I have not been watching Dancing With The Stars. Unfortunately for my gag reflex I have glimpsed parts of the Tom DeLay (R-Indicted) performance thanks to television news shows who keep forcing clips on people like me who wouldn’t have seen it otherwise. This morning it happened again, and they were saying that in spite of injuries, the indicted former congressman vowed to keep dancing no matter what.
So naturally, when I read just now that he was dropping out, I thought there could be only one other reason: he must have been arrested! I say this because that red and white striped shirt with the sequined Republican logo on the back that he wore for that last dance was a crime! Seriously, did you see that thing? And those pants, well……ugh!
Actually, truth be told, he had to step down. (No pun intended I swear.) The stress fractures did him in. Or someone showed him the tapes. Oh well, whatever the reason, all fun things must come to an end eventually. At least this isn’t the first time it’s happened to him. He’s used to having to quit before he’s ready.
