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.

I have no doubt that this is exactly what Palin is doing.
But if so, she's saying that we don't need our candidates to engage in of those sober discussions about boring old policy, economics, and national security.
That's sure to build confidence among voters who are concerned about the serious problems our country faces.
Aw! It felt more like a wet tea bag. :):)
I love that show “Chuck.”
I think Lancaster is prettier;^)
Not a bad idea! Candidates in debates dance around the issues, so why not a contest to see which of them is the best dancer?
One thing I can guarantee you — and this does come from personal knowledge — Christine O’Donnell is not going to be dancing with the stars.
