    Sleezebags just seem to want more and more attention. I can't stand the man.

    HA HA HA HA HA HA.... guess this is the only job he could get after such a miserable, criminal performance in Congress!

    Can't stand the man and won't be watching. He ran out of Texas after being found guilty of manipulating district voting representation.

    Is this a joke?

    This person (DELAY) was the most partisan congresman in the history of the congress – It will be a total waste of time to even consider watching this show – which I will not do.......There is a place that is reserved for this man and it is not heaven.

  11. I can see Canada from my house!

    What's next, Rush doing figure skating? I hope everyone remembers how much his party tried to eliminate government funding for the arts. The only time a Republican supports the arts is when they decide to take the plunge and be creative with something other than weapons systems or people's lives, and thats a rarity.

    GOP= Creative Desert.

    POOR Cheryl, I love her, but CAN"T watch Delay on this show!

    I never liked Tom Delay (he is a raging nut!), but you people have to ease up a little bit. I think its kind of refreshing for a politician (or in this case former one) to do something "unscripted" for a change. Good for him!

    He can't dance. Republicans cannot dance and have no rhythm. Poor Cheryl. She is dealing with a GOP whiner.

    That fella is soooo creepy. All hat, no cattle.

    creepy creepy creepy.....

    Why stop with Delay? We could get a whole line-up of disgraced, amoral, Republican ex-office holders. Dick Cheney, Alberto Gonzales, Larry Craig, Mark Foley, among others, could trip the light fantastic all the while evading questions about their past indiscretions.

    Shame on ABC for glorifying that odious hustler Delay. He deserves a jail cell, not a starring role on network TV.

    Tom Delay is a posterboy for the Biirthers. He's one of the right wing loonies.

    To CNN:

    Why is this News? Or is this just an inane attempt to rile up the hatred from the liberals on this blog that have nothing but contempt for the GOP! Delay is SOOOO yesterday just like John Edwards. Funny how you always seem to give the litany of Liberal sleazeballs that have also violated the Country's trust, a free pass!

    Cheryl Burke is my favorite dancer on the show, but why is she being punished? I doubt if I'll watch him with that "snake oil salesman" grin.
    I'll miss Cheryl.

    He must be broke.

    Hm mm, maybe after the 2010 elections we would be seeing Pelosi, Reid, Boxer, Frank, and Dodd trying to get a gig on Dancing with the Stars?

    When my sons were young, we took them to the boardwalk in Ocean City, New Jersey. For a quarter they could start-up an old-fashioned machine that had a band of animated monkeys playing instruments. The children were absolutely fascinated by this. This reminds me of that: child-like neo-tards fascinated by the mindless movements one of their disgraced leaders. The only people this shadey, rightwing goon should be dancing with are his fellow inmates.
