Political Circus: Bristol Palin forget to vote?

Washington (CNN) – Politics is serious business, but not all of the time. From the halls of Congress to the campaign trail, there's always something that gets a laugh. Here are some of the things you might have missed.

But mom, I was too busy dancing!

Bristol Palin, who's currently starring on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars," dropped a bombshell to "Inside Edition," saying she didn't send in her absentee ballot to Alaska. Mama Grizzly can't be too happy about that.

Next stop, the Olympics

Democrat Ed Perlmutter, fresh off his win in Colorado's 7th Congressional District, was so excited that he couldn't contain himself - or mock his opponent. According to the Denver Post, "playing off a TV ad his opponent ran during the campaign, Perlmutter wanted to prove he could do a real cartwheel." And a cartwheel, he did. Two of them.

    Who cares????? Why can't you put all this Palin stuff in your Entertainment section? Bristol is a teen mom on DWTS and her mom is a half term governor who has added ZERO policy-wise to the political debate and has her on reaklity show that is about to begin. I think Jon Avalon was going to explode the other night when you guys started talking about Palin as if her name was on a ballot. I was right there with him. STOP talking about this lady in political context. She's playing you all for fools so she can fill her wallet.

    Hopefully for Bristol's sake Joe Miller doesn't lose by 1 vote.

    Should this be under entertainment. Not only is the unwed dropout mother of the little "b" (if reporters are bastard like her mother said we need to call it like it is and, no, I don't care that he is a child even though it's not his fault that his inbred family might continue to spawn in the future) NOT a star she is also NOT a politician. Then again, neither is her mother.
    BTW – everyone who is part of dwts loses weight. This woman seems to be putting on more weight. What's up with that?

    Is Cnn turning into Fox?. I'm no fan of Sarah Palin, but I don't believe in taking the parents short comings out on a child.

    C'mon guys give the little lady a break. She is not a star so why is she on Dancing With The Stars but I don't care for show anyway. She's just following in Mom's footsteps trying to make a buck anyway she legally can. She is an unwed mother and any mpney made will keep her off the welfare rolls and independent, hopefully of her publicity seeking Mom and her "I'm Always In The Background" Dad.

    The country is getting ready to crap out now that Boo-Hoo Boehner and his Boys are back CNN.
    Nobody really gives a flying fig about this nobody.
    Show some class and give us a blessed break from the half-wit half-termer and her All-American Trailer Trash Family.

    Right on Marie MD! I was just about to type pretty much exactly what you posted. Honestly CNN, it was so nice to go a whole day without having to see a story about these inbred ignorants. Shouldn't the chubby daughter be home with her bastard child instead of exploiting herself on a cheesy reality show? Shouldn't the hate filled, divisive mother be at home taking care of her disabled grandchild while his father is off guarding generals in iraq?

    Wow, you folks are ridiculous on your Bristol bashing. Sarah sucks and we all know that but; why is her child being punished for things she did not do? The inbred comments, calling her child a bastard, it all goes to show just how childish some people are. I have met Bristol, she is a nice girl that made some mistakes (like all of us) that has to deal with America hating her because of what her mother did/does.

    Grow up
