Bristol Palin to Cho: My Mother Didn't Force Me to Do Dancing
Bristol Palin has a message for Margaret Cho: We need to talk.
"You say you 'don't agree with the family's politics at all' but I say, if you understood that commonsense conservative values support the right of individuals like you, like all of us, to live our lives with less government interference and more independence, you would embrace us faster than k.d. lang at an Indigo Girls concert, " Palin wrote on Facebook to the openly bisexual Cho.
Palin used the post to rebut Cho's comments that her mother, Sarah Palin, forced her to do Dancing with the Stars.
Margaret Cho: Sarah Palin made Bristol do Dancing
"Let me be blunt: my mom did not 'force' me to go on DWTS. She did not ask me either. The show approached me. I thought about it. I made the decision," Palin wrote.
She added that "politics had nothing to do with it. Loving my parents had everything to do with it."
Fellow Dancing contestant Cho recently blogged: "Sarah supposedly blames Bristol harshly and openly (in the circles that I heard it from) for not winning the election, and so she told Bristol she 'owed' it to her to do DWTS so that 'America would fall in love with her again."

"It saddens me that people would think that my mom would 'blame' me for anything that occurred in the 2008 election — much less 'harshly' and 'openly,'" Palin wrote. "After first worrying for me in terms of being exposed to those who hate us for what we believe in, both my mom and my dad became my number one supporters."
She also had a suggestion for Cho the next time she has questions about the Palin family: "Call me ... Don't ever rely on 'sources' who claim to know me or my family. You will be taken every time."
