GOP Crook Tom DeLay Thrusts Hips on Dancing with the Stars


Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay had his first outing on Dancing with the Stars last night. LOL at the hip thrusts.


And an ABC News interview:

  2. You are crazier than Sarah Palin !!!!


    The rest disgusting old thug --- but there was a day when a racist southern thug would not get a facelift, veneers, and dirty dance with a non-white woman on National TV.

    America we have come so far.
    We should be proud.

  3. as Carrie Ann says, he has a way about him, it's called creepy, particularly when he pointed at Bruno "video vixen from Elton John's 1983 I'm Still Standing" Tonioli. Also, Donny's a worse dancer than Marie.

  4. What a douche bag. He should be thrusting his hips in the mens prison showers.

  6. Strange. Weird. Disgusting. I will give him an incredibly small kudos for being a stick up the ass Republican that who is doing something outside of his staunchy white southern (blah blah blah) self.

  7. I think I barfed a little. Why is the vicious thug on TV?

  8. I refuse to spend even a millisecond watching this putrid scumbag try to rehabilitate his TRUE image and appear to be a 'fun loving good ole boy.' The truth is so far from that that even the 'fantasy' of this show can't remove the stench.

    Plus, I just hate that show....

  9. My Eyes! It's like a car wreck... you don't want to watch but you can't take your eyes off it.

    He was expelled from Baylor when caught painting an A&M building green & gold. He should have known then that he wasn't a very good criminal.

  11. I couldn't bring myself to watch it. I've never had that reaction before.

  12. Now look closely: does he have a wide stance ?

  13. :(

  14. I refuse to watch that show and told the producers so -- and why.

    What I now want to know is WHY the hell you're giving this son-of-a-bitch more publicity?

  15. Why do you bother covering this. It is not news, it has nothing to do with GLBTQ interests, and Tom Delay does not deserve the space it took to include him in the blog. I really just do not understand your need to report on this. I am so fed up with non-news, news on "newscasts", and though I do not hold Towleroad to the same standard, I would hope you make better choices than this. It is truly offensive.

  16. I'm so bitter that this douchebag's been paired with Cheryl Burke. She's a wonderful dancer and choreographer -- and a 2-time DWTS champion. She'll be out together with Mr. LAME-O soon enough. Not. Fair.

  17. I find it really ironic, or cynical, that Dancing with the Stars had one of the largest floats in the NY Pride Parade (with Cheryl on the float) and then followed it up by having DeLay, not only a shamed and corrupt politician, but also one that has been no friend to the GLBT community, on the show!
