EXTRA: Tom DeLay to Quit Dancing with the Stars

Too funny to miss: courtesy of Newsweek - Pop Vox

by Daniel D'Addario

Poor Tom DeLay. The former House majority leader is hardly the ideal contestant for Dancing With the Stars. One week, he almost dropped his dance partner. Another week, it looked like he had two left feet. And Monday night, neither of his feet worked: he was suffering from two stress fractures.(Afternoon update! Sources are confirming to People that DeLay will leave the show, as his stress fractures have become too painful to allow him to continue. It was a good sartorial run, at the very least.)

For much of the show Monday night, host Tom Bergeron made it seem like DeLay wasn't going to dance at all. Then DeLay hobbled on stage, dressed in a sparkling red Republican outfit, and he pulled off a mediocre samba—for an injured guy. Whew. Don't quit, Tom! With Tuesday's news that DeLay will quit Dancing, we hope these other politicos will be inspired to take whirl on ABC’s dance floor: Click link below for Pop Vox list of who could replace Tom Delay. Hint....funny.
