Wild Thing

Tom-Delay-Dancing-With-Star.jpg

My favorite moment (feel free to take it out of context), and my tweet.

(screen shot: ABC. Video here.)

    I have a hard time picking a favorite moment. It was so bad it was an art form. And boy, does Twinkletoes have tiny little feet.

  • nenabeans

    It actually grossed me out. The brown polyester outfit really made the ’shit dance’ work.

    Yes, size matters….
    Now Tom Delay on “Dancing with the Man Eating Tigers” I would watch….

    All this photo needs is a blindfold and a cigarette dangling out of her mouth.

    What possessed him to do this?

    You wonder if Tom will take the “Hammer” monicker to cellblock C.

  • Dennis Quaranta

    He talks as though his enemies tried unsuccessfully to nail him, implying that he’s no longer under indictment. Is this true? If he somehow has managed to wiggle free from all the charges, he’d be better off keeping a low profile. On the other hand, if he still faces trial, it’s possible he wants to raise his profile as a different sort of crooked politician.
    He’s trying to pretend he’s not squirming. Remember his smiling mugshot?

    There’s nothing wrong with being short but the heels on his shoes just looked funky (and not in a good way).

    Pulling a Lynndie. Nice.
    Truly, if there is one organizing principle for the GOP it is repressed, closeted male homosexuality. It is the psycho-dramatic mainspring of all else. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  • Molly

    She is pointing and laughing.
    What’s so out of context about that?

    No – he’s still under indictment. It’s just that they’ve managed to delay it and delay it even further. (oh, isn’t that cute – a pun.)

    I saw this performance. I wondered if he would be up for repeating it with a guy named Moose or Killa in prison.
