Tom ‘The Hammer’ Tom DeLay will be on the popular show “Dancing with the Stars’. The Man who was the Republican Majority leader for years will try the old soft shoe. The are the same shoes that were felt squarely in congressman’s hind quarters when trying to get the votes to jam legislation through Congress. We will see if Congressman DeLay can make the transition from his persona of being a tough legislator to a graceful dancer. How long will he last? Well It’s Hammer Time.
Tom DeLay, the former House majority leader, is pulling out his dancing shoes for the popular ABC reality show “Dancing with the Stars.”
