Skip to comments.Dancing Tom DeLay: The pictures
Posted on 08/31/2009 11:37:13 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia
No one would have guessed that Tom DeLay's next career move would involve dancing, so the announcement that the former House Majority Leader would be a contestant on the upcoming season of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" raised the eyebrows of politicos everywhere.
The network has now released some promo photos of DeLay with his dancing partner, Cheryl Burke. DeLay appears to enjoying his new role, sporting sweat pants and a shirt from his organization Rio Bend, which works to improve the nation's foster care system. His own slimmer waistline can be attributed to the personal trainer he's been using to prepare for the show. In one picture, DeLay is sporting a harness of sorts, presumably as a way to improve his posture and positioning.
DeLay began rehearsals a few weeks ago and the new season of "Dancing" gets under way on Sept. 21. Many have speculated that DeLay's appearance on "Dancing" is, in part, an attempt to restore an image that has taken a few lumps over the years. DeLay earned the nickname "The Hammer" thanks to his tough politicking while in Congress and he remains under indictment in Texas on conspiracy charges. The case has not yet gone to trial.

Buzz off Tom. You’re beyond ridiculous!
Dance with Newtie!
I will vote for him and Chuck Liddell, lol!!! What a wonderful wacky world we live in.
I believe that Tom has been competing for years in amateur competition and has done very well.
He’s the dark horse...
As for the indictments by Ronnie Earle: Oh puhlease.....
Sarah Palin should be doing this gig, not Tom DeLay. Think of all the free publicity should would get! Priceless.
Next season ...
Dancing the Argentine tango, Mark Sanford and his partner ...
Sarah Palin should be doing this gig,
Apparently she doesn’t know how to say yes.....
I guarantee he is the first eliminated.
Good. If it keeps her from spectacles like this...
Not likely. His partner is a multiple winner in this competition. Her fans alone should keep him there through the first week.
Chuck Liddel?!? Now that’s sad.......
You obvious never seen the show. I’d be surprised if he doesn’t make it to at least week 6.
He will do much better than most think.
He will kick your arse if you dont vote for him? lol
I promise that I have never seen the show.
I will not watch this show this season...SHAME ON HIM FOR SHAMING US ALL. It’s all one big joke to these people..the ultimate narcissism...however you spell it...I’m too mad to spell check!
