There's still some disagreement as to whether the crowd on last
night's Dancing With the Stars booed
former Alaska governor Sarah Palin (they may have been saying "boo urns").
Dancing contestant Jennifer Grey thought the jeers were directed at her
("Why is everyone booing?" she asked
Brooke Burke). An ABC representative tells The
Los Angeles Times the boos weren't for anyone and they weren't boos
at all, adding "They were just expressing their feelings about a
really, really good dance. It's not at all unusual."
To be fair,
around these parts we boo things that make us happy all the time (we're
doing it right now to a loaf of banana bread). But rewatching the clip,
it certainly seems like people are giving Palin the business. Then
again, it could just a way of honoring Grey's heroic service in "Red Dawn." Judge for yourself.
