Herman Cain will not dance with the stars

Former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain will not be lacing up his dancing shoes anytime soon.

The Godfather’s Pizza founder was approached by ABC to be a contestant on “Dancing with the Stars,” the reality competition show which pairs “stars” with professional dancers.

Cain quickly jitterbugged back from the offer.

“He can’t dance in an eight-count. He can only dance in a nine-count,” Lisa Reichert, Cain’s executive assistant told the Atlanta Journal Courier in a nod to Cain’s 9-9-9 tax plan.

Former “Dancing” contestants include Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol Palin, and The Daily Caller’s own co-founder, Tucker Carlson.
