Tom Delay is the PERFECT kind of Republican politician....

...RETIRED!


Why all the fuss about him being on Dancing With the Stars?

It means he's not in congress!


Let him be on the show. Hell, let him win the thing for all I care.

As long as he's not setting US policy in any way, I don't give a shit what he does in his copious spare time. In fact, I hope he has lots of useless things to do with his spare time.


It's means he's not fucking us over anymore.

1. He's a better dancer than he was a Congressman, that's for sure.
I couldn't believe it when he did the sliding-on-the-knees bit.

2. He is Sex-Ayyy when He's Dancing and Shaking that Little White Tushy of His....
My foot starts shaking and I swear, it's better than PRON!

:sarcasm:

His behavior is repulsive on so many levels, not least of which is that he's not in prison.

6. Exactly.
Hmmm, I wonder if Palin can dance...

I can think of many Republicans I'd rather see on DWTS than anywhere near being able to have an influence on public policy.

7. On Countdown Lawrence O'Donnell referred to him repeatedly as "The Indicted Tom DeLay."
I thought that was good.

9. I thought he was bad. It was an easy routine and his partner is
so good, she made it easier for him.

He was amusing, and since it's an entertainment show, I guess that's all that matters.

When I do, you are free to comment on my performance.

By your rules, a person can't express an opinion on a message board unless he or she is a professional in the occupation on which she or he is commenting?

I guess we must have a lot more Senators and Presidents on this website than I realized!!!!
