ABC’s blowout hit show “Dancing With the Stars” (DWTS) actually asked former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain to shake his groove thang on the 14th season of the competition program, reports Los Angeles Times.

According to Cain’s right hand person, executive assistant Lisa Reichert, though, her 66-year-old boss nixed the idea:

“He can’t dance in an eight-count. He can only dance in a nine-count,” Reichert said, referring to Cain’s famous 9-9-9 economic tax plan that would replace the current tax code with a 9-percent business transactions tax, a 9-percent personal income tax, and a 9-percent federal sales.

The former Godfather Pizza CEO, who was vaulted into front-runner status for his party but stepped down from the presidential race after accusations of impropriety, is not the only one who is refusing to shake their money maker for this season’s dance show.

The media is also reporting that Republican presidential hopeful and staunch Tea Party supporter Michele Bachmann was also asked to kick up her heels on DWTS.  Bachmann took to her website and released the following statement about her phantom DWTS invite:

“In full disclosure, I did win a polka dancing competition when I was in the tenth grade at my alma mater, Anoka High School in Anoka, Minn. But, despite my tenth grade polka success and my lifelong love of ballroom dancing, the recent rumors are false. I will not be joining ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ ”

DWTS producers have tried in the past to mix politics with entertainment and garnered stratospheric ratings for the show.  So perhaps the show’s producers are desperately trying to replicate the success they had when Sarah Palin‘s daughter Bristol appeared on the show in late 2010. Folks were glued to their TV screens and Sarah’s mainstream America supporters catapulted her rhythmically challenged daughter to the finals much to the chagrin of liberals everywhere.
