PREACH IT! Introducing the Bristol Palin's Gams Fan Club!

September 21, 2010 |  2:19 pm

Bristol-palin-dwts If you saw "Dancing with the Stars" on Monday night, you caught some extraordinary surprises, not the least of which involved Bristol Palin. We're not talking about Palin’s mom, who apparently bailed on her daughter at the last minute after sending the "DWTS" studio into a DefCon-1-style security beef-up.

We are, however, talking about the younger Palin's getaway sticks.

Palin certainly is no dancing superstar, but she more or less held her own, footwork-wise. (Her from-the-waist-up shimmy, for the record, was a different story. Some things, as they say, can never be unseen.)

We're not alone in being caught unawares by Bristol's passable legwork.

The Washington Post declared her to be "not the worst dancer." And, while Bristol was certainly no Jennifer Grey, Parade pointed out that Palin’s score of 18 out of 30 puts her in the "mid-level."

Not everyone was pleasantly surprised; Vanity Fair has advised Bristol to take some inspiration from ...

... her mom's career and "quit." But as long as The Situation and David Hasselhoff are delivering truly mediocre routines, is that really fair?

More importantly, is it possible to be a fan solely of Bristol Palin's gams?
