Tom Delay goes 'wild' on 'Dancing With the Stars'
We hardly know what to say. Yes, that’s Tom DeLay, the former Texas Republican congressman, making his debut Tuesday night on ABC’s "Dancing With the Stars." With partner Cheryl Burke, he danced the cha cha cha to — and we’re not making this up — "Wild Thing."
On the show’s busy website, DeLay is quoted as saying, “One thing I wasn’t prepared for in learning to dance was getting in touch with my feminine side.” We weren't prepared for that either. Remember, this is the guy whose hardball tactics as a lawmaker earned him the nickname “The Hammer.”
Said judge Bruno Tonioli: "You're crazier than Sarah Palin."
