better or worse) during the actual games? I guess that doesn't apply to SuperPACs.
