Sarah Palin lobbies ABC's 'Dancing with the Stars' to get Christin O'Donnell on the show

Sarah Palin, has apparently, been occupying her self with a different kind of campaigning. She's been lobbying the producers of the hit ABC show "Dancing with the Stars" to get Tea Party-backed U.S. Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell on the Thursday night show as a contestant.

The entertainment website PopEater, said the former Alaska governor, turned reality TV show star, took on the role of casting director while she was cheering on her daughter, Bristol, at the show's season finale.

A source told the website "Sarah is a genius at marketing herself and her message...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."

Reportedly an executive with ABC has said that having Christine O'Donnell on the show could be a great idea. They said "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."

O'Donnell is clearly a fan of the show. Last Thursday she Twitted "I just voted for Bristol on DWTS! She's enduring a lot & should be proud. It's shameful the way she is being attacked. vote-800-868-3407."
