    With his sexy dance moves and charasmatic stage persona, DeLay is setting a new standard that even professional dancers can admire. DeLay's charming personality and movie-star good looks even make you forget his resignation in disgrace and his indictment in Texas. How did Cheryl Burke get so lucky this season?

  7. I can see Canada from my house!

    Much as I am in favor of a politician doing in reality what they usually do metaphorically, is this really news? If Delay won a barbeque contest, would this make the national news?

    I hope he still has his Bug Killing business, he was horrible last night, although his toupee looked better than I remember it...

    Instead of dancing with the stars, Mr. DeLay should be dancing behind bars.

    Wat 'ya mean you can't teach an old dog a new trick? He did swell, as his partner did. They didn't win, but one could see they had fun.

    Just like most of them, he has no style and no grace. Enough said.

    Why is this news? It is news because not everything has to be so serious. There is more to life than reading and watching politics all day. To the conservatives, no one here is trying to spread hate by talking about DeLay's dancing. It just is what it is...terrible!

    DeLay is doing what you might call political "poll" dancing.

    republicans have no talent and can't dance!

    Another American criminal being rewarded for bad behavior. DeLay should be in prison.

    While I may not like his policies, I do admire his effort and enthusiasm in his dance moves.

    He really wants us to believe he is just Americas "little sweetheart." "Oh, What a Phony He Is." Now that's a real song he can dance to.

    Watched last night...he was suprisingly good and very funny...don't see any difference in him being on "Dancing" and Bill Clinton playing his sax, and Obama being on Letterman, except Obama is wasting out time and $$$$ getting his ego stroked by Letterman.

    Funny how the same rules never apply to liberals....

    Still pulling for Donny Osmond!!!!!
