Dancing with the losers

After her 15 minutes of fame as a congressional candidate and a speaker at the 2012 Republican Convention, what's next for Mia Love? After hobnobbing with the House's dynamic Republican trio — Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan — resuming a quiet life as mayor of the small town of Saratoga Springs can't hold much excitement.

I suggest ABC's competition show, "Dancing with the Stars." It's the logical next step for failed Republican candidates or their families (just ask former Texas Rep. Tom DeLay or Bristol Palin). Even better, let's go with an all-Utah dance team, with political consultant and former Utahn Karl Rove as Love's partner.
