McCain to Missus -- Mama No Mambo

1/16/2009 5:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Now that she won't have to deal with being First Lady, Cindy McCain wanted to bust out on "Dancing with the Stars" -– and sought a spot on the show.

But, according to the NY Post, Cindy's husband -- Senator John -- has told the Mrs. to step off. "Just before Thanksgiving," says a source, Cindy "started talks with producers to appear as a dancer on the show. She wanted to do it very badly."

Neither the show nor McCain's minions would comment.

She's way-hot, and McCain married up! It'd be cool to see her on the show.

Your Lameness    

Call me Queen of Lame, but I actually think she'd make a great addition to the show. She's very hip for a lady with a Brangelina-sized family and whose husband is one of the most prominent conservative figures right now...I like her very much. Boo to Mr. McCain for telling her "No way Jose"!

I didn't vote for McCain, but I think if Cindy wants to do the show...why not?? After all of the time she had to stand there and look interested on the campaign trail, and he tells her no?? What a jerk, so glad he didn't win.

She wasn't just sitting around while her husband campaigned, She was having an affair. Well actually, she stopped having the affair when she had to go on the campaign trail with her husband. It would be hard not to judge her on that alone.

Minions really. If they work for obama they are apostles. McCain, minions. Best you can do Harvey. No wonder you weren't making it as a lawyer.

As much as I don't like Cindy McCain because she and John apparently have no respect for marriage (except their own and how it came to be), I think that he thinks she's absolutely nothing to him but "the little woman." Men like John McCain may be strong in battle, but feel threatened by females in their personal domain. He'd much rather just keep pointing her out, as if she's a statue in his life, than to have her have a little fun of her own and make her mark in some way.

#7 - I don't know why Cindy should be told to "act like a politician's wife." What about the "first dude" of Alaska getting to race his "snow machines?" Why is that ok, and dancing is not?? Double standard or sexism...

John's a big meanie. She supported him and gave up her life during his campaign. He should let her have some enjoyment. Let her dance baile John.

Geez, she couldn't embarrass him any more than Sarah Palin did!! Maybe he still hasn't gotten over that bone-headed decision.

McCain is a NIMROD... see... He probably would have made her wear a Burqua and cover her face if she became first lady.. She should just do it.. I mean... He is on HER payroll !! McCain'd be a poor schlep without her.
