Making the Band: Does Sarah Palin have what it takes?

Posted: Updated:

Now even though she declined to rap on Saturday Night Live, is Sarah Palin holding out on us when it comes to busting a move? She managed to hop and bop in the background of Amy Poehler's rousing rhyme. And when asked who could hold their own as a Pussycat Doll, head PCD Nicole Scherzinger recently told People that she thinks Alaska's governor has what it takes to be a bombshell baby. "She seems like a headstrong woman, a tough chick. And she's hot!" Can you imagine it? Sarah Palin slinking down the leg of first dude Todd, "Don't cha wish your girlfriend was hot like me?"

And just look at the lyrics for the PCD's latest song, "When I grow up." "Now I've got a confession, when I was young I wanted attention." Pageant queen! "When I grow up, be on TV, People know me, be on magazines." Does Newsweek count? "They used to tell me I was silly, Until I popped up on the TV, I always wanted to be a superstar." I can see it now. "When I grow up, I wanna have groupies." Oh Sarah, you were a born pussycat doll!

But what about the other girl bands? Would they welcome Sarah with open arms? And what would P. Diddy say?

On the finale of Making the Band, Season 4, in a shocking move, Sean "Puffy" Combs ousted members D. Woods and Aubrey O'Day. What's a girl group to do with only three members, anyways? Someone has got to step up. At the Global Grind's "Countdown to Change" New York Launch party, I asked Aubrey if she thinks that Sarah Palin could fill her shoes. "You know, I don't really like to hate on women," she tells us. "But Sarah Palin really isn't my kind of girl. I really wouldn't want to be walking with her." And who is her kind of girl? "I'm an Obama girl; and I definitely think Hillary could be a part of Danity Kane. I'd walk with Hillary." Hill a DK girl? Let's see. "I thought that I should let you know. That my heart is damaged, so damaged, so damaged. And you can blame the one before." I could see it.

We next asked remaining member Dawn Richard if Sarah Palin had what it takes to make the band. "Oh no. We have too many opinions in that group," she tells us. "I think Michelle Obama would make a hot addition to Danity Kane. I would totally go with Michelle Obama. We would rock it."

And what about the boys? Making the Band's Day26 gave us their two cents. I asked them who would be the best addition to their soulful five. McCain perhaps? "No, no, no, no," says member Brian Andrews. "Obama! Obama would fit right in!" And why is that? "Obama's in shape," chimes in Day26's Michael McCluney. "He's fit. He could get the dance moves." Amen. We saw him bust a move on Ellen.

Who do you think has what it takes to make the band? Let us know below!
