Have Title, Need Plot

I love this title for a semi-comedic political novel: A Bright Shiny Object. A Sarah Palin-like character, faux Keith Olbermann, Bill O'Reilly, usual other politicians and pundits. A lobbyist and Senator or two.

Now, someone give me a plot to make something of this.  Thanks!

Why not set the novel in a series of debate preperation sessions for your candidate? Each chapter could highlight how the staff tries to simplify complex issues to her level; i.e., boiling down the complexity of stellar physics to explain why there are so many "bright shiny objects" in the night sky.

you can then have pundits critique her performance.

Might be tough with "Veep" out there. How about placing it in a small town with a power-mad, mom-in-tennis-shoes type?
