According to the New York Post, Cindy McCain was in talks with Dancing With the Stars producers to join the season 8 cast until her husband Johnny flat-out nixed the idea. As a person, I believe this was absolutely the right call — the idea of anyone associated with the McCain camp attempting to score a 9 on the samba during the first few months of Obama’s presidential term would be so embarrassing and awful. As a “journalist” who must cover DWTS for money, however, I am devastated for the same reason. John McCain was probably jealous because he wanted to learn how to do West Coast Swing in a red sequined vest. (No shirt.) Oh, well.
