Is Chace Crawford being recruited to revitalize the Republican party?

Chacecrawford Senior Senator Arlen Specter defected from the Republican party last week, but the GOP is not to worry! "Gossip Girl" star Chace Crawford may be coming to their rescue.

According to US Weekly, the conservative-skewing Fox News Channel has invited Crawford to this Saturday's White House Correspondents Dinner as a guest of the network.

Apparently, Fox News has also extended invites to Sarah Palin and Matthew Modine, but neither of them are going to bring the youth and sexiness of "Gossip"'s Nate Archibald, are they?

L. O. L.

I mean, I know Chace is from Texas, but I'm pretty sure not everyone from the Lone Star State is a registered Republican. Does anyone know if Chace is even interested in politics?
