She may not come to the ballroom, but Bristol Palin's partner Mark Ballas brought the ballroom to Sarah Palin last week!

The Dancing With The Stars pro flew to Alaska where he tweeted this pic of his first meeting with the former Govenor.

"Me and Mama Palin..." he tweeted. "Alaska is awesome...."

I guess Sarah will finally appear on the show after all, if only in a video package of the pair's trip to Bristol's hometown.

Mark and Bristol are already back in LA working on their quickstep which they'll debut on Monday night. Will Sarah be a good luck charm for them or the kiss of death, like she was for McCain?
