DeLay, not Delay.

And hey, if Emmitt Smith and Jason Taylor can be on the show, Tom DeLay might as well. Though I wish he’d set up a PAC or some lobbying group and get to work dismantling liberal infrastructure.

Oh I think it’s still bubbling in the background. The left will keep some tiny part of it active because he’ll have the etiquette to stay off the hill while it’s going on.

LOL. Tom is so funny. He was just shaking his but on live TV before they broke for commercial. It looks like the guy has a great sense of humor.

He looks like he’s having a great time...so I guess I won’t call him Tom DeGay!

I read his partner, Cheryl Burke’s, comments on him a few days ago. She said she knew nothng of his politics and had to Google him to find out who he was. She said that he was really nice, a great family guy, and quite fun to work with. She had all good things to say about him.

I don’t watch the show at all, but I flipped over just hoping to catch him and to see the judges’ and audience’s reactions. So far, so good!

Scores were low but I’m going to call as often as permitted to insure he comes back. What a hoot.

I only watched tonight because of DeLay. I thought Tom was great - very funny, and not a bad dancer.

Great one liners - “I’ve got bigger critics than these judges” or something to that effect. Sure to be one of the wittier, sharper contestants if they keep him around.

You and the majority of the audience it seems. From what we've seen thus far, he will undoubtedly be in the finals.

I’ve tried calling several times and the line is busy so I guess we all have the same thought. I believe we can vote 5 times and I intend to do just that. IMHO his waltz was better than the fellow who came in 3rd place, hands down.

LOL! I hadn’t even thought of voting multiple times until I read your post...So I just tried again and got the recording that my voting in my time zone is closed, but that I can vote on ABC’s website. May give that a whirl!

Good luck. Website had some snags initially but finally worked itself out. Was tempted to see if it was because I was voting for Tom but didn’t want to waste the 10 votes allotted to vote for someone else.

I voted the maximum number of times I was permitted. First time I've ever voted on this show.

I'd like to see Tom survive for a few weeks to avenge that judges remark that he ‘was as crazy as Palin’!

Dang, I missed it doing homework with the kids...

They said that? Why do Republicans go on these shows and allow them to strike at us at every chance they get? Was he at least tolerable to watch or was he embarrasing?

He seemed to be having fun and was better at the 2nd dance the ‘waltz’....So I’d say he was fun to watch and not embarrassing at all.

Good grief. My cat has more rhythm than Delay showed. They asked Pat Buchanan first and he turned them down. He said he had better sense than the hammer. And I agree.
