When Dancing With The Stars
played the Clyde Drexler
two years ago, I was mildly surprised (and totally disillusioned
) that the ex-Portland Trail Blazer had descended
into the morass of "used-to-be's" and "never-was'es" who hoof it on the popular TV show.
But today's news
that former House Majority Leader Tom "The Hammer" Delay (R-Texas) will be on the roster when Dancing With The Stars' new season
airs next month makes the Drexler freefall into the obscurity hall of fame seem tame.
If there's any better evidence for the collapse of the once-formidable Republican Party than the fact that the once-almighty
Delay is boning up on the pasodoble and the fox trot, I'd like to see it.
