Tom DeLay’s "Second Act" Premiers Tomorrow Night

I had to laugh when David Gregory, moderator for Meet the Press asked House Minority Leader John Boehner about whether he would follow in the “dancesteps” of former House Majority Whip Tom DeLay as the man we all used to call “The Hammer” prepares for his debut on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars tomorrow night.

From this morning’s MTP transcript:

MR. GREGORY: Finally, Leader Boehner, before you go, if you work hard, if you legislate, work with your colleagues, this can all be yours. Put it up on the screen. There he is, one of your predecessors, Tom DeLay, “Dancing with the Stars.” What a second act, huh?

REP. BOEHNER: I’ll pass.

MR. GREGORY: You’ll leave, you’ll leave the dancing to him?

REP. BOEHNER: All—it’s all his.

You had to see his face when he answered. Priceless. Clearly Boehner thinks that Tom DeLay has gone off the deep end in his latest project. A project that happily enough, premieres tomorrow night.

ABC is really hyping this, and DeLay is milking this for all it is worth.

Now, here is the problem. I am a Keith Olbermann fan and I don’t do TiVo. So I have a choice to make. Getting Olbermann’s take on the events of the weekend, or watching Tom DeLay make his foray into the world of looking completely gay.

An interesting turn of events if ever there was one.

Delay is a loser.

But this is another example of how Democrats are burning energy commenting on things that don't matter. Delay, Harvard profesor arrests, Joe "Goofball" Wilson, Kanye, ...

Focus on what we care reform.

Geez, Anon, lighten up. Scroll down and you will see plenty of angst poured out over healthcare reform. There are other things to discuss.
