Oh, look, it's time for another Sarah Palin rumor!

You've gotta be kidding me.  The new rumor apparently is that Sarah Palin is actively trying to follow the successful appearance of her daughter Bristol on Dancing With the Stars by competing on the show herself?

Give.  Me.  A.  Break.

Courtesy someone named Rob Shuler at some site called Popeater:

"Sarah was overwhelmed with what a great time she had at the show," an insider who was at the show tells me. "In fact she enjoyed herself so much that she mentioned to producers who greeted her that she would be open to competing herself next season."

 (Picture courtesy, used under "Fair Use" doctrine)

Something tells me that this insider is somewhat distorting the actual truth of the conversation.  (No, I wasn't there either, but come on.)  Perhaps this is one of the same "insiders" who had solid proof that the DWTS audience booed Governor Palin Monday night.

Seriously, gentle readers:  do you think that Sarah Palin is going to be stepping away from the 24-hour world of politics to devote multiple hours per day to dancing, particularly in the coming spring, which is traditionally (these days, at least) the time for presidential contenders (no, I don't know whether she'll run) to be throwing their hats into the ring?

This is what passes for news these days.

(Then why are you posting it, Snowed?  Because someone has to rebut these stories before they become truth in people's minds, that's why.)
