Sarah Palin lobbied for fellow Mama Grizzly Christine O’Donnell to go on Dancing With the Stars last year, and now it looks like it just might happen. The former Tea Party candidate told her Facebook fans Monday that she was invited onto the reality show, the New York Daily News reports. “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!!” she wrote.

To date, some 375 comments have followed, with one person advising O’Donnell not to do it “because of what the leftists in the entertainment industry will try to do,” while another worried she would be cheapening herself. She later wrote, "The facebook comments about Dancing w The Stars list great pros and cons. Thank you for your input. Still undecided. Book comes first."
