Behold Tom "I would like the president to produce his birth certificate" DeLay.
I know, I know. Once upon a time, the Clothesline was the site for witty repartee and insightful political analysis. But lately, there's so much craptastic stuff going on in the good old U.S. of A. that we have gone all HuffPosty. There's more, you betcha.
This morning, Maureen Dowd wrote in the NYTimes:
...learning the tango from Cheryl Burke, his partner on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” who blessedly had never heard of the guy once dubbed “The Meanest Man in Congress” when he was first assigned to her.
“Cheryl says the tango’s macho, arrogant and aggressive, and I said, ‘That’s me,’ ” he recalled. (snip)
Is The Hammer funny or what?!
“You’re crazier than Sarah Palin!” (Stars judge) Bruno (Toniolli) shouted when a winded DeLay was done swiveling in a leopard-skin-sequin-trimmed brown get-up.
“I think that’s a great compliment,” DeLay told me afterward.
Once the Hammer tried to outfox Democrats. Now he’s trying to outfox-trot Donny Osmond. Once he whipped Republicans relentlessly to keep their votes in line. Now he says he and his daughter have “a strategy to whip the vote” on “Dancing.”
Etc., etc., etc.
Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
