Tea Party's Christine O'Donnell Headed for 'Dancing with the Stars?'

Photo Courtesy - ABC News(NEW YORK) -- Tea Party politician and former Senate candidate from Delaware Christine O'Donnell says she's been invited to join ABC's Dancing with the Stars.

She wrote on her Facebook page, "Although I am utterly flattered, my initial thought was to decline, as 2 year old nephew has more rhythm than me, and my two left feet!!"

She asked her Facebook fans for their input, after which she updated her status to read, "The facebook comments about Dancing w The Stars list great pros and cons.  Thank you for your input.  Still undecided.  Book comes first."

That book would be the one O'Donnell is said to be working on.

O'Donnell lost her Senate race last year following a campaign in which she was forced to record a television commercial in which she declared she wasn't a witch, following the release of footage from a past television appearance in which she admitted having dabbled in witchcraft.

"Saturday Night Live" Spoofs Christine O'Donnell Ad 

(NEW YORK) -- Christine O'Donnell, the Delaware Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, was in Saturday Night Live's sights once again over the weekend, specifically, her recent TV ad in which she declares she's not a witch.  In the ad, O'Donnell dismisses a comment she once made on the TV series Politically Incorrect in which she stated she'd "dabbled" in witchcraft.

SNL spoofed the ad last weekend, with cast member Kristen Wiig portraying O'Donnell in a mock commercial in which she tells Delaware residents, "Isn't that what the people of Delaware deserve? A candidate who promises first and foremost that she's not a witch? That's the kind of candidate Delaware hasn't had since 1692."

She then proceeds to drop hints that she is in fact a witch, at one point mentioning that she'd moved from the "black forest of Germany" to Delaware almost three thousand years ago.  In the final seconds of the skit, the camera zooms out, revealing that Wiig's character is floating in the air, surrounded by ghostly images and a skeleton playing a piano.  Wiig concludes the sketch by saying, "I'm not a witch, but if I am, do you really want to cross me? I didn't think so."

For her part, O'Donnell tweeted on Sunday, "SNL skit was really funny...and I have to admit, her hair looked better than mine."
