I’m rooting for… Tom Delay?

Posted by ALmod on September 28, 2009

Apparently I have an underdog complex of some sort.  I have to root for them (and Mark Dacascos).

Of course Delay isn’t as good as the other competitors on Dancing With the Stars.  Every single one of them is either a performer or a professional athelete.  Tom Delay is a 62-year-old politician.  The odds aren’t exactly in his favor.

And yet, those things considered (and if you’ll ignore the creepy camera shots of his butt and the fact that he pulls his pants up to his chin), he’s done a pretty decent job.  This week’s tango was pretty darn good.  I feel bad for him that the ending slipped.  It would have otherwise been stellar, and I have to agree with Carrie Anne Inaba that he and Cheryl make a surprisingly decent couple on the dance floor.

Maybe he’ll be back next week.  I doubt he’ll win, but he’s becomming somwhat fascinating to watch.
