Skip to comments.Sarah Palin Wants Christine O'Donnell On Next 'Dancing With the Stars'
Posted on 11/23/2010 2:07:50 PM PST by dselig
Sarah Palin was not only playing the role of proud mama grizzly last night when she sat in the front row cheering on daughter Bristol Palin in the finale of 'Dancing With The Stars' -- she was also playing casting director, lobbying the show's producers to consider signing up her Tea Party pal Christine O'Donnell for next season.
"Sarah is a genius at marketing herself and her message," an insider tells me. "She doesn't care about all the old rules about how political people are meant to behave and act. Sarah believes the best way is to go directly to the people -- use Twitter, Facebook, 'Dancing With the Stars' and 'Entertainment Tonight' to get potential voters excited and leave 'Meet The Press' and those boring Sunday morning shows to the old-school politicians."
And with the success of her own reality show, 'Sarah Palin's Alaska,' and Bristol stunning everyone with the fact that she is still in the 'Dancing' competition, Sarah might be onto something. Plus, who else are the 'Dancing' producers going to get after Bristol?
"Christine is not a bad idea at all," one ABC executive tells me. "After Kate Gosselin and Cloris Leachman, O'Donnell would fit right in. She certainly would be so controversial that the amount of press attention and buzz the show would get would be huge. Plus, you know they would make her dance in a witch's hat with a broomstick."
Sarah, if this political thing doesn't work out for you, you should think about a career in casting. Seriously.

Sarah is the master at getting liberal heads to explode.
Sarah, I like you a lot.
You’re the best we’ve got so far.
But enough of the trashy TV shows, ok?
Im with you. and I love Sarah, but lets start whooping Obamas but NOT hollywoods.
Don’t surrender any popular media to the enemy.
Dancing with the Stars may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it is one show that families feel OK with watching together. Sarah has a show that is family-friendly, and it is both fun to watch, educational, and is beautifully photographed. A great show to watch with family.
I think she has a good point.
Just as I have speculated, the Producers have kept Bristol on because of the viewers and voters (MONEY) it brings.
Don’t get me wrong, I am glad to see her winning.
Problem for the producers is, if they can’t come up with someone as controversial as Bristol, they will lose their viewers (MONEY). What a quandry....!
Yep, no more politicians, their kids...no more..just let it go, IMHO..Bristol does not deserve to deal with death threats. It is NOT worth it
How about they rename the show to DWTS-TAKE DOWN, and have half of the contestants CONSERVATIVES and half LIBERALS?
Or... just bring back THE GONG SHOW.
SP could never win the nomination by the old rubber chicken dinner with Iowa party hacks process. So she is fighting a battle on her own terms and with her own rules. I don’t know if it will work in the end, but it’s fun to watch.
If Palin is actually pushing this, that doesn't speak well of her judgment.
O'Donnell is and was an embarrassment, she wasn't hand picked by Bill Mahr to be on HIS show because she was an intelligent and reasonable spokesman, but because she would say dumb and/or outrageous things that they could then all laugh at.
I respecfully disagree, I don’t think it is fun to watch
What you said!
Maybe she's not such a PR genius after all.
So we should quit and let the thugs win?
She is surely gorgeous. And I’m an old grandma.
Rosie O’Donnell and Michael Moore. And use only Cuban paramedics.
You blame Sarah for Bristol getting death threats ?
LOL. Maybe you’re a troll. You certainly suffer from PDS, because you ought to know that TLC replays the show several times during the week in the same time slot M-F so viewers now know that they don’t have to watch it on Sunday night exclusively.
Let Bristol be
Viewership dropping significantly after the first episode of any new show is a very common occurrence.
Aren’t you getting a little old to talk like a Valley Girl?
Actually some great people have won the show....not a thug among them...lol.
Last week had some football games on too and she managed 5 mil. I think that 3 million is about right. The extra two million last week was for curiosity sake.
Especially Sunday Night football — a great game this last time.
Yes, they have,,no thugs that I have noticed..Hehehe!
Oh, my gosh. Low blow. ‘Duh’ is an accepted part of the language. It says so much.
Instead of saying, ‘that statement is so ridiculous it makes me want to stick a fork in my neck, or maybe your neck, you can just say ‘duh.’
Pretty much says it all.
Tokyo Rove sighting!
She hasn't done any yet, so you can put the "concern" away.
I'll second that emotion.
Fer a newb, you sure have a way with words! ;^)
+1! Full Agreement - O'Donnell is awful, her judgment terrible (I'm not a witch? Seriously?). She is a lifetime live off the campaign / political system person. She will now do all she can to live off being a political loser. And the MSM will push and tout O'Donnell all they can, as they know she comes off awful for the "conservative/GOP" movement.
Now that you asked, No, I’m not, stupida!
Thanks very much, altura!
Whack the troll.
People are much more tired of that compulsive liar, and God-awful, incompetent Governor, Mitt Romney.
Where in this story is Sarah quoted as saying this?
So, are you two willing to run for office? Or are you just going to wait to snipe at next courageous person willing to put themselves out there on the front line?
The front lines? More like walking the street, selling what she got, as a publicity wh*re.
OH, you KIDS!! Sticking forks in your necks, speaking in cartoon language... sheesh.
Elsewhere on forum, you might find matters of substance. FReepers used to be able to have informed discussions. FReepers used to have the good of the country at heart.
But the Palinistas are as thin-skinned as she is!! Even though the m.o. is Roller Derby-style belligerence, it is triggered by an inability to care about what matters!!
I’ve been whacking trolls so hard my arm is sore, but they just keep popping up for more.
Here comes a ZOT...
Currently I’m to busy defending our Nation. With that said, that doesn’t mean every two bit immature idiot that spouts conservative principles deserves our support over and over. She is a 2, 3, 4 time loser now? The best she can come up with is “I’m not a witch”. The women comes off, awful. She is incredibly immature and does a complete disservice to the conservative / GOP movement. The MSM will use her now for all they can...and she will go along with the MSM now all she can for the money. That is all she is about.
IBTZ? For what? Disagreeing?
As a Palin supporter, I am concerned with the thin skinned Palin supporters. Sarah Palin is tough as nails. Those who want to support her should follow suit. She deserves it.
To have someone banned for disagreeing is a tool of the left. Conservatives of all differing opinions should be above that sort of tactic.
the guy insulted free republic and palin supporters
