It’s not just Bristol Palin doing the cha-cha in front of millions of “Dancing with the Stars’’ watchers: More Republicans are appearing on reality shows, according to the Los Angeles Times. Repu
blicans – both candidates and their families – are finding they can connect with ordinary Americans by appearing on TV shows. Former "The Real World" star Sean Duffy is running for Congress in Wisconsin while Palin’s mom, Sarah, is a Fox News commentator and will have her own show called "Sarah Palin’s Alaska."
“Dancing with the Stars” has already attracted conservatives such as former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay and conservative commentator Tucker Carlson. Even Sen. John McCain’s wife Cindy has considered appearing.
