Political Circus: O'Donnell asked to dance

Ed Hornick

Washington (CNN) - Politics is serious business - but not all the time.

They want me! They really want me!

Christine O'Donnell, the headline-grabbing former Republican U.S. Senate candidate, recently announced on her Facebook page that the producers of ABC's hit show "Dancing with the Stars" asked her to be a contestant on the upcoming season.

Calling it a "Facebook Exclusive," the Tea Party favorite wrote: "I just got the Official 'Ask' from Dancing With The Stars!! Although I am utterly flattered, my initial thought was to decline, as 2 year old nephew has more rhythm than me, and my two left feet!!"

The post had 231 "like" responses and 375 comments as of Wednesday morning.

"Do it. You will drive the liberal community insane," commented Edward Rush. Julie Dilworth Brewington wrote, "Would you really cheapen yourself enough to become a character of yourself?"

    And I was just getting to where I LIKED that show. Well, they had Bristol Palin so I guess O'Donnell fits in with that – it might be good for a few laughs. As long as people vote for her on her dancing and not on her viewpoints it might be a good show for at least a few weeks....
