Tea Party Favorite Invited to Join ‘Dancing With the Stars’

Tea Party favorite Christine O'Donnell says she's been invited to be a contestant on TV's "Dancing with the Stars." But the losing Senate candidate from Delaware isn't sure she should accept, saying she has two left feet and a book about politics to complete.

The conservative Republican, who lost to a Democrat amid controversy over past statements about youthful dabbling in witchcraft, is soliciting opinions on her Facebook page.

O'Donnell says her initial reaction was to say "no" to the show, but others are encouraging her to accept. O'Donnell writes she's flattered, but a 2-year-old nephew has more rhythm than she does.

A program representative said Tuesday it has no comment on casting speculation, adding a new cast will be announced next week.


Maybe she dances like Elaine.

I think it'd be fun, she has an engaging personality; I bet she is fun to be around.

I guess ABC didn't get enough controversy from Bristol Palin last season.

Controversy equals ratings. Ratings equal dollars.

I would think a network would put either saints or Satan on a show if they had sizable groups following them, pro or con. It gets those television sets turned on.
