Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough save America

Not only is it good news that Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough won Dancing with the Stars this week, it may have also saved Americans from having to defend themselves against rioting in the streets.  Public disdain for Bristol Palin‘s inexplicable advancement in the competition, despite her sheer lack of skill, was reaching fever pitch in the run-up to the final on Tuesday.

What made it worse was that Bristol said she hoped she would win, not because she thought she was the best dancer, but because she wanted to give a big middle finger to all the haters.  Turns out the middle finger got given back to her, as she got knocked down to third place.  Jennifer Grey was dancing with a ruptured spinal disc, and she still managed to do better than Bristol Palin.
