ABC Family, Lifetime get political

Bristol Palin isn’t the only one with political ties showing up on the small screen – Vice President Joe Biden’s wife, Dr. Jill Biden, is going to guest star on an upcoming episode of Lifetime's “Army Wives.”

Nineteen-year-old Palin’s guest role on ABC Family's “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” is up first, airing on July 5, according to a statement from ABC Family. Palin will play herself in the episode as a friend of Amy’s attending a music program for teen mothers in New York.

Biden will also play herself in the “Army Wives” episode titled, “Mud, Sweat and Tears,” set to air on August 15, according to a statement from Lifetime.

Biden, who works to support military families and raise awareness about the sacrifices they make, will visit Fort Marshall to kick off the annual “fun run”and also visit with the military spouses to talk about the challenges they face while their loved ones are deployed.

    When important people start showing up on television shows, it makes me think they don't have anything else that is important to do.

      it's a way to get their message out since the majority of those glued to the idiot box for 10hrs a day are morons and never bother to get involved with important current issues and events.....
