    Isn't this little boy supposed to be tried for something. What is wrong with our judicial system. Put him in jail where he is supposed to be. And by the by, Dancing With Criminals is banned from my TV set.

    I cannot understand why the producers of the program sank so low as to select Tom Delay to appear on the show. This cretin is a disgrace to the human race. He is just another disgraced right wing politician who needs to fade away.

    Oy! (an old fashioned SC word, for sure!)

    This is the one TV show I watch, other than the news. It is absolutely mindless entertainment, but even mindlessness has its limits! Tom Delay? Please, bring back Emmitt Smith, someone we can enjoy and put Tom DeLay back under whatever rock they found him!

    Tom Delay has oodles of controversies, and, obviously, he will defend himself w/ all his might to refute those charges. Charges? What became of them? Was he acquitted? While he is still waltzing w/ the wenches, can Eric Holder or his designste, look into these allegations and bring him to justice, if found guilty?

    This just makes the GOP look silly.......just like Palin going to Asia and speaking at some conference......she killed McCain and his bid for the Presidency and everytime this woman gives a speech she is going to kill the Republican party little by little until there will no longer be anyone that will want to vote for republican party........this man was such a low life that the only thing left for him to do is dance for his money.......he should be dancing with Palin.......their both losers

    I hope none of you watch. Then when his fans are the only ones voting, his victory will be inevitable. Ah...I love democracy...
