Dancing With the Witch?! What Gives With "Dancing With the Stars" and the Right-Wingers? Can't Leftist 20 Percenters Dance Too?

First it was republican and former House Majority Leader Tom Delay (pictured immediately above), who's since been convicted of money laundering and will have to do his dancing in the ice house once his current appeal's exhausted. Next we had Sarah Palin's daughter, Bristol (also pictured above). Then it was republican astronaut Buzz Aldrin.

And now "Dancing With the Stars" has invited deranged right-winger Christine O'Donnell to participate on the show! (First link at bottom).

O’Donnell, the former Delaware GOP Senate candidate, is of course best known for admitting to "dabbling in witchcraft" and once having a "date with a witch on a satanic altar" that only involved "a little blood." (Second link at bottom). O'Donnell is reportedly currently mulling the offer from DWTS.

The linked CBS story posits the questions of whether O'Donnell on the show will dance to such old standards as "I Put a Spell on You" and "Witchcraft." But I have a few additional suggestions. How about the Eagles' "Witchy Woman"? What about "Devil Woman" by Cliff Richard? ELO’s "Evil Woman"?

And since his daughter was once on the show, maybe DWTS can trot out Ozzy to croon Sabbath's "Black Sabbath" (a song from that group's debut album) while O'Donnell gets her boogie on and tosses some hexes the audience's way?

Or fresh off his outstanding Grammys performance, Mick Jagger might agree to show up to sing "Sympathy for the Devil" while O'Donnell struts her stuff?

Concerning her decision whether to appear on the show, O'Donnell is reportedly soliciting opinions on her Facebook page. But I think I'll pass. I don't want to rub her the wrong way and then get leveled with some sort of curse on my ass.
