Drew Lachey, Helio Castroneves talk Palin on 'Kimmel'

The Indy race car driver never scored lower

Two excellent dancers were voted off “Dancing with the Stars” last night - Drew Lachey and Helio Castroneves (not to mention their partners Anna Trebunskaya and Chelsie Hightower) leading to the inevitable and even by now exceedingly tiresome question: Why is Bristol Palin still in the hunt? She got 22 points Monday, three or so below their scores.

(Why? How about because this is exactly how “DWTS” wants this narrative to play out .?.?. But that's another topic.)

Lachey and Castroneves, former champs, by the way, and partners, addressed the Palin question last night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”  Kimmel demanded the truth, and got some variation of that. Lachey was diplomatic: People like an underdog. Trebunskaya,  less so.

Worth watching, fans.
